Black 'N Blue
Released: 2008, Metal Mind Productions
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Most known for their hit songs “Hold On To 18” and “Ms. Mystery”; Black n Blue were a band with allot of potential and allot of shitty luck.
The pair of live songs and the different versions and unreleased studio track make for one interesting collection. All are hard and heavy rockers here and demonstrate Jaime’s high energy vocal style. It is no wonder Warrant scooped him up after the departure of Jani Lane. The Saint and guitarist Thayer are the backbone to the band and despite some bad events they carried on and recorded some memorable tunes.
The quality of this release is it’s biggest downfall. They should have mixed it better so it doesn’t sound so ‘boomy’ in places as to bury the vocals. Just a better mix would make this already great disc much more enjoyable.
