"Lita Ford is ripping open the vault and sharing music no one has heard yet. Ford, a Grammy-nominated artist who recently accepted Guitar Player's Lifetime Achievement Award and is one of the youngest living legends in rock 'n' roll, is celebrating four decades of music. She is releasing Living Like a Runaway: Lita Ford, A Memoir, documenting her journey from all-girl band The Runaways to major solo successes. Ford is also offering an audio complement in the form of Time Capsule.

This throwback record boasts identifiable voices and brilliant players jamming without any planning or pressure. Some of the album's highlights: Billy Sheehan playing bass and Rodger Carter on drums; Dave Navarro playing a mandolin; Jeff Scott Soto singing a duet with Ford; Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander of Cheap Trick actually singing backing vocals; and KISS' Gene Simmons ripping the bass.

The album is a time capsule of the fertile and whisky-soaked pre-grunge period that so many rock fans have continued affection for. Time Capsule is Ford's gift to fans who love the '80s, when thrilling vocal performances, raunchy riffs, and loud, growling guitars were as essential as oxygen.

In these lost recordings, you hear what happens when insanely talented musicians get drunk, hang out, end up in a room together with a Screw it, let's play mentality, minus the click tracks or label execs breathing down their necks, looking for the single or the hook.

There was a shitload of these 24-track analog tapes in the closet in my house Ford recalls. This is some of the best work I've ever done and it was sitting there. I grabbed two suitcases and took them back to the United States."
