I've started getting into these guys heavier recently and I was wondering which of their albums you guys like more? They're both pretty killer bluesy metal/hard rock albums, as I'm sure you all know. I love Jake E. Lee's guitar and Ray Gillen's vocals so much; what a combo.

I've never heard Voodoo Highway so I'm going with the self titled by default. I love that album. Winter's Call is a fantastic song.

Oh dude, if you love the first one you'd like the second as well. Might be harder to find though, I've just been listening to it on YouTube.



I haven't voted yet though, cos I don't know which album will end up sticking with me more in the long run.

The debut for me. Like Uncle Sax, it's a top 5 all time album for me.

Debut easily. If you can find Dusk it's great also.

Both albums are fantastic. The debut probably gets spun more frequently, so that got the vote. I've never heard Dusk, but I have been outbid a few times, trying to win a copy.

Have the debut on CD, dig it immensely.

Used to own Voodoo Highway on tape but it's lost to the ages so I haven't heard it in years.

(IMHDO) Jeff Martin has a style more suited to the tunes they play, so I voted for "Voodoo Highway".

Still dig the debut though. I remember seeing Ray sing with Savatage at Jezebel's in Santa Anna (Streets Tour I believe) it was awesome.

Since I had to pick for the poll, I went with the debut, but I love them equally. I played the shit out of both all through high school. I remember buying the cassingle for "Dreams in the Dark" at the mall after hearing it on the Z Rock 50 countdown. I still have my original cassettes from hs and bought a few live boots about a decade ago as they never released a live album.

Probably my favorite song of theirs, but I'll go with the first album, barely.

What does a live bootleg sound like by these guys back in the day ? !
I can’t believe, in this day of age, a concert’s not available, by this band.

Not bad. One is B+ sound and the other is B-. Both have fantastic packaging with full cover tray cards and booklets. One is called "Devils Dust" and the other is called "Whiskey Train" and they are really more of a collector's item. The dude I got them from had a ton of stuff. I got a few Dokken from him, too but stopped as he kinda wanted a lot for the discs. The packaging and presentation was killer. but sound quality was okay.

Another guy I bought a lot from was low price and sparse packaging ( one or two silver discs with a wraparound cover in a thin plastic sleeve) but his sound quality was professional; even for Dio. Priest, and Leppard stuff from the early '80's.

Went with Voodoo Highway because it was the first one I got. However, I like both albums equally.

I was listening to Dusk cd by them this morning on my way into work.
I was shocked by how much - like The Cult - some of these songs sound like.
There's even some touches of Zep here and there. Great recording.
