SURVIVOR – When Seconds Count [Rock Candy remaster +1]
Requested by many of you, here’s more SURVIVOR ‘Remastered & Reloaded’ by Rock Candy Records. Let’s go now with their awesome “When Seconds Count“, including a bonus track.
Recorded in Los Angeles, produced by long time associate Ron Nevison (Heart, Bad Company, Foreigner, etc) and featuring the now world-wide star vocalist Jimi Jamison, the album picks up perfectly from ‘Vital Signs’ boasting a number of classic cuts including the anthemic ‘Rebel Son’, ‘How Much Love’ and heart rending power ballads ‘In Good Faith’ and top 10 US hit single ‘Is This Love’.
Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan just kept serving up catchy, radio-friendly superb songs, and Jamison gave those songs the heart & soul they needed to become timeless.
“When Seconds Count”, originally released in 1986, is a record choc full of great songs, placing Survivor in the pantheon of primo American AOR units, alongside masters of the craft such as REO Speedwagon, Journey and Foreigner.
Reissue specialists Rock Candy put out the definitive version of “When Seconds Count” with this brilliant digital remaster from original source tapes.
Additionally features as bonus track ‘Burning Heart’, the US #2 hit single originally featured in the blockbuster Sylvester Stallone movie Rocky IV, but not included on the original release of the album.
“When Seconds Count” remains an essential album not only for Survivor fans, but for fans of classic AOR and Melodic Rock in general. Yeah, in fact any collection – it does not matter the genre – is not complete without this diamond, and this excellent remastering makes this a mandatory upgrade over any previous versions.
