Alice Cooper's 1991 album, “Hey Stoopid”, will be reissued on September 23.

Alice’s 19th studio release was produced by Peter Collins, famed for his work with Rush and Queensyrche, among many others.
The album featured three hit singles: the title track, "Love's A Loaded Gun" and "Feed My Frankenstein"

The 2013 reissue will feature three bonus tracks, including "Hey Stoopid (Beba edit)", "It Rained All Night", and a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Fire."

Joining Alice on the album were drummer Mickey Curry, guitarist Stef Burns and bassist Hugh McDonald,
along with a series of special guests including Slash, Joe Satriani, Vinnie Moore and Steve Vai,
Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars (who co-wrote "Die For You"), plus Ozzy Osbourne providing backing vocals

Album Notes
Personnel: Vinnie Moore (guitar); Tim Lehner (keyboards); John "JD" DeServio (bass instrument); Van Romaine (drums).Audio Mixer: Paul Northfield.For much of the early 21st century, six-string shred king Vinnie Moore focused primarily on serving as a replacement for Michael Schenker in UFO (issuing several albums). But as a result, his solo career suffered, as only a single solo studio release materialized (2001's Defying Gravity). That all changed, however, in 2009, with the arrival of his seventh solo album overall, To the Core. Not as over-the-top as his earlier solo outings, Moore now focuses on the importance of creating guitar-driven melodies (and sounding like a not-so-far distant cousin of Joe Satriani). In fact, in quite a few instances, Moore seems more concerned with creative a strong and sturdy groove ("Transcendence") rather than just soloing the night away. Elsewhere, you'll find the Saga-esque album opener, "Fly," the bluesy "Jigsaw," and the hard-rocking "Into the Open." As a result, Vinnie Moore can now be referred to as a "restrained shredder." ~ Greg Prato

UFO - Showtime Concert Film Out Now On State-Of-The-Art HD-DVD


UFO "Showtime" concert film out now on state-of-the-art HD-DVD
Top-quality bonus material *
Release dates - Germany: February 22nd 2008
Europe: February 25th 2008
USA: April 8th 2008

With the recording of their live DVD, Showtime, at the Pumpwerk in
Wilhelmshaven on 13 May 2005, the British band UFO repeated music history,
so to speak. For the second time since 1979, when the group brought out
their legendary live album, Strangers In The Night, the band members left
no doubt that their shows count among the best in the whole rock circus.
Then as now, press and fans were unanimously impressed, and the band
established a reputation that remains unchallenged to this day: UFO are
unbeatable live! Now their sensational film document, Showtime, has been
scheduled for release on state-of-the-art HD-DVD, including, along with
the extras from the regular release, additional bonus material, an "on the
fly" menu which can be operated while you are viewing the film, and
exciting picture-in-picture interviews. The Showtime HD-DVD will be out on
25 February 2008 (Germany: 22 February 2008, US: April 8th 2008).

Viva Carlos

Vinnie Moore is featured on "Viva Carlos!"
A celebration that brings together incredible and influential guitarists
Eric Johnson, Robben Ford, Eric Gales, Frank Gambale, Albert Lee, Pat Martino Mike Stern and Jeff Richman,
each paying tribute to rock guitar icon Carlos Santana.

Vinnie plays, in my opinion, out of his skin, with a sensitive interpretation of this great track, 'SE A CABO'

Go out and buy this album just for this track alone - FANTASTIC
For more details and a sound samples
| Great Review here

 

Found this posted on Vinnie's facebook fanpage with the following description

"I have received flowers one time in my whole life.
Imagine my surprise when I open the card to find they're from Carlos Santana. How cool is that?

Matthias Mineur writes in the liner notes about UFO's double live disc Showtime, "The line-up that worked on this CD in the summer of 2005 is the strongest the band has seen in a long time and has their critics' and colleagues' mouths watering: Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass), Paul Raymond (keyboards), Vinnie Moore (guitar) and Jason Bonham (drums) - a team that stands for enthusiasm, compositional talent (as their current studio release "You Are Here" goes to prove) and technical accomplishment. Vinne Moore is a guitar hero in the classic sense. His intricate style, a successful mix of rock, progressive elements, blues and fusion, has impressed audiences since 1987 with his solo debut "Mind's Eye". Interestingly, it's been 27 years since the double live "Strangers In The Night" took the rock world by storm. So here we are again in 2005, Mogg, Way, Raymond, Moore and Bonham, a live CD featuring all the great tracks from "Strangers In The Night" plus the creme de la creme from the new "You Are Here" CD. who could ask for more... Showtime, UFO rocks!"

