|ZEBRA - Zebra [Rock Candy remaster] (2013) |
The first, self-titled album by ZEBRA is being reissued by Rock Candy in
their usual "Special Deluxe Collector's Edition" form, in a fully
remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology.
Zebra had been together since forming in the mid-seventies in New
Orleans. Led by guitarist, vocalist and primary songwriter Randy
Jackson, the group started to gain notoriety when they migrated to Long
Island, NY and furiously played in that area’s club and college scene.
Their music impressed Atlantic Records, who signed the group to a five album deal right out of the gate in late 1982.
This seemed like a wise business deal for the suits as "Zebra" became
the fastest selling debut record in Atlantic Records history when it
sold over 75,000 copies in its first week and spent eight months on the
Billboard charts, peaking at number 29 (Gold certified).
Among the strong nine tracks, the album spawned the successful singles -
now classics - "Tell Me What You Want" and "Who's Behind The Door",
skilfully produced by veteran Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Alice Cooper,
Cheap Trick) obtaining a clear and polished sound.
I always loved the melodic dynamics of leader Randy Jackson, as he fused
some of the best arena rock of the '70s with the melodic rock, hard and
rock&pop sensibilities of the '80s.
With the exception of the out-of-place, boogie-rock cover song ("Slow Down"), all the tracks on Zebra's debut are winners.
Zebra followed up their this one with the more commercially oriented
1984 album No Tellin’ Lies - recently remastered by Rock Candy too and
to be featured here soon.
