One More Night by Streek on Grooveshark

Pop Bits:  Not much is known about this L.A.-based group except that they were signed to CBS Records and issued a self-titled debut album in 1981. This was the first single lifted from the LP and it got as far as the Top 50. Apparently, that wasn't enough to keep them going and no other recordings were done by the band.

ReduxReview:  Well, not necessarily surprised they kind of disappeared after this. It's a bland pop/rock power ballad that has one of those arm-swaying choruses that teenagers like - ala the "American Idol" front audience. But apparently not enough as it didn't get very far. I will say that it sounds like they really committed and put their all into the song, but unfortunately the material is just not that great.

ReduxRating:  4/10

Trivia:  Double Shot!  1) One member of the band was Billy DeMartines. He was a member of Iron Butterfly for a couple of years beginning in 1975 on keyboards and vocals.  2) The band was managed by Charles Roven. He switched from music to film soon after becoming a movie producer. He has been credited on several hit films including "12 Monkeys," "Three Kings," and "The Dark Knight." He most recently was a producer on the film "American Hustle" for which he received an Oscar nod via the Best Picture category.
