    Rockcity Records was a label run by Lou Vetere, former vocalist for TEAZER.
    The label released the 1984 compilation LP "New York Metal - 84", which featured the likes of VIRGIN STEELE, OVERKILL and BLACK LACE.
    1990 saw the label's final release, a belated follow up to the earlier compilation, the cleverly titled, "New York Metal II".
    By this time Rockcity had moved away from its pure Metal roots, though as a Hard Rock compilation this album is rather good.

    Here's a track-by-track review of the album by Keir from http://www.thecorroseum.com/comps/

    DEVIAS - Bad Girls : Glammy Hard Rock with some great Metal guitars that remind me of LIZZY BORDEN's more mainstream work. Features the vocals of Frank Vestry who sang on the debut LP by BURNING STARR.
    ROCKSLIDE - Crazy Lady : Good melodic Metal with a bit of a LILLIAN AXE feel to it.
    GRIMM JACK - Downtown : Decent Hard Rock/Sleaze.
    HANG 'EM HIGH - Paradise : Bluesy Hard Rock in the style of BADLANDS.
    STREET PIRATES - Hell's Kitchen : Awkward Sleaze, though I can hear some influence from heavier artists such as OZZY OSBOURNE.
    CANNON - Coming Down On You : Early '80s style American Hard Rock/Heavy Metal with an end of the decade commercial edge.
    KIDD BLAST - Rockin' Horse Rock : This is basically TAKASHI with Lou Vetere himself on vocals (under the pseudonym Vixx Vett). Unfortunatly they play lame Sleaze/Party Rock on this track.
    MAJENTA - Gone Tomorrow : Odd mix of Progressive Metal and mainstream Hard Rock like QUEENSRYCHE meets Y&T.
    3 DAYZ DIRTY - I Want It, You Got It : Boring Glam/Sleaze.
    DIRTY HANDS - The Score : Heavily distorted guitars and gravelly vocals usually indicate Metal, but when you strip those away it's just old fashioned Rock and Roll.
    JUSTICE - Freedom : Good but sloppy US Metal.
    PRANCER - Like It : Female fronted Hard Rock, like a less metallic BLACK LACE.

    Info: Rockcity Records was a label run by Lou Vetere, former vocalist for TEAZER. I believe New York Metal II was the last thing he did and by this time Rockcity had moved away from its metal roots, though as a hard rock compilation this album is rather good. http://thecorroseum.com/comps/nymetal2.html
