Triumph’s 1981 release, “Allied Forces” has been reissued as a 30th-anniversary vinyl edition.The album’s tracks are from the original source material (as prepared by the legendary Bob Ludwig), while the packaging itself exactly mirrors the original ’81 vinyl version (including the four-color, UV-coated inner sleeve, complete with photos, lyrics and credits). The record itself was pressed on pristine 180-gram vinyl, which also includes a free download card, so fans can download this rock ‘n’ roll classic, as well as a video, directly to their digital player. The LP is being manufactured by Rainbo Records in Los Angeles, the premier replicator of vinyl in North America. The album features two of Triumph’s most beloved and enduring arena rock anthems, “Magic Power” and “Fight the Good Fight”. Produced by the bandmembers, the nine-track album was certified platinum and has gone on to sell an impressive 2.5 million copies worldwide.
“I am excited that the ‘Allied Forces’ LP is being re-released,” said Levine. “Vinyl was always my favorite audio format, because it has really nice warmth and depth. Yet another reason to polish up the turntable and crank up the volume!”
