14 Songs Covered by David Lee Roth
It’s David Lee Roth’s birthday today, and to celebrate the occasion, we’ve compiled a playlist featuring the 14 covers sung by Diamond Dave over the course of his time with Van Halen and during his tenure on Warner Brothers as a solo artist. It really can’t be understated just how many young listeners got their first introduction to folks like John D. Loudermilk, Louis Prima, and Roy Rogers and Dale Evans as a result of hearing their tunes. Of course, there are also the less-informed folks who see a clip of Roy Orbison singing “Oh, Pretty Woman” and think it’s weird that some old dude in shades is singing a Van Halen song, but we can’t teach the whole world, we can only provide the information to help them learn, which is hopefully what this piece will accomplish.

Complete & Unbelievable: The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul
October 15 will mark the 50th anniversary of the release of one of the greatest R&B albums to be released during the course of the 1960s, and if you ask a music critic, it probably won’t take much prodding to get them to declare it one of the greatest R&B albums of all time.

Celebrate Cassette Store Day with the Ramones

If you visit Rhino.com on even a semi-regular basis, then you almost certainly already know about Record Store Day, but are you familiar with Cassette Store Day? Yes, it’s really a thing. In fact, it’s tomorrow, and to show our support for the event, we’re offering up a limited-edition release for the festivities: a new cassette release of the Ramones’ self-titled album. After all, it’s the 40th anniversary of the album, so we felt like it was the least we could do.
