Background: Released in 1977, Waitin’ for the Night was the third studio album from the Runaways, and the first without original singer Cherie Currie.

The album did not chart in the U.S. gave Waitin’ for the Night a 3 star review:

Cherie Currie’s departure was a major loss for the Runaways, but it was hardly a fatal blow. The female hard rockers still had a gem of a singer in Joan Jett and a captivating guitarist in Lita Ford, and they continued to offer sneering, in-your-face rock & roll on their third album, Waitin’ for the Night. This LP isn’t quite as strong as Queens of Noise, but is excellent, gutsy, and inspired nonetheless.
