Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Having just reviewed The Knack's break-through 1979 LP 'Get The Knack', we think it's about time to look at another debut from that year: Pat Benatar's wonderful 'In The Heat Of The Night'. As we know, Benatar became one of the leading female pop/rock performers of the 80's, nestled easily among the likes of Madonna and Cyndi Lauper. Prior to signing with Chrysalis, Pat had been involved with theatre, and various talent clubs from Virginia to New York. After a string of impressive performances in clubs through New York City, the label stepped up, and wth a handful of co-writes on the debut album (which we'll go through), 'In The Heat Of The Night' was released in August of 1979, and soon moved up the charts, establishing Benatar as a star on the rise.

The Songs
Coupled with a big booming voice, a smart production team of Mike Chapman (The Knack, Blondie, The Sweet) and Peter Coleman, plus a selection of well chosen songs, the album became the next big thing during the sweep of 1979 into 1980. Looking back now, it's amazing to see how many well remembered songs are sourced from this album. Obvious stand-outs include the rousing 'Heartbreaker', the John Cougar cover 'I Need A Lover', 'If You Think You Know How To Love Me' and 'We Live For Love'. Some other interesting inclusions were the Alan Parsons Project cover 'Don't Let It Show' (from 'I Robot'), the Sweet cover 'No You Don't' plus a Nick Gilder tune 'Rated X'.

In Summary
As expected, the album went Platinum in 1980, and later that year, She would return with her biggest selling album 'Crimes Of Passion' which included another three hit singles: 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot', 'Treat Me Right' and 'You Better Run'. Obviously, Chrysalis were onto a good thing here, and the hits kept coming all through the 80's decade.

I never cared for this woman's output. The leotard and high heel thing back then was so overdone by every NY disco queen in 1979 and too much of her material was written by other people which says a lot. No thanks.

I loved this record and it's still in my favourite tip 20 records of all-time. Been a Pat fan since the day this was released. The only album I couldn't take to at the time was 'Tropico'. Her autobiography is great and goes a long way in explaining how the record company were responsible for a lot of the things that turned people like yourself away from her Eric.

Expect to see a few more articles of Pat in the future. She is synonymous of the type of music that is mostly reviewed here.

To her credit she did do a decent cover of the Kate Bush classic 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Shadows of the Night' was OK, mostly attributed to Giraldo's shimmering guitar work but I'll check out the book Dave.
