Robert Gordon made quite a name for himself in the late 70s and early 80s as a solo artist. ROBERT GORDON and Tuff Darts was a staple at CBGB's and Max's Kansas City in the early and mid-70s, part of the influx of groundbreaking bands of the era like The Ramones, Patti Smith, Television and Stiv Bators' Dead Boys.

The Darts opened several shows for The New York Dolls with Gordon at the microphone. Gordon fronted the band for one of their earlier recordings, "All for the Love of Rock 'n' Roll," and appears on vocals with the Darts on the "Live at CBGB's" compilation album released in 1976.

However, with his own solo aspirations Gordon left the group and went solo, soon becoming a staple on industry music magazines of the era like "Circus" and "Hit Parader." He seemed destined for stardom had not alcohol abuse slowed his rise.

In this 1984 release with mate CHRIS SPEDDING, it is easy to see that he was on a new course to carve out his own future.

This re-release is a limited edition of only 120 units on the rare and short lived ROAD HOUSE MUSIC label.
