American Hard Rock became its own behemoth after the passing of the ’70s, when many of the bands gained MTV notoriety. There were many, many high profile rockers throughout the ’80s that owned parts of the airwaves typically given to Pop/New Wave bands. One of those bands was White Lion.

White Lion achieved high standing with the release of their second album, Pride (1987). From it came four successful singles, “Wait”, “Tell Me”, “When The Children Cry”, and “All You Need Is Rock ‘n’ Roll” Over time, several versions of White Lion delivered 8 studio sets. The last White Lion album, Return of the Pride, was released in 2008.

On June 26, Cherry Red will deliver a packaged 5CD box of remastered White Lion album classics that include the first four studio sets (Fight to Survive – 1985, Pride – 1987, Big Game – 1989, Mane Attraction – 1991). and a previously released 1988 live set from The Ritz in NYC, performed on February 11 contained on the fifth CD. There are a few bonus tracks included to round out the promise of the set. The 5CD set is called All You Need Is Rock ‘N’ Roll: The Complete Albums 1985-1991. A booklet completes the package.
