Symbol of Salvation is the fourth album by American heavy metal band Armored Saint. It was released in 1991 on Metal Blade Records. The songs on this album were written and demoed between 1988 and 1991 with original guitarist Dave Prichard who died of leukemia prior to recording. The first guitar solo on "Tainted Past" was lifted from a 1989 4-track demo recorded by Prichard. The album was produced by Dave Jerden, who had produced Alice In Chains and Jane's Addiction albums before and Anthrax's first album with Armored Saint singer John Bush Sound of White Noise later.
The Soul Music label's extensive Nancy Wilson reissue series continues with the singer's 20th and 21st albums for the Capitol label: The Sound of Nancy Wilson and Nancy.

The latter, a more stylistically varied album released in 1969, boasts the number 44 R&B single "You'd Better Go" and the brisk pop of "In a Long White Room." Both sets were produced by David Cavanaugh with arranging and conducting from Jimmy Jones. This is another loving, fan-pleasing release of long-out-of-print Wilson titles.

The last swing craze was fueled by the sheer joy and enthusiasm that good big band music can inspire; Hampton’s recordings are no exception. If Brian Setzer ever needs some inspiration, he would be wise to check out these recordings.
