ELLIOT EASTON – Change No Change +5 [Wounded Bird remastered reissue] (2021)

Wounded Bird Records has reissued / remastered two solo albums from The Cars members, the already featured here and must have Benjamin Orr’s ‘The Lace’, and this, guitarist ELLIOT EASTON long out of print 1985 solo LP ”Change No Change”. This release includes several bonus tracks taken from Easton’s unreleased second album ‘Band Of Angels’.
Co-written with talented Jules Shear who also provide baking vocals, ”Change No Change” was a pretty modern album for 1985, with some Cars elements and that classic rock&pop style but a wider exploration of sounds and rhythms…

BLACK SPIDERS – Black Spiders (2021)

Back in June of 2017, Sheffield rock beasts BLACK SPIDERS waved goodbye to an army of loyal fans with some sonically charged shows before retreating into the shadows. And then, in November of last year, with the world in the grips of the Coronavirus pandemic and after a long year of very little fun from out of the silhouettes they returned with the single ‘Fly In The Soup’, the first new Black Spiders music in 6 years. Exactly the feel-good shot in the arm the world needed, while we await that other vaccine.
Now we have the full length album, self titled “Black Spiders“, where they are rocking as hard as ever. The self proclaimed ‘dark lords of modern classic rock’ are back, and deliver a set of fun, entertaining rock n’ rollers…

CHEAP TRICK – Busted +7 [Japan BluSpec CD2 remastered miniLP] (2017)

CHEAP TRICK have made an historic chart debut with their acclaimed new album, ‘In Another World’. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers’ 20th studio album enters at #1 on Billboard’s “Rock” chart — their highest first-week chart placement in the veteran band’s long, remarkable career.
Many of you asked for some of their other records, and we have the terrific Japanese BluSpec CD2 remastered versions with loads of bonus tracks.
Here’s one of our favorites from the band; “Busted“, and you know how an album released in 1990 sounds alike, even more if there’s master producer Richie Zito (fresh from producing Bad English) behind the desk.

ERIC MARTIN – Eric Martin [Japan remastered SHM-CD] Out of Print

Eric Martin” is the self-titled debut by gifted vocalist ERIC MARTIN (Mr. Big), for many years hard to find and reissued by Universal Music Japan in their remastered SHM-CD 2016 reissue series. Unfortunately it’s out of print again.
Eric Martin, the man with the eternal babyface, achieved world-wide fame as Mr. Big frontman at the end of the ’80s, but the vocalist had a strong career before that. After playing with several bands in his native Long Island, NY, his moment arrived when his Eric Martin Band signed a deal with Journey management and Elektra/Asylum, who released their debut album ‘Sucker For A Pretty Face’ , also featured at 0dayrox.
“Eric Martin” is a treasure from the ’80s that no Melodic Rock / AOR enthusiast should be without. You have Steve Lukather, Randy Jackson, etc playing here, make no mistake. This Japanese SHM-CD sounds punchy & bright, and really worth hunt down at least for an used copy.

ERIC MARTIN BAND – Sucker For A Pretty Face [Rock Candy remastered +5]

The first, major label solo debut of Mr. Big’s terrific vocalist Eric Martin has just been ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records, featuring 5 bonus tracks. In fact, this “Sucker For A Pretty Face” was the debut of his ERIC MARTIN BAND, originally named ‘415’.
Although the name Eric Martin is synonymous with the platinum selling melodic hard band rock band Mr. Big, there was a time when he was just another struggling singer, one of many trying to get a shot at the big time.
Eric’s calling card was, and still is, a one in a million voice; a golden rasp blessed with a silky smooth delivery that would eventually establish him as a contender for serious chart action.
A must for ’80s US Melodic Rock fans, Eric Martin Band’s “Sucker For A Pretty Face” is plenty of hooky rockers highlighting Eric’s awesome vocals.
The sound quality of this Rock Candy remaster is pretty impressive, featuring 5 bonus tracks including the studio track ‘Stop in the Name of Love’ plus 4 tracks recorded live at the ’83 Hawaii gig, also with a really good sound.

ERIC MARTIN – I’m Only Fooling Myself [Rock Candy remaster]

Here’s another request – and I scratch my head thinking why this great album wasn’t featured here before… ERIC MARTIN‘s second solo album “I’m Only Fooling Myself” recorded before he joined MR. BIG. This is terrific ’80s AOR album including the ‘who’s who’ from the L.A. session musician scene. And this is the first time appeared on CD, remastered by Rock Candy Records specialists.
While production is top notch, I always found the original release a bit flat in terms of sound. This Rock Candy remaster revitalized all levels and brightness. There’s a world of difference between this pristine remaster and the slightly flat sounding original LP / cassette release.
Truly one of the greatest ‘solo artist’ AOR albums of the second half of the ’80s from unquestionably one of the world’s most revered Rock vocalists.

JAKOB MAGNUSSON – Jack Magnet [Japan 2-CD Special Edition remastered] (2021) *0dayrox EXCLUSIVE*

As well as being widely regarded as Iceland’s foremost musical icon, JAKOB MAGNUSSON is is arguably one of the most renowned Fender Rhodes players in the world. He studied Music in the USA and soon was part of several fusion bands where he performed with the big names of the genre.
For this, his third solo album ”Jack Magnet” (Jacob’s nickname at the time) the focus was completely different; rock&pop / Westcoast AOR song-format with FM radio appeal. For this matter, the cream of the L.A Session helped him to create that unique smooth WC AOR atmospheres; Jeff Porcaro, Vinnie Colaiuta, Neil Stubenhaus, Stanley Clarke, Bill Champlin, etc, with songwriting contributions from the likes of Jay Graydon, Richard Page and Steve George.
Yes, TOTO fans of their more ‘elaborated’ stuff will love ”Jack Magnet”. We always loved the artwork too, that kind of English art design group Hipgnosis works, whom created such iconic album covers.
This is the just released, stupendous Japanese Special Edition fully remastered, including as bonus disc Magnusson’s following LP featuring master Michael Landau on all guitars, impossible to find for decades.

