They were cheaper but they even omitted the back covers of albums sometimes. I still have Maiden's 'Killers' on fame with no back cover. Damn that is one old CD. About 20 years I've had it I think. Nice heads up to 'Absolutely' too. Loved that show.

I remember these bastards from my youth.

So I get my first CD player and so now it's time to go out and fill it with the back catalogue of the bands I happen to be into. Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne were a couple of the first artists I did this with. and that's where I first came into contact with these fucking things.
So I pick up Screaming For Vengence & Blizzard Of Ozz. Both fine albums. The huge NICE PRICE sticker seems to be spot welded to the case , but thats OK because I have 2 great albums here. I open them up pull the sleeve out to examine it only to find all I have is a copy of the album cover that seems to have no lyrics , no pictures , no info , no sleevenotes.... Nothing. Just a catalogue telling me which REO Speedwagon , Foreigner , Boston and Journey albums I can buy. Well great , thanks for that.

And the biggest irony of all : They're not a fucking nice price at all. they're about a quid less than a brand new release.

Fucking Sony.


I think cut-rate CD's in general should be included. Bastardized covers, that damn "CD-Rom" logo covering up the artwork, etc. Heck, stickers on the cases in any scenario. As you said, they're impossible to get off.

I was thinking more along lines of the rock vocalist section on DDD.

I've never even read any of his stuff so by default he doesn't annoy me.

sorry

67 : Great Artists From The 60s And 70s Making Terrible Records In The 80s

I actually have a theory about this.
I think around 1977 after having all credibility and relevancy stripped away from them by the arrival of punk most of these old farts retreated to their country mansions into a drug induced coma that lasted for about 6 years. When they came out of them the whole music scene was an entirely different kettle of fish and with punk & new wave out of the way they all went out and bought big shouldered pastel coloured suits , rolled up the sleeves , got their hair permed and highlighted and set about showing the world that they could compete with these young whippersnappers like The Smiths & The Cure and whatever pop fad was happening at the time , with hilarious consequences.

Of course one group of men excelled at sucking in the 80s , and that was the prog rockers. Somewhere along the way these bands suddenly decided that they were bored of harp solos , 45 minute epics about elves and playing to arenas full of bearded virgins and decided what they really wanted was some pussy at their gigs. and what better way to attract pussy to your gigs by making radio friendly rock anthems & ballads , so they did. You can't really blame them because it worked. It caused their fan base to choke but nobody really cares what they think. After being gobbed to oblivion by punk what better way to announce your still around than to have girls shaking their titties in your music videos.

The 80s , we'll never see it's like again ... thank God.

ahh... first band that came to mind while reading this, KISS.

Keith Richards in that outfit irritates the hell out of me.
