ZAPPACOSTA – ST [Connoisseur Series digitally remastered] *EXCLUSIVE*
As requested, here’s the rare Canadian-only remastered limited release of ZAPPACOSTA‘s self-titled ’84 debut album “Zappacosta”. Out of print and a collectors item now, a copy of this CD is being sold at Amazon Canada for U$D 1,150 !
Due the growing demand for classic Canadian rock & pop recordings, especially ones released prior to the CD boom, EMI Music Canada created in 2001 the ‘Northern Heritage / Connoisseur Series’, special reissues of long time deleted albums or never appeared on CD, fully remastered from the original tapes.
These were unique, Internet-only releases, exclusively sold via EMI Music Canada website. One from the series was this ZAPPACOSTA’s self-titled debut album remastered, of course out of print now and a collector’s piece.
“Zappacosta” is classic Canadian lite AOR with that polished, pristine production, top playing, and Alfie Zappacosta’s smooth vocals. With not a bad track in sight, this is regarded as his finest work.
It’s timeless stuff, apt for FM radio, driving, or just to enjoy with a fine wine at hand.
As said, this ‘Northern Heritage / Connoisseur Series’ remaster is almost impossible to find.
Thanks to Liam for this rarity!
