Cry for freedom - White Lion

White Lion is an American/Danish glam metal band that formed in New York City in 1983 by Danish vocalist Mike Tramp and American guitarist Vito Bratta. They recruited Nicki Capozzi and Felix Robinson to complete the line-up. However, both of them left the band soon. Capozzi was then replaced by Greg d'Angelo and Robinson by James LoMenzo.

Their first and only hit in the Netherlands was the lengthy rock song 'Cry for freedom', taken from the 1989 album 'Big game'. I remember hearing it in the school canteen one afternoon and thinking it was a nice song. Soon after, I bought the single. I can't say I've played it much, though...

My collection: 7" single no. 1208
Found: Melody Maker, Den Haag, April 13, 1990
Cost: 6,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Cry for freedom' / 'Dirty woman'
