Picks and Pans Review: No More Lonely Nights
They are hard to categorize, falling somewhere between California and Texas rock. New Mexico rock, maybe? Anyway this new group is vigorous, witty and versatile. If it sounds like a harder-edged version of the Eagles, it's not surprising. Glenn Frey and Don Henley of that band and one of Blue Steel's lead guitarists, Richard Bowden, all played backup for Linda Ronstadt. The other Steel lead, Leonard Arnold, worked with Jerry Jeff Walker, and rhythm guitarist Howard Burke toured with Warren Zevon; hence the group's eclectic style. The results on this album include some no-nonsense rock—No More Lonely Nights, Shark—as well as a token tokin' song, Twist One Up, and an Arnold tune that includes the felicitous line: "Down in Texas there's a sayin': Where there's a Willie there's a Waylon."