Vinnie is also credited as playing on Robert Berry's - Prime Cuts album.

I am only guessing but I would think this is due to Vinnie playing Rhythm guitar tracks on Subdivisions and Robert includes 'Different Strings' from that same album on his 'Prime Cuts' release.

Moore Mogg/Way, the 1st classic release of 2004!, March 5, 2004
WOW! What a killer CD. Vinnie Moore is a phenominal guitarist.
This version of UFO is incredible and I can't wait for the tour!
But it's hard to look at this as UFO. Since UFO reformed with the "classic" lineup in 1995 for Walk on Water, mainstays Phil Mogg and Pete Way have held UFO together for a couple more studio albums in the late 90's, as well as some dou collaberations of Mogg/Way with guitarists George Bellas and Jeff Kollman. Every single one of these releases from UFO and Mogg/Way had there moments and are exceptional. Especially the Mogg/Way efforts. Each guitarist, particularly Kollman shine, and Chocolate Box (2nd Mogg/Way CD) was killer. Phil Mogg
even released a solo album (in all by name as $ign of 4 - Dancing with St. Peter), with Jeff Kollman on guitar just last year, and that proved to be the best of the bunch. Which brings me full circle to UFO's lastest released, You Are Here.

It is the strongest effort since UFO's 1995 comeback Walk on Water.
Vinnie Moore shines, and while it has it's UFO "classic" moments, it can be viewed as another Mogg/Way collaberation with Vinne Moore on guitar. I do not mean that as a put down to this release, or the band members. Songs like When Daylight Goes to Town, Mr. Freeze, Black Cold Coffee and Jello Man all have that UFO inspired guitar rock sound, and really I do not miss Schenker at all when I hear Vinnie Moore! There are some middle of the road rockers, like Call Me, Wild One, Give it Up, and The Spark That is Us. Very Mogg/Way sounding, but very excellent songs. There are even a few ballads in Sympathy, and Sleeping Away and Baby Blue. All in all great songs, and Vinnie Moore
is a Guitar God. Phil Mogg is in fine voice throughout the whole CD. Phil Mogg has a new rhythm partner in Jason Bonham on drums, who lays the beat down. And returning to the "classic" lineup is Paul Raymond on keys. This is truly a wonderful effort, and it is up there with Walk on Water. It is the guys best effort since that release. I really do hope to hear more from this lineup. The first enjoyable release of 2004, and a top contender for Top-10 of the year.

Vinnie Moore has set new standards in high performance guitar playing during his 20 year career. The highlights of his progressive compositions and phenomenal solos are included in this riveting CD package - Collection: The Shrapnel Years. Moore writes, "Seems like just yesterday I was on a plane to San Francisco to record my first record. One second I was a 20 year old kid from a small east coast town practicing guitar all day long, and then suddenly I am recording the soundtrack for a Pepsi TV ad, releasing a solo CD, winning awards in guitar magazines, and doing guitar seminars all over the world. It was just a magical time for me. At 21 I found myself in a position where I was an inspiration to others and this was simply a dream come true. Throughout my career, hearing that I have been a positive influence has remained one of my biggest rewards."

Vinnie Moore's Defying Gravity is a stunning instrumental barrage of outstanding musicianship and is rooted deeply in the progressive neo-classical style that generated a legion of loyal fans. Joined by former Journey drummer Steve Smith (Journey, Vital Information), bassist Dave LaRue (The Dregs) and keyboardist David Rosenthal (Rainbow). Moore reconnects with the music that established him as a guitar virtuoso.

Defying Gravity
by Vinnie Moore
Vinnie Moore certainly comes from the school that is labeled "guitar hero." This album is, at times, a prime example of that genre, featuring elements that get a bit noodley and over the top. However, Moore really does a nice spin on the genre. For one thing, even some of his neo-classical moments, which can get a bit stodgy in other hands, often have a fun-loving texture to them. He also wanders from that direction from time to time. Indeed, much of the latter half of the album is made up of fun pieces, many with a Latin influence. This breath of fresh air into the world of the guitar virtuoso should make this album appeal even to those of us who are not fans of the guitar player as god style of music.

