Profile Danny Wilde was the founding member of the now-legendary power-pop band The Quick. Wilde then went on to form Great Buildings in 1981 and released an album. After the band’s demise Danny Wilde pursued a solo career. His first solo release in 1986, The Boyfriend, was very successful for Wilde, garnishing 2 pop singles “Isn’t It Enough” & “Body To Body”.

Danny Wilde’s first solo album featured a lineup that looks very much like that of the first Rembrandts album-with Phil Solem on guitar and Pat Mastelotto on drums. But the sound of The Boyfriend isn’t quite what a longtime Rembrandts fan might expect. While the album features solid songwriting and Wilde’s signature voice, The Boyfriend is a straightforward guitar rock album, and a pretty good one.

The first single, Isn’t It Enough, was a Top 20 rock radio hit, and would often be covered by live by Martina McBride and appeared Patty Smyth’s album ‘Never Enough’. The follow up, Body To Body also received heavy airplay from rock radio.

    One of my all time favourites plus follow up Any Mans Hunger. Usually like heavier rock stuff but these albums are great. 9.5 out of 10
