1994 'S/T' CANDY006

1994 'S/T' CANDY006

Fronted by the voluptuous Karen Lawrence, 1994 were one of the greatest North American hard rock bands that time and tide has indeed forgotten. Signed, in a blaze of publicity, to the mighty A&M label, produced by seventies studio wizard Jack ‘Aerosmith’ Douglas and hailed as the next big thing, the band never quite made the commercial impact all had hoped for. Critically, however, their music was bestowed with fervent praise attracting rave reviews both at home and abroad.Released in 1978, Geoff Barton, then writing for Sounds magazine, and now, of course, Editor of Classic Rock, made no secret of his love for 1994’s self titled debut album, going so far as to acclaim it as one of the years best releases; a veritable cracker box of explosive guitar based rock topped off with a stellar performance from one of the best (female) vocalists of the era – a deadly yet cool combination of Heart and Aerosmith. Fully remastered, 4,000 word essay by Stephen Allen, previously unpublished photos and 4 bonus tracks recorded live in 1978. Look out too, for a rare special guest appearance by guitarist Brad Whitford - one of only a small handful of extraneous appearances outside the Aerosmith mother ship. Track listing: 'Once Again', 'Shoot To Kill', 'Sing To me', 'Heleana', 'Bring It home', 'Radio Zone', 'Hit The Hardway', 'Read Up', 'Anastasia'. Bonus tracks: (live) 'Shoot To Kill', 'Find It In The City', 'Hit The Hardway', 'Bring It Home'.

1994: 'Please Stand By' CANDY078

FRONTED BY the charismatic Karen Lawrence, 1994: were one, in a long list, of great North American hard rock bands that time and fame overlooked. This, their sophomore album, was released in 1979, Geoff Barton, then writing for Sounds magazine, and now, of course, Editor At Large of Classic Rock, made no secret of his love for 1994’s music and the charms of Karen Lawrence, going so far as to acclaim them as a veritable cracker box of explosive guitar based rock topped off by a stellar performance from one of the best (female) vocalists of the era; a deadly yet cool combination of Heart and Aerosmith. Produced by the dynamic duo of Eddie Leonetti (Angel, Legs Diamond) and Jack Douglas, the album was lavished with fervent praise, attracting rave reviews both at home and abroad. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, four bonus tracks, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, interview with Karen Lawrence and additional previously unseen photos spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.

21 GUNS 'SALUTE' CANDY186

21 GUNS 'SALUTE' CANDY186

21 GUNS 'SALUTE' CANDY186

THERE’S NO getting away from the fact that Thin Lizzy were one of the most influential rock bands of all time. Lead guitarist Scott Gorham was, of course, an essential part of that outfit, carving out a reputation on a string of spectacular albums with his spellbinding guitar playing. After the demise of Lizzy, Scott cooled his engines and spent some time planning for the future, which eventually led to the formation of 21 Guns, a band fit for purpose, boasting both precision and power. Joining Scott in this new recording venture was an all American line-up, consisting of co-writer, bassist and keyboard player Leif Johansen (Phenomena), drummer Mike Sturgis (Asia) and vocalist Thomas La Verdi, who had previously fronted cult AOR unit A440. Partnering with renowned producer and mixing engineer Chris Lord Alge (Meatloaf, Creed), 21 Guns recorded their album in Los Angeles and found the finished product receiving plaudits from virtually everyone who heard it. Originally released in 1992, all would have been well and good if only the grunge revolution wasn’t in full swing. With their melodic and polished sheen 21 Guns were ostracised by some quarters the media for sounding dated and being part of a musical heritage that was now rapidly becoming passé. Of course, with the benefit of hindsight we can clearly see that ‘Salute’ is one of the finest rock albums of any era, allowing Scott Gorham to unleash stupendous guitar work and spectacularly crafted songs. 24-bit remastering, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with the band, enhanced artwork and photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet. TRACK LISTING: 1. Knee Deep 2. These Eyes 3. Walking 4. Marching In Time 5. The Rain 6. Little Sister 7. Pays Off Big 8. Just A Wish 9. Battered And Bruised 10. Jungleland 11. Tell Me 12. No Way Out

