  1. https://metalplanetmusic.com/2020/07/fortune-the-guns-still-smokin-live-new-live-album-by-cult-us-melodic-aor-rock-act-out-07-08-20-via-frontiers/ They still sound great all these years later. I will purchase this one for certain.
  2. You're simply too young, Geoff. This stuff is brilliant!
  3. Ron's voice is still awesome and the ONLY one I associate with Lillian Axe. If only that debut album would have been released a couple years earlier... BIG difference between 1986 and 1988 for newcomers to the scene. 1984 and it would have been even better. By 1988, MTV was more into game shows than actual music videos. Our music (while still popular with those of us who grew-up with it) wasn't attracting the 14 year-olds any longer, and within 3 years, a darkness fell over the earth.
  4. It was from Terry. I don't think he trying to be scrupulous at all... he probably doesn't realize that some of us are collectors, and not just listeners. 90% of the people in the world probably care less... I'm one of the 10%'ers. BTW... the package is all very well done and nice... but lipstick on a pig..............
  5. Making mention of it on the sales page (in this case Ebay) would, if nothing else, be the right thing to do.
  6. The ones on ebay right now are the greenish / blue tinged back CD-R. No barcode. Not happy about this. It's not the money... not like I'm a millionaire, but I'd start a fire with a $20.00 bill and not stress it... it's just the feeling of being "ripped off."
  7. Perhaps I just don't know how to use the SEARCH function properly, so forgive me. Was this release always a CD-R (albeit with nice packaging)? I recently purchased this one, and that's exactly what it is. Very well done, but a CD-R none-the-less. As a collector (not just a listener), this bugs me a bit. I wouldn't have paid $25.00 for a CD-R. The songs are easily obtained elsewhere. I hate that practice and never do it, but I don't make a habit of buying CD-R's, either. Please let me know if anyone has any insight.
  8. I don't think it's really underrated, missed or forgotten in music history, but perhaps not fully appreciated by many of us 80's hard rock fans... at least not by the rockers I grew-up with who didn't think there was life outside of Iron Maiden... Duane Allman and Eric Clapton on LAYLA... I've never heard guitars tell such a painful story anywhere else. It's like Hemingway reading The Old Man and the Sea to you in-person.
  9. Tramp is another artist I was a HUGE fan of back in 1987, but lost interest after BIG GAME. I just don't like his "new" music at all.
  10. This is another song whereby you really needed to be a teenager the summer of 1987 (when the song was in constant radio rotation) to fully appreciate it. I was. I was 19 the summer of 1987, and looking back, CARRIE was damn-near perfect for its time and place. The only way for me to fully describe this type of TIME / PLACE experience is by looking back 25 years (25 years from 1987 in this case). I don't know how LOVE ME DO by The Beatles was so damn popular and set them on their way. Talk about cheesy! And I'm actually a Beatles fan (now). But back in 1987, I'd have turned that song off quickly!
  11. I wish this one had been released on PolyGram Records in late 1986 (like Slippery) or mid 1987 (like Hysteria). Put them on tour with either of those bands on either of those tours and we would NOT be talking about Blue Tears in a "FORGOTTEN ALBUMS" thread... we'd be talking about this band and their debut album as one of the all-time greats of the genre.
  12. I'm not normally of a fan of re-recordings, but they did a nice job here. Certainly NOT something I'd reach-for in favor of the original, but not something I'd turn off if I heard it playing, either.
  13. One of my favorite AOR / Melodic Rock albums of all-time.
  14. The original is great. I don't like the new version at all.
  15. I wanted so badly to like JUICY FRUIT LUCY (for the cover if nothing else), but I never dug it at all... That said, FLY AWAY HONEY is actually quite enjoyable.
  16. Just listened to this one straight through... I LOVE IT! So very 1984 (hard to describe if you weren't actually listening to this style of music as a teen in 1984). Yes, Geoff, a LOT of early Motley Crue vibe. RATT demo as well... VERY Ratt-like! Damn I miss my high school days!
  17. This will be a sure buy for me. Their debut was brilliant. Follow-up was very good.
  18. I purchased this one. Very BLACK N' BLUE esqe musically.
  19. Mine are all old-school (Old's Kool) from my grade school days through my teens. These are the bands that far and away I played the most and or had the most influence. Difficult to narrow it down to four. This is chronological for me. KISS SCORPIONS DEF LEPPARD BON JOVI Edit... I really need to get Motley Crue in there. KISS was so influential to me from 1978 - 1984... but Motley took things to a new level. Man, I need that 5th. band!
  20. Awesome new song. Very "Raised On Radio" type of tune.
  21. So incredibly sad. I'd like to send flowers... does anyone have the address of the funeral home?
  22. The cover (sucks). BJ version should have been on Slippery! Would have been top 4 on that album. Always loved it.
  23. Edge of a Broken Heart is terrible.
