Don't Go Away

Well, I must say that I prefer Cherie's singing, but this is a terrific album. It also has my second favorite Runaways cover. It shows the girls behind barbed wire (I suppose it is a reference to their jailbait/ rebel image. Considering that this is their first album without Cherie and Jackie, they do a very good job of meshing, I just wish that Sandy and Lita had done more lead vocals. I mean Lita wrote two songs on the album, why couldn't she sing them?
