DAMN YANKEES – The Complete Warner Bros. Albums (2019)
Based in Stockholm, Sweden with a branch in Manhattan, New York, X5 Music Group is a label that primarily licenses pre-existing music for compilation albums. They have arranged with Warner Music Group for the release of DAMN YANKEES music, long time out of print in Europe. This is the just released “The Complete Warner Bros. Albums”.
“The Complete Warner Bros. Albums” comprises both DAMN YANKEES albums optimized for iPod.
While Damn Yankees self titled debut was reissued by Rock Candy Records some time ago, many listeners prefer non-remastered versions of their favorite albums.
The problem is the low signal output from original ’80s / early 90s physical CD’s when you want to rip them for the iPod. Kinda ‘flat’.
All tracks in “The Complete Warner Bros. Albums” have been tweaked / optimized for it.
While the original sound remains untouched, the files here have the proper gain for digital players.
If you wish to compare how the band’s first album ‘Damn Yankees’ here with the remastered version, check out the Rock Candy Records release HERE.
I love Damn Yankees, late ’80s early ’90s American Melodic Hard Rock at its best.
