I’ve got a bunch of Rock Candy titles, probably at least 30 or more. The packaging is always stellar, and sound-wise there’s far more good than bad- but yeah, there are definitely some duds. Of course the source material has a lot to do with this- as does who the remastering engineer is and what decisions he makes. The process (and results) can be very subjective. Maybe a good idea to reca

Always great to see old favorites still putting out new material. I was a big fan of Up and So Fired Up too. Sounds like they’ve gone full circle back to their earlier more southern style roots- haven’t checked out all the samples yet but that title track has a cool Allmans jammy kinda groove to it, nice guitar interplay.

Yeah, as great as Smitty and Ross may have been back in the day, to be honest they had become a snooze fest of a rhythm section. Hopefully this will kick things up a notch or two.

The addition of Narada has energized Cain and Schon in a major way- he is a total package who can write, sing, produce- and- one of the most badass drummers on the planet. I know Steve Smith worshipped him- he’s got Dunbar’s power, Smith’s finesse, and Deen’s energy- all in one. Check this out for energy: https://youtu.be/QgTeEHz46Xk https://youtu.be/c7VTcTTgXM0

Yeah T, everybody knew him for Into The Night and not that much else, but Benny could rock a bit too- I remember him best because the band I was in at the time used to do a cover of Mighta Been Love- (we had a habit of stealing slightly obscure stuff and playing it like it was own, lol)... it was a great little rocker to play at a bar/ club to get people up! https://youtu.be/C_oUHAWhJnk

Another case where I already have all of these- I don’t recall any of them sounding bad- is it worth it for the remastering and booklets... I dunno. The bonus tracks on the recent Sabu S/T were a great addition... I wonder what the bonus tracks are on the Heartbreak / Only Child albums- those have been previously issued multiple times with various different bonus tracks, haven’t they?

Nice find Carl, me and my buddies wore that Stray Dog album out back in the day. First band I was ever in had “Tramp” in our set list! As budding musicians we were huge fans of all the bluesy hard rock power trio Stuff happening at the time- Stray Dog, ZZ Top, Captain Beyond, Tin House, Diamond REO, the list goes on... Btw, down in Terry’s “Top 3” thread below I mentioned Kings Of Du

In both cases the Stray Dog’s S/T 1973 album version was the cover: “Chevrolet“ was written by Billy Gibbons and appeared on ZZ Top’s 1972 album Rio Grande Mud. “Crazy” was a cover of Bloodrock’s “Crazy Bout You Babe” from their 1971 album Bloodrock U.S.A.

1. Kansas- The Absence Of Presence: My leading candidate for album of the year. Absolutely astounding that at this point in their career they've come up with a masterpiece that rivals any album in their catalog. Familiar ties to earlier proggy Kansas, but with modern elements as well. Stellar songwriting, lush layered production, and brilliant performances by everyone. A full listening experi

Great thread! So many here that I have in my collection, sad that some are still unreleased on CD (cool to see something like “Striker- S/T 1978” mentioned). Surprised these oldies haven’t been called out yet: Tin House- S/T 1971 Ursa Major- S/T 1972 Masters Of The Airwaves- S/T 1974 Armageddon- S/T 1975 Marcus- S/T 1976 Money- First Investment 1979 Revolver- First Shot 1981 V

Carl, agree 100% with your observations about Journey, and for the most part everything else you said- although there are a few artists who have crossed lines that make it impossible for me to listen to their music without thinking about what total assholes they are (Nugent for example). Terry, I’m surprised at your pre-negativity for something that you haven’t even heard yet? I’m happy

Arnel does fine in the studio, and frankly that’s the only thing I care about at this point (I’ve seen Journey play the dirty dozen more than enough times live). Every vocalist they’ve ever had struggled live eventually, especially Augeri- and I don’t recall anyone calling him “lazy” because of it.

“Where Did I Lose Your Love” is a great track- and I think it’s a fair representation of the path I’d expect the new material to follow, given the line-up changes.
