Graham Bonnet Digs Into Australian Archives


Reel To Real

While Graham Bonnet and his band are gearing up to deliver a new studio album, the veteran delved in his archives once again – to add more rarities to his methodical reissue campaign – this time concentrating on the period when his family lived in Australia. The singer didn’t stop working, once there, even though he slowed down, and these, for the most part previously unreleased, tracks he laid down in 1987-1992 form the first disc of em>”Reel To Real”: a box set, scheduled to see the light of day on June 29th, which also includes documents of two concerts played in Oz in 1989.

Of the studio cuts, three that kick of the collections aren’t from the Aussie era, though: they were planned for ALCATRAZZ’s fourth album, and “Rider” – albeit recorded later – harks back to that time as well, but there’s a lot of interesting numbers, including the covers of a LOVIN’ SPOONFUL and Ike and Tina Turner’s classics.
