Alkana - 'Welcome to my paradise' reissue requests

Beitragvon Prof » 3. Februar 2010, 13:18

Anyone interested in a possible reissue of Alkana's hard-to-find and vinyl-only epic heavy rock album 'Welcome to my paradise' from 1977, please post your name in this thread.
First name and label that popped into my head as I heard Alkana's 'The tower' (21 mighty hails go out to the Sarge and Rantanplan), were Denis Bergeron and Rockadrome. Having already put long lost classics by Ashbury, Winterhawk, Amulet, Ultra, Legend and others back into the limelight, Rockadrome would be the suitable candidate to add Alkana's one-off to their catalogue.
Alkana was guitarist Danney Alkana's baby. Plans to reissue the album on vinyl were announced by Danney himself a few years back, but unfortunately nothing has materialized so far. Perhaps a little incentive is needed here. So let's see how many - or few? - of you proudly stubborn oldschoolers are interested, and a week or so from now we'll forward the URL to Denis. D'accord?

Absolutely d'accord.
We want that!
For all the words unspoken, for all the deeds undone,
for all our shattered dreams, for all the songs unsung,
for all the lines unwritten and all our broken hearts,
for all our wounds still bleeding and all our kingdoms come.

I do not only request a Rockadrome reissue, I insist it's gonna be released on that label!

Great idea, prof. This album deserves a re-release, a great piece of early Hard Rock/Proto-Metal with a truely legendary vocalist and it would fit perfectly to Rockadrome. I'd prefer a vinyl re-release though.
Muss rispettieren die andere Kollega!

Nice to see the response, we're getting somewhere. In case anyone missed Rantanplan's link to the wonderful Alkana-song 'The tower', here it is for your listening pleasure and convenience.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgYqFgoT ... re=related

And lest I forget: the vocals on this mini-masterpiece come courtesy of none other than Jack Rucker.
'Jack who?' you ask. Well, the Damien King I (or II, I never was any good with numbers) who was in Warlord, legendary US-metal masters who left us with a modest yet majestic legacy to which we still bow our heads in supreme unworthiness.
Just so you know who we're dealing with here.

Pure magic, that is.

Never heard of it before, but after listening to the youtube link, I think that one deserves a very good re-release
