Vintage vinyl and terrific tapes...

Although Heavy Harmonies is of course a CD data base, there are plenty of great songs and bands that are only on vinyl and cassette. What are some classic bands or songs you would like to see on disc?

 

Speaking for myself, I would love to see a band called 3rd Stage Alert released on CD. Their five song EP was produced by Yngwie "J." Malmsteen. I've only heard one song, "Superstar". It's kind of a cross between 220 Volt and Rainbow, and the guitar solo is very European. I got the tune on a Metal Blade compilation CD that was included in a Heavy Metal record collector's book that has since been out of print, and the liner notes indicated that it was the only song ever released by the band on CD. Too bad if that's true, because it's a killer song.

 

Anyone ever heard this band? And do you have any others to add to the list?

I had the 3rd stage Alert on Tape, and I transfered to CD, it's

not bad, "Superstar" The song on Martin Popoff's Metal Guide ( as you mention)

is the Best song on the release...the rest being rather average.

I'm sorry to hear that. I had been looking for that EP, thinking that if the rest was like "Superstar" it would be worth having...thanks for the info.

I have a couple of cool vinyl Metallica bootlegs that I'd like to transfer to CD one of these fine days.

I'd also love to find American Noise. They had some songs on the radio in the Cleveland market when I was growing up, but I've never seen the LP anywhere, let alone a CD.

Some class items there my friend. Dedringer's 'Maxine' was a great all out guitar boogie along the Molly Hatchet lines. (Check out Taurus 'Paper Chaser' similar style -same era NWOBHM 1980)

 

Ref Robin George - Dnagerous music - this got reissued on sanctuary I think 3-4 yrs ago...with bonus trks.

you're da man, bro! a couple of days ago i was browsing the huge HH database and i found that some cheapo boots were added there. please somebody remove them. i always thought that HH was against these liars, leechers, scumbags, bastards etc etc etc.

 

for example the x-caliber-warriors of the night, was a bloody bootleg. and actually i know for a fact that this has been transfered to cd through some x-generation bloody tape made from the original vinyl( i know who gave it to "panos" in order to "release" it on cd)....

TAURUS-PAPER CHASER is one of my all time faves!!! :tumbsup:

I'd love to see HEARTBREAK's "Heartbreak Motel" released on CD. What a killer release.

    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.  
    • It's coming out in February 2022 so your prediction might be a bit off
    • Well I'm a gamer but if I can't blast someones face off with a shotgun then I'm not interested....
