Dragon - Dreams Of Ordinary Men


Dragon were one of my favourite bands.

I had the pleasure of meeting Marc Hunter socially many times over the years.
I can still remember something he said back then... "when you call me at home, just ask for Fat Boy".

They were one of the most dynamic live Australian bands I ever had the good fortune to see perform on a regular basis.

This is their 1986 release Dreams Of Ordinary Men.

Once again, this is another deleted Australian title.

Dreams Of Ordinary Men was produced by the legendary Todd Rundgren, who also produced Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell album.

The band at the time of this album was :-

Marc Hunter - Vocals
Todd Hunter - Bass / Vocals / Fairlight CMI Bass
Alan Mansfield / Keyboards
Doane Perry - Drums

Additional musicians were :-

Tommy Emmanuel - Guitars
Todd Rundgren - Guitars / Backing Vocals
Lenny Pickett - Sax
Gary Window - Sax


Tracks on Dreams Of Ordinary Men were :-

Dreams Of Ordinary Men
Speak No Evil
Nothing To Lose
Western Girls
Intensive Care
Temptation
Midnight Sun
Love Don't Stop
Forever And Ever
Smoke
Start It Up
When I'm Gone

  5. hi there!

    Stumbled upon this. thanks for keeping Dragon alive. i am a singer from Canada and recently recorded an album with "Sunshine" on it. I adore the band. Another lost classic - "Big City Talk" by Mark Hunter...
    Keep up the great work.
