Shadow King was Lou Gramm’s first foray in a band format since his departure from Foreigner in April 1991.Freed of the strictures of the AOR Monolith that Foreigner became in the late-eighties, Gramm’s short-lived band really kicked ass with punchy, commercial songs and a hard rock sensibility punctuated by Turgon’s deft keyboard fills and Campbell’s understated guitar. Gramm’s vocals were as distinctive as ever. Essential.

Coming from New York in the early 90s, Alleycat Smile played Hard Rock with influences from L.A Guns amd Sven Gali but due to the explosion of Grunge, did not get the deserved attention. Ritual, Whip Strikes Flesh, Starlight, Sayonara, Kid Electric and Castles In The Sky are all songs that you should definitely give a listen to. Enjoy!

Released in 1991, Baton Rouge's second album Lights Out on the Playground is another in a long list of albums that deserved far more attention that it received at the time. It was a very melodic hard rock album with a definite blues flavor; it featured a dynamic vocalist in Kelly Keeling, and it boasted behind-the-scenes support by former Surgin' mainman Jack Ponti, whose songwriting skills were among the best in the business. If you haven't heard Baton Rouge yet, but are a fan of the late 80's and early 90's hard rock sound, you'll definitely want to check out Lights Out on the Playground.

Awesome hair metal/hard rock with stunning tunes and logic riffs and catchy arrangments. "She's That Kind Of Girl" rocks, "Lights,Camera,Action" is a blast, "Keep You" is such as great ballad. "Everything I Ever Wanted" is pretty cool as well Check it out!

Released in 1991, Hard as a Rock was the first (and only) album from Canadian rockers Dirty Rhythm. Canada was a major source of quality melodic rock bands in the 80's and early 90's, serving up bands like Loverboy, Honeymoon Suite, Blue Tears, and Von Groove. I'd file Hard as a Rock in the same category as albums by Slaughter, Firehouse, and Skid Row. If you're a major 80's rock fan, it's definitely worth adding to your collection.

Open Invitation, the German's Roko 2nd hard rock / melodic hard rock album. The music is European Melodic Hard Rock , with Great guitars, awesome keys, strong backing vocals, in the vein of Pink Cream 69, Bonfire and Fair Warning. A jewel of Hard Rock, with killer tracks like "Hot nights in Africa ", "All Your Love" and "Leave me Alone". Well worth your time.

Trouble is in the same basic style as Fuel For Your Soul. It’s somewhere between the Hollywood hair metal sound and the more polished European melodic rock sound. Think King Kobra meets Bonfire, but with vocals similar to Ken Tamplin (of Shout). It’s fun stuff, even if it’s not terribly original. Alfonzetti does a solid job, and Mike Grey serves up some wicked guitar work. The four original songs here are probably the best Jagged Edge UK tracks, though the cover of “Good Golly Miss Molly” is a throwaway.

Badlands, featuring absolutely smoking musicianship and vocals courtesy of former Ozzy guitarist Jake E. Lee and awesome singer Ray Gillen (RIP). This band sounds like a cross between Zeppelin, Deep Purple, with a bit of Hendrix and Foghat thrown in here and there. They truly recall the sounds of their heroes while sounding pretty fresh, this is one band that transcends the "hair metal" genre and actually does not sound the least bit dated.
If you like Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Deep Purple, and 70's era Bad Company, then you need to give this a listen.

John Waite, lead singer of early 80’s band, “The Babys” alongside Earl Slick (David Bowie, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Robert Smith) on guitars with this pro shot show during his solo No Brakes Live tour of 1985 , as originally broadcast on MTV. This is a laser disk transfer, so the quality is near perfect.
