Platinum Blonde

Canadian ’80s Rock Classics Re-Issued

Platinum Blonde’s quadruple platinum certified “Alien Shores” album and subsequent platinum certified release, “Contact“, will be re-released on vinyl on August 14th, 2020.

Alien Shores” was one of my very favourite Canadian rock albums from the ’80s, along with “Standing In The Dark“, the band’s double platinum debut LP (which was re-issued in mid-2018).

This Eddy Offord and Mark Holmes production features the platinum-selling single “Crying Over You” and other singles “Situation Critical”, “Somebody Somewhere” and “Hungry Eyes”, whose music videos are available on the band’s Official Youtube Channel.

Another prominent album of the period, Luba’s “Secrets and Sins“, has also just been issued on iTunes and Google Play.

Although this 1984 Daniel Lanois production featured hits “Let It Go”, “Everytime I See Your Picture”, “Storm Before Calm” and the title track, it only had a limited release on compact disc.

Her label at the time preferred releasing a now out of print best-of compilation entitled “Over 60 Minutes With” in 1987, which was excellent. But now fans will be able to download this album, her first full-length release.
