Bio:

Lou Gramm (born Louis Andrew Grammatico; May 2, 1950) is an American rock vocalist and songwriter best known for being the original lead vocalist and co-writer of many of the songs for the rock band Foreigner. He also had a successful solo career. Gramm was the vocalist for many top-40 hits including "Cold as Ice", "Waiting for a Girl Like You", "I Want to Know What Love Is", "I Don't Want to Live Without You" and his solo hit "Midnight Blue". In 2009, the Lou Gramm Band released their self-titled album of Christian rock.AS THE VOICE of Foreigner, Lou Gramm sung on a succession of hit singles, helping to position the band as one of the most important hard rock acts of the 1970s and 80s. Of course, it was the twin ballads ‘Waiting For A Girl Like You’ and ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ which instantly elevated Gramm’s voice to worldwide recognition; a voice that was not only rich in vintage soul but also in emotion. From those hits on he was regarded as one of the world’s greatest vocalists and one likely to strike out on his own.Lou’s first solo album ‘Ready Or Not’ was a commendable affair and commercially successful enough to warrant a second release, in1989, with ‘Long Hard Look’. This time around, however, the record company looked to slightly contemporise his sound by bringing in producer Peter Wolf, who had worked with both cutting edge pop acts (Wang Chung) and traditional melodic rock bands (Heart, Starship). The results were spectacular, Gramm crafting an album of concise and precise melodic rock that took as much from Foreigner as it did from traditional blues based singers.Mostly surrounding himself with expected names, including former Black Sheep bassist Bruce Turgon, guitarist Nils Lofgren and his brother Ben Gramm on drums, the surprising addition was former Dio guitarist Vivian Campbell whom, alongside Gramm and Turgon, would later go on to form the highly regarded Shadow King.Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition, fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology, 16 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new interview with Lou Gramm.

Album:

Hear No Evil / Cherry Red Records are releasing a LOU GRAMM 3-CD career spanning titled “Questions & Answers ; Atlantic Anthology 1987-1989“, including his two solo albums for Atlantic, plus a third collectible disc which gathers together some of his Atlantic-era rarities, including two versions of ‘Lost In The Shadows (The Lost Boys)’ from the aforementioned soundtrack.‘Ready Or Not’ bonuses is represented by a “Rock Remix”, an “Extended Dance Remix” and an “Instrumental Remix” (all must have for ’80s fans). Hit single ‘Midnight Blue’ was issued in various formats, including a very collectible transparent blue 12 inch single, which featured an “Extended Remix” of the track.A single edit of ‘True Blue Love’ has been selected from “Long Hard Look”. To promote Lou’s 1987 debut, Atlantic Records released the very rare and highly collectible LP, “Questions And Answers”, a promotional album distributed to radio stations featuring Lou interviewed by Dan Neer as he discusses the genesis of the “Ready Or Not” record, and his career to date, in 1987.Lou Gramm had been recording with Rochester, New York based band, Black Sheep, since the early 1970s. Releasing two LPs for Capitol, Lou Gramm met his future bandmate and songwriting partner Mick Jones in 1975 when Black Sheep opened for Spooky Tooth in Rochester.Mick Jones was looking for a singer for his new band in 1976, and Black Sheep having split at the end of 1975, Lou was free to audition for Mick’s new group, Foreigner. Releasing their self-titled album on Atlantic Records in 1977, and featuring solid gold rock classics as ‘Cold As Ice’ and ‘Feels Like The First Time’, Foreigner were an instant worldwide smash.Going from strength to strength, the band hit a commercial peak in 1984 with the “Agent Provocateur” album and the chart topping power ballad, ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’.Perhaps choosing to return to a simpler melodic rock format, Lou Gramm released his debut solo album, “Ready Or Not”, in 1987. Produced by Pat Moran with Lou, it featured the hits ‘Midnight Blue’ and ‘Ready Or Not’ among a collection of songs that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on a Foreigner record.Having come from a very musical family, “Ready Or Not” is very much a family affair, featuring contributions from Lou’s brother Ben Jr. on drums and his father Ben Sr. on trumpet.The core of the band was Lou’s former Black Sheep bassist Bruce Turgon, who make a significant songwriting contribution to the album, plus guitar hero Nils Logfren.Lou also found time in 1987 to record a track for the soundtrack of teen horror flick, “The Lost Boys”.Returning to Foreigner for 1987’s “Inside Information”, Lou released his second solo album “Long Hard Look” in 1989. Capitalising on the success of his debut, it was produced by Peter Wolf (famed for his production and arrangement work for Frank Zappa, Heart & Kenny Loggins), “Long Hard Look” built on the foundations set by Lou’s debut.‘Just Between You And Me’ was another huge smash, making No.6 in the U.S. Hot 100, followed by the single ‘True Blue Love’. The album concludes with a cover of the Small Faces’ ‘Tin Soldier’.”This is a complete Lou Gramm ’80s solo-career release, not only including his 2 very good full albums, but collectible material impossible to find until now.