This project by Bulgarian guitarist JORDAN JORDANOV started several years ago and since the beginning GORAN EDMAN agreed participate, singing on all tracks. There’s many musicians involved, and a lyricist from America, so expect quality material.
The overall sound & style here is acoustic guitar driven rock with pianos and synths, plus electric guitar. While the mood is in a midtempo pace, there’s moments for uptempo electricity.
However our favorite moments are when there’s an acoustic environment – with elaborated layers of sounds – giving room for Edman’s vocals to shine. We rarely have the chance to hear this talented singer perform this type of songs, and you’ll love it. A man with an outstanding, melodic and pristine set of pipes…

CHEAP TRICK – Lap Of Luxury +8 [Japan BluSpec CD2 remastered miniLP] (2017)

With the very good new CHEAP TRICK album – a band which never fails in delivering quality material, many of you asked for some of their other records. 1988’s “Lap Of Luxury” was some kind of a ‘comeback’ album for CHEAP TRICK, and what a way to do it: the LP was a smash hit and scored three Top-40 singles, one of them, ‘The Flame’, #1.

JOHN FARNHAM – Break The Ice [1987 unreleased album +2] *0dayrox EXCLUSIVE*

As requested here we have a rarity; “Break The Ice“, the JOHN FARNHAM album that never was… After Farnham success with his solo LP Whispering Jack his record company wanted to capitalize the moment and release this LP with songs he recorded back in 1984.
“Break The Ice” was meant to have the catalogue number INT 147.730 on Curb Records, however, for unknown reasons, this album was never manufactured or released. This is a German LP Test-pressing for this album.
These songs were subsequently used on a number of movie soundtracks like ‘Voyage Of The Rock Aliens (1984)’, ‘The Slugger’s Wife (1985)’, Fletch (1985) and RAD (1986), all cult pieces from the ’80s, and as the LP “Break The Ice” never materialized, were effectively “lost” in time.
Song quality is excellent, and the material, a must have for ’80s AOR / movie soundtrack fanatics. As 0dayrox extras, we added a couple of rare tracks / versions from the RAD movie performed by Farnham.

MIRKO HIRSCH – Love is Blind ; Songs from the Motion Picture Pretty Boy +1 (2021)

Regarded as one of the best current exponents in creating retro Eighties music German musician, singer, songwriter MIRKO HIRSCH has just recorded “Love is Blind ; Songs from the Motion Picture Pretty Boy“, the soundtrack to the forthcoming film ‘Pretty Boy’, a love letter to ’80s slasher movies.
This isn’t a score but all song-format tunes with vocals which bring to mind classic soundtracks like ‘The Lost Boys’, ‘Manhunter’, ‘Fright Night’, etc. Title track “Love is Blind” is meant to be a tribute to a typical power ballad from the mid-80s, it will ‘take your breath away’ 😉
With a production & mix that indeed put us into a time machine, “Love is Blind ; Songs from the Motion Picture Pretty Boy” is indeed a trip back to that naive era, and a lot of fun…

ZODIAC MINDWARP AND THE LOVE REACTION – Tattooed Beat Messiah +9 [Rock Candy Remastered]

As requested here we have the now out of print, ‘remastered & reloaded‘ reissue by Rock Candy Records of ZODIAC MINDWARP AND THE LOVE REACTION 1988’s album “Tattooed Beat Messiah“, including no less than 9 bonus tracks, b-sides taken from the various singles the band released back in the day, for the first time on CD. This was one of the few RC releases housed into a cardboard slipcase.
At the time, Motley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses and Bon Jovi were ruling the American rock, whilst the UK was struttin’ its stuff with The Cult, Rogue Male and… Zodiac Mindwarp!
The brainchild of Mark Manning, former music mag designer and professional raconteur, Zodiac Mindwarp And The Love Reaction (to give the project its full unexpurgated title) was brought into being with a single aim in mind, to live the sex, drugs & rock’n’roll dream like there was no tomorrow.
Choc full of kick ass riffs, sleazy grooves and swagger the album received critical acclaim in 1988…

JOHN FARNHAM – Whispering Jack +1 [Australian Gold Series remastered 2017]

As requested here we have JOHN FARNHAM‘s most famous album ”Whispering Jack” in its 2017 Australian remastered CD reissue.
Including the #1 hit single “You’re the Voice” which still remains a staple of classic radio, the album is a gem of mainstream AC / AOR from the ’80s, with an incredible pristine slick production sound. On a couple of tracks, Farnham moves into more of a straight melodic rock territory in “Love to Shine,” and “Let Me Out”, showcasing the electric guitar skills of future NELSON guitarist Brett Garsed…

ZIGGURAT – Melodic Scandal [The Complete Ziggurat] Retrospect Records Digitally Remastered

This is a really cool request, the now out of print (more than $900 for a used copy, go figure) remastered 2-in-1 CD of melodic pompsters ZIGGURAT, titled “Melodic Scandal [The Complete Ziggurat]” including their two LP’s, ”Ziggurat” and ”Melodic Scandal”.
This quintet, whose name was derived from a type of ancient Eastern structure, hailed from Atlanta and formed in the mid 70’s. Their self-titled debut has a definitive keyboard driven Pomp AOR sound yet adding some melodic bluesy touches, while ”Melodic Scandal” turns much more melodic indeed, with that polished commercial AOR style typical of the year of its release (1982).
Great stuff, rare CD…
