LAROXX – Laroxx [Previously Unreleased / Remastered from the original tapes]
Released by SteelHeart Memories Records (the same of the Lost UK / US Jewel series) for the very first time on CD, here’s the cool request of Glam Hard Rockers LAROXX self-titled debut album, originally out only on cassette in 1992, however half of the tracks here are previously unreleased.
While LaRoxx born in Italy, the album was originally recorded for a release in the USA and Japan thru a major label, and a promotional tour in the States (prior of the announced release) was set up, with gigs played at famous “Troubador”, “Foundation Forum” and “F.M. Station” in L.A.
Unfortunately things went bad, as the label supposed to release the album suddenly dropped the offer, so the band found itself with a professionally recorded (and expensive!) album in its hands without a label ready to release it.
With the rock music climate about to change, the recording was shelved… but now we can enjoy LaRoxx catchy songs close in sound to American bands like Poison, Warrant and Motley Crue.
Very well composed, produced and recorded ‘Laroxx’ is more than a nice find from the dusted shelves, now remastered to finally enjoy the full album from this good, unknown band that deserved better luck. Not easy to find CD.
