New songs had been introduced into live shows and these formed part of "The Wish", released on Music For Nations Records. The heaviest album they had ever recorded, it contained as ever an impressive variety of styles – although all are firmly in the hard rock genre. There were no diversions into the more 'fashionable' areas of music that were taking over the media.
Legs Diamond is an American rock band that has often been called "The American Deep Purple". They formed in Los Angeles, California starting with Michael "Diamond" Gargano (bass) and Jeff Poole (drums). The group released their self-titled debut album for Mercury Records in 1977. The original band broke up in 1980 after three popular albums, but reformed in 1984 after their original albums had begun to acquire a cult following… The announcement that Roger Romeo was back on board for another reformation and attack was greeted with enthusiastic anticipation. The result was their CD "Town Bad Girl" complete with controversial sleeve and crammed full of classy songs.
Diamond Mine is a considerably more quiet affair. Beginning with the very Dylan-esque "God and Country," a darker, introverted mood is set by their minimalist approach and slow tempos.
