UFO (feat Michael Schenker) – Force It [Deluxe Edition remastered 2021]

Chrysalis Records started a Deluxe Edition reissue program of the UFO catalogue, and now we have the 2LP vinyl and 2CD expanded editions of ”Force It”. Originally released in 1975, ”Force It” is UFO’s fourth studio album, produced by Ten Years After’s Leo Lyons. It was also their first album to chart in the US and contains many classic tracks still in their live set today, such as ‘Shoot Shoot’ and ‘Let It Roll’.
For the new deluxe editions, the album was remastered by Rock Candy Records resident Andy Pearce from the original production master tapes. Bonus material comes in the way of the studio outtake “A Million Miles” and the bonus disc containing the live set recorded at the Record Plant, L.A, in 1975, now revitalized with a pristine sound quality.
For many people this album marked their youth via its controversial cover artwork, hard rocking pulse, killer songs, plus Michel Schenker hot licks, and still sounds great today, even more with this new remastering job…

HOUSE OF X – st [UFO / Phil Lynott Band / Lionheart / MSG members]

Three years of touring and recording as X-UFO led to this band finding their own identity and prompting a ‘re-branding’ as HOUSE OF X. As requested, here’s their self-titled album “House Of X” released on Escape Records.
We’re talking about the super classic Hard Rock combo including singer Danny Peyronel (ex UFO, Heavy Metal Kids), awesome guitarist Laurence Archer (Grand Slam, Phil Lynott Band) Clive Edwards (Wild Horses) on drums, and Lionheart / ex-MSG Rocky Newton on bass.
“House Of X” (the album) is an excellent example of classic, traditional British Hard Rock being made in the now and still sounding not only relevant but also incredibly kick ass. It’s a tour de force through…

UFO – Strangers In The Night [Remastered 8xCD Deluxe Edition] (2020)

Arguably one of the greatest hard rock live albums in history, UFO‘s 1979 “Strangers In The Night” is being reissued today as an 8-CD Deluxe package. Capturing the band at the peak of their powers the original double album was compiled from recordings made at six shows during in October 1978 on an American tour.

The sound quality of this fresh 2020 remastering is outstanding.
Absolutely great package for those of us, who think ”Strangers In The Night” is one of the greatest live albums ever. The energy of the band and the show is really unbelievable. Michael Schenker was amazing on these recordings, just the perfect…

VINNIE MOORE – Aerial Visions (2015)

I couldn’t resist; instrumental guitar albums are hard to see (and sell) pieces nowadays, but when noticed about VINNIE MOORE‘s new solo CD “Aerial Visions” I gotta listen to it. And glad I did it. Vinnie Moore belongs to the golden generation of shred guitarists from the ’80s. It has been the times when Shrapnel Records brought quite some of...
