LOUDNESS – Soldier Of Fortune [30th Anniversary Japan-only Ltd. Edition 3xCD remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, LOUDNESS‘ “Soldier Of Fortune” was released in Japan in a 3-CD remastered version a couple months ago. A ”Soldier Of Fortune [30th Anniversary]” Limited Edition which is already sold out.
Featuring the impressive Mike Vescera on lead vocals, “Soldier Of Fortune” is one of the best hard rock albums appeared in 1989-1990, criminally underrated but a true blast from start to finish.
This expanded version includes a marvelous remastering job, an extra disc of rough-mix recordings from the “Soldier” sessions, and other CD with previously unreleased demos / songs.
The remaster is fantastic, believe me, and you have the extras to enjoy.
For us, a must have into any serious Hard Rock collection.

LOUDNESS – Dragon + Ghetto Machine [2 albums remastered] (2020)

Both albums are groovy heavy rock akin ’90s GEORGE LYNCH / KXM, some classic bluey heavy like BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION (Glenn Hughes), and a touch of LIVING COLOUR. Akira Takasaki is the driven force…
