Randy Hansen

'S/T' CANDY187 / It's true to say that Randy Hansen is one of the
greatest rock guitarists of our time. Sure, his name and work, like that
of Robin Trower and Frank Marino, has inevitably been associated with
fellow Seattle native Jimi Hendrix, but Hansen is not a mere clone
having recorded one of the most innovative hard rock albums of the early
80s, a record that pretty much set standards for electric guitar
playing. Hansen first came to prominence in the 70s staging a
sophisticated and hugely successful Jimi Hendrix tribute show going
under the handle of Randy Hansen's Machine Gun which attracted the
attention of music producer David Rubinson and film director Francis
Ford Coppola who asked Randy to provide musical interludes for the movie
'Apocalypse Now'. Catching the ear of Capitol Records, Hansen was
signed and given free rein on his debut album, a record that
deliberately steered clear of obvious Hendrix comparisons but showcased a
solid grasp of intelligent song writing an avalanche of guitar
pyrotechnics. Originally issued in 1980, the album is packed with the
sort of hard rock bravado that you might expect from a three piece power
trio but thankfully steers clear of clich�s. His style is fluid and
fast with melody and muscle to the fore yet encouraging cool free-form
jamming in tracks such as 'Champagne And Cocaine', 'Time Won't Stop' and
'Millionaire'. If you like explosive guitar playing you'll love this
album.
24-bit remastering, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new
interview with Randy, enhanced artwork and photos spread out over a 12
page full colour booklet.
Track Listing: 1. Champagne And Cocaine 2. Watch
What You Say 3. Time Won't Stop 4. I Want To Take You Higher 5.
Millionaire 6. Dancin' With Me 7. Don't Pretend.

Reo Speedwagon 'You Can Tune A Piano, But You Can't Tuna Fish'

CANDY176 / Named after a flatbed truck, REO Speedwagon muscled thier
way to ever increasing popularity during the 1970s, releasing album
after album until the tide of their persistence eventually turned into a
gigantic tsunami wave. The 1980 album 'Hi-Fidelity' elevated the band
to superstar status, with new fans convinced that they were an overnight
success. Nothing however could have been further from the truth. The
amusingly titled 'You Can Tune A Piano, But You Can't Tuna Fish',
originally released in 1978, was REO Speedwagon's seventh studio album
and the first to boast a slightly more polished sound. The songs too
were tighter and more precise, leaving little room for the bar-room
extemporisation that had been their mainstay previously. In fact, the
album contained a number of tracks that would later go on to define
REO's clean cut but aggressive style such as 'Roll With The Changes',
'Time For Me To Fly' and 'Say You Love Me Or Say Goodnight'. Part of
this new found blossoming of creativity was due to the innate
combustibility of the relationship between vocalist Kevin Cronin and
guitarist Gary Richrath, two men who would, at this time, define the
band's sound. New bassist Bruce Hall, Cronin's unique vocal style and
Richrath's raunchy guitar work was starting to make a unique
combination. Truly one of their finest albums.
24-bit remastering, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new
interview with Kevin Cronin, enhanced artwork and photos spread out over
a 16 page full colour booklet.
Track Listing: 1. Roll With The Changes 2. Time
For Me To Fly 3. Runnin' Blind 4. Blazin' Your Own Trail Again 5. Sing
To Me 6. Lucky For You 7. Do You Know Where Your Woman Is Tonight? 8.
The Unidentified Flying Tuna Trot 9. Say You Love Me Or Say Goodnight.


Reo Speedwagon 'Nine Lives'

CANDY177 / The title says it all. REO Speedwagon had been knocking out
albums since the early seventies, forever the support band and virtually
unknown outside their American mid-west stomping ground. Naming their
album 'Nine Lives' was a tribute to the fact that they had managed to
record nine albums for EPIC records, a truly amazing feat bearing in
mind that they had yet to secure a hit single or even secure a foothold
in the trendy East and West Coast concert halls. REO Speedwagon's
previous album had signalled a shift in style towards a slightly more
refined sound and 'Nine Lives' continued with that transition. This time
around the sound was more forthright, with Richrath and Cronin really
hitting their stride, reminiscent of the classic vocal/guitar foyle of
say Plant/Page or Tyler/Perry. Tracks such as 'Heavy On Your Love',
'Only The Strong Survive', 'Drop It' and 'Back On The Road Again'
suggested a band on the cusp of something very big indeed. Although
'Nine Lives', originally issued in 1979 and produced by the band and
Kevin Beamish, didn't achieve massive sales it did reposition the band
as vital contenders, something that came to fruition on the following
album 'Hi-Fidelity'. It was also a record that was in synch with the
times; sharp shooting yet melodic hard rock sitting somewhere between
Aerosmith and Cheap Trick with great songs and even greater attitude.
24-bit remastering, 4,000 word essay about the making of the album, new
interview with Kevin Cronin, enhanced artwork and photos spread out over
a 16 page full colour booklet.
Track Listing: 1. Heavy On Your Love 2. Drop It
(An Old Disguise) 3. Only The Strong Survive 4. Easy Money 5. Rock
& Roll Music 6. Take Me 7. I Need You Tonight 8. Meet Me On The
Mountain 9. Back On The Road Again.
