Head On - Samson

Head On
Although best known today as the band where lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson served his Metal apprenticeship prior to joining those eater of worlds, Iron Maiden, Samson are still rightly regarded as one of the pivotal bands from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement of the 80s.
Taking their name from guitarist and leader, Paul Samson, the band first emerged in 1977 from the ashes of another eponymously named band, McCoy whose leader bassist John McCoy was headhunted for Ian Gillans’s eponymously named band, Gillan, following the vocalist’s departure from Deep Purple.
‘Head On’ was Samson’s second album released in June 1980 and along with Paul Samson and Bruce Dickinson (although then going by his stage name Bruce Bruce), bassist Chris Aylmer and drummer Thunderstick (noted for disguising his identity by wearing S&M masks and playing live in a steel cage), completed the line-up.
In deference to the crass cover artwork, the album boasts a breadth of writing and playing ability above much that the NOWBHM movement had to offer. Tracks such as ‘Vice Versa’, ‘Hunted’ and ‘Walking Out On You’ helped the album achieve the band’s highest ever chart placing of number 34. ‘Head On’ also displays perfectly the power and range of singer Dickinson whose vocal agility earned him the title, the Air Raid Siren, as well as showcasing Paul Samson’s considerable talent as a guitarist and writer and reinforces the loss to the metal community due to his death from cancer in 2002, aged just 49.
· Fully Re-mastered Collector’s Edition of Samson’s second album, one of the NWOBHMs premier outfits.
· Expanded to include 2 bonus tracks.
· 16 page booklet with story of the album sleeve-note and rare photos and images from the period.

Originally released in July 1989, "Trash” is Alice Cooper’s 18th studio album. This worldwide hit represents a return to form as much as a career high for the rock legend, featuring no less than 4 hit singles; ‘Poison’, ‘Bed of Nails’, ‘House of Fire’, and ‘Only My Heart Talkin’’.

Produced by Desmond Child, it features  many guest appearances, including Bon Jovi’s Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, Aerosmith’s Stephen Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton & Joey Kramer, Toto’s Steve Lukather, as well as song writing contributions from Joan Jett, Diane Warren, Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora.

This remastered edition features two bonus tracks; a rare radio edit of ‘Only My Heart Talkin’’, plus the non-album song ‘I Got A Line On You’, a cover of the Randy California song originally recorded by Spirit.

With plenty of rare photos and memorabilia, this set also features new and insightful liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome, based on recent interviews with Alice Cooper himself.

The Last Temptation: 20th Anniversary Edition
•    The main character in this "concept" album is a boy called Steven. Steven is afraid. Afraid of ghost stories, afraid of growing up... just afraid. That is, until he meets the mysterious Showman and his Theatre of the Real. Steven takes a ticket and watches the show on a dare, but getting out of the performance will be harder than he ever imagined. And then Steven learns what it is to be truly afraid...

•    After the more poppy, mainstream "Hey Stoopid" in 1991, which followed the worldwide smash "Trash" in 1989, the conceptual nature of "The Last Temptation" was a major departure from the two more commercially orientated predecessors, whilst resurrecting some of the darker, macabre themes from ealier in Alice's career. 

•    Alice Cooper's 20th studio album, "The Last Temptation" was originally
issued on the Epic label in July 1994.

•    Alice is joined on this record by Stef Burns on guitar, Greg Smith on bass, Derek Sherinian on keyboards and David Uosikkinen on drums, whilst Soundgarden's Chris Cornell guests on the songs 'Stolen Prayer' and 'Unholy War'.

•    The album's concept was also issued as a series of comics by famed
graphic novelist Neil Gaiman, and features cover artwork by Dave McKean, illustrated by Michael Zulli, which is also getting a 20th 
anniversary make-over.

•    For the fans that want more of the commercially orientated rock and metal that had given Alice huge hits, the album features the singles 'Lost In America' and 'It's Me'. The package will be issued in a  deluxe digipak, with 16 page booklet featuring an extensive essay and rare
memorabilia.
