One of my favorite bands but unfortunately I have had all these songs for years. Lots of good songs on there but I would have made a few changes with other songs that were left off.

Agreed. I'm just wondering if the production/mix is different than the later versions of these songs.

The one song that is already available sounds the same to me.

As mentioned I have the (copies anyways) of XXX and Joker and I have Tried and True as well.


That said if they would have doubled down, made a 2 disc with both those albums in one silvery pressed place I would have bought it and probably still will if I come across this one on the cheap...

    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

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.

    • 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:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
  • Create New...
