CHERIE (Sweden) – Cherie [unreleased] *EXCLUSIVE*

As requested, here’s the rare, mysterious album never released by Swedes CHERIE. The album is professionally recorded apparently between 1989-1990 but never released, and details of the band / line up remain unknown.
What it isn’t mysterious is the type of music on offer here; quality Scandinavian melodic rock / AOR with the classy sound form the era ranging from Europe circa 1988 (Out Of This World album) to Talk Of The Town self-titled debut from the same year.
A ‘lost’ little gem from the golden period.

TOMMY BOLIN – Shake The Devil : The Lost Sessions (2021)

This 2021 we reach the 45th anniversary of the passing of TOMMY BOLIN, the supremely talented guitarist and songwriter, best known for his work with Deep Purple and The James Gang, who captivated the world with his sophisticated and ferocious playing. Bolin’s tragic death, when he was a mere 25 years old, has been one of rock music’s great “what ifs,” forcing critics and fans to grapple with what Bolin might have been able to accomplish in subsequent years were he still alive, given that he managed to produce such amazing works of mature artistry at such a young age.
Now Cleopatra Records / Purple Pyramid are releasing a collection of lost tracks by Tommy Bolin titled “Shake The Devil: The Lost Sessions“, featuring demos, alternate mixes, and outtakes, music from the ‘Private Eyes’ album sessions.
A must listen for fans of this gifted musician.

MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP – Assault Attack demos w/ Cozy Powell / Non album tracks

Despite Cozy Powell left the MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP prior to the recording of their 3rd album “Assault Attack”, the drummer actually started to work with Michael on the early demos. Here’s all these recordings, “Assault Attack demos” including songs that ended into the album, but also 4 unreleased tracks.
Numbers like ‘Desert Song’ or ‘Rock You To The Ground’ feature some different arrangements and of course, Schenker flies on the fretboard – he never play the same solo and each has something new and amazing.
It’s great to hear 4 songs never released, not just ideas, these are complete compositions, and all with very good sound quality, taken from a cassette belonged to Cozy Powell.
There has been many bootlegs of these recordings, however I bet you this 0dayrox version is the better.
A must for MSG / Schenker (and Cozy) fans.

JIM PETERIK hasn’t been quiet during this lockdown: he wrote & recorded two new songs, “Comeback Story / The Best In Us” performed in a duet with powerhouse vocalist Cathy Richardson (Starship).
But Jimbo also did a streaming live show presenting bot new cuts plus some amazing acoustic / electric versions of some of his best songs.
There’s a great take of timeless classics such as ‘Eye Of The Tiger’, ‘Burning Heart’, ‘Caught Up In You’ (the song he wrote for 38 Special) but also surprising arrangements on ‘Heavy Metal’ (co-penned with Sammy Hagar for the movie of the same title), his classic ‘Vehicle’ into an amazing blues version where Cathy Richardson shine on vocals, and the rare, very early Ides Of March’s ‘L.A. Goodbye’.

BIG COUNTRY – Out Beyond The River [Compulsion Years Anthology, Cherry Red 5-CD Remastered Boxset] (2020)

As requested, here we have the Cherry Red Records limited box-set ”Out Beyond The River: The Complete Compulsion Recordings”, a newly remastered set featuring the original classic line-up of Scottish rockers BIG COUNTRY, fronted by the late Stuart Adamson.
This set celebrates the recordings of the band made between 1993 and 1994 for Chrysalis Records imprint Compulsion.
Featuring 71 tracks on 5 discs, including the albums ”The Buffalo Skinners” (featuring the great Simon Phillips on drums), the double live album ”Without The Aid Of A Safety Net’ recorded at Barrowlands Ballroom in Glasgow on 29 December 1993, a disc of rare B-sides / bonus tracks, US radio mixes & previously unreleased song, plus a CD with the original demo for every track on The Buffalo Skinners album…

