had them on Blue Oyster Cult’s second show. I love working with the
Carl Pennington, PCI Concerts
“The long awaited ‘Mysterioso’ had killer reviews in three local music
periodicals. It was as if one already knew their destiny, they
definitely have the experience and track record...”

Dave McCormick, KVTI FM 91.1

category. They had a good track record and were given raises by
concert promoters without being asked for it – which is rare in this
Mary K. Moisio, Agent ’84-‘88
“I was moved when I heard Just an Illusion it for the first time. It
was something really new and fresh…”
James Adams, co-producer of David Lee Roth’s “California Girls” and
“Miss America” pageants ’85 –‘87
“WATCHFUL GUARDS kicks off and is, for sure, the best song on the LP.
This is a pure rock song with massive keys and good, fair high,
singing. The first time I heard this great song, I thought I
discovered a new rock sensation… the following 2 tracks are again
better, but not as good as the opening track. AT ROADSIDE AFFAIRE is a
nice ballad with lots of piano-keys and the title track JUST AN
ILLUSION, although it's pure guitar orientated, has a great sing a
long chorus and a fine arrangement. Great song. HOME SWEET HOME and A
TURBULENT LOVE AFFAIR are both up-tempo songs and remind to the
splendid opening track. Both songs have subtle keys, good guitars
(some nice solo's towards the end) and are
very enjoyable to listen to.”

Living in Rock and Roll
(ROPAJIMA) was produced and recorded in 1982 at TJ Recording on a
45-rpm format. Songs include, “Living in Rock and Roll” and “Blind
Dates Seem Never too Fun”. It was their first recording so
availability is scarce.
“It was a fresh new experience working with the brothers. Pat and Ron
have awesome songwriting capabilities. The songs are full of hooks…”
Tom Landon, TJ Recording
“I’ve followed them ever since their first release went public. I
knew Living in Rock and Roll was the beginning of something big.
Their record sales skyrocketed in ’83 which locally pushed them with
the big boys…”
Terry Reed, Concert Promoter
“Oh music? It’s in their blood...”
