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…
