Album Review

Vocalist Paul Rodgers — who had a strong track record with supergroups like Bad Company and the Firm — and Who drummer Kenney Jones formed a duo named the Law and released one album on Atlantic in 1991. In case any listener didn't recognize the stature of Rodgers and Jones, the liner notes trace their pedigrees. The Law was backed by powerful industry figures like Atlantic chief Ahmet Ertegun (listed as a co-producer), ZZ Top manager Bill Ham, and producer Chris Kimsey.

As performed by the Law, Collen's "Miss You in a Heartbeat" is bland, but Def Leppard had a big hit with it a few years later.

They assembled a core band of studio musicians, including guitarist John Staehely and bassist Pino Palladino, and landed guest spots from guitarists like David...
