a true classic aor masterpiece that's cryin' out loud for a cd reissue.if you're into franke and the knockouts then you should seriously check this one out cause it's just as good as franke's releases.obviously you will have to pay someone big bucks for this as it's very rare, but really worth it; take my word for it!!.

I totally agree Rob, this is a real top drawer! This release alongside such classics as Alliance - S/T (Handshake 82), Hotel - Half Moon Silver, Powerglide - Glide On and Preview - S/T truly deserve a CD release.

Great and Classic AOR album, Aca el Fenix comentando un Clasico de los 80 como siempre, ahora hablando de este clasico y mas por ser del 83 una banda con un sonido a los Franke del 84, con cortes llenos de Magia como Niteside, Just Keep Turning Me On, Expose, Night Rider, What A Man Should Know, Two Can Play un Clasico Infaltable. hay tantas Joyitas de los 80 por ahi que pocos saben de su existencia por ejemplo donde esta Fury, Joe Lamont o Delta, quiza poco a poco los pongan aca.

Very good AOR album, only a shame it's not yet released on CD. As mentioned above, if you like Franke & The Knockouts, chances are you will love this one too as it's very much the same in style. But the track listing above is not complete, there are two more tracks on this album: "Night Rider" and "Exposť", both good songs. Tracks 1,2, 6 and 8 are also outstanding.

This one is ok.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 19, 2010 at 17:34
Pretty good album..AOR with some touches of Westcoast here and there and in some specific tracks like for example the starter "When The Feeling Is Gone" & "What A Man Should Know" apart from that it has a nice good vocalist(Mr Bruce Nazarian)..other highlights(talking about the songs) are "Niteside","Expose","Nightrider" & "Two Can Play"(this one is probably the one i liked the most,catchy all over!..the best of the album???...4 me yes!!!)...84/100

totally brand new to my ears. MCA was the label who had Night Ranger under their wings,though,why noone told the band like this to Japan? Pity.
