Synths and Rock from Canadian Rock outfit Loverboy.
This 4 tracker was from 1983 with the lead track your typical macho rock with added keyboards. Produced with Bruce Fairburn (Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Van Halen) giving it that muscular sound not too dissimilar to ZZ Top via The Cars. From their LP “Keep It Up.”
The keyboards (Doug Johnson) do play quite a large part in the bands sound and song structure as much as Tony Banks did in Genesis. As LP track “Meltdown” establishes.
“Turn Me Loose” is bass built and was from their 1980 debut album, stands up well for its age.
“Working For The Weekend” was from their second album “Get Lucky” , the keyboards are still prevalent and carry this feel good song over the line.
