I asked this question on another forum, but didn't get much help. I own the newer version of the Wazbonez album that came bundled with Thrill Pistol. Besides the tracks that were left off the new release, are there any other differences in the songs that are on both albums or are they exactly the same? Also, are the missing tracks such as "Perish", "Pigface" and "Future Is A Drug" worth tracking down the original U.K. release for? I'd really appreciate any advice here.

Ok, firstly, there is no US version.

The version that came with Thrill Pistol is available on the UK release as well.

 

I spoke to the band about this some time ago, when I was contemplating picking up the Jap release, and they said it was not worth it, as most of the songs would be on the disc released with Thrill pistol.

 

The UK version is re-recorded though, and personally sounds better than the Jap/Thrill pistol version, and there is a slightly different track listing.

 

If you can find it cheap, its worth picking up, but unless you are a die hard fan, the Thrill Pistol version should suffice! (I bought my copy when it was released, so I was quite lucky on that).

 

The only version I would say thats totall worth passing over, is the original Japanese release (it was released under the band name Wazbones rather than Tigertailz).

I love the album but would disagree with you on this. I found the Japan version to sound better and it has 15 tracks. I would stick with that but that's just my opinion :)

As the Capt. said, there is no US version - people hear that they recorded the album in California and that their mgmt at the time was called "Amuse America" (Japanese company) and they assume there is one, I guess. Amuse was going to release it in the States through their own Domo / EMI Records but that didn't wind up working out (I warned 'em!!). The California version was released through PolyGram in Japan, features Jay Pepper and has a slightly altered track listing than the UK version, which was re-recorded in Wales with a guitarist named Cy Danaher and released through a small company in Britain called Minority One. If I remember correctly, I prefered the version with Jay on it as I love the way he plays.

I've only heard the Jap version thanks to you, and I love it. :banger:

Thanks for clearing up the mess about a US version folks. I just have one more question if you don't mind. The Thrill Pistol booklet says something about the Wazbonez album being released in '92, but I've heard some say it was originally recorded in '95. What's the deal? When was the dang thing originally released?

Might have been recorded in 1992 but was released in 1995.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19. Review by Thomas McFapperson 2024.        
    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
