The Atlantic Years 1984 - 1990 = 5 CD Set = (CD)
Taking inspiration from Aerosmith and Van Halen, Ratt originally formed in Hollywood in the mid-1970s, eventually releasing the independent 'Dr. Rock' single in 1980, before contributing a track to the highly influential "Metal Masacre" compilation in1981, and their independently released, self-titled mini-album in 1983. But Ratt finally made their mark when Stephen Pearcy (vocals), Robbin Crosby (guitar), Warren DeMartini (guitar), Juan Croucier (bass) and Bobby Blotzer (drums) signed to Atlantic Records in 1984 for the "Out Of The Cellar" LP. Their tuneful hard rock found favour with both radio and on MTV, where clips for singles 'Round And Round' and 'Back For More' received heavy rotation. A big influence on the growing glam and hair metal scene based around LA's Sunset Strip, "Out of The Cellar" would soon reach triple platinum status. The radio edit of 'Round And Round' is included as a bonus track. In 1985, Ratt followed up their full length debut with "Invasion Of Your Privacy". Produced by Beau Hill (Alice Cooper, Kix, Winger, Warrant, Fiona, Europe), and featuring the singles 'Lay It Down' and 'You're In Love', Ratt's popularity wasn't confined to the States, as they would make fans as far afield as Japan, as well as inclusion on the UK's legendary Monsters Of Rock festival in 1985, on a bill featuring ZZ Top, Marillion, Bon Jovi & Metallica. "Invasion Of Your Privacy" would eventually make double platinum sales, and includes 'What You Give Is What You Get' (Single Edit) as a bonus track. Not wasting any time, and again with Beau Hill at the helm, Ratt released "Dancing Undercover" in 1986. Lead single 'Dance' would make a healthy dent on the charts, as well as featuring in an episode of Miami Vice, whilst 'Body Talk' would be included on the soundtrack to Eddie Murphy's "The Golden Child". A single edit of 'Dance' has been added to the album. Fourth album "Reach For The Sky" (1988) was the last album to be produced by Beau Hill, and was co-produced with Mike Stone (Queen). Featuring the single 'Way Cool Jr.', "Reach ForThe Sky" racked up platinum sales, proving that Ratt could still reach the US top 20. The MTV Unplugged version of 'Way
