Axel Rudi Pell – The Ballads 1-3

Axel Rudi Pell – The Ballads 1-3

20th December 2018 0 By John Deaux

Long out of print and worthy of a remaster, SPV/Steamhammer have indeed remastered and reissued Axel Rudi Pells The Ballads, volumes 1, 2 and 3

Each album is a double and include a single CD version in a paper sleeve as an added bonus. These albums contain some stupendous guest vocalists including Jeff Scott Soto and Rob Rock.

If you’ve never heard or see these albums before, there are a few tracks that were issued on previous albums but also a fair few tracks that haven’t. There’s even versions of classic tracks such as Deep Purples, When a Blind Man Cries, Rainbows Tearin’ Out My Heart

as well as a cool version of Hey Joe (which was made famous by Jimi Hendrix many moon ago).

These 3 volumes of Pells are a worthy purchase as it shows the softer side and yet STILL the virtuosity of his guitar playing and his vocal talent, and these new versions sound freaking amazing now.

Even if you only just discovered Axel Rudi Pell due to the monstrous 2018 album that was Knights Call, these 3 albums dating from the early 90’s are a must have.

They really are just jaw dropping. If you’re thinking of just buying one, treat yourself and buy all three. It’s rude not to 😉
Score 10/10 each
