Zar - Heart Of The Night

Zar – Heart Of The Night

Zar - Heart Of The Night

Opening track from the album “Live Your Life Forever” released by Hurricane Records in 1990. This album has delightful hints of AOR and a crisp of melodic rock, all in a wonderfully played and executed package.
Zar’s vocalist on this album is John Lawton known in the 1970s as the singer of Lucifer’s Friend. Through the years Lawton was involved in several projects including Les Humphries Singers in the early 1970s and Gunhill in the mid 1990s. He also recorded three albums with Uriah Heep: Firefly (1977), Innocent Victim (1977) and Fallen Angel (1978)

Jillson - Deadly Girl

Jillson – Deadly Girl

Jillson - Deadly Girl

Jillson originated from Nevada and are better known for multi-instrumentalist Don Jillson (aka Tommy Paris) later replacing “Dizzy” Dean Davidson on vocals with BRITNY FOX, & recording 2 albums to date with them (“Bite Down hard” & “Springhead Motorshark”). He remained as BRITNY FOX’s vocalist until he was replaced by Jamie Fletcher in 2008 with that act splitting up shortly thereafter.

JILLSON originally released a 4-track EP in 1986 featuring the tracks: “Take it All The Way”, “InTouch”, “Use Me”, & “The End” (with only a re-recorded version of “The End” appearing as a bonus track on the Retrospect reissue of JILLSON’s lone LP from 1990 titled, “Deadly Girl”). The lineup on that EP only featured 2 members: Don Jillson (v/b/g/d/k) & Scott Evans (g). It’s unclear if there were any other lineups before or after that EP, but Don would put together a lineup featuring: Terry Ripley (g), Jamie Warren Borden (d) (ex-STRANGER, ex-DIVINE JUDGEMENT, ex-J.J.T. + others), & Dale Borden (b/k).

They would record the “Deadly Girl” LP in 1990 with the Retrospect reissue including 3 bonus tracks that were recorded shortly after the album (likely in 1990 as well). Don Jillson would join BRITNY FOX afterwards as well as DIVINE JUDGEMENT with Jamie Warren Borden, & would more recently tour with the Classic Rock act COUNT’S 77 that features Danny “Count” Koker on vocals from the television series “Counting Cars” (it’s unclear if Don Jillson is currently with that group or not).

Don would also record material once again with Jamie Warren Borden & guitarist Jimmy Crespo (ex-AEROSMITH, ex-ADAM BOMB, ex-ROUGH CUTT, ex-FLAME, Solo) with material more recently being unearthed by Retrospect Records as well. The JILLSON sound was criminally underrated Melodic Rock with AOR/HM/Glam tendencies best comparable to “Bite Down Hard”-era BRITNY FOX as well as some of the bands mentioned above & also acts such as REO SPEEDWAGON & CHICAGO during their lighter moments 90s indicated by Retrospect Records). Don Jillson also recorded a Solo LP under the “Tommy Paris” moniker in 2002 that was more along the lines of modernized garbage.

Love/Hate - Blackout In The Red Room

From the debut studio album by Love/Hate. The album was released on 22 February 1990 on Columbia Records and reached #154 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

Love/Hate are known for their high energy performances. At their gigs in the early 90s, the band’s bass player Skid would often kick off the gig with a wild dance using a cross made out of Budweiser cans. They played the sort of venues where stage diving and crowd surfing made for a very frenetic atmosphere.
