2003 saw the release of the book Hollywood Rocks -- a 208-pager that documents the wild and crazy days of the west coast glam metal movement circa the 1980s. Two years later, the folks at Cleopatra/Deadline Records have compiled a four-disc follow-up to the book, Hollywood Rocks: Audio Companion.

This is one of those typically American over-the-top tomes with yards of colour, photos from the streets, band photos, gig flyers, posters, concert tickets, press cuttings, the kitchen sink and is amazing due to all these things and more. I don't think you could find another book so chock-full of memorabilia, but it is a fabulous study of the Hollywood rock scene of the 1980's.

Just to keep things straight this set is not covering any of the hair metal or pop metal bands outside of the LA scene which is why you wont see any Def Leppard Slaughter Kix and other bands who were outside of the LA scene That being said if you have any interest in the LA music scene of the 80s then this is the only collection you will ever need All of the names you know are here plus a great deal of unknowns that were popular acts during the 80s This set spans from the early days of LA Metal with a lot of heavier more Sabbath and Zeppelin influence present through the glam era and out into the early 90s where the sound was back to its roots The reason the 80s LA club scene worked was because of the bands By reading the booklet that comes with the collection which by the way is extremely informative it is evident that members from all of these bands knew eachother and were often times switching bands It truly makes the so called family tree of LA metal quite interesting The music though is what stands out and here the music is all great All of these songs were hits at least out on the Sunset Strip and it is clear to see why I find myself listening to these disks more than almost any of my other cds or records and that is saying a lot Absolutle must have