ACE FREHLEY 'TROUBLE WALKIN' CANDY217

ACE FREHLEY 'TROUBLE WALKIN' CANDY217

ACE FREHLEY 'TROUBLE WALKIN' CANDY217

“HE WAS THE man with the rocket firing guitar. Dubbed the Space Ace, the coolest member of 70s rock gods Kiss and a man who attracted a legion of fan followers of his own for reasons both good and bad. Ace’s devilishly potent guitar playing lent Kiss a sense of purpose and ambition that elevated them from amusing comic book crusaders to seriously dangerous heavy metal heroes. As with most things in life it couldn’t last. Down but not out, Ace left Kiss in 1982 to pursue a solo career, one that was eagerly anticipated by legions of fans keen to sample his razor sharp riffs and quirky song writing in a brand new setting. With two successful albums recorded under the banner of Frehley’s Comet, Ace retired the band moniker in favour of a solo outing for album #3, the amusingly titled ‘Trouble Walkin’. Issued in late 1989, the album reunited Ace with veteran Kiss Producer Eddie Kramer helping to craft a record of high grade hard rock with all the accoutrements that you might reasonably expect from such a maverick character. With titles such as ‘Shot Full Of Rock’, ‘Five Card Stud’, ‘Hide Your Heart’, ‘2 Young To Die’ and a brilliantly creative cover of ELO’s ‘Do Ya’, Ace unloads salvo upon salvo of lighting fast licks and twisted riffs proving that his talent was as explosive as ever.” Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition, fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology, 16 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork and rare photos. TRACK LISTING: 1. SHOT FULL OF ROCK 2. DO YA 3. FIVE CARD STUD 4. HIDE YOUR HEART 5. LOST IN LIMBO 6. TROUBLE WALKIN' 7. 2 YOUNG 2 DIE 8. BACK TO SCHOOL 9. REMEMBER ME 10. FRACTURED III

AIRBORNE 'S/T' CANDY204

WE HERE AT Rock Candy love to champion the underdog, acts that slipped beneath the radar before disappearing altogether. It’s a murky and sadly depressing world, one occupied by some of the world’s most talented musicians robbed of success by factors outside of their sphere of influence. Airborne were one such act. They were an amazingly proficient band crafting some of the best melodic rock that had ever been crafted yet somehow their fate was sealed when record company politics reared its ugly head. Featuring future producer Beau Hill (Ratt, Winger, Warrant), and signed to Columbia Records, this highly gifted five piece band recorded the debut album under the superior production guidance of Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Rick Springfield, Sammy Hagar), in Los Angeles and London (AIR studios) resulting in one of the era’s most compelling and streamlined records. Comparable with the best work of Styx, Touch and Foreigner the accent was on lovingly constructed songs underpinned with meaty guitar riffs and exquisitely crafted vocals, layered to perfection. Originally issued in 1979, the album attracted a slew of favourable reviews but just when things were looking to take off, including a proposed tour with the Cars, the President of Columbia Records jumped ship leaving the band high and dry with the new regime deeming Airborne as yesterday’s news. It was, in effect, a knockout blow. However we still have their sole album to remind us what could’ve been. Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition, fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology, 12 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, photos and new interview with Beau Hill. TRACK LISTING: 1. THE LADY KNOWS BEST 2. FEEL LIKE LOVIN’ 3. GHOST OF LOVE 4. WASTIN’ MY TIME 5. NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE 6. SOLDIER OF FORTUNE 7. THAT’S WHERE MY LOVE GOES 8. LIFE IN THE CITY 9.

