Profile  Obscure Austin Texas band with the rare single-sided press mini album released in 1986 and produced by John Viehweg (Southern Discomfort, Zeitgeist). The band play some killer hard rock/aor tunes with emphasis in the strong guitar riffs and lots of harmony backing vocals and definetely with a better production will have a better faith. In any case this rarity worth your attention.

Profile Hyper rare female fronted album from this Seattle based melodic rock outfit released in 1986 through Rain Records, cross between melodic rock and pop sounding like Annica, Saraya, Shanghai and Chacko having nice keys and great vocals, but the album could be more consistent as there are quite a few fillers.

Profile Rare melodic rock released came out in 1992 from Big Note Records in very limited copies and produced by Carsten Bohn. Don’t let the bizarre name throw you off from getting this brilliant AOR rarity! This band plays catchy, melodic AOR that’s packed keys. It reminds of bands like Dominoe and Daytona. The musicianship and production are outstanding.
