Getting to the middle.......

A ton of stuff here, and some shockers, but I will tackle as the blogger pics come up. This is more of the Tor-Erik collection and now I am a bit over halfway done with the megapost. I only have a pic for the Best of but here are two albums from Teaze a great hard rock band.

Teaze - The Best Of

Teaze - Teaze

Here is the rare self titled LP from Storm. Great AOP from '79 on the MCA label that is absolutely essential if you are into that genre. Great female vox from Jeanette Chase.

Here's some more NWOBHM with Samson live at Reading Fest 1981.

An album barely released in the US, but should have been great is the hard rockin' Rock Rose LP. I have this one on vinyl and have been contemplating ripping it for awhile. Now I don't have to!!!

Here's one of the Norweigian bands I mentioned last night, this is Heaven (and there is a Heaven in almost every country, let's hope there is one after we move on from this life) most people know of the Candian band and the UK bands, now we have the Norweigian AOR band called Heaven.

Easy on the eyes back in '79 and still the same in 2007, here's a shocking one. It's Lisa Hartman's (Now Lisa Hartman Black after marrying country crooner Clint Black) 2nd LP. This one didn't seem to fit anywhere, but since someone might wanna check her beginnings out, I decided to stick it up here. Kinda of poppy stuff but every once in awhile a guitar pops up and jams a bit. Still she was the hottest thing on Friday night television in the states when she was a star on Knot's Landing.

Tor-Erik sent me front back and inner sleeves for this one and I've posted them all. She makes the blog look a bit more comely if nothing else!

And now for a whole bunch of Dan Reed. Great underated stuff that somehow got lumped in with the hair metal scene in the U.S. although his music has much more substance than that genre. I think this is almost everything by the Network, his band.

Dan Reed Network - 4 x EP's

Dan Reed - Breathless (Debut Mini Album) '86

Dan Reed Network - B-Sides & Extra

Dan Reed Network - Dan Reed Network

Dan Reed - Sharp Turn EP

Dan Reed Network - Slam

Dan Reed Network - The Heat

And here are a bunch from the great southern hard rock band Blackfoot.

Blackfoot - Rattlesnake Rock'n'Roll (Best of)

Blackfoot - Live King Biscuit 1998

Blackfoot - Indian World Live 1981

Blackfoot - No Reservations

Blackfoot - Live 1981 @ Donnington

And here's one I remember seeing at used record stores all the time (always a dj promo copy!!) in the late 80's and was never willing to try. Lisa Price's Priceless and while I won't quite go for priceless to describe it, it's pretty good femme vox AOR. Your typical female hard rock type stuff of the early 80's.

And now for the 2nd band I ever saw in concert (and the first I ws at without parents). Now that I think of it, the first two concerts I went to were both Canadian bands (Rush was the first). They had bought a stage setup from Genesis for their "Nature of the Beast" tour and it was a cool show. Anyways, here's a couple early ones, a couple live shows and one later one from April Wine.

April Wine - April Wine

April Wine - Stand Back

April Wine - Forever For Now

April Wine - Live KBFH

April Wine - Live Bootleg

Don't know much about this or the two that follow it that I couldn't get the pics to load for. I am figuring these to be more Norweigian hard rock. First one is living in a boy's World by Aina and the second is the band Perfect Crime with their 1990 LP Blonde on Blonde. The third is a cool hard AOR LP by Wendy & the Rockets.

Aina - Living In A Boys World

Perfect Crime - Blonde On Blonde 1990

Wendy and the Rockets - Dazed For Days

Okay that's all for today. It's enough for now isn't it?
If not, don't fret, more to come tomorrow. Clear those hard drives!

To be honest, I have no idea. I haven't had a chance to listen to a lot of this stuff myself. There is just too much of it. But as I said over at time traveller, what a problem to have!!

I think you may be right, i'm pretty sure "Indian World" is the title of one of the bootleg releases of the Donington show.
Tor-Erik, thank you so very much again!
If anyone needs cover art for any of yesterdays albums there's a link to most of them in yesterdays comments box.

Wow there's some great stuff here to download. I actually stumble upon this site when i was searchin' for a band called Storm (Jeanette Chase on vocals). I don't actually like the album listed here but I know off some unreleased demos from this band although the incomplete versions i downloaded once were listed under The Storm, which puzzled me cause this isn't a female fronted band. Anyway i have reason to believe they are Storm tracks and i gotta tell ya they're really awesome. Songs like: I'll be lovin you, Help me keep this love alive, leave well enough alone,... Has anyone heard off these tracks?
Please let me know, thanx.
