Steve Perry - Street Talk (1983)

Steve Perry (born Stephen Ray Perry; January 22, 1949) is an American singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the rock band Journey from 1978–1987 and 1995–1998. Perry had a successful solo career (currently on hold) throughout the late eighties and early nineties.

Perry was named the 76th greatest singer of all-time by Rolling Stone Magazine on its list of "The 100 Greatest Singers of All-Time," citing his pure vocal tone, technical skill and ability to reach, and sustain, notes over a wide range. Steve Perry is eligible for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, both as a solo artist (since 2009) and as a member of Journey (since 2000). Perry presently lives in Del Mar, California.

Steve Perry - Street Talk (1984)
His first solo album, originally released in 1984. Street Talk contains Perry's biggest hit as a solo artist, "Oh Sherrie", written for his then-girlfriend Sherrie Swafford. The song hit #1 on the Billboard charts and the accompanying music video (also featuring Swafford) was a hit on MTV. Other singles included "Foolish Heart" (peaked at #18), "She's Mine" (peaked at #21), and "Strung Out" (peaked at #40).

There were a number of nods to Perry's pre-Journey band Alien Project on this album—in fact, that band was originally going to be called Street Talk. In the liner notes, Perry dedicates the album to Richard Michaels (the bassist for Alien Project). Also, drummer Craig Krampf was a member of Alien Project later in the 1970s. Street Talk is certified as 2x Platinum (2,000,000) in sales by the RIAA.

Perry's vocal classification is tenor altino, a term used to describe a man who sings in the highest possible male register (above tenor and including what would, if sung by a woman, be called alto or mezzo), using a natural or "full" voice and employing falsetto only in his extreme upper register. Depending on whether the definition being used includes chest voice or is limited to falsetto only, this is also a form of countertenor.

Trixter - Discography

Trixter is an American hard rock band from Paramus, New Jersey. The band achieved moderate success in the early 1990s but disbanded for several years as glam metal lost mainstream popularity. The original members reunited in 2008 to tour and record new material. Trixter was formed in 1983 by Steve Brown and Peter Loran. After the addition of new drummer Mark Gus Scott in 1984, they played their first live gigs. In 1988 bassist PJ Farley joined Trixter, finalizing the lineup. In May 1989 the band landed a deal with Mechanic/MCA Records.

In September 1989 the band went to Hollywood to record their debut album with producer Bill Wray. Trixter was released in May 1990 with the song "Line of Fire" as the single for rock radio. The song slowly climbed the charts, reaching #1 on Z-Rocks Top 100 by July 1990.

Along with the release of the album, Trixter also filmed their first video for the song "Give It to Me Good". In September the band headed out on a nationwide tour and after two weeks they landed the opening slot for Stryper. In mid-October Trixter joined Don Dokken for another tour around the USA. It was on this tour that MTV added the video for "Give It to Me Good". Within one week the video was #1 on the Dial MTV top ten video countdown. The video stayed #1 for five weeks straight.

White Lion - Discography

White Lion - is an American/Danish glam metal band that was formed in New York City in 1983 by Danish vocalist Mike Tramp and American guitarist Vito Bratta. Mainly active in the 1980s and early 1990s, the band achieved double platinum status with their #8 hit "Wait" and #3 hit "When the Children Cry". White Lion disbanded in 1991, but was reformed again by Tramp in 1999 with all new musicians.

After moving from Denmark to New York in 1983, vocalist Mike Tramp (ex-Mabel,ex-Studs) met Staten Island guitarist Vito Bratta (ex-Dreamer) and decided to form a band. The two recruited drummer Nicki Capozzi and bassist Felix Robinson (formerly of Angel) and named the group White Lion.

White Lion was signed by Elektra Records in 1984 and recorded their debut Fight to Survive. However, Elektra was unhappy with the final recording, and after refusing to release the album, terminated their contract.

Both Capozzi and Robinson soon left the band. Nicki Capozzi was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo, and Felix Robinson was replaced by bassist Dave Spitz (brother of Anthrax guitarist Dan Spitz). Within a month of joining, however, Dave Spitz left to play bass with Black Sabbath and was replaced by James LoMenzo.

The album Fight to Survive was eventually re-recorded with new line-up & picked up by RCA and released in Japan in 1984. The small US independent label Grand Slam records finally released Fight To Survive in the US on November 9, 1985. A few months later, Grand Slam records went bankrupt.

Unlike most bands of their genre, White Lion recorded occasional songs that addressed social or political issues such as apartheid ("Cry for Freedom") and the effect of divorce on children ("Broken Home"). The song "Little Fighter" was about the Rainbow Warrior, a ship owned by the environmental group Greenpeace that was destroyed by operatives of the French intelligence service. This concern for political and social issues was also hinted at in the cover art to their album Big Game, which featured a lion's head hidden in tall grass with the White House in the background.

White Lion - Big Game (1989)
Their 3rd Studio Album. In the first half of 1989, still riding high off of the multi platinum success of Pride, White Lion re-entered the studio following the completion of their Pride tour to record the next album, a decision the group later came to regret due to the effects of fatigue from the heavy touring. A musically eclectic follow-up to Pride, the album featured the singles "Little Fighter", "Cry for Freedom", and a cover of Golden Earring's "Radar Love". The album quickly went gold but, without a hit single, sales slowly declined, peaking at #19 on the album charts.

White Lion - Mane Attraction (1991)
The 4th studio album of White Lion. It was released in 1991 by Atlantic Records, and reached #61 on The Billboard 200. After two years of writing and recording, White Lion released Mane Attraction in the summer of 1991. More of a "back to basics" album, centering on strong hooks and melodic hard rock, the album was received well by the fans. Unfortunately, the album failed to reach the top 20 like the last two albums. It received little or no airplay due to the recent Grunge explosion and subsequent backlash on all things "hair metal". The album also contained White Lion's only instrumental song, "Blue Monday", a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan, who had died while the band was writing for the album.

