GTR is the 1986 self-titled debut album and sole official studio release from the short-lived supergroup GTR. The album peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 chart, and the single "When the Heart Rules the Mind" reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Another single, "The Hunter", peaked at No. 85. The instrumental piece by Steve Howe, "Sketches in the Sun", resurfaced on his solo album Motif Volume 1 and again on his Anthology album.
Wiltern Theatre (Los Angeles, CA), 07/19/1986. By Paste Magazine January 16, 2009. GTR didn't stay together very long-only one year and one album with 1986's GTR. Nevertheless, the group managed to have a number 14 hit with "When the Heart Rules the Mind" and their album went gold. With its formation, GTR merged the talents of Steve Howe (guitarist for both Yes and Asia) and Steve Hackett (long time guitarist with Genesis). But unlike bands like Blind Faith and Asia-super groups whose members came out of a calculated pool of celebrity musicians-GTR was formed out of a mutual respect for each other and a desire to bring back the dual-guitar intensity made.
But each album was not quite "there". Unfortunately GTR never made more than 1 studio album. There are a lot of bootleg recordings - but only 1 studio :-(If you like GTR I can recomend the King Biscuit Flower Hour with GTR - a bit hard to find, but it's out there. Benjamin Blake Mitchner. Soldiers make the best friends. This song always makes me think of them and how much they do for us and how little praise they get for it. I wish we'd respect them more.
