MR. BIG - Romeo (1977) DICKEN / BROKEN HOME [2]

  • Uploaded on 25 Feb 2012

    Not to be confused with the American band that came about years later, this Mr. Big are the real deal from the 70s. Probably most known for their massive hit in 1977 (featured here) called "Romeo" they were hard to define or pin down to one musical genre. Their music could be Pop one moment, Hard Rock the next and anything in between. Progressive Rock even! Signed to EMI around the same time as Queen and Cockney Rebel many fans feel they should have been just as big but sadly they lost out, particularly to the former. They toured as support to Queen, Sweet, Tom Petty, Journey, Kansas, The Runaways and were signed to the Arista label in the USA. Ian Hunter (of Mott the Hoople fame) produced their third album "Seppuka" but it was not released until years later. Dicken and bassist Pete Crowther went on to form another band named Broken Home, which released two albums in the early 80s (again highly recommended listening). This year, 2011 saw a new album release from Mr. Big called "Bitter Streets" featuring all new material and a bonus reworking of the big hit "Romeo".
