Genre: Heavy Metal
Country: USA
Release date: 1985

Track List:
  1. Lady Of America
  2. Rainbow Rider
"Blind Owl was formed summer 1972 in Gardena, California. They won Battle of the Bands at El Camino College, played the Hollywood scene, Trubador, Gazzarri's and Golden Bear. In 1985 they put out the Lady of America single on the Blue Streak label (MCF 2016A). The only member known on this single are "David Jeru" the other members are unknown"
That's all I could find out about this really obscure band. Apparently there's also a dark ambient project from Iran under the same name, which I haven't checked out yet. Speaking of this single, it a very good example of mid-80's US melodic hard rock/metal, shame that during their >13 year-long existence they never released anything beside this. Unlike most other classic metal bands on my blog, I discovered this one not because of Vibrations of Doom collection, but via Strappado Metal Archives (excellent blog, highly recommended!)