-----------------------------------

The Maze teams Vinnie Moore's guitar playing (flashy, fast, very jazzy yet still hard rock heavy metal) with the legendary keyboard talents of Tony MacAlpine. The instrumental tracks feature plenty of Moore's trademark mega-soloing (witness "Cryptic Dreams", "Eye Of The Beholder" and "King Of Kings") over contemporary progessive, and neoclassical grooves. The Maze also showcases the muscular bass guitar of Dave LaRue, and quality drumming courtesy of Shane Galass. In the tradition of "Mind's Eye", The Maze offers futher evidence that Vinnie Moore is here to shred.

-------------------------------

Written and produced by Vinnie Moore (with production assistance from engineer Paul Hammingson), Out Of Nowhere is the guitarist's fourth CD and continues the hard rock sound found on "Meltdown" This time Moore included two acoustic songs as well as riff-a-plenty tunage such as "Time Traveler", "770 Days" and "Losing Faith". Recorded at Kajem Studios just outside Philadelphia (with additional work done at Moore's new home studio), the album, once again all instrumental, travels the outer limits of song writing. From the crushing opening riff of "With The Flow", to the smooth, almost angelic styling of "Echoes", to the all-out jam of "Thunderball" and his twang thang, "VinMan's Brew", the album plays like an old friend. Propelled by a powerful compositional framework that is second to none, Out Of Nowhere is lifted by Moore's unique understanding of harmonic expression. A lively and emotive balance to his technical mastery, songs like "From Now On", "She's Only Sleeping", and "Winter Sun" showcase the player's sensitivity and skill. The results are inviting.

Time Odyssey was Vinnie Moore's 1988 follow up to "Mind's Eye" and was released on the Squawk label (a division of PolyGram Records), which also released the amazing "Maximum Security" by Tony MacAlpine. This release ontinues the neo-classical metal backdrop of his first album, while keeping shred guitar fans happy with cuts like "Prelude/Into The Future" and "Race With Destiny". Moore pays homage to the Beatles and George Harrison on Time Odyssey with a wang bar enhanced version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". The piece "April Sky" is classically influenced as Moore takes notes and inspiration from Bach's "Air On A G String" and "Piano Concerto No. 5 (Second Movement). Keyboard player Jorden Rudes also contributes in the songwriting department on "Prelude", "Into The Future" and "Message In A Dream".

Mind's Eye was Vinnie Moore's first instrumental solo record for the Shrapnel label, and is a true shredfest from top to bottom. When the CD was first released in 1986, it helped Moore to win Guitar Player Magazines readers poll Best New Talent award. Mind's Eye, which also features Tony MacAlpine on keyboards, the great Tommy Aldridge (Ozzy Osborne, Pat Travers, Whitesnake) on drums and Andy West (The Dregs) on bass, has Moore in his neo-classsical mode on tunes such as "In Control" and the standout track "Hero Without Honor".

Minds Eye Mini-LP box

A mini LP is a CD version of something that was originally released as a 12" (12 inch) vinyl LP.

In many cases the packaging is superior to, or at least more elaborate than the majority of vinyl releases. The reason being that many follow-up vinyl releases were inferior to the first vinyl release (or at least lacked some of the extras found in the first release - such as postcards, posters, lyric sheets etc).

They are often referred to as "cardboard sleeves" and "paper sleeves" being made exclusively from paper or cardboard (other than the CD of course).  Other names and abbreviations include: "jpn lp sleeve cd" and "kami-jacket". (The last of these I guess is an indication that they are held in high esteem by many who collect them.)

They are also known as "LP replicas" as they tend to exactly replicate the original packaging of the first vinyl release.

LPs (short for Long Play) are still made today.  They are made from vinyl (acetate, whatever) and are placed flat on a device known as a turntable.  This rotates the disc at about 33 and 1/3 revolutions per minute.  A needle (or stylus) is placed on the "vinyl" and the vibrations detected by this are translated into an electronic "pulse" which in turn is converted and amplified into sound waves.

