    I know you were. But, I saw the opportunity and seized it.

    Fortunately, every other song is better. And where "Beats Workin'" is concerned, they truly saved the best for last! I love that song.
    That's a great song. It's a reworking of "Put Out the Lights" from their original demos. I'd have to say "She's the Woman", "Outta Space" and "Big River" (formerly "Big Trouble") are my favorites on the album. "Tattoo" is terrible.

    "She's the Woman" is bitchin'! Wolf fought for it to be the first single.

    Didn't care for Tattoo originally but it's grown on me over the years.

    Were they opening for Derringer at this point, yet? It has been suggested that that's where they got the idea to do "You Really Got Me," which Derringer played during his live performances of R&R Hoochie Koo.

    No idea.

    The last song is an early version of "Fools* from the 3rd album. Eddie was already a gonzo, hot rod in 1975. I'd imagine the VH estate will release everything ever recorded by VH/Edward on physical media.

    Just listened to the three best tracks from ADKOT: As Is, China Town, Bullethead. Ouch. Those are three, badass tracks. Classic.

    I'll jump on Honeybabysweetiedoll, You And Your Blues, and Blood And Fire as the best from that album.

    There's a song here titled In For The Kill. I was shocked when Dave starts yammering about a group called Budgie. What? Yes, they cover Budgie. Not bad.

    They cover Deep Purple (Maybe I'm a Leo) and The James Gang (Walk Away).

    I had forgotten about this EP until Weasel made a joke on Facebook. I forgot how much Eddie burns on this

    It's a damn shame they only recorded those three songs. Would have been great if they could have made a full album, even if it was just them jamming on Steppin' Out or whatever.
