Camarillo, CA (PressExposure) September 27, 2012 -- Culver City, CA, September 27, 2012 -- Marshall Blonstein and Audio Fidelity decided to do a deep dive into rock history and they have released two classic albums in their popular 24 karat gold format. The legendary bands Ten Years After with Rock and Roll Music to the World (1972) and The Scorpions with their definitive heavy metal classic Love At First Sting (1984) are now ready for music lovers everywhere to enjoy.
Although the two bands are worlds apart each album provides a standout collection of tracks celebrating each genre. Alvin Lee and Ten Years After proved that they could take the blues to new levels by injecting it with flurries of rock and stinging guitar lines from their leader while adding layers of keyboards, bass and drums to flesh out a true jam session and a progressive approach to blues rock. The opening track "You Give Me Loving" sets the table for what is to come and it's a full course meal of superbly executed music with all the trimmings.
The Scorpions were equally influential in the hard rock/metal arena by providing in your face rhythmic metal that anyone could bob their heads to or sing along with. Love At First Sting proved to be a pivotal year for the German band and they became worldwide superstars with one of their most successful releases. With anthem like tracks such as "Rock You Like A Hurricane," the rockin' ballad "Still Loving You" and "Big City Nights" the band was branded for success for years to come.
For Audio Fidelity, a specialty label with its sights set on only the best rock music, the choices were easy to make. With the label's own special remastering process in place they took these two rock classics and brought out the best of each release. Bringing out all the highs and lows and balancing that for an end product that is crisp and sharp is the hallmark of their 24 karat gold releases.
Each disc is numbered and included with a window slip case with original artwork. The first run of the Scorpions disc sold out quickly and the same kind of response is expected of the second run. This is par for the course for the label. Previous Ten Years After releases have sold well and the same result is anticipated of the new release.
The popularity of these classic releases never diminished and to this day their appeal is still magnetic for collectors and lovers of rock music. Interested buyers can get their copies directly from the label's website or at Amazon.com.
