Verity - Rescue Me


Recommended Posts

Found this fucker on Itunes today, my uncle gave me this tape when I was like in 1st grade, it was the worst quality, it was a fucking trip hearing it all remastered. they did a monster job on the remaster, for that havent heard this, I dont know much about John Verity, except for I could never find this on disc, it's just early 80s kick ass hard rock! here is the title track.

Besides Argent he was in Charlie for a while too. I used to live just up the road from John until I moved and used to go to some of his local gigs. Really nice bloke and I managed to get the 'Rescue Me' disc from him. Really good album

Thanks everyone, didnt know he was in Argent, Jez somehow I kind of had a feeling you would show up on this one, and I was right, anyone who likes this disc, really needs to check out the remastered version on Itunes, just listen to the video I put up, that is the Rescue Me off Itunes, then put it up agains the cassette version, how does it fare compared to the cd version Jez? I never got to hear that cd version, let me know please.

Just another day, is one of my favorite jams off the album, I had NO! Idea it was a single, with a video and everything, was this a more well known release then I had figured? I have never met anyone who has heard of it until you guys, was this like on of those releases that was bigger in Europe and Australia then it was in the states and Canada? or what? I was very young when it was released, and like I said, my uncle gave me the tape, but I don't remember ever hearing a thing about it.

It wasn't a big release over here. It got a few favourable reviews in some of the rock mags, but wasn't a big seller as far as I know. A real shame, as it was as good as some other releases around at the time that 'made it'

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.
