Title: Jon Butcher Axis

Digitally remastered edition of this 1983 release. For a time in the early 1980's it looked like as if Jon Butcher's career would know no bounds. As anyone who picked up a copy of the self-titled Jon Butcher Axis album upon it's original release in 1983 would concur, here was a star on the rise. Such an upwards trajectory was well deserved given his undeniable talent. This album reached #91 in the Billboard pop album charts and Axis' video "Life Takes a Life" became one of the first videos by a black artist to receive airtime on MTV. At that time, the only two black artists enjoying MTV coverage were The Jon Butcher Axis and Michael Jackson. The result of his success afforded further growing popularity for the band, which added the opportunity to tour with Rush (Signals tour '83), Def Leppard (Pyromania tour '83) and Scorpions (Hurricane tour '84). amongst others. Jon Butcher has an undeniable talent and this 10 track album from the classic early eighties era shows just what this man had to offer. Timeless.
