The ”Lost US Jewels” Vol.6 TIMOTHY LEWIS – Timothy Lewis (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

Here’s in exclusive another installment from the awesome ”Lost US Jewels” series, the Vol.6, American melodic rocker TIMOTHY LEWIS self-titled album “Timothy Lewis”.
Here’s a songwriter / vocalist that is Steve Perry, Kevin Chalfant and Hugo all rolled into one; a bold statement for sure, but when you get to hear this guy I’m sure you’ll agree that he is something special. As a proof, while most the material here is penned by Lewis, he also does his own version of Perry’s terrific AOR song ‘Lost Angels’ (only recorded by Perry in demo form, featured into 0dayrox’s compilation The Vault).
Lewis’ songwriting and vocal-style is very close to the one of those big Melodic Rock acts of the ’80s such as Journey, Styx and Boston, and most the recordings on this CD only were distributed as promo material to record labels.

The ”Lost UK Jewels” Vol.17 ; SHOGUN – III The Lost Album (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

Today we bring to you perhaps one of best releases from the ”Lost UK Jewels” series: Vol.17 ; “SHOGUN – III The Lost Album”, the band’s third album that unfortunately never saw the light of day, due to Jet Records closing their activity at the end of the ’80s.
So here’s finally the official release – limited to 500 copies and already out of print – of this pre‐production Master, 13 long lost tracks of great keyboard-driven British AOR / Melodic Rock, close to the style of early Bon Jovi / White Sister / Surgin and Survivor.

The ”Lost UK Jewels” Vol.9 ; DIRTY TRYX – Rough Ride *EXCLUSIVE*

Continuing with the awesome ”Lost Jewels” collectibles, here’s ”Lost UK Jewels Vol.9 ; DIRTY TRYX – Rough Ride“, featuring another rare band from the series, limited to 500 copies CD, already out of print.
Straight out of Bolton, Lancashire, UK, came Dirty Tryx that sold out the Albert Hall venue, had the legendary Derek Oliver on speed dial and a thousand plus members of their fan club.
This six-piece band delivers melodic hard rock in the vein of FM, Tobruk, Kiss Of The Gypsy, Glasgow, etc, and their quality music certainly deserved to be exposed.

The ”Lost UK Jewels” Vol.18 ; FIRST STRIKE – Just Another Night +1 (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Continuing with the awesome ”Lost Jewels” collectibles, here’s “The Lost UK Jewels Vol.18 ; FIRST STRIKE – Just Another Night +1” one of the latest releases from the series, limited to 500 copies.
A band that saw Dave Ling in the pages of Raw Magazine declaring that they had the image and musical ability to take on the big boys. And its easy to see why he came to that assuption with material such as ‘Nasty’, ‘Girls of the World’ and ‘Hold Tight’ at his disposal : think ’89 Danger Danger with a British touch.
Theirs was the sound of UK Melodic Rock / AOR last great white hope from the late ’80s, a band that should have done so much more but were ultimately washed away by a music scene that was rapidly changing in the early 90s. But what they did leave was a fine musical legacy with this CD being the ample proof.
