Easily the hardest yet:

 

Little Caesar - Little Caesar ; I actually ended up selling both these CDs and was not a fan, but debut was definitely the better disc.

 

Lynch Mob - Wicked Sensation ; super hard one, but I went with the debut for a couple more real stunning tracks.

 

Southgang - Tainted Angel ; another hard one. 'Group Therapy' is HEAPS more consistent, but the best songs on the debut just can't be ignored, so I went with the debut.

 

Tora Tora - Surprise Attack ; not as big a fan of this band as most, but I do prefer the debut for sure.

 

Love/Hate - Blackout In The Red Room ; easy choice. Cool disc, the second was a little bland.

 

Sleeze Beez - Powertool ; almost impossible to choose but I went with the 2nd one for the same reason as a few above, the best songs on it are just a bit better than the best on the debut. Both are amazing though.

Al of these are close for me.

 

Little Ceaser-I voted for the 2nd one since it's the only one I've heard although I've always wanted the debut but have never heard it.

 

Lynch Mob-Wow this one is so hard but I voted for the self-titled disc due to Mason's involvement but damn I love the debut as well.

 

Southgang-I voted for Group Therapy but Tainted Angel is excellent as well.

 

Tora Tora-Suprise Attack always gets my vote but again the follow up was great too.

 

Love/Hate-Blackout in the Red Room but love Wasted in America is great.

 

Sleze Beez-Powertool got my vote but SB&T is awesome too.

The debuts swept this one, until the very end...

 

1. Not a Little Caesar fan (unless we're talking about pizza), but when forced to listen to them, prefer the debut over "Under the Influence."

 

2. Lynch Mob. "Wicked Sensation" over self-titled. 'Nuff said.

 

3. Love me some Southgang. Two great albums, but the better songs are on "Tainted Angel," so they get the edge over "Group Therapy." Both are justifiable choices, however.

 

4. Yet another band that does about as much for me an an enema witha porcupine, but I rate "Surprise Attack" ahead of "Wild America."

 

5. When it comes to Love/Hate, ya gotta go with "Blackout in the Red Room."

 

6. Here's where the sophomores finally garnered a vote, as "Powertool" is lightyears better than the debut. For comparison, if "Screwed, Blued & Tattooed" is Geoff's microscopic gnat of a dick, then "Powertool" is John Holme's legendary mammoth member.

No one else likes the Lynch Mob s/t ? I actually prefer it.

I LOVE it... the just love the debut a little more. Both are sensational, though.

Wrong.

 

I should actually be taking this up with Rob, but you're far more evil than him so I'll take it out on you... Sleez Beez's debut is 'Look Like Hell'. Porcupine f*cker.

Wasn't that one so bad that it shouldn't count?

 

Seriously though until I came to this site I wasn't even aware that they had a disc before SB&T with a different vocalist since it didn't come out on a major label and it wasn't released in the US.

Yeah, if I were them I wouldn't claim it either ...

Yes, it is so bad every copy released should be burnt in a communal bonfire. :)

 

Took me a long time to realise there was a disc before 'Screwed Blued & Tattooed' too. It's the kind of disc that I can't see anyone in the band being proud to admit they recorded.

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • 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!
