When it comes to rerecording their work, Joe says "There are some strange Japanese B-sides that really aren't worth the effort" but I hope he reconsiders on "Can't keep away from the flame" that I heard on their acoustic jam from 1995 in Japan. I've never heard anything but the acoustic version, but I cherish it. I hope at least they redo an acoustic album that might include it. And, please guys, release a DVD of your videos so we can watch them and not keep losing them to the whim of someone threatening lawsuits on YouTube.

You know, all the trouble you are going to is so worth it. I went to Itunes to buy your Mirror Ball album, and for some reason was directed to what turned out to be a "tribute" album. (sigh) I didn't pay enough attention, and bought the whole album, thrilled to get it.
I hate to be critical of anyone's best efforts, but, it's like listening to Herman's Hermits singing Judas Priest. A few of your songs are so damn good, that they are great sung by anyone, but, um... well. I promise I will watch closer in the future.
And damn it, get us those tunes out! LOL
So glad I finially found this site after all these years!
