I'm pondering what appetite there would be for a "BAD Survivor Poll." :shifty:
I would be up for it but one clusterfuck at a time mate. ;)
I mean, much like their discography, I’d be up for at first but lose interest after a while.

I'm up for the first three albums and then, yeah, whatever you guys pick is good.

I cannot imagine being able to sift through which track on Higher Power needs to be eliminated 3rd

First four albums only, I consider them a different band after 1989.

The name changes alone suggests you're correct.

I couldn't imaging discovering the BAD catalogue all at once and 30+ years after the fact. It was such a great thing waiting for each new release, wondering what Mick was going to do, BAD, Upping and Megatop blew me away and then so did The Globe, got them on lp when they came out along with the singles, got Higher Power and F Punk on cassette. I just love them all, including Tighten Up. The BAD Files are a must!

I wonder if they'd be enough interest in London for one of those audiophile group listenings that seem very popular at the moment? Maybe it's been done already?

Just about to listen to all of Tighten Up Vol. '88 for the first time. Will get back with a brief review, what are your favourites on there though?

Some great songs on this album, I just don't like the rinky dinky drums and Mick's guitar is mixed too low.

It's all great not a poor song on their. But as Heston states a bit of a duff mix.

Wow what an album. My favourite of theirs I might add. Only 2 duff tracks in my opinion (Mr Walker Said & 2000 Shoes.) The rest is solid.

Loved these 3, All Saints especially. Spot on. Others I loved were Champagne and Hip, Neck and Thigh. Stunning album.
