Harem Scarem - Hard Rock
After a little more than a decade with Warner Records Canada/Japan, Harem Scarem was at a crossroads. The Rubber albums had been moderately successful in Canada, but fans still wanted the band to return to a sound more like their early albums. For a while, the band considered packing it in and moving on to other interests. To the delight of many of their fans, they thought twice about that decision and signed a new record deal with Now & Then Records.
