Product Description

NEH Records brings you another great Melodic Rock import. A sure classic, Equilibrium features songwriters Martin Page (writer for HEART, BAD ENGLISH, STARSHIP), Richard Page (MR. MISTER), Jim Peterik (SURVIVOR), Bobby Caldwell (writer for CHICAGO and TOTO) and Steve Kipner (CHICAGO, THINK OUT LOUD) and a star studded line up of musicians including Steve Porcaro (TOTO), Neal Schon (JOURNEY, BAD ENGLISH), Tim Pierce (RICK SPRINGFIELD), Rocket Ritchotte (CHER, STAN BUSH), Guy Allison (DOOBIE BROTHERS, AIR SUPPLY), Ron Wikso (STORM, FOREIGNER), Kelly Hansen (UNRULY CHILD, HURRICANE), Jason Scheff (CHICAGO) and Jeff Scott Soto (TALISMAN). Great songs and great players make this a superb debut solo album for one of rock’s premier vocalists.

About the Artist

Fergie Frederiksen’s career started on the fast track when he replaced Tommy Shaw in the band MS FUNK in 1975. Shaw suggested Fergie as his replacement when he went on to join STYX. Shortly after, Fergie met Patrick Leonard and together they formed TRILLION and were signed by Epic Records. Patrick Leonard later went on to work as MADONNA’s musical director and he also wrote many of her greatest hits. In 1981 Fergie became the new vocalist in LeROUX, a band signed to RCA. Fergie played a huge part in making the all time classic record ”So Fired Up”. Next Fergie started ABANDON SHAME with his old friend Ricky Phillips, drummer Pat Torpey , Tim Pierce (MR. BIG, RICK SPRINGFIELD), and guitarist Scott Sheets of PAT BENATAR fame. Ricky Phillips gave a video to his friend Jeff Porcaro and almost immediately, Fergie was asked to join TOTO to replace singer Bobby Kimball and recorded ”Isolation” with them. After some well deserved time off, Fergie and Ricky Phillips decided to finally to do a album together, which was to become the Frederiksen-Phillips album. Fergie then signed with MTM and Ricky Phillips was called in to oversee the production of ”Equilibrium”.

If you had no idea that this album was released in 1999, you'd swear that it was an 80's recording. This is understandable when you realize that the songwriters on this album were responsible for some of the 80's most successful tunes. If you like 80's music, you'll really enjoy this album. Unless you are a Toto fan, you will probably have no idea who Fergie is. Think of it this way: if Toto and Chicago ever had a love child, it would be Fergie Fredericksen! Don't sweat it though. The man can hold his own and he's got some great songwriters and musicians (including Journey's Neal Schon), to back him up. The tunes are rockin', catchy pop music that'll still be in your head days after you've listened to it. For an import, you can't beat the price. Get one now while you can.

Fergie Frederiksen known by vocalist of TOTO's Isolation is now part of another great rock project Mecca produced by Jim Peterik which will be released around May 2002. Fergie's solo Equilibrium best represents his vocal appeal maybe better than Isolation. His vocal range is diverse enough to cover the songs written by different great songwriters who produced 80's big hits. Pure delight for 80's rock fan for sure.

Fergie first solo album is a good one.His voice doesnt quite shine as much as in TOTO's Isolation.And its lacking the great backup band as in TOTO.The writing,I think,is lacking also.But I enjoy it as I love Fergies kicking voice!

Fergie Frederiksen is the voice behind my favourite album of all time - TOTO's "Isolation". Some years ago I found a postal address for him and quickly sent off a sprawling, vaguely gushing handwritten letter to him. A few months later I was more than a bit surprised to find he'd sent me some original signed promotional material for his brand new solo album. I ordered it instantly.
Initially I was slightly disappointed - his voice doesn't soar QUITE as freely as it had 15 years earlier, and this time he wasn't singing songs written by the great David Paich. However after a few listens it grew on me, and there are in fact no weak moments on the CD at all. Fergie and longtime friend and producer Ricky Phillips chose excellent material from a wide range of sources to fill up the disc, including a few self-penned titles. Absolute highlights are "Mata Hari", "All For Love", "Died In The Midst Of A Dream" and "The Truth Is Good Enough".
Since releasing this album Fergie has done guest vocal spots on the two Radioactive albums (the 2nd is forthcoming) and was a member for the first "Mecca" album. All of these are only available as imports, but if you like TOTO (especially "Isolation") or Journey, you'll probably feel you've got your moneys worth.
Fergie is due to start work on his second solo effort soon - can't wait.
