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…
