The much delayed DVD of the Tony Ashton show at Abbey Road in 2000 is finally out on DVD. It has twenty two tracks, including all the PAL and Company Of Snakes performance, as well the three track Tony Ashton set, and Pete York / Eddie Hardin's set. A few of the opening acts are missing, but all the important stuff is here. It's been done as a combined DVD / CD package, so you also get the same set on a 2xCD, all in a thick digipak.
For a huge army of fans around the world, the classic line-up of Whitesnake which recorded albums such as 'Ready An' Willing', 'Live In The Heart Of The City' and 'Come An' Get it' was the definitive rock band of the late 70s and early 80s. There is something unique about the combination of musicians who built Whitesnake's success that cannot be replicated, and the songs that they wrote and recorded together are still incredibly popular.
1985's "Scratch And Bite" is Swedish hard rock band Treat's debut album. While the album isn't "Dreamhunter (1987)" or "Pleasure Principle (1986)", it was a perfectly decent way to start Treat's career. "Scratch And Bite" was re-issued in 2008. The deluxe reissue features digitally remastered sound, a pair of bonus tracks (studio songs called "On the Outside" and "Danger Games") and comes housed in a digipak with a bonus DVD of the band's performance at the 2006 Live At Firefest III.
"A Conspiracy Of Stars" breathes that typically British easy-going confidence for which this band has been known for over 45 years. A strong release consisting of eleven songs which combine everything that the group surrounding frontman Phil Mogg stands for: meaty riffs, distinctive hooks, diverse songwriting, intelligent lyrics and that generally laid-back attitude which we have associated with UFO from the start.
