Hey, Folks a few days back I went on about that little Helix 4 song LP. I thought it would be cool to feature a few more of these EP’s that I have scooped along the way. Growing up, I could never grab these as between buying records/magazines the dollar and cents could only be stretched so far. So now if I see these for a decent price, I like to pick them up and shoot Ladano a message to see if he has ever seen or heard some of these. So anyways sit back, enjoy and Bang Your Head! (I admit that was goofy, but I gotta keep the hype machine moving!)
Quiet Riot in 1983/84 was big news as there album Metal Health was everywhere! Videos being played and songs being played! All of us in that year in high school when this dropped onto the store shelves bought this, and it’s one of the few metal albums that had crossover appeal to non-metallers!
So with the albums two biggest singles why not tack on two non-single live tracks and strike while the iron is hot! That’s what QR did!
Metal Heath(the single) and Cum on Feel the Noize (the real big single) are the selling feature of this EP I’m sure back in 83/84! QR or the powers that be at the record company knew to put something different on and these two live tracks have QR rocking to the masses back on that night on June 4th, 1983!
Love’s A Bitch is a great track that slowly cruises along until the chorus lifts off!
Let’s Go Crazy rocks right out of the gate and prop’s to Frankie Banali who smacks two huge gong smashes one at the beginning of the tune and the second gong smash a roo towards the end!
That’s a rock song, folks!
