Profile This great Springfield , Ohio based band released a limited edition LP in 1980 that topped many vinyl collectors want lists worldwide for decades.  The album recorded and mixed in 1980 at Fifth Floor Recording Studios, Cincinatti OH, engineered and mixed by Gary Platt and Greg McNeily and produced by Gary Platt and Scram. 

This talented quintet’s brand of melodic arena rock mixed with flourishes of southern rock, earned them quite a following back in the day in Ohio where even TOTO refused to be upstaged by them at a concert in their hometown and insisted Scram NOT play!!!

Songs stand out from the album is the radio friendly “That’s The Way It Goes”, the straight ahead rockin’ tune “Street Rat Shuffle”, the mid tempo “Sunday Dinner’ with great keys overplay and the closing song “Mirror Minds’ with some really great and impressive harmony melodies. If you are fan of the late 70s outfits like Fortnox, Head East, April Wine, Bad Company, Fortress, Mayday, Riggs, Nantucket , .38 Special, Grinderswitch, Blackfoot, Black Oak Arkansas and Led Zeppelin, you should own this record!!!
