Graham Bonnet is considered one of the finest Rock vocalists of his generation. Beginning his career in the sixties Graham was one half of the pop dupo The Marbles who scored a worldwide hit single with the Bee Gees written song Only One Woman. Following on from the Marbles Graham embarked on a solo career in the seventies and was one of the first signings to former Beatle Ringo Starr's record label Ringo records. Following one self titled album Graham was approached to replace Ronnie James Dio in Rainbow. Graham featured on the album Down To Earth and also the hit singles Since You've Been Gone and All Night Long
before he left Rainbow in late 1980 following Rainbow's
performance at the first Monsters of Rock festival at
Graham then recorded his third solo album Line Up which
featured many guest artists such as Cozy Powell and Micky
Moody. The album also spawned the hit single Night Games
which became a staple of Rock radio stations worldwide.
Following the release of Line Up Graham then joined the
Michael Schenker Group recording just one album entitled
Assault Attack and the hit single Dancer.
Graham then formed his own American based rock band
Alcatrazz with whom he would record three studio albums and
a live album. Graham left Alcatrazz in 1987 when the band
folded and he picked up his solo career once more which has
continued to this day.
Underground was Graham Bonnet's fifth solo album and
originally released in South Korea in 1996 and in Japan in 1997.
The album was subsequently released worldwide but has been
unavailable for some time making this reissue a welcome
return to the market. The album features Danny Johnson on
guitar who had previsously worked with Graham Bonnet in
Alcatrazz. The album also features performances from Kevin
Valentine, Tony Franklin and Todd Jensen. In addition to the
title track the album contains a cover of the Jimi Hendrix song
The Wind Cries Mary and also a re working of the Rainbow
song Lost In Hollywood.
