Product Description

Special Deluxe Collector s Edition / Fully Remastered Sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / 12 page full colour booklet 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork and band involvement. FOUR ALBUMS INTO their career and Le Roux were edging ever closer to scoring success on a national and, indeed, international level. This was back in the days when record companies would give artists enough creative lee-way to develop their craft and build a committed fan following. So Fired Up was, then, the band s fifth album and is largely regarded as one of their finest, erupting with the sort of energy and sophistication that rivals the great melodic rock champions of the day such as Foreigner and Journey. Originally released in 1983 and once again produced in-house by bassist and founder member Leon Medica, the record featured two new member; that s guitarist Jim Odon and vocalist Fergie Frederiksen, formerly of lauded pomp rockers Trillion. With the new material highlighted by Frederiksen s captivating vocals and the tough-guy guitar playing of Odon, the band found a new lease of life, constructing a record to rival their previous masterpiece Up . Sadly, despite the quality of So Fired Up and the momentum built with their preceding releases, the record commercially underachieved, leaving the band exposed to label politics. So, when a change of regime occurred at RCA, Le Roux where summarily dismissed along with several other promising acts on the cusp of success. Holed beneath the waterline, the band fell apart, unable to sustain such a body blow. Thank heaven we still have their musical legacy to cherish.

.....and straight out of the hair metal heavens....came LeRoux!!!!!!!!!! 23 Jan. 2008
By Tom Sawyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
LeRoux had already established itself as one of the most diverse rock bands in history even before this 1983 release. With smash hits like "New Orleans Ladies" (a ballad from the Louisiana's LeRoux days back in 1978), the timeless rock gem "Addicted", and the Top 20 "Nobody Said It Was Easy" from the year before, the boys were well on their way to becoming one of the elite names in AOR for the eighties. Then came the arrival of Fergie Frederiksen.

Ladies and gentleman, this is not your grandfather's Le Roux. You will find no honky-tonk, ho-down, gumbo or southern boogie-blues here.

What the album does do, however, is rock your f-ing socks off!

Rod Roddy's keyboards complement Frederiksen's voice to perfection, but they don't stick out like a sore thumb either. The trio of guitars from Medica, Odom, and Haseldon over-power the keys for the most part and create a blend of hard rock nearly flawless for an 80's AOR album. Frederiksen is so effortlessly smooth here. He hits high notes most people would only dream about. But he does it with such authority. It's as if God himself specifically designed him to be a singer in the 80's. And when you add a healthy dose of re-verb to the equation, forget about it.

There are moments of dangerous predictability here though. For example, the song "Lifeline" uses the dreaded helicopter/synth effect to open the song. This was a gimmick used way too often in the early 80's (i.e. Aldo Nova's "Fantasy", Billy Squier's "In the Dark", and Def Leppard's "Die Hard the Hunter"). There are also many cases where songs start off as ballads, but predictably turn hard. And the true ballad "Wait One Minute" is pretty non-chalant and mediocre. But all is forgiven when the overall product is this good.

And if you're a true AOR buff, you'll recognize the MTV hit "Carrie's Gone" (the most poppy of all the songs), which Fergie wrote after breaking up with Carol Burnett's daughter, Carrie Hamilton. They also did a music video for "Lifeline", which you can see on Fergie's website: (...), or on You Tube, of course.

It's a shame this line-up of the band didn't stay together to do more albums in the 80's. "F" you, RCA! Oh, well. At least we've got this one.

My favorite LeRoux album. 12 Jan. 2011
By ScottE - Published on Amazon.com
Was just cruising through Amazon and was looking up LeRoux, and noticed they have re-issued their back catalogue.
"So Fired Up", is one of my favorites. Fergie Frederiksen had just joined the band on vocals, this album is a true rockin' release from '83. With Fergie's powerful vocals we get "So Fired Up", "Lifeline", a great song as well, "Carrie's Gone" #79 hot 100 played a lot on our local rock station that summer,also a personal favorite. And then these songs were good too, "Turning Point" and "Back In America". Good stuff from the guys in Baton Rouge. Fergie would join Toto in late '84.
Back in America - Play this loud! 10 Mar. 2015

When rock and roll was the norm, it was playing everywhere and boy it felt great to be alive. My father was a Deadhead and my mom's favorite band was Fleetwood Mac, and even they both got into '80s rock depending on what it was. I was only a little boy during the '80s, and I enjoyed Meat Loaf and Journey the most. I played cassette tapes on a cheap portable tape player. I remember it well, it was a yellow hand held thing with a radio antenna and a record and playback function. I wore that thing out on long family trips and after National Lampoon's European Vacation came out in theaters the radio was playing "Back in America" non-stop. It was my favorite song of all because I really thought it was Journey at the time, even my parents thought it was Journey for awhile.

What's it like to be Back in America? Loud music, hot women, fast cars, wild and crazy sports, burgers on the grill, man getting back with nature, and owning the best TV and speakers money can buy. A real American sticks it to the man and will keep a fighting spirit.

I was introduced to Le Roux by my first husband when we first met. We danced to "New Orleans Ladies". I was hooked.....on him and the band. I lost my first husband back in 1995. Le Roux is still in my playlist today.
