    A new Christmas album with a who's who of hard rock artists and others. Very cool and very AOR. I like it very much and I will definitely be purchasing this.

    NORTHERN LIGHT ORCHESTRA highlights majestic, orchestrated rock music featuring soaring vocals, incredible guitar solos worthy of true 'guitar hero' status, and pounding rhythms sure to impress and invigorate the baby boomer generation that grew up on what is today classic rock! Combined with the talents of executive producer and longtime record mogul Russ Regan, (responsible for over 800 million record sales with such artists as NEIL DIAMOND, ELTON JOHN, and BARRY WHITE as well as soundtracks such as Flashdance and Jesus Christ Superstar), NLO is slated to become a seasonal live performance and recording entity that provides the very best in entertainment!

    The brainchild of re-mix keyboardist/writer Brian Stewart (BACKSTREET BOYS, ROBERT PLANT, HALL & OATES, POE) and produced by industry veteran Ken Mary (HOUSE OF LORDS, TRIK TURNER, ALICE COOPER, BEACH BOYS), NLO is designed to create a total musical experience combining the powerful drama of Webber and Rice's Jesus Christ Superstar with the emotionally moving musical styles of ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA, YES, and KANSAS. Vocalists and musicians appearing on NLO have been responsible for the sale of over 200 million albums worldwide and include members and former members of household names such as the BEACH BOYS, SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE, ALICE COOPER, SURVIVOR, STEELY DAN, FIREHOUSE, MEGADETH, SISTER SLEDGE, QUIET RIOT, VANILLA FUDGE, WINGER, BOB CARLISLE, GUNS N' ROSES, GRAND FUNK RAILROAD, KISS, HOUSE OF LORDS, and WHITESNAKE, just to name a few. Live performances will highlight a spectacular light and video presentation, theatrical movements, as well as incredible musicianship all assembled to tell the story of the birth of Jesus Christ over two thousand years ago.

    The new nine-track release of Northern Light Orchestra, The Spirit Of Christmas, provides merely a hint of what is to come, with nine additional tracks already in production for next year

    Hmmm...wonder where this idea came from? Aside from Robin McAuley, the vocalist don't appeal to me whatsoever.

    So if it sounds like YES, ELO and Kansas why can't they have those guys in the band! I wonder how true it is that it will sound like that...

    I agree. The musicians are great picks, but this person really fell short on picking the vocalist. I'm not saying they're not talented, but this project would be more appealing if rock vocalist were chosen instead of the guy that sang Butterfly Kisses for Heaven's sake! :lol:
