Mr. Big ‘Lean Into It’ Remastered – Limited VINYL/LP – Record Store Day 2021 – Billy Sheehan, Paul Gilbert, Eric Martin
First released in 1991, Lean Into It is the second studio album by the American rock supergroup Mr. Big (Paul Gilbert, Eric Martin, Billy Sheehan, and Pat Torpey). This is the band’s breakthrough release – Lean Into It peaked at #15 on the Billboard 200 charts, while the single “To Be with You” became the band’s first and only song to hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The follow-up single, “Just Take My Heart”, was a Top 20 hit, peaking at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Lean Into It shows that Mr. Big could strip away all the flash and seven-minute solos and simply create well-written songs with rhythm, groove, and good melodies, making the band one of the iconic new wave of progressive “musician’s bands” who could play mind-blowing complicated riffs on their instruments at lightning speeds.
This is one of the ever-green albums of ‘80s-style hair band rock that transcends the years and 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the release. evoxs is remastering the album using hi-resolution digital transfers from the original analog master tapes and will be manufactured as a high quality 180g limited numbered vinyl – solid red as part of RSD Drops. A vinyl version has only ever been released in the USA as a ‘Record Club’ edition and has been out of print worldwide for over 20 years.
