Based in Hudiksvall in 1983, Sweden, and active between 1983-1987, MADISON was one of the most prestigious Swedish Hard Rock/ Hair Metal groups of the mid 80’s. The line-up of the band in 1986 consisted of the young Göran Edman (vocals, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum etc.), Anders Kalson (guitar), Mikael Myllynen (guitar), Conny Sundqvist (bass) and Peter Fredrickson (drums). During the time of their existence, MADISON released two albums, i.e. “Diamond Mistress” (1984) and “Best In Show” (1986).The group had major success in Japan where they also went on tour after the release of the “Best In Show” album. This record was mainly produced at Studio 39 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Jörgen Bo and contains the band’s most successful track “Oh Rendez Vous”. Sonet Records/Universal Music released this record in 1986 in Europe on vinyl only; in Japan it also got a CD release at the time.Pride & Joy Music now, in co-operation with Universal Music Sweden, releases this record for the first time on CD in Europe. The music was taken from the original masters and remastered. The original artwork from the vinyl edition built the foundation for the newly created CD booklet. Some pictures from the archives and two bonus tracks (“The Look In Your Eyes” and “The Tale”) were added.
Thanks to Pride & Joy Records whom seems to be jumped as well into the reissue / remastered wagon, here's another Swedish outfit from the mid-Eighties which deserve to be listened by all Melodic Hard Rock aficionados; MADISON, featuring talented Goran Edman. "Best In Show" is their second and final album, only released in Japan and very hard to find for decades.Now "Best In Show [Digitally Remastered +2]" has been tweaked with a vibrant, bright remastering job and featuring two bonus tracks, including the rare Japan maxi single 'The Tale', for the first time on CD.After a quite rocking debut album, Madison's second effort "Best In Show" is much more melodic and accessible according to times, 1986, featuring the earlier flexes of the Goran Edman vocal chords.This melodic hard rock in the Scandinavian vein, but with a twist.What separated Madison from so many others of the time is that you always had the sense that there were more possibilities at hand, a certain sense of potential grandeur and this is backed up by tracks such as 'Out of the Bunker' where there is a feeling of the epic creeping in, sort of a band very much of hard rockers proving that they knew all about the heartbeat of metal as well.And further evidence that they also were ready for the commercial Europe style of The Final Countdown comes from the melodies and hooks of 'World Wide Man' and many other tracks here.Additionally, the band's sound is different thanks to the very 'North American' vocal styling by Edman, not so common into a Scandi band from the era."Best In Show" is a quite unknown - as it is Madison - Scandinavian melodic hard rock album from the '80s, perhaps because only was release in Japan. It's a very good collection of elaborated tunes in the genre, with an occasional straight hard rocker for good effect. And you can hear a young Goran Edman with all his potential.Limited edition of 1000 copies, so get yours asap.
