* Rail was another one of those better-than-average 80s bands that somehow fell through the cracks. They played the kind of melodic hard rock that was so popular at the time, and seemed to make all the right moves (recording with Heart vocalist Ann Wilson, touring with Van Halen), but never achieved the success they deserved.
Fortunately the Dynasty record label reissued their early albums on CD for the first time in 2001. The Adio Special Edition reissue contains the 1984 Rail EP, the 1985 album Rail III, as well as multimedia content. All songs have been digitally remastered, and sound terrificmore.
Rail is a band worth discovering. If you’re a fan of 80s rock, particularly bands like Night Ranger, Aldo Nova, White Sister, and Autograph, chances are you’ll find Rail to be right up your alley.
RAILs “1-2-3-4 (Rock ‘N’ Roll)” is the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song you’ve probably never heard, unless you are a Girlschool fan (they have released it as a single in the mid ’80s). Written by someone other than the band, but brought to life by the classic Northwest cock-rock ensemble, the songs chorus screams: 1-2-3-4, what are we living for? Rock ‘n’ Roll! Rock ‘n’ Roll! 5-6-7-8, what do we appreciate? Rock ‘n’ Roll! Rock ‘n’ Roll!” It doesn’t get cheesier than that. However, put into context (it was originally released in 1984), the song is a timeless ode to when rock ‘n’ roll was fun, careless, and carefree. It wasn’t about wanting to kill yourself, for the most part. It was about having sex, doing drugs, and having a good time. Getting the gang together and partying until you dropped. And that is why RAIL is such a fun time. Adio, their second album, being released for the first time on CD, with bonus video and CD-ROM extras, is a dated, cheesy record. That is also what makes it so timeless and great. Get drunk to the mesmerizing solos of “Fantasy”, “Live With The Wind”, and “Her Majesty”. And don’t forget to blast the songs as front man Terry James Young rocks you with his almost-feminine sounding, classic rock screech. Let the good times begin. Put on some RAIL!
