Don Barnes – Ride the storm Release: 30-06-2017
Label: Melodic rock records
MelodicRock Records is thrilled to announce one of the biggest releases for the label thus far ! How else could you describe an album featuring Dann Huff, Alan Pasqua,
Jeff & Mike Porcaro, Jesse Harms and Denny Carmassi ? MRR will be the label finally able to extract one of the best “lost” albums of all time for an official release. Plenty have tried over the years, but timing is everything !
Nearly 30 years ago, what would have been an instant classic was relegated to storage thanks to the old story of record label machinations.
Of course, we are talking about the classic AOR masterpiece “Ride The Storm“
And even better news for fans and collectors that have had this record in its various mp3 forms over the years, what you have isn’t the main record you’re about to hear.
In searching for the original masters for “Ride The Storm”, after being lost for two decades, Don found the only existing copy of a ‘rock mix’ that was commissioned back in 1989 to take a look at how the songs would sound, remixed for a bigger ‘rock’ impact.
Ever the completist, Andrew McNeice insisted that both mixes of the classic album were included in the release – as well as the three individual, heavily traded, solo demo tracks that were recorded but not included on the original album.
The complete “Ride The Storm” release will therefore be a 2cd set, featuring the album in its intended form, plus the second ‘alternate mix’ disc,
on which the three additional bonus tracks are added at the end.
My name is Gino (I'm from Belgium) and I 'm the founder of Rock-files-promo.be , a new website to promote new bands , unsigned bands , non-euro distributed and lots more !
I've always been very passionate for rock music in general so I desided to start my personal website but different from what you see all over the web !
This site is non profit (donations are accepted) and all about my favorite music. Almost all cd's here are in my private collection (or will be asap) !
When I started this website in september 2016 I wasn't planning on doing reviews because I believe that's someone's personal opinion...but as you'll see I already changed my mind about this because the requests keep coming from bands & labels. Interviews are also possible !
Most of the promotion here are bands that I know personaly in one way or another...and from the labels that I have partnership with.
I choose to specialize in small independant releases or releases that are hardly distributed over here ! Countrys like Brazil,Mexico,Russia,.....
I work very hard to bring to you the best music news and more. I'm not just another site posting standard releases in a row, I take the time to select the best and newest bands. All this is big time-consuming, alongside to write a proper review and prepare all the material. So if you like what I'm doing here maybe you can help me with a donation through paypal.
