Don't know alot about this project and can't help you with even a bootleg version ( been waiting for a proper release for eons). Can this guy pen a song or what? Title of the project was Jabberwocky and featured guitarist Rick Steier and I believe drummer James Kottak both of whom Lane brought into the Warrant family sometime thereafter. Comfortable with sad and my private blue world are huge faves of mine.

I have a boot of it. It's really great stuff. Jabberwocky is something Jani had worked on for years. There's roughly 10-12 tracks and they are all acoustic driven and marvelous. Recommended to everyone!

A word of warning about the Jani Lane--Jabborwocky cd. I had a copy of it one time, but the quality was not good at all. I got it in a trade or something, because I am a Warrant fan.....Like the Jack Ponti--disc...if you can get past the sound quality, its pretty cool...sounded accoustic in some places. Now while we are on the subject of the Back Down to One cd......I think Jani did sound good, but the music really was the party-type that him and Warrant was really known for. I am not dissing anyone who likes it.....I just wasn't impressed with it. I would like to see Jani do another solo....to see if he still has that spunk and that "ballsy" attitude that he had when he and the boys did Cherry Pie.

This is true. I've tried a few copies of it and they all sound like crap, sound quality-wise. Great songs, though. 'Private blue world' is one of my all-time faves.

Wow, this is an old thread! As Geoff said, the quality out there is bad but I have played the shit out of these songs over the years. If they ever get an official release I will have them for sure!

I keep downloading this from different sources in the hopes at least one will have the songs tagged. Still no luck with what the names of most of the songs are. :(

I've got 18 tracks. I was going through them this morning and the others are live tracks that are Warrant tracks with a couple from the Jabberwocky project I believe. Kind of confusing trying to figure this all out.

I have a song I downloaded ages ago, which was listed as a Jabberwocky song, but its not on that tracklisting.

Its called Sinners road!

 

 

 

Would love to hear that track if you could post it :whistle::beerbang:

 

 

All of the live Jabberwocky tracks that are floating around are from a live acoustic show from 1998 recorded in Brazil. The whole version of this show is available to download on the internet. Great show with great quality. That's where Fine, Fine Line came from.

That's the show with just Jani and Danny Wagner, right?

I think you gave me a cdr of that show. :tumbsup:

Now that I think of it, I think I actually ripped it from Jani's Myspace page, and its definetly from the Jabberwocky sessions!

Far better quality than the other stuff.

    • SHIRAZ LANE – Forgotten Shades Of Life (2022) AUGUST 11, 2022   various sources internet Finnish rockers SHIRAZ LANE consisting of lead vocalist Hannes Kett, lead guitarist Jani Laine, rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske, bassist Joel Alex and drummer Ana Willman will be releasing their third full-length studio album ”Forgotten Shades of Life” on August 12, 2022. The new CD combines the melodic feel and heaviness from previous albums with a fresh versatile approach from head-banging hard rock riffing to power ballads and classic rock’n’roll groove. “Back to Life“ opens the album with a bullet of a tune – from the opening riffs you begin to experience the amazing talent that is Shiraz Lane. Thumping along Hannes demonstrates his simply stunning vocal range. The song powers along with subtle drop-offs in pace bringing back memories of Shark Island‘s “Paris Calling“. “Maniac Dance“: provides a slightly funkier vibe, full of those great riffs, and catchy chorus this is gonna be a crowd favourite. The track heads towards a positively blues crescendo, demonstrating their ability in mixing it up but still coming back with a final blast of the infectious chorus. “Scream“: not a new song to many but great to see it on the track listing. This song represents the demons many of us face with mental health issues. The top end of Hannes‘s vocal range is incredible in this catchy song, sorry ANTHEM… Expect this to appear on many live set lists, and that is great news for the fans. “Forgotten Shades of Life“: the title track of the album brings us some respite with a slightly slower pace, but no less intensity. Almost a Led Zep vibe at times, but once again Shiraz pull it out the bag with this ‘lighter’, or ‘mobile phone’, in the air offering. “Beat of Your Heart“: is a full-on 80’s hard rock ballad. Powerful lyrics, great chorus, almost dare I say Queen-esque vocal support, they have absolutely nailed this killer ballad. “Animal“: picks up the pace again and powers us into something faster and heavier. You can’t help but bang your head to this absolute belter of a track. Dare I say there are almost early Metallica traits when Jani brings his axe to the party. “Disconnect from the Matrix“ is another hard thumping track, once again mixing up the pace as the track progresses. This is something we’ve not heard from Shiraz before, but as the whole album is proving to be full of new ideas, it just proves that Shiraz are not afraid to break new ground, whilst keeping that catchy, thought-provoking, chorus and thumping riffs. “Haunted House“ launches us into Southern rock sound and vibe to it. The riffs are less apparent there is a lighter feel with this tune, a little more commercial sounding to what has come before, but nonetheless the song is still catchy. “Who’s Watching“ opens with saxophones… What? I’m now transported into a blues club as this 2-minute epilogue to “Haunted House” brings us back to earth and allows us time to take a breath. Good job as it’s getting harder to breathe. “Letter to Yourself“ is another ballad that wouldn’t go amiss on MTV back in the ’80s. Hannes‘s voice is once again demonstrated to its full in this song proving him to have one of the most incredible and unique voices and vocal ranges in the current rock scene. “Imagination“: concludes the album and provides a 6-minute roller-coaster of varying paces and styles. All held together in true big chorus Shiraz style. This album is another massive step forward for Shiraz Lane in their bid to stamp their authority on the current rock scene. Utilizing Hannes‘s unique vocals to the max this album offers fantastic riffs, fantastic tunes, unbelievably catchy choruses and demonstrates that Shiraz Lane continue to progress as a band. This is a great album from a band which doesn’t repeat themselves – but still 100% Shiraz Lane, and that is a very good thing. Highly Recommended   Tracklist:   01 – Back to Life 02 – Maniac Dance 03 – Scream 04 – Forgotten Shades of Life 05 – Beat of Your Heart 06 – Animal 07 – Disconnect from the Matrix 08 – Haunted House 09 – Who’s Watching? 10 – Letter to Yourself 11 – Imagination lead vocals – Hannes Kett lead guitar – Jani Laine rhythm guitar – Miki Kalske bass – Joel Alex drums – Ana Willman   Pre order: www.amazon.com/Forgotten-Shades-Life-Shiraz-Lane/dp/B0B5LYLCHZ
    • Men who do men? Cody, Geoff, and you.
    • Trust me, I am the biggest of Tesla fans. Watched their DVD 1,000 times. They were one of the best bands out there. I even loved Bust A Nut, considered their worst disc. But this is rubbish that I'm embarrassed to call Tesla. Same as the last few albums. Simplicity and the Def Leppard album were just so bad. They miss Tommy Skeoch I think.
    • Again, why is this in the Flamefest sub-thread? Who's angry with this? 
    • Oh God I just noticed your favorite band in your bio, please don't kill me!!!
    • Maybe you'll have better luck than me with it. Seriously one of the most disappointing albums for me that I can remember.  These guys had been on such a roll and an upward trajectory for me.  This has sent them crashing back down.  The songs just feel like they're all over the place. I had read somewhere that one reason they left Frontiers was because they wanted more creative control.  If this is what that looks like, it was a big mistake IMO.      
    • And there it is... but could have been worse!
