JIMMY PAGE – Outrider [Japan SHM-CD Ltd. mini-LP Remastered] Out Of Print

With the Coverdale / Page posts featured here, it is almost mandatory to present as well JIMMY PAGE 1988’s solo album “Outrider“, a terrific record featuring the likes of Jason Bonham, Barriemore Barlow, Tony Franklin, Robert Plant and more.
I love this album, and the version of the classic tune ‘Hummingbird’ is the best I ever heard, and worth this disc alone.

COVERDALE / PAGE – Coverdale • Page [Japan Mini-LP Blu-specCD] Out of print

It’s been almost 30 years since Jimmy Page and David Coverdale joined forces for an album eventually released in 1993 as COVERDALE • PAGE, a fascinating alliance of two hard rock legends. While some first time Page fans initially didn’t liked the venture, they recognize “Coverdale • Page” is the best thing the guitarist did since Led Zeppelin.
This is a terrific classic rock album, varied, with rockers, ballads, blues, great performances and a fantastic production. This Japanese edition Mini-LP replica on Blu-specCD adds more depth to the huge drum sound.
In our opinion, an underrated gem, and a must in your collection.

PAT BENATAR – In The Heat Of The Night [Japan SHM-CD miniLP remastered]

As requested, here’s the remastered Japanese reissue on SHM-CD of PAT BENATAR‘s debut album ”In The Heat Of The Night”. The LP surprised both rock fans and critics, and also industry, peaking at No. 12 Billboard album chart and delivering Benatar’s breakthrough hit “Heartbreaker”, the top-30 single “We Live for Love”.
I still remember, in the early ’80s, hearing “Heartbreaker” all day in heavy radio rotation. The song was everywhere.

PAT BENATAR – Crimes Of Passion [Japan SHM-CD mini-LP remastered] Out Of Print

Today August 5 is the 40th-year anniversary of the release of PAT BENATAR‘s sophomore album ‘Crimes Of Passion‘, and what a better way to celebrate it with its Japanese edition on SHM-CD, remastered.
Benatar is one of the pioneers of the 80s female-fronted rock explosion and her first few albums rocked with the best of them.
Produced & Engineered by master Keith Olsen, ‘Crimes Of Passion’ definitely put Benatar into the spotlight, and remains as her biggest selling career album, having been certified 4x Platinum riding on the success of songs like “Hit Me with Your Best Shot”, “You Better Run” or “Treat Me Right”, while…

HEART – Magazine [Audio Fidelity SACD AFZ 171 Numbered Edition] Out Of Print

Here we have a very interesting choice of album for Audio Fidelity specialists to tackle: “Magazine“, by HEART, remastered by Steve Hoffman and pressed on a wonderful sounding SACD. “Magazine” was certainly commercially successful on its first release in Canada and the U.S., albeit in an unauthorized version that the record company released rather spitefully following fractious attempts by the...

As requested, here’s the really good, now out of print, remastered Japanese Limited Release on SHM-CD of STARZ debut LP “Starz“, produced by Jack Douglas of Aerosmith fame, including four bonus tracks.
STARZ was one of great American hard rock arena acts from the second half of Seventies on par with Aerosmith, Ted Nugent or Kiss, which despite a lack of major commercial success has a lasting cult following and has been cited as a major influence by bands such as Mötley Crüe; Poison, Bon Jovi and Twisted Sister.

Here we have, as requested, STARZ‘s “Attention Shoppers!” as part of the excellent, remastered Japanese Limited Release mini-LP replica on SHM-CD reissues (now out of print) of the band’s albums for Capitol Records.
After two very good records, Capitol asked Starz for hit single and a more commercial approach. With that in mind “Attention Shoppers!” packed the melodic and very catchy “Hold On To The Night” which had a lot of radio appeal, as well as the ballad single “Third Times The Charm”.

QUEENSRYCHE – Operation: Mindcrime [Japan SHM-CD remastered +2] + I Don’t Believe In Love EP + Eyes Of A Stranger EP *EXCLUSIVE*

Yes, many of you asked for this hard to find, out of print Japan SHM-CD press of QUEENSRYCHE‘s masterpiece “Operation; Mindcrime“. I really don’t like the remastered sound of the European / US reissue, where the atmospheric passages of the album are lost.
This SHM-CD use the same remaster, but on SHM-CD this is a new sonic world. As example, there isn’t that horrible distortion at the beginning of “I Don’t Believe In Love”. Everything sounds fantastic on this SHM-CD, also the mastering (no gaps between tracks).
As great extras, we have the “Eyes Of A Stranger EP” where the song is shorter and has a different mix. Love the different ending riff as well.
And the “I Don’t Believe In Love promo-only CDsingle, which includes an extended version of the song with over 1:30 minute of great extra guitar work.
The definitive, best version of this Must Have album.

CHICAGO 19 [Japanese SHM-CD remastered +3] Out Of Print

During the ’80s CHICAGO created a string of really successful albums with their sound morphing to mainstream AOR / Adult Contemporary, something first time followers of the band disliked. But for AOR / West Coast fans like me, these records are pure gold. Appeared in 1988, “Chicago 19” deepens even more into the Eighties blistering AOR sound thanks to masterful...
