and band involvement. "WE'VE SAID it once and we'll go on saying it; Canada during the early eighties was a veritable breeding ground for fabulously talented melodic hard rock bands. Per capita they had more world class musicians setting mind blowing standards of song writing than any other country in the world. Loverboy, April Wine, Coney Hatch, Triumph, Aldo Nova and Sheriff instantly spring to mind but if you're looking for a band that combine the two golden hallmarks of melody and muscle then look no further than Streetheart. Formed in Winnipeg, Streetheart ascended the step ladder of success rapidly. Instantly successful the band's style and performances were characterised by compelling songs, tough riffs and thought provoking lyrics. It didn't hurt that they were fronted by Kenny Shields, one of Canada's most celebrated vocalists and a man who poured every ounce of energy into his performances.
Originally issued in 1980, 'Drugstore Dancer' was Streetheart's fourth album and found them basking in the spotlight of success, brandishing a work of serious magnitude. Rockier and more focussed than their previous outing, the band's switch from WEA to the Capitol label certainly paid dividends propelling the record to platinum status and securing their place in the Canadian rock and roll hall of fame."
