A question about what is and is not allowed on the site.

Recommended Posts

I have recently seen a few entries on this site that were never officially released on CD, and were only ever bootlegs, and thought that was against the rules.

And today I have seen that a DVD has been entered into the database, so are DVD's/Blu Ray's now allowed on the site as well?

List the ones you think shouldn't be here, and Mike or I will take a look.

Regarding DVD/Blu-Ray releases, this is a tough one, as there are a lot of live performances now that are released as one or more of the following:

1. CD + DVD in one package

2. CD + Blu-Ray in one package

3. Separate CD and Blu-Ray releases of the same performance(s).

For example, Fair Warning - Two Nights to Remember that came out earlier this year is available as a 2-DVD package, a 2-Blu-Ray package, and a 4-CD package.

I think that if it is released on CD as part of any of these packages, it's worth including on the site.

The Steel Panter - British invasion that has just gone up on the site does not include a CD to my knowledge. I have only ever seen it on 2 DVD or single Blu ray.


The bootlegs or wrong entries that I have seen are:

Wrathchild - Trash queens (only ever available on vinyl or bootleg CD)

LA Guns - Collectors edition No 1 (only ever available on vinyl or as a bonus CD with the Hollywood Raw album)

Rankelson - Both albums (both never available on CD, but will be released next year probably as a double album)


That's just the ones I have spotted.

Oh, and not 100% convinced about the first two London albums.

The debut was certainly never issued on CD by Shrapnel as the entry says, and the only releases I can find any info on are Timewarp which is most defo a bootleg, an unoffficial Russian pressing which claims to be Shrapnel and one by a label called "Vamps Worldwide" which I am struggling to find out if they are genuine or not as they seem to have only ever released albums by London over a 5 year period.


Don't Cry Wolf was apparentl issued by Retrospect but most sites say that was an unofficial release, and I don't wanna go down that rabbit hole of whether Retrospect was genuine or not with all their releases. That topic has been done to death.

    • Those first 4 songs are probably the best 4 in a row to start an album of 2020. Too bad it grinds to a halt in the middle. Also agree the last track is awesome.
    • I might be in the minority, but as good as the Defiant's albums are I enjoyed the TMF debut more than either of those. That said, I prefer their debut to this one too.  But overall it's pretty even between the two projects, for me anyway.  As far as individual tracks on Lions, one of the things that appeals to me is the fact that they changed up the style on some tracks this time.  Third time through and I find myself listening more to the songs on the second half of the album rather than the singles.

    • I don't think he does care.  all he really cares about is getting re-elected.  he just wants markets open, schools open , retail open - that's his bottom line. The continuing spread of the virus is defended by claiming it's enhanced testing which is basically rubbish. I hope for all your sakes that the death rate doesn't spike again. But it's up isn't it. let's just hope it doesn't get worse. 
    • Totally agree The first 4 tracks are great...Lions is dreadfully boring. Decadence On 10th Street reminds me of Extreme for some reason...it’s ok. Sedona is another snoozer. The tracks around those are good...the closer Winner Takes It All is excellent.    The Defiants have taken the clear lead now after 2 full releases for each band. 
    • Glen, you started so well... but then you just couldn't help yourself and veered off into TDS land.  "trump doesn't care about people's safety or the spread of this virus." Seriously? Do you HONESTLY believe this? We don't know all of the factors being weighed to arrive at a particular decision. It's possible to simply disagree with a decision without going off the deep end and resorting to "OMFG! EVIL ORANGE MAN WANTS TO KILL YOUR BABIEZ! REEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"
    • this ^^^^ Also the small fact that it's not safe to reopen to ALL pupils. In fact it's nigh on impossible. but trump doesn't care about people's safety or the spread of this virus.
    • OK, listened to this album a few times now and I think I prefer the songs on the debut, but the production of this one. Is that fair? I agree with those who say Lions loses some momentum halfway through.
    • Do you have it set so no duplicates can be added--can that be set?--because it's gonna be difficult to keep track of what's already in the playlist.
