The first two L.A. Guns records; 1988's self-titled debut and 1989's 'Cocked & Loaded' are being reissued.
The releases come with the following trimmings: 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, weighty essay's about the making of the record, full artist involvement, new interviews, enhanced artwork and additional photos spread out over large full colour booklets -- both are available for purchase at www.rockcandyrecords.com.
If you're looking for the Godfather of the early eighties LA rock scene, then guitarist Tracii Guns is your man. A hustler, a human dynamo and a hugely talented band leader, Guns broad-shouldered his way onto the Hollywood strip with a succession of fledgling acts, including Hollywood Rose a band that evolved into the legendary Guns N' Roses.
The platinum selling album 'Cocked & Loaded' was recorded in Los Angeles with seasoned producers Tom Werman (Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Cheap Trick) alongside Duane Barron and John Purdell (Poison, Ozzy, Heart) and featured guest appearances from Ted Nugent, Derek St. Holmes, Robin Zander and Rick Nielson. It confirmed that L.A. Guns were more than just a flash in the pan by storming the US charts and producing two bonafide hit singles with "Never Enough" and "The Ballad Of Jayne".
