(VA) White Hot: An All Out Metal Assault

(Megaupload Link)

I remember buying this collection on cassette round about 1985 when it first came out, about a year after I first got into Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. Most of the songs and artists I had already been familiar with from the previous year, whether it's yer Kiss, your Rush, Scorpions, Lee Aaron or Slade (or even Krokus, whom I had only been familiar with by virtue of Hit Parader magazine and Midnite Maniac's brief appearance on Toronto radio station Q107's Top Ten At Ten in the Summer of 1984). But the others, were pleasant discoveries. And note the requisite inclusion of Canadian Content here: Rush, Lee Aaaron, Kick Axe, Fist.

All tracks on this collection are winners. And that's a rare thing to happen, even on Various Artist compilations.

I recently got back into the whole HR/HM thing and thought I'd post this album. Leave it to K-Tel/PolyTel to come out with cheesy, yet delighful collections.

And to think they went out of business.

I remember this was my older brother's cassette, and my older sister swiped it from him around 89 when I was with her (I was in kindergarten), then my brother found it and swiped it back from her around 91 when her car was totaled and he found it in her glove box, then I swiped it from him about 6 months later and played it until about 03 when he somehow found it in my car and swiped it back. It took me years to find the track listings alone, and this... this is phenominal, thanks man.
