  1. PETRA - This Means War! (digitally remastered)

    PETRA - This Means War! (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Enter 1987 and things are looking up for Petra. They welcomed John Schlitt on board as new lead vocalist with 1986's 'Back To The Street', a welcome return to form after the electronic dabbling of 'Beat The System'. Their long established AOR sound benefitted from the extra crunch that John's vocal power brought into play, as he provided Head East of old. Hopes were high for this recipe to continue, and they proved well founded. If Petra's goal was to record a consistent batch of powerful AOR then they annihilated the target. The public took to this album in a big way, Schlitt's vocal attack better suited to the more anthemic direction Bob Hartmann was taking the band into. Digitally remastered re-issue. Learn More
  2. PRODIGAL - Electric Eye (2 CDs, digitally remastered)

    PRODIGAL - Electric Eye (2 CDs, digitally remastered)

    €17.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Despite the fact Cincinnati, Ohio based Prodigal was musically ahead of its early to mid-eighties time, it did not always receive similiar accolades as its contemporaries - in the form of recognition and commercial success - and by and large (and sadly) has fallen beneath the radar of the current hard music landscape. One would not be out of line to suggest, for instance, that cohorts from the period such as DeGarmo & Key, Petra and Sweet Comfort Band potentially attracted a wider audience and were household names to the greater extent in comparison. Maybe a notch punchier as their eponymous debut "Electric Eye" (1984) still stands as a superb slice of Christian melodic rock. Digitally remastered re-issue. Learn More
  3. PRODIGAL - Just Like Real Life +4 (digitally remastered)

    PRODIGAL - Just Like Real Life +4 (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Prodigal's swan song was the impressive “Just Like real Life,” (1985) an album filled with so much great music and original concepts that any description will really not do it any justice. Ranging from hard “new wave” to American rock and roll there are ten fantastic tracks here. The vocals are as diverse as the music as three different lead vocalist shared the duties. the most notable is Loyd Boldman and his HUGE voice. Throughout the entire record great riffs and monster walls of sound permeate every song, but the band never could break out of the Christian rock market and this is indeed a crying shame, cause they deserved a much bigger audience. Digitally remastered re-issue incl. 4 bonus tracks. Learn More
  4. RANSOM - Ransom +4 (digitally remastered)

    RANSOM - Ransom +4 (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Ransom was, quite likely, the best of the fully-female fronted Christian bands of the “hair era”. Not only did Lisa Faxon have some incredibly strong vocals, the band, as a whole, was very talented, with guitar player Tony Ortiz being one of the better axe slingers you have probably never heard. The group’s 1991 self-titled debut brings a joining of commercial metal and hard rock that fans of Shout, Stryper, Guardian, Angelica and Holy Soldier will be certain to appreciate. So if second half of the ’80s Lita Ford, Heart, Saraya, etc is your thing, you can’t miss this Ransom’s debut album. You’ll be surprised. And if you already own this record, listen to the crisp remaster and the collectible bonuses. Learn More
  5. SWEET COMFORT BAND - Cutting Edge (digitally remastered, digi pack)

    SWEET COMFORT BAND - Cutting Edge (digitally remastered, digi pack)

    €15.00
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    For the fifth album “Cutting Edge” (1982) SCB were now a classic AOR band with a slick production with the keyboards has taken over the sound of the band and the songs sounds catchier than ever with huge hooklines. Now the sound can be compared to acts such as Toto, Styx, Allies, Le Roux, Dakota and Fortune. “Runnin'To Win” opens the album is a brilliant way, this is a pure AOR-heaven with fantastic hooks, melodies and the chorus is awesome and if you remember the band Fortune (then you know how fantastic this is. “What Have You Got” is another AOR-cracker with stunning keyboards and the chorus is outstanding with impressive harmonies and there is much more to follow of the same calibre - pure class !.

  6. TWENTY TWENTY - Twenty Twenty (digitally remastered)

    TWENTY TWENTY - Twenty Twenty (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    TWENTY TWENTY was a band from the mid 80s CCM field that somehow managed to be appreciated by secular listeners. Twenty Twenty's self-titled debut from 1985 was produced by White Heart's Billy Smiley, so expect a pristine sound. The band mixed an interesting blend of pomp AOR with cool new wave melodies, all wrapped by a very Eighties arsenal of keyboards, synthesizers, synclavier and electronic drums. Some tracks come out pretty Hi-Tech but with substance. There's a really fine guitar work by Roscoe Meek, especially creating a sustained, clean rythmic riffs, and we have the excellent vocalist Ron Collins who released a stupendous AOR solo album in the Nineties. First time ever on CD - A MUST HAVE!! Learn More
  7. WHITE HEART - Hotline +2 (digitally remastered)

    WHITE HEART - Hotline +2 (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Dann Huff left the band shortly after the release of "Vital Signs" to pursue his dream of being a studio musician, and recommended his high school friend, Gordon Kennedy as his replacement for the next White Heart album, "Hotline". Later, in 1985, David Huff left the band to pursue other interests as well, including touring with Michael W. Smith. Eventually he would join his brother Dann to form the hard rock band Giant. "Hotline" follows the paths of the previous two albums, highlights icl. the Toto like "Jerusalem" and the amazing "In His Name", which are among their best songs ever.

  8. WHITE HEART - Vital Signs +1 (digitally remastered)

    WHITE HEART - Vital Signs +1 (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Whiteheart was turned down by every major Christian label until Chris Christian heard their demo and signed them to Home Sweet Home Records and gave them their first record deal. By the time they released their third album on Home Sweet Home Records, they were selling in excess of 250,000 albums. After their self-titled debut album was released in 1982, singer Steve Green left the band and was replaced by Scott Douglas. The band released its second album, "Vital Signs", in 1984. Dann Huff left the band shortly afterward and recommended his high school friend, Gordon Kennedy as his replacement and Scott Douglas was added as Huff's replacement as lead vocalist. Digitally remastered re-issue incl. 1 bonus track. Learn More
  9. WHITE HEART - White Heart +1 (digitally remastered)

    WHITE HEART - White Heart +1 (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    This was White Heart’s introductory album. Formed in 1982 by two members of Bill Gaither’s group they decidedly recorded and performed a more upbeat style of music. Lead by the extraordinary pipes of vocalist Steve Green and the legendary brothers Dave and Dann Huff, both of who should need no introduction; this is one of the best Christian rock debuts ever recorded. Keep in mind, Toto were at the height of their powers when this record was released and it's clear where the group took its inspiration. Spine tingling really and tracks like 'Hold On' and 'Everyday' will make any 'west coast' fan swoon with White Heart standing toe to toe with the best of Maxus, Pages and any other band of similar ilk you care to mention.
