Payola$ / Rock & Hyde

rjmk

The only omission to this album was "I Will" the other Rock & Hyde song that was the last we heard of this group/duo.

not the best of...

okay, they were the singles, or most of them, but they were also made by the "radio friendly" version of the Payolas that saw them change their style and name several times to supposedly make them accessible to bigger markets. Anyone who bought and really listened to the "No Stranger to Danger" album knows that nearly all of it's songs are better than this grouping.

About The Payola$

Vocalists Paul Hyde and Bob Rock formed the Payola$ with drummer Chris Taylor and bassist Larry Wilkins. After "China Boys" was released on their own Slophouse Records, A&M signed the band and released four albums from 1979 to 1985 — In a Place Like This (1981), No Stranger to Danger (1982), Hammer on a Drum (1983), and Here's the World for Ya (1985). After breaking up in 1985, Rock and Hyde continued on, releasing a popular single in 1987 called "Dirty Water." Paul Hyde left for a solo career in 1989; Bob Rock later joined the band Rockhead.
