Spanos Passion

'Danny Spanos is best know for his 1983 Rock and Roll Album "Passion In The Dark" which produced the top 40 hit single "Hot Cherie" and received big airplay on radio stations nationwide in the summer of 1983. He had a video for the song "Excuse Me" which made it into the MTV video rotation in early 1983. Born and Raised in South Lyon, Michigan, he was know as George Spannos, and went on to play drums under his given name with several groups, including Redbone, known best for their hit song "come and get your love" in the 1970s. He also played drums on the theme music for the 1970s TV series Starsky and Hutch.'

Really not an 'album' as it contains only 5 tracks, more like an EP. It's the best Spanos 'album' I've heard, and the reason might be that his albums tends to be a bit boring in my ears. NOT like Van Stephenson as I've seen mentioned some places, think Eddie Money, think Rod Stewart, and you're pretty close to what style this is. Some highly experienced and respected musicians on this EP. Recommended listening, and your girlfriend might love it.

I agree with you, not a bad album(or ep) but it's miles far from being as good as Van Stephenson, for example.
Worth a listen, and not a bad addition to any AOR collection.
BTW, any chance of getting his 1st self-titled album? (1980 release, I think)

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
