by Night Ranger
Released: Jan 1982
The AOR staple's first record is highlighted by opener "Don't Tell Me You Love Me," closer "Night Ranger" and "Eddie's Comin' Out Tonight," which unfortunately is not about the Iron Maiden cover girl. Instead the song's about a dude "in tight trousers" who likes to "rock all night." Since this record came out in 1982, you can have one guess as to just what it was that gave Eddie the energy to rock all night. Anyway, folks looking to trace the roots of the hair metal epidemic that came along in the '80s should not miss this early entry.
