WHEN DID the roots of AOR (that's Adult Orientated Rock) actually take hold? Students and critics have spent many a conversation pouring over this conundrum but the general consensus of opinion tends to agree on two years, two bands and two songs. The year was 1978 and 1979, the bands were Toto and Jefferson Starship and the tracks, respectively, were 'Hold The Line' and 'Jane', both huge international hits that cast the mould for a future so bright that the formula was appropriated by a huge cast of characters well into the following decade. Jefferson Starship were, on the face of it, the least likely of all the established acts with roots in the 1960s San Francisco counter culture to suddenly reveal a new style and attain such unmitigated success. Of course matters were helped by a revised line-up, having recently lost mainstays Grace Slick and Marty Balin. With the appointment of drummer Aynsley Dunbar from Journey and new vocalist Mickey Thomas together with super hot guitarist Craig Chaquico, the band headed for new pastures and came up trumps hitting the AOR bulls-eye. 'Freedom At Point Zero', originally issued in 1979, took the band to new heights of accomplishment. Produced expertly by Ron Nevison (Heart, Survivor, UFO) the sound showcases a band with fire in their belly and a style that set fire to the American charts. And in the AOR pantheon 'Jane' remains an all time classic. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new interview, enhanced artwork and additional photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
