”Unfinished Business” is an apt title for the much anticipated collection of recordings from the iconic multi-platinum rock band Loverboy – 10 songs patiently waiting, some for decades, to be completed. The recordings range from “Come Undone,” written by Paul Dean while living in Toronto 40 years ago, long before he met vocalist Mike Reno and joined forces to form the soon-to-be legendary group, to the Chuck Berry-influenced “Doin’ It the Hard Way,” featuring Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve on bass. The song was penned by Dean during a brief stint replacing Randy Bachman in Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
Completing the recording took Dean to Raleigh NC, the current city of choice of drummer Matt Frenette, where they recorded the last 3 tracks in a friend’s home studio. “We practically lived at Little Mountain Studios for 6 months (referring to the “Lovin Every Minute” album sessions), but it’s a new world. I do everything on my laptop now. Way better!” enthuses Dean.
“These are tracks we’d recorded over the years, and we just decided to complete them and release the album to show our appreciation to the fans who have supported us all this time,” says Dean. It was released worldwide July 15 by Redeye Distribution on all major digital and brick-and-mortar retailers
