Anno Domini 1989 – 1995

This is it!  The moment we’ve been waiting for since 2009.  The famed Tony Martin box set has been announced.  Entitled “Anno Domini 1989 – 1995”, it encompasses the studio output of the Tony Martin I.R.S. era.  Eternal Idol is not in this set, as it’s on another label (Warner/Rhino in US, Vertigo elsewhere).  A […]

Movement with Tony Martin?
