It would be hard to imagine a demo more quintessentially '80s than this seven track promo from BABY CHERIE. The would-be-radio-hit is clearly the opening track "Oh, My Little Rocker" an infectious dance floor stomper streamlined, polished (complete with a QUEEN-esque operatic vocal break) and ready for a shopping mall montage scene in some terribly dated teen movie. Ballads abound (I question the inclusion of four slow dance numbers on a demo this short, and running "I'll Let You Go" right into "Walking On A Thin Line" right out of the gate is a boner killer), but "Summer Night" is fresh (dig the synth/bass leads around 1:40) and while "Trust Is A Fool's Game" drags a bit, its thin production and anthemic driving tempo are amateurishly endearing...and the guitar solo is quite legit. There must have been countless thousands of BABY CHERIEs in the mid '80s and clearly most never achieved any kind of success, but hats off to Cherie Bronow for laying it all out, and I'm glad you left us this gem to document your efforts.
