SEDUCE – Too Much, Ain’t Enough [Digitally Remastered] (2020)

Cult classic second album “Too Much, Ain’t Enough” (1988) from SEDUCE is being reissued / remastered including a bonus track. This is a band which at the time of this recording got a unique sound integrating the weightiness and authenticity of classic rock, unabashed brassiness of glam, danger of Detroit grit, and the ferocity of American metal.
Best known for their appearance in Penelope Spheeris’ cult film ‘The Decline and Fall of Western Civilization Part II’, SEDUCE were the only band not based in Los Angeles to be featured in the documentary.
There’s a ‘big reverb’ all over this album, so ’80s. And I mean ‘huge’. Some may like it, some not, but it’s pure…

REBEL feat. John Lawton – Stargazer [Digitally Remastered] (2020)

Today, the rare, cult album “Stargazer” by REBEL featuring John Lawton on lead vocals is being reissued for the first time on CD and fully Digitally Remastered.
Originally released in 1982 but unfortunately poorly promoted, Rebel was the brainchild of a young guitarist called Tommy Clauss (later in ZAR). John Lawton, ex-Singer of URIAH HEEP was on a promotion tour for his album ‘Heartbeat’ in Germany, when Tommy had the chance to meet him and to ask if he wants to produce their album. Lawton ended recording all the songs on “Stargazer”.
Classic rock in the vein of URIAH HEEP, DEEP PURPLE or RAINBOW, this album is way too good to be forgotten. During the years it became a kind of cult album for hard rock fans, but it never got a proper and official release on CD, until now.
Limited to 500 copies.

GARY MOORE – Run For Cover [Japan SHM-CD remastered +3] [Limited Release] Out Of Print

As requested, here’s the now out of print Universal Music Japan reissue of ”Run For Cover”, as part of the nine-albums rock masterpieces from GARY MOORE featuring cardboard sleeve cover artwork, the high-fidelity SHM-CD format and the latest remastered sound – plus 3 bonus tracks, one of them featuring Phil Lynott.
Run For Cover” is often considered as Gary Moore’s breakthrough album, and his more glossy / melodic produced. It features as well, monster vocal contributions by legends Glenn Hughes and Phil Lynott.
Indeed, checking the credits, you’ll see no less than four big name producers were employed in the making of “Run For Cover”: Mike Stone (Journey, Whitesnake), Peter Collins (Bon Jovi, Queensryche), Andy Johns (All!) and Beau Hill (Ratt, Winger), with each playing to their strengths.
Parping ’80s keyboards are present…

Phil Lynott’s GRAND SLAM – The Collection [4xCD Box Set remastered] *EXCLUSIVE*

Since a couple of weeks we’re featuring here the complete Thin Lizzy discography, but it was also requested Phil Lynott’s own ’80s project GRAND SLAM, a really worthy piece of work.
Housed in a long box digipak, “The Collection” is a four-CD archive release from the former Thin Lizzy mainman and Irish Rock legend containing previously unreleased material and rare recordings, all remastered.
This out of print collectible features an unreleased live concert from 1984 amongst the audio treasures plus unpublished photos / booklet and more.

SANDY STEWART – Cat Dancer [Wounded Bird Records remastered / first time on CD] OOP

After featuring the second SANDY STEWART LP – under the Blue Yonder moniker – it its natural to feature her first album “Cat Dancer“, fully remastered and put on CD for the first time by Wounded Bird Records. It hasn’t been re-pressed, so this sole CD version is out of print now.
Listening to ”Cat Dancer” you realize singer/songwriter Sandy Stewart should have been an ’80s star. This is radio friendly rock&pop / Lite AOR of the highest quality with mature arrangements and interesting lyrics, plus the bombastic production of the era (1983-84) with Beau Hill involved.
A winner.

JON ANDERSON – Song Of Seven [Remastered & Expanded Digipak] (2020)

Esoteric Recordings are releasing a freshly remastered 2020 Expanded Digipak version of “Song Of Seven“, the second solo album by JON ANDERSON, a fine job done from the original Atlantic Records master tapes and is expanded to include 2 rare US single edits previously unreleased on CD.
“Song Of Seven” was recorded during Jon’s first hiatus from YES, with whom he had become an internationally known vocalist and songwriter and followed on from his 1976 first solo album. Working with keyboard player Ronnie Leahy, Anderson created an optimistic album of varying influences and he gathered together a fine ensemble of musicians to assist him such as celebrated bass players JACK BRUCE and JOHN GIBLIN, guitarists CLEM CLEMPSON and IAN BAIRNSON, saxophonist JOHNNY DANKWORTH and drummers MORRIS PERT and SIMON PHILLIPS.
I always liked this album – fans of Camel or Alan Parsons need to check out this, same early 80s pristine sound design & production, even more clear now with this remaster.
Highly Recommended

GRAHAM BONNET – Solo Albums 1974-1992 [HNE 6xCD Box Remastered + Bonus] (2020)

What makes this rare collection an extra treat is the inclusion of…

BILLION DOLLAR BABIES (Alice Cooper Band) – Battle Axe [HNE 3xCD Complete Edition Remastered] (2020)

Hear No Evil / Cherry Red are releasing tomorrow the most complete BILLION DOLLAR BABIES‘ album “Battle Axe” ever; fully remastered and with 2 extra discs.
Following Muscle Of Love in 1974, the original ALICE COOPER BAND took a break to consider solo projects outside of the band. The plan had been for the original Alice Cooper band to regroup and record in 1977, but by this time the name of the band had become very much synonymous with it’s lead singer – Vincent Furnier – who now had very much morphed into Alice as far as the public were concerned. The “solo” Alice record Welcome to My Nightmare had firmly separated Alice Cooper the singer from Alice Cooper the band.
Rather than abandon the intended album, drummer Neal Smith, guitarist Michael Bruce and bassist Dennis Dunaway joined forces with lead guitarist Mike Marconi and Alice Cooper keyboard player Bob Dolin, and signing to Polydor records, fashioned the abandoned Alice Cooper band album into ”Battle Axe”, calling themselves BILLION DOLLAR BABIES, a very deliberate nod to their previous incarnation.
The original album has now been augmented with a whole disc of pre-production demos, including non-album tracks ‘I Don’t Know Babe’, ‘Wallow Through This Madness’, ‘Only One Will Walk Away’ and ‘High Heels Hollywood’. The Billion Dollar Babies only played four live shows before disbanding, but thankfully someone was around to record the very first of these shows, in Flint, Michigan on 6th July 1977, put on CD3.

TRIXTER – New Audio Machine +1 [Remastered 2020]

So Steve Brown, who owns the tapes, decided to re-vamp this very good album and make it available again via his label Brownstone Music with an improved, remastered sound.
After 20 years since their last proper, full length studio release, TRIXTER awakened with this….
