CD Reviews

This album deserves recognition!

"When Steve Walsch wandered away form Kansas and formed this band, I don't think he knew what the legacy would be. There are those of us out here, that have been Streets fans, since this album was released. The opening track of "If Love Should Go", was originally released on the radio when I was in college. We used to call and request it all the time. Cold Hearted Woman is sung by Billy Greer (now the bass player for Kansas), and is not only a strong tune, but shows how powerful his vocal is. My favorite track on this CD is "Fire". It has the most kick butt guitar and keyboard riffs I've heard in years. Still one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time. I'm glad these CDs have been released, because they've never been released legally in the US. I've had several CDR version and they've never sounded true to the album. I've very happy that they've finally been released for public consumption! Give them a try, especially if you are a City Boy fan (Mike Slamer is from this progressive rock band), or a Kansas fan. Enjoy!"

"I dug Steve Walsh and Kansas big time when I was back in school. I picked up the Streets album "1st" as soon as it came out, and was blown away by the riffs, the songs, the vocals, the 80's power. If you are not dancing and singing in the driver's seat during "If Love Should Go" or playing power-air-chords during "Move On", then you are somehow soul-less. Just kidding. Take a chance on this CD!"
PLEASE BUY THIS CD ....IT KICKS!!!!!!!

"I saw Streets as an opening band to Loverboy early in their first tour. They blew Loverboy off the stage! My friend and I were off to the record store to buy the cassette the next day. In my opinion (and my friends still to this day) this is one of the best rock albums ever made. It's unfortunate this band wasn't properly promoted by the record company (THEY DID NOT SUPPORT THIS BAND BECAUSE THEY WERE COMFY WITH KANSAS' PLATINUM SALES) That show was one of the most awesome powerful rock shows I ever saw (and I saw plenty). I'm so glad it has been released on CD!!! Do yourself a favor and BUY THIS!!!"
