(Chipster) Rock Candy Records will be launching their U.S. operation with deluxe disc re-releases from Sammy Hagar, The Nymphs, Salty Dog And Tyketto This Friday, November 18, 2016. We were sent these details about the reissues:

Sammy Hagar 'All Night Long': Sammy Hagar's early studio work was often considered rather dull compared to his work with Montrose, but his1978 live album suddenly reversed that criticism. Most live records are compromised by studio fixes but this record is pure dynamite - warts and all. Sammy's performance is phenomenal and the energy level is through the roof.

Nymphs 'S/T': The Nymphs were signed to Geffen Records in the late 80s on a wave of hope and excitement. Fronted by Inger Lorre, she soon attracted a reputation for being controversial, volatile and unapologetic. She was unquestionably the real deal - and this record is a bonafide snapshot from the edge of Hollywood Babylon during a time when music was being revolutionized in Los Angeles.

Salty Dog 'Everydog Has It's Day': Formed in Los Angeles during the late 80s, Salty Dog honed their chops and assembled a line-up that was very different from what was happening on MTV. Indeed, the band's style incorporated a number of influences, from the old school rock of Led Zeppelin to the contemporary cut and thrust of Guns 'N Roses. It was a sound that paid homage to the blues; that's the vintage gnarly influences of Muddy Waters and T-Bone Walker.

Tyketto 'Don't Come Easy': The early 90's presented a massive challenge to melodic rock bands, with the musical climate being transformed by grunge, a rush of angry young men playing stripped down rock built on angst and melancholy. For Tyketto this landscape meant that their arrival would be subjected to a chilly reception. Undaunted they were signed to industry giant Geffen Records and cut this, their powerful debut album. Inexplicably, the label sat on the completed record for over a year, but by then it was already too late.
