An insight on how to record properly!

"Despite the band's image, that they were often lampooned for even during the era (no thanks to Metallica's home video of the "Black Album"'s recording process), Winger has always been a band of phenominal musical talent. The band has quite an impressive catalog in their brief early career in the late 80's and early 90's.

Yet Kip and company still managed to continue on in solo projects or in other bands. Till the band could no longer deny the demand for their products anymore. Thanks in part to Poison's annual summer tours with the best names in the genre, Winger was finally back in gear in 2001 with their "Very Best of" collection featuring a new track. Touring followed the next year w/ Poison and not too long afterwards, Kip was touring more often solo and his solo work was finally starting to get it's due.

The band has always impressed me live and in the studio. What's really nice about this collection is the closeness to the more familiar versions we've been listening to for the past 20 years. Yet these demos have a freshness and a raw energy component that some of the finished versions lack a bit. Overall, there's about an album's length worth of unreleased material on here that's worth the purchase alone. A must for any diehard Winger fan.

Too bad there wasn't any demos of "IV" on here but yet due to time constraints and the fact that the album is pretty much recorded as is in the studio (*see the limited edition DVD "Making of Winger IV" to see the song writting process) Some of the "new" material will have a immediate reaction for they are the core of the final songs on the albums. Others were totally unreleased gems that can still hold a candle to anything out there today!

Most of this material has been put out on the net or other mediums over the years, so here's Kip putting it all together in a phenominal 2 disc set! My iPod runneth over!!!! If you like their studio work, you have to see this band live! They do not disappoint. A worthwhile purchase awaits you here!! - Sonny Thomas, The H.M.D. Music Resource Guide® -"
Better than the original

"This is what the songs were originally supposed to sound like before they were re-recorded and processed. There is a much rougher edge to the songs than the studio release. This is a great collection. Highly recommended."
Wow, Winger Lives!

"I'm so happy Winger decided to release a demo anthology instead of a greatest hits collection. It's been over a year now, and hardly a day goes by that I don't listen to a few songs from this album. In fact, this is the album that got me excited about their last studio album, IV.

If you ever liked Winger, you will love this one. Pick it up while it's still in print!"
