• This collection gathers three albums Graham Bonnet recorded across the 1990s; “Here Comes The Night” (1991), “Underground” (1997) and the self-explanatory, “The Day I Went Mad” (1999).

• This collection only covers a small part of the Graham Bonnet story, as few frontmen can claim to have had such a lengthy and far-reaching career, first finding fame as part of The Marbles duo, who enjoyed a hit with the Bee Gees’ ‘Only One Woman’ in 1968, followed by a solo career across the 1970s, again enjoying further success with the Bee Gees on the disco flavoured ‘Warm Ride’. Achieving what was possibly his greatest success in 1979 for “Down To Earth” in Rainbow, Worldwide hits followed with the singles ‘All Night Long’ and ‘Since You Been Gone’. Further solo success beckoned with the song ‘Night Games’ from the “Line-Up” album in 1981, before Graham briefly joined The Michael Schenker Group for 1982’s “Assault Attack”. Graham then formed Alcatrazz with a then little known Swedish guitarist called Yngwie J. Malmsteen, who would be replaced by another legendary axe slinger, Steve Vai, before the singer hooked up with Chris Impellitteri and the band Impellitteri, Graham has subsequently recorded with Forcefield, Japan’s Anthem, the Taz Taylor Band and Blackthorne with Bob Kulick in 1993.

• Kicking off with 1999’s “The Day I Went Mad”, Graham’s last solo album of the decade, and his sixth in total, has a whole host of special guests. Joining a band comprising Kevin Valentine on drums, Mario Parga on guitars and John Thomas on guitar and keyboards, are former Alcatrazz guitarist, Danny Johnson, Vivian Campbell of Dio, Whitesnake & Def Leppard, Bruce Kulick (KISS & Meat Loaf), plus Slash from Guns N’ Roses and Tim Bogert from Vanilla Fudge. This album has been expanded with a number of live curios from his 2000 tour, including The Beatles’ ‘I’m Down/Lucille’ and Rainbow’s ‘Since You Been Gone’, as well as ‘Spiked!’ and ‘Killer’ from “The Day I Went Mad” album.

• 1997’s “Underground” was Graham’s fifth solo record, and saw him reunited with guitarist Danny Johnson who had previously played together on Alcatrazz’s third and final LP, “Dangerous Games”. As well as a rocked-up cover of Jimi Hendrix’s ‘The Wind Cries Mary’, and ‘Lost In Hollywood’, a song that Graham had originally sung on Rainbow’s 1979 hit, “Down To Earth”, the album is now augmented by 7 songs recorded live at Culver City, 12th May 2000; Alcatrazz’s ‘Island In The Sun’, ‘God Blessed Video’ & ‘Will You Be Home Tonight’, Rainbow’s ‘All  Night Long’, MSG’s ‘Dancer’, plus ‘Only One Woman’ and ‘S.O.S.’.

• 1991’s “Here Comes The Night” saw Graham move far away from his more rock orientated path to take a more pop flavoured approach, including covers of Ray Davies ‘I Go To Sleep’, Denny Laine’s ‘Eyes Of A Child’, Leiber & Stoller’s ‘Don’t’ and James Brown’s ‘I’ll Go Crazy’. “Here Comes The Night” now includes four bonus instrumental demos; ‘Gone In A Minute’, ‘ A Hole In My Soul’, ‘Please Call Me’ and ‘Greenwich Meantime’.
