This is Lita Ford at her best – a stellar performance.

Grammy-nominated "Queen Of Hard Rock" Lita Ford has brought together a collection of recordings from the late eighties (her most successful era to date), showcasing what happens when a group of musicians kick back and have a blast. British born, Ford's career and personal associations read like a "who's who" of Hard Rock, and big names are found here too.

Audio imagery is created straightaway where, in the Ford household, an angry Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P.) is looking for his car keys, only to discover Ford driving off in his 'Ford'! Then 'Where Will I Find My Heart Tonight' kicks in – bearing similarities to 'Close My Eyes Forever', this could have been penned around the same time, and has Jeff Scott Soto dueting with the leading lady on this fine song.

Take Rock organ, hard-hitting riffs, heartfelt lyrics, vocals oozing heartache and pain, and, just to ensure this ballad is top notch, add Billy Sheehan (bass), Dave Navarro (mandolin) and Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen (backing vocals), and the recipe for the pure class of 'Killing Kind' is complete. The heavier sound of 'Black Leather Heart' with its whammy bar wizardry and deep groove conjures up images of a kick-ass leather clad Ford throwing shapes with a low slung BC Rich Bich.

Reminiscent of eighties' Kiss with its badass groove comes 'Rotten To The Core'. No great surprise here as Gene Simmons and Bruce Kulick guest on this track. The result, however, is infectious top quality Arena Rock.

There are two instrumentals which illustrate that Ford is not just a Rocker but also one of the most under-rated guitarists around. The slow Heavy Blues playing on 'Little Wing' is of the highest standard with fluidity and feeling. Ford also gets harmonics jumping off the fret-board to a rhythm of neat bass lines and gated drums in 'On The Fast Track'. Ford's vocal talents on 'King Of The World Wind' sees a gentler performance which gives air and space to this song which has a sound akin to Heart.

Ford has endured much personal and musical hardship over the years, and maybe without that these songs would never have been written with such conviction, but when it comes to raunchy, riffing Rock with attitude... she is hard to beat. This is Lita Ford at her best – a stellar performance!
