I was a Lita Ford fan from the beginning when I saw her perform "Rock n Roll made me what I am today' on Dance Fever. Yeah that's going back aways. After 'Dancing on the Edge' there was a looooong wait for her self titled album. Sharon Osbourne (Mrs. Ozzy) became her manager during this time. The songs 'Can't Catch Me' and 'Blueberry' rock, but it was obvious Lita was going for a more 'pop' sound to get her introduced to a more mainstream audience. This was her most successful album, due to the early hit 'Kiss Me Deadly' and then the runaway success of 'Close My Eyes Forever' which was a duet with Ozzy Osbourne. Both videos were on MTV a lot, so Lita got the exposure she wanted. Hey musically this is a great album, and her guitar work is excellent. 'Broken Dreams' is a good example of this. Don't hate me, but this is probably my least favorite of all her albums (Afterall I have them all, one has to be my least favorite right?) I prefer her harder edged work like on her Dangerous Curves album, or if you can find it 'Out for Blood'. I'm glad Lita had her overdue taste of success with 'Lita'. When she opened for Bon Jovi, I left when her set was done.

OK, Mike Chapman is best known for producing Blondie and writing songs with Holly Knight for countless artists (Heart, Tina Turner, etc.) but who would have thought he was able to jump-start Lita Ford's solo career into gear? After the forgettable Dancing On Edge and Out For Blood, Lita Ford switched labels from Polydor to BMG, got Sharon Osbourne as her manager, and some songwriting help from her producer as well as Nikki Sixx and Lemmy Kilimeister. Result: an album with a harder-edged sound and which yielded her two best charting singles.
"Back To The Cave" demonstrates Lita's fiery guitar-playing abilities and a sound that outdoes Slippery When Wet-era Bon Jovi, but then, she ups the mileage on the next song. "Can't Catch Me" with its express train guitar and organ keyboards is by far the best song here. Small wonder, as Motorhead's Lemmy wrote this. The sound more than makes Lita's point that she's no Sandra Dee, nobody to pushed around, and someone who appreciates a little taste.
The Chapman-penned "Blueberry" is a guitar rocker with Ron Nevison-like keyboard fills, but nothing that dilutes the metal in this song. With a refrain like "I'll be blue for you" and a line, "I take him hard, make it hard against the wall," well, figure it out.
Then comes the single that got Lita into the Top 40 for the first time. With metal guitar riffs and keyboards, but with pop sensibilities without diluting its power, "Kiss Me Deadly" seemed to be one exception to non-thrash groups that weren't churning out pop metal but still making it in the charts--I count Def Leppard, Cinderella and Motley Crue as other heavier than average charting groups, for example.

Format: Audio CD
Former Runaways guitarist Lita Ford made a smooth transition to the metal world with hard-hitting albums like Out for Blood and Dancin' On the Edge, but it was 1988's Lita that made her, however briefly, a major star. For this album, Lita signed on with manager Sharon Osbourne (wife of Ozzy, in case you missed it), who had her glam up her image, soften her sound and go for platinum.

Osbourne brought in hitmakers like Bob Ezrin to help write the album, and Motorhead's Lemmy wrote a track, as did Lita's ex, Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx. The biggest "get" Sharon brought to the record was her husband Ozzy, who sang with Lita on the top ten hit "Close My Eyes Forever," which I believe is legally required to be included on every 80's metal compilation album. "Kiss Me Deadly" was the other big hit. The album as a whole is soulless, overproduced hair metal (and I say that as someone who adores soulless overproduced hair metal) that is as polished and radio-friendly as possible. Any edge Lita had from her earlier career was left at the door, along with most of her clothes (which made for some smokin' videos).

I'm not going to begrudge Lita the success this album brought her, but it's still my least favorite Lita Ford album. I much prefer her heavier stuff (check out the great Out for Blood/Dancin on the Edge 2-on-1) and even the lighter Dangerous Curves. Still, if you're looking for the one Lita Ford album that pretty much defines her career, it's going to be Lita.

Having produced a couple of below par releases, Lita had a great attitude that just needed to be captured and assisted by a bit of spit and polish. This is the CD that did it all for her. Neither a stellar vocalist or guitarist a fantastic set of rock and rock pop numbers showcased that Lita was capable of being up there with the best of them both male and female. "Back To The Cave" opens it up with a broody sexiness that in no way needs to apologise for being about a woman who knows exactly what she wants. "Can't Catch Me" is her speed fest (realtively speaking) with an authorship by Motorhead's Lemmy. A great rock tune. "Blueberry" is my personal favourite with its sultry suggestiveness. In fact there is little sugestion and a lot of pointedness. A great song. "Kiss Me Deadly" is a cover of whom I can't recall but gave her the much needed hit single. Its okay if not as strong in my opinion as other originals on offer. "Falling In and Out Of Love" is a Nikki Sixx number which is a very classy track suggestive of the earlier Crue years in such songs as "Hollywood" and a bit of a borrow from "Too Young to Fall In Love". Other highlights are the synthed washed "Under The Gun" about rebels and the lonely lives they lead. Probably more about leather chaps on the Sunset Strip than on a mule in the desert. Closer of "Close My Eyes For Ever" is arguably the best song here although there are many. Its a grandeous duet with Ozzy. Nobody writes them like that anymore with bitter sweet longing. So as a summary there is plenty to love here and a recommendation to add this to your collection is all that remains for me to do. Recommended.
