This is one of the most underrated rock albums of all time.
Schweenya
This is a rock album that happens to have a ballad...which was the case with many top 40 rock bands from the 80's.
D. Thorpe
If you bought the Capitol version do yourself a favor and buy the Rock Candy version.

This is one of the most delightful 'lost treasures' I have ever seen - folks, this is one great record. The songs overall are excellent (though I don't really like the last song because the keyboardist sings it and I'm not that impressed with his voice, so...) and the production is really good.

This disc is worth far more than the price of admission just to hear Freddy Curci's singing. He is the most incredible vocalist I've ever heard, and I've pretty much heard them all (I'm a singer). His upper range is phenomenal, his tone is excellent, and I've never heard anyone else EVER come close to holding out really high notes for as long as he did on this record. He doesn't really do it for 'show,' the things he does are quite musical in the context of the songs. NO ONE else that I've ever heard could've done what he did on this album (not Steve Perry, not Brad Delp, nobody), which is from 1982, no less. The standout vocal performance is 'Living for a Dream,' in which Curci sings several lines that range between the soprano A and C range (that's right, he hits a few notes in there that are a _whole octave_ above the tenor high C that you hear about so often - and he _sings_ them, he doesn't scream them).

Although the band did get some recognition later on for 'When I'm With You' (and deservedly so, it's a great song), this band never really made it - in fact, this is the only studio recording that was released (there is apparently a live recording of the band that was released, and though it seems to be quite rare, it can be found on youtube as 'Sheriff Live at the El Mocambo' - and I'll save any 'doubters' the trouble - Curci could pull it all off live too!).

I can't understand some of the reviews calling this cd mediocre. I can only assume that they gave it one listen, realized they hadn't purchased whatever it was they were hoping to find and took out their misguided anger in text review. This IS a very strong collection of songs IF you love 80's top 40 rock. "When I'm With You" is the big hit ballad but this cd goes so much deeper. This is a rock album that happens to have a ballad...which was the case with many top 40 rock bands from the 80's. "Elisa", "Living For A Dream", and "Makin' My Way" are excellent songs in a sorta Styx meets April Wine kind of way. Those three songs alone are worth the price of admission...but this cd literally doesn't have a bad track. I like to listen to cds when I'm doing wood work in my basement and at first, this cd just sounded okay. It was after several more listenings that I fully realized what a great album this is. I feel like I've unearthed a lost treasure.

I remember listening to 94 Rock out of Syracuse,NY in the early 80's when "You Remind Me" came on the radio. I loved the sound of the song but only heard it a few times after and never caught the name of the group. I was lucky enough in the late 80's to pick up a cassette(by chance) by a Canadian group called Sheriff. I wondered if "You Remind Me" was the same song I had heard and loved so I purchased it. It was and what a great find. Classic AOR throughout this release with the killer ballad "When I'm With You" also here. I now have this classic on cd and would highly recommend it to 80's AOR fans out there. Great news: 707 Megaforce will be released on cd for the first time this year!

Finally!! The ending to the last track has been restored by Rock Candy Records after Capitol Records big blunder when it was first released on CD years ago. They've also included rare live tracks from a live promo CD as a bonus! Bravo Rock Candy! This label ROCKS on their remastered CDs. I have several and I have never been disappointed and this Sheriff release is a prime example of their commitment to not only the CD buying public but also the artists themselves. If you bought the Capitol version do yourself a favor and buy the Rock Candy version. The difference is night and day.

Frozen Ghost's Arnold Lanni and Wolf Hassel were one half of Sheriff, whose 1983 song "When I'm with You" recharted and hit #1 six years later. The other half of the band was vocalist Freddy Curci and guitarist Steve DeMarchi, who were both out of the music business when "When I'm with You" began receiving airplay in 1989. Curci, who was working for a courier service at the time, tells this story: "Imagine delivering a package to an office and hearing yourself on the radio. I'd be signing a shipping slip and smiling, and the girl at the front desk would ask what I was laughing about. I'd say, `That's me singing on the radio.' And she'd say, `Sure, buddy, now on your way'" [Music Express #150; 41]. After "When I'm with You" topped the charts, Curci and DeMarchi joined forces with original Heart members Michael De Rosier, Steve Fossen, and Roger Fisher to form Alias, which had a #2 hit in 1990 with "More Than Words Can Say."
