JOSEPH LEE GOOD – S/T, (Self-released 89, Wood/Hill Music Groud reissue 04). How he didn’t get a record deal at the time with this keyboard-driven AOR masterpiece is beyond me. Recommended album if you’re into classic 80s sound.
This extremely rare 10 track CD was self produced and privately released in the USA in 1989. If you are looking for top notch AOR in the vein of STAN BUSH or AVIATOR, look no further. This one comes with my highest recommendation for a disc that has been sought after by collectors for many years. Now is your chance to add this extremely hard to find CD to your collection

Only discovered these days, but this is a pearl in the AOR genre. For every AOR freak out there, this is a sure MUST. Glad to see that this is released !!!
This is a long-forgotten gem- in classic mould of Stan Bush, After ours etc. Worth checking out.
Indeed, a gem and a forgotten one ! Time for all real AOR lovers here to check this one out ! You won’t regret it !
Its a completely awesome CD and Joes definitely got a great voice. You really should check out this CD and believe me, it is completely awesome.
Enjoyable slice of AOR, well played and produced (especially for an Independent label). Stan Bush is mentioned above, and is a pretty good comparison in places. This is a good one to track down (not that easy to find and quite pricey at $30.
Very nice 80s AOR that will please any fan of the genre. ‘Talk To Me’ is a throwaway track, but the rest is very enjoyable. 8.5/10
Great indie album of the late 80s; a very interesting release…”Flirting Eyes”,”Whens The Last Time You Felt Like A Woman”,are very good tracks then the best ones for me are “Love You Like I Love You”,”Time To Come Home” & “Letters In The Rain”..there’s a song that basically sounds like a Paul Sabus material(“Won’t Stop Loving You”,catchy and melodious)…buy this album and enjoy it!.90/100
