MICHAEL WHITE – Michael White [Rock Candy remastered]

As requested, here’s the Rock Candy Records has ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ reissue of MICHAEL WHITE self-titled effort from 1987, for years impossible to find on any format and now available on CD for the first time.
American born MICHAEL WHITE started his career at the end of the Seventies as member of underground L.A. bands such as ‘The Boys’ (alongside pre-DOKKEN George Lynch and Mick Brown), ‘L.A. Rocks’ with W.A.S.P.’s Randy Piper, and in Nikki Sixx’s pre-Motley ‘London’.
Looking for a more classic sound Michael formed ‘The White’, his own band. Mixing originals with LED ZEPPELIN covers, the group toured extensively throughout North America.
Interestingly, Michael’s stab at solo success included an unexpectedly successful entrée into the business. Encouraged by Robert Plant himself, White submitted demos to Atlantic Records that were eventually sanctioned by the most important executive at the label, namely founder, and the man who originally signed Zeppelin, Ahmet Ertegun.
“Michael White” is a very good album mixing classic bluesy hard rock from the British school and ’80s American radio-ready Melodic Rock. It’s some kind of a mix between KINGDOM COME, STONE FURY, GREAT WHITE, WHITESNAKE, etc. including finely crafted songs…
