Product Description

Special Deluxe Collectors Edition/ 7 Bonus tracks / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 bit digital technology / Contains Keep Your Hands To Yourself, Battleship Chains and Every Picture Tells A Story ; 16 page full colour booklet 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and new band interview. When they first arrived on the scene in 1986, The Georgia Satellites couldn't have been more incongruous with their musical contemporaries. On the one hand they were flanked by clean cut electro pop acts and on the other they were surrounded by legions of hair-metal reprobates. The Satellites, however, were digging deep into not only their regional southern routes but also into the pre rock and roll era as a whole. Based in Atlanta, Georgia the band worked up a sound that was part British blues boom and part southern rock evoking comparisons to influences as diverse as Status Quo, The Rolling Stones, the Faces and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was a raw, take no prisoners style with an eye on the prize yet with a nod to the bands musical heritage setting them apart as a fresh breath of air in a scene short of genuine originality. Issued in 1986 on the Elektra label and produced by Jeff Glixman (Kansas, Gary Moore, Black Sabbath), the album is an explosive statement of intent with guitars cranked to the max and songs that sounds so familiar they could've written themselves. Comprised of front man Dan Baird, guitarist Rick Richards, bassist Rick Price and drummer Mauro Magellan they smashed their way to #2 in the Billboard singles chart with Keep Your Hands To Yourself and Battleship Chains . Look out too for a killer version of Rod Stewart's classic Every Picture Tells A Story .

For me the nineteen eighties was a musical desert with the odd oasis to be found here and there if you looked hard enough. It was a decade where the soul was so often sucked out of music, but every now and then a band would come along to restore your faith, amongst those were bands such as REM, The Long Ryders, Jason and the Scorchers and, of course, this lot, Georgia Satellites, Atlanta's answer to Status Quo.

It was 1985 and I was making my monthly pilgrimage to Penny Lane Records in Chester, a wonderful place, dark, small and dingy, just as a good record shop should be, and unfortunately mainly a thing of the past. As I searched through the vinyl trying to find something to spend my money on a wonderful sound came blasting through the speakers. Rocking guitars, no synthesizers, sounding straight out of 1973 this was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. I asked the assistant what was playing and he handed me a copy of Keep The Faith an EP (Mini album?) by Georgia Satellites. Two tracks were enough for me to make the decision to buy. Only six tracks long but this said so much more than most of the music that was being produced at that time, it was raw, it was honest and it was totally unfashionable. It hardly got off my turntable for the next few months and then got a 5K review from Mick Wall in Kerrang and even Melody Maker gave it a good review (They must have had an off day).

After that I heard nothing of the band for twelve months, despite the best efforts of Kerrang and Melody Maker it seemed that they were going to be another band just too darned good to make it. But then out of nowhere this album arrived. Electra Records in the USA had discovered them and gave them a well deserved major label boost.

A number of years ago, I moved from vinyl to Cd selling my old collection on, or giving it away to my younger brothers. I have recently been re building my collection and remembered how good this album really was. Battleship chains being a big hit with my then girlfriend now wife.

Update July 2014, Please note that my review referes to the original Electra release Georgia Satellites and not the new Rock Candy reissue, Rock Candy are known for there quality reissues and sourcing original master tapes in the process, please buy the Rock Candy version which has bonus tracks I'm sure this cd will sound excelent, here is my original review of the Electra release that I suffered for 23 years untill I got a second hand vinyl copy from ebay, - Fantastic album every track a winner, 37 mins long the perfect length for a rock cd, but please track down a vinyl copy, the sound on this cd is muddy and lacks the definition that the vinyl had quite considerably, it needs a re-master badly, also with the b-side "Hard Luck Boy" added.

Lock the doors, take the phone off the hook, grab a six pack outta the fridge and settle back for some of the best country rock going. All of the songs on this 10 track album make the purchase price of under a tenner worth it on their own!! The best track however will go to Battleship Chains - Lyrics are the best I've heard in a song for a long while - Treat yourself or someone you love - Buy this today.
