Nazareth - Loud N Proud

NAZARETH - LOUD N PROUD [MOVLP576]

This landmark Nazareth album shows the tougher side of these Scottish hard rockers. After recording eight songs the band decided to christen the album the way it sounds: this record is loud and the band is friggin' proud of it! Heavy on drums and distorted guitars, the band pushes its way through the 48 minutes like a steam train running wild, with the exception of a breezy excursion like "Child In The Sun" and a doomy but incredibly intense version of Bob Dylan's "The Ballad Of Hollis Brown".

Toto - IV

TOTO – IV [MOVLP554]

Toto are responsible for the best sounding albums in 80s rock. With top of the range studio facilities and musicians at hand, founders David Paich, Bobby Kimball, Steve Lukather and the Porcaro brothers know how to craft a hit song or two. Their fourth album was aptly titled IV and contains world hits "Rosanna" and "Africa". After recording IV, Toto's members returned to the studio in order to help write and record another classic: Michael Jackson's Thriller (MOVLP014).
