Fully Remastered Audio shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / Includes 'Edge Of A Broken Heart', 'Cryin', 'Hell Raisers' / Six bonus tracks / 12 page full colour booklet - 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork and new interviews. WHEN VIXEN first appeared on the scene it's not an exaggeration to say that a lot of rock fans were amazed by the fact that they were an all-female band. Heavy rock had been almost an entirely male dominated occupation, apart from a few notable exceptions, so Vixen were seen by a number of people as a curiosity. Surely they couldn't be good enough to compete with the rock giants of the day? Well, think again! A potent four piece, the band originated in St Paul, Minnesota in the early '80s. They moved their base of operation to Los Angeles in 1985, where they completed their line-up and attracted industry attention. With major management in place they quickly secured an enviable record deal with Capitol Records spin off label EMI Manhattan. Recording their album with a number of major producers, the band crafted an album of superb melodic hard rock. They also involved a number of more seasoned writers, including Richard Marx, Jeff Paris and Jon Butcher, lending even more credence to the results. Spearheaded by a trio of killer songs, including the Richard Marx/Fee Waybill written first single 'Edge Of A Broken Heart', the album signalled a real and credible attempt to establish the band as contenders. 'Cryin' and 'I Want You To Rock Me' added further proof - if proof were even necessary - to the theory, that Vixen could easily compete in any field of musicians. Their subsequent touring schedule further cemented their reputation and demonstrated their no nonsense, give it everything, approach to their music. In fact, the album was eventually certified gold - a fitting tribute to their talent and self-belief.