Airrace 'Shaft Of Light' CANDY061

Airrace 'Shaft Of Light' CANDY061

Airrace 'Shaft Of Light' CANDY061

Influenced predominantly by superstar American acts such as Foreigner, Journey, Survivor and Heart came a new breed of British melodic rock band ready and willing to take on the competition with a sense of energy and professionalism that, if lady luck had been smiling in the right direction, might have catapulted them to the same dizzying heights of success. FM, Shy, Tobruk, Lionheart, Strangeways and Grand Prix were the main frontrunners but it wasn’t until Airrace arrived on the scene that the scene gained a real contender for the NWOBMM (New Wave Of British Melodic Metal) throne. Signed to the giant and hugely influential Atlantic label, they headed straight to New York City, recording with one of the top American producers of the day, namely Beau Hill, the man behind platinum albums from Ratt, Warrant, Winger, Kix, Europe and Twisted Sister. ‘Shaft Of Light’, originally released in 1984, is a masterpiece of catchy hook laden rock with tough-guy guitar riffs, quality keyboards and the superior vocals of frontman Keith Murrell, who has one of the greatest rock voices of all time. With Jason Bonham providing a solid swing to the rhythm section it remains a mystery why Airrace failed to connect on a multi-platinum level. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4,000 word story of the making of the album, full involvement by the band, rare photos, two bonus tracks, all spread out over a superb 16 page full colour booklet. Track Listing: 1. I Don’t Care 2. Promise To Call 3. First One Over The Line 4. Open your Eyes 5. Not Really Me 6. Brief Encounter 7. Caught In The Game 8. Do You Want My Love Again 9. Didn’t Wanna Lose Ya 10. All I’m Asking. Bonus Tracks: 1. Not Really Me (demo) 2. She Can’t Come Out (demo)

ALDO NOVA 'S/T' CANDY133

THERE IS nothing as exciting as an album appearing out of nowhere and blowing away the cobwebs. Aldo Nova’s debut album is one such creation; a record so perfectly formed that it has rightfully been compared to the groundbreaking achievements of classic albums by rival masters of melodic hard rock, including Boston, REO Speedwagon and Loverboy. Crammed with ten of the most infectious tracks this side of a Cheap Trick record, it is a work of major importance and one that is still revered to this very day. Originally issued in 1982, it instantly became a best seller, going on to eventually attain a double platinum certificate. With such rich and hugely melodic tracks as ‘Fantasy’, ‘Hot Love’, ‘Ball And Chain’ and ‘Heart To Heart’ it’s no wonder that Aldo’s brand of immaculate AOR attracted instant success. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with Aldo and additional photos spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet. TRACK LISTING: 1. FANTASY 2. HOT LOVE 3. IT’S TOO LATE 4. BALL AND CHAIN 5. HEART TO HEART 6. FOOLIN’ YOURSELF 7. UNDER THE GUN 8. YOU’RE MY LOVE 9. CAN’T STOP LOVIN’ YOU 10. SEE THE LIGHT

ALDO NOVA 'SUBJECT' CANDY134

ALDO NOVA 'SUBJECT' CANDY134

ORIGINALLY RELEASED in 1983, ‘Subject: Aldo Nova’ is a richer and far more intense effort than his debut album. Sure, initial reviews lambasted its ‘difficult’ musical thread and ‘post apocalyptic’ lyrical concept as a tad too highbrow for what he was then perceived as (a melodic hard rocker) but time and distance has invited an altogether more positive reaction. The songs here can be classified as progressive pop rock in the grandest sense, with an emphasis focused on precise arrangements and carefully crafted instrumentation. But the good thing is that Aldo didn’t fully abandon his penchant for finely tuned melodies, crafting a number of superlative track, such as ‘Monkey On Your Back’, ‘Hold Back’, ‘Cry Baby Cry’ and a surprising interpretation of the Coney Hatch classic, ‘Hey Operator’.” 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with Aldo and additional photos spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.

