Def Leppard - Hysteria 2013

Recommended Posts

I didn't know this until now and this is almost 7 years old.

From a comment on Youtube:

If you don't know why they re-recorded it, the real story is that Universal (their former record company) refused to pay the band a fair amount for digital downloads (8 cents per download), so the band had their lawyer take all the original recordings (including their less popular albums) out of the downloading market. They re-recorded their hits because Bludgeon Riffola is a full-fledged record company, and by releasing the newer versions, they were able to make more than 70% of the revenue and stick the finger at Universal. I know many people were disappointed that they re-released Slang out of all albums. This is because the band now owns the catalogs of the album, so they released the deluxe edition instead of Universal. Because of this, I really don't see anymore re-releases in a while (even for the newer albums). Now, they are no longer with Universal, and they're pretty much on their own now. This band has truly taught me about how cruel the music industry can be.

A bit factually incorrect in that post.

For starters, Hysteria was re-released again in what, 2017 as a three disc set with two live discs, and was released by Phonogram, which is part of Universal music.

Bludgeon Riffola is their own label, yes, but they still use other record labels for distribution. The self titled album from memory was through Ear music (or whatever the labels name is).

Self title was release their own label.

Ear Music has a lot of Bands on their roster, e.g. Europe, Alice Cooper and Thunder.

I'm a bit confused. Was this a studio recording, or just a live recording? I can't find anything on a studio re-recording of Hysteria.

Nope. Got my CD sitting in front of me and it clearly has Ear Music as the record label. All their albums are released through Bludgeon, but Bludgeon does not have its own distribution so has to partner with a proper label for that. From what I can tell its Ear Music in Europe, Mailboat in USA and a couple of other labels in other countries.

Hell, even the entry on this site has the code on the spine as being Mailboats code.

 

 

Check the release data on Discogs.

They re-recorded several tracks back then, not a whole album. I am sure there was even a topic on this back when they did it.

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
