Fun Covers EP
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 09/02/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a sucker for a good cover song, and in 1992 Skid Row served up an EP full of them. Here's what you get:

1. Psycho Therapy (the Ramones) - Nothing's more fun than a Ramones cover. Bach & the boys take on this punk rock classic and seem to enjoy themselves in the process.
2. C'Mon and Love Me (KISS) - I'll give them credit for not picking an obvious KISS song, and they deliver a faithful cover version.
3. Delivering the Goods (Judas Priest) - This live track features a guest appearance by Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford. Bach ends the song proclaiming his love for Halford, which you have to find slightly ironic given Rob's (at the time) closet homosexuality and Bach's homophobic "AIDS kills f--s dead" t-shirt controversy. The song still rocks though, and is worth the price of the CD just to hear these two screamers perform together.
4. What You're Doing (Rush) - Again, I give them credit for picking a song that you wouldn't expect. This one comes from way back on Rush's debut album.
5. Little Wing (Jimi Hendrix) - It's not easy to cover a legend, but the band does a good job here both musically and vocally.

B-Sides Ourselves is a fun EP, and even though it's less than 19 minutes long, it's still worth the relatively low price to hear Skid Row pay tribute to some of their influences."
Skid Row - 'B-Sides Ourselves' (Atlantic) Five-track EP
Mike Reed | USA | 12/01/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"'B-Sides...' has just five songs and runs twenty minutes.I don't usually go for EP's,but I've always liked this one.It features Skid Row playing five of their personal favorite covers.The track that I enjoyed the most was Rush's "What You're Doing" from the Canadian trio's debut lp.When I saw Skid Row play live awhile back,I remember them performing The Ramone's "Psycho Therapy" with bassist Rachel Bolan on lead vocals.Something I didn't at all expect to see here,was with their cover of the Judas Priest tune "Delivering The Goods",that Rob Halford was trading off vocals with Sebastian Bach.The two remaining cuts are Kiss's "C'mon And Love Me" and Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing".Very nice,indeed."
Delivering the Goods!

"I saw this several times in the store but had no idea what to make of it. Finally, I broke down and bought it. I shouldn't have waited so long. it's a good thing to hear bands do the classics without ruining them. When I say that, I don't mean Britney Spears trying to rock out to a Rolling Stones song. That is what you call ruining a song by an annoying singer whose only appeal is T&A, and that doesn't stand for talent and ability. While it is too short and there is a song on there I'm not crazy about (Psycho Therapy), I like the rest a lot. Especially KISS' C'mon and Love Me and a live version of Judas Priest's Delivering the Goods with Mr. Rob Halford in attendance. Plus, any Hendrix cover is cool.I wouldn't pay $20 for it but if you see it for under $10, pick it up. It's worth it.Stay strong,
