Frontline was one of the most active, hard working, all-original Bay Area/Northern California bands from 1982 to 1996. During these years they had written and recorded a large catalog of songs while developing a strong following throughout the area, becoming favorites at high profile clubs like New George's, The Sweetwater , Slim’s and Konocti. They also shared the stage with some of the very bands that had influenced them, playing concerts with Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Peter Frampton and Little Feat, just to name a few.

Frontline was unique in that they were fronted by not one, but two strong soulful lead vocalists. Their voices have a magical, harmonic blend and their songs showcase that quality, as they trade off lead vocals as well as harmonize together. This powerful brand of melodic, west coast pop/rock/AOR earned them a coveted spot in the huge 1986 Yamaha Soundcheck competition. They were hand picked from thousands of bands from all around California to perform with a select few in the Los Angeles finals in front of major record industry professionals such as Phil Spector, Quincy Jones, and Michael McDonald. The band shared the stage that night with Don Henley, Walter Becker and Bruce Hornsby. Ultimately, they came in at a very respectable second place!

In compiling this CD, Frontline worked diligently, searching through many master tapes of songs they had recorded throughout their long tenure together. Some were recorded at the legendary Record Plant in Sausalito while others at Tres Virgos in San Rafael! Only 5 songs on this retrospective disc were ever formally released. The rest have never seen the light of day... until now. Spanning 13 years, this long-awaited CD features all the gems that were unearthed while searching through Frontline's awesome catalog!

The time to discover Frontline is here! This superb, classy, and very talented west coast band played edgy intelligent pop/rock with a true skill for writing catchy, memorable hooks that will have you spinning this CD over and over again. You will soon discover that Frontline is one of the Bay Area’s best-kept secrets from the 80’s!!!
