Profile Point Blank is an American rock and roll band hailing from Texas. The band formed in 1974 and recorded six albums between 1976 and 1982. In 1981 they released their fifth album, American Exce$$, which included the song “Nicole”. With strong air-play on AOR radio stations the track reached No. 20 on Billboard Magazine’s Rock Tracks chart. Subsequently, “Nicole” was also released as a 45 RPM single and peaked inside the Top 40, at No. 39 on Billboard’s Hot 100. In their heyday, they were known for their relentless touring, sometimes playing more than 200 shows per year. 

The album has great production for the era and another minor radio song, “Let Me Stay With You Tonight”. The band moved more into a AOR direction which kind of got away from the southern rock formula of the first four albums. This album contains the Best from “Point Blank” you won’t be disappointed. If your a fan, you already know, if your not “give em a go”!!! You soon will be!!!
