"Betsy" was called "Bitch" and also in a band called "The Boxboys"-a poppy ska band."Bitch" was more bondage like metal.

From: REne Date: January 18, 2003 at 19:27
I prefer BITCH, much heavier on METAL BLADE records. The Ep from BITCH "DAMNATION ALLEY" from 1982 is a U.S METAL CLASIC like BE MY SLAVE

From: Jayglam Date: April 9, 2003 at 7:55
Betsy from bitch released this CD in 88 under her own name but with the same band. Betsy sounds similar to Pat Benatar but much better. She Looks good and sings great. Much more commercial than bitch and heaps better in my opionion. Jay from Australia.

From: dave simpson Date: September 20, 2003 at 14:05
Great CD but can't find a copy anywhere. Have her Bitch stuff but this would be great to add to my collection. Can anyone help.

From: Rene Date: September 20, 2003 at 15:16
I am a big Betsy fan(specialy the BITCH era) and in June 2003, at the BANG YOUR HEAD festival, the night before their was a special metal party with HIRAX, STORMWITCH and DESTRUCTOR(U.S.A) playing live and who was their, BETSY. I talked to her and she was so nice and still look great, even better then before. She is a great girl, very nice to her fans. Yesssssssssss.

From: Headbangin Man Date: June 26, 2004 at 15:26
Yes, more commercial than the Bitch stuff, and for that reason I didn't initially like it. A few years passed, and I played it again, and love it. Betsy's voice, David's guitar, 'nuff said. Still like Bitch stuff too. "You want it, You got it"

From: Brad Date: October 15, 2004 at 13:41
This was one of my Favs of Betsy's, if anyone knows if she is still recording please email me

From: Jonny_B Date: January 28, 2005 at 12:05
Never heard her Bitch stuff. Betsy "S/T" Decent blend of commerical rock and heavy metal ala Girlschool/Warlock.

From: Geoff Date: March 10, 2005 at 6:04
This one was rough as nuts. I can't think there'd be too many out there who'd enjoy this kind of stuff. Call Vixen what you must, but I'll take them anyday over this.

From: FLmetalhead517 Date: June 22, 2006 at 2:53
I have this cassette and it now resides in the darkest corners of my collection, probably never to see the light of day again. I couldn't believe Metal Blade shipped this. Stupid lyrics (ie: "Turn You Inside Out") combined with a Pat Benatar-ian sounding vocalist (so much it makes me wonder if MB pulled a Milli Vanilli here) makes it a real bad listen. Embarassing. 1 out of 10

From: juan carlos Date: July 30, 2007 at 11:57
Buena voz y buen HardRock a lo Pat Benatar.. Me quedo con la fuertona "Stand Up For Rock", "You'll Never Get Out" "Rock N' Roll Musician" "Devil Made You Do It", Buenos coros en "Turn You Inside Out" y "Cold Shot to the Heart". 8/10

From: CLUTCH Date: November 8, 2007 at 18:56
Good stuff. Polished compared to "Bitch", but quite catchy actually. "Never get out of this love alive" will stick in your head like glue. I dig alot of the older female fronted stuff (plenty of big hooks, etc.) and this goes right along with it. Needs to be reissued.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: February 5, 2008 at 2:49
OK 79/100 US MELODIC METAL/HAIR METAL not as HEAVY AS THEIR PREVIOUS ALBUMS under the BITCH name It seems they try to bring the band in a more radio-frendly kind of stuff ! it sounds Very vintage now ,so there is special flavor like a nostalgic environment! Not easy to find

From: Delbert Date: February 5, 2008 at 13:37
This is 80's melodic heavy metal with sass and energy. Singer Betsy Weiss sounds very similar to Amy Wolter (FIGHTER), but packs more metal bite into her vocal delivery.

From: Metal T Date: October 8, 2008 at 21:53
This sucker stands head and shoulders above the earlier "Bitch" stuff.Better production and alot better sound! Betsy finally sounded like she was getting loose vocally on this one and was able to better showcase her talent & isn't being held back by anything.Chick is solid...

From: 123charpenay Date: March 18, 2016 at 17:22
nothing new under the sun.bestsy plays a very classic female fronted hard rock.the originality is not is main quality.decent record.not more.
