BERNIE MARSDEN – Kings (2021)

Kings” is the first album of BERNIE MARSDEN’s “Inspirations Series”. Featuring 10 songs that were originally recorded by Albert, B.B. & Freddie King, and recorded in a studio in Oxfordshire with a band that just locked into a natural groove, “Kings” is chock full of blues and soul. Additionally, two Bernie Marsden penned songs inspired by ‘The Kings’ appear as bonus tracks on the album.
The LP marks both Marsden’s first solo effort since 2014’s ‘Shine’, and the first of his newly announced Inspirations series, which will see the former Whitesnake guitarist pay homage to a host of his influences.
Highly recommended pure music

COZY POWELL – Tilt [Korean Edition remastered]

It has been requested classic COZY POWELL albums in the best sound quality possible. “Tilt“, the second Cozy solo album has been reissued in Japan remastered an pressed on SHM-CD. Bu we’re more than happy with this Korean pressing which uses the same master and has an excellent disc manufacturing too.
”Tilt” features musical assistance from Jeff Beck, Don Airey, Bernie Marsden, Gary Moore and great vocals by Elmer Gantry (Alan Parsons) among other luminaries. Considered to be one of England’s best drummers, Cozy Powell was legendary for a heavy-hitting style that could be made to work with many styles of music, which are addressed here…

COZY POWELL – Over The Top [Universal Japan Hard & Heavy series]

It has been requested classic COZY POWELL albums in the best sound quality possible. “Over The Top“, the first Cozy solo album has been reissued in Japan on SHM-CD. We don’t have it, but don’t need it either: this ‘Universal Japan Hard & Heavy series’ from 2007 uses the same remaster and it sounds fabulous.
This is a Nineties remastering – the only available for this album – and perfectly fits to this recording: this is a late Seventies album and this type of ‘quiet’ remaster preserves the original harmonics.
The pristine sound quality from this Japanese CD is clearly noticeable against the other pressings we heard.
With Gary Moore, Bernie Marsden, and Don Airey among the musicians surrounding Cozy on this album, you only can expect superb musicianship.
