'Following a dalliance with a Disco career in the late 70's working with KC from KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND (!), Teri De Sario, if the critics were to be believed, suddenly opted to record a Rock album. Released on Casablanca in 1980 the 'Caught' record featured Richie Zito, TOTO's STEVE LUKATHER and fellow session king MICHAEL LANDAU on guitars, Dennis Belfield on bass and ex-IRONHORSE man Mike Baird on drums, amongst other session players.
'I'm With You Now' comes from no less a source than DESMOND CHILD. The record came in for some heady acclaim but ultimately disappointed many Rock fans when the grooves revealed not the expected AOR but some rather uninspired and exceptionally lightweight semi-dance music. Only the title track hinted at Rock. The 'Caught' album was never bettered by the talented Teri De Sario whose sporadic releases since 1980 have, with the possible exception of 1985's Japanese issued 'Overnight Success', been extremely disappointing and hardly merit inclusion here, De Sario moving towards a more spiritual path. 'Overnight Success' renewed Teri's relationship with Richie Zito and although not as inspired as the seminal 'Caught' still found the woman
rocking out on occasion.'
If I were you, I wouldn't take RockDetectors words for granted on this one.
Her apparence on the recently posted Striktly For Konnoisseurs makes her inclusion here quite logical. And I like the album. The rest I've heard of her aren't that impressive, or, not my cup of tea. Actually I prefer coffee.
If you like female AOR, you can't go wrong with this one.
