Profile Wild Childhood’s insanely rare self-titled album came out in 1997 through Oar Fin Records, is one of the top indies that collectors search forever for, an essential rarity for your collection. The band hailed from Iowa and plays Hair Metal/Hard Rock, polished mix of 10 stunning tracks, ranging from anthems, to ballads, to rockers. Has a Southern feel in spots, similar to Bad Angels, and Saddle Tramp while a true standing is the 1979 cover of Billy Thorpe’s “Children of the Sun” while they open for many bands like Blue Oyster Cult among others. The fun starts at the opening track “Take me” which is a killer Melodic Rock anthem, with layered harmonies on the chorus. The bluesy “Sweet Lovin” and the anthemic “Set me Free” and “Dreamers and Lovers” and the party rocker “Stick it to ya” are a few examples of some stunning tracks.
