Under Fire’s sole release is something of a lost AOR classic, and the making of what might have been a minor super-group. The band was originally put together when New England and Alcatrazz keyboard player Jimmy Waldo met Billy Squier guitarist Cary Sharaf, and quickly formed a strong writing partnership, way back in 1988. They were joined by vocalist Moki Demarco, settling on Steve Schwartz and Greg Wise for drums and bass. With a modest budget the band recorded this eponymous album and played only one show, at The Roxy in Los Angeles. At the time, Jimmy Waldo had also been writing and recording with Quiet Riot for their “QR” album, and as the latter retained a major label deal, Waldo decided to throw his lot in with Quiet Riot, and “Under Fire” sadly languished on the shelf. In 1997 the “Under Fire” album finally found an official release; on Point Music/AOR Heaven in Germany, GB Music in the States and Avalon in Japan, though it failed to make much impact at the time. Finally, this album can get a proper release, and now features a second CD featuring eight bonus tracks. Also featured is newly commissioned liner-notes by Classic Rock’s Malcolm Dome based on recent interviews with Jimmy Waldo.
