This is my first post and my last resort. I picked this record up about a year ago simply because the cover looked so ridiculous and the back cover even moreso... the real kicker is when you find out who the lead singer is (the bald guy with the ponytail). The record itself is in mint condition, the sleeve obviously not so much. But boy, what a shocker, when I first played the album (and keep in mind I am not at all a metal guy) I was incredibly impressed with the sound. These guys really, really rock and in a VERY 80's hair metal band sort of way. There is a heavy Ozzie and AC/DC influence at work here. From all the research I have done these guys were a Cortland NY, band. Same city that produced Ronnie James Dio... CNY in the 80's had a glut of hair metal bands but nothing has ever snuck up on me like this. If you have instagram, you can find my video samples of the record at masonspeedthethird. Anyway, discogs, popsike, collectorsfrenzy and ebay have all let me down. I can't find out anything about this album let alone its worth. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thank you much!!

Furthermore the album as a whole.... It's solid silly 80's hair metal which vaguely sounds like it was recorded in a garage. The arrangements though are super slick. And there is enough human error for it to charm you if you're tickled by those things. I think its a lot of fun and I want to know more about it.

Good luck! If you find it I hope you enjoy it.
