This is a request from some time ago, the hard to find BRITNY FOX remastered double-pack of the first self-titled album “Britny Fox” and Boys In Heat, released by prestigious UK label Cherry Red though their IronBird division.

One of the brighter debuts to emerge in the late ’80s, Britny Fox’s self-titled album established themselves early on as hard-hitting contenders for the Hair Metal crown.
Often labeled clones of sister band Cinderella – whence they got their image, their guitar player Michael Kelly Smith, and record contract – the quartet overcame expectations by filling their first album with song after song of top-flight ’80s glam.
The boys each play to their strengths here, which results in killer riffs and licks from Kelly Smith and impassioned howling from Dizzy Dean Davidson.

Let’s face it, it’s hard not to grin when a song like ‘Girlschool’ is playing, and the band’s first single ‘Long Way to Love’ is one of the greatest hair metal anthem of all time.
‘Fun in Texas’ indeed packs a lot of fun, ‘Don’t Hide’ is killer kick ass rocker, we have more stadium-like choruses on ‘Rock Revolution’,
The band’s cover of Slade’s ‘Gudbuy T’ Jane’ is a fun addition, while ‘Save The Weak’ is the ballad of the album, a very well arranged composition.

This Cherry Red / IronBird “Britny Fox” remastered reissue features a pair of bonus tracks: the first is the single edit of ‘Long Way to Love’, and the second the original B-side of that single; ‘Livin’ On The Edge’, another killer Britny Fox hard rocker that deserved to be part of the main album.
Britny Fox’s debut is an essential piece into any serious Melodic Hard Rock / Hair Metal collection, and a true representation of the second half of the ’80s.
