1, 2 KO combinations - "Damn Yankees"

They delivered a 1, 2 KO, then retired undefeated. The stars aligned with this band, literally. 

I hate to use the very over used phrase, "Super Group", but these guys definitely qualify. 

"High Enough" was quite a decent hit down here at the time.

A great feelgood album. Is there such a thing as "Melodic Hard Country"? 

All members are still alive I believe. Imagine a third album reunion!

I think Andrew had stated a third album was made but was total garbage. And it remains unreleased for that reason.

Yeah, I remember him saying that as well. Apparently it's sitting on a shelf somewhere.

2 solid albums. Got me in the mood to dust them off and listen again over the weekend.

This is my favourite -

The first album is brilliant.  The second one starts off hot but drifts in the second half, IMO.  Still really good though.  It's a shame we never got a quality 3rd album.

I favor their first album but like them both. I saw them in play in Tokyo and it was an awesome show. Uncle Ted fired an arrow into his guitar. I was amazed that he was able to get the bow and arrow though customs. They wouldn’t let him light the arrow up though. They keep talking about doing a third album but with a the different stuff they are doing, it’s hard for them to get together. Damn shame because this was one super group that had it going on.

Had these albums for an age and probably spun them a million times each, without ever really loving either. I loved 'High enough' and enjoyed how they covered it with different lyrics on the follow-up and called it 'Where you going now?' Two great songs, as is 'Silence is broken.' Apart from them, some of it was good ol' fashioned barnyard stompin' fun, but not really my jam if I'm being honest. I think 'Coming of age' flirted with my best of tapes, but far as I recall it was mostly just the aforementioned three that ever made the mix tapes.

The debut contains some v good songs like Runaway, Higher, Come Again, Tell me but there are a few fillers.

The follow up was v disappointing imo. Pretty average affair with no real keepers imo and the one decent song was a rip off of their own track as Geoff mentioned

    • An absolute must have album, KILLER!!! stuff...  
    • This whole transgender sport thing is a joke IMO....I mean who really cares who or what is competing in the Olympics these days, most of them are on performance drugs of one kind or another anyway....half the women look like men and some of the men look like women depending on which sport they are competing in....I just don't give a fuck anymore....I watch NHL, MLB and NFL....they can put women or transgender in any of those leagues and I'll have a good laugh....
    • Firstly, thank you for those kind words. I was moved.  Secondly, yeah, the whole transgender sport issue is a disgrace. I honestly can't understand how it's allowed.  Joe Rogan's been calling this shit out from day one.        
    • just feeling very emotional right now, and wanted to let all my HH brothers know how I feel, without being offensive or getting cancelled,  I just wanted to tell you guys that your all Fags and if you were any bigger pillow biters, you'd have to have your wrists permanently set in the limp position, especially you G-Off, I noticed since you met that new guy you dont even come on here anymore, must be getting to much weenie, anyways, your all homos, and queers, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out your all chicks with dicks, especially the wops and nips, but I think your all Crackers so I dont have to bring race into this, well that and im not a dumbocrat, Nolan I dont know if you or G-Off take more weenie, but it would be interesting to compare stats, anyways if you cant tell I had to unload this somewhere since I just got my Twitter account banned for saying that these faggot transgendered people, who are fucking men, should be able to compete against woman, in sports, cause it's pretty obvious nobody who could compete in athletics against their own gender, have to go compete in a lower level, I mean if they ever want to feel victory, isnt that why anyone would want to be a man and compete against a woman? sorry im lost, i cannot even guess the mindset behind that, you can dress like a fag and still compete against dudes, right?
    • Yay! Also one of the best guitarists, you get lots of people that copy Vai, Malmsteen, EVH e.t.c. and do it superbly well but never seen anyone come close to getting Steve Howes style. Although on recent live albums (less said about them the better)  it sounds like he has slowed a lot from his heyday.