1985 - Vicious Rumors - Soldiers Of The Night

 

VR PRESS RELEASE - Recruiting the temporary services of Vinnie Moore

 

This posted on Vinnie Moore's website

I was featured in Mike Varney's "Spotlight" column in Guitar Player Magazine in 1985. He and I immediately began discussing my doing a CD for his record label, Shrapnel. One day, he called me to ask if I would be interested in playing on a record he was doing with a metal band called Vicious Rumors. After hearing their demo tape, I was interested in recording with the band. I thought that they had some great songs, the majority of which were written by talented songwriter and leader of the band, Geoff Thorpe. They also had a great singer named Marc Tate, but Vicious Rumors was definately, for the most part, the brainchild of Geoff. And so, Geoff and I talked a couple of times, and I then headed out to San Francisco with my guitar to check it out.

When I got there, we began rehearsing the tunes with new singer Gary St. Pierre to get ready for the recording. I lived with Geoff and his girlfriend where their living room floor would be my bed for four months!

I was really excited about the band at first but unfortunately, my feeling started to change. I was originally told that this process would take three to four weeks, but things began to drag out for months, and I became more and more impatient. (Patience is not one of my strong points! The Italian in me, I guess.) Then again, living on the floor is not something that makes one feel very patient anyway.
Besides things taking longer than anticipated, the band was beginning to grow in a different direction than was displayed on their demo, which I had really liked. I was not moving with them and so at some point, I realized that it inevitably was not going to work out as a permanent thing.

I haven't talked about this record for a long time. Many people feel that this is because I quit the band and I have a problem with Geoff or the other members or something. This is not true! Yes there was a little turbulence for a while, but I have no bad feelings for anyone and still consider everyone a friend.The truth of the matter is that I just wasn't happy with my playing on the record. It was not by any means an accurate representation of my playing at the time and I was actually kind of embarrased because of this. I had about two hours to record all of my rhythm guitar parts, and three hours to record all of the leads and melodies. I had high hopes and was in the end disappointed that I just didn't reach my potential on the record.

It is what it is, though. I was really young, 19 or 20 at the time, and it was a great learning experience for me. It was inevitable that I would go on to pursue a solo career. Vicious Rumors made some great records after I left, and I really believe that we were both better off in taking our own paths.

Magna Carta records has released 'Guitar Greats' - Volume 1 and is now ready in stores

Here is the OFFICIAL album page

Relentless, over-driven fuzz guitar can add weight and glue to a tricky arrangement, especially one that fluctuates in terms of feel, time signature, and dynamics. Case in point: “Time Crunch”, from Jordan Rudess’ album Rhythm of Time. It’s precisely as the title suggests, a crunching of the numbers. The track could have been a mere series of exercises in manipulation of the basic quarter/eighth note tallies—were it not for Jordan’s overriding sense of melody. And you must check out the riveting solo by Vinnie Moore at 4:43: the Thinking Man’s flailing guitar! It’s unpredictable as all get out and pushes the composition along to its dramatic conclusion.

CD 1

01 RUSH - 2112: Overture/The Temples Of Syrinx
Progressive Canadian power trio Rush are iconic rock legends with a career spanning well over thirty years. Consistently pushing musical boundaries, the group's epic 1976 album '2112' was something of musical masterpiece. Guitarman Alex Lifeson pushed his instrumental finesse to the very limit on the record's 20 minute-plus opener; a chilling, evocative piece that reflected on the concept of musical freedom of expression in an Orwellian '1984' type world. www.rush.com

02 MOTÖRHEAD - Limb From Limb Original Motörhead guitarslinger Fast 'Eddie' Clarke made his mark with the band on their first four records. The original Motörhead were creators of an aggressive, gutsy anti-social grind. Produced by Jimmy Miller (of Rolling Stones fame), the band's second album primarily focused on what was to be the classic 'head sound. A lethal combination of traditional Hard Rock, punk and charismatic, no-frills rock 'n' roll. www.imotorhead.com

03 RICHIE SAMBORA/BRUCE FOSTER - Southern Belle
A much sought after cut featuring Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora (recorded long before today's celebrity superstar found fame and fortune with the stadium-selling New Jersey rockers). As an 18-year-old guitar prodigy, Sambora was recognised by local bandleader Bruce Foster after an impromptu jam session and recruited into his group Shark Attack. Besides fulfilling guitar duties on 'Southern Belle' this extremely rare track also features Richie on lead vocals. www.bonjovi.com

