***1983

A fantastic collection of singles by Roy White and Steve Torch – White & Torch.

So many of these songs should have graced the charts. Big epic tunes stylized like an 80´s version of The Walker Brothers.

Among my favorites are  Who´s Asking You(second version) Let´s Forget -which also appeared on Roy White´s solo album Shanty- Bury My Heart and of course Parade.

    I’d never heard of these guys until I heard a repeated edition of Roundtable on 6 Music, then I started looking for YouTube links, songs are great but audio quality not so great, now I can download this album on here, marvellous!

    You are a legend, you are helping bring me a lovely new 1980s I couldn’t find when I was 11 and 12 through all the chart fodder being force fed to me on Picadilly Radio ha ha ha :)
