To stay in topic, I return with a great Billy Squier concert. My Kinda Lover, Lonely Is The Night, In The Dark & The Stroke are more than enough to get me goin'. This rocks!

GuitarAlan St. Jon - Keyboards, Vocals
Doug Lubahn - Bass, Vocals

Next one out, Creed. NOT the later post-grunge-'who's-the-most-boring-singer-in-the-world'-group, but the hard rock outfit that released their debut album in '78. Quite rare. And good one. Kinda keyboard-southern-hard-rock touching aor. Sadly I miss track 7 on the rip. I might have to do my own rip when I get the stuff stacked & workin'. And fix the sound a bit too, this is a pretty low rip.Well, enjoy this anyway! Best track: 'Just Don't Stop'. Make me think of both Legs Diamond and a touch of Rush. :))
Steve Ingle (vocals / guitar)
Hal Butler (vocals / keyboards)
Luther Maben (guitar)
James Flynn (bass)
Chip Thomas (drums)

Creed - Creed. 1978.

1. Keep On Rockin'
2. Tied Down
3. Firecracker
4. You Never See It That Way
5. We're Gonna Make It
6. Just Can't Stop
7. Can't Find Love
8. Time And Time Again

Supergroup, someone!?

When you put Graham Bonnet on vocals (Rainbow, MSG, Impelliteri, Forcefield), Bob Kulick on guitar (Michael Bolton, Balance, Kiss, Meat Loaf etc.), Frankie Banali on drums (Quiet Riot, Wasp, Billy Thorpe, Billy Idol), Jimmy Waldo on keyboards (New England, Alcatraz, Malmsteen, House of Lords, Steve Vai) and Chuck Wright - bass (Giuffria, Impelliteri, Quiet Riot) together, something GREAT will happen, right!? Wrong. Never liked this album. When I first heard it, I remember my thoughts were 'old geezer's stay young by playin' stoopid heavy metal' instead of what I know they're all capable of delivering. Well, it's listenable, but no classic, far from it. But if you want to check that out yourself, grab it here!

Blackthorne - Afterlife. 1993.

1. Cradle to the Grave

2. Afterlife

3. We Won't Be Forgotten

4. Breaking the Chains

7. Baby You're the Blood

8. Sex Crimes

9. Love From the Ashes

10. All Night Long

Produced by Bob Kulick.

Features Bruce Kulick on guitar on track 05 & two song-writing credits.

Do you have an album by a band named SUSAN? I think it's from 1979.
Thanx in advance!

Thanks for your blog, I really like it.
By the way, I'm also interested in that Susan album (I think its name was "falling in love"). I had it some years ago but somebody took it from me and never returned

Yes, Susan - Falling In Love Again. 1979.
That'll be my first rip, when it's all set up.

I will not approve on it. I think warm-hearted post. Especially the title attracted me to read the intact story.
