In some respects, Riot’s story is one of what might have been, and to some degree, a band not quite at the right place at the right time. What this 6 CD collection of live recordings and demos does offer is a unique and raw insight into this influential and cult hard rock and heavy metal band, as they cemented their reputation as a live draw across America in the 1980s.
The highly influential Poco are, along with the likes of the Flying Burrito Brothers, best known for being early proponents of what would soon become recognised as country rock. This 5CD set kicks off with their fourth album, “A Good Feelin’ to Know” and runs through to 1974's Cantamos with the final disc (five) featuring Poco Live in 1976.
Expanded reissue of 'Stranger In Us All' by Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. The extensive liner notes also feature a personal account from singer Doogie White, plus plenty of artwork and memorabilia from Doogie's own Rainbow collection.

In 1968 - when the band that had previously been known as The Scorpions, The Spectres and Traffic Jam, became The Status Quo - Bob Young joined as their roadie, tour manager and harmonica player, until he stepped down from this role in 1981. On this album, Bob is joined by some impressive guests, including long-time “Young & Moody” collaborator, Micky Moody on guitar, Albert Lee, Billy Bremner, B J Cole, Pete Wiltshire, and Quo’s Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt. As an extra treat for Quo fans, the album finishes on a writing session for the band’s first number one single, ‘Down Down’, recorded at the Travelodge Motel in Hollywood, on the band’s first American tour in 1973.
