Based in Hudiksvall, 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.

 

“Best In Show” is now available as ltd. edition CD (1000 copies only) with two bonus tracks added and only while stock will last!
