JIMMY DAVIS & JUNCTION Coming To MelodicRock Records

MelodicRock Records is immensely proud and excited to be partnering with American musician Jimmy Davis to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Jimmy Davis & Junction's debut album 'Kick The Wall'. Working with Jimmy over the past several months, MRR will chronicle the complete history of JD&J recordings and bring that to the fans, remastered from original master sources.
 
MelodicRock Records and Jimmy Davis will reissue the debut album 'Kick The Wall', freshly remastered by JK Northrup along with a very special bonus. The release will feature a second disc featuring a rare live concert, 'Live At The Bottom Line', as broadcast by Westwood One in 1987.
 
Jimmy Davis on that debut: "In the early 80s, I met John Scott. We were put together in a theme park show replacing my favorite local bluegrass band turned rock and roll band that featured fiddle, mandolin, guitar whiz Tommy Burroughs. I was already writing and wanted to incorporate all of my influences in one band like they did. But somewhere around 1985 I wrote 'Kick the Wall' and demoed it at John's home demo studio. We knew we were on to something. We started getting noticed and joined up with a new studio in Memphis, Sounds Unreel. The studio started in our soon to be manager, Jon Hornyak's house. But they grew into a full on 24 track studio. Our hero Jack Holder and Don C Smith all took us in and we stared recording what became the debut album."
 
But that's not all! A conversation that started well over a year ago will result in the long desired official release of one of the best unreleased melodic rock albums ever. We're talking about the phenomenal shelved sophomore Jimmy Davis & Junction album 'Going The Distance'. It's a melodic rock masterpiece.
 
You could be forgiven for never hearing about this album previously, or even be entirely unaware of Jimmy Davis and his talents as a singer, guitarist and songwriter. It's never too late to discover a masterpiece. And that's exactly what these albums represent. An extremely talented band at their very best, another victim of record label machinations.
 
Jimmy on the 'lost' album: "We starred on the second record in Memphis and ended up doing 4 or 5 songs in LA with Danny Kortchmar with Chad on drums. It took a long time and we had amazing quests, Warren Hayes co-wrote and played, Kevin Dukes from Jackson Browne's band and the Memphis Horns... But things were changing going into the 90s. Grunge for one. I was tired and frustrated, nothing made sense. We made the record for three different label presidents and it was time for a change. I wanted to do what is now called Americana. I simply walked away and 'Going the Distance' was shelved."
 
No one knows how the original recording of 'Going The Distance' leaked, probably from one of the original advance cassette that Chrysalis Records sent out when the album was touted for release back in 1990.
But that would explain the less than perfect audio that has been heavily traded by collectors ever since.
And if that's you - wait until you hear this record remastered from the original tapes!
 
The power, passion and performances on 'Going The Distance' are nothing short of melodic rock perfection.
Mixing the rootsy, natural live Midwestern rock n roll style with the commercial melodic rock sound of the day is a brilliant combination.
Imagine Bryan Adams in his 'Into The Fire' style or John Mellencamp during his 'Scarecrow' period. Add in some Charlie Sexton, John Kilzer, Richie Sambora (solo) and Jimmy's own unique style and you get an amazing record that I personally would have had on regular rotation over the last two decades had the release gone according to plan.
 
Using previously unseen original artwork for both albums - including using the original cover Jimmy wanted for 'Kick The Wall' - this is an essential purchase for longtime Jimmy Davis fans. And there is no doubt that Jimmy is going to attract a whole new group of followers with these albums available soon.
 
MRR will release the 'Kick The Wall 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition' with bonus live disc and the 'Going The Distance' album in May. Exact date, audio previews and pre-order details to follow soon.

JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE - He Saw It Coming (Review)

content:

Produced By: 
Jack Russell & Robbie Lochner
Release Date: 
2017
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style:

Label: 
Frontiers
 
I feel as if when delivering an unfavourable review, I need to preface it with my qualifications to do so, before someone starts the “oh he just doesn’t like that artist/style it’s too soft/heavy/bluesy.”
So with that in mind, I love Great White and I own every album from start to last plus Jack’s own previous solo material. His debut solo was great! And for the most part, I like them all.
And this lives up to none of them. I’ve tried several times to re-start fresh with this album and each time I’ve failed.
 
