I remember reading last year that guitarist Jon E. Love threatened to sue Jizzy over calling his last album a "Love/Hate" album so there's obviously "issues" between members although this has probably not got anything to do with the original recordings not being available. I'm sure you're right in that it's the usual record company bs that is keeping the originals in the vault

Great sound and Dean's voice is excellent but the song is a bit "by numbers" for me and those awfully clich├ęd lyrics compound that.

Yes, it was the '93 show with Sammy at the NEC. No worries with the '98 show, I think the DVD is from the master tape so the quality's really good. I suppose it's one consolation for us fans over here that at least there are loads of great DVD's released by the fans for us to watch until they (hopefully) make it over here!

If you mean August 18/19 1995, there's been a few fan-made dvd's of that ppv show. One was released earlier this year called "Re-Balanced in Toronto" that looks excellent. Fantastic show.

Yeah, this release just seems a bit cheap (an nasty) to me. The Super-Rock footage is enjoyable enough I guess but Bluesman is correct, it just doesn't sound right with one guitar. I don't think it's exactly bootleg quality as such (the Super-Rock footage was released back in the day on Laserdisc in Japan) but I take your point, I get the impression the product won't be befitting the Whitesnak

It was the "A Little Ain't Enough" tour in '91 but yes, they were great on that tour. If I remember rightly, didn't Jani break some ribs stage diving at the NEC show? Dog Eat Dog is definitely my favourite album of theirs, closely followed by Ultraphobic. Jani was an excellent songwriter - definitely one of the more talented people to come from the sunset strip scene.

Sounds ok for what it is, but the word pastiche always throws up a negative connotation for me. Glad some enjoy it but I always think what's the point, listen to the original.

Just a thought, but with a large percentage of what's on the DVD being pre-HD they probably thought it wasn't worth releasing a Blu-ray as any quality upgrade would have been negligible to say the least. If they thought that restoration of this old footage would bring it up to Blu-ray standards (which may not have been possible anyway), would that work out cost-effective - possibly not. I

Ozzy - Salt Lake City '84 Van Halen - Montreal '84 WASP - Live At The Lyceum '84 Dortmund Festival '83 The other one I'd have picked would have been Survivor - Japan '85 but it doesn't look like it's all up there - fantastic show.

It was definitely released on vinyl, as a double album but was very limited (2,000 copies if I remember correctly). Goes for BIG money now.

Loved the debut album. Out of the whole Nine Days, Bliss 66, Mars Electric etc. scene that was happening at the time, "Astronauts" was one of the best albums. Saw them when they toured over here in 2003 and even though there were only about 20 people in attendance, they were absolutely fantastic - one of the best shows I've ever seen.

As far as I know, the debut got remastered about ten years ago and was released as a 2CD "Deluxe Edition". No idea what the remaster sounded like though.

International II was an awesome show - both bands. Didn't go to the Apollo later on in the year but was it Kingofthehill who supported?

Yep, I agree too. I enjoyed his set and certainly didn't detect a lack of interest whatsoever. I actually thought his vocals were really good and as Someone-else said, he has tempered them accordingly. Whilst I'm not a fan of everything he's done, I really like the way he has constantly evolved and continues to try new things.

I much prefer a 9 or 10 track, 40 minute album. It's easier to digest. There are exceptions though and it tends to be the prog stuff (Dream theater, Transatlantic, Genesis etc.) that works in the longer format for me. My personal pet hate regarding the way albums are sold to us today is the bonus track/special edition rip-off. I generally find myself just buying "the album" now and I

Totally agree. As you say, it's just a manipulative marketing ploy to extract cash from us. It's like buying flowers for your girlfriend/wife on Valentine's day - because it's expected of us, it just feels insincere to me. Surely giving them any day other than Valentine's day is a more genuine gesture.
