Blue Steel - 1979 No More Lonely Nights

ARTIST: Blue Steel
ALBUM: No More Lonely Nights
LABEL: Infinity
YEAR: 1979


LINEUP: Leonard Arnold - guitars * Richard Bowden - guitars * Howard Burke - guitars * Marc Durham - bass * Mickey McGee - drums * Michael Huey - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 No More Lonely Nights * 02 Bulldog * 03 Guitar Song * 04 Baby You Can't Dance * 05 Twist One Up * 06 Shark * 07 I Should Be Sleeping * 08 Honey Dew * 09 Take Me * 10 Willy And Waylon * 11 Hoo Doo Voo Doo

What do we know about this lot? Not much. However, they are here for three reasons. They play a loose style of AOR (boogie I think is a better description), they appear on the Infinity Records label, and they are obscure. Compelling reasons don't you think? Based in Los Angeles, these guys were fairly good friends with artists like The Eagles and Jackson Browne, though their music didn't sound as west coast as those two. Described as lightweight boogie, I'd venture to suggest they are more 'well-rounded' than that, though they do have a southern slant, like the Danny Joe Brown Band or Creed (Asylum78) for instance.

The Songs
I do like the opening and title track. It's very AOR and very good, but seems out of place on a record like this. In this case they play in a similar style to labelmates Dixon House Band, but only on this one track. 'Bulldog' drops a hat at the door of Danny Joe Brown, while 'Guitar Song' is slightly more upbeat and as per the title.. 'guitar driven. The Dwight Twilley cover 'Shark' could pass for Bachman Turner Overdrive, while the following tune 'I Should Be Sleeping' has more than hint of Status Quo in the mix. If we look at the tribute 'Willie And Waylon', and you can imagine a combination of those two aforementioned bands playing some hazy bar in dixie territory, then you're on track.

In Summary
This is actually a reasonably interesting album for period seventies collectors, but it's not entirely essential either. As we all know, Infinity folded not long after, and the band were snapped up by Asylum Records, funnily enough the same home for The Eagles and Jackson Browne. In fact, they did tour as support to The Eagles during this period. They released a second set called 'Nothing But Time' before calling it day.
