2CD's REMASTERED + BONUS TRACKS + FULL BOOKLET - If you like Whitesnake, Bonfire, Europe and melodic hard rock, you will love this reissue. Founded in 1987, CHINA made a significant impact with their Dirk Steffans produced debut album and their brand of heavy AOR. Formed by drummer John Dommen and guitarist Freddy Laurence, the duo quickly teamed up with vocalist Math Shiverow, ex-Bloody Six guitarist Claudio Matteo and former Stormbringer bassist Mac Lynn. Having gained a deal with Polygram, China were assisted in the recording of their debut album by Krokus vocalist Marc Storace, who also contributed backing vocals to the debut album, whilst Krokus guitarist Fernando Von Arb wrote the album track 'Back To You'. The second album, Sign in The Sky, found CHINA switching production into the hands of Stephen Galfas. More significantly, the record heralded a new era for the band bringing in former Crown and Krokus guitarist Patrick Mason and new bassist ex-Killer man Briam Kofmehl following the departures of both Math Shiverow and Marc Lynn respectively. The record surprisingly also featured guest backing vocals courtesy of former Grim Repaer vocalist Steve Grimmett. Interestingly, Mason's stay in CHINA was extremely short-lived and thus 1991's 'Live' mini-album introduced CHINA 's third vocalist, Eric St Michaels.
