My 1986 Craaft S/T arrived from Czechoslovakia today. Another
CDR eliminated from my collection. :) Listening to the album
again for the first time in quite a long while, I'm forced
to reevaluate my initial impressions. When I had first heard
the album, I remember my take being one of "WAAAY too poppy",
but in retrospect I think that was because I was listening to
primarily stereotypical "hard rock" at the time, and it was
before I developed a taste for more melodic keyboard-driven AOR.

This album truly is a gem (not just from a rarity standpoint).
The opening track "I Wanna Look in Your Eyes" is a melodic
rock classic, and as far as power ballads go, "You're the
Best Thing in My Life" is quite strong as well.

Along with the Craaft S/T I also received the Pink Cream 69
EP "49 degrees/8 degrees" from 1991. Were there any other EPs
released besides this and "Mixery"? I think I have all the
Pink Cream 69 official releases now except for "Change", but
I've heard it, and while the completist in me screams out to
get it, I'm not about to pay more than about $5 for it: it's rather awful. It's horribly modern and alternative.
I don't know what possessed them to go that route on that

In the same package I *finally* got a copy of Vicious Rumors -
Soldiers of the Night (it really should NOT have been as tough
to find as I found it). I'm still looking for 2 Vicious Rumors
CDs to complete my discography if anyone has them for sale or
trade: "Plug in and Hang On" (1992), and "The Voice" (1994).

2 more Rough Silk discs have found their way into my collection;
I'm still looking for the following:

Circle of Pain
Wheels of Time (2 CD)
