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.

    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-  
    • Can't you see that you're lost without him?      
    • If somebody could stop covid for me, that would be great.
    • Yeah, def HammerFall vibes in the chorus. And, yeah, they kinda seemed outta place. I don't necessarily love the song. It was okay. Hopefully there are better tracks on the album, otherwise, to quote Gleonard, "Utter waste." ;}
    • The band press release says they've changed their name to Rain City. The article says they've changed their name to Rain City. But it's actually Rain City Drive. Really seems like everyone was on board. ;}
    • That HammerFall-ish gang vocal chant thing in the chorus seems a bit out of place to me. Otherwise, sounds decent enough.
