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.

Of course, it's the artist prerogative if he doesn't want his shows (or songs) recorded or put on Youtube or wherever but I personally don't see the problem - unless of course their live performances are not cutting the mustard... On the flipside, wasn't it great how Van Halen actively encouraged fans to film their shows on the last tour so we all have plenty of great multi-cam DVD's & Blu

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