Could it be that on just the second track in Jack breaks into a fricken rap in the middle of this horrible jangly, bluesy pop track that was beyond annoying even before the vocal acrobats. And he’s almost at it again on Crazy, which is only slightly less annoying.
Opening with Sign Of The Times, it’s pretty evident this is going to be a laid back affair and sure enough…its more laid back than a sunbaking lizard.
The songs just bore me I’m sorry to say. And there is precious little comparison to that of Great White, even with Jack’s (sometimes) recognizable voice.
 
The performances are very pedestrian, I don’t rate the band here at all and the songs are devoid of any passion or energy. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any slower, along comes the crawling ballad Anything For You.
This highlights the very problem here – I am a huge fan of the slow Great White ballads like Save Your Love and She Only. Soul and passion in spades.
Another slow blues/reggae type number is the instantly skippable Don’t Let Me Go, then there’s more jangly guitars on Spy Vs Spy. What’s with the awful guitar playing here?
Blame It On The Night is about the only track besides the opening number that delivers a proper riff and while you are still celebrating that fact, the a capella Godspeed will send you panicking for the stop button. What a steaming pile of cow shit this song is.

Most of this album can be filed under “WTF”, and the parts that aren’t are devoid of passion, energy and conviction. It’s such a laid back boring album and without having any great expectations, my hopes are completely shattered.
Awful record….and I never thought this would happen, but the music is even worse than the cover artwork!

WARRANT Return With 'Harder Louder Faster' May 12

Artist: 
Frontiers Music is pleased to announce the release of WARRANT's new studio album, LOUDER HARDER FASTER on May 12, 2017!
Under their belt, Warrant has eight million records sold worldwide, two Top Ten Billboard albums, five Top 40 Billboard hits, five #1 MTV videos...the list goes on and on. Now, six years after the release of “Rockaholic,” the album that relaunched the band as a force to be reckoned with in the 21st Century, Warrant returns with another slab of muscular hard rock, aptly titled “Louder Harder Faster”, to be released on Frontiers Music Srl on May 12th.
With a line-up featuring original members, Erik Turner, Jerry Dixon, Joey Allen, and Steven Sweet along with singer Robert Mason (Lynch MobCry of Love), Warrant are now stronger than ever. Mason’s vocals remain a breath of fresh air and his swagger on the songs gives new life and a bright future to the band. With production handled by Foreigner and ex-Dokken bass player Jeff Pilson (Last In Line, Starship, Adler’s Appetite, etc.), Warrant is sounding tighter and playing better than ever before. "Louder Harder Faster", true to the band's roots, is full of rockers with some classic ballads thrown in and will surely send their faithful fans into a frenzy.
Erik Turner says, “[y]ou can hear and feel the emotions of the last 25 + years of being in this band poured into LHF. The fun and the frustrations, the pleasure and the pain… a whole lot of blood, sweat, tears and beers went into the making of this album. Love it or hate it, its the real f’ckn deal, 100% pure melodic hard rock. Hand crafted by five musicians who dedicated their lives to music when they were just little kids with big dreams."
Jerry Dixon adds, “Louder Harder Faster is truly one of our best records to date. It has all the classic Warrant ingredients that people have come to know, plus a lot of extras that keep it in the modern realm of todays music. It’s a perfect mix between Balls and Ballads. When we started this project over two years ago, we wanted to bring the listener back to the days of sitting in the living room and cranking up a record from start to finish. Making full records seems to be a lost art, we hope in some small way that this album helps people find that art again.”
Warrant was one of the most popular and successful rock bands to emerge out of Hollywood, CA in the late 80's and early 90's. The band was formed in the early 80's by Erik Turner and Jerry Dixon. In 1989, Warrant released their classic debut “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich”, which immediately entered the charts and launched the hit singles “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries”, and “Heaven”, which climbed up to number two on the US charts. With extensive touring for DRFSR, sales exceeded 2 million records in the U.S.
In the summer of 1990, their second album “Cherry Pie”was released. The album turned out to be an even bigger success, featuring the Top Ten hits "I Saw Red", "Uncle Toms Cabin" and the rock anthem "Cherry Pie”, which received massive airplay on MTV and continues to get millions of plays on streaming services and YouTube to this very day.
WARRANT's signature style of rock is catchy, very melodic, and remains the band's calling card. The band is fired up and more inspired than ever musically! The band will be out touring in support of "Louder Harder Faster", so be sure to catch them when they hit your town! Full list of tour dates here: http://www.warrantrocks.com/tour-dates.html

SNAKECHARMER Deliver 'Second Skin' May 12

Artist: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of Snakecharmer’s sophomore album, “Second Skin” on May 12.
 