After briefly touring in support of Mane Attraction, Tramp and Bratta decided to call it a day, their last show being held in Boston at the Channel Club in September 1991.

Poison - Discography

Poison is an American glam metal band that achieved success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. To date, the band has sold more than 25 million records worldwide, including 14.5 million in the United States alone. After 25 years, the band is still recording music and performing.

Poison was formed in 1983 under the name Paris and consisted of lead vocalist Bret Michaels, guitarist Matt Smith, bassist Bobby Dall, and drummer Rikki Rockett. Moving to Los Angeles on March 6, 1984, they started playing big clubs and several other clubs. The name Poison was picked by the band after seeing Spinal Tap.

During this period, Poison's manager negotiated a deal under which the West Hollywood club, The Troubador, would pay for shows.At this time, Smith left the band to return home to Pennsylvania, which led to an audition session that was won by C.C. DeVille.

Michaels, Dall, Rockett and DeVille signed to independent label Enigma Records in 1986 (see 1986 in music) for approximately $30,000. Their debut album, Look What the Cat Dragged In, was released August 2, 1986

* * * * * * * * * *

Poison - Look What The Cat Dragged In (1986)
Though not a success at first, the album steadily built momentum and peaked at #3 on the charts on May 23, 1987. The album spawned four singles, three of them charting successfully: "Talk Dirty to Me", "I Want Action", "I Won't Forget You", and "Cry Tough". The album is a prime example of the glam metal genre both musically and image-wise. The album ultimately has sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide, one of their bests sold albums.

03. I Won't Forget You

Poison - Open Up And Say... Ahh!
The second studio album of Poison, released in 1988 through the Enigma label of Capitol Records. The album, which ultimately sold eight million copies worldwide, proved to be the band's most successful release. It spawned four hit singles, which are "Nothin' but a Good Time", "Your Mama Don't Dance", "Fallen Angel", and their only number one single to date, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn". The album is widely considered a classic in the glam metal genre.

Open Up and Say... Ahh! reflects a style commonly characterised as glam metal, a form of heavy metal which had its genesis on the East Coast of the United States (and, in particular, the sound of New York City band Kiss), but which was transplanted to the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, California in the 1980s. However, the album contains less of a heavy metal influence than a typical glam metal album, rather being more traditional rock and roll-based. The west-coast influence is reflected more prominently on the album than on its predecessor, Look What the Cat Dragged In, with aspects of Van Halen styled Californian stadium rock becoming increasingly apparent.

The album was recorded and mixed at Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles. Paul Stanley from KISS (whose song "Rock and Roll All Nite" had been covered by Poison the year before) was originally selected to produce the record, but was unable to fulfill the role due to scheduling conflicts. Instead, the band worked with Tom Werman. Werman was an experienced rock producer, having worked with artists such as Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick, Twisted Sister, and M�tley Cr�e.

The original front cover of the album, which featured model "Bambi" dressed as a luminous red demon with a protruding tongue (similar to Gene Simmons of Kiss), caused controversy amongst church and parental groups. In previous U.S. releases, the album was released with a censored cover in which most of the model�s face was obscured. The 2006 remastered CD release features the original cover art.

Poison - Crack a Smile... and More! (2000)

Their 5th studio album released on March 14, 2000 and peaked at #131 on The Billboard 200. The life cycle of Crack a Smile, which began in 1994, was brought to an abrupt halt in May 1994, when vocalist Bret Michaels lost control of his Ferrari. Michaels suffered a broken nose, ribs, jaw, and fingers and lost four teeth.

After his recovery in 1995, the band continued recording. To the band's dismay, however, Capitol Records had by this time decided to put the album "on the back burner", and instead released a Greatest Hits record. It was not until March 14, 2000 that the record was finally released. The album's eventual release was prompted by strong fan demand, with promotional copies and bootlegs selling for $50 or more.

Poison - Seven Days Live (2008)
Released August 26, 2008 on Armoury Records. The timing for the release of this CD is unfortunate. Barely a month ago the far superior Live, Raw & Uncut live CD/DVD was released by a different record label. - releasing two different live CDs in a month is a bit of hair metal overload.
Seven Days Live is the CD version of a 1993 concert recorded in London. It was originally released on DVD in 2006 and on VHS back in 1993. At the time C.C. Deville was not in the band, and Richie Kotzen was Poison's guitarist. For some reason, they chopped five songs from the original concert that were on the DVD, but not on this CD.

The 10 songs (plus a drum solo) on Seven Days Live include Poison's biggest hits such as "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Talk Dirty To Me" and "Unskinny Bop." The sound quality is decent, although the background vocals are sometimes a little shaky.

01. Ride The Wind
02. Something to Believe In
03. Stand
04. Fallen Angel
05. Look What The Cat Dragged In
06. Drum Solo
07. Until You Suffer Some Fire and Ice
08. Unskinny Bop
09. Talk Dirty To Me
10. Every Rose Has It's Thorn
11. Nothin' But a Good Time

Seven Days Live is the only recording of the Richie Kotzen era.

RP Band - Strange Storms
2nd Album of RP band (aka. Rock Project), released 1988. This Legendary band composed of Bob Aves (Guitarist) and (Rock Vocalist) Goff Macaraeg. "Damsel of Distress", "You" & "Starlight Blue" Were among the hits being airplayed by NU 107 during the 1980's. Since the release of their 1st album Street Legal (1986), OPM Rock has never been the same.

Anyone who listens to their music is being transported 10 years ahead of Rock music, because of Bob's guitar sound. And lyricist / singer Goff made it possible that his high vocal range made us think this is a "Foreign Band".
