VAN HALEN – 5150 [Japan edition remastered – Forever Young series] Out Of Print

Few people know – even some rabid VAN HALEN fans – that the Sammy Hagar-era albums have been remastered as part of the Japan WB Records ‘Forever Young’ series. These are the only remastered versions available of these albums, and many of you asked for ’em over and over again, so here’s the blast “5150 – Forever Young series remastered“.
All Van Halen albums from the Sammy Hagar-era have that bombastic, glossy ’80s production, but especially on the first two, the bass presence is scarce, typical from the era. On this Japanese remaster you get…

VAN HALEN – For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge [Japan edition remastered – Forever Young series] Out Of Print

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of VAN HALEN‘s “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge“, perhaps the most complete (and best) album from the Hagar era. Few people know – even some rabid VAN HALEN fans – that the Sammy Hagar-era albums have been remastered as part of the WB Records Japan ‘Forever Young’ series. These are the only remastered versions available of these albums.
All Van Halen albums from the Sammy Hagar-era have that bombastic, glossy ’80s production, but especially on the first two, the bass presence is scarce, typical from the era.
“For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge” production is more punchy on the low frequencies, but still a bass level up is needed on the original CD transfers / pressings. On this Japanese remaster you get a higher overall (as it is the norm on most remasters) level, but fortunately not saturated / brickwalled. The waveforms are…

HEAVY METAL – Music From The Motion Picture [Vinyl LP reissue] (2017)

After many requests, here’s in exclusive the legendary “HEAVY METAL : Music From The Motion Picture“, in its 2-LP recent release. This is part of the Rhino Records ‘Rocktober’ series, an annual campaign featuring limited edition vinyl releases of classic albums, issued in October, 2017.
The 2-LP release is only available in the U.S. and Canada, already sold out now and very expensive.
‘Heavy Metal’ is a 1981 Canadian-American adult animated sci-fi-fantasy film based in the Heavy Metal Magazine, which was the basis for the film. Like the magazine, the film features a great deal of graphic violence, sexuality, and nudity, censored at various countries.
The movie soundtrack features songs inspired by the story, but most the artists involved aren’t musically ‘heavy metal’ at all. The term is used here into other context.
Musically, “HEAVY METAL : Music From The Motion Picture” offers more than the title suggests, and the songs fit perfectly with their respective film segments. Most songs from the likes of Journey, Cheap Trick, Blue Oyester Club, etc, are exclusive to this soundtrack, some never appeared into any other release, some are different from the originals, noted as ‘Soundtrack Version’.

SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE – Lockdown 2020 (2021)

“When we’re on tour, these are the songs we’ve been jamming to backstage for years. Before we go on stage, we warm up for about an hour playing everything from James Brown and AC/DC to the Bee Gees, The Who and David Bowie… you name it. So until we can get back to our live shows, these Lockdown Sessions are a great way to keep the band close and our chops up” – said Sammy Hagar about the new, upcoming album “Lockdown 2020” from SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE.
”Lockdown 2020” features updates of songs from Van Halen, including “Right Now,” “Good Enough” and “Don’t Tell Me (What Love Can Do)”; as well as Hagar’s “Sympathy for the Human”; the Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again”; AC/DC’s “Whole Lotta Rosie” and more…
