Original Album Series

Recommended Posts

This series seems to be expanding. The one release in particular that caught my attention was the Ratt set. I remember it being listed as remastered (Blabbermouth, I think) but other reviews say they sound the same as previous issued cds. Wanted to check with the board and let you guys sound off.

 

Like I said, the Ratt box is my main concern but speak up on any other bands from the series as well. All opinions are appreciated.

Hmmm, so they all will contain 5 cd's from the artists or does it vary?

 

Good to see more of this stuff being done though. It shows there is some demand for our favorite music.

I think it may vary but the vast majority seems to be 5 (Alice Cooper, Foreigner, Montrose, Pantera, etc.).

Yeah I've noticed quite a few of these popping up. I nearly picked up the Static X series today - 5 Static X albums, simply because I know nothing about the band and thought it would be a cheap way to check them out and see if I like them.

Some of these are really good if you want to pick up a bands back catalogue cheaply (and in some cases with me, being a completist idiot I am). It will depend if you iike cardboad LP sleeve type releases, but to my eyes these are a really good way to go. There is also a series called Original Album Classics which are similarly presented and worth checking too. Some are remasters, usually the present ones avaliable as in the Cheap Trick ones, some are not and usually 5 discs, occasionally some are 3.. I recently got Ratt and Blackfoot and they definitely sound louder to my ears, so they may have been tweaked a little.

 

Others in both series I have purchased and recommend

 

Blackfoot

The Cars

Cheap Trick (x2)

Earth, Wind & Fire (x2)

ELO

The Jeff Healey Band

Loudness

Montrose

Mott The Hoople/ Mott

Ted Nugent

Pretenders

Ratt

Santana (x2)

Sisters Of Mercy

Came across in this series a Black Oak Arkansas one.

 

There are plenty in this series. Interesting mix as well. Some of the albums (CDs) are out of print in any single format which adds to the value (Blackfoot- Verticle Smiles). Have not purchased any yet, just getting feedback.

That would be a good thing. Avoid almost anything that's been remastered. Unless you're getting something from an audiophile label like Mobile Fidelity, this is the treatment they get:

Stick to the originals. If you want it louder, just turn up the volume.

Sage advice. I'm starting to believe that more and more.

Recently I saw Europe in a "Metal Case Series"....or at least that is what I thought it said. I tried Google for it but didn't see much so I must have the name wrong. Maybe I need to stop back there and take a look.

I'm strange. I'll buy the best 3 albums usually in a row from a band. For me it seems that's where the best music is.

 

These Original Album Series look pretty cool. The Ratt one has the first 5 CDs in it. Foreigner and The Cars also have the 1st Five CDs in them. Some of them skip some albums though, but there are some rare ones included.

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4. Ex Machina (featuring Jesper and Jacob Binzer of D-A-D)  3:40 5. Pay My Rent  4:25 6. Dirty Earth (featuring Tony Harnell)  4:16 7. Take Me To The River  2:47 8. This Means War  4:36 9.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
