Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Starz - Violation Violation
Pop New - LP SW 11617 Capitol
Sealed 1977 Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. File Alongside Kiss And Angel. Starz' Sophomore Album, Violation, Was Quite Similar To Its Predecessor. Jack Douglas Was Still The Band's Producer, And Starz Continued To Favor The Type Of Slick, Commercial Hard Rock That Would Be Called Pop-Metal In The '80s And Early '90s. This 1977 LP Didn't Establish Starz As Major Players In The Pop-Metal Field; The New Yorkers Did Have A Small Following, Although Not A Huge One. Nonetheless, This Is An Enjoyable Record. It Doesn't Contain Any Pop-Metal Masterpieces Like Kiss' "Shout It Out Loud" Or Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz," But Tracks Like "Cherry Baby" And "Rock Six Times" Are Certainly Decent. Most Of The Time, Starz Vocalist Michael Lee Smith Sings About The Same Things That Kiss And Sweet Were Singing About In The '70s; Namely, All-Night Parties And Wild Young Women In Tight Dresses. Starz's Lyrics, As A Rule, Were Meant To Be Fun, Not Profound, And While Violation Didn't Go Down In History As One Of Pop-Metal's All-Time Classics, It's Worth Hearing If You're A Fan Of The Style.” – Alex Henderson, All Music Guide... more details
 
Starz - Attention Shoppers! Attention Shoppers!
Pop New - LP ST 11730 Capitol
Sealed 1978 Original. COH. Top Centre Seam Crack, Hence Price. Arguably, Pop-Metal Is A Form Of Power Pop, Or, At The Very Least, The Two Have Some Things In Common. Like The Raspberries, The Go-Go's, Or Blondie, A Pop-Metal Act Will Typically Blend Rockin', Guitar-Powered Aggression With Pop Sensibilities. Cheap Trick And Sweet, In Fact, Are Perfect Examples Of Bands That Are Relevant To Both Pop-Metal And Power Pop. So It Seemed Logical When Starz Provided A Big Dose Of Outright Power Pop On Its Third Album, Attention Shoppers!. The Band Didn't Eliminate The Pop-Metal Factor On This 1978 LP; "X-Ray Spex" And "Good Ale We Seek," For Example, Are The Type Of Pop-Minded Hard Rock Items That One Expected From Starz. But Tunes Like "I'll Be There," "She" (Not To Be Confused With The Kiss Favorite), And "Hold On To The Night" Are Power Pop Ditties That Wouldn't Have Been Out Of Place At A Raspberries Session; This Isn't To Say That Attention Shoppers! Is In A Class With The Raspberries' Best Work. Starz's Third Album Isn't A Masterpiece, But It's Competent And Enjoyable. Further, Starz Deserves Credit For Trying Something Different And Not Turning This LP Into A Carbon Copy Of Starz Or Violation.” - Alex Henderson, All Music Guide... more details
