1. FROM THE JUNGLE TO THE NEW HORIZONS
It’s 1982 and I am feeling great!! Last year “Screaming Jets” reached No.9 in the Australian Top Ten and is my first official hit!!
Whilst the album “Walking Into Mirrors” notches up Worldwide sales totalling 100,000 with the single selling 76,000 in Australia alone. The album reaches Top 20 in most of the European Territories, which is really inspirational to me and drives me on to be even more determined. A small tour of Holland follows with an appearance at the New Pop Festival in Rotterdam. I was second on the bill with “Ian Hunter” topping the show, and I remember “The Comsat Angels” going on just before us.
So spoke JOHNNY WARMAN who after achieving such success in 1980 with “Walking Into Mirrors (SJPCD127). Fast forward to 1982 and the world was Johnny’s oyster newly signed to ELTON JOHN’s ROCKET RECORDS, accompanying vocals from KIKI DEE “From The Jungle To The New Horizon” was released to great critical acclaim.
Now released for the first time ever on CD with no less than 8 bonus tracks.
JOHNNY WARMAN, JERRY MAROTTA, TONY LEVIN, ANDY CLARKE, CHRIS PAYNE, KIKI DEE, JEFF RICH, PETE SOLLEY
Originally released in 1985...Stage theatricals were part of his performance and some of the songs could be likened to David Bowie too...7 bonus tracks with informative sleeve notes by Johnny Warman
Alistair Flynn, Classic Rock Society (August 2004)
...for those who enjoy this style of music the original album length has been expanded from nine to seventeen, and there are copious and extremely interesting sleeve notes written by Johnny himself.
Feedback (September 2004)
...exists within a distinctly Gabriel-esque world of shifting percussion, uncanny synths, and bizarre vocal effects...Eight bonus tracks have been appended to the original album...All are solidly excellent...a unique and brilliantly individual artist who really, truly, should never have spent the last 20 years in such obscurity.
