"Find Another Fool" by Quarterflash

Song#:  0915
Date:  02/13/1982
Debut:  87
Peak:  16
Weeks:  13
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  The Oregon band's debut single, "Harden My Heart," was a gold-selling #3 single. This follow-up didn't reach those heights, but it did reach the Top 20 and help boost sales of their self-titled debut album, which reached #8 and went platinum.

ReduxReview:  Getting even more Pat Benatar-ish, the group issues another solid single. In my opinion, it was worthy of a Top 10 showing. I'm not sure why it fizzled a bit short. But then again, this one rocks a bit harder than "Harden My Heart" and Benatar's singles were peaking in the same area as well. Just the state of the chart and radio at the time I guess.

ReduxRating:  7/10

Trivia:  Main band members Marv and Rindy Ross were commissioned by the state of Oregon to write a musical to commemorate the Oregon Trail. Using diaries from immigrants and other materials, they created the show "Voices from the Oregon Trail" in 1992. With other musicians, they performed/recorded the musicial as The Trail Band. It proved to be successful and the group went on to record several other albums of traditional Americana music.
