Loudness Release 30th Anniversary Expanded Edition Of "Soldier Of Fortune" Album
LOUDNESS, “SOLDIER OF FORTUNE” 30th Anniversary Edition, In addition to the remastered sound source, features demo tracks, live video, etc. and has been recorded and released on 3CD + 1DVD on 9/23/2020!
The 30th-anniversary edition series released of the album “SOLDIER OF FORTUNE”, which is the first set of the second term of LOUDNESS, is now available as a special edition of the 30th-anniversary edition! !!
The DISC 1 of this set has been remastered by the same engineer Chris Bellman as the original.
DISC2 is recordings of the final rough mix that, and it is irresistible for enthusiasts to find differences such as the balance of the mix slightly different from the product version. In addition, a newly found karaoke sound source is also recorded.
And DISC3 has carefully selected demos from the sound source from the Masayoshi Yamashita collection, which made me say “Bill Wyman for Stones, Lars for Metallica, and Yamashita for loudness”, and the rhythm for the 30th anniversary of “HURRICANE EYES”. It is also interesting that “LOVE TOYS”, which was recorded as a track REC, is included in this demo (finally, this song will see the light of day for the first time in the next album “ON THE PROWL”). The “UN-RELEASE D3” and “UN-RELEASE D4” found this time will be included in the new album scheduled to be released in the 40th anniversary year, respectively, by the play of current member Suzuki “Anpan” Masayuki and support drummer Nishida “Dragon” Ryuichi.

The latest pre-pro sound source that is currently being worked on will also be recorded, and it is also interesting how the original drum play of Munetaka Higuchi will be finished by the current members.In addition to “YOU SHOOK ME” (MV), DISC4 archived two precious images of “YOU SHOOK ME” and “FACES IN THE FIRE” when they appeared on NHK “JUST POP UP” in 1989, and Mike Vescera in 2015. Includes “NEVER AGAIN” and “SOLDIER OF FORTUNE” from “LOUD PARK 15” that appeared with Vescera.
