iTunes Store Bargains – November 2015
These great albums are available at amazing prices currently in the Australian iTunes store. There is something here for all rock students of the Eastern Suburbs School of Music to listen and learn.
Eat Em and Smile – David Lee Roth
David Lee Roth left Van Halen in 1985. At the time they were the biggest band on the planet. Roth surrounded himself with a band of amazing musical talent like Steve Vai on guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass and Gregg Bisonette on drums. He produced a great batch of songs like “Yankee Rose”, “Shyboy” and “Ladies Nite in Buffalo”. A steal at $6.99 in the Australian iTunes store. So good I bought it again!
5150 – Van Halen
This compliments the previous iTunes bargain. The first album made by Van Halen with new singer Sammy Hagar. Contains huge hits like “Dreams” and “Why Can’t This Be Love”. Awesome guitar tunes such as “Best of Both Worlds” and the title track “5150”. Completed dated 80s sounding production due to the electronic drum kit sounds played by Alex Van Halen. Not one song is a miss on this great album from 1986.
Available in the Australian iTunes store currently for $6.99. If this is not in your library already get over to the store now!
Those Were The Days – Cream
This is the boxset of all albums released by heavy metal pioneers Cream. The band had Jack Bruce on bass, Ginger Baker on drums and Eric Clapton on guitar. Each musician is a legend of their instrument. With classics of the era like “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room” and “I Feel Free”. These albums inspired all hard rock music that followed it. Get the whole Cream catalogue for $22.99.
