In The Dark
Sealed 1978 Original With Small Cut Out Hole. “Dyan Diamond's Only Album, In The Dark, Is A Perfect Example Of An LP That Was A Creative Triumph But A Commercial Disappointment. Produced By Kim Fowley, This Little Known Release Showed Her To Be A Spirited New Waver With A Passion For Rockabilly And Early Rock & Roll. The Singer Really Soars On Covers Of Elvis Costello's "Mystery Dance" And Jimmy Reed's "Baby, What You Want Me To Do," But Most Of The Songs Were Written Or Co-Written By Diamond Herself. Though A Rockabilly/Roots Rock Approach Serves Her Well On "Animal Girl," "Back On The Strip," And The Gutsy "Gonna Rock Ourselves To Death," She's Equally Captivating On The Eerie, Menacing Title Song, The Infectious Hard-Rock Item "Nervous," And The Bluesy "Hot." One Of The LP's Best Cuts Is "Your Neighborhood," Which Finds The L.A. Resident Reflecting On The Political And Cultural Events Of The 1960s. Had Justice Prevailed, Diamond Would Have Been As Big As Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Or Chrissie Hynde -- And In The Dark Wouldn't Have Been Her Only Album. Unfortunately, It's Doubtful That The Long Out Of Print In The Dark Will Ever Be Reissued On CD. So If You Come Across A Copy Of This LP, Grab It At Once.” – Alex Henderson, AMG
