Pat FrancisAlbum Review, MusicLeave a Comment

Twin sons of 50’s teen heartthrob Ricky Nelson burst onto the musical landscape in 1990 with their debut release “After The Rain.”

Calling themselves simply “Nelson” brothers Matthew and Gunnar immediately became MTV darlings and scored a #1 hit song with “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love And Affection.”

Three more top 40 hits followed with “After The Rain,” “More Than Ever” and “Only Time Will Tell.” Their debut album eventually went on the sell two million copies scoring the duo their first RIAA Platinum album award.

Finally after 27 years this top 20 album is getting a proper vinyl release via Friday Music. The album has been impeccably remastered from the original Geffen Records tapes by Joe Reagoso & Nelson at Friday Music & Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA. The disc has been pressed on 180 gram vinyl and comes housed in a gatefold sleeve that includes all the song lyrics and track by track notes from Matthew and Gunnar.

Plus, for a very limited time, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson are celebrating the release further by signing a photo which will be enclosed with each LP, truly making this a nice collector’s item for the rock lover in all of us.

So what are you waiting for, rock fans? Relive the 90’s pop rock scene with one of the best albums of that era “After The Rain” via glorious 180 gram vinyl.
