    TORONTO - 1983 - Girls night out









    TORONTO - 1982 - Get it on credit









    TORONTO - Head On (1981)





    01. Head On
    02. Silver Screen
    03. Still Talkin' 'bout Love
    04. Someone Will Play The Blues
    05. It Comes From You
    06. Enough Is Enough
    07. Master of Disguise
    08. Blackmail
    09. Come In A Flash

    A significant force on the 80s Canadian Rock scene. TORONTO, distinctively fronted by the double edged female team of vocalist Holly Woods and guitarist Sheron Alton, scored an impressive tally of hit singles in their homeland. Following the break up of the band in 1985 Woods and guitarist Brian Allen would land a huge global hit single courtesy of HEART who covered their co-written smash 'What About Love'.
    The band had been created in 1979 by the union of former ROSE members guitarist Brian Allen and drummer Jim Fox with singer Annie 'Holly' Woods and CENTAURUS bassist Nick Costello. The final ROSE album 'Judgment Day' had featured Woods as a guest vocalist on the track 'Johnny Law'.
    TORONTO's 1980 debut, titled 'Lookin' For Trouble' in Canada but issued in America simply as 'Toronto', produced by the CHILLIWACK duo of Brian Henderson and Brian McLeod, included a cover version of 'You Better Run', for which both KISS drummer PETER CRISS and much more significantly PAT BENATAR issued versions of the very same year. Overall the album made a keen impression on Rock fans with Woods gritty vocal delivery coming in for particular praise.
    The sophomore 1981 release 'Head On' was produced by Terry Brown and provided the launch platform the Gold single 'Enough Is Enough'. For their third effort 'Get It On Credit' TORONTO shifted direction into more of an Electronic Pop Rock vein. The album would signal the involvement of another new recruit- ex ROSE bassist and keyboard player Gary Lalonde.
    Another shift in personnel would be evident on the 1983 outing 'Girls Night Out' an all new rhythm section of ex NIGHTWINDS and MAX WEBSTER bassist Mike Gingrich and drummer Barry Conners was employed. The band's final 1985 outing 'Assault And Flattery' would employ Woods as virtually a solo artist. The band on this occasion comprised of Kreyer, Gingrich, guitarist Marty Walsh and drummer Paul Hanna.
    Lalonde would later come to prominence with HONEYMOON SUITE. Brian Allen would join Attic Records as an A&R executive. TORONTO attempted a reunion tour in 1997 but the effort was short lived.

    Los grupos con vocalista femenina nunca han sido lo mío y estos Toronto pese a tener algunos buenos temas nunca me han ido demasiado, no me parece que tengan ni un solo disco redondo. Curiosamente los descubrí en un cajón de ofertas en vinilo poreque me llamó la atención la portada del "Head on" que en un principio confundí con la del "Dancing undercover" de Ratt.
    El disco que más me gusta de ellos posiblemente sea "Get it on credit" aunque hace siglos que no los escucho.

    Bueno yo los descubrí casualmente tb, pensé que me llevaba para casa un single del "The Rhythm Of Life" de Jimmy Martin y va y resulta que me encuentro con el "Lookin For Trouble" de estos Toronto, hay que joderse... Razz  Pero bueno la compra no resultó para nada desaprovechable aunque cierto es que no es un disco que yo recomendaría, bueno ahora que sale todo gratis quizás si y es que por que por lo menos en ese y si te va el rollo Pat Benatar inicios... 3 o 4 temas buenos los hay, ("Even The Score", "Lookin For Trouble", "5035" y "Shot Down")  "Head On" es el peor de ellos con diferencia, del "Get It On Credit" solo se salvan las dos que luego irían a parar al "Livin In Fiction" de Fast Forward, y con "Girls Night Out" parece que levantan cabeza aunque previo peaje de sonar digamos mas comercial, ya el del 85 ni lo comento por que cuando se graba únicamente por exigencias del contrato sale lo que sale...

    En definitiva, 7 u 8 temas aprovechables (algunos guapos y todo) de medio centenar, demasiados discos editados para tan pobre bagaje, pero bueno esto va como va, hay otros que con porcentajes peores son casi que bandas de culto: Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen...study

    un verdadero placer leert amigo Raton!!

    lo unico q no coincido es en eso q comentas d los porcentajes d KISS ni d VAN HALEN, pues estos les dan unas cuantas vueltas a los TORONTO, apart q nada tienen q ver en estilo... solo un tema, D LOS FAMOSOS, d cualkiera d estas 2 super legendarias y miticas bandas , vale por toda la discografia d los canadienses..

    Pero q vamos, centrandonos en el grupo del post, opino como tu, lo q me xoko es q no ubiera ni un post d eyos...
