High Roller Records, black vinyl, ltd 250, 5mm spine cover, poster, A5 card, 425gsm heavy cardboard cover, When the late great Rhett Forrester left New York’s Riot after their well received 1983 »Born In America« album, it did not take too long for him to start a solo career, resulting in two studio album: »Gone With The Wind« issued in 1984 and »Even The Score« (1988). On January 22nd 1994, the legendary singer was shot and killed in Atlanta, Georgia, at the age of 37. The »Sessions« compilation brings together a number of different projects that Rhett Forrester was involved with across his all too brief but nevertheless impressive career. For the most part these recordings have fallen into relative obscurity compared to the more well known Rhett Forrester releases, be it with the legendary Riot, Jack Starr's first solo record »Out Of The Darkness« or Rhett's own solo output. First up are the »Dirty Water Sessions«, which were first heard on the long out of print compilation album »Hell Or Highwater«, recorded in Texas with guitarist/co-writer Jonathan Grell …formerly of the band Winterkat. These songs represent the very last recordings Rhett made before his untimely death. Next up is the “Dogbone” project, a tentative band Rhett formed with then former Keel members Brian Jay and Dwain Miller. These recordings got a limited semi-official release in the mid 1990s, but have largely been unheard until now. In addition »Sessions« includes the sole track from the “Thrasher" project album featuring Rhett. Masterminded by Andrew Duck McDonald and Carl Canedy this track also featured on the »Hell Or Highwater« compilation. Closing out this release are the demos for Dr. Dirty, known as »The Clear Lake Sessions«. These recordings formed the basis of what became the full Dr. Dirty recordings featured on the High Roller Records release »Rhett Forrester - The Canadian Years«.
