Cheap Trick - 1977 Cheap Trick
It's Cheap Trick's self titled debut, the 'granddaddy' of all American power pop records, that set the stage for a stellar career.

Cheap Trick - 1980 All Shook Up
Considering the Beatles were a major influence on the band, it seemed fitting to have George Martin at the helm production wise. While this didn't result in huge album sales, the overall consistency represented on 'All Shook Up' is nothing short of a power pop classic!!

Cheap Trick - 1982 One On One
I'd stop well short of proclaiming this as the bands best, but I think it ranks well with the best of their work to be honest. It's far more inspired than the letdown that was 'Next Position Please', an album with none of the energy infused by the band here.

Cheap Trick - 1983 Next Position Please
With 'Next Position Please' the songwriting is stronger and generally more melodic and appealing, but the awful production from Todd Rundgren proved ruinous.

Cheap Trick - 1985 Standing On The Edge
'Standing On The Edge' was something of a beacon in the dark as well, returning Cheap Trick to the top 40 album charts after the commercially disasterous (but very good) 'Next Position Please' album.

Cheap Trick - 1986 The Doctor
Suffice to say that the resulting album is dismissed to this day as Cheap Trick's worst effort ever. My point of view may prove controversial but I think summation is rubbish. Yes the hi-tech overload did hurt the production but plenty of fine mid 80's AOR remains.

Cheap Trick - 1988 Lap Of Luxury
After the disappointment of 1986's 'The Doctor', Cheap Trick are high on the rebound with 1988's 'Lap Of Luxury', going double platinum and yielding four hits.

Cheap Trick - 1990 Busted
Despite it's obvious AOR qualities, 'Busted' did not live up to the commercial success achieved by 'Lap Of Luxury'.

Cheap Trick - 2006 Rockford
A welcome return in 2006 for Rockford Illinois' favorite sons Cheap Trick, with their new album called 'Rockford'.. What the..?

Cheap Trick - 2009 The Latest
Cheap Trick can now be considered the god fathers of the power pop genre. I wouldn't call them elder statesmen or grandfathers.. that would be way too uncool for Robin, Rick, Tom and Bun.

Cheap Trick - 2016 Bang, Zoom, Crazy.. Hello
These guys have just been voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. And just as they celebrate their big award, the band turn up to the dance with a brand new album to boot.

The Essential Series - 2017 US Hard Rock (Volume 1) by Dtabachn
The early days of American Hard Rock produced some classic LP's. Here's ten of the best as cherry-picked by Dave Tabachnik. And it's only Volume 1, with more to come..
