Few - including Snowy White himself no doubt - would have thought that a year after leaving Thin Lizzy he would appear on Top Of The Pops again; this time with a hit single from his début solo album, White Flames. I recall Steve Wright's BBC afternoon radio show (surely he hasn't been there all this time!?) was largely responsible for the popularity of "Bird Of Paradise". But the song isn't very representative of White Flames, which is a real melting pot of musical genres. Drummer Richard Bailey (Jeff Beck - Blow By Blow) and Kuma Harada (bass) made a classy rhythm section. The booklet doesn't credit any keyboard players but these were Jess Bailey and Godfrey Wang.

After the success of the single, both "Bird Of Paradise" and "Lucky Star" were re-worked and the lp has its running order re-jigged on the CD - this gives a heavy emphasis on instrumentals at the beginning, which works really well. Musically, I'd describe White Flames as often sounding like: "Snowy White meets Colosseum II, Peter Green and Al Stewart with a contemporary (for the time) feel - a bit of Dire Straits and new wave pop - even Duran Duran and Nik Kershaw - and a bit of retro, with hints of Hendrix and Santana, along with some Thin Lizzy thrown in for good measure (!)". Somehow it all works, and if you think that sounds an interesting mix and haven't come across White Flames before here's a quick look at the CD:

"Open Carefully" - An instrumental, which has a new wave feel (yes, really) to the start and then turns to jazz-rock before Snowy lets rip with a trademark solo, drenched in blues. It leads neatly into ...

Snowy White, legendary guitarist - well, legendary if you know a huge amount about rock and make the connection that he played on tour with Thin Lizzy for a very brief period...very very brief, only bested in briefness by Midgue Ure....ahem, start again. Snowy White, articulate lyricist and vicalist who plays a mean guitar. Don't bother yourself with anything else he may have done prior to his "solo" career, it means nothing. He hit the music scene big time with the single "Bird of Paradise" featured here....but of course it isn't the best track on the album, it's just the catchiest tune, single fodder. Almost everyt track here stands up well to sole scrutiny as a "classic". Anmd unlike many other guitar playing artists, he actually plays his guitar quite a lot. Doesn't just pad out the album with a lot of daft amateurish singing (erm, move aside Eric), but actually plays his guitar! Must-have music for any serious collection.

One of the few Snowy albums I have always owned. Wore out the LP so I had to get the CD. Mostly good tunes, great musicianship and and few truly unforgettable moments.
