I came across a CDR that I didn't even know I had. Was this ever officially released?

Here's the tracklist:

01 – Pretty Lies
02 – Love Can’t Find You
03 – Who Is This Talking
04 – Love Burns
05 – Get You Back In My Life
06 – Inner City Refugees

09 – Revenge
10 – Full Circle

I think I've heard a few of, or most the Bad English songs, but are they actually songs planned for a third album, or are they just demos from the first two albums?

To me it always sounded much more like the latter.

There's some great tunes, but the sound quality is pretty enjoyment-sapping. Always loved 'Who is this talking' but it almost sounds like pre-Bad English era Jon Waite as opposed to something they were planning to release in 1993.

From wikipedia, so take it with a grain of salt-

The band's second album, Backlash (1991), came and went without any fanfare. The only single, "Straight to Your Heart," missed the Top 40, peaking at No. 42. Ricky Phillips writes on his website that the group had parted company before the second album had been mixed. Both Phillips and guitarist Neal Schon expressed frustration with the "pop" side of the band's songs and wanted a harder edge. In the end, it proved to be the band's undoing as everyone left to pursue other projects.

With that in mind it is impossible to assume there was even any remote plan for a third CD, so you'd have to assume all these tracks are cutting room floor leftovers from the first two albums. And some pretty nice ones, at that.

This is not part of a third album. They are random demos that JW had around at the time. There may be _some_ that were leftovers from albums 1/2, but nothing that was planned for a not ever in the works #3, and it's hard to even hear Schon or Cain on any/most of them.

Pretty sure some of these were pre-Bad English Waite demos.

    • I must say this is easily one, if not my favorite thread. Got to love these 1 offs and oddities. Wish I cold have them all. Once I get my collection out of jail I may copy you and do a PNW version as sharing is caring.   Thanks for the efforts in this thread Russ much appreciated.
    • I adore those first 2 Kix records honestly, their discography is almost in order of favorites, literally with Midnight at 3 and Blow at 4, Hotwire 5 (but could bundle with Show business, but those first 4, minus Don't Close Your Eyes (that one never did much for me, OK song, but quite skippable) are quintessential. 
    • As much as I love Kix, their first 2 albums are not great. And "In God We Trust" was TRASH.
    • Kix (duh). S/T, Cool Kids, Midnight Dynamite, Blow My Fuse, Hotwire. They really can do no wrong. Kings X (double duh). Into the Silent Planet, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, Faith, Hope, Love, Self Titled, DogMan, Ear Candy, etc... Enuff Z Nuff has at least 10 albums of worthy material, starting with the S/T, then Animals w/Human Intelligent, easily to and through 10, but easily could include Welcome To Blue Island and album 12 ? (question mark). Stryper. Yellow and Black Attack, Soldiers Under Command, To Hell W/the Devil, In God We Trust, and the EPIC Against The Law. Butch Walker/Floyds Funk Revival/Marvelous 3. Sure its a blend of names but mostly the same guys and from Creamy, to the 3 Marvie records to Butch's Left of Self Centered is a good run, and you could include the 2 Southgang records as that's still Butch, Jay and Slug and depending on how much appreciation you have for Butch you can go to present as he is brilliant.   I also think Metal Church, The Dwarves, Warrior Soul and Nelson fit the bill as well.   I am sure there are many more.
    • Oh wow, that song is awful.  
    • The Carpenters never bugged me but... A few years ago, my wife and I went to see Bill Medley in concert.  Well, actually, we went to see Christopher Cross but Medley was the opening act.  Anyway I digress... Medley performed "I've Had the Time of My Life" as you might expect.  And it was wonderful.  Except...the female duet parts were sung by his daughter.  THAT was a bit creepy.   FWIW, Medley was incredible.  Puts on a wonderful show and sounds amazing.  Then again, so was Christopher Cross.  All in all, a tremendous concert.
    • That version........well, let's just say it's not good.
