Existing comments about this CD

From: John Date: April 22, 2001 at 21:45
Better than average package with good songs and good production. Highlights are "Itch," "Whiskey," "Sad," and "Girl's Nite." Good '80's rock.

From: koogles Date: January 1, 2002 at 12:44
Pretty desperate heirs to the Motley Crue throne. Good production, but little in the way of memorable tunes or originality.

From: cquicmoi Date: February 3, 2002 at 10:04
Well, this band has nothing new to offer. However, they keep entertaining the listener from the beginning to end. You don't ask yourself why we never heard more of this band. The voice is ok nothing that makes you go wow. The lyrics are not innovative either but as I said, you can have it in the background drinking and partying with your friends and it'll be alright. "I got the Itch" has a good chorus.

From: 11/28/59 Date: July 10, 2002 at 18:09
I like the guitar riffs and solos. The singer lacks that something... Ok production for a no name record co. Oh yeah there is a video for passion too, that played on headbangers ball. Where are they now? Maybe reading these comments made about a time in their lives captured on CD.

From: The Fizzy One Date: September 23, 2002 at 15:56
I'm one of the last guys to make fun of this kind of music, but I had to laugh just reading these song titles.

From: jeff Date: December 25, 2002 at 21:32
i remember these guys when they ruled the sunset strip. great live show, cd is fun to listen to.i think that they are all playing in different bands in the san diego. ray the bass player is playing with rob halford,singer is playing guitar in "tall like god" and steve moroney is playing with the guys in asphalt ballet"

From: hank the killer Date: December 25, 2002 at 21:37
8 out of a possible 10

From: flyer Date: February 21, 2003 at 18:02
saw them open for poison in thunderbay canada, blew poison off the stage. the c.d. is good but live these guys rocked.the singer was more like david lee roth in his prime then any other group that came outa l.a. without trying to be. great live show,i have the 2nd album never released by capitol, very rare and much heavier than the 1st c.d. to bad capitol did not release it.

From: ripper Date: February 21, 2003 at 18:07
great band that never got the musically respect that they deserved, great two guitar attact, incredible live band, i saw them with skidrow in phoenix, and they rocked, they were very cool hanging out after the show signing autographs and letting fans hang out on their tour bus to party.

From: koogles Date: April 4, 2003 at 17:27
"Restless Young and Wild" is a virtual re-write of Tesla's "Modern Day Cowboy".

From: weed Date: July 19, 2003 at 14:12
you guys are nuts. their rendition of bad bad leroy brown is by far the sickest song on the CD. they are definetly a group of guys that got lost somewhere in the genre of musicians that often sounded similar. i dig the album but their jim croce cover is excellent... in ways more memorable even than the original.

It's fun to read all the comments...

From: aorquest Date: February 3, 2004 at 22:07
what was the second album like?

From: 80sMetal1 Date: March 4, 2004 at 16:30
Pretty good stuff, though nothing outstanding. But like I always say, 80s melodic hard rock/metal is a lot like sex, even when it's bad, it's still pretty fuckin good. Anyway, I Got the Itch and Restless Young & Wild are both good tracks, and Passion has some excellent guitar soloing in it. Hell, I have the video for Passion from Headbangers Ball back in the day, and its a BEAST!!!

From: Brad Williams Date: June 9, 2004 at 1:53
Kezzzzz what's up brother ? Haven't heard from you in a while. If you see this, give the old number a call!

From: jason Date: October 7, 2004 at 19:49
out of all the crap that came out of the strip in the 80s, this was an ensamble of great musicians. some really good songs: sad terresa.i bet that the record company dictated the songs, but live theese guys killed.saw them with cheap trick in chicago and they more than held their own up against a vetern band like cheap trick, saw them on vh1 where are they now. where are they now?

From: jimmi Date: October 8, 2004 at 1:35
hey i was in the band. its not like we killed anybody , we were just part of the 80s!we got to see the world and get paid for it, as for the rest of the guys i will say this, their all great guys and great musicians. and yes we all still play in our own projects. if anyone is interested in any of the new projects, or the 2nd unreleased cd, contact tankrot@yahoo.com and i will point you into the right direction, peace, and be kind to each other,jimmi

From: David Date: October 8, 2004 at 2:51
Jimmi, I hope you got my e-mail cause this second album NEEDS to be released!! You should definitly speak to Ryan from Metal Mayhem or John at Kivel Records. Even Z Records is a great label for releasing this unreleased late 80's hard rock. Keep us posted on any progress!! People, so your support!!!!

