A fixed Gambler, Hilly, Randy & some Brits...

First off, my own rip of this Gambler album, my first blogging of it had an error on the last track, and was something I found on the net a long time ago. So I ripped the whole album. Hope you find this better. For more details bout this album & band, look in the archives.

RANDY HANSEN

I'm a sucker for topics & loose threads. So, having posted Striker here (look in the archives), brings me to this album by guitar virtuos Randy Hansen, as one third of this guitar based power trio from 1980, Striker's Scott Rosburg on Bass & Vocals.Seattle born Randy Hansen used to play in a Hendrix cover band, Machine Gun.
I never gave this album a very heavy rotation when I bought it, the cheap production makes it sound like something between an unfinished demo or a recorded loose jam session at the studio, not a finished product in my ears. Not bad, just not quite finished. As for the guitar part, mostly smokin', but there's no way to avoid a mentioning of Hendrix, but also Frank Marino, who've done this better for years and years, Stevie Salas and even Edgar Winter Group feat. Rick Derringer, to describe what you're in for if you choose to download this album. A rare one anyway, for your collection.

Hilly Michaels
New York session drummer Michaels (Michael Hilman, originally from New Haven, CT) who played on records by Ian Hunter, Sparks (drums on 'Big Beat') and Ellen Foley before becoming a singing, songwriting solo artist. Two albums of '80s over-produced new wave-era pop with hooks'. His second album 'Calling All Girls' was produced by Roy Thomas Baker, is concidered as his best (that one I don't have... anyone?), with Foley, Liza Minnelli, former bandmate G.E. Smith, Elton John guitarist Davey Johnstone, Greg Hawkes of the Cars, Dan Hartman (R.I.P.) and others.

"Calling All Girls" may be regarded as Hilly's best LP but IMO it's not as good as the other where the songs are stronger and there's great atmospheric tracks.

I have two copies of the Randy Hansen, ripped it myself, but your rip is nicer, thanks so much. I agree it could be better, but I guess it is just a product of my youth, having seen him in Reno in 1980 opening for Poco of all bands.

Hey man.
Thanks for all the great music. Lots of records here that I don't have.
If you have a copy of "Good Rats - Rat city in blue" lying around somewhere I would very much appreciate if you post it. It seems impossible to find around the blogs.
Once again - Thank You.
