P.M. HEAT - P.M. Heat EP (1989)

P.M. HEAT - P.M. Heat EP (1989)
Requested in "REQUEST & FILL CORNER" section...

Today we have here an obscure, private vinyl-only EP released by Texan rockers P.M. HEAT. Founded by Mark Hybner who is a well known band-manger 'til today, there are several players listed on the back cover but not specifying which instrument.
Anyway, this is a short but meaty slice of American Melodic Hard Rock in the rocking and polished style of the late '80s, akin Autograph, King Kobra or Babe Blue (presented HERE six years ago).

"Power" is a winner; plenty of guitar / keyboard interplay, a killer chorus and slightly raspy lead vocals.
"Could It Be You" is a little harder with a Dokken-esque atmosphere, "I Wanna Rock" has driving sharp guitars and anthemic-like drumming, while closer "Never Break My Heart" is the more AOR oriented tune of the bunch, melodic and catchy.

How funny to run across your post. I grew up watching these guys in our local dance halls in Texas. They were known as The Emotions when they were doing their cover band thing. I remember when this came out. I actually have a copy of it someplace but would really have to dig. Thanks for the memories.
