Boys as toys. Believe it or not, this version actually maintains the crushing sloppiness of the original. For everyone who has had wet dreams of Joan Jett covering this song, this should be a welcomed substitute.
Rovi Corporation. Retrieved 10 July Get Ready to Rock! Retrieved 5 July The album follows on the heels of the excellent "Nightmare at Maple Cross" in which the band attempted a returned to their classic, early 80's sound. Raw, biting British heavy metal with a punk-like delivery. The album is packed full of tight grooves, catchy riffs and super hooky songs. Album opener "Action" should have been a hit single for the band. The album contains also the cover of The Sweet's single "Fox on the Run", which apparently was chosen as a single for the album.
If "Action" wasn't chosen as a single, it should have been. Rather it's another upbeat pop-laden metal number. It doesn't top the first couple records, but it comes close.
Girlschool Progressive My first exposure to Girlschool was the "St. My expectations weren't real high, being that this was a "newer" album by Girlschool and somehow I expected something less than what they were in the 80's.

Surrender 4. He's simply one of the most talented singer-songwriters of the past quarter century. With The Stranger, he reached the top of the charts and created one of his most enduring works at the same time.
The alternate vocal take on "She's Always a Woman" is also a highlight it shows a different dimension to the song. This cd has alot of material, it is well produced and the packaging is very cool. It's a good price for a 2cd set. I nabbed one, and I love it. Most of their early stuff is out of print. They are harder than the Runaways - good catchy riffs, heavily influenced ny Motorhead.

The early vocals unfortunately sound no better than Suzi Quatro! They could always play and are as honest as the day is long.
