Leading off with the 1981 number six . hit single "Night Games," Line Up is a journeyman, early-'80s cross between hard rock and AOR. It's neither pop nor heavy metal, but somewhere in between. Though it may be far less metal than the group he'd just left (Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow), it was also far less catchy than, say, the post-Keith Moon-era Who.

Profile Line Up is the third studio album by hard rock singer Graham Bonnet originally released in 1981, reissued by Lemon Recordings in 2004. A mere year after Bonnet quit British rock powerhouse Rainbow, the singer was already marketing a promising single as a solo artist, the song being Night Games. On the charting strength of Night Games, Graham was contracted for a full length studio album, which was to be the sarcastically titled Line Up (since it is essentially a solo album).

The Day I Went Mad. Album -. 1999. Meanwhile, Back in the Garage.
