On the strength of the double platinum soundtrack to Eddie and the Cruisers, John Cafferty And The Beaver Brown Band were able to record Tough All Over, an album of their original songs, and release it under their own name. Released in the summer of 1985 at the tail-end of Eddie-mania, the record managed to spawn hard-rocking Top 40 hits, "C-I-T-Y" and "Tough All Over," which strongly recalled Springsteen, much like the rest of Cafferty's songs. Besides the two hits, Tough All Over lacked material that ranked with the best of the Eddie and the Cruisers soundtrack. Nevertheless, the album stayed on the charts for an impressive 32 weeks.

First heard these guys when they did the soundtrack for Eddie & The Cruisers. They sound very much like Springsteen and the E Street Band. If you are a fan of Bruce, and I am, you'll become a fan of John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band.
JOHN CAFFERTY IS ONE OF THE MANY UNDER-RATED ROCK STARS. HIS VOICE IS AMAZING.HE HAS THE VOICE OF SPRINGSTEEN, AND I HOPE YALL WILL CONSIDER BUYING ONE OF HIS CD'S, I PROMISE YOU WONT REGRET IT.
