Album Notes

Highway Chile originally operated between 1980 and 1985. They released several popular albums such as Storybook Heroes (1983) and Fever (1984). In those years they toured intensively and shared the stage with big international acts like Motörhead, Whitesnake, Michael Schenker, Accept and Y&T. One of Highway Chile’s closest fans was famous DJ Alfred Lagarde (†), who eventually also produced the Storybook Heroes album. With Picture, Helloïse, Bodine, Vengeance and Vandenberg, Highway Chile were at the top of the Dutch heavy rock scene in the eighties.
In 1984 the original Highway Chile line-up fell apart. Some members continued on as Highway Chile, while Ernst van Ee and Ben Blaauw formed Helloïse. Highway Chile held on for one more year with some new members. Helloïse became even more famous but finally also split in 1989.


In 2002 the reformed band toured all over Holland again and made a live recording which was released on CD with the appropriate title “On The Road Again”. It features the voice of Robert Soeterboek and the guitar sound of Attila Szabo (both were replaced in 2003). The reactions following this tour were so overwhelmingly positive that the band decided to go on and work on new songs. With new guitarist Gert Nijboer and vocalist Stan Verbraak (well known from Helloïse) they selected the Excess studios for the creation of their new album entitled:”Keeper Of The Earth”.
In 2008 Marchell Remeeus (also ex-Helloïse) replaced Edwin den Haag to become their new bassplayer.

As Alfred Lagarde used to say: “Rock and Roll is better than music…..” And these guys rock!
