FOREIGNER – Agent Provocateur [Digitally Remastered From The Original Master Tapes] out of print (HQ)

We’ve been asked for the best sounding release of FOREIGNER‘s classic ”Agent Provocateur”, one of the most reissued albums in Rock history. Well, it’s hard to decide, at first glance the original vinyl LP press should beat any.
But we are in a digital era, and this ”Agent Provocateur” release remastered CD from the Original Master Tapes is a really good one, handled by expert Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound Studios. Combining the best of both worlds – the sound quality is between the warm harmonics of a LP and the clarity of a digital treatment – the output is not brickwalled, well balanced.
Musically, there’s not much to add; FOREIGNER’s ”Agent Provocateur” packs that ’80s magic and some of the band’s evergreen classic songs…

It finally happened: one of my favorite albums of all time, FOREIGNER “4”, received a Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi) remaster treatment. This Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid SACD is a sonic Heaven.

LOU GRAMM – Ready Or Not [Wounded Bird Records reissue] *EXCLUSIVE*

As requested, here we have former Foreigner vocalist LOU GRAMM‘s 1987 solo album “Ready Or Not“, in its Wounded Bird Records CD reissue which sounds much better in dynamics.
The greatness of “Ready Or Not” should be credited as well to talented Bruce Turgon, who co-wrote most the songs with his exquisite tastes and also play various instruments, even dropped a guitar solo.
Gramm started o work on “Ready Or Not” when Foreigner entered into some kind of a hiatus after the success of ‘Agent Provocateur’. Lou got offer of a solo album, and the result is “Ready Or Not”, a melodic collection of songs with all that ’80s magic.

LOU GRAMM – Long Hard Look [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

LOU GRAMM has one of the most unique and remarkably memorable voices, not only as frontman of multi platinum selling US melodic rock gods Foreigner, but also as solo artist as this remastered reissue by Rock Candy Records of his second solo release “Long Hard Look” highlights.
Few singers could touch Lou Gramm in his prime; “Long Hard Look” has the hard edge and hot vocal that was such a contribution to Foreigner. It also shows a maturation of style and interpretation that put him in the company of very few as far as quality of performance and breadth of talent.
Excellent remaster by Rock Candy.
