Review

Eonian Records has put together a stunning 4-CD box with 36 West Hollywood Strip bands. This box includes 72 tracks re-mastered from original studio recordings that consisiting mainly of demo tapes that were just meant for the recording industry. Majority of these 72 tracks has never been previously released. Couple of bands has released albums on Eonian such as Charlemagne, Cold Shot, Shake City and Charlotte. The giant 60-page color booklet is amazing with 13 pages of were JohnnyX of The Wild and Adam Gifford of Paradise gives us the full story of the Sunset Strip. You also get a close look at each band and hundreds of archived photos. So you can imagine that there´s lots of candy for lovers of 80s and early 90s sleaze/hair metal and glam fans. I won´t say that every band had it back then but still nice to hear them as well but overall many of these bands are damn fine to listen to and should have got a record deals back then. Those bands that catch my attention most was Longe Gone, Bad Bones, Bad Blood, Enticier, Hardly Dangerous (only female band on this box), Blackboard Jungle, Paradise, TAZ, Deaf, Dumb & Blonde, Agent Zero (damn good) and Byte The Bullet. This is a box filled with hugh sounding rockers with catchy hooklines delivered with attitude. I think many of you will find your own favourites on this awesome box. I have to say that Eonian Records has done a marvellous work on this box and gathered some fine acts to finally get their stuff out to be heard by fans from this era. What more can I say about this fantastic 4-CD box that will take you back to the hey-daze of hair metal. So I suggest you get a copy of this and take a drive down the lane to Sunset Strip. Let´s hope we will get a Volume 2 in the near future as well.
