For the first time ever on vinyl, Twisted Sister and Friday Music have teamed up to create the ultimate heavy metal hits collection with Twisted Sister’s Greatest Hits – Tear It Loose (Studio & Live). Compiled and mastered from the original Atlantic Records tape vaults by Twisted Sister’s co-founder Jay Jay French and Joe Reagoso, this long-overdue release contains a stellar overview of the band’s remarkable gold-and-platinum career.
Due on January 14, the five-star deluxe two-LP set includes classic Atlantic Records studio tracks like “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” “Under The Blade,” “I Wanna Rock,” “Leader Of The Pack,” “Wake Up (The Sleeping Giant),” “You Can’t Stop Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Shoot ‘Em Down.” The second half of this amazing album contains a 20-year historical compilation of the bands favorite U.K. concert performances from the Marquee club, Hammersmith Odeon and the Astoria. Hard-hitting smashes like “Stay Hungry,” “Like A Knife In The Back,” “S.M.F.,” “Destroyer” and “Tear It Loose” truly are some of the finest heavy metal live tracks ever caught on tape.
This super-limited-edition two-LP set will be manufactured for a very limited time on translucent gold vinyl.
To further enhance your Twisted Sister experience, the band has included new 2021 commentary from Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Mark Mendoza and Eddie Ojeda in the liner notes, updated discography information per track, as well as artist-approved gatefold cover art featuring stunning live concert photos from the lens of Håkon Grav.
