Plenty of times..if the band featured "unknown" members or just those I didn't know of, I would look at the label they were on, who produced/mixed it, their management team etc. It was usually an indication that it was good if there was some "clout" behind it.

There was however plenty of stinkers that fell into this category to. I remember everyone saying there was this band from Sweden, the next AC/DC..better than AC/DC (circa 1986). Atlantic had signed them, Max Norman produced them..it was, no pun..TRASH. It was basically that time in the 80's, when every label wanted to have their own AC/DC, DEF LEP, SCORPS etc, and in truth, a lot of these soundalike were second rate cannon fodder.

But yes, there were many surprised on gut instinct, WINGER'S debut being one, Lillian Axe another..I didn't buy theses as they featured known people from elsewhere..they were all new bands to me.
