Biography

Three decades have passed since a restless, wild-eyed teenager from northwest England first packed his bags for London to pursue his passion for music, and though he has enjoyed formidably staying power, chart-topping records and sold-out concerts around the world, John Waite’s hunger has never diminished – it has simply become something much more complex.

Digitally remastered edition of the fourth solo album from the British vocalist. Rover's Return was Waite's last US Top 100 chart album. Within a year of its release, he was fronting AOR supergroup Bad English. Beat Goes On.

In my opinion this was John Waite's best AOR effort next to Bad English. He brings on Desmond Child (Bon Jovi), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple) & Diane Warren for his background vocalists. John McCurry (Alice Cooper, Robin Beck, Billy Squier & Kane Roberts) handles the guitar work and John Waite sings his heart out. The songlisting is:

1. These Times Are Hard For Lovers

2. Act Of Love

3. Encircled

4. Woman's Touch

5. Wild One

6. Don't Lose Any Sleep

7. Sometimes

8. She's The One

9. Big Time For Love

If you don't have this cd get it, you will love it.

John Waite will go down as the "Missing You", "When I See You Smile", guy who was also in the Babys also. That's a shame as he's put out PLENTY of top notch, solid material over his lengthy material. Any fan of his work knows that, but the stations he gets airplay will only know him from his largest hits. That's too bad as he's delivered again and again great AOR.

This album, coming out a couple of years after "Missing You" (from No Brakes), and "Every Step of the Way" (a good rewrite of Missing You that should have been a bigger hit and is mysteriously missing from any Waite greatest collection) from the spotty but decent Mask of Smiles shortly after No Brakes has many unknown pleasures.

I do recall the release, and the 1st single rocked in a Bon Jovi-ish way (Desmond Child had a hand in the album), and was much better than its #53 chart placing would indicate. Still, it's also missing from all of Waite's hit compilations. It's a solid rocker that stays in your head. I've learned to like Encircled though it's not my favorite on an album that also includes excellent ballads, with the obvious standout being the impassioned, heartfelt "Act of Love." Other worthy ballads are "Don't Lose Any Sleep" that made the bottom of the top 100, but should have been a larger hit, and is WAY BETTER than Starship's version, though I like a lot of that band's material. Waite delivered his usual soulful vocal on that song that made it a keeper. Also, "Sometimes" is another great ballad that's lost in an album that never really got its due upon release in 1987. I do like some of the other rockers (Wild One, She's The One) as well, but they seem to have that dated, 80's sound, whereas the ballads are more timeless.

I always loved this album. So to find it on CD just adds to my collection. John Waite is such a talented singer/ song writer. This is a must for his fans.

This is and will continue to be one of my favourite albums from one of my all-time favourite singers. Between the Babys and Bad English and after the solo success of Missing You came this album, named curiously after the pub in Coronation Street I believe. From the unashamedly commercial hit These Times Are Hard For Lovers this album rocks through to the end and forms a perfect prelude to the first Bad English album which followed soon after. If the riff to Encircled sounds familiar throw on Alice Coopers Poison and realise where the riff first began-right here. Wild One and She's the One rock along as well but my favourite song on the album is the 12-bar Woman's Touch. Admittedly this is probably due to the great opening scene of the Jim Belushi movie The Principal where the song was used. One of the greatest single scenes in any movie ever-still makes me laugh-and right along underneath is John Waite bopping along. Mr.Waite is a rare talent who continues to put out fine, if now a bit more mellow, material and this is definitely one of his best efforts.

Really this is a test to probe that John is more than "Missing you" . For me, this is great. New ballads and a few support of "Solid gold" TV Show in that time. For eighties fans, it is very good. "Act of love" is great and if you like Bad English you will like this one. Not to much rock but great ballads.
