In 1985 Pretty Maids played the Hammersmith Odeon (September 18th to be precise) as support to British NWOBHM heroes Saxon. The tour on the back of their debut Red Hot & Heavy album promised a return to the UK shortly. To your average Danish hard rock band, shortly equates to 28 years at least for London anyways.
The booklet is enjoyable, with an interesting article about the band and the near-fatal car accident that occurred between albums, a couple of rare photos and also a scan of the band’s original press sheet… All great little things for fans to look over.
The record is a true staple of the genre and here you won’t be short to find any no heavy hitters, if melody is you thing you will find a bunch of great tunes like the infectious bridge chorus of “Carrie Anne”, along with the powerhouse vocals of Ousey on the high riser “Don’t Cast Your Shadow”.
