Hello. Here is the debut album of the American band Torch Song. It is called "Wish Thing". Big name music man William Orbit was a member along with the very talented Laurie Mayer, (and apparently Rico Conning?)

I quite enjoyed this album. I also have their compilation "Exhibit A", in case anybody would like to hear it.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a good copy of their second album called "Ecstasy" and if anybody has it, I would love to hear it since I quite liked the bits of it I heard on the Exhibit A compilation.

Enjoy.

Still looking for the 2nd album you asked for, but in the meantime came across another Torch Song album from '95 called Toward the Unknown Region.
Wondering if you're at all familiar with that album, or if that would be one you'd also like to give a listen to?

I think that I might have Towards the Unknown Region on CD somewhere, since I vaguely remember buying it when it came out, but it's certainly not in my mp3 library and I'd have to look around to see if I still have it. I have no memory of how it sounded so it might be nice to hear again if I can't find it, and I'm sure somebody else might like to hear it as well.

Aw shoot. I found the album you Req'd, but for whatever reason can't seem to get it to upload right now.
I keep getting some error, and not sure what's going on there, but I'll keep trying to get it upped for you.
If need be I could probably send you multiple emails, with MP3 attachments, so let me know if you'd want
to try that :wink:

If you can't get it to upload I'd be willing to try e-mail.

Music is kind of weird, but I liked it, glad you req'd it, and hope you enjoy it too

Is it possible to share the Exhibit A album?

Hoping for these to be remastered and reissued at some point in the future!
