1989, Melissa Etheridge - Brave And Crazy, cassette

Cassette Tuesday introduces American singer-songwriter
Melissa Etheridge "Brave And Crazy", 1989, cassette.

This was Melissa's second album and was the one
that caught my attention on VH1. Listening to Melissa you can't help
but think of Janis Joplin a bit and her influence as well as a fan
of Bruce Springsteen. I liked quite a few of the songs from 
"Brave And Crazy" recordings. The singles released 
were "No Souvenirs", "The Angels", and "Let Me Go".
I did buy a few more of her recordings after this release.

1986, Billy Idol - Whiplash Smile, cassette

This Cassette Tuesday we go with 1986
Billy Idol "Whiplash Smile", cassette.

"Whiplash Smile" is Idol's third album well fourth if you count "Vital Idol" which came out 
in '85 in the U.K. but '87 in the US. "Vital Idol" was remixes of Idol's first 3 albums. 
So "Whiplash Smile" is officially the third original music album. This came right after Idol's big hit 
"Rebel Yell" album release. So it was a hard act to follow. 
It's funny I don't remember how I received this cassette. Maybe at a collectables show
or in a bargain bin at a record store. It could of been given to me from a friend who
was moving at the time and handed me a few cassettes. I know it was used.
"To Be A Lover" was the big hit but I read that "Sweet Sixteen" and "Don't Need A Gun"
are 2 more singles. Honestly I never heard those last 2 songs on the radio or MTV.
Steve Stevens is still w/ Billy on this recording. Not much I can say about this cassette but a
few good tracks. Band credit bass player John Regan
who a year later would join Ace Frehley's Comet
