Alcatrazz No Parole From Rock N Roll on 2LP

The American heavy metal band Alcatrazz was formed in Los Angeles in 1983 by vocalist Graham Bonnet, (Rainbow) bassist Gary Shea,(New England) and keyboardist Jimmy Waldo, (New England). The band was first meant to feature ex-Nazareth guitarist Zal Cleminson and ex-Jethro Tull drummer Barriemore Barlow, but they both had commitments in Europe and pulled out at the last moment.

Instead the group found Yngwie Malmsteen through their manager Andy Truman, who had heard about the young Swedish guitarist from a friend at Ozz Records. Guitarist Laurence Juber (Wings) had been auditioned, but was not right for the group's vision. Shea named the group Alcatrazz and Bonnet coined the phrase "Thinking Man's Heavy Metal." A number of drummers were brought in including Ayensly Dunbar (Journey), Bill Lordan (Robin Trower), and Clive Burr (Iron Maiden). Jan Uvena (Alice Cooper) was eventually chosen as the group's new drummer. 

A recording deal was secured with Rocshire/M.C.A. Records and Dennis Mackay (Jeff Beck, Al DiMeola) was brought in to produce. The result was the band's gold certified 1983 debut album No Parole From Rock N Roll which yielded the famous singles "Island in the Sun" and "Jet to Jet" and led to a a 40 city tour across North America with Ted Nugent. This new 2LP edition from Let Them Eat Vinyl comes complete with a second LP of bonus tracks!
