The 2nd track of this weeks show is “Action” from The Sweet. Everyone knows these guys for “Ballroom Blitz” and maybe “Fox On The Run”. For artists like Motley Crue and Billy Idol’s Steve Steven’s these guys had a huge impact. The Sweet were one of the bands that came out of the glam movement of the early 70’s, and as you dig into some of their material you see how great of straight up rock band they really were. Great riffs, lots of swing and swagger, and some incredible layered harmony vocals.
This one is a cut that has been covered many times, and this video clip is a TV promo from 1975. Enjoy!

The song that this new episode gets its title from is Kiss’ “Love Her All I Can”, from their 3rd LP Dressed To Kill. This is one of those fun album tracks that Kiss fans have carried with them since 1975. Anthrax did a great cover of this song, featuring Gene and Paul singing the harmonies during the verses during the Sound Of White Noise sessions, you could find it as a b-side to their single “Black Lodge”.
This is a song that dates back to Gene and Paul’s pre-Kiss days, from their band Wicked Lester. Wicked Lester recorded a full length LP that was never officially released. Thanks to the internet and YouTube most of the material that was on that album can be found online.
Here is Wicked Lester’s version of what became a Kiss album classic, “Love Her All I Can”.

Here we are, Episode Lucky 13! Already a week into August, and we have lots of cool new music for you this week. Classic Rock Magazine helped out in a big way this week. Their new issue features Black Sabbath on the cover, and the sampler that comes with it is chuck full of great new bands, some of them don’t even have albums out yet, just a few singles. I dig into that group of bands this week, and much much more.
Hour 1 – We start in grand fashion with a classic from the Cult “Wild Flower” from their Electric album, followed by a track from Kiss’ Dressed To Kill. We have new music from The Pat Travers Band, he has a new CD out called CAN DO, as well as a new live album, Pat has found his 70’s roots again, and this new CD shows just how strong he still is. We wrap the hour with Whitesnake, and the 1980 live version of “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City”.
Hour 2 – Lots of new music in this hour from Voodoo Six, Todd Kerns, Kadavar, Love And A .38, and StoneRider! I go in to the lost classics for tracks from Vandenberg, The James Gang, Hurricane, and ZZ Top as well.
Hour 3 – You can never go wrong with anything from the band Scorpion Child, so we start the hour with “Kings Highway” off of their self titled release. I have another new tune from Alice In Chains in this hour, as well as new music from Screaming Eagles and Monster Truck. We wind the hour down with Aerosmith and their cover of “Shakey Ground” from the Temptations. And to finish the show this week we play a little Doors, as we remember Ray Manzarek who passed away recently.

The Scorpions formed in 1965 in Germany, Rudolph Schenker started this little band, and after a few key member changes the band landed a deal and released their first album, the very unique Lonesome Crow. As their sound evolved over the next few albums the sound that we know as the Scorpions today, and then they finally broke through in the US in 1979 with the Lovedrive release.
In 1989 they released the album Crazy World, and conquered the then uncharted territory of Russia, and headlined the Moscow Music Peace Festival. They continued to make albums and tour up until this past year when the band decided it was time to retire. The Scorpions were always one of my favorite live bands that I ever had the chance to see, and I didn’t get to see them until the late 90’s.
They have 40 years of incredible songs, all of which you should take the time to explore a bit. It is sad that they have stepped out of the limelight, and I hope they receive the recognition that they deserve as one of the greatest rock acts of all time.
