It seems as though what I class as the best NWOBHM album ever, Dark Star - S/T {1981 release} is being re-issued and now available for pre-order on November the 10th through the Krescendo Label for a normal price.

I paid big big $'s for the Jap release of this a few years ago when it was extremely rare and hard to find.

The track :bowdown: "Backstreet Killer" is one of my favourite all time songs and it also contains the brilliant 'Lady Of Mars", "Kaptain America" and "The Musician".

Anyone who likes the old style NWOBHM.....This is a must.....It's worth the price alone just for "Backstreet Killer" and "Lady Of Mars" :tumbsup:

Great news Dave, Thanx. I do really hope that Krescendo do a better job with this than some of their recent 'Remasters', which were decidedly 'Not great' shall we say. :tumbsup:

Dave....thanks for the "heads Up' on this one.......I am a big fan of NWOBHM.....something about that 80's sound. Listening to those MP3 samples just doesn't do the album justice though......can't wait to hear the "full impact" on my big speakers ......all uncompressed and magnificent!!!.......

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