AMBROSIA 'ONE EIGHTY' CANDY239

AMBROSIA 'ONE EIGHTY' CANDY239

AMBROSIA 'ONE EIGHTY' CANDY239

BASED ON AMERICA’s West Coast, Ambrosia began their recording career in the mid 70s as a full blown progressive rock band, brandishing a sound that was clearly influenced by British groups like Procol Harum, Genesis and Caravan. However, with the passing of time, their style was to radically shift towards a more accessible, song based, approach, resulting in brace of melodically inclined albums that elevated the band’s profile considerably. Issued in 1980 on the Warner Bother’s label, ‘One Eighty’ was the band’s fourth album and is now regarded as the high point of their AOR period. As a six man outfit, the approach is studious yet exploratory; leaving enough space for the songs to breathe and be supported by carefully executed multi-layered backing vocals and a soulful r ‘n’ b undertow. Comparable to other premier melodic rock acts of the period such as Toto, Player and Steely Dan, the album benefits hugely from two US top twenty hit singles, ‘You’re The Only Woman’ and ‘Biggest Part Of Me’; both of which showcase front man David Pack’s world class voice. But don’t go running away with the impression that their music is all sweetness and light; tracks such as ‘Ready’, ‘Shape I’m In’, ‘Cryin’ In The Rain’ and the anthemic guitar driven ‘Rock ‘N A Hard Place’ position the band firmly at the epicentre of a some serious and powerful hard rock. Hugely recommended. Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition, fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology,12 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new interview TRACK LISTING: 1.

AMBROSIA 'ROAD ISLAND' CANDY240

AMBROSIA 'ROAD ISLAND' CANDY240

AMBROSIA 'ROAD ISLAND' CANDY240

AMBROSIA STARTED THEIR recording career as a full blown progressive rock band, based in Southern California, but harnessing a sound that was inextricably linked with early 70s British prog rockers. By the eighties the group had morphed into a hugely successful AOR unit, enjoying hit singles and mainstream media exposure very much in the breezy but precise style of Toto, Player and Steely Dan. Of course, the icing on the cake was vocalist David Pack, a man whose voice has been compared to such masters of the art as Bobby Kimball, Michael McDonald and Steve Perry. ‘Road Island’, originally issued in 1982, was Ambrosia’s fifth album and in many ways saw them returning to their progressive roots composing songs blessed with ambitious arrangements. This stylistic volt-face was in part emphasised by their choice of producer, Pink Floyd engineer James Gutherie, with recording partly undertaken in London’s famed Kinks owned Konk Studios. In addition, the album artwork’s illustrative calligraphy (undertaken by Ralph Steadman - one time illustrator of satirical publication Private Eye) was somewhat reminiscent of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’, further emphasising their progressive rock roots. Musically brilliant, the album contains lashings of intelligently conceived tracks, such as ‘For Openers (Welcome Home)’ and the seven minute quasi-prog epic ‘Ice Age’. Other more traditional sounding melodic rock tracks included ‘Still Not Satisfied’ and the Fleetwood Mac reminiscent ‘How Can You Love Me’ - two of the band’s finest compositions.

ANGEL 'HELLUVA BAND' CANDY154

ANGEL 'HELLUVA BAND' CANDY154

ANGEL 'HELLUVA BAND' CANDY154

HELLUVA BAND was Angel’s second album, and a record that took their brand of adventurous pomp-rock to astonishing levels. Unafraid of throwing everything and the kitchen sink into their music, they reached a new level of achievement which allowed every member of the band to excel at their craft. Singer Frank DiMino in particular, unleashes one of the definitive vocal performances of the era, an ostentatious operatic style that thrilled audiences back then and still continues to make its mark to this day. Originally issued in 1976,and produced by British ex pats Derek Lawrence and Big Jim Sullivan in Los Angeles, the albums contains a clutch of 24 Karat showstoppers, including the epic ‘Feelings’, ‘Mirrors’, ‘Pressure Point’ and ‘The Fortune’, a progressive pomp-rock watershed with all the trimmings you might reasonably expect from such a genre defining band. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new interviews with the band, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.

ANGEL 'ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN' CANDY155

ANGEL 'ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN' CANDY155

ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN’ was Angels’ third album and showcases the band expanding their horizons by taking a more melodic hard rock path, but one with hooks and riffs to the fore. Just because the music was harder and edgier, isn’t to say that they had abandoned their progressive roots altogether as Gregg Giuffria’s keyboard work will testify. Produced by seasoned sound man Eddie Kramer (Hendrix, Zeppelin), the songs here display a raw edge that provides guitarist Punky Meadows with a platform to unleash some of his best riffs, whilst vocalist extraordinaire Frank DiMino soars to new operatic heights. Songs such as ‘Can You Feel It’, ‘Cast The First Stone’ and ‘White Lightning’ explode with a sense of urgency that suggests the band were scaling new heights of creativity and feeling all the better for it. Oh, and check out the band’s logo – it reads the same upside down, back to front and in a mirror!” 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, original Japanese mix and superior track sequence, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new interviews with the band, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.

