    A Different Kind of Truth sort of took a big chunk out of my list, but I would've liked to have heard these if they had done another album.

    We had an unreleased thread on here a little while back that had a few unreleased originals from the club days that I hadn't heard before.

    It's fucking great.



    Big Trouble's also awesome.

    Angel Eyes,,, meh.
    For me, Beats Workin destroys POTL, both lyrically and musically.

    Would fit right in on a Trixter or Firehouse album.
    Definitely disagree with your last sentence. Cmon. To me, it has an early 70s radio vibe to it, as it should lol. Doesnt sound anything like cheesy 80s hair metal balladry to me.

    The rarest and least talked about ones I'd say are:

    Glitter
    Gentlemen of Leisure
    Honolulu Baby
    Take It Back/Believe Me
    One More Time
    The Shape You're In
    Forced Entry

    Probably some of those.

    One More Time is a good one I forgot about that one. I Wanna Be Your Lover I liked too but not sure the lyrics couldn’t have been redone a bit better.

    I never cared to much for I Wanna Be Your Lover. I did like Honolulu Baby quite a bit. Believe Me, too.

    Its pretty impressive how prolific they were in such a short span of time back then, at writing so many classic high quality tunes.

    Let's try and list all the ones we have recordings of, either studio or live, that didn't become something else later on. Feel free to edit:

    Glitter
    Gentlemen of Leisure
    Angel Eyes
    Believe Me
    I Wanna Be Your Lover
    Forced Entry
    No More Waiting(Dave calls it Show No Mercy at times)
    Get The Show on the Road
    Eyes of the Night
    Babe Don't Leave Me Alone
    Just What You Wanted
    The Shape You're In
    One More Time
    Act Like it Hurts
    I Want Some Action

    I Want Some Action and That's Why I Love You are the only ones that are record worthy, IMO. I wish they had polished I Want Some Action and put it on 5150 in place of Get Up.

    I think just the fans call it "No More Waiting," so if Dave calls it "Show No Mercy" that must be what it's called.

    There's also that "Time's a Waste" song they did live in Providence on 10/9/91 that was on the Merry Melodies compilation. Unless you consider it a jam.

    And add TWILY of course.

    Yeah always thought "Lover" could've been better lyrically. Seems bland by Roth standards.

    I have never understood the appeal of I Want Some Action.
