This CD is filled with some great blues filled hard rock. Sadly, this music didn’t fit into the music scene at the time.
Like many of the bands of late 80’s early 90’s era, The War Babies didn’t fit into the grunge scene and disappeared as fast as they showed up. They had minor success with the song Hang Me Up. It received some airplay on MTV, and Z-Rock.
The stand out songs on this disc are Hang Me Up, the acoustic based Cry Yourself To Sleep, the Aerosmith inspired Sweetwater, my personal favorite, Blue Tomorrow and the rocking Satellite.
The War Babies are a band that will likely appeal to fans of Aerosmith, Thunder, Asphalt Ballet and Saigon Kick.
This disc has been out of print for a while. You can find some cheap used copies on EBay and at Amazon.com. It is worth grabbing if you can find it. Happy Hunting!
