Wild Boyz – Unleashed! (1990)
When I got my Internet account back in 1998, I started searching for Hard Rock bands from my youth. I had (and still have) a ton of old Rock magazines and I would grab a back issue and find bands I had forgotten about and search them. Those searches led me to Ebay and one of the rarest CDs at that time, the only release by California’s Wild Boyz, UNLEASHED!
Ten years ago, this CD was a rarity going for at least a couple hundred dollars at auction but the price has levelled off in the last three or four years. You can get an UNLEASHED! CD on Ebay for $40 – $80…..still a little pricey!
I really don’t know that much about the band. I’ve read the comparisons that Wild Boyz is a combination of Poison, Pretty Boy Floyd and Faster Pussycat but I’ve never actually heard a sample. The only other information I’ve had is that there was a Japanese release with a different cover. One of my collecting quirks is acquiring obscure ’80s Glam/Sleaze releases so I need this one.
