I beg to disagree. I like Winger, but I always thought they played the Beavis & Butthead card a little too much. Warrant, Trixter, Slaughter, Extreme & Faster Pussycat to name a few, all released albums towards the end of '92 and they all sold considerably less than their previous releases (some completely tanked). There was no way Pull was going to sell and we all know why.

Yeah, I saw that Tony. Obviously the catalogue number is the dead giveaway but the disc itself looks really good. However, whether it's the colours (could be the light) or that back cover - but something just doesn't look quite right.

Oh well, I thought it was a good theory anyway! So, just for conformation's sake - do you have an original copy or proof of it's existence?

Mmm, definitely an interesting one this. I was always under the impression that it has never had an official CD release. However, Mik's copy with the catalogue number 826 648-2 suggests it did - or could that be a bootleg too? I checked my vinyl sleeve and it says "also available on cassette 826 648-4" - no mention of a CD. Now while that doesn't categorically confirm there wasn't an

Cheers Tony, I'm hoping that's the case. Saw them a few years ago with Keri & Robbie and they were excellent. Might be worth going seeing as Jizzo's saying it's the last time he'll play as Love/Hate.

Mmm, considering it's billed as Jizzy Pearl's Love/Hate, I'd kind of guessed that already. But thanks anyway.

Watched some of this classic last night. At around the 29 minute mark, they're interviewing Alice Cooper, Lemmy, Ozzy, Perry & Tyler about being original. Alice is stood there with the noose and says "I could think of a few of them I'd like to have right about now, right about here. Some of them are just pure plagiarists, I won't mention any names...initials start with..." And it's

Yep, still think it's a pretty strong album - Blood And Fire being my favourite track. Was kind of weird at first hearing some of those songs after knowing the different versions from the old Warner Bros demos but on the whole, I think it really worked. Always start the album at track two though - not a fan of Tattoo. It's also been great watching some of the boots from the tour, they seemed t

I believe you're being a little tinker DD. Why would Ramsey bother wasting his time suggesting anything by Nirvana or Pearl Jam to you when you've shown nothing but hatred towards them both in the past?

I haven't seen The Following but stuck with Under The Dome until the bitter end (of Season One). To this day I cannot for the life of me work out why I continued watching it, but I did. When it returns I'm going to do my damnedest not to watch it because let's face it, it's total shite.

Agree. Whilst I'm not a fan of everything he's done (solo-wise), he has written some excellent stuff. As for Genesis, I still hold out hope that the 5 of them will do something together one last time.

I've got a copy of it on cdr, it's a really good album and there's an excellent version of Get It While You Can originally recorded by Gary O' on his Strange Behaviour album from '84 on it. Apparently Chrysalis sent out advance copies on cassette but pulled it at the last minute. PM me your address and I'll get a copy to you.

Never been officially released on DVD, not sure why - probably licensing issues. Hopefully if it ever gets released, it'll have a longer playing time as they definitely played longer on that tour than the 60 minutes we got on the VHS. There's an version out there in trading circles on DVD which has been converted from the Laserdisc which looks excellent - a definite improvement on previous VHS

Great album, bought it on vinyl back in the day and played it to death! Sadly you're probably right, they were too intellectual or adult to appeal to the masses and it didn't really sound like what else was around at the time. Rob is such a talent, even though his solo albums are very different to the Riverdogs, there's some great material to be found on them. As Jimmy says, the live album

It's never been officially released, it's only available as a bootleg. You can download it here Journey - Tokyo, Japan 1981-07-31 This is the best version of it out there. You'll need a dual-layer disc to burn it to DVD as the files are too big for a standard blank.
