MADAM X – We Reserve The Right [Lost Gems Records remastered reissue]

As requested, here’s the rare Aussie remastered CD reissue of MADAM X culet classic 1984 LP “We Reserve The Right”. Formed by sisters Maxine and Roxy Petrucci (later in VIXEN) among its several members there was a young future Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach.
With the US metal explosion in 1983, Jet Records signed MADAM X for the release of their debut LP next year, produced by Rick Derringer and engineered by legend George Tutko.
The aim was to present a half women / half men glam metal band with the typical anthemic sound from the era, something like QUIET RIOT meets TWISTED SISTER. The cover art for “We Reserve The Right” looks funny now, but back in 1984 it made an impact…

BABYLON A.D. – Babylon A.D. +7 [Bad Reputation Remaster] (2020)

Originally released in 1989 BABYLON A.D. self-titled debut album containing the hard rock hits “Bang Go The Bells”, “Hammer Swings Down” and “The Kid Goes Wild” – also featured in the film RoboCop 2 – has been remastered / reissued by Bad Reputation Records. “Babylon A.D. +7 [Bad Reputation Remaster]” also includes as bonus tracks several remixed of these hits previously unreleased on CD.
With songs plenty of smokin’ guitar riffs and hard driving rhythms, this album is a must have for fans of the classic hair metal era – in the same vein of Tora Tora, Ratt, Black N’ Blue, etc. Originally known as The Persuaders, Bay Area outfit Babylon A.D. also had to add the A.D. suffix to their moniker after complaints from another group in Chicago with the same name.
Very good remastering job and the bonus tracks roxx!

MARTIN SWEET (Crashdïet) – Digesting Decades (2021)

Crashdïet guitar player for almost two decades now, MARTIN SWEET is releasing his first solo album “Digesting Decades“, where he indeed pay tribute to his favorite songs / bands from the last 50 years.
SWEET sings very well and perform all instruments (except drums) on varied classic tunes from ‘The Look’ (Roxette cover), Ask the Lonely (Journey) or Black Forever (WASP cover) to Another Day in Paradise (Phil Collins) and ‘Wouldn’t You Like to Know Me’ (Paul Stanley).
It’s a really fun project which started as some standalone singles during the pandemic and ended being a full length LP released today.
Really, really cool.

J.T. LOUX (produced by Frank Hannon) – Taken By Moonlight (2021)

Tired of hearing about Greta Van Fleet, The Struts, and Rival Sons as the chief runners in the rock revivalist category? Well, 20-year-old J.T. LOUX with his thick bleeding guitar tones and fervently emotive vocals deserves a roster spot on the return to classic rock savior list.
The guitar-centric singer/songwriter Loux, released his new LP ”Taken by Moonlight” this spring, teamed up with producer Frank Hannon of Tesla. This boisterous album contains eight brand new songs that the band has written and recorded throughout this past year.
J.T. and his skilled band (a trio) delivers a mix of classic rock, heavy blues, passionate funky soul, etc here, but they excels when they rock hard as on ‘Sick & Twisted’…

RICK SPRINGFIELD – Orchestrating My Life Live (2021)

2019 Orchestrating My Life was a career-defining re-visitation album of a lifetime of hits from Australian-born rocker RICK SPRINGFIELD. The disc featured all the hits you know re-recorded with a mix of rock and orchestral arrangements.
The album was premiered live to a sold out crowd at LA’s Saban Theatre on March 30th 2019. Rick was accompanied on stage by his own high-energy band and the award-winning 100-piece Santa Monica High School Orchestra. Now that show is being released titled “Orchestrating My Life Live“.
Taking a look at the cover art and knowing there would be an orchestra in the recording, honestly we were expecting a boring album… well, since we press play we heard one of the most electrifying Springfield performances ever.
Really, the orchestra arrangements are almost used as a background thing only, what we have here is Rick and his band rocking like Hell! Seriously, these are the ‘heavier’ versions of ‘Celebrate Youth’, ‘Human Touch’ or ‘Jessie’s Girl’ we ever heard.
Don’t be fooled by “Orchestrating My Life Live” title, artwork of for being a live record, this baby rocks!
Highly Recommended

MAMMOTH WVH (Wolfgang Van Halen) – Mammoth WVH (2021)

