Delicious Vinyl proudly issues a double-disc pack from heavy rock legends Masters Of Reality, combining their 1988 debut album Masters Of Reality with 1997's How High The Moon: Live At The Viper Room. Both of these heavy rock thrillers were captained by Masters Of Reality founder and frontman Chris Goss. Fans of Queens Of The Stone Age should recognize the name Chris Goss. The Godfather of the California desert rock scene that blossomed in Joshua Tree, Goss produced QOTSA's breakthrough album 'Rated R' in 2000 and received a Grammy nomination for his work on their 2007 release 'Era Vulgaris'. Masters Of Reality has the distinction of being the only artist signed to both Def Jam and Delicious Vinyl. Originally label mates with Public Enemy and Slayer, Masters Of Reality's self-titled debut album was released by Def American in 1988. Two years later, Delicious Vinyl founders Matt Dike and Mike Ross, huge Masters fans, bought the band's contract from Rick Rubin and re-released the album to renewed acclaim. When Masters began disintegrating on tour, Goss relocated to Los Angeles and rebuilt his engine in the form of a new line-up of the band. That's the revitalized line-up that recorded the stunning live album How High The Moon: Live At The Viper Room. High points of this release include "Magical Spell", restored here to its majestic five minute lascivious trawl, and the live rendition of "John Brown", which swings like a guillotine as perhaps only Led Zeppelin ever had before. Get your mitts on this Masters of Reality masterpiece!

If you look up my review on Master's of Reality, self titled, I provide a fair background on the band that pretty much reflects how I feel about this double CD offering.
As I mentioned in that review...
"The album's main strength is its diversity, some songs are ultra-heavy, or gentle dreamy blues, acoustic mid tempo numbers, subtle or extremely brutal. Zeppelin power chords are present,with a progressive fusion groove."
Chris Goss - vocals, guitar
Tim Harrington - lead guitar
Googe - bass
Vinnie Ludovico - drums
The price is definitely right at Amazon. This would be the best $20.00 that you will ever spend including freight. Trust me.
For previews of music and videos not available on Amazon, check out Master of Reality's (full album) out on You Tube.
I'm looking forward to unearthing the hidden treasure that is the "Masters of Reality". The adventure begins.
God I love discovering great music from the past and present. BTW, I only review what I like, what is the sense in reviewing crap that you wouldn't buy anyways.
