Label: Legacy Recordings
This misleadingly named North Carolina band's 1979 album opens with and names itself after a 1976 AC/DC classic. Then there's new wave-hinting hard pop caught between Nazareth and Loverboy, saxes honked and smooth-jazzed, squealy synths, reggae riddims, Southern frat-party beach soul, hard-guy machismo with lovelorn yacht harmonies, a Kix-bubbly AC/DC rip with boogie-woogie piano ("Rugburn"), a music-biz speed-stutter called "Media Darlin'," and a finger-snappy brown-nose of rock radio. Finales: an endearingly dorky semi-ballad ringing in the '80s, followed by a hidden a cappella freebie.
