On the turntable this Sunday...High 'n' Dry

High 'n' Dry is the second studio album by the English rock band Def Leppard, released on July 11, 1981. High 'n' Dry was Pete Willis' last full-time album with Def Leppard. It charted at No. 38 on the Billboard 200 and No. 26 on the UK Albums Chart.  "High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)", ranked No. 33 on VH1's 40 Greatest Metal Songs.  Following the success of Pyromania, the album re-entered in the US chart and reached No. 72 in 1983.
High 'n' Dry was reissued on 31 May 1984 with two bonus tracks:
  • "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" (Remix), essentially the same recording with a few synthesiser overdubs. The remix was released in 1984 as a single, peaking at No. 61 in the US charts.
  • "Me & My Wine" (Remix), a remixed version of a 1981 B-side.
Videos for both were made, featuring Phil Collen (who was not in the band at the time of the album's recording). Both bonus tracks were omitted from the mid-1990s re-releases of the album, but returned when Def Leppard and Mercury came to terms in 2018 and the album was put on digital streaming and downloading platforms.
