Description

In the ’80s, Kerrang! Magazine was ‘the one’ you needed to check to be updated if Hard Rock / AOR / Heavy Metal was your thing. Their journalists in conjunction with the recently founded (and now legendary) Music For Nations label, compiled songs from American / Canadian bands that were pretty unknown at the moment and released a double-LP album under the title “Striktly For Konnoisseurs”.
The vinyl was intended for the British audience, and only was pressed & published in UK.

You have here great tracks mostly taken from the first albums (late ’70s / early ’80s) of bands that later become pretty successful, like Legs Diamond, Angel (turned Giuffria), Wrabit, etc, besides wonderful cuts from acts that deserved to be huge such as Trillion, 707, Balance, and more.
Many of these albums were already reissued on CD some time ago, but others will remain forever into oblivion as the Reggie Knighton Band, Marcus or the awesome Mayday.
Some tracks seem to be featured with a different mix, or, as happens with Canadian hard rockers Moxys “Another Time Another Place”, its an exclusive version for this compilation.

A true collectors piece.

During the ’80s, Kerrang! magazine was a hard rock and heavy metal bible. The powers at Kerrang! magazine issued Striktly for Konnoisseurs in 1984, which is loaded down with several hot tracks from North American groups that never caught a big break. The collection of cult-following-cuts that fill out the double album set includes the likes of ’70s rockers Legs Diamond (“Its Not the Music”), Angel (“The Tower”), Starz (“Live Wire”), Ram Jam (“Gone Wild”), Moxy (“Another Time Another Place”), Wrabit (“Just Go Away”), 1994 (“Please Stand By”), Max Webster (“Oh War”), Marcus (“Black Magic”), 1994 (“Please Stand By”), and the Joe Perry Project (“Let the Music Do the Talking”).

Missing in action: “Gotta Keep a Runnin'” from the rust-belt rockers known as The Godz

For all those fanciers among us who appreciate an elite of finest songs that our beloved music genre came up with until 1984 when this fantastic 2-LP set was released, the presented here original (which comes with enhanced sound quality) is intended for a very long lasting, delightful listening pleasure, indeed!

Especially for guys and gals who discovered the stunning vibes of AOR for themselves just as of recently, I think Striktly For Konnoisseurs offers a wide spectrum of both – classic and rare – songs which shouldn’t be missed since they take you on a wild ride deeper into the subject and makes you sigh for longing and passion in terms of the provided tracks!

So I’m raising my hat to the persons involved in this impressive job. Another “not want to miss” 2LP!

This was a smashing introduction to the great Pomp/ genre for me back when it was released.