04 DIAMOND HEAD - Am I Evil? (Live) A true bone-crunchingly classic riff from the hands of guitarist Brian Tatler. When Diamond Head hit the rock scene in the early 1980s they were hailed as the new Led Zeppelin. The seminal 'Am I Evil?' went on to be a true rock anthem in the ‘90s when rock giants Metallica took the bull by the horns and paid tribute to their musical heroes, frequently including it in their live set and laying it down on tape on their 1998 covers album 'Garage Inc.'. www.diamond-head.net

05 DIO - As Long As It's Not About Love Considered one of the best singers in rock, former Rainbow/Black Sabbath vocalist Ronnie James Dio has recorded with some of the greatest guitarmen in rock (Ritchie Blackmore and Toni Iommi to name but two). Craig Goldie is no exception. Having taken on the illustrious Heavy Metal gauntlet laid down by the former on early Dio releases, he reappeared with his mentor on the singer's 2000 conceptual masterpiece 'Magica', ably reaffirming his rock 'n' roll credentials. www.ronniejamesdio.com

06 SAVATAGE - Jesus Saves
Led by brothers Criss and Jon Oliva, Florida-based US progressive Metallers Savatage were very much in vogue in rock circles in the early 1990s (along with contemporaries such as Queensryche). Forging a unique brand of heavily operatic-inspired melodic hard rock the group reached their peak on 1991's 'Streets...', an epic, conceptual affair featuring the perfect marriage between intensive guitar and heart-wrenching vocals. www.savatage.com

07 PAUL KOSSOFF - Molten Gold (Live) An extremely talented musician whose life was duly cut short by a drug-related death, Free/Back Street Crawler guitar legend Paul Kossoff is up there with the likes of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Showcasing a fluid, bluesy melodic lead he drove Free to superstardom in the early 1970s before forming his own full-time solo outfit featuring a number of his former bandmates as well as renowned Yes drummer Alan White. www.allrightnow.com

08 BERNIE MARSDEN - Love That Burns Something of a musical journeyman, former Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden played heavily on the blues back in the early 1980s when he made a mark for himself in the early incarnation of David Coverdale's hard rockin' heroes, before turning his hand to fronting his own band, Alaska. In more recent years he's settled down, exploring a reflective rootsy blues-based direction with a batch of superb solo albums showcasing his own superior guitar-work. www.berniemarsden.com

09 JEFF HEALEY BAND - The Damage Is Done Canadian Jeff Healey has successfully bridged the dividing line between traditional blues purism and the commercial AOR appeal of stadium rock. Currently combining a classic jazz finesse with his trademark cutting style of hammering rhythm 'n' blues this particular master of the Fender Strat continues to bend the strings in differing directions, demonstrating an uncanny instrumental prowess. www.jeffhealey.com

10 JOHN NORUM - Solitude Swedish guitarist John Norum contributed a major part to the worldwide success of Scandinavian rockers Europe. Following his initial departure from the group in the late 1980s he worked with some of the biggest names in rock (Don Dokken and Glenn Hughes to name but a few). After numerous solo releases (including his latest offering 'Optimus') in 2004 he got back together with his ex bandmates for a reunion album and successful world tour. www.johnnorum.com

11 SANTANA - Gypsy/Grajonca The supreme master of instrumental Latino rock guitar, Mexican-born Carlos Santana has been doin' the business with his own band, Santana, since the heady days of the Woodstock Festival in the late 1960s. Effortlessly fusing melodic soul and sheer technical sass he continues to be an accomplished performer who has constantly refreshed himself by collaborating with some of the biggest names in contemporary rock and pop. www.santana.com

12 LESLIE WEST - Woman Long Islander Leslie West came to prominence as the lead guitarist of hard rock outfit Mountain in the early 1970s on the back of the classic 'Nantucket Sleighride' album. But the group failed to deliver commercially, leaving West to embark on a lengthy solo career (during which he hooked up with Cream bassist Jack Bruce). Most recent offerings have shown that his tuneful style and rock solid approach have barely changed over the years. www.mountaintheband.com

13 VINNIE MOORE

The Maze Establishing himself as one of the most important guitarmen to emerge from the virtuoso instrumentalist school of rock of the mid 1980s, Vinnie Moore has, to date, issued a number of hard hitting studio albums (as well as more recently treading the boards with Brit hard rock legends UFO). 1999's 'Maze' record (with its lengthy title track) showcased a return to the neo-classical roots that essentially defined this particular rock genre. www.vinniemoore.com

