Discover "The Roots Of Great White" With New Dante Fox Release

Back in October, Dead Line Music (a division of Cleopatra Records) delivered the missing link to the rise of eighties hard rock band, Great White with "Dante Fox: The Roots Of Great White 1978-1982." Great White may be best know for their hit singles "Rock Me" and "Once Bitten Twice Shy," but their early days were filled with hook-driven guitar riffs and an often repetitive chorus. This new 17-track release certainly shows the beginning stages of what was to come, but the quality of these demos are not perfect, but still carry a certain nostalgic appeal.

Dante Fox were able to blast you away with their energy, as displayed in the swift pace of "Motor Love," while "Money" showcased the singing range of a young Jack Russell. The band had their finger on the pulse of the Sunset Strip with the pop/rock gloss of "Front Row Girl," while "Bead In The Rain" is raw and rocking and ready to blow you away. One of the highlights of this release is the radio appearance of Dante Fox on K-West radio performing the high energy attack of "Need Your Love." Stardom was right around the corner, as their performance of "Calling You" and The Blues" look to help bridge the gap between the band's early hard rock influences and the sound that was exploding in the music industry in the late-seventies and early-eighties with the likes of Van Halen and Judas Priest. This new "Dante Fox: The Roots Of Great White 1978-1982" release is available on CD and limited edition blue vinyl.
