The first Great White album I owned was Can’t Get There From Here, but of course I had to step back in time and pick this one up years ago. Great White has never been flashy, just solid blues-influenced hard rock and Jack Russell has always been one of my favorite vocalists, so they deliver in their typical style here.

The album is definitely a must own though for “Rock Me” and “Save Your Love” (which are my two favorite Great White songs).

I have to say, I absolutely hate this cover. It (and the girl) look really cheap, she’s not very cute.

Highlights: “Lady Red Light”, “Gonna Getcha”, “Rock Me”, “All Over Now”, “Save Your Love”

    Great white is definitely one of my favorites as well, and my band is considering to cover Lady Red Light. I like how great white’s exactly in middle of gnr and led zeppelin?

    thanks for sharing the review, i’m planning to write some on my own later in my blog too.