The British hard rock supergroup Snakecharmer was originally founded in 2011 by former Whitesnake/David Coverdale members Micky Moody and Neil Murray along with the perfect mix of high calibre musicians including Laurie Wisefield (Wishbone Ash), Harry James (Thunder, Magnum), Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne), and Chris Ousey (Heartland).
 
The band’s debut self-titled album was released in 2013 and musically the record showed a finely crafted hard rock style mixed with blues and melodic overtones, akin to Micky and Neil's former band and Bad Company, with hints of early Foreigner as well.
 
Snakecharmer played live shows regularly in support of the album’s release and built a solid fanbase in the UK and Europe. In 2016, Moody left the band and was replaced by the Irish-born Simon McBride on lead guitar. Simon was hailed “among the best blues-rock players anywhere in the world” by Guitarist Magazine and has built up an impressive resume playing with outstanding rock, soul, and blues artists.
 
“Second Skin” is the hotly anticipated second effort from Snakecharmer and brings the listener straight back to the good old days of real rock n' roll played with heart and soul. Slightly harder edged compared to the debut, but with roots still firmly planted in the classic hard rock vibe with a hint of late '70s AOR, this new record sounds fresh and crisp.
 
Bassist Neil Murray says “It’s been a rather long journey, but finally I’m very pleased to announce that Snakecharmer are soon to release our new album, Second Skin. The band has now found its own unique musical identity and in particular Laurie Wisefield and Chris Ousey have contributed some very powerful and melodic songs, which still have the Snakecharmer blues-rock distinctive trademarks. The band works in a very democratic and collaborative way, which means that sometimes there is a lot of discussion before decisions are finally made, and it was great to have a more objective viewpoint from producer Gary Stevenson, who also fired the band up with his ideas, enthusiasm and sonic skills. We can’t wait to get out on tour and play some of the new songs, together with the best of our established classics, both Snakecharmer and Whitesnake, and showcase our new virtuoso guitarist, the brilliant Simon McBride.”
 
Strong, passionate, rocking, and blues-laden, “Second Skin” is quality British hard rock at its very best!
 
Tracklisting:
1. Sounds Like A Plan
2. That Kind Of Love
3. Are You Ready To Fly
4. Follow Me Under
5. I'll Take You As You Are
6. Hell Of A Way To Live

TOKYO MOTOR FIST - Tokyo Motor Fist (Review)

information persons: 
content: 
93%
Produced By: 
Steve Brown
Release Date: 
2017
Released: 
Worldwide
Musical Style: 
Melodic Rock
Score: 
93
Label: 
Frontiers
 
You’d have to be almost dead not to get caught up in the infectious fun that is Tokyo Motor Fist. The name might conjure up thoughts of an ancient form of Japanese bondage, but at least they didn’t name themselves Trixter Danger.
Yes, the most talented Steve Brown (Trixter, Guitar) and the always flamboyant Ted Poley (Danger Danger, vocals) team with the rhythm section of Greg Smith (Ted Nugent, Rainbow, Alice Cooper) and Chuck Burgi (Rainbow, Blue Oyster Cult, Joe Lynn Turner) for what amounts to a meeting of the New Jersey chapter of the Melodic Rock Mafia, to create an infectious slice of classic 80s melodic rock that you just have to rock along with.
 
While the album may not have the polish of a major 80s budget, it does pass the crankability test and shines when at maximum volume.
Following his great recent solo album, Ted Poley again delivers a powerhouse vocal while Steve Brown provides the backbone of the sound, his soulful guitar playing filling the air between hooks and choruses. The album is also a tribute to his songwriting prowess.
For the most part this delivers exactly what you’d expect – a mix of modern day Trixter’s smart melodic rock and Danger Danger’s hands in the air party anthems.
 
Look no further than the opening salvo of Pickin' Up The Pieces, Love Me Insane, Gimme Your Good Lovin Shameless and Black And Blue to deliver plus the moody feel good ballads Love, Get You Off My Mind and Don’t Let Me Go work to balance the record and provide breathing space between the rockers.
You're My Revolution brings out the double kick drums for a rousing tempo boost, but its Put Me To Shame and Done To Me where Steve Brown’s connection to Def Leppard seems to get dialled up. For a minute I thought I was listening to Sweden’s Leppard loving Grand Design.

