Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive)
Used - LP - MCA-5111
Clean 1980 Original with insert. The Iron City Houserockers' album "Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive)" is a raw and energetic rock and roll record that captures the gritty essence of the band's hometown of Pittsburgh. With the help of Mick Ronson and Ian Hunter the album features driving rhythms and powerful guitar riffs that perfectly complement Joe Grushecky's soulful and passionate vocals. From the opening track "Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive)" to the closing "Rock Ola" the album is a non-stop party that celebrates the joys and struggles of working-class life. The standout track "Junior's Bar" is a haunting and heartfelt tribute to a local watering hole that served as a second home for many of the band's fans. "Have A Good Time (But Get Out Alive)" is a memory of a time and place and takes you back on each listen, if you are so lucky. more

Love's So Tough
New - LP - 3099
Sealed 1979 Original. Cut Out Hole. “The Houserockers' First Album, Originally Released In 1979, Sounds Like The Work Of A Great, Battle-Hardened Bar Band Who Is Still Learning How To Make Their Sound Work In The Studio. The Arrangements Suggest An Imaginative Cross Between Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band And The J. Geils Band's Early Period, And The Band Is Tight And Skillful Throughout. But The Production Is A Bit Flat, And The Sound Lacks The Presence And Punch This Material Needs. And While Joe Grushecky Would Mature Into A Top-Shelf Songwriter By The Time The Band Released Their Second Album, Most Of The Tunes On Love's So Tough Are Standard Issue Cars-And-Girls Stuff, Though The Two Numbers About The Sorry State Of Rock & Roll ("Heroes Are Hard To Find" And "I'm Lucky") Cut Deep, And "I Can't Take It" Kicks Things Off With A Bang. Even At It's Weakest Moments, Love's So Tough Burns With A Passion And Fire That Makes Clear The Iron City Houserockers Were True Believers In The Power Of Rock & Roll.” – Mark Deming, All Music Guide more
