Hot Boy - Barely Legal

Recommended Posts

I am so disappointed that I don't visited this board a few years back. I would have bought the Hot Boy disc right on the spot. Especially for that price. For 40 bucks or something. Missed opportunity! :(

So would somebody sell it to me for 40 bucks? :whistle:

I can sell you mine for 400 bucks. That's what you meant, right? That was just a typo?

It's cheating because it's only an EP, but this is in my top six recordings of all time. I guess the other way I could put it is that it is the best EP in history, in my honest opinion.

Wow, you are so kind. Did you ever get a copy?

I only ever managed to download a naughty copy once. And while I would never say it was the most amazing album/EP ever, there were some fun songs on it and would have liked to have picked up a copy if it was reasonably priced.

Gotta be a reissue someday hopefully.

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!

Thanks, Del.  I try not to ramble-on terribly often, but don't mind when I think have at least a small piece of pertinent information that someone might deem interesting.

Sorry for the late reply - been in the tropics on holiday - but no, sadly I never found a copy of this one. :(

    • Appears to be running fine now. I had to submit another support ticket for them to re-apply the fix that they had done before I upgraded... sheesh.
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Crazy Lixx Announce New Album, "Forever Wild", To Be Released May 17, 2019 Swedish hard rockers Crazy Lixx are back with another gem of an album that harkens back to the best of ‘80s hard rock, while also keeping a foot firmly planted in the 21st century. “Forever Wild” further cements the band's status as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led hard rock revival, cleverly melding a sleaze/hair metal approach (reminiscent of Motley Crue, Warrant, and Winger) with voracious hooks and melodies. With huge choruses, instantly memorable riffs, wailing, emotive guitar solos, and massive production by Danny Rexon and Chris Laney, "Forever Wild" is sure to resonate with old fans and new listeners alike. Singer Danny Rexon says, "Ruff Justice was the first album where I took on the full role of producer, including recording, engineering, editing and some of the mixing. Naturally, there were things that I learnt along the way and, in retrospect, things that could have been done better. On the new album, I was once again the producer, but this time I brought in a whole lot more experience with me and had a clearer picture of what needed to be done to get a GREAT sounding album. So, you could definitely say that the new album is a natural progression from 'Ruff Justice'. It’s actually the first time in the history of the band where the same band members have recorded under roughly the same conditions, in the same studios, with more or less the same equipment and with the same producer. For the first time, you can hear continuity from one album to the next, so I’d say if you’re a fan of 'Ruff Justice', I bet you’ll enjoy this new album the same, if not even more!" The band explores a wider range of styles than ever before on “Forever Wild”. From the hard rocking and anthemic opening track “Wicked” to the AOR inspired upcoming single “Silent Thunder,” to songs like "Eagle", that sounds like it came off a Bon Jovi album circa 1986, Crazy Lixx manage to blend a love and reverence for ‘80s hard rock with their own unique stamp on each track. Rexon continues, "I think the way the album turned out has a lot to do with the current line-up that we established in 2016. I’ve always been a fan of melodic hard rock and hair metal, but with previous members, we’ve been pulling a bit more in different directions at times, so the result hasn’t always gone towards the goal I’d like them too, certainly not as much as it has on this album. I can honestly say that the way Crazy Lixx sounds today is a lot closer to how I envisioned the band to sound in the early 2010’s (around the time of 'New Religion') than how we actually sounded 5-6 years ago."  With “Forever Wild", Crazy Lixx have set the bar very high against their own revered and celebrated catalog. Their best album yet? We’d say so! Don’t miss Crazy Lixx while they’re on the road in support of the album either, as their live shows are a sight to behold! Danny concludes, “On release day (May 17th), we have an album release show in our hometown of Malmö, along with fellow Frontiers band Creye. I’d recommend this event for all the fans that want to see some new songs live for the first time and get a chance to hang out with the band, get the new album signed, and all that fun stuff. After that, we’re lining up a bunch of summer festivals to kick off touring. I think there is a definite summer vibe to this album and the new songs will really fit well on an outdoor summer festival. Really looking forward to this summer’s shows.”    Tracklist: 1. Wicked 2. Break Out 3. Silent Thunder 4. (She's Wearing) Yesterday's Face 5. Eagle 6. Terminal Velocity 7. It's You 8. Love Don't Live Here Anymore 9. Weekend Lover 10. Never Die (Forever Wild) Line-up: Danny Rexon – vocals  Joél Cirera - drums  Jens Anderson – bass guitar  Chrisse Olsson - guitar  Jens Lundgren - guitar    
    • This is actually an EP (first one of three), not a full-length album. Released March 15th. Samples: amazon.com Tracks: 1. Carousel 2. Taking Me Home 3. Let the Sunshine In 4. Dancing in the Moonlight 5. Love of Mine
    • It's definitely destined to be a top 3-5 finisher, at least.
    • Sounding great,this could well be my chart topper album for 2019 but so much competition still to be unleashed this year...but a great track as usual from these guys.
    • It's all part of Frontiers' new ham-fisted approach to PR
    • Excellent, as usual. Very consistent band.
