DAVID ZAFFIRO – Yesterday’s Left Behind [Digitally Remastered 2020]

“Yesterday’s Left Behind” (1994) remains as the last DAVID ZAFFIRO solo album and the last from the 2020 reissue series from his career.
Here Zaffiro blend the melodic rock orientation of his first two albums with the acoustic mix of the third adding a certain hard rock edge. As happened with all, sound & production are pristine, even more with this clear remastering job.

We already featured at 0dayRox the remastered reissue of DAVID ZAFFIRO debut solo album from 1989, now it’s time for his 2nd, 1990’s “In Scarlet Storm“.

You need to hear this album with headphones too — even more this pristine remastered version – to discover some amazing layers of the multi-track recording, and the fabulous stereo-panning used here.

DAVID ZAFFIRO – The Other Side (1989) [Digitally Remastered 2020] *EXCLUSIVE*

Known for his renown axemanship with the iconic Christian metal band Bloodgood, DAVID ZAFFIRO surprised in 1989 with his first solo album “The Other Side” where most the material, both in songwriting & production, embraced the melodic rock / AOR sound from the era.
Indeed, while Bloodgood albums were rich in melody and some hard rock groove, all were US metal in essence. With “The Other Side”, ZAFFIRO delivers a smooth collection of AORish tunes with that polished, pristine production so ‘1989’.
Many years out of print, this 2020 digitally remastered reissue is more than welcomed, for many to discover this very good album / artist, and a great addition to your collection if you already heard the LP back in the Eighties.
