Hard rock superstars White Lion (Mike Tramp, Vito Bratta and Co.) joined forces in 1983 in New York City and almost immediately after the release of their 1984 debut album Fight To Survive, major success would follow as they became one of the premiere rock acts in the business.
Thanks to their smash hit #1 "Eye Of The Tiger" from Rocky II, Survivor finally hit the top of the charts and began a succession of hit albums and huge chart topping singles making them one of the more legendary rock acts of all time. This hit single was the catalyst which would soon make them a major recording and touring act all over the world.
Blending elements of arena style rock and roll, alongside the powerful lead vocals of Danish powerhouse Mike Tramp and the blistering guitar work of NYC's Vito Bratta alongside the skillful bassist James LoMenzo and power drummer Greg D'Angelo, White Lion truly shaped the sound of rock and pop radio for many years with a string of hit records like "Wait," "Radar Love," "Cry For Freedom" and the power ballad Top # 5 anthem "When The Children Cry."
Throughout their tenure with Atlantic Records, White Lion would release some of the most memorable rock and pop songs ever waxed. Wonderful rockers like "Hungry," "Tell Me," "Lady Of The Valley" and "Lights And Thunders" flourished all over the airwaves and MTV making these all modern day hard rock classics.
In the compact disc era, Atlantic Records awarded this amazing band with the fantastic collection The Best Of White Lion featuring all of their key hit singles, strong album tracks and rare live recordings from their strong tenure with the label group.
