From a music scene that has spawned past and present musicians of such worldwide known and platinum selling acts such as Fuel, Megadeth, Mr. Big, Poison, Lynch Mob, Suicidal Tendencies, Alice Cooper, Stone Sour, Seether, and even Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake comes the release of a very special double disc release!  The Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania (Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton) has always been a breeding ground for extremely talented musicians.  Musicians such as Jimmy Degrasso, Greg Howe, Richie Kotzen, Kevin Miller, Robert Mason and Roy Mayorga all got their start gracing the stages of the Lehigh Valley area’s clubs.  And while these musicians went onto varying degrees of success, the collective bands from the Lehigh Valley have long been a "forgotten stepchild" to the often fickle music business.

December 19th ,2006 marked the CD release of “The Lehigh Valley Rocks!!, The Best of 1984-1994” that pays tribute to some of the Lehigh Valley's greatest bands in the hard rock and heavy metal genre from that era.  Without a doubt, the area's music scene was especially vibrant and had an exorbitance of talent during these years.  Many bands from around the country, that were far less talented than some of the Lehigh Valley talent, were thrown into the national spotlight while the musicians and bands of the area were often overlooked.  “Give credit where credit is due” is what is often said, and with this CD, we do just that!  The musicians and bands of the Lehigh Valley area, without question, DESERVE that!

This double CD release features 30 songs from 27 past AND present Lehigh Valley area bands.   All styles of hard rock and heavy metal are covered on the disc.  From AOR friendly hard rock, to glam, to progressive metal, and even power metal and thrash it’s all here!  Some bands on the disc released music available internationally such as Teeze, Leviathen, Dirty Blonde and Vicious Barreka.  Others such as Washed, The Mob and Destroyer were included on compilations released in the United States, some that included the likes of bands such as the Bulletboys, Winger and Kix.
