Hurricane: Over the edge - Greek bootleg?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

What a mess it has been with all the strange Hurricane re-issue. I hope you all get your money back.

 

But I have another issue about a Japaneese version of the Over the edge album.

 

I got this album in a trade from a Greek lad. I think it is a Bootleg of the original japaneese version. It is a quite good one but a bootleg.

 

Does anyone know if a bootleg like this is floating around.

 

All the text and everything on the disc look authentic but my disc says Over the edge on the inner ring. Regular releases usually don't have this type of marking on the disc. And what I have seen from auction on the web this is not there. The text and pictures on the booklet are quite blurry as well.

 

I really need to find out if this is a fake since a traded a quite good cd for this one.

 

Take care

Ali

It is a Greek bootleg yes.

 

Do a back-serch in this section of the forum and you will find a thread with huge list of all current Greek bootlegs I've posted sometime ago. Hurricane, Banshee, Roko, Skagarack, Paganini, Force 3, Mesisah Force, Vanadium, and more, all duped.

 

P.S. Here it is http://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=11580

YES-it is a Bootleg and just also spread over Germany!

I'm not sure whether it is really from Greece,because much stuff from this mentioned list is also offered from

Italy and UK.

As far as I know there is also a PAGANINI-Weapon of love Bootleg available-the only thing I saw on first sight was that it looks brand new and this is mostly suspicious with 20 years old titles.

I knew I had seen that post in the past but could not find it this morning.

 

I will definately go after that trader.

Any update on your progress?

 

Yes. He told me that he didn't know it was a bootleg and he was an honest trader and all that. He Had a number of cd:s from Stormspell's list up for trade/sell on Melodicrock so I think he must have known that it was a bootleg.

 

I told him that I wanted the self-titled Eyes cd I saw in his list for compensation. He answered me that he thought this also was a bootleg but I could get it if wanted.

 

I gave him a couple of options. I told him to send back the cd I have traded to him and I would keep the Hurricane album as an compensation for the postage and the hazzle he had put me through. But he did not like that. In that case he wanted the HUrricane album back. I could not accept that

 

The Hurricane album is a good boot (good sound qulity and nice booklet) but the cd is a quite cheep disc. So I told him to send me the Eyes cd as well as a compensation. He accepted that and I hope that cd is coming soon. Could not be bothered to put more time into this matter maybe it was wrong but I really like that Hurricane album and wanted to keep it. I did not like the cd I traded at all.

 

Take acre

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
    • ▶︎ In Flight 1988 | > PHOENIXX < | Freddy Krumins (bandcamp.com) Phoenixx - In Flight CD. Heavy Harmonies Discography As best I can tell, this is a digital only release, which is a damn shame, as what I've listened to so far has been quite good!   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Seattle not only should be remembered for the grunge; there was an interesting hard rock scene there during the ’80s. One of these bands looking for recognition was PHOENIXX, a 6-piece rocking outfit including the classic twin guitar attack, cool keyboards / synths, and powerful singer with a clean voice. PHOENIXX played the club circuit and managed to professionally record an album only released locally on cassette and when they were ready to move to California, the group disbanded pursuing different interests. Now 2022 and PHOENIXX’s first and only album ”In Flight” from 1988 is finally reissued for all of us enjoyment, including 3 very well done demos previously unreleased. Musically this is a pretty awesome mix of ROUGH CUTT, DOKKEN, HURRICANE and some Americanized WHITESNAKE. There’s polished, elaborated songwriting, excellent vocals and very solid musicianship, while production and especially the mix, are second to none. Check the video below…
