JIM PETERIK – Comeback Story / The Best In Us + Quarantine Live Set 2020 *EXCLUSIVE*

JIM PETERIK hasn’t been quiet during this lockdown: he wrote & recorded two new songs, “Comeback Story / The Best In Us” performed in a duet with powerhouse vocalist Cathy Richardson (Starship).
But Jimbo also did a streaming live show presenting bot new cuts plus some amazing acoustic / electric versions of some of his best songs.
There’s a great take of timeless classics such as ‘Eye Of The Tiger’, ‘Burning Heart’, ‘Caught Up In You’ (the song he wrote for 38 Special) but also surprising arrangements on ‘Heavy Metal’ (co-penned with Sammy Hagar for the movie of the same title), his classic ‘Vehicle’ into an amazing blues version where Cathy Richardson shine on vocals, and the rare, very early Ides Of March’s ‘L.A. Goodbye’.

SURVIVOR – Live In Japan 1985 [Japan only release / Remastered 2009] *EXCLUSIVE*

To complete the recent SURVIVOR exclusives recently featured, here we have the awesome “Live In Japan 1985“, recorded live September 21, 1985, in Tokyo, only released in Japan and fully remastered.
Perfectly captured and mixed by Mike Clink, the album showcases how amazing SURVIVOR / Jami Jamison were performing alive.
There was a budget release in the USA some years ago as part of the Extended Versions series, however, it was incomplete as it dropped 2 tracks.
“Live In Japan 1985” is the only official release documenting one of the greatest Melodic Rock bands in history into the ‘tiger natural environment’: the stage.
A MUST HAVE

SURVIVOR – Fire Makes Steel [The Unreleased 1993-96 Album with Dave Bickler]

And as requested, here’s the ”lost” SURVIVOR album “Fire Makes Steel“, which are in fact the songs the band composed and demoed between 1993-1996 and never crystallized into an official release.
Few of these song ideas ended into the SURVIVOR’s album ‘Reach’, however most of the tracks remain unreleased… and how good, brilliant stuff they are.
After Jimi Jamison left the band for a solo career, in early 1993 Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan reunited with original lead singer Dave Bickler as SURVIVOR and…

SURVIVOR – Albino Tiger ; The Rare & The Unreleased (0dayrox compilation)

As requested, here we have compiled in a ‘0dayrox style’ some rare and unreleased SURVIVOR, not only with Dave Bickler & Jimi Jamison on vocals, but also Robin McAuley demos.
We’ve take from our vault a lot versions of their mega-hit “Eye Of The Tiger” all of them never commercially released, such as Dave Bickler doing it acoustically, the Jimi Jamison version, an instrumental, etc.
Amongst these rarities there’s three tracks recorded with Irish shouter Robin McAuley (proposed to be Survivor’s lead singer), the only known recorded version of “Velocitized” (later done by Mecca), and various extended mixes (all performed by Survivor).
As an 80s movie soundtrack fan, I love the “Burning Heart” & “Eye Of The Tiger” mixes only heard in the film Rocky IV, never released on any format and heavily edited from the DVD as source.
Of course are included here the exclusive songs only present into the Greatest Hits releases ‘Ultimate Survivor’ (2004) and ‘Greatest Hits 2’ (1993), and the track recorded for…

SURVIVOR – Greatest Hits 1979-1988 +1 [Japanese Limited BEST 1000 series] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Sony Music Japan started a new Limited BEST 1000 reissue series from ’80s artists from their catalog at the affordable price of 1000 Yen (around U$S 9). This SURVIVORGreatest Hits 1979-1988‘ is a great purchase for this price, and even includes a free coaster featuring the cover artwork.
Available for a limited period – in fact it’s already out of print – the release is only for the Asian market – song titles are in Japanese – however you can order the CD overseas. The sound quality is excellent, very vinyl LP-like in Dynamic Range.
This compilation includes the Peterik/Sullivan penned previously unreleased Survivor version of “Rockin’ Into The Night” (which was recorded by .38 Special in 1980) and ‘Summer Nights’ in its Full Length Version.
You may have most of these songs already, but getting these hits all-in-1 CD at this price is a great deal. And I never have enough Survivor…
