RICK SPRINGFIELD – TAO [Rock Candy Remastered] HQ full

Previously known for his immediate, radio-ready melodic rock tunes, RICK SPRINGFIELD changed the general approach of his music delivery with the mid-Eighties record “TAO“. With a production design, arrangements and studio tricks technically far beyond its year, the album was unleashed to the world at the end of 1985.
It was a stellar departure from anything Rick had ever tried before: elaborated Hi-tech AOR melodies with a complex musical background, a heavy mix of processed guitars, synthesizers, vocal effects, sampling and drum machines.
This Rock Candy Records remastered reissue takes advantage of that huge multi-track glossy original production and gave the album a pristine remastering treatment. As result we hear new layers of sound.
“There is a lot going on, you can really hear it. We covered it with a lot of guitar and bass. TAO is still my favorite album” said Springfield. And although we at 0dayrox love his previous records, “TAO” is our favorite too.
This one has all we love from the ’80s; soaring vocals, multi-tracked guitar parts, big compressed drums, ‘that’ reverb and keyboards galore…

RICK SPRINGFIELD – The Red Locusts (2021)

For the band ‘The Red Locusts‘ all started few months ago with their self-titled debut album promotional campaign endorsed by RICK SPRINGFIELD. The band’s members are listed as singer-guitarist Paul Ramone, bassist Scotty Skuffleton, drummer Skippy Skuffleton, keyboardist Duncan Sweets and guitarist Beau Weevil.
Well, in fact, this is a RICK SPRINGFIELD new album / project, a vehicle to do some of the other type of music he loves without his name behind. However it’s pure Springfield, as the songs are being written by him and Matt Bissonette – the former guitarist in his band who he also co-wrote songs with on “Rocket Science,” “Venus in Overdrive” and “Songs for the End of the World.”
The rest of ‘The Red Locusts’ are reputed musicians; i.e. the drummer with the fun fictitious name ‘Skippy Skuffleton’ is in fact the unique Gregg Bissonette (Steve Lukather Band, Stan Bush, Satriani), etc…

RICK SPRINGFIELD – Orchestrating My Life Live (2021)

2019 Orchestrating My Life was a career-defining re-visitation album of a lifetime of hits from Australian-born rocker RICK SPRINGFIELD. The disc featured all the hits you know re-recorded with a mix of rock and orchestral arrangements.
The album was premiered live to a sold out crowd at LA’s Saban Theatre on March 30th 2019. Rick was accompanied on stage by his own high-energy band and the award-winning 100-piece Santa Monica High School Orchestra. Now that show is being released titled “Orchestrating My Life Live“.
Taking a look at the cover art and knowing there would be an orchestra in the recording, honestly we were expecting a boring album… well, since we press play we heard one of the most electrifying Springfield performances ever.
Really, the orchestra arrangements are almost used as a background thing only, what we have here is Rick and his band rocking like Hell! Seriously, these are the ‘heavier’ versions of ‘Celebrate Youth’, ‘Human Touch’ or ‘Jessie’s Girl’ we ever heard.
Don’t be fooled by “Orchestrating My Life Live” title, artwork of for being a live record, this baby rocks!
Highly Recommended

RICK SPRINGFIELD – Living In Oz [Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded]

Requested by many, here’s RICK SPRINGFIELD‘s “Living In Oz“, one of his best ’80s albums ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records.
“Living In Oz” appeared at a time when Rick had made name for himself as a beloved actor in various TV series and as a rock&pop artist, having released the multi-platinum albums Working Class Dog and Success Hasn’t Spoiled Me Yet.
After that he wanted a lot more Rock credibility and started to write harder-edged material that would take his (already) outstanding career to a new level.
Recorded with such luminaries as incredible guitarist Tim Pierce, drummer Mike Baird (Stan Bush, Journey) keyboardist Alan Pasqua, Richard Page & Tom Kelly doing backing vocals, etc, and produced…
