Here’s what’s spinning today:

  • Danger Danger – s/t (1989): Something about late ’80s Hard Rock still sounds fresh. Danger Danger came on the scene late but still managed a solid debut.
  • Torch – Fireraiser E.P. (1982): Only five songs on this debut but a nice trip to Metal’s past. Loud and fast from Sweden.
  • Thunder – Giving The Game Away (1999): Not the hardest rocking album from Thunder, who also came in towards the end of the ’80s. A solid band with a solid back catalog.
  • Frehley’s Comet – s/t (1987): A good debut by the Ace. I remember buying this the day it came out, I still get excited listening to this album.
  • Van Halen – VH III (1998): It’s still not Gary Cherone’s fault.
  • Def Leppard – High ‘n’ Dry (1981): Still can’t get the show from two weeks ago out of my head. This record is a classic.
  • Westworld – s/t (1998): Tony Harnell (from TNT), Bruno Ravel (from Danger Danger), and the great Mark Reale (from Riot) form to create an album of superb Melodic Hard Rock. A lost classic from the late ’90s.
  • KISS – Lick It Up (1983): Gotta have my daily dose of my favorite band.
  • Scorpions – Eye II Eye (1999): If you saw this tour, then you know that these songs are much better live. There are good songs here, especially the ballads, you just have to get by some of the samples and beats.

Tale Of The Tape:
Dell DJ 30 (1st gen)
