Def Leppard has released an “inside the album” style video for their 1981 album “High ‘N’ Dry”. The album will turn forty years old in July of 2021. During its formative years in the late 1970s, Def Leppard became one of the hottest properties to emerge from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. For its sophomore release, “High ‘N’ Dry”, the Sheffield quintet turned to a new producer, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, whose credits included AC/DC’s multi-platinum “Back In Black”.
“It was almost like army discipline, but he got great performances out of everyone that we’d never have got otherwise,” said vocalist Joe Elliott. “We were rudderless and he gave us a direction, which was what we desperately needed.”
