80s Starrider cover - instrumental with flute?
« on: May 04, 2014, 07:34:54 am »
Greetings, everyone. I'm looking for some help identifying the album and artist for a song recorded sometime in the early 80s from a Boston-area radio station, probably WBCN.  I'm asking here because I think the song is at least in part a cover of Foreigner's Starrider from their 1977 debut album, though it's instrumental with no vocals.

The track is here:

The track doesn't start off sounding anything like Starrider, but if you skip forward to about 3:10, the similarity is unmistakable.

Compare 3:10 at the above track to around 1:10 on the actual Starrider here:

So, for you Foreigner experts out there, can anyone point me to the band or album for this cover track?  It doesn't sound like any other band I've ever heard.
