HARLOT – Positively Downtown [Digitally Remastered +2] (2021) HQ
While HARLOT was pretty close to signing a deal with major label Atlantic at the end of the 80s, however good luck wasn’t by their side. The band managed to record an album in the early ’90s, released by themselves on cassette.
Now the original tapes have been remastered and “Positively Downtown” is being officially released on CD for the first time today, with the addition of two previously unreleased tracks and refreshed artwork.
This is well written & recorded classic late ’80s melodic hard rock / hair metal plenty of catchy melodies, melodic vocals and sweet riffs, kinda Poison meets Babylon A.D.
