During the early days of heavy metal it was pretty unheard of(or at least uncommon) for women to be involved in playing in bands.  Sadly it was a sausage party for sure.  In recent years having a female vocalist has sorta become a novelty.  At any rate Acid and Bitch were some of the first heavy bands I can recall hearing that had a female vocalists.  The band was from Belgium and crucial in my upbringing in metal.  It was due to bands like this that helped open my mind to other bands with female vocalists. Sadly I was a closed minded metalhead in the early 80's.
 I recall seeing and hearing a local band from Albany NY called Blacksmith at of all places Chucky Cheese's.  Blacksmith at the time had a girl singing for them.  I ended up striking up a conversation with the singer who's name was Heidi Black.  She was the one who clued me into Acid as it was a influence on her vocally.  I immediately went to Record Town in the Latham circle Mall and picked up the tape.  Thanks Heidi.
