    Info: Wild Horses was formed in the summer of 1978 by ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson and ex-Rainbow bassist Jimmy Bain. At an early stage the line-up featured former Stone The Crows and Wings guitarist Jimmy McCulloch and former Small Faces drummer Kenney Jones, but eventually stabilised with the addition of drummer Clive Edwards (ex-Pat Travers, Uli Roth) and guitarist/keyboardist Neil Carter (ex-Wilder, Gilbert O'Sullivan). This line-up recorded the Trevor Rabin-produced eponymous album in 1980, released by EMI who signed the band after their 1979 Reading Festival appearance.
    Carter left the band in August 1980 after the band's UK tour with Ted Nugent in order to join UFO and later Gary Moore. His replacement was guitarist John Lockton (ex-The Next Band, Red Alert) whose first appearance was on the band's Japanese tour in the autumn of 1980 followed by the release of the Stand Your Ground album in the spring of 1981.
    In June 1981, Robertson and Edwards both left Wild Horses in the wake of the band's Paris Theatre show in London. Robertson teamed up with Motörhead a year later and recorded Another Perfect Day in 1983, before moving on to join fellow Scotsman Frankie Miller on the Dancing in the Rain album in 1986. Edwards continued with a number of different acts, including Bernie Marsden's S.O.S., Grand Prix, and Lionheart.
    Bain assembled a new Wild Horses line-up featuring Lockton, former Lautrec stepfather and son team, Reuben (vocals) and Laurence Archer (guitar), and The Def Leppard E.P. credited drummer Frank Noon. The Archers and Noon left only months later and went on to form their own band, Stampede, and Wild Horses ceased to exist, with Bain joining his former Rainbow bandmate Ronnie James Dio in Dio, while Lockton became a member of German hard rockers Victory.
    Wild Horses members Laurence Archer and Clive Edwards were part of the UFO line-up that recorded the High Stakes & Dangerous Men and Lights Out in Tokyo albums in the early 1990s, before spending time in Medicine Head. They are both now founding members of X-UFO
    Both Wild Horses and Stand Your Ground were re-issued on CD in Japan and Europe in the 1990s; the latest set of re-issues came on 26 May 2009 through UK-based Krescendo Records. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Horses_(British_band)

    Awesome artifact here.

    For some reason the quote "They are both now founding members of X-UFO" gives me a smile...

    WILD HORSES 'S/T' CANDY168

    Reissued by Rock Candy Records.

    Order: https://www.rockcandyrecords.com/store#

    RAINBOW AND Thin Lizzy were two of the biggest names in rock during the 70s so when Rainbow dispensed with the services of bassist Jimmy Bain and Thin Lizzy dismissed guitarist Brian Robertson it was almost inevitable that the two would join forces to create a new powerhouse rock group. Indeed, with Bain and Robertson sharing a London flat together the musical combination was quickly cemented going under the forceful moniker of Wild Horses. Looking to solidify the line up they approached several potential drummers including, at first, former Faces and Who stalwart, Kenney Jones before settling for one time Pat Travers sticks man Clive Edwards. They also enlisted then unknown multi instrumentalist Neil Carter, later to join UFO and Gary Moore. Stepping into Konk Studios with South African born producer/artist Trevor Rabin it was this unit that cut the debut Wild Horse album for EMI, a record bristling with fresh promise. Renowned for their hair raising personalities Robertson and Bain delivered explosive guitar driven tracks big on hooks but smooth enough to appeal to radio. Amongst the material on offer were songs co-written by Robertson’s former Lizzy band mates Scott Gorham and Phil Lynott. Originally released in April 1980, the band’s debut album still sounds exciting and fresh, a testimony to the talent involved.

    24-bit remastering from original source tapes, eight bonus tracks, features Brian Robertson, Jimmy Bain and Neil Carter, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with Brian Robertson and enhanced artwork as all spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.

    TRACK LISTING: 1. RESERVATION 2. FACE DOWN 3. BLACKMAIL 4. FLYAWAY 5. DEALER 6. STREET GIRL 7. NO STRINGS ATTACHED 8. CRIMINAL TENDENCIES 9. NIGHTS ON THE TOWN 10. WOMAN BONUS TRACKS: 11.
