LaBarge - 1984 Bargin' In
Here's a guy who it seems has been around in the Canadian music scene forever. It wasn't until 1984 among all his other commitments, that LaBarge was able to release his first solo album 'Bargin' In'. On this album, Bernie is locked into the 1984 groove, and moving in the same circles as fellow Canuck Stan Meissner and the late Van Stephenson.

Ringleader - 1989 If Licks Could Kill
With many 80's influences thrown into the ring (excuse the pun), Ringleader by default gravitate towards the heavier end of the spectrum, and comparisons are made to bands of that era. To my ears, they are musically similar to Billy Squier 'Don't Say No' era, though a tad heavier. Big drums, and churning rhythm guitars in particular.

Simon Chase - 1988 Thrill Of The Chase
Another AOR act from Canada, featuring the duo of Anthony Michaels and guitar virtuoso Sil Simone. In retrospect, I think this album needs to stay in the eighties, and one needs to put a reality check on it..
