Sony Extended Versions CD's

Recommended Posts

I've picked up a few of these, & they are suprisingly good. The Europe, Quiet Riot, & Cinderella are all live shows (or parts of live shows) that aren't repackaged versions of previous releases, which from what I've heard is the case with a lot of the other Extended Versions releases.

 

Does anybody have any info on the Britny Fox, Mr. Big, White Lion, Slaughter, & Krokus cd's from this series?

 

Also, another one worth picking up is the Damn Yankees...it's all the audio tracks from the Uprisinig Live video that was released on dvd a couple years ago.

I'll be picking up the Damn Yankees for sure. I'd like the Britny Fox & the others as long as the songs were recorded "back in the day", & not a couple years ago. That's whats cool about the Quiet Riot & Europe cd's. All those songs were recorded back in the 80's.

The only one I've bothered with was the Overkill "Extended Versions," which was merely a pared-down version of the 2-CD "WRECKING YOUR NECK live album from 1995 :hammer:

I had the Overkill one, it appears I don't anymore though. I also picked up the Cinderella one recently but have yet to give it a spin.

I've been trying to find the Damn Yankees & Britny Fox cd's, but no luck so far. Wal Mart carries a lot of the extended versions cd's & for only 5 bucks a pop. If anybody notices either of these 2, please send me a PM. Thanks

Yeah, but for 7 bucks a pop new...plus 6-7 bucks shipping. I'd prefer to find them locally for 5 bucks each. And a lot of the guys selling new/used ones are telling me they have cut-out markings, which I don't want.

Matt, You can pick up the Damn Yankees on Half.com for $4.42. Of course you will have the $2.99 shipping charge. I don't know if it has any cut-outs,markings etc. Three sellers have it for $4.53 or less. Hope I helped. :headbanger:

Bumpity-bump...

 

I generally don't take notice of these "Extended Versions" discs cuz I rarely have the patience to go rooting thru the "Discount" rack or dump bins at Walmart or Best Buy (which is where they're usually found) but I have acquired a couple of 'em recently on a whim (Megadeth and Anthrax, plus I bought a Quiet Riot one some time ago) and they're pretty cool, cheap pickups. I'm generally not a big collector of live albums but I'll gladly pay five bucks for a pared-down version of one rather than double-CD prices for the "full" album.

 

...on a whim I just skimmed thru a bunch of these on GoHastings.com and DAMN, used copies of most of'em are dirt cheap, less than three bucks for the ones I'm interested in, so I may be placing an order for a heap of these discs soon.

Two recent additions to my mini-collection of "Extended Versions" discs: Alice Cooper (audio taken from the TRASHES THE WORLD home video circa 1990) and Motorhead (tracks borrowed from the now out-of-print EVERYTHING LOUDER THAN EVERYONE ELSE 2-CD live album from 1999).

 

Both were used copies from GoHastings.com and even with shipping included, I think I spent less than five bucks for the pair. :beerbang:

Picked up Stryper's Extended Versions volume from GoHastings this past week. I'm told the tracks were lifted from the previously released 7 Weeks: Live In America album, but that's fine by me cuz I never bothered to pick that one up.

 

Added bonuses: My least favorite Stryper song, "Sing-Along Song," was the opening track on 7 Weeks but it didn't make the cut for the Extended Versions album (thank goodness, cuz I really REALLY hate that song!). The Extended Versions disc also has one song ("More than a Man") that wasn't on 7 Weeks.

 

So if you're a anal-compulsive Gotta-Catch-Em-All super completist for this band, I guess you gotta buy the Extended Versions disc even if you already have 7 Weeks just to have that one track.... :D

 

I also picked up a Dokken disc called Yesterday & Today, which seems to be part of a similar series of live-rehash compilation discs - half of the tracks were lifted from the One Live Night release (which I own) and the other half from the Live From The Sun disc (which I don't.) The Yesterday & Today discs (RateYourMusic also shows a Styx volume in this series) were also released by Sony/BMG, who are also the makers of the "E.V." series. Soooooo.... why this Dokken disc wasn't simply released as an Extended Versions is anybody's guess, I suppose.

I just ordered the Damn Yankees' "Extended Versions" disc from GoHastings, which inspired my latest HubPage blah-de-blah about collecting the series.

Two more Extended Versions discs have been added to my collection since I last posted (I guess I'm the only one who bothers with these things huh??) - Ted Nugent and Krokus.

 

The Krokus disc is pretty damn good, it was recorded at the Sweden Rock Festival in 2003.

    • 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'.

    • 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.

    • 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
