  1. ZAN, ZINNY - Lullabies For The Masses

    ZAN, ZINNY - Lullabies For The Masses

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    “Lullabies For The Masses“ contains nine tracks and therefore, is comparatively short. Absolutely cool is the DEPECHE MODE cover version (!) “It’s No Good“. The material is mostly sleazy hard rock without any fuzz like HARDCORE SUPERSTAR / CRASHDIET. The Swedish veteran of the scene (ZAN CLAN, EASY ACTION, SHOTGUN MESSIAH) sounds a little bit like OZZY in the rather quiet moments but is able to rock like hell as well. Really cool album!

  2. Y & T - Black Tiger +1 (Japan CD, limited edition)

    Y & T - Black Tiger +1 (Japan CD, limited edition)

    €16.00
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    “Black Tiger” was released in 1982 and it’s a truly milestone in the history of melodic Hard Rock. After the introduction of the beautiful instrumental “From The Moon” we’re heading straight towards “Open Fire”. It’s one of the heaviest tracks of Y & T and it’s a true classic. A funny jungle-intro and the legendary title track “Black Tiger” comes out of the speakers. It’s another highlight of the band’s history. Sure, they had a lot of good songs after it, but no one was able to compete with the best tracks of “Mean Streak”, “Black Tiger” or “Earthshaker”. Limited Japanese re-issue with a superb sound quality. Learn More
  3. WRABIT - Wrough & Wready (Japan CD, limited edition)

    WRABIT - Wrough & Wready (Japan CD, limited edition)

    €16.00
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Canada's Wrabit at one time seem poised for a major breakthrough, drawing massive crowds to their shows and creating a buzz in the industry upon signing a deal with MCA Records. It was 1981 when their debut, "Wrough & Wready" hit store shelves and prompted an onslaught of radio support in both their native country and portions of the US. With a journeyman arena rock sound like Journey, Styx, Survivor and Kansas, Wrabit saw reasonable success almost from the start. Brandishing an instantly more aggressive tone than what was typical of the day, the album charges from the starting gates with hook laden track after hook laden track, all with impeccable harmonies. Limited Japanese re-issue with a superb sound. Learn More
  4. WRABIT - West Side Kid (Japan CD, limited edition)

    WRABIT - West Side Kid (Japan CD, limited edition)

    €16.00
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Wrabit's third and final album, "West Side Kid". Issued in 1983, the album marks a clear decline in songwriting for the band. The signature sound has been diluted to mere run-of-the-mill arena rock and it's evident from the opening strains of "Waiting", that this is a band going through the motions. Sounding like a weaker latter day Rainbow, the tracks here just lack the distinctiveness they need to be memorable. There's nothing here offensively bad, but there's nothing here that demands you attention either. In spite of this album's weaknesses, "West Side Kid" is worthy of a second look. ...if anything, to contrast the the two stronger albums that came before it. Limited Japanese re-issue with a superb sound. Learn More
  5. WRABIT - Tracks (Japan CD, limited edition)

    WRABIT - Tracks (Japan CD, limited edition)

    €16.00
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Starting out as a Toronto outfit named Telleman they ended up with the name Wrabit. The music is superb AOR from a time when Canadian acts ruled supreme. Following on from their debut 'Wrough And Wready' 'Tracks' (1982) is a vast improvement with a more dynamic lineup, superb songs, and the talented Paul Gross at the production helm. Precedings kick off with all guns blazing on 'Run For Cover', with guitars and keyboards duelling all over the show. The epic 'Soldier Of Fortune' follows on in grand style, while other songs to show up include the brooding 'See No Evil', and the radio friendly 'Don't Lose That Feeling'. Overall a classic from start to finish – every home needs a copy. Japanese re-issue with a superb sound. Learn More
  6. WILDE, DANNY - The Boyfriend (digitally remastered)

    WILDE, DANNY - The Boyfriend (digitally remastered)

