The President: By Appointment Of (1983)

This is another album that’s on the cusp between Westcoast AOR and the harder mid-Eighties sound, which developed into melodic rock. At times it is reminiscent of Journey, Foreigner or Starship, but with a lighter touch.

Nonetheless it’s a good album with some good tunes played well. “You’re Gonna Like It” was released as a single and contains a Starbuck approved xylophone solo. They were a Dutch band, I believe, who released a second album in 1985 on CBS (Muscles) and then disappeared. Pim remerged some years later in a band called Valensia.

Anyway, see what you think.
