Robert Hazard and the Heroes

Robert Hazard and the Heroes were a really pretty good rock band from Philly, ca. early 1980's, Robert Hazard is best known for composing "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", which was of course made into a big hit by Cindy Lauper......this is a good overview of a career that, while interesting, seems to be one of those "local legends" (In Philly, this one)........really good tunes here, LOTS of em, check out some more of that good 1980's stuff on the cool tracks ala "Change Reaction" and "Escalator of Life", among several others, this album basically summarizes thier career, but TRUST ME, it's worth it.......a great and overloked, underappreciated album, I think some of you may just LOVE this one as much as I do!

  2. Another amazing 80's gem...I've died and gone to heaven (make that Heaven 17)!

  3. What a fabulous pull! Well played indeed, sir. Thank you.

  4. Great stuff. Used to listen to that when I was a kid with the other Philly band, The Hooters.

  5. Finally. I have been searching for this for a long time. All the other copies I found were poor acetate transfers. But obviously good stuff, since the acetate was so full of pops and scratches.
