WANTED

Laurence Archer - LA (1986)

Laurence Archer – LA (1986)

Laurence Archer is one helluva guitar player that played in the NWOBHM band Stampede, joined Grand Slamm (featuring Phil Lynott) and moved on to UFO in 1992 for HIGH STAKES AND DANGEROUS MEN. This album is Archer’s only solo record, a Japan exclusive. I have never heard a song from the album but I want it! Why? I’ve been tracking this album for the last 10 years and I have seen it go for over $1500 on Ebay, I want to hear the hype! I have featured this album many times in my Ebay Madness column and it always seems to fetch a high price in the hundreds.

I have wanted this CD for years and I almost had one in my grubby little hands! Just before my computer’s died two weeks ago, I received an email from a CD collector in the U.S. that had just discovered this website. This guy read the Ebay Madness features and emailed me to see if I would be interested in an original copy for a reasonable price. Money is tight but I had permission from the wife to buy it if it was reasonable, it would be my Xmas gift! Then the computer died and all my saved email was lost in the abyss! So close yet so far!

    Trust me. All the hype is really not worth it. I have it on cdr. Don;t waste ya time. 10 or 20 if your real interested as a collector. It is out on the p2p scene if you know where to look. Very pop aor.

  2. Stampede (formed by Laurence and Reuben Archer in 1981 after they left Jimmy Bain’s Wild Horses line-up) are reforming this year – they have a date booked for 19th September at The Robin 2 in Bilston, Wolverhampton!

    The line-up will consist of original members Laurence and Reuben Archer, Colin Bond (bass) and Clive Edwards (Pat Travers/Wild Horses) will replace Eddie Parsons on drums.

    Exciting stuff!

    P.S I have L.A knocking around somewhere its a great album!
