Bio:

Moving from Hamburg, Germany, to Los Angeles, USA, in 1983, vocalist Lenny Wolf teamed up with Bruce Gowdy (guitar) to form Stone Fury. Adding Rick Wilson (bass) and Jody Cortez (drums), they signed to MCA Records and debuted the following year with Burns Like A Star. The album offered traditional blues-based hard rock, similar in construction to Led Zeppelin. Wolf’s vocals were modelled very closely on Robert Plant’s, both in pitch and phrasing, which provoked accusations of imitation. Let Them Talk was more restrained and employed a greater use of melody and atmospherics. Unable to make a breakthrough in the USA, Wolf went back to Germany and later formed Kingdom Come on his return to the USA in 1987. Gowdy, in the meantime, formed World Trade.

Album:

Retrospect remastered edition.Stone Fury’s second album “Let Them Talk” never was released in Japan, so there’s no reissue from there. Nor even released on CD at the time it appeared (1986) because their label MCA was absorbed by a major company, and many bands found themselves in the middle of nothing. Additionally, there was – and still are – legal troubles with this album.But in the the Nineties and after Lenny Wolf’s success with Kingdom Come, he got an arrangement for the album to be released in his home country (Germany) on CD, remastered. This one… now out of print and being sold for over USD 200.Some time ago I read somewhere that this CD version is not official, nor remastered. Both false.The confusion comes because a Russian bootleg label copied the German artwork and pressed various copies – unauthorized – but with a poor sound transfer.Indeed, this “Let Them Talk” -original- German CD sound fabulous.Speaking about the music inside, “Let Them Talk” was a drastic change in direction compared with the rocking previous. There was the mid-80s, and Stone Fury core Lenny Wolf / Bruce Gowdy looked for a commercial, poppy delivery.Produced by Richard Landis (Van Stephenson, Glen Burtnik) you know what to expect here: tons of keyboards, synth fills and elaborated harmony vocals. Gowdy was more concentrated on his keys more than his sharp guitar riffs from the previous album, and Wolf sings smoothie.For fans of the hard rockin’ sound from the previous record, “Let Them Talk” was disappointing. But you need to listen this album from a different perspective… think about it as a different band, and judge it for what it is.And it is a quite good light AOR / FM oriented record with a poppy commercial feel and uber polished production. A true product from the ’80s, and I love it.‘Too Late’ is a pure AOR tune, just wrapped with a sonic picture similar to Starship. Title track add more guitars – but extremely clean – and musically reminds me Mr Mister.‘Lies On The Run’ is an uptempo little gem, this time with more prominent guitars and compressed drums, ‘Babe’ is a nice midtempo, while ‘Doin’ What I Feel’ and especially ‘Eye Of The Storm’ are pretty Hi-Tech in the typical Canadian sound of the era. I like this stuff!‘Stay’ is another typically ’80s tune with a glossy production and strong vocals by Wolf.If you love the ’80s, stylized light AOR sounds from the middle of that magical decade, you need to check Stone Furys’ “Let Them Talk”, a really hard to find album for many years, hence, unheard by most fans of this wonderful musical era.
