Paganini is a hard rock band from Switzerland founded by Marco Paganini (ex-member of the band Viva). In 1985 they released their debut album, Weapon of Love. The song "Berlin by Night", was in the soundtrack of the German movie Alpha City.In the early 1980’s, Marco Paganini was the lead vocalist in the Hannover based rock group Viva. At the time he was singing in the pioneering English metal band Tygers of pan tang, when he was discovered by Barbara Schenker at a double bill with The Scorpions. Rudolph Schenker invited him to join them on their return to Germany and taking them up on the offer Marco and Barbara formed Viva together. Being one of the top European acts at the time, Marco recorded 2 LP’s with Viva, before embarking on a solo career.Along with Viva guitarist Ralph Murphy, Marco returned to Switzerland to form the group Paganini. Their first release “Weapon of love”, spawned the hit “Berlin by night”, which reached the charts in Germany thru Polygram, and as well landed on the movie soundtrack for “Alpha city”. The follow up album “It’s a long way to the top” saw chart action again and earned them the offer of support act for Motley Crue on their “Theater of pain” tour.Several releases followed thru the years including the album “Detox” which Marco recorded together withAngie Schiliro one time guitarist with Kingdom Come which as well features the track “Time” which was written by Prince for Marco while at Paisley Park thru his association with Polygram. 2 singles entitled “My life” and “Follow the sun” saw Marco.reunited with his old producer Vic Vergeat of the rock group “Toad” In 2003 Marco teamed up with New York producer ZouZou Mamoux to record the CD“Esoterrorism”, their cryptic reflections of the modern times we live in and a call to arms for society as a whole. In 2005, Marco and ZouZou finished the new production entitled “Resurrection”, which is a celebration of Paganini’s distigushed repetoire re-recorded in a modern context, inspired by countless requests for the classic tracks from Marco’s large fan base.
Excellent Munich based label Yesterrock specializing in re-releasing classic albums, managed to put out the first 2 records by PAGANINI, both impeccably digitally remastered and containing bonus tracks. "It's A Long Way To The Top" is the second album from Swiss / German melodic hard rock band PAGANINI, and it rocks greatly in an American fashion.After the success of their debut album - at least in Germany, Switzerland and Austria - PAGANINI took over 2 years to compose, arrange and record second effort "It's A Long Way To The Top".If you've listened to the band's debut, let me tell you this is almost a completely different beast.The aim with the new album was to conquer the American market, hence the material is oriented to the sound & style ruling the Rock scene in US 1987.But not only the songs in "It's A Long Way To The Top" are pretty party rock / hair metal / melodic hard rock oriented: now PAGANINI feels million times tighter as unit, the musicianship is more complete, and essentially; production is very good, bright n' punchy.There's 'that' reverb on the drums making all sounding huge, guitars are bigger, the backing vocals soar and Mark's lead voice is clear and more sexy.On "It's A Long Way To The Top", overall PAGANINI sounds a lot like AUTOGRAPH (title track 'It's a Long Way to the Top', 'Mr. Big Mouth') and VAN HALEN ('Rich Girl', 'One of a Kind'). As you see, absolutely American oriented.And it doesn't ends there: 'Salted Water Kisses' has some HELIX on it, the pretty killer 'Our Rock Will Find a Way' a bit of RATT, while 'Hold You Back' (again some HELIX) adds more bite to the guitars and is one of my favorites.Surprisingly, there's no room for a power ballad on the album, quite strange for the era.PAGANINI's "It's A Long Way To The Top" is million times better than the band's debut, in all departments. It's a pure '80s American Melodic Hard Rock affair, and while some may miss the band's early European flavor, this album is far superior than debut.I still remember being a teenager, this album was one of the 'rare pieces' to hunt down. It never was easy to find / buy, becoming a much sought after piece by collectors.Yesterrock solved this with this very good remastered reissue, but this reissue dates from some years ago and has become pretty scarce again, quite hard to find.Pure '80s stuff requested by one of you in this remastered version.
