DAVID LEE ROTH – Sonrisa Salvaje [Friday Music remastered reissue]

Did you know there’s a Spanish version of DAVID LEE ROTH’s Eat ’Em And Smile album done back in in 1986? Or you didn’t know it existed at all? Don’t worry. Most people don’t know about it. But the album originally intended for Spaniard-speaking listeners titled “Sonrisa Salvaje” is available again on CD, and this time, it’s the remastered version done by Friday Music reissued on CD for the first time.
The Spanish-language album featured all the backing tracks used for Eat ’Em and Smile — laid down by Dave’s band at the time, which included Billy Sheehan on bass and Steve Vai on guitar — but with Spanish translations of English lyrics.
And very ‘bad’, hilarious translations by the way. In fact, if you know some Spanish language, this is terrible. But a lot of fun! And if you do not understand a word of Spanish, it’s darn fun too.

DAVID LEE ROTH – A Little Ain’t Enough (Friday Music Remastered) HQ

Many of you asked for the very hard to find and only remastered version of “A Little Ain’t Enough“, the third full-length studio album by DAVID LEE ROTH released by Friday Music Records.
This underrated, very good album it’s plenty of catchy songs, fun lyrics, party attitude, wild guitar solos and big production.
David Lee Roth’s third solo album “A Little Ain’t Enough” marks something of a turning point in Diamond Dave’s career, and in some ways, represents the end of an era: ’80s glammy hard rock / hair metal.
After the previous album world tour, Steve Vai left Dave’s band (bassist Billy Sheehan had left prior to the tour to form Mr. Big) and Roth had to rebuild the whole thing.
Not an easy task, but he got a stellar fresh line-up with Gregg Bissonette (drums), Matt Bissonette (bass), Brett Tuggle (keyboards) and a young – only 21 years-old – virtuoso guitarist named Jason Becker…

DAVID LEE ROTH – Eat ‘Em And Smile [Japan ‘Warner Hard Rock 1500’ Limited Series] *0dayrox Exclusive*

After asking some collectors friends we finally got (thanks Eno), as requested, the rare, hard to find Limited Edition of DAVID LEE ROTH‘s ”Eat ‘Em And Smile” released as part of the ‘Warner Hard Rock 1500‘ Japanese reissue series from some years ago, named after the tag price of ¥1,500.
It’s pretty difficult to find such 30 minutes of ’80s hair metal perfection like on ”Eat ‘Em And Smile”, more than enough to show that Roth could indeed go toe-to-toe with his former VH partners. Time has revealed that the secret weapon wasn’t his three-headed monster of a band, but instead, a well-written and arranged set of songs.
Indeed, David Lee Roth’s full length debut ”Eat ‘Em and Smile” set a standard for the genre in the mid-Eighties.
Oddly enough, ”Eat ‘Em and Smile” never got a remastering treatment. But wait to hear this ‘Warner Hard Rock 1500’ Japan press: it sounds fabulous, million times better than any previous CD release…

DAVID LEE ROTH – Skyscraper [Japan ‘Warner Hard Rock 1500’ Limited Series] *0dayrox Exclusive*

As requested, here’s the rare, hard to find Limited Edition of DAVID LEE ROTH‘s ”Skyscraper” released as part of the ‘Warner Hard Rock 1500‘ Japanese reissue series from some years ago, named after the tag price of ¥1,500.
I know many will call me nuts – but in my humble opinion, ”Skyscraper” is a masterpiece. A hair metal masterpiece, a pop-rock masterpiece, mainstream rock progressive masterpiece. All of that. ”Skyscraper” is progressive, yes, considering what second half of the ’80s industry rock was.
Having Steve Vai at his prime with green light to create, ”Skyscraper” was innovative from every corner regarding this genre – and at the same time met all major label requirements to be commercial, catchy, and darn fun.
“Skyscraper” never got a remastering treatment – there’s a vinyl version ‘remastered’, but that’s in terms to get a proper modern LP output – not ‘tweaked’ as the modern remastering we all know. But wait to hear this ‘Warner Hard Rock 1500’ Japan press: it sounds fabulous, million times better than any previous CD release…

VAN HALEN – 1984 [Japan edition remastered – Forever Young series] Out Of Print

The recent VAN HALEN posts were intended to the Hagar-era only, but I couldn’t resist to feature here as well “1984“, from the same Warner Brothers Japan ‘Forever Young‘ remastered series.

DAVID LEE ROTH – Your Filthy Little Mouth [Friday Music remaster] (2016)

This Friday Music remastered 2016 re-release of DAVID LEE ROTH‘s “Your Filthy Little Mouth” provides a great opportunity to re-discover this highly underrated album. Dave’s 4th solo album definitely surprised to all. It certainly wasn’t aimed at receiving mainstream attention because it was immensely different from the grunge emerging from Seattle around the time of its release (1994). However, it...
