The Best Of Paul Sabu” features all the songs from that collaboration all over 15 tracks, some rare only found on the AOR Japanese pressings, others as bonus tracks from the 2 Chasing Violets albums + 2 brand new tracks recorded specially for this project.
Along Paul Sabu you will find talented musicians such as Tommy Denander (Alice Cooper, Steve Walsh), Sarah & Mélissa Fontaine (Chasing Violets), Linkan Andersson (Zoodrive), Martin Karlsson (Livin’ Parasite) & Pete Newdeck (Eden’s Curse).

CORPORATE CONTROL (Paul Sabu) – Whatever It Takes (2021)

Released by Perris Records, “Whatever It Takes” is the debut album from CORPORATE CONTROL, an American-German collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Marcus Boeltz and AOR heavyweight Paul Sabu, joined by bassist Barry Sparks (Yngwie Malmsteen, Scorpions, Dokken).
Formed in 2019 the idea behind ”Whatever It Takes” was to produce a fresh and modern sounding classic melodic hard rock / AOR album that also features instruments untypical for the genre such as Sitar, Madolin and Cello.
Co-produced by Boeltz & Sabu who also handles all vocals, there’s unmistakable ’80s elements all over, bringing to mind SILENT RAGE, KANE ROBERTS, and of course, PAUL SABU solo. But as said, Boeltz adds a special touch on the arrangements and some instrumentation…

PAUL SABU – Hard Rock Zombies [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

One of the most revered cult classic B-movies from the ’80s is without a doubt “Hard Rock Zombies“, which soundtrack written, performed and produced by PAUL SABU remained unreleased for many years. There was several bootlegs, but now Sabu has joined with Lunaris Records (specialized in horror and cult film soundtracks) for a full, complete release.
Of course it’s also available on vinyl LP and cassette, as a true product from the ’80s should be.
“Hard Rock Zombies” is one of those…

The CD’s theme is about the ever changing city of Los Angeles that lost its soul for a brand new world far from the recklessness of an era long gone. But the ghost of the ’80s is still haunting the streets of L.A.
With the help of top producers such as Denander & Sabu, Slama is offering once again a really solid album that will please…

ONLY CHILD – Only Child +4 [Rock Candy Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Rock Cany has just released their remastered version of Paul Sabu’s ’80s band ONLY CHILD, its self-titled debut “Only Child” including 4 bonus tracks.
Paul’s previous (solo) album, the awesome ‘Heartbreak’, was a valiant attempt to raise awareness of his talent, but with limited promotion it failed to connect with the wider public.
Three years later, recognizing that fans wanted nothing more than to be swept up in the emotion of a vertiginous chorus, written in the image of a Desmond Child or a Jack Ponti, Sabu put together his magnum opus, Only Child.
Sabu had learned his lessons the hard way. Popular acclaim was the target. And that remastering job makes the gutsy urgency of of ‘Just Ask’ and ‘I Wanna Touch’ sound dynamic, clear and pin sharp, later mainlining us into the adrenaline rush of ‘I Believe In You’, and ‘Save A Place in Yourt Heart’, unwrapping both songs’ full potential.
It was career highpoint that still resonates today as one of the best AOR albums from the 80s.

At the early 80s and before his stupendous solo debut 1985 LP, Paul Sabu had become a name to watch.

With a project under the name KIDD GLOVE, its self titled album appeared in 1984. While there has been a couple of remastered reissues, Rock Candy Records just released their own, including 4 bonus tracks, some of ’em never heard before.
