Found RLH via a Facebook ad and decided to give them a try. I wasn’t disappointed. Fast shipping and great communication through out, even got a personalised note. Support a small business and pay less than at JB. Win-win.

Why you need this album…

The Final Countdown is the third studio album by the Swedish hard rock band Europe.  Released in 1986, the album was a huge commercial success selling over 3 million units in the United States alone, peaking at number 8 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and reaching high positions in charts worldwide.

Recorded at Powerplay Studios in Zürich, Switzerland, the band worked with American producer Kevin Elson, who had worked with bands like Journey and Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Rock The Night and Ninja premiered on the band’s Wings of Tomorrow tour in 1984. Five singles were released from the album: The Final CountdownLove ChaserRock the Night, Carrie, and Cherokee.

The song The Final Countdown was based on an old keyboard riff that Tempest had composed as early as 1981-82, on a Korg Polysix keyboard he had borrowed from Michaeli.  In 1985 bassist John Levén suggested that Tempest should write a song based on that riff. The rest is Pop history.
