Alcatrazz – Disturbing The Peace- Expanded Version- CD Review

Alcatrazz – Disturbing The Peace- Expanded Version- CD Review

1st July 2016 1 By John Deaux

The latest in the Graham Bonnett series of re-issues of his band Alcatrazz who were formed back in 1983.

Disturbing The Peace  is Alcatrazzs’ 2nd album which features an up & coming guitar player by the name of little Stevie Vai & is the only Alcatrazz album Steve did.. Originally released back in 1985, this was the album that catapulted Alcatrazz to being a house hold name.

A lovely 4 panel digipak houses an audio CD complete with bonus tracks as well as a DVD of a Japanese concert filmed back in 1984.

The DVD looks & sounds great considering the footage is over 30 years old & of course the CD sounds brilliant & crystal clear.

The booklet features new liner notes by Malcolm Dome as well as rare images from this period of Alcatrazz
