Another performance by Joe Lynn Turner in Greece, almost five years since the last one with Over The Rainbow, and if the presence of ex-members of the legendary band, as well as Blackmore’s son, Jurgen, was the perfect excuse to indulge into an appropriate setlist, that wasn’t the case on Sunday night’s gig. Why should Joe and his Italian band play only Deep Purple and Rainbow songs?

Joe Lynn Turner posted as message on Facebook for Deep Purple’s induction at the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame, as well as Ritchie Blackmore: “Congrats to Deep Purple for their long overdue induction ...And I am proud and blessed to be a part of the DP legacy.
However...Blackmore's absence at the ceremony was truly noticed. His credo always was and is to know your own truth and walk your own path... follow no one. A true 'outlaw' til the end.
So I am humbled and touched by the recent Blackmore post concerning my work with the band. His respectful and supportive comments of my efforts on the ‘Slaves and Masters’ album were better than any 'award' I could receive especially from an organization that has 'lost the point' many years ago. I agree that ‘Slaves and Masters’ is a great album as our collaborations have always been a mix of magical chemistry and artful integrity that will stand the test of time.
My heartfelt thanks and sincere respect to a true original."---JLT

Another show of the Greeks’ favorite Joe lynn Turner means one thing right away: a packed venue with hardcore fans that are ready to show their love to this great performer. What if he had played here before less than a year before, MODU was filled to the brim!

On a recent interview he gave to Eddie Trunk Joe Lynn Turner slammed Ritchie Blackmore about the re-incarnation of Rainbow commenting that the fans deserve something more than a covers band. Joe also said that it’s a mistake to use replacement musicians because Blackmore is a huge icon and deserves better than that. The singer also commented about his exclusion of the project: Well, I was shocked, only because for over a year… See, the truth is I wanted an authentic lineup for RAINBOW. I think the way that it should have gone down is an authentic lineup. I was talking to [bassist] Bob Daisley, [drummer Bobby] Rondinelli, [bassist] Roger Glover, [keyboardist] Don Airey… There's a whole bunch of guys out there that were really willing to sort of get involved with this… open up their schedules and get involved. And, apparently, Ritchie didn't wanna do that. He also expanded on how Blackmore’s manager (and mother in law) used his name as a member of the new Rainbow lineup, which wasn’t true and he also mentioned his ideas and proposals of making an extravagant Rainbow reunion followed by a live album and DVD etc. He once again expressed his surprise about the band Blackmore is joining and he said about the man in black himself: You've gotta understand something: he doesn't talk to people; he talks through people. I talked to Dr. Drew Thompson, I talked to Carole Stevens… I talked to these people instead of him. He always puts them in front of him so he doesn't have to actually converse with me — or converse with anyone, for that matter."

Joe Lynn Turner visited Greece once more for an unplugged mini-tour where he was playing mostly covers, not only of his own material, but songs that influenced him since childhood as he said. In the interview he gave to bombed us with news and exclusives. He talked about the brand new Sunstorm video which was shot in Vikos canyon that you might have already watched on YouTube, his top secret at the moment collaboration with a Swedish producer as well as his plan to go on tour with “originals” only next year. Of course, he couldn’t help ourselves and not ask him about Ritchie Blackmore’s return to rock, about which didn’t hold anything back. Enjoy!

Los Angeles - In a career that spans nearly 30 years and includes over 60 album credits, Joe Lynn Turner remains one of rock and roll's most distinctive, soulful and expressive vocalists. Best known for his work with hard rock band Rainbow, during his career, Turner fronted pop rock band Fandango, and had stints with Yngwie Malmsteen and Deep Purple. From the mid 1990s, he worked with various musical groups (Mother's Army, Hughes Turner Project, Sunstorm, etc.), while pursuing a solo career.
Now, much to the excitement of Joe Lynn Turner fans worldwide, Cleopatra Records is issuing a vintage unreleased live album from the vaults of legendary hard rock vocalist of the mighty Rainbow titled “Street Of Dreams - Boston 1985”. Recorded during the tour of Turner's newly released debut solo album “Rescue You”, the set includes a couple of nods to Rainbow with brilliant renditions of “Stone Cold,” (Rainbow's first ever Top 40 US single) as well as "Street Of Dreams!”
Says Joe about the concert recording, “That night at the Boston Paradise, it was outstanding. I can remember seeing the audience and I remember there was an awkward pillar - I guess it was a support column in front - not directly in front, but enough to block some of the view. But the stage was an actual concert stage. Aerosmith and all those guys used to always play there, the Paradise.
“So I can remember actually going on and playing the set, how it felt because it was absolutely exhilarating, and the audience was just crazy.”
A year out from departing Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, whom he led through three classic albums earlier in the decade, Turner had just released his first solo album, “Rescue You”, produced by Roy Thomas Baker. This live show was, for obvious reason, weighted towards Rescue You.
Joe recalls, “This was our first tour out, and I’m not sure if we were opening for someone at the Paradise, but if we were, then they had a pretty difficult time because the crowd was absolutely bananas for us, and we were hot. We were really on top of our game, the whole band and it sounds it, you can hear it, everyone is playing with incredible energy and enthusiasm and very precise.”
Accompanying Turner was the band that recorded the album, a tight unit of Bobby Messano (guitar, background vocals), Alan Greenwood (keyboards), Chuck Burgi (drums) plus one newcomer, Barry Dunaway (bass).

Track List:
1. I Found Love
2. Losing You
3. Soul Searcher
4. Young Hearts
5. Endlessly
6. Rescue You
7. Stone Cold
8. Street Of Dreams
9. Feel The Fire
10. Guitar Solo / Good Girls Gone Bad
11. Get Tough
12. On The Run
13. Them Changes
