TOMMY SHAW - Girls With Guns (1984)

Do you remember Miami Vice's episode with the track "Girls with guns" blasting your TV speakers?
I do.
What a great Loverboy style song!
I purchase the record inmediatly, and find a bunch of great stuff in it.
"Lonely school" is an all time classic ballad, maybe you don't remember it, download the album and your memories gonna back to you...
Produced by the monster Mike Stone(Queen, Journey's Raised on Radio, Whitesnake's 1987,etc) this record sounds million bucks.
Also Kenny Loggins co-write some tracks.
This is the first Tommy solo album, out of print as far I know.
