Holy f*ckballs. $13.99 plus postage won't work for me, but I'd love to hear this. I had no idea there was such a recording.

Your wish is my command. ;)

 

I just emailed them and received the following:

 

Hi Dan,

 

...

 

 

The CD's are sliver replicated, the DVD on Alleycat's Encore is a DVR.

 

...

 

Thanks again,

I have the encore cd and it is a cdr, I am pretty sure silver replicated means cdr.

 

great minds think alike. So do skeptical ones!

I have the 4cd comilation set and they are cdrs, although 'very silver' looking cdrs.

 

I'll most likely still order some more stuff from them when the aussie dollar shapes up.

In industry lingo, "duplicated" means burned CD-R, and "replicated" means pressed from a glass master. If a label is using the terms otherwise, they're wrong.

 

I'll soon find out as I bought a few of the releases.

Slightly off topic but didn't their drummer join the band Revolution Hazy at one time?

 

I mention them from time to time on these boards as really liked their album and keep hoping for a re-release with added hanky panky tracks too.

 

The demos of hanky panky I really like the ballad "Used to be you" the singers voice is haunting on that track.

Sometimes the demo quality gives songs a really great atmosphere, especially that ballad.

 

Ermm just like Tres Chics "memory lane" another band lost in the shuffle, they need to put their other tracks (better ones imo) on the myspace page, rant over :banana:

I doubt that it's the real 'silver' CD. Same old story that was with the Alleycat Scratch's Encore release and reissue of Banshee CDs. Many people and musicians don't know a difference between a silver CD and CD-r or pretend that don't know it coz wanna get some money.

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
