Digitally remastered edition of this 1984 album from the British Hard Rock quartet. Export were formed by guitarist Steve Morris and featured vocalist Harry Shaw, previously a member of highly touted early '70s rockers Hard Stuff. Following the release of a now highly collectable independently released album, Export were spotted and championed by '60s chart topper Dave Dee, who honed and shaped them in the form of tough yet melodic UK Hard Rock success stories such as Foreigner and Bad Company. Early demos were cut with none other than future Yes guitarist Trevor Rabin. Amazingly, the bands strident brand of melodic Hard Rock caught the ear of Epic Records in New York, resulting in the first of two albums for the label. Contraband showcases a superb collection of sophisticated melodic Hard Rock from the hands of gifted songwriters and first rate players.
