Overlooked!! Contrary to most peoples opinions of sons-or-daughters-of-famous-musicians -generally spoiled and abysmally untalented- Jason and the rest of the band exhibit excellent musicianship and songwriting ability. Its unfortunate that this is out of print; its worth buying for side A alone.
Since this is out of stock, and becoming very rare to find, if you happen to get lucky and find a used copy…pick it up quick!!!
Classic and rare A.O.R single that futures Jason Bonham on drums, with guitarist Laurie Mansworth (also on N.W.O.B.H.M starlets More). The bands’ most striking feature was the highly accomplished vocal style of Keith Murrell (who joined Mamas Boys later on). His powerful Lou Gramm- like warblings led to obvious Foreigner comparisons, but in an approving rather than critical sense. This Beau Hill produced single remains one of the undiscovered melodic rock classics. (Especially the B side really kicks
5.0 out of 5 stars
Although it was released in 1984, it still sounds fresh ,crisp production and great vocals from Keith Murrell, and big big drums from Jason Bonham and the songs aint half bad too.
Well worth the wait,and they are giging again as well ,get along and see em if you can !
