Product Description

Special Limited Deluxe Collector s Edition / Bonus Track / Remastered - Sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / 16 page full colour booklet 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the artist. 1980 s Romeo s Daughter were, undoubtedly, viewed as the great white hope; they were the saviours of the scene, the band most likely to succeed. And let s face it they had it all; an astonishing lead vocalist, killer musicianship, superbly crafted songs and a dedicated label. What could go wrong? Sadly this story didn t have a fairy tale ending. The band s debut album was produced by Robert Mutt Lange (Def Leppard, Foreigner ect), and received a tidal wave of accolades setting them up for album #2. But in an effort to work with Lange second time around the band put their career on ice, biding time until the great man was once again available. Time, however, waits for no man, and, after enduring a prolonged hiatus, the band ended up label less with little prospect of Lange returning to the fold. Switching to the independent Music For Nations label, they took the bull by the horns and got back to work crafting a stunning follow up to their critically lauded debut. It is a record stuffed to the gills with choice songs and exceptional vocal performances from Leigh Matty, proving that the band s worth was just as valuable if not more so. That Delectable ultimately failed to secure a foot hold to enormo-dome success was not the fault of the band or record, but more a sign of the times. Yet despite everything it remains one of the most revered albums of the period.

Format: Audio CD
A lost commercial rock classic that sadly fell short of huge success but gained a big cult status. The band released this album on a major label to great critical acclaim, followed by a lower key indie release (the rawer, but equally excellent 'Delectable'), then split. But thankfully they have recently reformed and are about to release their long awaited 3rd album (hopefully in 2010).
For now though there is this excellent re-release with new sleeve notes and extra live tracks (pity the single B sides weren't added to make it a perfect package....)
Sounding like Def Leppard and The Cars in a blender with Shania Twain singing - perfect radio rock! Buy it - it's THAT good! Then pick up the 2nd album and check for their next live dates - you won't be disappointed!!

Was a great Cd, still prefer their version of Wild Child to Heart's one. Oh, and they did release a 2nd Album in 1993 Delectable, So not a One Album deal. Leigh Matty had a unique voice
