Y&T confirm six-album set

yandtY&T have confirmed the release of a four-disc set titled Earthquake: The A&M Years 1981-85, which will include six studio albums, B-sides and a set of rare live recordings.

Dave Meniketti’s veteran band joined A&M Records soon after changing their name from the longer Yesterday And Today. Their releases via the label included 1981′s defining moment Earthshaker, along with Black Tiger and Out For The Count, neither of which have been legally available in Europe for some time.

Live tracks from the Reading Festival in 1982 and Monsters Of Rock in 1984 are also included in a collection which the label describes as “definitive”. They add: “If you want to hear Y&T in their prime, if you want to get a taste of why they were regarded as one of the world’s greatest hard rock bands, the music on these four CDs is all you need. It represents the glory age of a glorious band.”

Y&T completed their latest UK tour last month and are midway through a European trek, taking in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Sweden and Spain.
