Dynasty: My Al Corley CD collection

As you probably know, I'm a huge fan och eighties soap opera "Dynasty", where the cute Al Corley played gay character Stephen Carrington. But Al wasn't just an actor, he was also a singer. This is my CD collection of Al's music: "Square Rooms" (1984), "Riot Of Color" (1986), "The Big Picture" (1988) and the remix single "Land Of The Giants" (1988).

My favourite songs of his are the italo disco sounding "Square Rooms", "Give It Up" and "Cold Dresses".
