Black 'N Blue Album
Black 'N Blue is the eponymous debut album from the glam metal band Black 'n Blue. Recorded in March to April, 1984 and released worldwide the following August, the album includes the band's only song to chart as a single, Hold On to 18. In 2015, the album was ranked 28th at Rolling Stone's "50 Greatest Hair Metal Albums of All Time".
The track "Chains Around Heaven" had previously appeared on both the second and third pressings of the compilation album Metal Massacre (1982), perhaps best known for featuring the first commercially released recording by Metallica.
