Alcatrazz - No Parole From Rock 'N' Roll 1983

Genre: Rock
Format: FLAC + cue + log
Released: 1983
Label: Grand Slamm

1. I'll keep this short. Its Malmsteens first "real" band with the excellent Graham Bonnett (ex-Rainbow) on vocals. Every song is an absolute gem, a melodic heaven, and the solo on Hiroshima Mon Amour has to be heard to be believed. Its Malmsteen's best ever. Pure melodic hard rock that grabs your attention. You owe it to yourself to hear these songs.

2. When this album was released back in 1984 it didn't leave my turntable (!) for literally weeks.
Originally released on Rocshire Records with a major label distribution deal, this was the uniting of Ex-Rainbow & MSG front man Graham Bonnet with the 21 year old guitar whiz Yngwie Malmsteen. That union lasted two albums, this one and a live album......
