PostSubject: Question about Quiet Riot "Original Album Classics" Box   Wed Apr 12, 2017 11:56 am

I'm thinking about filling out my Quiet Riot collection and I have my eye on this "Original Album Classics" set at DeepDiscount: Four studio albums (plus a live disc) in one handy dandy little box, for about twenty bucks:


http://www.deepdiscount.com/original-album-classics/888750636522

My question to anyone who might own this set is this: as you can see, the box cover art shows the Randy Rhoads lineup (!) of Quiet Riot, and seems to indicate that the set includes "Quiet Riot I," which to the best of my knowledge was and still is a Japan-only release.

HOWEVER, the track listing shown on this site (and several others that I've checked) all show the tracks for the self-titled QR album from 1988, with Paul Shortino on vox, not "Quiet Riot I."

So does this set actually include a Rhoads-era disc, or did Sony's art department screw up cuz they don't know one QR lineup (or one self titled QR album) from another?

Amazon's listing for this set shows a different cover (Kevin with the metal mask in place of the Rhoads era lineup, and the 1988 QR album instead of Quiet Riot I).


https://www.amazon.com/Original-Album-Classics-QUIET-RIOT/dp/B00RVD8D9O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492012083&sr=8-1&keywords=quiet+riot+original+album+classics

So I am getting the feeling that wherever I order this set from, I'm gonna get the Shortino album, not the Rhoads one. It doesn't make much diff to me either way, cuz I've never owned either one (tho honestly I think I'd rather hear the Rhoads stuff). I'm just wondering if anyone has either one of the sets pictured and might be able to shed some light.

Thanx

I posted this same question at another forum I frequent and the consensus seems to be that the version with Randy Rhoads on the cover was a preliminary design, which was then replaced by the Dubrow-In-Mask version since Randy's family has decree'd, for whatever reason, that the Quiet Riot albums he played on will never see the light of the day in the Western world.

Soooo, Shortino album it is, then. (shrugs) Case closed, I guess.

I only know two songs from it - "Stay With Me Tonight" (which was the single/MTV video) and "King Of The Hill" (which is on a cheapie best-of comp I have called Winners Take All) ... never heard the rest.

...tho I do remember being in a Sam Goody store circa 1988 and overhearing the manager tell an employee to take that album off of the new-release wall because "it's selling like sh*t." Laughing very hard

Like most good music.  Especially the Shortino projects - Rough Cutt, QR, King Kobra, Shortino/JK Northrup, his immensely kick ass solo albums....

Been a while since i heard any of the Shortino tunes I seem to remember it sounding similar to Whitesnake.
