All CD / LP titles have been remastered from the original master tapes by mastering engineer Pete Maher (u2, White Stripes...) under the supervision of Mike Peters.

The comprehensive re-mastering process has been undertaken to ensure the music of The Alarm can be listened to by future generations as intended by the band, when recorded and committed to tape for all time.

Strength is being released through The Twenty First Century Recording Company - which has been ‘home’ to all Mike Peters and The Alarm music since 1994.

Painstakingly put together by Mike Peters from original sources, the 'Strength 1985-1986' CD Edition brings together all three original 1985/86 Alarm singles and B-sides from the era, two of which have never been released in CD or digital formats, including the 'Strength 7" single version, and the 'Spirit Of '76 7" Single version.

Strength 1985-1986 has also has been restored to its original 1985 running order with the US version featuring on the CD that includes the album session version of 'Absolute Reality'.

STRENGTH 1985-1986 CD Editon - Features the US album along with the original 1985 7" version of Strength (with the guitar / vocal beginning), that has never been issued on CD before along with the 1986 7" single version of 'Spirit Of '76' which is also making its first ever appearance on CD. All four original 'Strength' period B-sides are included also. The Second disc features 22 previously unreleased album session recordings including outtake versions (with different lyrics and guitar parts), for every song on Strength including an outtake of the unreleased electric version of 'One Step Closer To Home'. An in studio jam session of spontaneous and impromptu covers of Led Zeppelin, The Who, Free, T-Rex, Lou Reed and Deep Purple are featured between tracks along with a complete run through of the previously unreleased live in the studio version of Rod Stewart's Maggie May which segues into re-workings of The Beats 'Stand Down Margaret' and Bob Dylan's 'Maggie's Farm', providing a fascinating insight into The Alarm working together in the studio on the way to creating their magnum opus.
