From the twilight of music’s pre-digital era come two collections of remastered record releases by one of the best loved power rock bands of the day: DC Star. From the sweet harmonies of the first single “Blue Sparks” to the bone crushing thunder of “Fortuneteller” their sound was truly unique. Their high energy performances captivated audiences and inspired a new generation of rockers throughout the northeast.
Between 1977 and 1986 they released 2 singles on Secant Records, an EP picture disk and full length album on Escape Records; the later of which was re-released on Atlantic Records ATCO subsidiary Mirage Records. They also released songs on popular Baltimore, Washington & New York radio station compilation records and recorded several popular Miller Brewing Company radio commercials including “Welcome to Miller Time” and 1984′s banner ad “Made The American Way.”
DC Star’s 1985 Atlantic release “Rockin’ in the Classroom” was re-released on iTunes by Unidisc Music and the best 10 tracks from their other records are available on “The Best of DC Records 1977 – 83” from David and Goliath Music.
