Backstreet Symphony

Album: Backstreet Symphony (1990)
Charted: 25
  • "Backstreet Symphony" is the title track of the band's debut album; it was also the first song they played at their final concert, at the Civic Hall, Wolverhampton, in July 2009.
  • Written by lead guitarist Luke Morley, the original runs to 4 minutes 31 seconds. Although this is a passable recording, and loud, as one would expect from a heavy metal band, the rare August 1992 impromptu acoustic recording live on The Friday Rock Show from Castle Donington is more thematic. >>
