From 1988 its  Blue Collar, a band that I played with in Kansas City.  This is our original music ( i was wrong on the intro, when I thought it had cover tunes.  I was actualy listening to two tapes at the time:-)  It features Rick Jaques on Guitar, bass, drums and vocals, Tom Gary on Keyboard, guitar, key bass, and vocal, and Dave McConnel on Drums and back up vocals.  It was recorded by Rick Jaques sometime around 1988.  It is a mono mix, but sounds great.  Somewhere I have most of these songs in stereo and with Dave on lead vocals.  Look for a part two:-)
