We continue our Unreleased Classic Rock Photos series with a really good one featuring the band New England. Our sixth volume in the series presents some of Mike Hill’s best work featuring one of his favorite bands. New England is also one of our favorites. We had the pleasure of interviewing founding member Hirsh Gardner recently when ClassicRockHistory.com’s great writer Andrew Daly interviewed Hirsh. Now we get the pleasure of presenting a large group of never before seen photographs of the band courtesy of Mike Hill.
The band New England was first formed in the late 1970s. The band’s debut album entitled New England was released in 1979. The album was produced by Paul Stanley of KISS. The album featured group members John Fannon on guitars and lead vocals, Jimmy Waldo on keyboards and backing vocals, Hirsh Gardner on drums and backing vocals, and Gary Shea playing bass. The album spawned the hit single “Don’t Ever Wanna Lose Ya.”
After New England released their debut album in 1979, the group released their follow-up record called Explorer Suite in 1980. Their third and final studio album which was produced by Todd Rundgren was released in 1981 called Walking Wild.
