Turn to the left, turn to the right. It’s David Lee Roth’s latest release ‘Hi-Fashion’!
The song is another from the 2007 sessions with guitarist John 5 dubbed “The California Sessions”, which also includes “Somewhere Over the Rainbow Bar and Grill”, “Low-Rez Sunset”, “Giddy-Up!”, “Alligator Pants”, “Pointing at the Moon”, “Nothing Could Have Stopped Us Back Then”, “Manda Bala”, and the recently released “The Shit That Killed Elvis”.
“I think what’s magical about those songs is it’s just me and Dave,” said John 5 during a recent appearance on Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk. “It’s just me and Dave playing and recording live and I think that’s what you don’t really hear a lot today.
“Whenever I hear this stuff, I can visualize it,” he added. “And it’s pretty magical that way, ’cause it’s, like, ‘Okay.’ It reminds me of back in the day when they were recording and the records were spinning and they were making the record as it was recording because you can’t mess up. And especially you don’t wanna mess up around David Lee Roth. So it’s really cool that way. I could just visualize just me and Dave going through these songs and recording ’em that way.
