Wilding-Bonus - 1978 [1993] "Pleasure Signals"


Wilding-Bonus was short lived jazz fusion project, founded by Danny Wilding (guitar) and Pete Bonus (flute). Other band's musicians all were well-known on progressive scene : Phil Collins (drums), John Goodsall (guitars, bass), Robin Lumley(keyboards) were Brand-X members, whenever  Bayeté (keyb.) played in Automatic Man, Michael Shrieve (dr.) - with Santana in Woodstock, percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah was member of Traffic and Can both.

This fusion is one of those fantastic albums that exist here and there in the music industry. Danny Wilding (guitar) and Pete Bonus (flute) came out of nowhere, made this one LP, and then dissapeared again. There are some top class musicians here, each one with his contribution in developing the sound of this album.

Band recorded just one album in Island Studios, London in 1978, and then disappeared. Album was released on LP by Visa Records in USA ( picture-disc version existed as well), and for a first time re-released on CD in 1993 ( by Ozone Records, US). Very rare and almost forgotten release.
