Innocence Is No Excuse & Rock The Nation
Saxon - "Innocence Is No Excuse & Rock The Nation"
ALBUM TITLE: Innocence Is No Excuse & Rock The Nation
COUNTRY: United Kingdom
Alongside with Iron Maiden and Def Leppard, SAXON is one of the most popular bands among the NWOBHM ('New Wave Of British Heavy Metal'). They made their debut in 1979 and got to the top by issuing about two dozens studio- and live-albums for the past 20 years.
The sound improvement on these digital remastered albums is going on in January with three CDs. The ones that were released in the mid-80s (“Innocence Is No Excuse” (1985), “Rock The Nations” (1986) and also the album "Destiny", released in spring 1988) will be published with comprehensive and previously unreleased bonustracks: 7inch versions, B-sides, remixes, live tracks from the 'Hammersmith Odeon', London, from Madrid or the 'Reading Festival' - all in all 20 tracks evenly spread on 3 CDs. The appropiate booklets along with liner notes and an assortement of rare photos were chosen in association with lead singer Biff Byford.
