DANGER DANGER – Danger Danger +5 [Rock Candy remastered] HQ

Many of you asked for the Rock Candy Records remastering of DANGER DANGER first album “Danger Danger” in maximum quality. In terms of sound this “Danger Danger [Rock Candy remastered +5]” reissue is bright and punchy with great dynamics for modern CD players, but apart from that includes as bonus the complete ‘Down and Dirty Live‘ EP remastered for the first time.
New York, New York, says the famous song. So good they named it twice. Well, if that sort of shtick was good enough for ol’ Blue eyes then it was certainly good enough for late ’80s New York area melodic hard rockers Danger Danger whose songs ‘Naughty, Naughty’ and ‘Bang Bang’ helped to emphasize the point perfectly.
Fashioning memorable songs with firebrand riffs, Danger Danger were signed by the Imagine label (a division of Epic Records, headed by Industry legend Lennie Petze) and put into the studio with Lance Quin (Bon Jovi, Lita Ford). The band’s self titled debut album “Danger Danger” instantly produced a hit single with the MTV friendly ‘Naughty Naughty’, a song that defined the band’s appeal as one of the best high-energy melodic rock bands of the era…

POLEY / RIVERA – Only Human [Melodic Rock Records Reissue +1]

As requested here’s more Ted Poley, the reissue of the out of print record he did with guitarist Vic Rivera (Adriangale / Crunch) while Danger Danger were inactive. POLEY / RIVERA‘s “Only Human” is a set of classic melodic rock / AOR tunes that will hit the bullseye for long time fans of both Ted and Vic.
“Only Human” is everything one expects from a Ted Poley release, with the added “crunch” of Vic Rivera, showcasing an extra special set of songs. While plenty of catchiness, the songs prioritizes riffs over melody.

JACK FROST (feat Ted Poley, Terry Ilous, Paul Shortino) – Out In The Cold [2020 reissue]

While you may remember the character ‘Jack Frost’ from a number of fairytales, this JACK FROST is a respected axeman of bands such as Savatage, Metalium, and Seven Witches.
For this solo, just reissued album “Out In The Cold”, Frost recruited a wide ranging guest list including star vocalists like Ted Poley, Terry Ilous, Paul Shortino, Jeff Martin (Michael Schenker Group, Racer X) and more.
It’s a mix of original material and covers (songs by Foreigner, April Wine, .38 Special and The Babys) with the contributing vocalists adding their own lyrics to Frost’s music, which makes for a varied and interesting approach.
There’s also more known players here; on bass Mike Duda (W.A.S.P.), Mike LePond, Rev Jones (Steelheart), Joey Vera (Lizzy Borden), drummer Patrick Johansson (Takara, Malmasteen), Chuck White (Dee Snider), Eric Ragno (Khymera, Tony Mills, KISS) and many more…

For their second album...

DANGER DANGER – Screw It! [Bad Reputation 2-CD remaster +6 Bonus Tracks] OOP

French reissue label Bad Reputation / Axe Killer has been doing a great job releasing ‘Collector Series / Remastered with Bonus‘, with the main attraction being the addition of a bonus tracks or bonus disc, making these reissues the ‘definitive expanded versions’. In a Rock Candy Records fashion, these are official remasters in arrangement with the original recording companies.
DANGER DANGER‘s second album Screw It!” comes with a bonus track (B-side of the single ‘I Still Think About You’) and a bonus disc, the complete “Down And Dirty Live!” EP, originally released as promo.
For their second album “Screw It!”, Danger Danger basically took every element from the debut and turned it up a notch. The melodies are catchier, the production is shinier, and Ted Poley’s vocals are cleaner. The AOR melodies from the debut are mostly replaced with another instantly lovable factor: HOOKS.
With a definite ‘what the Heck’ attitude, “Screw It!” rocks from start to finish, there’s not a single weak song on this album.

But while this is...
