BLAST FROM THE PAST : BAD ENGLISH - BACKLASH (AOR/Melodic Rock, 1991-Epic Records)

Bad English was an American/British supergroup that was originally formed in 1987. Bad English consisted by the extraordinary vocalist John Waite, Neal Schon on guitars, Jonathan Cain, Ricky Phillips and Dean Castronovo.

The first album, eponymously titled, was a big seller containing three hit singles: the number one hit "When I See You Smile" written by Diane Warren, the top 10 hit "Price of Love," and "Possession." Another track from the debut album, "Best of What I Got", was featured in the soundtrack to the 1989 feature film Tango and Cash.

The band's second effort, "Backlash" was released in 1991 and it was a brilliant sample of pure melodic rock bliss. It was 'punchier' and featured some gem of songs such as "Straight To Your Heart", "Time Stood Still", "Dancing Of The Edge Of The World", "Pray For Rain" and "Savage Blue".
