TWISTED SISTER - Stay Hungry (25th Anniversary Edition Remastered + bonus disc) *HQ* - full

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of TWISTED SISTER hit album ”Stay Hungry” Rhino Records and the band prepared this special reissue: “Stay Hungry (25th Anniversary Edition Remastered + bonus disc)“.
Guitarist Jay Jay French said: I started to think of a way to recognize and celebrate the music and the times which had become so important to the lives of not only our millions of fans around the world, but also to acknowledge the importance and relevance of all of the music created by the hard rock bands of that period. What became obvious to me was that just re-mastering the original record was not a reason to re-release it. The only way this could be ‘special’ was to locate any material that was recorded by us at the time and never released so as to make a truly great 2 disc package.”

Disc 1 contains a remastered version of original release including rebellious fist-pumpers “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, “I Wanna Rock” and “S.M.F.,” the dark and beckoning “Burn In Hell” and “Stay Hungry” and of course, an 80s metal prerequisite with the power ballad “The Price.”
Disc 2 features “30”, at the time the band’s new song in 11 years. Originally penned for the reality series Gone Wild, Dee Snider decided to record it with the band. Other highlights include a selection of rare takes, non-album recordings, previously unissued songs like an early unpolished demo of “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” and hidden track “Lollipop Guild.”

Veterans of the 80s hair metal machine, the band exploded into the mainstream with catchy anthems and outrageous videos for hit singles like “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock.”

There was acuriosity with this 2-CD set: on many initial copies disc 1 was transferred at very low volume. Rhino and band worked hard contacting customers via email to offer a replacement.
This is the proper release, a ’90s-type of remaster not too loud, and respecting the original sound, especially the drums (the remaster of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” in later compilations is just horrible).

The extra tracks on disc 2 are fun to listen to, song ideas with very good sound quality, and early demos of “The Price”, title track “Stay Hungry”, “We’re Not Gonna Take It” in a rawer style like the good ole Twisted Sister.
Highly Recommended
