Origin: Athens (Greece)

State of rock - 1987
- There was always some kind of confusion with the country of origin of DOUGLAS, a Greek band founded by the Douglas bros. Alex & Eliot circa 1983. That's because their debut "State Of Rock" (vinyl LP only) was, strangely, released in Australia in 1987.
To add even more haze, seems the album was recorded in Germany and the second press has a different artwork.
But aside the collector's data, the significant aspect of Douglas' "State Of Rock" is its quality: classic second mid-Eighties AOR-rock sound, sharp guitars, keyboards at glance and a strong rhythm section.
And yes, very good vocals too, since the singer credited as 'Cornelius' is the alias of AORsters Craaft's vocalist Klaus Lulley. Yes, it is Klaus (a subject of discussion in various forums / blogs). -
