Yngwie Malmsteen box set imminent

February 2015 sees the release of ‘Now Your Ships Are Burned’, a four CD anthology of work recorded by Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen.  The set covers his years with Polydor Records from 1984-1990.

The set will be a domestic budget priced reissue of the previously Japanese only collection which included the first six albums.  Like similar sets from Saxon (‘The Carrere Years’) and Tangerine Dream (‘The Virgin Years’), the length of the albums is such that six releases can easily be condensed into a 4CD package.

The set is to include ‘Rising Force’, ‘Marching Out’, ‘Trilogy’, ‘Eclipse’, ‘Live In Leningrad’ and fan favourite ‘Odyssey’, featuring ex-Rainbow vocalist Joe Lynn Turner.

The beginning of 2015 is an exciting time for Joe Lynn Turner fans, as the veteran vocalist also has various unreleased live recordings issued as part of a six disc Rainbow anthology.  [Details here]
