Harlow - Harlow (1990)
Line-up: Teresa Straley (vocals), Tommy Thayer (guitars), Todd Jensen (bass), Steven Klong (drums), Pat Regan (keyboards)
Don't Say We're Over
When You Love Someone
Edge of Love
comment: This one-and-done band offer some good female-fronted hard rock/AOR. Singer Teresa Straley sounds a lot like Ann Wilson from Heart, and behind her is a band made up of some pretty kickass session musicians. Guitarist Tommy Thayer was in Black n Blue and is of course now the man behind the Spaceman make-up in KISS. Keyboardist Pat Regan has played with everyone from Doro to KISS and Graham Bonnet. Bassist Todd Jensen played with Regan in a few of those bands and was also in the awesome Hardline (see their album that I posted on here recently). In terms of sound, it's hard not to hear a Led Zeppelin influence on Harlow, only less bluesy and more AORish. Check it out!
