STRANGEWAYS – Native Sons [Rock Candy remaster +2]

This Rock Candy Deluxe Remastered Edition of STRANGEWAYS “Native Sons” is the definitive version to one of the best albums from the burgeoning ’80s British AOR scene. This was requested many times on the blog, and here it is in all its glory.
After the short tenure of vocalist Tony Liddle in the first Strangeways album, the Stewart brothers (guitar / bass) and Jim Drummond (drums) went back to the drawing board and decided to have another shot at convincing their first choice singer to come over and join the band, with American vocalist Terry Brock finally doing just that.
As usual the great remastering by Jon Astley breathes new life into what was already a genre classic, and with the bonus track and Dave Ling’s enlightening essay, this is a must have release, for sure one of the best British AOR albums of all time…
