Donnie Miller – One Of The Boys 1989 (Melodic Rock/AOR) USA
“Me and You” is total Eddie Money, a pleasant exercise in mid-tempo textbook AOR. On other places like “Normal Guy (I Want Sex)” and “You Can’t Stop Emotion”, the Tommy Shaw influence is firmly felt. (Tommy sings and wrote on this release.) If you like Tommy Shaws solo work, this LP is highly recommended!

THIS IS ONE KILLER ALBUM. ONE OF THE BEST ROCK TUNES OF THE 80s IS THE DEVIL WEARS LINGERIE.
This is the greatest! You must buy this album! Please but this!
I always thought that the album was cool. The only reason that it didn’t go big in my opinion is because it was released at the tail end of an era when music used to be cool, and you had to actually be able to know how to play and sing.

This album is contains two cracking tracks – ‘Welcome Home’ a mid-paced rocker with superb intro and ‘Normal Guy’ which has got great throw away lyrics!
Only album recorded by this talented singer after that he vanished…shame coz this album offers good songs (maybe this album didn’t fit into the beginning of the new era,the 90s as the 80s were fading away…)anyway songs such as “The Devil Wears Lingerie”(with that particular beat)”Me & You”(wonderful mid tempo ballad),”One Of The Boys” and “Normal Guy (I Want Sex)” are worth in every aspect..
