It was a femme fatale fiesta over at the USA Network in the early 90s when their television films, draped in genre atmospherics, featured actresses such as Joanna Cassidy, Suzanne Somers, Sela Ward, Traci Lords, Crystal Bernard and Morgan Fairchild getting terrorized and fighting back against psycho stalkers, devilish tots and perverts in dark vans.

The glorious Lisa Hartman joined in with this cosmetic strewn cadre by starring in 1991’s Red Wind, a thriller in which Kris Morrow, the psychotherapist she plays, finds herself involved with a murderous, gender bending patient. lisahartmanredwindgwg24-vi

Of course, if Hartman had been sporting the hair there that she, gloriously, works in the video for I Don’t Need Love, the single released from her fourth LP Til My Heart Stops, she probably could have cut through that deadly situation in a matter of seconds.

Hartman, who is the first person to be featured twice in a row in this column (such love I have!!!), went on to record a number of hit duets with her singer husband Clint Black, and still maintains a deserved and healthy fan base at https://www.facebook.com/Lisa-Hartman-Black-182279741844146.

She should have been cowering from that electricity enhanced alien in Not of this World (1991), but instead the exquisite Lisa Hartman decided she would rather be Hiding From Love as witnessed by her 1982 album Letterock, a recording that was even rereleased as a self titled offering, later in the decade, due to her popularity on the nighttime soap opera Knots Landing.

Hartman, who also provided a killer surprise in Wes Craven’s Deadly Blessing (1981), even performed that popular Bryan Adams tune on an episode of Solid Gold.

Unfortunately, Letterock (and its subsequent reiteration) never really took off with the public. Interestingly, it is one of the perkiest female rock records of that era with some fun new wave and pop numbers and a running time that passes by brightly. It also qualifies as very ahead of its time. The song Johnny’s Always On My Mind details the female narrator’s attempts to steal a man away from his boyfriend –   a bold concept even in today’s music world, let alone in the period of time when it was actually released.

So, bravo, Goddess Hartman….
