Vick Lecar`s Blue Moon
Released: 2000, Record Heaven Music
Melodic hard rock is what Vick Lecar serves up on his latest CD "Blue Moon." This Texas native has surrounded himself with top notch musicians from various bands such as Freley's Comet, Slash's Snakepit, Rainbow, Warlock and Blue Oyster Cult.
Vick Lecar is the driving force of the band , his guitar playing reminding one of Ritcie Blackmore or a more relaxed Malmsteen. But the one in the driver's seat is Ed Terry. The guy has the voice of both Joe Lynn Turner and Glen Hughes all rolled into one. The songs seem to be just the right vehicle for his style of vocals. Any number of these songs could fit right in on any of the last couple of Rainbow albums from the Turner-era. "Take My Hand" would make a great single, "Son of A Witch" has a great groove w/some fine playing by Lecar and "Between Heaven And Hell" sports a fine chorus in the 70's/80's tradition. If you're a latter-day Rainbow fan, or just a fan of melodic hard rock in general, then this is one to add to your collection. For more info,check 'em out at: http://www.vicklecar.com
