I think it is a little bit of a questionable exercise every time Tyla re-records one of the classic Dog’s D'amour album, records like “Graveyard of empty bottles” & "Dynamite jet saloon ” are such perfect albums (that hold such affection in the hearts of Dogs fans), it seem like a pointless project to undertake.
But the same can’t be said of “The State I’m in”, which was rush recorded in a single day, then acoustic guitars & keyboards were later over-dubbed with out the bands consent, ever Tyla’s art work was left off cover.
So you get two versions of the album (which is nice), one electric, the other acoustic (there’s only the acoustic version of “Can’t get you out of my Head”).
The electric version has a nice laid-back slightly woozy feel to the music (no doubt due to the vast quintiles of real ale consumed whilst the originally album was written & recorded, I’m sure the band are all Tea-total these days!).
The acoustic version of the album is where the music really comes alive, with the songs stripped down, filling them with raw emotion, the highlight’s being “Heroine” with a nice accompanying organ, & “State I’m in” with a piano given the song added poignancy.

DVD
Music videos for electric versions of:
“Wicked & wide awake”
“Unconscious boy”
“Heroine”
“How do you fall in love again?”
Low budget, pretend live in the studio, there ok & it is nice to put faces to the names of the band members.

Acoustic live versions of:
“Unconscious boy”
“State I’m in”
“How do you fall in love?”
Unfortunately Tyla is properly miked up, so he guitar drowns out his vocals a little, which is a shame.

DVD Extras:
Original promo videos for
“State I’m in”
“How do you fall in love again?

Before i start id like to point out this isnt a proper review as ive only downloaded the electric tracks off the album , not the acoustic side.ive never heard the original vinyl only ''state were in'' although i have a copy of the cd Tyla released of ''long lost mixes'' or whatever he called it , but it was from a wobbly c90 and totally unlistenable.
I suppose its fair to assume that if the record had been recorded like the band wanted all those years ago , it would have sounded similar to ''the bootleg album''.On this occasion Tyla has done better than that - it sounds like real drums ,no synthesizers, a tasteful rock rhythm guitar tone - no soupy line6 guitar effects that he sometimes indulges in.The result in terms of sound is nearest to 'Gothic' in my opinion but without a proper lead guitarist ( from the solo of 'girl in black' id say Tyla plays the lead guitar parts- of which there are few) a good honky tonky guitarist might have been the icing on the cake here , but its a small gripe.The arrangements are simple and they work.
The only track i cant get on with is ''unconscious boy'' which is painfully slow at half speed ( he also recorded a different take on this song on an acoustic album a few years back, it seems he just doesnt like playing it with in its original arrangement).Anyway on the whole im happy that eventually the gaps in my dogs collection have been filled, and although i cant vouch for the acoustic side of the record id definitely recommend what ive heard.

Great nostalgic films, certainly takes you back to the hay-days of 80’s rock.
You also get Tyla & friends talking about the making of the album, Tyla is hilarious recounted his misadventures & is on par with Jeff Lynne & Ozzy for telling antidotes.
I nice cherry on top of the cake, but one does feel that most of DVD footage will be on Youtube within a couple of weeks.

Great liner notes & artwork accompany the CD/DVD; there has been a real effort to make this album worth purchasing, & I think because of the circumstances surrounding the original release it's well worth it, & a good if late addition to the Dogs back-catalogue, just a shame the first version couldn’t be re-mastered.
