Any details? I saw they reissued mega rarities like Robert Tepper´s "No Easy Way Out" and Fahrenheit´s "Talking ´Bout Love"?

These are definitely Bootlegs-you surely remember all this Swedish guy who sold the Stage Dolls-Commandos

on EBAY and told that he found a rest stock.In similar way suddenly lots of copies from Kuni-Masque were offered to Swedish dealers-and these Dealers now also offer the Robert Tepper.Okay,Sweden is part of European community and maybe it is more possible to accuse here people who produce Bootlegs-but this is

the business of the Major Labels and their interest seems only in checking the charts than prosecuting that

illegal re-issues.More horrible is the US Situation where you can found Labels FULL with such stuff and nobody

prevents this-is there no authority at all????

Does anyone have any actual confirmation (i.e. proof) that these are bootlegs. I've seen this one and some other stuff on Rock-It Records that I'm interested in:

 

Brian McDonald Group - Desperate Business

Illusion - S/T

Illusion - I Like It Loud

Shogun - 31 Days

 

There are a few others (that I can't recall right now). I don't mind having a few boots, but I don't want to drop a buttload of cash for one. Any help would be most appreciated.

All the Rock-It titles are boots. The Brian Macdonald was re-issued on the excellent Sony Rewind label and is the official release, the other is a boot. Would be very careful with the Robert Tepper, although it is being advertised as being on the Scotti Bros. label which is the correct one, so without seeing it couldn't confirm. The 2 Illusion dics to my knowledge have never been released on CD, so you decide their authenticity.

I am certain one of the Illusion CDs recieved an official CD pressing.

If not, perhaps the people in reissues should look into releasing both Illusion albums on CD :)

I can't tell from the lone picture, but the disclaimer in the auction wording combined with the reluctance to send you a picture of the disc itself just screams out CD-R.

Ok i had to bite on this one......I bought a copy of the Robert Tepper, and yes it is definately a bootleg......the sound quality is not the greatest but not the worst, has some pops and hisses if you listen closely.....Also the artwork is not centered on the booklet, the printing on the cd itself is out of line as bad if not as worse as the Stage Dolls fiasco....It is silverpressed, which did shock me, but i only paid $10 for it.......Hell even the Rock It Records insignia is not straight.....hahaha......If you want it for just listening purposes it is cool, but if you are collecting steer clear....

 

Later

THANKS LONNIE FOR THE INFO....

I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE SELLER IS NOT VERY HONEST BECAUSE HE DON'T ANSWER TO MAILS OR MESSAGES AND NOT SHOWS THE PHOTO OF THE CD.

I'M SURPRISED ON THE GOOD FEEDBACK HE RECEIVED

 

-_-<_<-_-

 

 

WELL TAKE A LOOK:

    • That’s not bad at all. I’d love to get an AOR Freaky reaction to this, as it kinda makes me think of the Nu Breed style that started taking off around ‘03 that we know he loved so much! 😂
    • If you liked that one, I think you'll find this one to be pretty cool. It's not satirical though:  
    • Looking at the song titles, this is 100% what I expected. Not into it at all - quite dislike it, to be honest. And the song titles do nothing to fill me with confidence that any of the other songs will be any better.  Anyway, this is a real surprise. I thought he was far removed from the music scene and his voice was allegedly not up to ever returning to Autograph (as I assume, music, generally speaking?) 
    • agree with the comments on that first track, was expecting a little more from Steve, maybe something similar to the songs on Buzz, still looking forward to hearing the rest of the album though
    • Germany based label label Pride & Joy Music will continue the Pride & Joy Music Classixx series on June 14th, 2024 with the release of the following 2 classic albums: The LA Cowboys - Endless Summer (Westcoast) Captain Black Beard - Sonic Forces +2 (Melodic Rock) As usual, these titles are only available via shop.prideandjoy.de and direct wholesale via Pride & Joy Music. Both are ltd. editions with 300 copies only each. Due to a high amount of pre-orders, the classic The LA Cowboys album already is almost sold out.   https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16355-the-la-cowboys-endless-summer-cd.html https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16354-captain-black-beard-sonic-forces-cd.html The bonus tracks on the Captain Blackbeard reissue are: 11. All The Pain (Bonus Track – 2022 re-recording) 12. Headlights (Instrumental Synthwave Remix)
    • But in all honesty, I hope music fans can eventually use AI to digitally remaster demo recordings with shitty audio quality
    • Ah, fukkit, what do I care? You're my people so I'll post a link to one I/we (AI and me, lol) just did now.  You're not telling me anything I don't know about how cringe the lyrics are, but in my defence this was written on 25th of July, 2001. Yes, even my youthful self shouldn't have been such a maggot, but I don't care too much. A slice of history, I guess you could say. Anyway, you can see in this what I mean about awkward phrasing and melodies not how the writer intended, but you also may get a sense that the result can still be pretty fun and appealing, perhaps, if you penned your own lyrics.  Another thing I'll say is that the almost violin/cello/accordion-sounding guitar riff seems to keep popping up in 90% of the songs I do with this or similar prompts, and I don't understand how/why that is associated with melodic rock. But it's there, constantly. Guess AI only has so many ideas so far?  I don't like that it has the prompts (which you can see have been somewhat ignored, I guess?) and the lyrics on display, but here's an example of what I'm droning on about, for reference; https://suno.com/song/0b797863-cd90-40b6-94da-5abe78ff98ca  
    • I just shared the following song in AOR Song of the Day, but I figure I'll also create a separate thread since I can't find any information about this band—not even a Discogs page! If anybody has any info to share about them, that'll be awesome!
