    Default Does anyone have the 2 Private life albums?

    I've only got the CD single of "Last heartbeat". Does anyone have the self titled album, and the follow up "Shadows"? In the VH encycolopedia, theres no listing of the members either. Does anyone know the names of the band members?

    I saw Private Life when they opened for Van Halen in 1988 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, NY.

    They were horrible. Not worth the CD is recorded on if you find it. IMO

    I've got the self titled disc. It's proof that not everything Edward touches turns to gold.

    I've got 'em both. Meh. I liked them a bit when they were released but not so much anymore. Good, talented band but their material was pretty shoddy.

    PRIVATE LIFE - SHADOWS (1988, WARNER BROS)
    Kelly Breznik - vocals
    Danny Johnson - guitars
    Jennifer Blakeman - keyboards
    Jay Davis - bass
    Lenny Campanaro - drums

    Background
    Quite a lovely slice of AOR from this Los Angeles quintet, with a mix of male and female, plus established personnel plus not so well known. The band apparently got their break after being witnessed by actress Valerie Bertinelli, she was so enarmored with the band, she got her husband Eddie Van Halen involved. So it was that Warner Bros too became involved, giving the band a home, with Ted Templeman and Van Halen doing the production honors.

    The Songs
    Of the established players, Johnson had just come off a stint playing with Alcatrazz (refer their 'Dangerous Games' album), Both he and Jay Davis were previously with 70's rockers Axis, plus they did a stint together in Joe Cerisano's Silver Condor. Meanwhile Blakeman had moved west to LA from Louisiana to further her music career. However, the star of the show is vocal princess Kelly Breznik, who really does have an incredible voice, and who fits the bill perfectly for the type of music that Private Life play, which is radio friendly melodic rock/AOR. Altogether, a soaring voice combined with power and control. We are not lacking for anything of the ten tracks on offer here. My personal favorites include the album opener 'Put Out The Fire', the surging relentlessness of 'Last Heartbeat' and the vivid melodies of 'Spirit Free'. However, the others aren't far behind either, including the punchy 'Hold On', the hard rocking 'Runnin The Race' or the AOR freefall that is 'Don't Blame It On Love'.

    In Summary
    Overall it's a pretty complete AOR album, and has few weaknesses on it. The stellar vocals of Ms Breznik make it a compelling listen. On the other hand, their follow up album (a self titled one at that) from 1990 was a little disappointing, and doesn't quite reach the heights of 'Shadows'. Stick with this one instead..

    Track Listing:
    01 Put Out The Fire
    02 Last Heartbeat
    03 Don't Blame It On Love
    04 Don't Let Go
    05 Rockabye Angel
    06 Spirit Free
    07 Hold On
    08 Runnin' The Race
    09 Spider
    10 Amazing Grace

    SELF-TITLED Second Album (1990 - Warner Bros.)

    Jennifer Blakeman keyboards, backing vocals
    Kelly Breznik vocals
    Chris Frazier drums, backing vocals
    Danny Johnson guitars, backing vocals
    Steve Kershisnik bass, backing vocals

    Eddie Van Halen producer

    Track Listing:
    1. Touch Me
    2. Domino
    3. Fallin' Apart
    4. Communication
    5. Night All Night
    6. Nothin' To Lose
    7. Give It Up
    8. Holiday
    9. Cure For Love

    I bought the first one and still have that cassette somewhere.
    Not a bad listen while your doing housework and shit like that. Its typical 80's stuff, but not horrible.
    The 2 chicks were pretty hot, especially the singer Kelly.

    I pulled out the cassette when I realized my car had a cassette player....lol. anyway the first song is called "touch me" and I'm 99% sure that cassandra from wayne's world does a version of it in one of the wayne's world movies but it's not on either soundtrack...right when I heard it start cassandra popped in my head singing it...it starts "ain't got no reason for reaction"....I think it's in the first movie when she's performing in the club...that's one hot asian chick right there...yowza!
