HARLOW - st CD 90
Since commentor S.D. Joe mentioned this album a while ago and I finally found it albeit a CD, I am going to use his words to describe it: Ever come across an Eve Moon-ish, femme-fronted hard rock opus named HARLOW? The femme in question was named Teresa Strayer, the guitar player was a pre-Kiss Tommy Thayer, this is maybe 1988 or so....anyway, the album was corporate-product, hard rock-cum-AOR like a million others back then, that managed to rise above the rest of the also-rans with good songwriting, killer vocals and guitar, and making sure they were ready to kick ass when the tape was rolling. One of those otherwise-forgotten lps that caught whoever was lucky enough to hear it by surprise. Anyway... should you stumble across HARLOW, do everyone a favor and rip it. Like that fat Cajun used to say, I ga-ronn-tee!