ANGEL 'S/T' CANDY153

AND THEN there was Angel... Meticulously assembled as part of an advanced master plan to create the perfect rock band, Angel’s manifest destiny revolved around two key components: that’s killer hooks and killer looks. Seasoned players all, their arrival on the Los Angeles rock scene certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons in a world crying out for something fresh, original and very different. Based in Los Angeles, and signed to the forward thinking Casablanca label (home to Kiss and Parliament), Angel’s debut album was issued in 1975 and received instant approval from anyone hip to the trip. Musically the focus was firmly on a sort of pioneering seventies mash-up of progressive and melodic hard rock, spearheaded by the extraordinary operatic vocals of Frank DiMino and the wildly dexterous keyboard virtuosity of Gregg Giuffria. Produced by Englishmen Derek Lawrence (Deep Purple, Wishbone Ash) and session guitarist extraordinaire Big Jim Sullivan, the album is treasure trove of surprises and includes several songs that have since gone on to become standard bearers in the star spangled world of melodic-rock mayhem. For categorical proof look no further than the straight-from-the-hip attack of ‘Rock & Rollers’, ‘On And On’ and, arguably the greatest pomp-rock creation of all time, ‘Tower’, a pumping behemoth of a track with keyboards and guitars locked in mortal combat. No home should be without a copy. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new interviews with the band, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.

Angel City 'Face To Face' CANDY111

AN AC/DC connection was crucial to the Angel’s story, in more ways than just musical. It was Bon Scott and Malcolm Young who recommended the band to their record label, Albert Productions, who signed them in 1975. Developing a musical swagger built on the riff hungry shuffle of AC/DC’s finest moments, the band soon carved out a following that sent their domestic releases skyrocketing up the charts. Signing worldwide to Epic Records in 1980, the band’s first foray into the great wide open was ‘Face To Face’, a compilation of the best tracks lifted from two domestic releases. Sure, the music is brittle and deeply indebted to AC/DC’s uncompromising raucous boogie but the twist in the tale is the band’s lyrical component. Front man Doc Neeson’s hypnotic story telling formed the backbone of a style that caught the imagination and propelled them to success on stages from London to Los Angeles. ‘Face To Face’ remains one of the greatest and most enduring albums of the era. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, interview with Doc Neeson and additional photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.

Armored Saint 'Delirious Nomad' CANDY115

Armored Saint 'Delirious Nomad' CANDY115

Armored Saint 'Delirious Nomad' CANDY115

WHEN THE history of Heavy Metal is finally written, Armored Saint will be remembered as a band that should have joined the elite platinum club, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeath and Slayer. Tipped by those who know such things, they displayed both the promise and the talent to springboard them to worldwide success yet, for a number of frustrating reasons, it was not to be. ‘March Of The Saint’, the band’s debut album, was a competent introduction for sure, but was hampered by an arguably incompatible production, and a label not fully versed in the fine art of marketing metal to the masses. Taking matters into their own hands for ‘Delirious Nomad’, they enlisted the help of seasoned producer Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeath) and set to work creating the album that they should have recorded all along. Taped in Los Angeles, the sessions progressed well but not without a degree of angst, particularly when guitarist Phil Sandoval was asked to step aside, reducing the band’s compliment to a quartet. For all that, ‘Delirious Nomad’ remains, for most people, the band’s high point, in a career that has lasted on and off for the best part of thirty years. Max Norman’s production is crisp yet crushing, whilst the band’s attack and energy level is through the roof. That the songs are truly impressive is indeed the icing on the cake. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, 2 bonus tracks, new interview with the band and additional photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
