Ratt’s Invasion Of Your Privacy:

Rock Candy Records states (with slight edits): “There’s no doubt that the mid eighties were pretty much ruled by an exciting clique of Los Angeles based hard rock bands. Everyone from Mötley Crüe, Great White, Dokken and Quiet Riot were breaking records in one way or another, but it was five piece Ratt who really condensed all that was truly exciting about the scene when their debut album Out Of The Cellar exploded at MTV, radio and retail, giving them a double platinum album and a reputation second to none.  The impressive Invasion Of Your Privacy, produced by Beau Hill, who masterminded their previous record, found the band further exploiting their penchant for snappy melodies and super catchy hooks. Tracks such as “You’re In Love”, “Lay It Down” and “What You Give Is What You Get” became instant Ratt classics bouncing out of the grooves and right into the public’s heart. It was this album that truly elevated Ratt to arena headline status in the US, whilst helping to spread the message further afield in Europe and Japan. A solid gold classic.”

The Rock Candy Records release of Ratt‘s Invasion Of Your Privacy includes a 16 page full colour booklet, a 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new interviews. In addition, the audio has been fully remastered.

Ratt’s Reach For The Sky:

Rock Candy records have announced (with slights edits): “Ratt‘s rise to fame and fortune was meteoric. Kicking around Southern California in various forms since the mid 70s, the band fully gelled in 1981, with the independent release of a well received debut mini album, which quickly led to a coveted recording contract with label giant Atlantic Records. Their debut album Out Of The Cellar exploded out of the box ultimately reaching sales in excess of double platinum. Reach For The Sky, originally released in late 1988 and produced in the main by Mike Stone (Journey, Queen and Whitesnake), found Ratt in familiar musical territory, a style based on big hooks, shout-it-out-loud vocals and razor sharp riffs. It was the sound of the times alright, and although performing well (attaining platinum status) the band were feeling the strain of their work load. In fact it was the final album to feature guitarist Robbin Crosby who would leave due to much publicised personal problems.”

Just like for Invasion Of Your Privacy, Rock Candy Records release of Reach For The Sky includes a 16 page full colour booklet, a 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new interviews, and the audio has been fully remastered.

Coney Hatch’s Friction:

Rock Candy Records has indicated (with slight edits): “Toronto based Coney Hatch were one of Canada’s brightest hopes during the mid eighties. They impressed fans and critics alike with their rambunctious brand of melodic hard rock, a sound imbued with a certain, some might say typically Canadian, quirkiness. Friction was the band’s third and, as it turned out, their final album. It was a record designed to infiltrate the mass market, with catchy hooks and a selection of punishing riffs. Issued in 1985 and crafted by renowned British producer Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Y&T, Lynch Mob) the record was received with great critical enthusiasm, but hit a brick wall at their record company. With Def Leppard and Bon Jovi receiving major promotional pushes, Coney Hatch were sidelined and left, without the financial budget, to fight their own corner. It was a crushing disappointment, leaving the band in a state of confusion and, ultimately, unable to carry on. Their legacy, however, continues to grow, with many citing Friction as their finest and, possibly, one of the best albums released that year. Revisit the likes of “This Ain’t Love”, “Fantasy” and “Burning Love” for proof positive that this record delivered on all fronts.”

In addition to including a 16 page full colour booklet, a 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new interviews, and having the audio fully remastered, Rock Candy Records’ release of Friction contains one bonus track.
