Rock Candy Records - New Label With Classic Rockalbums

INTRODUCING ROCK CANDY RECORDS, a new label focussing on the detailed re-issue (on Compact Disc) of vintage hard rock
& AOR releases from the ?70s, ?80s & ?90s.

Set-up by former Kerrang! Journalists Dante Bonutto & Derek Oliver, the label will leave no stone unturned and no avenue unexplored in its quest to reactivate some of the world?s greatest rock albums ? albums that STILL sound like winners this side of a new millennium. Wherever possible, all releases will be undertaken in close consultation with the artists & their representatives; they will be remastered from original sources by Jon Astley (the Who, Eric Clapton, Judas Priest, etc.) and contain 16-page full colour booklets with original & enhanced artwork, additional photography, clippings, memorabilia etc.

Attention to detail will be second to none, especially when it comes to the accompanying sleevenotes, which will be approx. 4,000 words in length and written by a selection of influential rock journos with a history in this area.

Rock Candy?s first three releases ? due out June 20th, 2005 ? are as follows, with two albums per month expected thereafter:

RIOT - NARITA
HELIX - NO REST FOR THE WICKED
ICON - NIGHT OF THE CRIME

Very interesting for all us guys who?re born and raised at the 70?s and 80?s for sure!
