|SHERIFF - Sheriff [Rock Candy remaster] (2012) |
It has been requested so many times, so here it is; 'Remastered & Reloaded' by Rock Candy Records last year, Freddy Curci's SHERIFF self titled album featuring
as bonus the much sought after rare live record, of which only 100 were
pressed on vinyl back in the early '80s.
At the time of release, it's fair to say that Sheriff was dismissed by
music critics as yet another melodic Canadian melodic rock band
deploying the kind of AOR that could be heard anywhere, anytime. One of a
long list of similar sounding acts such as Loverboy, Streetheart and
But then, completely out of the blue, some seven years later, something rather unexpected happened...
Initially issued in 1982, Sheriff's debut album failed to ignite the
public's consciousness. Sure, it was a fine record with all the
accoutrements expected of such work but the bands appeal was severely
dented by inadequate promotion and a crowded market place.
Amazingly, in 1989 DJ started spinning the power ballad "When I'm With
You", a song that quickly gained momentum at virtually every radio station resulting in a US #1 hit single. This was a unique and totally
overwhelming event and one that made everyone reassess the Sheriff album
in an entirely new light.
Pompous and grandiose, Sheriff's style is perfectly in alignment with all the great AOR bands of the early eighties, offering up huge hooks, ripping guitar work and killer keyboard arrangements. The icing on the cake, however, is Freddy Curci's amazing vocals, a man blessed with a range
that evokes the greatest work of Freddy Mercury and Steve Perry.
Great 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, seven bonus tracks, 3,500 word essay about the making of the
album, band involvement and additional photos spread out over a 16 page
full colour booklet.
A must have.