CD 2

01 RAINBOW - Stargazer Ex Deep Purple member Ritchie Blackmore once declared himself 'God'!. For those who caught his own band, Rainbow, live in the late 1970s (with Ronnie James Dio on vocals and Cozy Powell on drums) that claim was indisputable. Set against a fantastical backdrop of fire-breathing dragons and demonic wizards the epic 'Stargazer' (lifted from arguably the best ever hard rock record) featured the man in black at his peak. www.blackmoresnight.com

02 MAGNUM - Two Hearts Six-string songsmith Tony Clarkin provided (and still provides) the heart of the Magnum sound alongside long-time partner-in-rhyme Bob Catley. The home-grown Birmingham rockers first hit the scene in the mid-1970s but it wasn't until 1985 with the release of the benchmark 'On A Storyteller's Night' album that they finally hit the big time, both critically and commercially. The success of the album went a long way to landing the band a major label deal with Polydor Records. www.magnumonline.co.uk

03 GARY MOORE - Parisienne Walkways
The hallmark 'Parisienne Walkways' provided the melodic, hard-edged musical blueprint for Belfast-born Gary Moore's later blues career with its classic sustained note live solo section. It was originally recorded with fellow Irish rockers Phil Lynott on vocals/bass and Brian Downey on drums (for 1978's 'Back On The Streets'), so it was really a Thin Lizzy number minus second guitarman Scott Gorham. www.gary-moore.com

04 TEMPEST - Turn Around Only in existence between 1972 to 1974, Tempest released just two albums (1973's 'Tempest' and 1974's 'Living In Fear') but featured the cream of British prog/jazz rock. Individual band members Allan Holdsworth, Mick Clarke, Ollie Halsall, Jon Hiseman and Paul Williams would go on to influence the likes of Eighties Metal stringers like Eddie Van Halen and 'nu-metal' Prog rock superstars like Dream Theater. www.therealallanholdsworth.com

05 JETHRO TULL - Aqualung (Live) Despite always living in the shadow of Mick Abrahams (Tull's formative guitar henchman) Martin Barre performed on the group's definitive early album releases (1971's 'Aqualung' opus making the boldest statement). As the veteran group's lead man in partnership with flute wielding singer Ian Anderson, since 1969, his playing has provided Jethro Tull with the brazen energy to continually deliver on record and on stage for well over 30 years.
www.j-tull.com

06 COMPANY OF SNAKES - Lovehunter (Live) An integral part of the inaugural 'definitive' line-up of David Coverdale's Whitesnake, slide guitarman Micky Moody provided the backbone to the band's early blues sound. Re-uniting again with partner Bernie Marsden in 1999 as Company Of Snakes alongside vocalist Stefan Bergren, keyboardist Don Airey and drummer John Lingwood the ensuing live album 'Here They Go Again' set out to capture the blues spirit of the early classic 'snake sound. www.classicwhitesnake.com

07 PETER GREEN SPLINTER GROUP - Albatross Regarded by many as the greatest white blues guitarist ever, former Fleetwood Mac man Peter Green has had something of a turbulent career, riddled by drug abuse and paranoia. Initially hanging up his guitar in the mid 1970s (rumours abound that he worked as a hospital orderly, bartender and gravedigger during this time) he eventually got his head back together and came out of the closet in the early 1990s, resurrecting many of his early blues rock classics. www.fleetwoodmac.net

08 ULI JON ROTH - Burning Wheels Turning As part of the early incarnation of German Metal giants The Scorpions during the 1970s, lead guitarist Uli Jon Roth ultimately laid the groundwork for the neo-classical Metal sound. Upon leaving the group in 1978 the classically refined Roth began a rather erratic solo career that saw him expand his style in a more progressive direction with his own band Electric Sun, a psychedelic power trio fashioned around the image of his idol, Jimi Hendrix. www.ulijonroth.com

09 NAZARETH - Hair Of The Dog
Self-produced by Spanish-born guitarist Manny Charlton, Nazareth's fifth studio opus 'Hair Of The Dog' confirmed the braveheart Scots rockers as a major global attraction (chalking up double platinum sales in the US alone). A defining hard rock record, 'Hair Of The Dog' went on to influence legendary ‘80s rock icons Guns 'N' Roses who laid down their own version of the title track for a covers album entitled 'The Spaghetti Incident'. www.nazarethdirect.co.uk

