JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE To Release 'Once Bitten Acoustic Bytes' In May

JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE To Release 'Once Bitten Acoustic Bytes' In May
 

Former GREAT WHITE and current JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE frontman Jack Russell will release a very special acoustic album revisiting GREAT WHITE's 1987 multi-platinum masterpiece "Once Bitten" featuring some of their biggest and most recognizable hits, including "Save Your Love" and "Rock Me". Aided by the likes of guitarist Robby Lochner (who also produced and mixed the album), longtime GREAT WHITE bassist Tony Montana (now on guitar), bassist Dan McNay and drummer Dicki Fliszer, these songs have been stripped to their emotional core, spotlighting the intensely passionate story at the heart of each song. Just check out the new version of the unforgettable ballad "Save Your Love", which has been shorn of all rockstar pomp to reveal a heartfelt hymn yearning, love and loss. Or just watch the new video, directed by Vicente Cordero of Industrialism Films (QUEENSRŸCHE, TOM KEIFER), which communicates the song's message powerfully.

Russell explains: "'Once Bitten' is one of my favorite albums that we did. I always wondered what it would sound like done acoustically. The experience recording this unplugged version was really neat. It brought back a lot of memories of the original recording session, things I had forgotten about. Interestingly, the songs that I thought wouldn't translate acoustically like 'Livin' On The Edge' and 'Never Change Heart', the heavier songs, came out the best. Now, I'm looking forward to doing it again for '…Twice Shy'."

"Once Bitten Acoustic Bytes" will be available everywhere starting May 1 on digital as well as CD and a limited-edition blue vinyl LP from Deadline Music, a division of Cleopatra Records, Inc.

Track listing:

01. Lady Redlight
02. Gonna Getcha
03. Rock Me
04. All Over Now
05. Mistreater
06. Never Change Heart
07. Fast Road
08. Livin' On The Edge
09. Save Your Love
10. Babe (I'm Gonna Leave You)

JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE's debut LP, "He Saw It Comin'", was released in January 2017 and featured the singles "Blame It On The Night", "Sign Of The Times" and "Love Don't Live Here".

Russell was fired from GREAT WHITE in December 2011 (after being on hiatus from the group since 2009). He sued his onetime bandmates the following year over their continued use of the GREAT WHITE name after Jack had taken a leave of absence from the band for medical reasons. A short time later, Russell was countersued by Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Audie Desbrow, claiming the vocalist's self-destructive behavior was damaging the GREAT WHITE name (they also alleged he was charging promoters less for his own touring version of GREAT WHITE). The parties settled in July 2013 without going to trial, with Russell now performing as JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE while the others are continuing as GREAT WHITE.

Could actually be alright. The dude can still sing. And these are already good songs. Not like he's trying to write new music.

Not a big fan of all acoustic albums nor of artists rerecording their material because it's so hard to recapture the sound and feel of a great release.  But they did a solid job with this track.  It was always one of my favorite ballads though and Jack still sounds pretty good.

So is this the "real' Great White or is the other Great White the "real" Great White?

Didn't the "real" Great White fire Terry Ilous? Are they even a thing anymore? 

Jack Russell is the voice, so I could see why he might be considered the "real" Great White.

Well they have Mitch malloy singing now.
Remember hearing him sing some old WG songs and they sounded great
Elation shits all over Rising, and Jack's solo also shits all over Rising.
So I always saw the split as beneficial for both the band and Jack, because if Rising is any indication, as a band they were dead in the water.

Rising was horrible. Not a single redeeming quality!

No point to do this rather than a desperate effort to cash in on the old hits

Jack sounds great. I sure wish he could write good songs again.

I'm one of the minority who like Jack-less GW and Jack solo stuff as well.
Not much interest in Jack covering GW acoustically though...

    • Guns n' Roses - Don't Cry (Alternate Lyrics). When the "Illusion" albums came out, I could only afford one. "Illusion II" was the better album and "You Could Be Mine" plus "Civil War" sealed the deal. That meant that I was/am far more familiar with and prefer the alternate version of "Don't Cry".  The lines "And when you're in need of someone, my heart won't deny you So many seem so lonely with no one left to cry to, baby" get me everytime I hear it.      
    • Agree.  For my tastes its not been a great year but this one definitely is a stand out.
    • Absolutely a top 10 album!
    • Just when I thought Confess were going to take it clean, I go and hear this song, it embodies everything I love about this kind of music, perfect riffs, completely awesome singer who I put up there with Darren Rogers and Terry Brock, fucking bad ass song, guess I'll see if i like it more then Confess???  
    • Oh I can show you a bunch of different shit from all sorts of various websites, so where in your example is the proof any of these are lies? just cause some nutjob website says so? good try though.
    • What I cant change my mind? is that what you mean? I liked OAN, I also use to watch CNN, so that means I have to stand by that forever? lets talk about a small problem with truth, how about your entire party? I quit watching CNN because their entire line up is smeared with idiot left wing liberal journalists, who absolutely make up news, if I gave you an example i'd have to just post the live link to it, I should post the clips I can find where they report the actual story as is, but I dont have access to the archives, Id have to go back to like 84 and shit, no what I mean, you aint getting me on any of this shit, when I discovered OAN I thought wow a news channel that tells it like it is, and they have a hot ass anchor, not as hot as as Robin on Headline News, but pretty close, I like any news you can watch on mute and jerk off to at the same time, thats rare these days.
    • Edens Of The Earth - Breathless
    • I think this sits inside my Top 10
    • I had a ten album playlist from 2020 running last weekend and this album was included. I'll admit that I haven't played this much but each song that come up really stood out. very strong release for 2020
