SHY – Excess All Areas [Rock Candy remaster +4] (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

One of the greatest Melodic Hard Rock / AOR albums of all time just has been ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records; SHYExcess All Areas” including 4 bonus tracks.
Before undertaking their all-important third album, 1987’s “Excess All Areas”, RCA relocated Shy to Los Angeles to soak up the Californian melodic hard rock radio vibe. Songwriting session started soon and the recording label secured the services of – omnipresent in most great ’80s records – talented Neil Kernon to produce.
The result was an awesome blend of American flavored AOR played in a British melodic hard fashion, and one of my top 50 Best Of albums of All Time.