10 MARTY FRIEDMAN - Lust For Life Former Megadeth lead guitarist Marty Friedman made his name with the thrash icons during their biggest period of popularity in the early 1990s. Despite not having the same elusive commercial profile as Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Friedman (who is a big fan of ethnic and new age music) has endeavoured to pursue a successful solo career as an outlet for prog-inspired six string experimentation rather than over the top Metallic excess. www.martyfriedman.com

11 PAT TRAVERS - How Many More Times Canadian blues/rock guitarist Pat Travers paid his dues by playing in bar bands around Quebec. Heading over to the UK he signed to Polydor and soon became a firm live favourite at the Reading Festival on the back of his 1976 debut. By 1979 he'd hit the big time in the US with the new Travers Band (featuring Tommy Aldridge on the skins and co-guitarist Pat Thrall) a lethal combination that has its modern day successor in today's Pat Travers Power Trio. www.pattravers.com

12 PAUL GILBERT - I Am Satan A guitar hero incapable of taking himself too seriously, former Racer X/Mr. Big Metal guitar virtuoso Paul Gilbert, a prodigy of the Los Angeles Guitar Institute Of Technology, is now an established solo artist with an especially huge following in Japan. Firmly putting the emphasis on solid songwriting, recent releases such as 2002's 'Burning Organ' display a talent for creative restraint unlike most of his contemporaries in the shredding commune. www.paulgilbert.com

13 OLIVER-DAWSON SAXON - The Eagle Has Landed (Live)
Saxon's relentless bent for serving up well crafted 1980s-style hard rock gained them one of the most endearing and well earned reputations in Heavy Metal. Affectionately known as the 'Barnsley Big Teasers', their popularity had soared by the release of their 1983 album 'Power & The Glory'. In 2000 Saxon Metal legend Graham Oliver (one of the new batch of six stringers who emerged from the N.W.O.B.H.M.) got back to basics with original Saxon bassist Steve Dawson. www.oliver-dawson-saxon.com

CD 3

01 LYNYRD SKYNYRD - Free Bird The definitive Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd were, and still are, a law unto themselves. Guitarist Gary Rossington (who originally began his musical career as a drummer) one of the group's founding (and surviving members following a tragic plane crash that killed most of the band in 1977) epitomised their boozy, barroom-brawling attitude. Their self-titled debut album was raw, totally uncompromising and contained one of the most popular rock classics ever laid to tape. www.lynyrdskynyrd.com

02 ROBIN GEORGE - Heartline After a touring stint with vintage Brit rockers Magnum, British guitar pin-up Robin George was lauded in the press as the UK's answer to Billy Squier. Tipping his hat to artists like Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams, his 1984 debut solo album 'Dangerous Music' was a class effort filled to the brim with some superb musicianship, especially Pino Pallidino's bass playing. It produced the single 'Heartline', a firm rock club anthem. www.robingeorge.co.uk

03 PETER FRAMPTON - Baby I Love Your Way (Live) One of the biggest arena rock stars of all-time, former Humble Pie singer/guitarman Peter Frampton already had an illustrious musical pedigree before he went solo in the mid-‘70s. Originally lifted from one of the biggest selling live rock records of all time (1976's 'Frampton Comes Alive!') this classic cut elevated him to superstar status. Two decades on, Frampton decided to ‘come alive' once again thanks to a stirring 75 minute set recorded at Detroit's Pine Knob Music Theatre. www.frampton.com

04 THUNDER - Love Walked In (Live)
Re-establishing trademark hard rock virtues, bluesy prime groovers Thunder continue to fly the flag for traditional Brit rock. Inspired by rock stalwarts like Free and Bad Company, guitarist Luke Morley and vocalist Danny Bowes initially started playing together as school mates, cementing their songwriting potential in the early 1990s thanks to a host of homegrown hit singles and sold-out UK tours. www.thunderonline.com

