Review

What a presentation! A triple fold out cover with several sheets and lotsa band intern info wraps this local 7" where you are told that VELOCITY are preparing a video clip for the track "Chic for now" and will release their debut LP very soon but has anyone seen this LP yet? Prohably I got just a promotional copy who knows. VELOCITY features several local known Boston musicians and "She's on fire" belongs prohably to the greatest US AOR/Hard Rock hymns ever, ranking in my book directly behind SURVIVOR's "Burning heart" who prohably had been top influence for VELOCITY. Both songs are made the same way and both had fantastic vocalists in their line up too. I just can't stop to praise this track, it's superior! End of the story is as expected the B side cannot hold that high standard! Their highly awarded keyboarder wrote that track and it's just a usual when also energetic Hard Rocker with AOR refrain. The usual stuff...
