Music On Vinyl's trip to the Danger Zone

John Lee Hooker was an influential blues singer who gained recognition by developing his own rhythm boogie style. Don't Turn Me From Your Door is one of the many compilations that appeared and it's a release tinted by his raw blues guitar play and recognizable voice. Shortly after Billy Cobham left the band Mahavishnu Orchestra he released his debut solo album Spectrum. Influenced by the music of Miles Davis he combined jazz elements with rock and psychedelia. He can be seen as one of the greatest jazz-fusion drummers from the last decades. The Dutch hard rock band Golden Earring released their 30th studio album Millbrook U.S.A in 2003. With vocalist Barry Hay they're showing the rawness and the pureness of their sound. Millbrook U.S.A. is available as a limited first pressing of 1.500 individually numbered copies on blue coloured vinyl.

The award winning Merengue singer Elvis Crespo is known for his gigantic hit single "Suavemente". He released his debut album by the same name in 1998. Besides this hit the album is a collection of romantic ballads and uptempo tracks. Suavemente is available on vinyl for the first time and available as a 20th anniversary edition of 1.000 individually numbered copies on coloured (blue & white mixed) vinyl. In 1984 the German heavy metal band Sinner released their third album Danger Zone. The heavy metal formula works wonder well together with the fun they put in recording their songs. The album is available as a limited numbered edition of 666 numbered copies on white & blue mixed coloured vinyl. Adorable released their debut album Against Perfection in 1993, and it remains as fresh today as it did 25 years ago. The album very much bridges Shoegaze and Britpop with the atmospheric guitar work acting as a counter-point to the strong sense of song writing. The 25th anniversary edition of Against Perfection is available as a first pressing of 1.500 individually numbered copies on flaming vinyl.

Rock of Ages is a 2012 musical comedy-drama film directed by Adam Shankman. The rock 'n' roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Journey, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Whitesnake and more. The soundtrack of Rock of Ages is now available on vinyl for the first time. The limited edition of 750 copies is individually numbered and pressed on crystal clear, solid red and solid blue mixed coloured vinyl.
