BARFLY – No Place Like Home [1991 Unreleased / Aqua Net Records remaster] (2023) *EXCLUSIVE*
This one should be one of the biggest rarity among rarities: the New York 5-piece melodic hard rockers BARFLY unreleased album “No Place Like Home”. BARFLY was formed in the late ’80s by lead guitarist Nick Bowcott when Grim Reaper broke up. Including renowned musicians from ex Spread Eagle and Big Mouth members, BARFLY developed a potent and melodic rocking sound and got signed by major label RCA.
Produced & mixed by top cats Jack Ponti & Michael Wagener, their debut album “No Place Like Home” was ready at the end of 1990, promotion and merchandising in the making, but inexplicably the release was shelved. Only few promotional / testing cassettes were distributed, and since then “No Place Like Home” remains into obscurity, with bootleg cassettes being traded among fans.
Check out a sample here (not remastered):
Now 2023 finally Canadian label Aqua Net Records is releasing a remastered version of this fine slice of classic early 90s American melodic hard rock, a silver pressed CD limited to 300 copies.
Quality here is all over the place, a killer mix of Danger Danger, Hurricane, first Damn Yankees, Warrant, etc.
Terrific stuff, collector’s item. (contributors get the album immediately)
