Y&T – Earthshaker [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

Rock Candy Records did a ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ treatment to the early ’80s Y&T albums, for many, the band’s finest moment. “Earthshaker” was Y&T’s first album for A&M and the first under their current name, after changing it from Yesterday and Today used on the two prior records.

The whole album standouts driven by hot riffs, even present on the ballsy power ballad “I Believe In You”, a reference for just about every hair metal to come in the way of crafting their rock ballads.
“Earthshaker” stunned the hard rock world with its aggressive songs and production. It was a double whammy that breathed new life into the band’s profile, helping to re-establish them as…

Indeed, “Yesterday & Today Live”, released by Metal Blade Records, captures Dave Meniketti & Co. at the peak of their game, a well-oiled line up which sounds incredible.
Recorded at San Jose Cabaret, December 29 / 31, 1990, Y&T performs here not only like if it was the last day of the year, but the last day of the world…