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    US singer and songwriter Danny Wilde began his career during the mid 70s in Los Angeles as a founding member of the power pop band The Quick which only released one album „Mondo Deco“ (1976). Short after Danny landed in another LA power pop outfit called Great Buildings, where he first met his later Rembrandts partner Phil Solem. GB released two albums „Apart From The Crowd“ (1981) and „Extra Epic Everything“ (1982) before splitting up. He got signed by Island Records for his solo debut „The Boyfriend“ (1986), a superb slice of classy mid 80s AOR next to Bryan Adams, Glen Burtnick and Jude Cole. First time ever on CD this is simply a must have for every serious AOR collector ! Bad Reputation records re-issue. Learn More
  7. WILD AMERICA - Old School Cool

    WILD AMERICA - Old School Cool

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Wild America, a new band on the Kivel Records label, made their debut "Gasoline" in 2019, an unapologetic nod to the late ‘80s arena rock sound. Wild America’s sound seems most influenced by that post-glam, pre-grunge period where American hard rock was still catchy and hook-heavy, but didn’t rely on image or songs about T&A quite as much. Fun without being embarrassing, in other words. Think Tora Tora, Tangier and even Tyketto. That’s not a bad sound to draw influence from at all. On the more recent side, Wild America isn’t too far removed from the likes of Tango Down, Outloud and The Defiants and their second strike "Old School Cool" is a save buy for lovers of the US melodic rock style.

  8. WIKKID STARR - Return To Glory

    WIKKID STARR - Return To Glory

    €15.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    WIKKID STARR was originally formed in 2007 by veteran Hollywood vocalist Toney Richards and guitarist Ashlyn Childs but did not launch until 2015. The band has gone through several line-up changes but through it all, they have managed to attain some international success having played in South America in 2015 and releasing their debut album „Sudden Impact“ last year. The follow up „Return To Glory“ is another winner for hair metal / sleaze rock lovers into Poison, L.A. Guns & cohorts. Simple, riff-loaded, loose energetic rock and roll stuffed with dirty guitars, thumping low end, and raw vocals ranting on about sex, fun, rock and roll, and yeah, even a few of the serious things everyone likes to vent about from time to time.

  9. WHITEMAN, STEVE - You're Welcome (digi pack, cardboard sleeve)

    WHITEMAN, STEVE - You're Welcome (digi pack, cardboard sleeve)

    €16.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    KIX frontman Steve Whiteman has his first solo album in a 35+ year career on offer. He has been sitting on these songs for a couple of years now, and without being on the road recently due the pandemic shutdown, Steve finally had the opportunity to do something with them. Whiteman played all the instruments on many of the tracks, with help from his trusted long-time collaborators Jimmy Chalfant on drums, Bob Paré & Dean Cramer on guitars, and Brad Divens on bass. On “You’re Welcome”, Whiteman remains faithful to his roots; this is a rocking album with a timeless sound, a little more classic rock / traditional hard rock oriented than the hairy metal of KIX, but still catchy and fun to have a good time.

  10. VALENTINE, ROBBY - The Magic Infinity +2 (Japan CD, limited edition)

    VALENTINE, ROBBY - The Magic Infinity +2 (Japan CD, limited edition)

    €16.00
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    It was the year of 1993 when Robby Valentine, the multi talented musician released his sophomore 2nd solo CD that should have become one of the top hard rock albums of the 90s (not only in Japan) but hasn't due to decrease in popularity of this genre as well as a poor promotion and the changed musical climate. This album has it all. There isn't single filler; ranging from fast rockers to slow ballads, all the songs carry presence of melody and richness of sound. There's a lot of similarity to the pomp sound of Queen and Styx mixed with AOR overtones. Highlights incl. the eponymous title track, "No Turning Back" and "Mega Man". Without a doubt an ultimate AOR classic of the 90s. Limited Japanese re-issue with a superb soundquality. Learn More
