Back To The World is a powerful concept album dealing with America's social issues, the aftermath of the Vietnam War, the environment (years before it became fashionable), as well as Curtis' optimism for the future.
The ex-Styx lead singer had a US Top 10 hit with 1984’s ‘Desert Moon’ with the album of the same name making the Billboard Top 30. ‘Back To The World’ also made the Top 200 albums. Since then DeYoung fell out of style, but from 2000 he has had a most successful solo career. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with new notes. Any Styx fan should have at least ‘Back To The World’ in their collection and on this 2-albums-on-1 CD you can’t go wrong.
The long-awaited live album from Dirkschneider's 'Back To The Roots' was released on October 28th via AFM Records. The singer with the charismatic voice had his musical breakthrough with ACCEPT in the early 80s. 'It's still so much fun to sing these songs live, they are a part of my biography, but nevertheless it's about time to turn that page. There was so much talking and speculations about me and ACCEPT, so this is kind of a musical statement from my end - which seems to be very interesting for the fans who came to these shows'. The album 'LIVE - Back To The Roots' has been recorded at the sold out show at 'Kaminwerk' in Memmingen on April 2nd, 2016…
DIRKSCHNEIDER, the band fronted by former ACCEPT and current U.D.O. singer Udo Dirkschneider, will release a live album called "Live - Back To The Roots" on October 28 via AFM Records. The effort, which was recorded on April 2 at Kaminwerk in Memmingen, Germany, will be made available as two-CD digipak. Dirkschneider's "Back To The Roots" tour features him performing ACCEPT songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good. The trek was recently recognized with a "Sold Out" award after 31 of the 48 European shows were sold out. "It's unbelievable, " says Udo. "I never expected this tour to be so successful. It's beautiful to see how many people walk with me on my personal way of saying goodbye to the ACCEPT chapter."
