Even amidst the already seedy underbelly of the late-'80s L.A. glam metal scene, L.A. Guns were the undisputed bottom-feeders. A ragged collection of outcasts from various other bands (guitarist Tracii Guns was the original "guns" in Guns n' Roses, drummer Steven Riley had recently vacated the stool with shock-kings W.A.S.P., and British vocalist Phil Lewis had done time with London glamsters Girl), they elevated the unrepentant sleaziness and undeniable tackiness of their environment to a new VD-encrusted low. The union of such an unsavory cast of characters could only result in a wildly over-the-top rock & roll album, and while it may not have been as successful as their latest efforts, this eponymous debut rocked with a bile and fury not seen since Mötley Crüe's Shout at the Devil. Sh*t-kicking anthems like "No Mercy," "Sex Action," "One More Reason," and the marvelous "Bitch Is Back" slap the listener silly while still making room for slightly more commercial but equally hot offerings such as "Electric Gypsy" and "Down in the City".

The original tracks sampled & selected by the producers were essentially ‘70s Soul music. And it’s the opportunity to groove to Smokey Robinson, Charles Wright, James Brown or Roy Ayers among others. The loops in the Barry White and Edwin Starr introductions remain eternal, while the Donny Hathaway song will always be associated to a Dr Dre classic. While Average White Band or Ohio Players bring a funky touch, Eddie Kendricks takes us on a smooth ride with his sweet and mellow Soul. Finally, a special tribute to Clarence Reid (who passed away recently) whose drum kick was used in a famous posse cut on “the chronic” album by Dr Dre.

Despite Tom Scott's leaving the of L.A. Express, a band he helped to found, for a solo career, the quintet did carry on for two albums after he left with David Luello on saxophones. Shadow Play is the second effort, and while not as striking a jazz-fusion recording as its self-titled predecessor, it does satisfy on funk and pop grounds. Joni Mitchell backs the group wordlessly on the opening "Nordic Winds," offering a stark, progressive Euro-fusion sound to the normally sheeny L.A. Express sound. Keyboardist Victor Feldman and guitarist Peter Mannu shine here and the track feels more like late Soft Machine or early-''70s Passport than the L.A. Express.

The final album with Jim Morrison in the lineup is by far their most blues-oriented, and the singer's poetic ardor is undiminished, though his voice sounds increasingly worn and craggy on some numbers. Actually, some of the straight blues items sound kind of turgid, but that's more than made up for by several cuts that rate among their finest and most disturbing work…
