Webb Wilder--Tough It Out (1992)
We begin this week's edition of Lost Tracks Of The Week
with another very likely "I've heard that song before, but I never knew the title or artist" track.
This one is a hybrid rockabilly/straight ahead rocker. And the result was an AOR hit, albeit the only one Webb Wilder ever had. But from everything I've heard, he still enjoys a loyal following and puts on one heck of a live show.
I like this one a lot. Crank it up!

Martin Briley--Salt In My Tears (1983)
This awesome track--one of the best breakup songs ever--dates back to MTV's heyday. It serves as a reminder of the days when MTV not only played music videos, but served as a Top 40 Pop/AOR station all in one. And this track received airplay on both formats, though significantly more--what else is new?--on AOR radio.
Martin Briley also received moderate AOR airplay with the title track of his 1985 LP Dangerous Moments,
but that was about it for him radio wise. Did I mention that this track is awesome?
