Like the title says, SMOKIN' !!!!!!!!

From: Delbert Date: February 23, 2004 at 16:53
Those of you who like ELI - Push It Hard will fall in love with this very little known gem. There are also some influences of DONATELLO in a few spots as well. A Killer CD that is a must have!!!!

From: TheRealHarpo Date: February 26, 2004 at 21:34
Movie Star???? Not that Harpo I guess....

From: Mokadeth Date: March 29, 2004 at 4:46
This is an excellent album from Harpo, one of their best. They have 5 albums all together, they had one after this one which is a live album. I have seen them live dozens of times, they are from my area. They have been broken up for about 5 years, and have done 1 reunion show about 3 years ago. Great Hard Rock/Melodic Metal. Also, former members of Harpo, Jack Pyers and Brian Perry when on to be in Dirty Looks. If anyone wants and info on Harpo, let me know.

From: biku524 Date: April 26, 2004 at 13:51
Mokadeth is right , these guys were awesome! I only wish I could lay my hands on some of their recorded work so I could convert it to CD. Any help out there? wkuitems@msn.com

The FIRST release from Harpo, which was only available on LP, is the one to find. It features Jack Pyers, who went on to join Dirty Looks. The live album is killer. I also have the 2nd LP (another record). Only heard it once until my record player died. Good stuff. I don't think Harpo ever made a bad album. Everything they did was killer. (creeper@sunlink.net)

Just saw some good news in the local entertainment weekly mag here in Pa. Harpo will be playing some reunion dates in March starting March 19. I can't wait to see them play live again!!!!

From: LV KIX Date: February 15, 2005 at 0:14
Dan.... Keep us posted on the dates to the shows if you can. It would be fun to come up and see them again. Thanks....Dave

From: Double J Date: February 18, 2005 at 22:07
I just saw an OLD show poster of these guys on E-bay.I think it was from the early 80's.

From: Date: March 15, 2005 at 16:21
I'll have to find the announced dates but they're playing the Staircase in Pittston this weekend, March 19!!! And Prowler is opening for them.

I'll find the announced dates but I know for sure they're playing the Staircase in Pittston this weekend, March 19. And Prowler is opening for them.

Some of Harpo's club dates: Mar 25 - The Peppermint - Sunbury, PA Apr 23 - Club Paparazzi - Frackville, PA Jun 4 - The Coal Hole - Shamokin, PA

From: danthecdman Date: March 22, 2005 at 16:33
I can't confirm this, but I was told that Harpo was only playing four shows for the reunion tour, the Pittston show and the three listed to follow.

From: Geoff Date: March 22, 2006 at 22:01
Wow, I could have sworn these guys were German! It sounds like the singer's got an accent and I was likening these guys to Zardoz, or some fellow European hard rockers. I wasn't in the mood to hear this and it didn't go down too well, but I guess it's good solid hard rock. Very unoriginal, nothing new here. It's good for what it is, but I wouldn't bother recommending it.

From: girapolli Date: March 23, 2006 at 4:49
average release, don't act as a pollo wasting too much money on it, heard that the other releases 1993 - 1992? are far better but more hard to find around

From: Bobby De Date: July 14, 2006 at 6:18
Oh my God, cool, if those pussy AOR dorks are knocking this albm...Then it must be descent! Thanks Geoff! where are all your buddies, couldn't peel them away from the Survivor albms, God, I wish you would all just stay in your little Aor suck realm and leave anything metal to the pros!

From: z4roxx Date: November 3, 2006 at 13:09
Please someone can write me the track list of”armed to deliver”cd?and eventually some demo material if exist…thanks!!

From: girapolli Date: June 12, 2007 at 19:04
