This concludes my AOR/HARD&HEAVY "later" pile. Unless there is something still hiding among the other piles more fitting to be included here (in which case, "later" I'll circle back to end it), I'm over the hump. Indeed, I have more AOR/HARD&HEAVY CDs than all the other genres combined together, and it only took me... What? Almost two years to get here? Eh, doesn't matter. It's like opening a time capsule. Next week, it's up to another "later" pile to provide me with some "it was about time" listening pleasure.
The only one we have in common here is the Motorhead album.
I thought you had that Eddie Money.
I don't think so. I have a few of his albums since I've written about them in the Cassette Chronicles series, but I don't believe that is one of them.

Electric Light Orchestra—Discovery
Steve Vai—Sex & Religion
David Bowie—Black Tie White Noise
Boston—Don't Look Back
