Dangerous is a covers album by the British guitarist Andy Taylor, released by A&M Records in August 1990.

About the album[]

This is Andy Taylor's follow-up to his earlier Thunder album.

Dangerous wasn't widely promoted and had only limited success. Taylor's popularity had dwindled since leaving Duran Duran in 1986 and this album struggled with sales because of it. However, two singles were lifted from the album: "Stone Cold Sober" and "Lola", with "Lola" making UK no.60. Both singles were accompanied with all black and white videos.

The album's release was followed by a 12 date UK Dangerous Tour, in November 1990.

Taylor commented on the history behind the album in and interview with MelodicRock: "It sort of one of those happy accidents. Somebody…a very well known band had this idea to do that and they wanted me to produce the album for them, doing this selection of their favourite covers. At the very last minute they pulled out. And I said to the label - A&M - I could do that. The guys that managed me at the time went into overdrive - 'you can do that as well, because you know how much money they are going to pay you to do it?!' I thought, great, this is something everyone wants to do - an album of their favourite covers. The reason things are so raw, was that within 3 days we were in the studio recording this thing and it was done in that sort of 'ok, let's rehearse them and beat the s##t out of them and play them and move on and just play them as you would do if you were in high school playing a bunch of covers!'It was done in that very short space of time and raw, upfront way. We had a blast doing it!"
