    Here is the lone album by San Jose, California's Spectre. It was independently released in 1985 and is a cross between hard rock and classic metal. My vinyl scans are included.

    Thanks VardisRules, i don't think i've heard this one.
    It's always good to find something 'new' to explore from the classic era.

    I've had a chance to hear it a few times now and i'm pretty impressed, if slightly confused by their schizophrenic nature.
    There's a NWoBHM influence in some places, big commercial hooks in others and weird atmospheric (almost prog) guitar parts all over the place.
    Dark Star meets Icon meets Manilla Road or something.
    Or Ruffians meets Dagger meets Legend (Jersey)?
    Whatever, it's an odd mix.
    There's some real depth to the music and some good tight playing too, with the guitarwork being particularly impressive.
    Some of the more overtly cock-rockin' moments are a bit cliched, but they deliver even those with so much enthusiasm that it's hard to dislike.
    Shame about the dumb-assed nature of some of the lyrics, but as the singer sounds like Frank DiMino from Angel at times, i'll forgive them.
    For a private press from '85, presumably recorded on a shoestring budget, there's a lot to enjoy here.
    Nice find.
