MAMA'S BOYS Power And Passion
Gott Discs (2006)

Mamas Boys

This classic 1985 album on CD at last, hard powerful anthemic AOR from this Irish trio, the McManus brothers. Opener 'Hard'n'Loud' is classic if a touch cliché, while 'Straight Forward' adds some slide guitar and nods towards the Triumph power trio sound.

Power And Passion probably saw the band's musical and commercial highlight, with the band fragmenting in the late 80s with the addition of a vocalist and the drummer taking time out with leukaemia.

Sadly no extras but some informative sleevenotes make for a good release.
