MARK HOLDEN – The Lost 80s Album [Unreleased]

This one was requested by one of you; MARK HOLDEN‘s “The Lost 80s Album“. Holden is an Australian singer, songwriter, actor, and record producer who had four top 20 hit singles in the late Seventies. After the lack of success of his fourth, 1983’s solo album, Holden focused on becoming a songwriter and music producer.
In the 1980s he worked as a songwriter in Los Angeles providing material recorded by Meat Loaf, Joe Cocker, Fleetwood Mac, Steve Jones and many more. Meanwhile, Holden recorded many of his songs but never were released.
“The Lost 80s Album” comprises most of these ‘lost 80s’ recordings, all with a stupendous sound quality. Musically this is cool US radio friendly rock&pop circa 1986-88, in a style similar to Richard Marx, Paul Young, Don Henley, etc.
A collectors piece

SATAN (UK) – Early Rituals [Recorded 1981-1986 / Remastered] (2020)

What? 0dayrox becoming a death / black metal site? Not at all. SATAN from UK where part of the first half of the ’80s NWOBHM movement, and their music was a mix of classic metal and hard rock. Seems their name and ‘occult imaginary’ weren’t enogh to get a record deal, but the band managed to cut three different demos – in 1981, 1982 and 1986 – which were reproduced on cassette tape only, now remastered and released as “Early Rituals“.
Satan don’t scare you grandma anymore, this is just a fun, entertaining slice from the effervescent British 80s Rock scene.
NWOBHM took the proto-metal of Black Sabbath and mixed it with the hard rock of Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, infused it with the spirit of punk and some of the progressive rock of the era, and came up with the last bridge between metal and rock before speed metal punted it out of the park.
Early Rituals uncovers this era with zest.

THE HEAT – Untold Story Vol. II (Out Of Print)

As requested, here’s all the complete recordings from Hays, Kansas based mid-Eighties melodic rockers THE HEAT. Seems the band was a sensation at the time, and while they never got a major label deal, the guys managed to put on tape a bunch of their songs only locally released / distributed. They were so good that even a couple of these tunes appeared into a movie soundtrack.
Untold Story Vol. II” is a collection of a somehow ‘lost’ band playing classic mid-Eighties US Melodic Rock / AOR ready for the radio, plenty of terrific melodies and choruses. And the best part of it: the sound quality / production is very good.
This is the actual CD (be aware there’s poor cassette versions floating around) fully remastered for your listening pleasure.

Released by SteelHeart Memories Records (the same of the Lost UK / US Jewel series) for the very first time on CD, here’s the cool request of Glam Hard Rockers LAROXX self-titled debut album, originally out only on cassette in 1992, however half of the tracks here are previously unreleased.
While LaRoxx born in Italy, the album was originally recorded for a release in the USA and Japan thru a major label, and a promotional tour in the States (prior of the announced release) was set up, with gigs played at famous “Troubador”, “Foundation Forum” and “F.M. Station” in L.A.
Unfortunately things…

JOURNEY – In The City Of Brotherly Love ’86 (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

One of the last concerts of JOURNEY featuring Steve Perry has been released under the title “In The City Of Brotherly Love“. Captured during the ‘Raised On Radio Tour’, Journey were partway through a U.S. tour when they performed on Feb. 1, 1987 at the Sullivan Sports Arena in Anchorage.
So it may even have come to a surprise to them that it was the last show they’d ever play with singer Steve Perry. Yeah, it seems incredible, but it’s 34 years now.
When they completed their performance of “Faithfully” that night, they closed the book on their rise to fame. And even though there would be one more album with Perry (Trial By Fire), and a 10-minute guest appearance at an all-star concert in 1991, it was the last time he led them through a full performance.
Sound quality is pretty good (A+), a document from one of the most important AOR bands in history.

THE FIRM – Firmly Rare (0dayrox compilation) *EXCLUSIVE*

COVERDALE • PAGE – The B-Sides, The Outtakes & The Demos (0dayrox compilation)

To complete the COVERDALE • PAGE saga here, we made our own 0dayrox compilation packing all the singles / alternate versions from the album. The Japanese Maxi-Single CD ‘Take Me For A Little While’ includes the two different versions of the song, 2 of ‘Take A Look At Yourself’ (we love this tune) and a Guitar Crunch Mix of ‘Shake My Tree’.
The other remaining single from the album, ‘Over Now (Edit Single Version)’, it’s included into the folder comprising the outtakes ‘Good Love’ and the excellent ‘Saccharin’ – why they decided not to put it on the album is a puzzle to us.
Additionally, there’s almost all the COVERDALE • PAGE songs in its Demo / Rehearsal versions. These are from a different source than the poor sounding files circulating among traders. All are taken from 0dayrox member’s vaults.

COVERDALE / PAGE – Definitive Nagoya 1993 Last Concert Ever [Japan Edition Only] (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

COVERDALE / PAGE self-titled album resulted pretty successful not only in sales – certified Gold, and eventually went Platinum – but artistically also. However it was destined to be a short-lived project, something both musicians put clear since their joined for this project.
So a seven date tour in Japan, along with cameos in Reno and Vancouver in 1991, represents the total live output of the duo before going their separate ways.
The December 22nd show at a gymnasium in Nagoya is their final live appearance, and according to reports, the best of all. And now it has been released by well known and good Japanese bootleg label Zodiac under the title “Definitive Nagoya 1993“.
The sound quality is very good – much better than previous bootlegs with cuts floating around – and it’s a great document from these giant musicians working together.

MERRI HOAXX – Never Jokes [previously unreleased / remastered] *EXCLUSIVE*

Vocalist Joel Ellis is well known in the hard / hair metal scene fronting Cats In Boots, Heavy Bones or Ellis Island, but before that he started his professional career with MERRI HOAXX. Together with his guitar mate Denny Holan founded the band in their native Cleveland at the beginning of the Eighties.
Soon both decided the group needed to head for the higher ground, then led the way to Los Angeles, California and the Hollywood Sunset Strip Rock scene.
Merri Hoaxx created major record label interest from Atlantic Records, who brought the band onto their roster. They started to record the debut album in 1986 but as happened with many of their colleagues, the company shelved the project and decided to fully support their other already raising acts.
So after decades, Merri Hoaxx’s recordings under the title “Never Jokes“, were finally released.
