Track Of The Day: Nelson
Nelson became huge news in 1990 with the release of their mega-selling debut album After The Rain. They’ve just released a live album from that era, which provides the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day.
Joining twins Gunnar (guitar/lead vocals) and Matthew (bass/lead vocals) Nelson in the band’s live line-up were Bret Garsed (vocals/lead guitar), Joe Catchcart (vocals/guitar), Paul Mirkovich (vocals/keyboards) and Bobby Rock (drums).
In a two-year period from 1990, the played at venues ranging from 1200 to 60,000 capacity, appearing on the bill with the likes of Tyketto, House Of Lord, Enuff Z’Nuff and Cinderella.
Everywhere they went, Nelson impressed with their four-part vocal harmonies, great musicianship and tremendous showmanship, all backing up a raft of excellent songs.
Sadly, though, there are hardly any official recordings from this tour. Which is why Perfect Storm – After The Rain World Tour 1991is something to savour.
To give you an idea of what Nelson were like onstage two decades ago, you can download the song Bits And Pieces for free right here.
