...Here's hoping! All I know is that a while back (around the spring of '98, if my memory serves me correctly) Metal Edge magazine reported that Tommy Thayer was working toward getting the back catalogue re-issued. Then, quite a while later, I read that his heavy invovlement with Kiss and a number of Kiss projects forced him to put his efforts on hold. Maybe the other guys (or at least Jamie) got tired of waiting. Whatever the case, the re-issue thing can't happen fast enough for me. I am DYING to be able to replace my vinyl!

Yeah--Now I remember reading this too in the same rag. Kiss consumed old Tommy's life (why not--Mr Moneybags Simmons i'm sure paid him more $$$ than he ever earned in B&B haha!!!), but you never know...Shit I never dreamed would ever get a CD reissue is constantly popping up, so don't give up hope....

As for US releases, the only thing B&B released in the states on disc was In Heat. It came out right when CD's were just starting to become the format of choice. The first three albums were reissued by Alfa/Brunette of Japan in 1994. The reason these command a lofty price tag is the record company went belly up about two years later. If they were still going strong, you can bet these suckers would still be in print!!! This label loved reissuing classic US stuff (like Prophet's three albums) onto CD.

Like I mentioned earlier, I was lucky to even pick up W/O Love when it was re-released...Been tempted to Ebay my copy, but sentimental value gets in the way!!!
