|Danger Danger Rare Cuts||Low Dice Records|
Rare Cuts is a long awaited compilation of outtakes and original demos submitted by the band for their self titled debut album – or in other words, the demos that got them the deal with Sony Music.|
Naturally, that means that Ted Poley is the vocalist featured here.
Considering the age of the tracks and their demo status, they sound surprisingly fresh. It's fun to hear tracks like Bang Bang and Feels Like Love in their original form, not to mention a few rare tracks like the party anthem Loving' A Girl Like You, the uptempo Hold On Maria, and the big moody ballad Temptation (covered by Y&T).
This is one for fans of Ted and other Danger Danger die-hards.
It's all a bit of good fun, but after two archival releases and a Live and Best of collection still to come, I say get back to the studio for a new album with Paul Laine.
The last two Danger Danger albums with Paul have been genre topping gems and the time taken between those albums and whenever the next one will appear is just far too long.
