Point Blank was a blue/rock band from Texas who had numerous charting albums in the mid-1970s and early 1980s. Two of those albums, the self-titled "Point Blank" & "Second Season" were originally issued on Arista Records in 1976 and 1977 respectively. This hard driving band has a loyal fan base that has been screaming for these to come on out CD. They are making their worldwide CD debuts!
Great southern rock band

"Point Blank's first two releases on Arista proved to be their strongest records in a career that lasted into the 80's. The original lineup cranks out southern rock that is reminiscent of the Outlaws with twin blistering guitars, but can still turn in a softer sounds as well-check out "Stars and Scars"
Airplay proved to be a turning point in the band's career after signing to MCA the band seemed to start a revolving cast of band members and O'Daniel and Petty left soon after. O'Daniel himself saying he was unhappy with the direction the record company was trying to push the band. The Hard Way was probably the last record made which still sounded like original Point Blank. American Exce$$ and On A Roll saw Bubba Keith come in as lead vocalist and the band going into a more AOR direction with mixed results."

"I first heard Point Blank back in '76 when the first record came out. I bought it and thought it was great but for some reason kind of lost track of the band. I happened to find "Second Season" used at a record store locally 2 years ago and I think its awesome.
Stand out tracks for me are "Back in the Alley", "Uncle Ned" and especially "Tatooed Lady", a personal favorite (I love the mean F# key its in). This of course is not the Rory Gallagher classic, Irish Tour '74 being a standout version, but its awesome just the same. I was in a cover band a year or so ago and wanted to play this song but I guess the singer couldn't cut it (or didn't like it).
This album is a jam-along favorite for me as is the first album. I highly recommend this CD to any fan of Southern Rock or Blues Rock."
