Rockcity Records was a label run by Lou Vetere, former vocalist for TEAZER.
The label released the 1984 compilation LP "New York Metal - 84", which featured the likes of VIRGIN STEELE, OVERKILL and BLACK LACE.
1990 saw the label's final release, a belated follow up to the earlier compilation, the cleverly titled, "New York Metal II".
By this time Rockcity had moved away from its pure Metal roots, though as a Hard Rock compilation this album is rather good.

Here's a track-by-track review of the album by Keir from

DEVIAS - Bad Girls : Glammy Hard Rock with some great Metal guitars that remind me of LIZZY BORDEN's more mainstream work. Features the vocals of Frank Vestry who sang on the debut LP by BURNING STARR.
ROCKSLIDE - Crazy Lady : Good melodic Metal with a bit of a LILLIAN AXE feel to it.
GRIMM JACK - Downtown : Decent Hard Rock/Sleaze.
HANG 'EM HIGH - Paradise : Bluesy Hard Rock in the style of BADLANDS.
STREET PIRATES - Hell's Kitchen : Awkward Sleaze, though I can hear some influence from heavier artists such as OZZY OSBOURNE.
CANNON - Coming Down On You : Early '80s style American Hard Rock/Heavy Metal with an end of the decade commercial edge.
KIDD BLAST - Rockin' Horse Rock : This is basically TAKASHI with Lou Vetere himself on vocals (under the pseudonym Vixx Vett). Unfortunatly they play lame Sleaze/Party Rock on this track.
MAJENTA - Gone Tomorrow : Odd mix of Progressive Metal and mainstream Hard Rock like QUEENSRYCHE meets Y&T.
3 DAYZ DIRTY - I Want It, You Got It : Boring Glam/Sleaze.
DIRTY HANDS - The Score : Heavily distorted guitars and gravelly vocals usually indicate Metal, but when you strip those away it's just old fashioned Rock and Roll.
JUSTICE - Freedom : Good but sloppy US Metal.
PRANCER - Like It : Female fronted Hard Rock, like a less metallic BLACK LACE.

Not my cup o' tea, but figured I'd be a beta tester and the DL mirror worked for me too. Thanks...

Thanks for taking the time to let me know how it went folks.
So far, so good, everyone seems to be positive about mirrorcreator, so it is now right at the top of my list of possible filehosts.
I'll continue to research other possibilities, in case i find an even better solution, but so far this is looking like the way forward.
I'm still a few weeks away from being back in posting action, but fear not, it will happen.
All the best,

Filefactory and freakshare show as offline...all the others are there and working. I would just suggest that you name the rar file something bogus or abbreviated, otherwise the links are going to get whacked for copyright by sites like Rapidshare and Mediafire.

A bit off-topic, but wanted to say thanks for the great Outlaws recording recently posted, been enjoying that one a lot. They remind me of ASBURY with a country flavor worked in. Definitely a group I'll follow up on.
