John Corabi, lead singer of the band The Dead Daisies and at one time for a brief moment, he was the lead singer for Motley Crue. He was on only one studio album and that was the 1994 self-titled album, Motley Crue. When Vince was no longer in the band, the band reached out to John and bam, we got one of Motley’s most underrated albums. It was a different Motley Crue. A little more bluesy, a little more serious and a little more awesome.
However, ever since Vince rejoined the band, that 1994 album has basically been ignored. When Motley Crue released their vinyl box set called “The End”, they omitted this album along with ‘Generation Swine’. I was a little pissed. I wanted all their albums on vinyl.
John Corabi decided to perform this 1994 Motley Crue album live for One Night only in Nashville, Tennessee (but toured it more than just Nashville). Thankfully, he released it back in early 2018; however, I never found it on vinyl.
Imagine my surprise when I saw an ad for it on Facebook that mentioned he was releasing it as a very limited edition vinyl 2LP set and Bam!!! I jumped on it. Hell, if Motley Crue wasn’t going to release it on vinyl, then this is certainly the next best thing…if not better!! Now I swore it said it would be out in February, but it arrived on my doorstep just before Christmas. That was a nice surprise.
First off, how limited an edition is it? Well, it is only limited to 300 copies in a Red Splatter vinyl. What # did I get? I will show you…
