    Donnie Iris is a pretty good tunesmith and a great screamer. Recorded in , Live! At Nick's Fat City includes Iris' early-'80s hits "Love Is Like a Rock" and "Ah! Leah!." Also included is "The Rapper," Iris' hit with the Jaggerz, and a version of the overdone "Minnie the Moocher" that strangely borrows heavily from Joe Walsh's "Rocky Mountain Way."5/

    Recorded from a live performance at now defunct, legendary Pittsburgh Southside rock club Nick's Fat City, in the mid's, it is a definitive 'Live' recording from Mr. Iris (born Dominic Irasce - don't quote me on that last-name spelling). The Cleveland connection was supplied by keyboardist-songwriter-house lawyer Mark Avsec/5(4).
