DRAMA - Scene From A Distance (1985) [0dayrox own rip] full

Another long lost 80s album has been requested, never officially released on CD; American band DRAMA and their only album “Scene From A Distance” from 1985. There’s a bootleg circulating, but we had the chance to rip the LP by ourselves with great results.
This female-fronted radio-ready melodic rock band lead by the excellent Susanne Jerome Taylor – she did countless backing vocals as session musician – and her husband Pat Taylor, delivered here a wonderful slice of mid-Eighties magic, upbeat catchy songs to die for.
A great ’80s cult album.

A native Memphian, Susanne recorded her first single at age 19, “Light in the Long Run”, on Mercury Records. Joining her on the record were other native Memphians, Steve Cropper and Duck Dunn from the Stax era, along with the Pointer Sisters, singing backup.
Susanne spent years building a following in local venues in several groups. Later she teamed up with Pat Taylor, who was also a Mercury artist at the time. Shortly thereafter, Pat & Susanne got together and co-wrote the FM-100 theme song “Memphis I’m Coming Home to You” (My Radio’s Pickin’ Up FM100), which became a mainstay on the radio for three years running.

They soon put a band together with Rob & Russ Caudill and Tom Ward called THE BREAKS. They released an album on RCA Records and released two videos on MTV and VH-1, quickly rising to the top of the charts and staying there for over a year in the MidSouth.

Susanne & Pat went on to release this second LP under the name DRAMA, also on RCA Records. Shortly thereafter, they changed the name to ‘Susanne Jerome Taylor’, launching her as solo artist, released still another video and toured on. The 7” single from this album, the ballad ‘Why Did Forever Have To End’, already appeared under the ‘Susanne Jerome Taylor’ name alone, but it’s the same recording found here in the DRAMA album.
