Speedway Blvd were a New York based act assembled by famed bubblegum impresarios Kasenetz and Katz. Looking to...

After the success of their debut album in 1989, John and Dino Elefante released this “Lofcaudio” (1990), their second album with MASTEDON, on their own label. Now fully remastered and pressed on gold CD, “Lofcaudio [Gold Disc Remastered reissue]” also features an all-star cast, but most of them aren’t named because of legal issues with other record labels. “Lofcaudio” has four vocalists namely John Elefante, Dave Amato, Tom Bowes and James Dean Longacre, with the Amato and the great Michael Thompson on guitar, all of which are fitting the slick and polished AOR sound of this album perfectly.
Massive, full-scale AOR with lovely melodies, harmonies and layered sound straight out of the Kansas songbook.
Without a doubt one of the finest 1990 releases finally available again with a wonderful remastering.

These were requested several times in some post comments: HELIX ’80s most relevant albums ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records. One of the hardest working acts in Rock multi-hued history, Canadian five-piece Helix pretty much spent their major label years out on the road, showing that the tour-album-tour routine could indeed be made to work. After a couple of...
Guitar-driven songs, propelled by a shared conviction and a true love of music, is only one way to describe the latest album from metal soldiers RIOT / Mark Reale. Titled “Rock World ; Rare & Unreleased 87-95” here we have archive cuts from 1987-1995, a very interesting period for the band, hard rocking.
Freshly remastered, these are finished / properly recorded songs never used, alternate versions, and recordings of known songs but featuring featuring vocalist Tony Moore, so the audio quality is excellent (not demos)
As requested, here’s the recent remastered reissue of HOLY SOLDIER‘s debut album “Holy Soldier +2″ freshly remastered, including two additional bonus tracks found only on this CD version, limited to 500 copies. “Holy Soldier” is one of the finest pieces of late 80s / early 90s American hard rock, edgy and riff driven but also melodic n’ catchy. Highly Recommended...
And here’s the other requested remastered reissue from HOLY SOLDIER; their second album “Last Train“. One of CCM rock most influential acts of the late Eighties and early Nineties – in terms of quality on par with Stryper – ‘Last Train’ shows a band at the peak of their prowess. All the years of slugging it out in the L.A....
‘The Early Years 79-81’ 5-disc boxset represents DEF LEPPARD’s first two albums, ‘On Through The Night’ (1980) and ‘High ‘N’ Dry’ (1981), and with 3 extra discs including previously unreleased material, it’s the definitive collection of the band’s early music.
The release has been prepared in conjunction with singer Joe Elliott, while the remastering has been done by the band’s long serving sound engineer Ronan McHugh.
This Japanese box with all 5 discs pressed on SHM-CD sounds fabulous.

This remastered reissue of USA melodic hard rockers DIZZY LANE packs every song the band ever laid to tape, including their first EP ‘It Ain’t Easy’ and full length album ‘Cheap Thrills’, plus two unreleased tracks. While both albums sold very well despite of being indie released (Dizzy Lane were signed by Mercury / Polygram but the deal dropped) over...
It took some time, but this request from several months ago it’s finally here in exclusive at 0dayrox: JEFF LORBER‘s mid-80s album “Step By Step” as part of the stupendous “AOR CITY 1000 series” remastered reissue campaign by Sony Music Japan.
The CD sound quality is excellent, and includes four bonus tracks for all Eighties maniacs rejoice.

This limited edition CD of 500 copies issued by Aussie Rock Archives has the ROSE TATTOO original ‘Scarred For Life‘ 1980 recording rejected by their record label, claiming that was not commercial enough and specially for the ‘too gross lyrics’.
The band put aside this recording that only survived until today on a few cassette tapes, and from this album only a few ideas were used for the band’s 1981 album Assault And Battery.
Not to be confused; in 1982 Rose Tattoo used the title ‘Scarred For Life’ for their third album but from this 1980 recording the only thing in common is just the title.
There’s a copy of the tape circulating for years traded among fans, but this is the actual CD release cleaned & ‘remastered’ to get the best possible audio quality.
AOR Heaven Records has just remastered “V“ (Five), probably the best album of Norwegian melodic rockers RETURN, featured here in exclusive at 0dayrox.
The record sounds way ‘more international’ than Return’s first four efforts, as it successfully combines the typical American stadium rock sound with a little bit of British hard in the vein of Whitesnake, and the band’s signature Scandinavian AOR style.
Produced by expert Ole Evenrude and including backing vocals by Jorn Lande, this is a must listen for all Melodic Rock / AOR fans.
Strictly limited to 1000 copies.