05 YNGWIE MALMSTEEN - Mistreated
Swedish guitar maestro Yngwie Malmsteen has always personified personality and is arguably one of the most accomplished six-stringers around. His love of classical composers such as Paganini, Bach and Beethoven combined with a reverence for classic rock guitar legends like Ritchie Blackmore (a major influence as exposed on this cover of the classic Burn number) and Jimi Hendrix provided him with the inspiration to re-write the bible of HM guitar. www.yngwie.org

06 BIG JIM SULLIVAN - Stairway To Heaven Big Jim Sullivan is reputedly the most sought-after session guitarist in Britain, with a list of 1000 chart entries to his name (including The Kinks 'You Really Got Me'). He is also allegedly credited with being the first musician to have ever used a fuzzbox in the UK, while accompanying P.J. Proby. On 'Mr. Rock Guitar' Sullivan covers a host of killer tunes from such rock luminaries as Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Free and, of course, Led Zeppelin. www.bigjimsullivan.com

07 IMPELLITTERI - End Of The World High-speed neo classical six stringer Chris Impellitteri is, in technical terms, one of the very best. With a style somewhat reminiscent of Scandinavian guitar god Yngwie Malmsteen, he (like his illustrious Swedish counterpart) first came to prominence working with former Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet in 1987. Still a largely self-financed underground guitar virtuoso, Impellitteri still plies his magic, conjuring up well-crafted traditional power Metal. www.rapture.net/impellitteri

08 MARILLION - Easter (Live) Much underrated guitarman Steve Rothery has trodden the boards with Marillion since their 1979 inception in a pub in Aylesbury, UK. When enigmatic frontman Fish left the group in 1988 it looked like the writing was on the wall. Hooking up with new vocalist Steve Hogarth gave the nu-proggers a new lease of life and resulted in the recording of 1989's ambitious 'Seasons End', which pushed Rothery's guitarwork to the fore, especially on the melodically crafted 'Easter'. www.marillion.com

09 MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP - Doctor Doctor
A blistering new version of the classic UFO track, which originally featured on the group's 1974's album of the same name and made its mark in rock lore on 1979's 'Strangers In The Night' live album. When the essential line-up of the band (Mogg/Way/Schenker/Parker/Raymond) reformed in the mid-1990s to record a brand new composition, they reworked a number of their old songs including this concert favourite. www.ufo-music.info

10 UFO

Lights Out (New Version) Vocalist Phil Mogg, bassist Pete Way and drummer Andy Parker formed veteran Brit rockers UFO in 1969. Originally known as Hocus Pocus, the group which took its name in honour of a London club, went through a myriad line-up changes following the departure of Michael Schenker in the late 1970s. Guitarmen Paul Chapman, Atomic Tommy and Lawrence Archer followed suit, filling the legendary axeman's shoes. www.ufo-music.info

11 URIAH HEEP - Gypsy Guitar wizard Mick Box, the 'Cheshire Cat' of rock, has stayed true to his rock 'n' roll roots for over 30 years. Uriah Heep's brand of traditional Heavy Metal made the British band one of the most popular hard rock groups of the early 1970s. Formed by Box and vocalist David Byron in the late 1960s, the group went through an astonishing number of members over the next two decades (nearly 30 different musicians have passed through the band's ranks over the years).
www.uriah-heep.com

12 DEEP PURPLE - Take It Off The Top (Live) Until he replaced 'moody' guitar hero Ritchie Blackmore as Deep Purple's lead guitarist in 1996, Steve Morse was very much an underground attraction with a healthy following among other guitar players. However, when the remaining original DP Mk 2 members (Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice) recruited the ex Dixie Dregger to the fold, he immediately gave the veteran hard rockers a much needed new spark, which has since resulted in a host of hard-hitting studio and live albums. www.deep-purple.com

13 STEVE HOWE - To Be Over What more can be said about Yesman Steve Howe? With numerous solo releases under his belt he has also worked with artists as diverse as Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Lou Reed and Fish, among others. A pioneering, pivotal figure in the history of classic rock, Howe literally wrote the rulebook for progressive rock guitar, as exemplified by this reverential re-working of a classic Yes track (which originally appeared on 1974's 'Relayer' album). www.stevehowe.com
Mark Crampton A big fan of Classic Rock, Mark Crampton served his stint with a variety of music titles before founding his own Heavy Metal magazine Riff Raff in 1989. Besides his work in publishing he also acts as a rock compilation consultant for a variety of top music labels. For more info contact: markcrampton@mac.com
