    Default Quarterflash -Are they Forgotten??

    Quarterflash



    Very few probably heard of this group and those who are old enough to remember probably forgot. I am sure you will recognize their single though
    Just one more vinyl album I recalled that I dont have anymore since I lost all of my old records.
    I kinda liked this band in the 80s. Basically a husband and wife team , Rindy and Marv Ross, put out their first Album "Quarterflash" in 1981. The song "Harden my Heart" reached number 3 on the top 100 and they sold over 1 million copies. Rindy has a great voice and I like the addition of the saxaphone which is also played by Rindy.
    They fit in well with the Heart / Pat Benatar crowd
    That was pretty much it after that. They put out 2 more albums up to 1985 then disbanded

    Marv and Rindy released a cd in 2008 called Goodbye Uncle Buzz which I have not heard

    I couldnt find a version of the actual music video I could embed so this will have to do



    Heres a live version with Rindy playing sax. I really like the song but I think as a band live , they lack stage presence and just dont seem energetic .
    Oh well , I still like the song



    This is another single off their first album

    I remember them....I loved Harden My Heart, but for the life of me, I don't think I could name another song by them.

    Heart for sure, no comparison

    Pat Benatar, that one i have to think about.
    I really think they could have done much more but I understand they were dropped by their record label. I believe she had the talent and voice but get the feeling there wasnt enough drive
