Not a fan of re-recordings so won't be getting this. Been listening to Foreigner quite a bit this week but not once have I thought to play their re-records and it's the same with Journey - why would you want to listen to Arnel sing those songs when you can listen to Perry. Plus, it's not like Coverdale is going to improve these songs. His voice is obviously nowhere near what it was 40 years a

I wouldn't say they are erasing the Hagar era, they are just not acknowledging it. And let's face it, they're not going to while Dave's in the band are they.

Yep, although I have a soft spot for the trashy, throwaway glam of the debut, Flesh & Blood is my favourite too. A definite return to form after Open Up & Say Ahh!

Great show. Agree with what everyone's saying here, Perry sounds fantastic on this and the set list is great. If you downloaded this from Amazon, it looks like it's a similar story to the Oklahoma '83 show we discussed on here a couple of weeks ago, namely that it's another LeftField Media release and has once again omitted a couple of tracks from the original radio broadcast. This is ano

It's a moot point. I've heard/read the Jon vs Richie argument before, so maybe the more pertinent question for the pro-Richie crowd would be - would he have attained the level of success he has without Jon?

Check out this interview with guitarist Ronny Jones Double Stop Podcast It's really interesting. He talks about Mac Meda, the court case and the whole Black Bambi period.

Yes, please post the link. I have a copy but not great quality. Guitarist Ronny Jones was in the band Mac Meda in the early '80s with Robbin Crosby and Rob Lamothe - I think Warrior's Tommy Asakawa was in them at one point too. Two of their songs (I'm Insane and Scene Of The Crime) were on Ratt's Out Of The Cellar and even though they were co-written with Ronny and Rob, they weren't given cred

It would be amazing if the Dear Mr. President got officially released but much like the unreleased Darling Cruel album "Movies From The Mind" from the same period, I'm sure they'll sit in the vaults forever.

Yes, it's been circulating in bootleg circles for many years, the best being one called "Shades Of Passion" which is from the master LP's. This official release looks like it has omitted the last two songs, Anyway You Want It and Seperate Ways.

The highest quality MP3 is 320kbps, WAV files used on CD's are 1411kbps - what's not to hate? Granted, they're useful for convenience in ipod's or in the car or whatever, but why anyone would actually pay for them is completely beyond me.

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 clichéd 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.
