By the time Bonnie Tyler completed Silhouette in Red in 1993, she already had nearly a dozen albums to list in her musical resumé, not counting those done as collections. She is probably best known for her three biggest hits, "Total Eclipse of the Heart," "Holding Out for a Hero," and "It's a Heartache." Those songs and others earned her both gold and platinum albums, as well as a loyal following in the United States, Germany, England, and other countries. Tyler perfected her singing talents by performing with a band in numerous clubs in the early '70s. She was a big fan of singers like Tina Turner and Janis Joplin, and those strong influences often shine through on this hard to find album. With standout numbers like "Sally Comes Around," "Send Me the Pillow," and "You Won't See Me Cry," Silhouette in Red is a great find -- if you can get your hands on it.
