STEELHEART – 1989 Cassette Sampler I Bought!

Posted in Metal on July 30, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

STEELHEART - cassette sampler - cover - 1989 - 33MO33ILGD

If you are into the hard to find “promotional use only” CDs, vinyl and cassettes and/or STEELHEART then you’ll surely dig this! I recently stumbled upon this STEELHEART cassette sampler, while on a trip to the wonderful city of West Bend, Wisconsin. Released sometime in 1989 via MCA, this cassette sampler was suited to promote the 1990 debut and self-titled album: STEELHEART.

The record store I bought this at is The Exclusive Company; famous for being (as stated on their website) “Americas Oldest Full-line Independent Record Store”. Yes, this grand establishment was loaded with Metal!! The atmosphere and vibe within took me straight back to the 80s; when Metal was king at every record store! By the way, Miljenko Matijevic sang his Metal heart out on that debut STEELHEART album, in my Metal opinion.

This groovy cassette only contains excerpts of the songs on the track list. Who cares if it’s only excerpts? I sure don’t! I love the collectable aspect of this STEELHEART cassette sampler; plus I only paid two dollars for it! $2!! That’s a steal of a Metal deal! Metal be thy name! – Stone

Did You Know: STEELHEART originated from Norwalk, Connecticut.

Rat Pak Records Set To Release LYNCH MOB “Wicked Sensation Reimagined”

Posted in Metal on July 17, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

Lynch Mob 30th Anniversary Edition - promo pic - 2020 - #33MOILNFWI

From Rat Pak Records:

(New York, NY – July 17, 2020) West coast rock veterans Lynch Mob will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their seminal album Wicked Sensation with a special limited print/deluxe anniversary edition of the album. Wicked Sensation Reimagined features re-worked and re-recorded versions of their classic songs and is scheduled for release via Rat Pak Records on August 28, 2020 (also available in Japan via Marquee/Avalon). The twelve-track album, originally released in October 1990, is considered by many to be sacred and perfect the way it is. The idea of rerecording it was not something Oni Logan or George Lynch took lightly.

“The term ‘re-record’ makes me cringe, this is not that,” explains Lynch: “We re-invented the wheel on this record. It’s really a different animal than the original! Fans won’t be disappointed!”

Logan adds: “30 years later here we are celebrating the first song I penned and wrote for the band Lynch Mob, ‘Wicked Sensation’. This one is for the fans that have been there from the beginning, My recommendation is to listen to it loud!!”

The new cover of Wicked Sensation Reimagined was hand drawn by mid-west comic artist Andrew Owens as a tribute to the original cover art. The project was mixed and mastered by Chris “The Wizard” Collier.

With the help of Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders) on bass and Brian Tichy on drums, George Lynch and Oni Logan bring passion and power into these newly created arrangements, take nothing away from the old versions, but bring new light and magic to the material. The songs continue to sound fresh and timeless and will be ready to garner a whole new legion of fans for the next thirty years!

The track listing for Wicked Sensation Reimagined is:

01. Wicked Sensation (reimagined)
02. River of Love (reimagined)
03. Sweet Sister Mercy (reimagined)
04. All I Want (reimagined)
05. Hell Child (reimagined)
06. She’s Evil but She’s Mine (reimagined)
07. Dance of the Dogs (reimagined)
08. Rain (reimagined)
09. No Bed of Roses (reimagined)
10. Through These Eyes (reimagined)
11. For a Million Years (reimagined)
12. Street Fightin’ Man (reimagined)
