By J. E. Smock on November 3, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Steve Perry's first solo record, Street Talk, was an accomplishment on its own. The re-release in 1996 brought an edited version with improved sound quality. This new reissue of Street Talk sounds even better, and it comes with some extras as well.

The most obvious are the five bonus tracks. The first three of these tracks were from his days with 'Alien Project,' the band that recorded the demo tracks which earned him the lead vocalist position with Journey. The demos have been floating online via bootleg download sites for years. In an interview, Steve was asked if he knew about their existence. He said he did, and that he was waiting for the right time to release them. This is that time, and they sound incredible for having been recorded in 1977. Perry's voice is higher than usual, yet still maintains that energetic charisma that he carried in to Journey and this solo album. These tracks are a must have for any Perry die-hard. The track following the Alien Project demos is called "Don't Tell Me Why You're Leaving." This song was originally on the B-side of the single, "Oh Sherrie." It's an R&B track that sounds like Perry was having a blast recording it. The final bonus track is an extended version of "If Only For the Moment Girl" that sounds just as great as the rest of the album.

The other thing that makes this CD reissue worth getting is the booklet that comes with it. Like the Journey booklets, this one has lots of previously unreleased photos, some from Perry's own private library, as well as ads for the singles and a note from The Voice himself introducing the CD and its bonus tracks. Street Talk has never sounded better, and the extra tracks make this a must buy for any Perry fan or lover of great music. You will be hard pressed to find a voice as infectious and energetic as Steve Perry.

I had bought Street Talk when it had orignally came out in the 80's, on Album band tape. Bought it about a year ago on CD, Now again I have bought the new "remastered" version. LOVE it even MORE.... the addition of the bonus songs are great. I can't stop playing "Don't Tell Me Why Your Leaving" and "Makes No Difference" over and over again. What a refreshing change in style and these songs show his fans just what a wonderfully talented performer/artist Mr. Perry is... And "The Voice" should be a standard for what a singer/entertainer should be. Wish he would put out something BRAND NEW.... Doesn't matter what it is, as long as the "Perry Voice" is singing again.

Steve Perry's first solo effot,1984's "Street Talk",is softer and more pop-oriented than the albums with Journey,but there's still that distinctive soulful vocal and musical quality that is pure Steve Perry-enough to produce 4 Top 40 singles-the Top 10 "Oh Sherrie",plus "Foolish Heart,"She's Mine" and "Strung Out".Other highlights include the 60s soul homage "I Believe",the ballad "Go Away",and the moving tribute to fallen 60s rock and soul icons "Captured By The Moment".The 2006 edition has excellent remastered sound(by Dave Donnelly)that is vastly superior to previous CD editions,3 interesting unreleased bonus tracks with his pre-Journey band Alein Project in the 70's("My My My My","Harmony","Makes No Difference"),the B-side to "Oh Sherrie"("Don't Tell Me Why You're Leaving")and a song from the "USA For Africa" album("If Only For The Moment,Girl).If you're a fan of Journey or 80's pop-rock,then this is right up your alley.

he has a stunning voice, very soulful, and boy, can he hold a note!!
is this man the shakespeare of rock music?
as soon as this albums starts with the tinkly piano chords closely followed by violin & steve shouting "i shoulda been gone"! - you are hooked.
the pure voice quality on "go away" is like sumptuous velvet& the emotion in "foolish heart" tugs at the heart strings.

my favourite "she's mine" - purely for the big sound & steve fighting for his woman. the last 3 tracks are nostalgia, following by the painful angst of unrequited love - the final echo of "strung out" completes this album very neatly.
this is definitely in my list of all time fave albums.

She should have been gone, knowing how he made her feel. But what did Sherry do? She hung out. She could've done worse. Sure he made a really cheesy, mullet laced video about her, but that's love, man! That's love. What would 9th grade have been without Steve saying what we felt and with synthesizers? Different, I tell you. He told some broad "Go Away." He told yet another, if she would have tried, if she hadn't lied, she'd never be alone again. Why'd I miss my bus listening to Strung Out and eating cornflakes? It was the Steve Perry magic. That's why. He spoke for the poor, unrequited young dude. Viva la Perry! Viva la Perry!

I just listened to Steve Perry's "Street Talk," and I think it's a great Soul/Pop crossover album.
The first tune, "Oh, Sherrie," is a great rocker. I think that Journey's "Raised On Radio" album is reminiscent of this tune. It has great vocal by Steve Perry, and Michael Landeau is really good on guitar.
The second song, "I Believe," is a great soul tune. It kind of reminds me of a male version of a Supreme' tune. Sulful and upbeat!
"Go Away," is a bit slower and a lot smoother. I think there's a soft and smooth way Steve Perry croons with feeling on this, with a great, heartfelt guitar solo.
"Foolish Heart," is a really nice ballad with beautiful keyboard flourishes and smooth vocal inflections.
"It's Only Love," is a great mid-tempo rocker with a lot of screamin' soul from Steve Perry, and a rockin' guitar solo from Michael Landeau.
"She's Mine," is a nice, mid-tempo, soul tune with great vocals, but even though I like playing the sax, Steve Douglas' solo doesn't impress me.
"You Should Be Happy," is nice mid-tempo soul/rock, with good vocals from Steve Perry, but Michael's guitar work is just OK.
"Running Alone," is an OK ballad. The only thing it has going for it, is good vocal from Steve Perry.
"Captured By The Moment," is good. Steve's voice is good, and Michael has a good guitar riff going.
And last, but not least, "Strung Out," is a great rocker to finish off the album. Steve Perry's vocal inflections are great; and Michael Landeau's guitar solo is really good on this one.
It's soul/pop at its best, and it was probably the best time for Steve to leave Journey and record a solo album. It's just a shame that he hasn't done more lately.
