As you may know, there's two versions now of GREAT WHITE, the US bluesy hard rock band. This one featuring the very talented vocalist Terry Ilous are releasing a new album entitled "Saturday Night Special" through the Collectors Dream Records label.

 

This 15 track features remixes / re-recordings of 3 Great White's most famous own songs, plus a selection of melodic hard rock hits done with the band's personal touch

"Saturday Night Special" is a nice present if you like cover albums.

 

The band has done some excellent renditions of Journey's classic "Any Way You Want It", Aerosmith's "Same Old Song And Dance" and Survivor's "Eye Of The Tiger".

 

These are my favorites, but all are interesting and really well done like "Kickstart My Heart" of Motley Crue, or the fabulous take on "Diamonds & Rust", popularized by Joan Baez.

 

The new re-workings on "Once Bitten, Twice Shy", "Rock Me Save" and especially "Your Love" are great too.

If truly well done covers is your thing, you can't miss "Saturday Night Special Ready For Rock 'N' Roll Part II".

 

Ranging from bluesy hard rockers to AOR classics from the last three-four decades of music, this is a great album of versions to enjoy.

Very Recommended.

Um... saw that "Blue Christmas," which actually is one of the few Christmas songs I like, and thought, "Yeah, no." Why throw that on there? It changes the whole vibe. Not that covers albums often have a focused vibe to begin with.

No Jack Russell, its not Great White.

Plus must be a proper shitty record label if they cant even spell Lynyrd Skynyrd.

:rofl2: I didn't even notice that.

 

Seriously, tho, who the hell is "Collectors Dream Music?" I guess its official, they have now recorded for pretty much every damn label there is. Not for nothin' but if even Frontiers and Deadline Music are passing on you, it might be time to re-examine your priorities.

Looking at the track listing on the first album posted and the fact the second one posted was recorded in 1989, I gotta wonder if that first album does in fact include the current line up without Russell.

Only reason I say this is at least two tracks from that first album (Kickstart my heart and Unchained) were both recorded for tribute albums by Jack Russell over the years, and it may be a case of this being one of those compilation tribute albums which arent necessarily even the full band on most of the tracks.

This is Jack Russell and it's fucking horrid. I couldn't even make it through it. His voice is still there and an original songs album would be interesting. This is so bad though...

    • 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!
