AUTOGRAPH – The Anthology [rarities 2CD]

AUTOGRAPH - The Anthology [rarities 2CD] full

AUTOGRAPH, one of the most notable acts from the ’80s hair metal golden years, brings us from their vaults “The Anthology“. This double CD release includes all the band’s hits on their prime versions plus a bunch of rarities.

“The Anthology” features the original studio demo version of the band’s monster hit single ‘Turn Up The Radio’ plus more pre-Sign In Please recordings which landed the group a major label deal with RCA in 1984.

Disc 1 “Studio Demos 1983-1988” consists of almost 2 / 3 of the material appeared into Autograph’s first three records: ‘Sign In Please’, ‘That’s The Stuff’ and ‘Loud And Clear’.
All these tracks are pre-production demos / earlier versions (with very good sound quality), including their biggest hit ‘Turn Up The Radio’. It’s funny to hear this song with a twist in the lyrics.

The second CD “Buzz & Beyond” offers rare songs from the 2nd incarnation of the band when leader Steve Plunkett added to the line-up drummer Matt Laug (Slash), excellent virtuoso guitarist T. J. Helmerich (Dwezil Zappa, Planet X), and Alice Cooper / John Waite bass player Lance Morrison.
