Right ,last one today before i bore you all to death, Les Dudek's classic City Magic, the funkiest stratesque sounding intro known to man followed by a sweet southern egded twin harmony guitar riff from that era that you'll be humimg all day long, if this record doesnt make you feel like a teenager again you must be dead from the waist down, All the best George from Scotland uk.

Not quite a one hit wonder, because it wasn't a hit - but I saw Alan Darby of Cado Belle do this live once, black LP std into a 100W Marshall MV - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gP_m-EQBu8

Back in the day.... 1982... where I lived, I was lucky to hear
'Dance the Night Away' by VH.... It was all Crap Pop.
Aldo Nova's first song sounded good...the Guitar was way in the back.. the mix.
First I heard it was an Old Marshall... then I heard it was a SS Gibson, the ones they made in the mid 70's.
Anyway ... I was was way deprived back then.
I always like Vito Bratta's sound on that first Disc... I wish I could get rid of the vocalist
and his lyrics.

Ah man, I loved "Dance the Night Away" it showed a melody side of VH. It was a good song with mass appeal. Lots of Eddies stuff sounded like somebody cramming 100 lbs of potatos into a 50 pound sack. I was happy to see them serve the song instead of the ego. Anyway good stuff.