How could fans of the two principle artists not be happy with this? It delivers exactly what you might have been hoping for, perhaps exceeding expectations with the strong hooks and great performances.
No complaints here and given the positive fan reaction so far, one would have to think that this will develop further just as the ‘other’ D2 side project The Definants has.

++++++
 
After only one song on iTunes and Spotify and without any commercial backup, Swedish Melodic Rock band ROCKETT LOVE received a great deal of radio time and a fully seated venue playing their debut gig. The song “Rocket Love” had a big viral spin when Beau Hill took the song to his studio and produced it.

  

The band started in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Daniel Samuelsson met guitarist Stefan Westerlund at a local reunion concert. Fueled by mutual interest in 80’s rock, the two began recording original material in Daniel’s studio. ‘It became clear right away that we had something worthwhile after the first couple of songs’ says Daniel, ‘Stefan and me just clicked, and we knew the time was right to bring back this classic sound with a touch of modern production. The two began working on the EP “The best is yet to come” and contacted lead guitarist Gustav Eklund. He gave ROCKETT LOVE the tone and energy with his magic fingers that you only here in the great masters such as Michael Schenker and Gary Moore. Four songs were recorded, and the project emerged into a band.
 
Bass player Dennis Vestman (Grand Design, Steel Attack) and drummer Fredrik Ahlin completed the group’s line-up. Fredrik and Daniel had a history as musical friends in both Sour System and Slip Into Silk.

With the band being complete and some new songs recorded ROCKETT LOVE entered the stage at Rockland, Sweden. Together with Grand Design they sold out the venue and the viral spin began. They had a really great song and sound in form of the track ‘Rocket Love’. The Band traveled all the way to the USA and to meet Beau Hill who produced the track.  ROCKETT LOVE released ‘Rocket Love’ on various digital platforms in June 2016. With several gigs and a fast-growing audience the Swedes hit the studio to record their full debut album “Grab The Rockett” in Autumn/ Winter 2016. Halfway through the studio session ROCKETT LOVE contacted Studio Haga and met up with the young producer Christian Svedin. He had the ears, the courage and the stamina to lift the band even more. The process in the studio shaped the tone of the band to what and where ROCKETT LOVE is today, and after almost a year of writing, recording and producing the album “Grab The Rocket” now is ready to show the world what good Hard Rock music is all about.

TOTO Announce 2017 US Dates

Artist: 
 
TOTO ANNOUNCE ITINERARY FOR "AN EVENING WITH" SUMMER TOUR OF THE U.S.
First Set Of U.S. Summer Dates For 2017 Announced
Tickets On Sale This Week 
Tickets & VIP Available Via: www.totoofficial.com
Los Angeles, CA --- Multi-Grammy Award winning band TOTO has announced the first set of dates for their Summer U.S. tour, which will begin on June 2nd in Lake Charles, LA. The shows are billed as "An Evening With Toto” and their performances will feature repertoire for their latest studio album XIV, classic hits, and both band and fan favorites from their vast catalog in performances that will stage two hours of music. Last summer, Toto embarked their first U.S. headline run in over a decade.
The core Toto members, Steve Lukather, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Joseph Williams will be joined by Lenny Castro (percussion), Shannon Forest (drums), Shem von Schroeck (bass), Warren Ham (saxophone, vocals). Guitarist Steve Lukather shares, “We had such a great time last summer that we wanted to regroup and hit some cities we didn’t get to last time. Always a thrill to bring our full show around the country.”
Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of Toto. As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5000 albums that together amass a sales history of a half a billion albums. Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations and were inducted in to the Musicians Hall Of Fame in 2009.
With close to 40 years together and literally thousands of credits, including the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and accolades to their names, TOTO remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world. They are the benchmark by which many artists base their sound and production, and they continue to transcend the standards set by the entire music community, being simply synonymous with musical credibility. Their repertoire continues to be current via high profile usage on broadcast television. They are pop culture, and are one of the few 70’s bands that have endured the changing trends and styles to a career enjoy a multi-generational fan base.
In 2015, Toto released their first new studio album in ten years – TOTO XIV. The album exhibited world-class musicianship, masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary, and melodies that the collective talents of Lukather, Paich, Porcaro, Williams and their assembled band-mates brought to life. It debuted Top 10 in nine countries around the world and became their most successful album since 1988 in the U.S. and UK.
In 2016 they released the Blu-Ray/DVD title Live At Montreux which quickly charted Top Five or better around the globe as well. With the band’s 40th Anniversary coming up in 2018, TOTO has major plans in the works to celebrate their enduring career.
