Touch was borne from the band “American Tears”.  The Incarnation of Amercan Tears that recorded that band’s third CD for COLUMBIA RECORDS, left that label, re-worked their sound and hooked up with Deep Purple and Rainbow Manager, Bruce Payne.
TOUCH Recorded two CD’s for Atlantic Records, the second unreleased until recently released by the European Label FRONTIERS, and the Japanese Label Marquee/Avalon

(limited supply)

The “COMPLETE WORKS OF TOUCH” available here, includes both CD’s and also some other recordings created by the band which have  never before been released (including an interesting version of “I Found Someone”, eventually recorded by Cher).  It also includes the “live” version of “Don’t You Know What Love Is” performed at the Donnington Monsters of Rock Festival.

Known for, among other things, being the first band to take the stage at DONNINGTON MONSTERS OF ROCK FESTIVAL, Touch had such memorable songs as “Don’t You Know What Love Is” and “When The Spirit Moves You” , both of which were “Top 40″ in the U.S.   Given huge harmonies (created by Craig, Doug and Mark who were each “lead” singers in their own rights), and great musicianship, TOUCH stressed melodic metal songs with anthemic choruses, and progressive songs which showed off the musicianship of the band.
