"Cool from the Wire" is Dirty Looks' studio album. It was released in 1988 on Atlantic Records. It includes the song "Oh Ruby", that received airplay on rock stations. The album peaked #134 in Billboard 200. Henrik Ostergaard has that whole Bon Scott sound down pretty darn close, and the rhythm section of former Harpo bassist Jack Pyers, drummer Gene Barnett could give AC/DC a run for their money. The 4 musicians on this CD are rock solid. This is one rocking recording, the best from Dirty Looks. If you have never listened to this album… you missed the boat in the mid 80's.
Close is the sixth studio album by Kim Wilde, released in mid 1988. Produced by Ricky Wilde and Tony Swain, Close was the final album on which Marty Wilde had co-writer credits. The album is widely perceived by fans and critics (and Kim herself) as Wilde's most well-balanced, with many kinds of pop represented: dance, ballad, rock and midtempo.
Lita is the third solo studio album by the American rock singer and guitarist Lita Ford. It was originally released in February 1988 and it was her first for RCA Records and her first published with the supervision of new manager Sharon Osbourne. The album features the song "Close My Eyes Forever", a duet with Ozzy Osbourne, and the hit "Kiss Me Deadly", which was named the 76th best hard rock song of all time by VH1. Musicians Don Nossov and Myron Grombacher, who were best known for being the rhythm section of the successful American singer Pat Benatar, joined Ford for the recording sessions and for the promotional tour. The album peaked at No. 29 on the US Billboard 200 chart and the singles "Close My Eyes Forever" and "Kiss Me Deadly" peaked at numbers eight and twelve respectively on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song is also featured on the video game Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol Encore.

Close-Up is very much a collaboration between altoist David Sanborn and Marcus Miller, who serves as producer, bassist and frequently the lead keyboardist. With the exception of Randy Newman's "Same Girl" and "You Are Everything," all of the music was written or co-composed by Sanborn and Miller. Some selections utilize such additional players as guitarist Hiram Bullock, keyboardist Ricky Peterson and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta. In general, the music fits the formula well, offering Sanborn's emotional sax backed by then-modern electronics and funky rhythms.

The album's lead single was "Hey Mister Heartache", featuring backing vocals from Junior Giscombe — but its success was dwarfed by the follow-up single, You Came, which hit the Top 10 in many countries and just missed the U.S. Top 40…
Talk Is Cheap is the debut solo album by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, released in 1988.
