NIGHT RANGER – Live In Michigan ’84 [The complete show / ‘Alive The Live’ Japan release only]

Here’s another fulfilled request of NIGHT RANGER‘s “Live In Michigan ’84” complete show, as part of the very good Japanese specialized label “Alive The Live” series. There’s many bootlegs of this Aug 8, 1984 recording, but none with the sound quality of this CD (A++). No cuts between tracks, this the complete set list remastered.
When Night Ranger released in 1983 their 2nd studio album “Midnight Madness”, the band no more needed to support the likes of Ozzy Osbourne or ZZ Top, they became headliners touring the entire USA for over a year – started in Santa Cruz, CA on November 23, until December 31, 1984, performing more than 100 shows.
This is Night Ranger at the top of their game, playing the greatest songs from their first two albums with ‘that momentum’ like never hear after this tour. This was captured in the Summer of ’84, and Jack Blades & Co. deliver a storming performance.

NIGHT RANGER – Big Life [Japanese SHM-CD remastered]

Some time ago we already featured here “Big Life“, the last ’80s album recorded by NIGHT RANGER in its remastered Japanese SHM-CD version. It was a mini-LP replica limited edition / sold out, but few months after Universal Japan did a fresh reissue.
It supposedly uses the same, last remaster, the same manufacturing process, the same material for the physical disc, but… this one doesn’t sound the same.
Call me nuts, but while the original SHM-CD release delivered a bright sonic spectrum, this recent 2016 feels different; not better, not worse; different… and great.

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.
