Favorite Recordings and Charles Maurice proudly present the 3rd edition of their acclaimed AOR Global Sounds compilations series. Another brilliant selection of 14 rare and hidden tracks produced between 1976 and 1985 in various parts of the world. On AOR Global Sounds Vol.3 DJ and producer Charles Maurice delivers again a fine overview of the AOR and WestCoast influences for many artists in the late 70s and early 80s. Even more than on previous volumes he selected highly forgotten productions deeply infused with Disco and Soul flavors. Many of these great gems were naturally produced through all the USA often made by artists with a very short career and as private press. For example Jeff Silna only recorded this amazing song after winning the competition of a long gone Miami radio station the Stratus project started around 1974 in Rhinelander Wisconsin and was a band led by Bob Ackley who only released this 7 single in 1976 after recording a full album and doing a few gigs around Michigan John Kontol (Jon Konteau) however having credits for a few productions and appearances and still acting as a musician never released another LP after his heartbreaking experience with Erect Records that never rewarded him for his work and even change his name against his consent as for Dirt (In The Sky by 7 Days Unlimited whose both members were from Pittsburgh area where a lot of dirt was literally flying in the air the song was released in 1980 on a very limited 500 copies 7 single. But this kind of stories and waste of talent is not solely and American privilege from Willy Santana (member of Placa Luminosa) in Brazil and Funky Team in Sweden to Stacey and Out Of The Fog in Canada this 3rd edition proves again if necessary the international scope and fervor of this music scene and the surprising amount of great music that go unnoticed at that time. Fully remastered from originals with great attention to sound quality as always AOR Global Sounds Vol.3 (19761985 selected by Charles Maurice) is presented by Favorite Recordings in a gatefold vinyl double LP and as CD.
