Toto Sisters

Cherie & Marie Currie
Not an essential gotta-have in any way, but with most of Toto contributing (Marie later married Steve Lukather, Cherie had a thing goin' on with one of the other Toto's, but she later married actor Robert Hays, from 'Airplane'), it certainly got it's moments. Featuring the over-covered Russ Ballard song 'Since You've Been Gone' and Free's 'Wishing Well', among other tracks written by Bobby Kimball, Eric Carmen, David Paich and Jai Winding.
Are you ready? Mike Baird, Mike Porcaro, Steve Lukather, Joey Brasler, Jai Winding, Trevor Veitch, Bobby Kimball, Michael Botticker, Tom Werman, Bill Champlin, Keith Landry, Tom Funderburk, Billy Bizeau, Waddy Wachtel, Jon Pierce, Mike Landau and Tom Kelly... that's the amazing team responsible for this piece of music. Although the signature marks of all these magicians clearly shines through, it's light weight productionwise compared to what those people later gained of quality. And let's face it, the nice sisters aren't exactly the top notch of female rock singers. Anyway, a fun album, worth having.

Blogs are just now offering up BLACKFOOT SUE but only "Nothing To Hide" for noboby has anything else. BLACKFOOT SUE were a good rocking band wrongly classed as glam . Anyway do you have any others in your excellent collection of material?

Great little LP! The Renaissance CD re issue includes some great extra bonus tracks. Caution around the Raven CD reissue which adds some Cherie Currie solo and Runaways songs - nothing unreleased.

Blackfoot Sue - another great band. Both 70's Lp's are well worth getting. There's a great Best Of.. that has a pile of demo's included. Their often mentioned GUN RUNNING LP doesn't exist at all - never recorded properly and never pressed up or released in any form. Check out their reormation CD (after tries as LINER - crap and OUTSIDE EDGE - cool) "Red On Blue" from 1997, the title track is a 101% melodic rock classic!

Got a dodgy rip of this album. I'm hoping yours is better!
Oh and it may be lightweight & poppy but it is still a STORMER.
