Bricklin will be best known to AOR fans for their massive cult anthem 'Walk Away' and their much-loved debut album 'Bricklin', but there has always been so much more to the band. From Schoolboys to Bricklin to Martin's Dam, the core has always been brothers Brian and Scott Bricklin and together with MelodicRock Classics, the guys are finally putting all their recorded work together in the one place for the first time with an absolute plethora of additional demos and unreleased songs.

Bricklin Anthology The Complete Story (1979-1999) gathers the Bricklin debut and both Martin's Dam albums along with the best of their song recordings over the years, the majority of being previously unreleased until now. We also get a dive back into the start of the brothers work in their first band Schoolboys. This 8CD Deluxe Box Set leaves no stone unturned in showcasing the guys' unique writing style.

About Bricklin:
Brothers Brian and Scott Bricklin first started writing and performing together in the late 70s. Their first collaboration came under the moniker Schoolboys. They virtually still were. From 1979 to 1982, the band saw the brothers already developing their power pop sound. In 1982 they changed lineups and band name, brining the Bricklin name to life.
From 1982-1989 Bricklin did their best to take over the melodic rock world. Signed to A&M Records, the band released one album, which featured the hit single 'Walk Away', a treasured AOR classic that appeared in the movie and soundtrack for Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Numerous recordings followed the acclaimed debut, but sadly none of those songs were officially released.

Sensing the need for change, in 1990 the band became Martin's Dam. For the next decade, the guys wrote and recorded music, culminating in two studio albums being released.
The debut The Healing was released in 1994 and re-released in 1995 and the sophomore record Sky Above saw them signed to Hybrid/Sire Records. The acoustic driven power pop records again found numerous fans, but worldwide domination would elude the talented writers.

Since that time both have continued writing, performing and working in the industry. Scott as a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, session musician, sound engineer, producer and teacher.
Brian as a producer and engineer, mixing and mastering for over 200 bands, label recording artists, singer-songwriters.

The guys are so excited for this period of their professional lives to be showcased in this deluxe box set, spanning the years 1979 1999.
