1991, Kane Roberts - Saints And Sinners, cassette

Cassette Tuesday we talk about Kane Roberts second album
"Saints And Sinners". 

Kane Roberts became well known as the Rambo guitarist on Alice Cooper's
return into music on his "Constrictor" and "Raise Your Fist And Yell" albums.
Kane was Alice's right hand man during those times who co-wrote most the songs w/ Alice.
Kane also toured w/ Alice on those two albums w/ his flame thrower guitar.
This second recording by Kane Roberts is more AOR friendly.
You can also compare the music to Roberts photo on the cover. 
He's more slim down and not as bulky or loaded w/ steroids as he appeared on his debut release.
If you heard Kane's debut self titled album it was more like
Alice Cooper's "Constrictor" album. Both heavy guitars and
drums along w/ Rambo style lyrics. This second recording of
"Saints And Sinners" is like the sister album to
Alice Cooper's "Trash" recording. Both w/ the production
of Desmond Child unfortunately not as popular as 
Alice's "Trash" album that produced the hit "Poison". 
On Kane's cassette is a stamp that is promoting "Twisted" (Youtube at bottom of page)
in big letters which is the only pretty heavy song on this recording.
Other titles "Dance Little Sister" which is also noted 
on the cover stamp along w/ "Does Anybody Really Fall In Love Anymore?"
written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora that Cher covered earlier in '89.
On Kane's recording Desmond Child is listed as Executive Producer
and Sir Arthur Payson as Producer.
