THE HEAT – Untold Story Vol. II (Out Of Print)

THE HEAT - Untold Story Vol. II (Out Of Print) full

As requested, here’s all the complete recordings from Hays, Kansas based mid-Eighties melodic rockers THE HEAT. Seems the band was a sensation at the time, and while they never got a major label deal, the guys managed to put on tape a bunch of their songs only locally released / distributed. They were so good that even a couple of these tunes appeared into a movie soundtrack.
Untold Story Vol. II” is a collection of a somehow ‘lost’ band playing classic mid-Eighties US Melodic Rock / AOR ready for the radio, plenty of terrific melodies and choruses. And the best part of it: the sound quality / production is very good.
This is the actual CD (be aware there’s poor cassette versions floating around) fully remastered for your listening pleasure.

You can’t go wrong with songs like ”Brother To Brother’ (a HONEYMOON SUITE / BON JOVI crossroad), the sexy ”Hearts Like Mine” (akin BLACK N’ BLUE), the pompy AOR of ‘A Broken Heart’ (just love this song!) or the intensity of ‘Just Like The Rain’ (think first WINGER album).

A song recorded circa 1986 with the title ”When The Love Is Over”… yes this this AOR with an incredible mid-paced atmosphere… a winner!
Yes there’s more 80s thrill to ”Crimes Of The Heart’, huge harmonies to the proto hair metal of ”No More L.A. Nights”, and for an acoustic, campfire power ballad just play ”When I Fell’.

THE HEAT - Untold Story Vol. II (Out Of Print) disc

Why THE HEAT never got signed is beyond me… heck, this is pure mid-Eighties stuff ready for the radio and big arenas.
Lovers of classic, pompy, keyboard-filled / hook-laden Eighties AOR / Melodic Rock need to check these tunes as soon as possible.
As said, an actual CD version very hard to find (limited edition).
