Axe - 1979 Axe
After having annoyed the mid-west press everywhere between Minneapolis and Milwaukee, the band Babyface skulked into hiding, and popped their heads up in Florida the following year in search of inspiration, insight, and a record deal. Axe became their moniker and a harder form of rock became their calling. Having heard Babyface, it's staggering the change in quality over the two year period.

Axe - 1980 Living On The Edge
'Living On The Edge' is a super album, their second and last for MCA.

Axe - 1982 Offering
It was at this point that American rockers Axe decided to try a few new things. Firstly, a harder-edged direction, a slight contrast from their two MCA recordings from 19729 and 1980. And secondly, a new label to help them through this transition. Though the music is still melodic rock primed for 80's AOR format radio, there's a bit more sting in the tail. 'Less pomp and more guitar' as an old review of 'Offering' mentioned back in 1982.

Axe - 1983 Nemesis
'Nemesis' sound continued the likeable combination of vague boogie mixed with wholesome AOR.

Axe - 1996 Five
By the mid 70's, Bobby Barth had resettled in Colorado where he had studio and retail business interests. Encouraged to reboot Axe back into life, 'Five' was the album to restart the engines.

Axe - 2000 The Crown
The 21st century offering from age-old rockers Axe.

Axe - 2001 Interview with Bobby Barth
Bobby Barth talks with Lee Bradfield about Axe's recent Euro tour during 2001.

Barth, Bobby - 1986 Two Hearts One Beat
The sound here is similar to mid 80's Starship mainly. As a result, 'Two Hearts One Beat' is very commercial lightweight AOR, quite a bit different from Barth's years with Axe.
