Special Deluxe Collector's Edition - fully restored and remastered audio with five bonus tracks. Produced by Mike Chapman (The Sweet, Blondie, Lita Ford). Features Patty Smyth. 16 page full colour booklet - 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and band involvement. This is the story of a very successful chart storming band, but it's also the tale of a band in disarray. Scandal's debut album won massive acceptance from the American mainstream quickly elevating them to pop star status, a position enhanced by the allure of vocalist Patty Smyth and her smokey voice. Behind the scenes however the pressure was enormous, with record company interference; inter-band discourse and creative tensions aplenty. Based in New York, the band was a well honed combo of respected players all with a story to tell and a point to make. Guitarist Zack Smith was the perfect foil for Patty, lending a winning call and response buff to the tracks and helping to drive the album to platinum sales and beyond. Lead off track and first single, 'The Warrior' (written by Nick Gilder and Holy Knight) was a top ten hit, helping to define the band's style and potential reach. Despite the behind the scenes difficulties 'Warrior' triumphed as a resolutely consummate work, neatly honing in on the radio-friendly melodic hard rock style that was gaining traction at radio and MTV. Brilliantly produced by Mike Chapman, a man famed for working with such talent as the Sweet, Blondie and Lita Ford, the record bristles with energy and excitement. Oh, listen out to 'Only The Young' a rare track written and recorded, but unreleased at the time, by Journey for their 'Frontiers' album."
