WANTED burst onto the Indianapolis hard rock scene in '89 with a blend of memorable hooks and in-your-face vocals. Sharing the stage with talented local acts such as Sweet F.A., Schoolboy Crush, Ma Kelley, Snakeskin Cowboy, Felony, and Nova Rex, WANTED became a Midwest favorite.

WANTED was made up of five very talented musicians from all over America.

Bobby Sisk, a multi-talented musician from Miami, Florida, began his musical career at age 9 when he started out playing piano, guitar, and drums. At age 23, Bobby finally found himself in WANTED making a name for himself as a premier vocalist for an up and coming band.

Scott Cole, an experienced rock drummer, started at the age of 14 in Dayton, Ohio. Scott had quite a bit of experience being on the road and felt at home behind the drums.

Eric "Cruise" Saylors, one of the two guitarists, originally from Kokomo, Indiana, began playing at

Five glam cowboys from all across America under the name "Wanted" broke into the Indianapolis metal scene in 1989, garnered many fans and praises, and even landed a serious contract discussion with Geffen Records, but something bad turned out, maybe because of the grunge wave, that eventually made the deal went south as fast as the blowing wind. Thanks to the talent scouts at Eonian that discovered this gem, we got ourselves a chance to stream this great album after being kept in their grandma's basement for over 20 years.

"Whiskey And Woman" is a huge opener, strolled with a strong early Skid Row vibe, the flaming rhythm and the wild roar of Bobby Sisk sends the chill to my spine, his hellish scream also reminds me of Todd Poole from Roxy Blue. "Too Hot To Handle", which coincidentally share the same title with one of Roxy Blue's great track, is also another superb hard rock track. Together with the groovy "Another Day" and the hooks-galore of "Blue Jean Baby", those four tracks are my favourite of the bunch. My little complain is those songs are just way too short, several just can't reach the 3-minutes mark, making them missing a longer solos and important bridges.

If not for the six live tracks on the second half, this album can be as short as an EP, but let's consider those live tracks as a bonus. Some great concert tracks such as "Anchors Aweigh" or "Sidewalk Seducer" actually are quite awesome if only the production is much better. Those live songs are barely audible but the poor source might be the sole reason for the sound problem as in the B-rated bootleg quality.

Bobby Sisk is the man of the record, he has a huge talent to succeed and what a shame he and the band didn't make it back then. All in all, for demos hunter and obscure-glam fans, "Too Hot To Handle" is a very nice addition to your library, especially if you're into bands like Skid Row, Roxy Blue, and Motley Crue, and worth the money for tracks like "Whiskey And Woman" and "Blue Jean Baby" alone.
