Rev It Up

Rev It Up is the second album by American hard rock band Vixen, released by EMI in 1990. It entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 20, and placed two songs inside the Billboard Hot 100. However, it did not match up to its predecessor in the US and EMI dropped the band shortly thereafter. The race car on the cover belonged to local racing legend, and all around hero Bobby Baldwin.
