Northern California rockers Y&T will celebrate the reissues of "Earthshaker" (1981) and "In Rock We Trust" (1984) by performing both albums in their entirety on March 17 at the Independent in San Francisco.
Re-released last month, "Earthshaker" "was carefully digitally re-mastered in November 2006 at a high sampling rate taken directly from the 1/2" analog master tape. This new CD captures the sounds of the original mixes like no other version available." Also reissued in January, "In Rock We Trust" was "carefully digitally re-mastered in November 2006 at a high sampling rate taken directly from the digital master tape," according to a posting on the band's site. "This new CD sounds clear and open like no other version previously available. Along with the original songs, there is an additional bonus track of the rarely heard studio recording of 'Go for the Throat'."
