During the early eighties Los Angeles was a veritable breeding ground for an epidemic of hard rock bands. A scene was rapidly developing but it wasn't until Quiet Riot's debut album 'Metal Health' hit the stores that the city was put on the map as the rock 'n roll capital of the world. The band's enduring #1 single 'Cum On Feel The Noise' sent the album skywards, notching up sales of ten million and opening the way for others, including Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Dokken and others to follow in their slipstream. 'QR III' is, as the name suggests, the band's third album (originally released in 1986) and showcases some major changes, not only musically but also on the personnel front; bassist Rudy Sarzo was replaced by Chuck Wright (from Giuffria). Showcasing a far more mature sound, the band introduced keyboards and featured song writing that suggested that they had finally come of age, relying less on simplistic shout-it-out-loud hooks and more on multiple layers of rich melody with impressive muscle. The arrangements were mature without giving way to syrupy lullabies or saccharin ballads. Sadly, the band's fortunes, through no fault of their own, continued to spiral out of control, resulting in an album that was critically lauded as their best work but one that in purely commercial terms sadly underachieved. In the end, internal unrest resulted in flamboyant front man Kevin Dubrow being asked to leave the band - for many an unthinkable development - signaling the end of a once great institution. This is a Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition which features Kevin DuBrow, Carlos Carvazo & Frankie Banali. It has been remastered with sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology by Jon Astley (the Who, Judas
Priest, Eric Clapton etc). It is packaged with a 16 page full colour booklet, 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the band
