This is a nice request to fill.
LaMarca was a project / band from American singer and composer Abe LaMarca, brained together with veteran producer, engineer, songwriter and guitar player Jeff Silverman (who also has worked and played with Rick Springfield).
With the back-up of accomplished session musicians such as multi-facetic drummer Carlos Vega, Jamie Sheriff (Eyes) or master Tom Kelly (I-Ten, Van Stephenson), they recorded this very good LP in 1984/5.
The style of LaMarca is catchy poppy AOR with some Hi-Tech elements, mostly uptempo, glossy and tasteful.
Put in your kitchen-aid blender equal parts of The Arrows, Body Electric, the commercial Michael Sembello and a dash of Starship and David Hallyday, and you get the appetizing LaMarca cocktail.
All tracks are good, being my favorites "The Boys" (the most purely '80s AOR here), the elegantly keyboard filled "Touch And Go" and the melodic mid-tempo ballad "When You Question Love", full of eighties magic sounds.
Only officially released on vinyl and cassette, this is a bootleg CD very well transferred, including as bonus the really good song "Hold On Blue Eyes" from 'The Wraith' soundtrack. I have replaced this track with my own rip directly taken from my own The Wraith vinyl, which sounds much better.
Additionally, as extra bonus you'll find the band's contribution to 'Lady Beware' soundtrack, the cool song "Bad In Blue".
So, you have here all LaMarca material ever recorded in one package.
