(Classic Rock) Saxon have unveiled details of an album containing alternate takes of some of their classic songs. The 14-track record features orchestral, acoustic and re-recorded versions. It's entitled Unplugged And Strung Up, and appears in stores on November 18.

The band say: "We re-evaluated, re-worked and re-energised the likes of The Eagle Has Landed and Crusader by introducing orchestral dynamics to offer added dimension.

"Frozen Rainbow, from our 1979 debut, gets a stunning acoustic reprisal which transports it into a power ballad to be proud of; while Red Star Falling soars and sweeps through emotions with its orchestrally-arranged dovetail." More details including the tracklisting.
