DAMN YANKEES – Uprising Live! [Japan LaserDisc 0dayrox rip]

After the new DAMN YANKEES remastered releases and Shaw / Blades albums featured here, it was requested the Yankees’ only official live show released: “Uprising Live” never was released on CD audio, only on VHS, LaserDisc and later DVD.
We have taken the audio files from the Japanese-only LaserDisc (remember those?) and edited the tracks (no audio / sound tweaks) for you listening pleasure.
DAMN YANKEES was an amazing melodic hard rock machine, and performing live they show all their potential and power.
All their hits are here; ‘Come Again’, ‘High Enough’, ‘Coming Of Age’, plus a Styx, Night Ranger and Ted Nugent covers.

DAMN YANKEES – Damn Yankees +1 [Rock Candy remastered]

Easily in our Top-50 rank of the best US Melodic Hard Rock records of all time, the self-titled debut by DAMN YANKEES still sounds awesome today, even better on this crisp remaster done by Rock Candy Records including a bonus track.
Super Groups come and go; often in an initial blaze of glory and then more often than not disappear in a puff of smoke due to a half-assed work ethic and the sound of clashing egos.
This was not the case with Damn Yankees, a veritable smorggersboard of prime time American musical hard rock talent: Ted Nugent, Tommy Shaw (Styx), Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and drummer Michael Cartellone.

When it comes to extracurricular...

TOMMY SHAW – Girls With Guns / What If [2-in-1 BGO digitally remastered]

At the beginning of the Eighties TOMMY SHAW departed Styx to pursue a solo career focusing on commercial Melodic Rock, AOR and rock&pop with the radio-friendly approach so in vogue around the time. First it was “Girls With Guns” in ’84, and then “What If” (1985), both including cheerful melodious tunes but more deep lyrically than it may seem at...
