Hard Rock / Glam Metal

As the 80’s turned into the 90’s, the “Hair Metal” era had finally run it course. The advent of Grunge Rock had turned the music industry on it’s head, changing the landscape from a fun loving, Rock n’ Roll party crowd into an angst inspired movement that seemed obsessed with introspective solidarity. As bleak as it may have seemed, there were a few bands that defied logic and continued to sell massive amounts of records early in the 90’s. After their self-titled debut album (1990) reached platinum status, STEELHEART, one of the most talented bands to every grace the Hard Rock genre, was a band with an iconic sound that gave hard rock fans a thread of hope to challenge the “changing of the guard”, if you will. And they were doing it…

A silly title, but a funky little record – one of the only ones we've ever seen from guitarist Jay Berliner, and one of the best cookers from the early 70s Mainstream Records years! The sound here is almost soundtrack funk at points – lots of up-front lines from Berliner on guitar – riffing away over backings that include organ and keyboards from Paul Griffin, congas from Ray Barretto, drums from Jimmy Johnson, and additional rhythm guitar from Cornell Dupree. Wade Marcus arranged, and the sound is tight without being slick – a great sort of Kudu Records-styled groove – and an especially nice setting for Jay's guitar.
