Unlike his first album which consisted of cover versions, Fearless was composed almost entirely of original songs, mostly written by Curry with producers Michael Kamen and former Lou Reed collaborator Dick Wagner.
A single, "I Do the Rock", became Curry's most successful in the US, reaching the Billboard Hot 100. "Paradise Garage" was also released as a 7" and 12" single in certain countries. However, for the ultimate rockers, it is other titles which will remain engraved for ever in their hearts: S.O.S, No Love On the Street and the resumption of Joni Mitchell, Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire, highlights the work of Dick Wagner (Alice Cooper, Lou Reed), of David Sanborn (saxophone) and of Bob Kulick in the lead guitar. We find the magnificent voice of Dr Frank-N-Furter which had seduced us in Rocky Horror Picture Show in rhythms sometimes furious (I Do The Rock, Charge It …), sometimes languishing (Something Short of Paradise). The album is produced in a masterly fashion by the excellent Michael Kamen (Metallica, Pink Floyd, Queensryche, David Bowie, Queen). What to say about the rhythmic session which accompanies Tim Curry on this album: Bob Babbit (R.I.P) who we will find his wonderful play with Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Phil Collins and the drummer Charles Collins (Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls, Billy Paul, Elton John). The title Sloe Gin represented on the previous album Read My Lips was produced by Bob Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Kansas, Lou Reed, Kiss) and played by Dick Wagner. This original composition prefigured the album Fearless rrecorded the following year. A Masterpiece is just and at least reissued !
