    Debut by obscure but excellent Hard Rock band.

    this is the band's self-titled debut issued by Mercury Records in 1977. Backed by Michael Lloyd's credentials and solid promotion, the band issued two singles from the album, but ultimately american radio wasn't biting. The band subsequently lost their label deal, only to find a new home with 20th Century Records. A stronger followup, "Boys Will Be Boys", came the following year but whatever momentum the band had built before was essentially gone. The band fractured in 1980 with members working both in and out of the business. Guitarist Neil Citron resurrected the band in the mid-80's to no avail.

    Unlike the muscular "Boys Will Be Boys", this album was closer to harmless pop than robust hard rock. Listening to this gem, one can't help but notice the almost childlike innocence that lies within most of the tracks. There are plenty of standouts like the hook driven "Taxi Driver", "I'm the King, I'm the Star" and "You Are the People". Conversely, there is alot of filler here as well. Tracks like "I Love the Way You Rock & Roll", "Smile", "Runaway" and "You Cheat" aren't necessarily short on hooks, but certainly lacking any real substance or staying power.