From: David Date: October 8, 2004 at 2:54
People, show your support!!!

From: Adora Date: October 20, 2004 at 12:35
I'm Jimmi's manager and have seen Dirty Blonde play live since the age of 15. He is a great vocalist and a talented musician. His solo material is amazing aswell. Look for the new Dirty Blonde release coming soon ... in the meantime please try and keep your thoughtless comments to yourself if you have nothing positive to say. We are all entitled to our opinions but c'mon people.

From: Rocker10 Date: October 28, 2004 at 2:10
Sounds good to me! I would avoid Metal Mayhem however. Everything I have heard from this label sounds like shit. Keep us posted on the progress.

From: B. Grimm Date: October 29, 2004 at 20:12
Rocker10 - Glad that I'm not the only one that's heard that. I personally avoid anything that is released on the Metal Meyham label because of the way they (mis)treat the bands. A lot about the bands being ripped off for their music. As for the 2nd album, I'd love to hear it. The first one was damn good. Not over-the-top, good solid rock. Hope it's here soon.

From: David Date: December 13, 2004 at 5:59
Jimmi & Adora, any release date yet?? There are soooo many people looking forward to this!!!!!

From: Geoff Date: March 4, 2005 at 17:19
What is it about this band?! This is not a ground-breaking release, but is just awesome for what it is. Like Daddy Dynamite, there isn't really that couple of mind-blowing gems, but everything on this disc is very good, solid and very consistent. All the tracks are very enjoyable. 'I got the itch' and 'Push comes to shove' are my faves, but if you like US 80's commercial hard rock done well, do yourself a favour and get this one. Recommended.

From: David Date: March 4, 2005 at 17:24
Geoff, you think this release was good, wait to you hear their second album recorded in 1993 coming soon at www.suncityrecords.com

From: Geoff Date: March 4, 2005 at 18:02
Thanks David, I'll certainly keep posted on this one as this sounds like one release I'd love to hear.

From: Trick Taylor Date: May 31, 2005 at 13:54
Classically awful "start with the song title" cliche song writing fills this weak effort. The singer is plain bad. I don't care if he's your buddy or whatever, he's bad, like Vince Neil mailing it in. As for the "manager" poster, if we have something negative to say about this album we most certainly will let it fly. Grow up and take the lumps of living in a free society. Also, couldn't the singer come up with something better than Jimmi St. James for a name. Sucks out loud.

From: juan carlos Date: April 2, 2007 at 22:16
No está mal, me gusta el disco salvo por la voz que no me va mucho, con otro cantante hubiera resultado mejor. "Ladies in Mercedes" mi favorita, la melodía en todo el album está presente así como lo cachondo de las letras o el Party HardRock que practican. La producción está de regular a ok. Lo he escuchado varias veces y tiene ese algo que me dice: no está mal! 8/10

From: metalmaniac777 Date: January 1, 2010 at 11:48
Devoted fans can call me a low-down dirty dog if they want to, but I jettisoned this disc after just one quick spin; it never even made it into my collection, just got tossed straight to the trade pile. Sure, it's OK for what it is--generic Sunset Strip hard rock--but it was nothing I ever needed to hear again, and I've missed it about as much as I miss that ugly blonde my parents made me take to the prom when I was fourteen as punishment for some transgression I no longer recall. Anyway, if you like your hair-metal to be described as "formulaic," "done to death," and "heard a thousand times before," then you may be able to drum up some passion for this band, but everyone else need not bother.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 17, 2010 at 22:01
Ummmm..yeah,this album is quite good,it has catchy Glammy tracks and even some AORish moments ..."I Got The Itch" is a song,"Restless,Young & Wild" kinda AOR,"Sad Teresa" is fine,"Girls Nite Out" & "Hooked On Lovin' You" are both catchy with wild choruses ,"Whiskey In My Veins" ,"Ladies In Mercedes" another kinda AOR track & "Too Cool 4 School" ends the album quite well...83/100....
