All tracks are digitally remastered by Anthony Focx, who has worked with the likes of BUCKCHERRY and THE DEAD DAISIES.

Stephen Craig, Eonian Records Founder, "We hope music fans will enjoy these two releases as much as we did putting it all together. Anthony Focx did a masterful job with the recordings. Also, the level of detail is incredible. Both albums feature 20-page booklets with in-depth history of the band's time in West Hollywood, including nearly 150 photos and flyers provided from the band, friends, and fans' personal archives. To top things off, custom hand-drawn artwork by none other than Jesse Vital of V1TAL World Creative."

Kent Kleven, TAZ lead singer, "We are really excited about these two releases. The 35 tracks between Wake Up & Sweat, Vol. 1 and Shipwrecked, Vol. 2 span our entire career. Every studio recording is represented. Many of which were never made available to the public. Of the studio recordings, two of the many highlights were us working with producer Rob Cavallo (GREEN DAY, BLACK SABBATH) & Warner Brothers, as well as with Kim Vincent Fowley, who produced "SEX", "LA Danger Zone", "She Does Bad Things Good", and "Missing You". Fowley worked with everyone from the Modern Lovers to Ariel Pink and produced the first demos for the iconic power pop band CANDY. Anthony Focx remastered both albums, and did such an amazing job! We also had over a dozen live tracks to choose from, and we settled on six taken from Whisky a Go Go, Club Sasch, and Gazzarri's. It's been such a surreal experience to see this all come together. We're truly grateful to our label, Eonian Records, as well as our longtime fans who had a hand in bringing this project to life."

Originally formed in 1983, TAZ started out in Orange County as MANIAC THRUST. Founding members, singer/songwriter Kent Kleven and guitarist/songwriter Ethan Gladstone had known each other since elementary school, forming their first musical project together while attending junior high. In 1985, the band changed their name to TAZ while adding new bassist Chris Roy, a high school friend of Ethan's, and drummer Kenny Pierce. A few years later, added guitarist Rick Berry who was also childhood friends with Kent and Ethan. In 1990, just before heading to Japan, TAZ would bring in the final addition to the band, Florida native drummer Joey Carallo. Throughout their career, TAZ played at every well-known venue throughout Orange County, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and even Phoenix, but called Hollywood, CA, their home. TAZ soon became one of Southern California's top-drawing original Hard Rock bands, headlining most every night. The band quickly made a name for themselves with their high-energy live performances and catchy songwriting skills, combining pop, funk, alternative, metal, and glam. TAZ had also become regulars in well-known publications such as BAM, Hollywood Rocks, Rock City News, Screamer, Japan's BURRN!, RIP, Metal Edge, Metal Forces, and so many more. TAZ was a big draw, and fans were lining up. TAZ had formed one of the hottest bands to hit the scene in years.
