An extra big thanks goes to my new friend, Chris for this album! This obscurity comes from New York based quintet, Bullseye. Though the band managed to create quite a stir in the business and even sparked a major bidding war for their first album, ultimately the hype did not translate into success when Columbia Records released this gem in 1979. The album was a curious amalgam of AOR and mainstream pop (not unlike 707 or Survivor), not fully committing itself to either extreme. The result is a fairly stable batch of songs featuring the charged vocals of Manny Demagistris, who brings ample charisma to the material here. The opening cut, "Treat Me Right" would be covered by Pat Benatar the following year. It's presumed the band split shortly after this release, which is a shame as the talent in the band was formidable. Drummer Alan Childs later worked with John Waite, David Bowie, Rod Stewart and Julian Lennon.
Download this excellent vinyl rip and listen to one of the true obscurities of the AOR movement!
