Bio:

Touch was a rock band from New York City formed in 1978. Mark Mangold (songwriter and keyboards), Glen Kithcart (drums), and Craig Brooks (guitars) had all previously been in the band American Tears (releasing three albums on Columbia Records). The lineup was completed by bassist Doug Howard.Their single, "Don't You Know What Love Is" only reached #69 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, the song was played heavily on AOR radio stations in the USA at the end of the 1970s, and did well on a specialist Melody Maker chart in Great Britain. The band released one eponymous album in 1980, and a second unreleased album was recorded in 1982.Touch was the first band to play at the inaugural Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington racetrack in 1980. A live version of "Don't You Know What Love Is" appeared on the compilation LP Monsters of Rock, documenting performances at the festival.Mark Mangold has continued to write and record with and for other artists, with one of his earliest collaborators being a then-relatively unknown musician named Michael Bolton. This working relationship began when Mangold co-wrote and performed on Bolton's first solo hit, "Fool's Game," which was featured on the latter artist's self-titled 1983 solo album. The song "I Found Someone," another collaboration with Bolton, was initially recorded by Laura Branigan, though it ultimately became a top 10 hit for Cher.Craig Brooks joined Mangold in the studio for Michael Bolton's solo album. In addition to being a fellow co-writer on "Fool's Game," Brooks performed guitar and backing vocals on the album. The following year, he sang on Roger Glover's solo album, Mask.Doug Howard has also continued to perform, record and write with acts and artists such as Todd Rundgren, Edgar Winter, Stun Leer, and Roy Buchanan as well as a member of Rundgren's Utopia (Howard is co-writer of the Utopia hit "Feet Don't Fail Me Now" and managing partner of Lodestar Entertainment.In 2014, Mangold resurrected the Touch name, assembling a lineup featuring Swedish singer Göran Edman on lead vocals along with other Swedish musicians. This lineup performed live at Firefest in Nottingham, UK in October 2014.

Album:

Rightfully considered one the pompy AOR / Melodic Rock genre's pillars, the first, self-titled album from TOUCH has been remastered by Rock Candy specialists resulting into a superbly sounding CD including 2 rare cuts as bonus tracks.During the late Seventies and early Eighties the American rock scene was bursting with deliciously ambitious talent, none more so than New York based quintet Touch.Led by a veteran of the scene Mark Mangold (ex- American Tears and later in Drive She Said), the band locked into a style of Melodic (hard) Rock / AOR music that would eventually father multi-platinum artists such as Survivor, Journey and Foreigner in years to come.Focusing on supremely crafted songs with huge hooks, luscious vocals, stabbing keyboards, razor sharp guitars and impressive arrangements, their debut self-titled album immediately struck a chord with fans and critics alike.With such rich talent on display it was hardly surprising to find that the band were courted by some of the biggest power brokers in the industry including Deep Purple manager Bruce Payne, and Atlantic Records sister label Atco, with whom the band eventually signed in 1980.Produced by renowned English producer Tim Friese Greene, the 'Touch' album caused a sensation amongst fans of the genre being hailed as instant classic and a record that would go on to become a master class in AOR technology.The album shoot Touch to secure a slot at the inaugural UK Mosters Of Rock Festival held at Donington Park, going down in history as the first ever band to perform at this legendary event. One of the bonus tracks was recorded there precisely.Sadly, unlike many contemporaries, Touch never received the commercial acclaim that their music undoubtedly deserved. Despite this, however, the Touch legacy continues to endure and impress with each passing day as one of the seminal rockin' AOR bands of the genre, and now this album owns a cult classic status.With an excellent remastering job (truly brilliant) by Rock Candy and two bonus tracks, "Touch" is a must have for any AOR / Melodic Rock fan, never sounding outdated, on the contrary, all this material still stands vital and fresh.This is where all started for the genre...
