Heirborn (Abba no #)(New Born NB 7019) 1979
A few echoes of The Way’s Can It Be can be found on this five-man Spokane, Washington band’s debut which dabbles with Southern, rural and honky-tonk rock with commendable results. Originally a custom press in a rather simple cover, the New Born label picked it up (NB 7019) and put a rainbow-and-clouds design behind the logo. Some of the ballads have that mellow soft jazz feel – a few less of those and a few more heavier rocking tracks like ‘Devil’s Friend’ and these guys might have ended up on New Born’s crank-it-up sister label Tunesmith. Still there’s enough middle-ground rock edge here to satisfy along with several admirable guitar leads. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
