GTR ‎(Cass, Album, Unofficial).

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.

Title: GTR Artist: GTR Type: Studio Released: 1986 Recorded: Length: Label: Arista Producer: Geoff Downes. GTR is the first album by GTR, and was released in 1986.

And, GTR's lone eponymous album didn't deliver the fireworks that Howe and Hackett fans desired. Part of the problem is that the two guitarists crowd each other out; it rarely sounds like they're trading licks, but rather like they're stepping forward for solos at their pre-scheduled times. Despite the largely cool reaction of Hackett and Howe's dedicated fan base, GTR wound up being a respectable hit in America, thanks to the terrific leadoff track, "When the Heart Rules the Mind  . There are glimmers of what might have been - what GTR could have done if they dropped their crossover ambitions - but as it stands, GTR marks the point in time when both Howe and Hackett took one last stab at commercially oriented rock, before turning toward more ambitious solo projects.

GTR biography GTR was one of those 80�s "super groups"; band was formed around two very well know prog guitarists, Steve HACKETT (Genesis) and Steve HOWE (Yes, Asia), but GTR sound was completely different to the born bands of this two guitarists. GTR sound was oriented to FM radio, a commercial pop-rock of quality, but completely apart of prog sounds. GTR self title debut was published in may of 1986, and it sold more than 50. 00 copies!!! so went into gold album

GTR is the eponymous debut studio album of GTR and was released in 1986. The line up on the album is Steve Howe, Steve Hackett, Max Bacon, Phil Spalding and Jonathan Mover. GTR is the sole official studio album released by the short lived super group GTR which was founded in 1985. The group was founded by the ex-Genesis’ guitarist Steve Hackett and then ex-Yes’ and ex-Asia’s guitarist Steve Howe. The group lasted for two years and made only this studio album and the live album King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents GTR. The group was disbanded in 1987. GTR is far from a perfect album. In fact it’s one of those albums that have its very good points that are immediately nullified by some negative situations. Despite the intentions of Hackett and Howe to move in a more guitar orientated direction, hence the name GTR, this album seems to be more a hybrid album of bands such as Asia and Foreigner. One of the plausible reasons for this is the use of Geoff Downes as producer, whose work with both Yes and Asia did little to promote the guitar theme.