Mammoth WVH” is the debut album from Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen, and he successfully lives up to his family name while carving out a separate identity and sound on his first CD.
This is quite a narrow needle to thread, at an undeniably difficult time for the younger Van Halen, whose guitar-hero father Eddie died in October 2020.
In addition to his personal grief, the reverence and protective bubble surrounding the elder Van Halen’s legacy was at a fever pitch. Some online critics even accused Wolfgang of capitalizing on his dad’s death with the tribute-paying debut single “Distance.”
But one listen to Mammoth WVH makes it clear he isn’t trying to hop on the Van Halen nostalgia train…

ONE DESIRE – One Night Only ; Live in Helsinki (2021)

Frontiers Music is releasing the first live album and video from Finland’s AOR / Melodic Rock wonders ONE DESIRE, “One Night Only – Live In Helsinki“, on June 11, 2021. Back in March 2020, One Desire had hit the road with The Night Flight Orchestra in Europe in support of their then forthcoming second album, “Midnight Empire”.
Of course, anyone who sees ‘March 2020’ knows that the coronavirus pandemic was strengthening its grip on the globe at that moment in time. The tour was cut short and venues around the globe were being shut down. One Desire still had a yearning to show fans how these new songs sounded live.
As they, and the rest of the world, adjusted to a new reality in terms of live performances, the idea of a special one-of-a-kind live product came to pass and a live recording was captured on October 3, 2020 in Helsinki, Finland at the On The Rocks Club.
With just a minimal audience, as required for live events these days, the band kicked out a selection of their most beloved and acclaimed songs…

DENNIS DeYOUNG – 26 East Volume 2 (2021)

Former Styx frontman DENNIS DeYOUNG is back with the second volume of his fond farewell to recorded music, “26 East, Vol. 2” As with the preceding volume, “26 East, Vol. 2” once again hints strongly at DeYoung’s rock roots with Styx.
The production and musicianship are epic, and those timeless vocal arrangements get delivered in spades. A fitting goodbye and a final signature on an outstanding body of work which will stand the test of time.
DeYoung has previously stated that “26 East” will mark his retirement from the world of recorded music. Thanks to the abundance of material, Dennis agreed to split the album in two parts. This second half starts where the previous one left off and sees DeYoung collaborate again with the awesome Jim Peterik, a fellow Chicagoan and nearby neighbor, for the songwriting on select tracks.
Peterik also play guitar, bass, does backing vocals, and there’s many others musicians collaborating here…

JOE BONAMASSA – Now Serving Royal Tea Live From The Ryman (2021)

A notable release for many different reasons, JOE BONAMASSA’s latest offering, ”Now Serving: Royal Tea Live From The Ryman”, is set for release June 11th via Provogue / Mascot Label Group. The Ryman Auditorium occupies a special place in music history. A former home of the Grand Ole Opry, where Elvis Presley once walked the stage, the historic, hundred-year-old building has stolen the metaphorical hearts of artists thanks to its unique atmosphere and unrivalled acoustics.
For Bonamassa’s concert, recorded during the pandemic, the Ryman was populated with life-size cardboard cut-outs of fans, and broadcast across the globe. You can hear the rich, layered magic of classic Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix here, married to the easy musical invention of The Beatles and the sheer power of Led Zeppelin. Bonamassa’s guitar sings and sweeps, as mercurial as ever…

CHEAP TRICK – In Color [re-recorded 1997 / the Unreleased Steve Albini sessions] *0dayrox Exclusive*

To complete the CHEAP TRICK series featured here, now we have a rarity: ”In Color re-recorded 1997 / the Unreleased Steve Albini sessions”. At the second half of the ’90s CHEAP TRICK was working on a project with producer Steve Albini, and in-between Zander & Co. decided to re-record the band’s 2nd album ‘In Color’. They were happy with Tom Werman’s original production – which discovered CHEAP TRICK’s power pop side – but disliked the mix.
So with Albini behind the desk, CHEAP TRICK re-cut all the original ‘In Color’ 10-track songs, with a rawer approach and almost recorded live into the studio, with a few overdubs. The band also taped 5 extra songs at these sessions (also included into this file).
This recording never was officially released but found its way into the hands of some collectors via a cassette-dubbed master-sourced CD leaked by an ex-employee of the band.
We have compared several copies floating around, but none sounds as good as this one owned by one of 0dayrox‘s staff member.
