    Hot Boy - Barely Legal

    I told my entire story regarding this release WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY back in the day on this site. These guys are from my neck of the woods and I purchased my first copy of the CD from a place called LOCALS ONLY back in the very early 1990's. Long story short, the "band" was really only the lead singer with some local hired guns to fill-out the roster, but that EP is one of my favorite BIG 80'S releases as well. I wish all indies lived up to the hype that this one does. I actually purchased about 6 or 7 sealed cassette tapes of Barely Legal when another local record store went out of business a while ago (For What It's Worth Records & Tapes). Dude brought out some deadstock stock that literally hadn't seen the light of day since the 1980's before he went OOB. In addition to the Hot Boy tapes, I got a bunch of LP's (including Bon Jovi - New Jersey) that still had the original price tags on them with dates. I should have bought WAY more stuff. True original releases. I "may" have one extra original CD of Barely Legal I'd be willing to trade. I'll take a look this weekend. SIDE NOTE... The place that YOUNG WILD & FREE video was shot was called STARRY NIGHT back in the day. It's now called ROSELAND. I cannot begin to tell you how many bands I've seen there over the years... Black N Blue, Satriani, Dan Reed Network, Whitesnake... the list is WAY too long. Heck, I bullshitted with Gene Simmons in that place once. My only regret regarding that place, passing on free tickets to see Motley Crue in November of 1983. I'd just seen them in San Diego with Def Leppard a couple months earlier and I didn't think they were going to be all that big or all that special. **** ME!

    Klassik '78 - side 1 & side 2

    I actually like these tracks better than just about anything else uploaded on this site the past month or so (save for the Gioelli / Castronovo stuff). Yes, I was a huge KISS fan in 1978 as a 4th. grader. Can someone please help me find a copy of the UNORIGINALS CD? Thank you.

    Treat - Tunguska

    If you weren't already a fan of Treat, that song isn't going to sway you.

    Listening to WILD IS THE NIGHT this very moment. Very 1989'esque. Kinda sounds like ST Skid Row meets Pretty Boy Floyd LBWET.

    Enuff Z'Nuff - Diamond Boy

    Chip is great live... I'm mean he still walks the walk and talks the talk on stage as though it were 1989 all over again (I haven't heard so much mention of cocaine since the 80's), but the band we all knew and loved from back then is pretty much a ghost as this point.

    Tempt - s/t

    Paying homage to a couple legends... I love it. Good dudes, these guys... I purchased UNDER MY SKIN from their website a few years back and they couldn't have been more thankful and respectful.

    New Dee Snider song

    For what it's worth, I really liked Twisted Sister in 1984 when STAY HUNGRY was released... but probably more for their videos and theatrics than anything else. Let's face it, Steely Dan they are not. Saw them live in 1984 with Iron Maiden... fun show.

    Treat - Tunguska

    Coup de Grace is most likely my favorite (complete) album to be released dating back to about 1992 or so... and I'm pretty damn picky. I don't think any new release can match that effort, but I'm certainly hoping for something along those lines.

    Hearts On Fire - Call Of Destiny

    Love me some Rocky IV Hearts on Fire Strong Desire Rages Deep Within

    Ted Poley - Modern Art

    Cover art looks like something for a Bob Marley album.

    Ted Poley - Modern Art

    Don't care for the latest sample, either. This is certainly not D2-era Ted. Of course I was turned off from the jump with the album title. Y'all know "modern" is not a word I've ever been in love with.
  12. I lived AFD first-hand as I was attending college in San Diego the late summer / early fall of 1987 when the album was really taking off. At the time I was 19 and not a huge fan. It was a bit too raw and raunchy for my ears then... HYSTERIA; SLIPPERY WHEN WET; GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS; PERMANENT VACATION and WHITESNAKE were still in constant rotation in my cassette decks (car and boombox). Didn't take long for me to become a fan, however. Living in SoCal at the time it was hard to escape these guys or that album... they were EVERYWHERE. I still have fond memories of APPETITE and never turn the dial when any of the singles are on the radio, but I don't appreciate it enough to spend that kind of money on any reissue. I have the original cassette tape, CD and Japanese vinyl. I'm all set.

    Imperium - Beyond The Stars

    Nothing here approaches anything from "The Greatest Wonder." I doubt excellence of that caliber can be achieved again.

    Ted Poley - Modern Art

    Love me some Ted... Not hip to these particular tracks. I look forward to the follow-up to "Beyond The Fade" which was quite excellent.
  15. In case you didn't already know, THIS is my type of tune. Vintage melodic rock. Great harmonized vocals, guitars that actually use B and High-E strings, and an old-school vibe that's right up my alley. Yep, I'll take one, please!
