Description

1980’s Romeo’s Daughter were, undoubtedly, viewed as the great white hope; they were the saviours of the scene, the band most likely to succeed. And let’s face it they had it all; an astonishing lead vocalist, killer musicianship, superbly crafted songs and a dedicated label. What could go wrong? Sadly this story didn’t have a fairy tale ending. The band’s debut album was produced by Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange (Def Leppard, Foreigner ect), and received a tidal wave of accolades setting them up for album #2. But in an effort to work with Lange second time around the band put their career on ice, biding time until the great man was once again available. Time, however, waits for no man, and, after enduring a prolonged hiatus, the band ended up label less with little prospect of Lange returning to the fold. Switching to the independent Music For Nations label, they took the bull by the horns and got back to work crafting a stunning follow up to their critically lauded debut. It is a record stuffed to the gills with choice songs and exceptional vocal performances from Leigh Matty, proving that the band’s worth was just as valuable if not more so. That ‘Delectable’ ultimately failed to secure a foot hold to enormo-dome success was not the fault of the band or record, but more a sign of the times. Yet despite everything it remains one of the most revered albums of the period. This is a special limited deluxe collector’s edition with a bonus track. It has been remastered with sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology and is packaged with a 16 page full colour booklet and 4,000 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the artist.
