Labels on the vinyl are different to those of the normal discs and are written in French language. =======================================================

This man was amazing. He only had two days to pretty much get the whole set complete, he did a great job. He added his own licks to Flying High again, and Mr. Crowley, the recording sounds incredible. He deserves tons of credit !

Bernie Torme played seven shows with Ozzy Osbourne over a 10-day stint with the band, then left, to be regarded as a sell-out / cash-grabber. The opposite is true of this amazing Irish guitarist, who considers this LP as one of his favourites. Oh YES!!!

Perennial underdog, heavy metal/hard rock guitarist Bernie Torme flirted on the fringes of Rock Stardom throughout his career but never quite made it – working with the likes of ex-Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillian, Atomic Rooster and Ozzy Osbourne, and later going on to form the group Desperado with ex-Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, ex-Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, and bassist Marc Russell. Originally released in 1985 and produced by John MCoy (also ex-Gillian), Bernie Torme’s line-up on this great unsung classic of the mid 80s features the ever colourful Phil Lewis, of Girl fame, and who went on to front LA GUNS.

Back to Babylon is the first album by the band Torme.
Torme were a band featuring Irish guitarist Bernie Torme, whom the band was named after. Torme’s singer was Phil Lewis, who had previously been in the bands Girl and New Torpedos, and who is now in L.A. Guns. The band also featured bassist Chris Heilmann, who later played for Shark Island, and drummer Ian Whitewood.

I’m a big fan of L.A. Guns. I was looking for bands that Phil Lewis had played in & Torme came up. I typed TORME up and licensed to them & sounded great. It has a mix between the 70’s sound & L.A. Guns sound. So what did I do, well, I ordered this fantastic LP. If a fan of PHIL LEWIS of L.A. GUNS or BERNIE TORME, you should get this album & play it loud.

This was put out right before Phil Lewis went on to L.A.Guns. Bernie is a great guitarist and Phil sounds good. Pretty cool! Weird coincidence that on the back cover Phil Lewis is pictured holding a gun. He’s holding a gun on the 1st LA Guns album just a couple of years later! Anyway, this is a pretty good album. Sounds a little more like LA Guns than I thought it would(which is a plus as I’m a big LA Guns fan).

I really like Back to Babylon, what a quality, overlooked disc! Phil and Bernie sounded good together.

Really an interesting album. Phil Lewis after a couple of albums with Torme, went directly to L.A. Guns…best shots 4 me were “”All Around The World””,””Star””,””Burning Bridges”” this one is a solid song,””Family At War””, “”Frontline”” & “”Arabia”” both probably the best tracks of the album …85/100″”

Bernie Tormé – Guitar Legend hred master/ Sleaze Rock Frontman is known for saving the day for Ozzy Osbourne in the aftermath of Randy Rhoad’s tragic death, hits, world tours & international fame as Ian Gillan’s axe-man, 

forming Desperado with Dee Snider, & ex Maiden drummer Clive Burr, and his own band Electric Gypsies & Torme (with Phil Lewis of L.A. Guns/ Girl). 

This man was amazing. He only had two days to pretty much get the whole set complete, he did a great job. He added his own licks to Flying High again, and Mr. Crowley, the recording sounds incredible. He deserves tons of credit !

Bernie Torme played seven shows with Ozzy Osbourne over a 10-day stint with the band, then left, to be regarded as a sell-out / cash-grabber. The opposite is true of this amazing Irish guitarist, who considers this LP as one of his favourites. Oh YES!!!
