"Trust Me" by Cindy Bullens

Song#:  0007
Date:  01/12/1980
Debut:  93
Peak:  90
Weeks:  3
Genre: Rock

Pop Bits: Bullens had two well-received albums in the late 70s that somehow didn't really catch fire; even though her debut disc "Desire Wire" garnered her a Grammy nom for Best Rock Vocal Performance. She is still recording and getting great reviews, but from what I have read her first two LPs should have made her a star.

ReduxReview: Well, it was bound to happen. This is the first song I've come across that I can't find a full version to hear. Seems almost strange. The best I could do was the above YouTube video that features a snippet of the song at the 2:16 mark. From what I could tell, I like this and may even try to search out her first to discs. I actually bought one of her later discs, the 2001 "Neverland," but at that time she was more into roots rock than the pop/rock heard here. I can only rate by what I hear, but my expectations would be...

ReduxRating:  8/10

Trivia: Bullens got a second Grammy nomination for her lead vocals on the "Grease" soundtrack where she performed "Freddy, My Love," "It's Raining on Prom Night," and "Mooning."
