In 1983, it seemed like Eric Martin had it made. Aged 23, but looking like he wasn’t old enough to buy a pack of cigarettes, he was a great singer whose Bay Area-based band was signed to Elektra Records and managed by Herbie Herbert, the guy who had helped make Journey one of the biggest rock acts in America. Herbert also enlisted Journey’s producer Kevin Elson for the Eric Martin Band’s debut album Sucker For A Pretty Face, and got them opening for Journey in arenas. It wasn’t enough. By 1985, Martin had split the band to go solo, with drummer Troy Luccketta going on to join Tesla. Nevertheless, it was a good album, full of punchy, melodic hard rock songs, such as the title track and Don’t Stop, the latter co-written by Scottish singer Frankie Miller. And Martin, with that voice, sounded like a star in the making. But he would make even better records – a brilliant, self-titled solo album in 1985, and an all-time AOR classic, These Are The Good Times, on the Iron Eaglemovie soundtrack. And at the end of the 80s, with the supergroup Mr. Big, Eric Martin did at last find success. He’d earned it.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of his best, Eric sounds great on this. the players are all ace. the songs are memorable, and well-written. this is just a great LP from one of the best voices in popular music today. 5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of the 80s, This rare LP contains unique music that few are aware of. It contains the song “Eyes of the World”, which was featured in the movie “Iron Eagle”, in addition to nine other songs with the classic 80s trademark beats and synthesized sounds. The songs themselves are cool and recorded beautifully and Eric Martin is a fair vocalist. Overall the album is fun and a treasure from the 80s that no rock enthusiast should be without. 5.0 out of 5 stars Yes!, Eric Martin is often lumped together with performers like Kenny Loggins and Stan Bush, however Eric Martin has both of them beaten significantly. Eric Martin has one of the best singing voices on the planet, and it shines through on this record.