FIGHTER – The Waiting + unreleased 4-Song EP [Digitally Remastered] *EXCLUSIVE*

As requested, here’s the recent remastered reissue of one of the best female-fronted AOR / melodic hard rock albums from the early ’90s: FIGHTER‘s “The Waiting“, including as bonus tracks their very early 4-track demo EP with two exclusive songs.
Led by talented vocalist and principal songwriter Amy Wolter (we featured her solo album at 0dayrox some time ago) FIGHTER played arena style melodic hard rock plenty of hooks and melodies galore.
The distinctive element in FIGHTER’s style was the trade-off vocals between Wolter and male singer and drummer Sean Murphy. Dual vocals proved to work great for them and provided dynamics not seen in other bands of this ilk.
Not a single weak song on here, but a wonderful collection of superb tunes wrapped by a crystal clear production, now even more enhanced by a vibrant remastering job.
A MUST for female-fronted AOR / melodic hard rock fans.

MESHEEN – A Matter Of Time [1994 / Previously Unreleased] (2021)

Alongside the lost recordings from FORTRESS, Cult Metal Classics/ Sonic Age Records is releasing today the album from other band of singer Ted Heath, MESHEEN, titled “A Matter Of Time“.
Recorded in 1994, “A Matter Of Time” is American melodic hard rock with the early ’90s sound of the genre. There were record labels interested, but this kind of rock music resulted hard to sell at the time and the album was shelved.
MESHEEN released by themselves some homemade CDr’s later, with only a few collectors having it in their possession.
Now “A Matter Of Time” has been remastered and properly released with fresh artwork.
Think a mix of DOKKEN, KEEL, LION, early STRYPER, strong guitar-driven songs plenty of groove with a touch of progressive here and there, professionally recorded & mixed.

RADAR – Lost In The Atlantic [1986 Previously Unreleased] (2021) *EXCLUSIVE*

Shelved for almost four decades, Escape Music will release next month one of the best British secret; RADAR unreleased album ”Lost In The Atlantic”, for the first time on CD in a limited edition to 1000 copies only.
RADAR was formed in 1981 when David West (Go West / Robert Hart / Wild Blue), Rod Jordan & Gary Stevenson (Go West / Robert Hart / Wild Blue / Snakecharmer) met at the ABC Music Store in Surrey England, where David & Gary were working as guitar & keyboard demonstrators.
In 1983 Radar was signed to Warner Bros Publishing UK and their journey began.
RADAR began recording their album at the famous ‘Trident Studios’ on Wardour Street, London early 1985. But at the time Gary was very busy as producer for other artists. The band was happy to hold back the release of the RADAR album and use the success of Gary’s production works with various bands to promote an upcoming release.
However this had a negative effect on RADAR the momentum was lost and “Lost In The Atlantic” was never released.
This is primo mid-80s lite AOR with melodic arrangements and pristine production sound.

GTR – Nerotrend [2nd Unreleased album / first generation tape] *EXCLUSIVE*

Few days ago we featured the reissue of a Nightwing album featuring talented British lead vocalist Max Bacon. Bacon was later part of super-group GTR founded by Steve Hackett & Steve Howe, and their only official album.
However, there was a second album in the making, “Nerotrend“, that never materialized. Bacon sung some of the songs, the others were performed by the exquisite Robert Berry (Alliance UK, Hush). It is very interesting to listen to the different styles of Bacon and Berry on a same song (Young Hearts) and what would have been GTR second album. This really is a must for any GTR collector, and all the musicians involved.
There was a bootleg of this unreleased material, but this is taken from a first generation tape owned by a recording studio employee, with much better sound quality. (thanks to K.V. for this exclusive)

OUTTA THE BLUE – Demos 1986-1993 *EXCLUSIVE*

And with the request of OUTTA THE BLUE self titled LP, we are offering another rarity; some of the band’s demos recorded between 1986 -1993. The band never secured a major label contract, but certainly deserved to.
These demos are most of excellent audio quality, professionally recorded.
The early tracks are in the style of the band’s 1986 LP, then in the ’90s OUTTA THE BLUE turned more classic hard rock, always driven by a strong guitar work. Russ Parrish (now known as Satchel in STEEL PANTHER) performed on some songs here.
It isn’t the ‘Lost Jewels’ series, nor a FnA rarities release, it’s the 0dayrox team unearthing this rare, unreleased material for you all.
