MAGNUM - Goodnight L.A. [Music On CD reissue] (2023) HQ *Exclusive* - full

Now we have here in exclusive the fresh CD reissue of MAGNUM awesome 1990 album “Goodnight L.A.” made by really good Dutch label Music On CD. This company has been doing a great work lately making available again on disc hard to find melodic hard rock albums / bands. As usual, Music On CD reissues are not freshly remastered, they just use the best masters available.
However, the sound quality of this modern digital transfer results into a much better, ‘fat’ sounding CD, far superior than the original CD pressings. And considering “Goodnight L.A.” never has been remastered, this Music On CD release is the best sounding you can get.
For this new album Polydor Records wanted a late ’80s bright sound to Magnum finally broje into the North American charts. With genius Keith Olsen producing, co-write contribution from the likes Russ Ballard, Jim Vallance, plus harmony vocals / backings from talented Tommy Funderburk and Saga’s Michael Sadler, Magnum created a wonderful piece of AOR here.

While not reaching the masterpiece status of ‘On A Storytellers Night’ or ‘Vigilante’, “Goodnight L.A.” is a fantastic album not only for Magnum standards, but also one of the finest Melodic hard rock / AOR albums from the 1989 / 1990 period, with that polished production and impeccable arrangements.
All songs are good, and if you like the band and this golden period from the genre, Magnum’s “Goodnight L.A.” is mandatory in your collection.
