The Very Best of Thunder....Danny Bowes was one of the best hard rock singers Britain has ever produced. Luke Morley was the new Mick Ralphs in waiting. Thunder were huge in Britain and were growing in Europe. What happened???.

It's ironic that along with the band, EMI have released this incredible boxset. For it was EMI who broke and dropped Thunder, by means of a " contract extension" that was totally unworkable. Thunder's rightful place as one of the biggest British hard rock bands on the planet, alongside Def Leppard and Iron Maiden was not to be.

Thunder had built a staggering reputation in the UK & Europe, with a string of hit singles, an excellent live act, TWO Donnington appearances and three top-draw studio albums. They were sent to conquer the U.S 18 months too late and by then Grunge had taken over the U.S airwaves and hard rock and hair metal was considered redundant. The tour was subsequently canceled, no one would touch them with an excremented twig. Thunder returned to the U.K to find the terms of a contract extension by EMI totally unworkable. Without the big label backing, the game was up.....

Disc One has the best of the brilliant first two albums " Back Street Symphony" & " Laughing On Judgment Day". " She's So Fine" " Higher Ground", " Dirty Love", " Gimme Some Lovin'", " Like A Satellite", " Everybody Wants Her", " Low Life In High Places" & " A Better Man" to name a few are remastered, louder and sound as classic & inspiring today as they did years ago. Former producer, Andy Taylor duets on a cover of the Faces classic " Stay With Me" which is top draw.

Disc Two has the best of " Behind Closed Doors" and a stack of quality B sides.

When Thunder hit the scene in 1989 with their debut album, Backstreet Symphony, the majority of the band were seasoned musicians having been in Terraplane beforehand. I bought the first album and was a fan but I never made it to a gig until '94. Having notched up in excess of 30 Thunder gigs, and having practically everything they've released, I will miss them when they hang up their boots later this year.
Danny Bowes is one the best rock singers around - still - and he is up there with the all time greats. Luke Morley, the main and almost sole songwriter, is a real talent and someone who has not had the recognition he deserves. The band is certainly recognised by their loyal following and have sold enough shows and enough albums to keep going on their own, for a few years at least. Thunder have been regularly selling out venues of a couple of thousand for years. However, this will be the 20 years and out tour and they are going out on a high.
This compilation has all that you require - the best of the EMI material (the first three albums) plus the added bonus of the Donington recording. This is mainly their early songs, with only a few songs from their fourth album and beyond. That is no real surprise as it is EMI who are releasing it. However, there are a few from their later material but unfortunately it is only a taster. In my opinion, the last three albums (Magnificent Seventh, Robert Johnson's Tombstone and Bang) stand up there with Backstreet and Laughing. Check out the other albums on []
At this price, it is a must have... an absolute bargain and there are more than a handful of songs which any fan of good old classic rock would enjoy on this compilation.

I have been a fan of Thunder since I walked into a record store many years ago and they were playing a unknown track to me, then another followed. By the 3rd song I was hooked and I had to ask the assistant who it was, it's the debut album by a band called Thunder was the reply. So I bought the album there and then. Further albums followed, which I added to my collection. So why buy this set ? I bought the download version so to put on my mp3 player etc. The price of the download is 1/2 the price of say, a Robbie Williams album but you get 3 disc' worth, 44 tracks and music that's a 1000 times better. Why they never became one of the biggest bands in the world I will never know. I think it was a case of being in the right place at the wrong time. By the time Thunder arrived this type of rock was on the way out unfortunately and then we were exposed sadly to the the continuing era of 'boy bands'. I think Thunder were up there with Judas Priest and Iron Maiden (I actually prefer Thunder). They had better crafted songs and a better singer than Def Leppard. This 3 disc set gives you the highlights and some wonderful live recordings on disc 3. Talking of which what a live band they are and still doing it. In Danny Bowes you have on of the best British rock singers ever and a great front man. For there sakes I wished they could of become more successful , but at least they gave us some great music. So buy this collection now, plug in your air guitar and turn off X-factor.

A great collection of Thunder hits, rates etc. I have them all apart from a few live tracks on it, but I had to buy this.

I've been a fan since summer 1990, this very underrated Hard Rock band who I believed were better than Jovi in their day, should have broke America (thanks Grunge, boo!)

The only song that I would have added to this collection would be It Happened In This Town, one of my all time faves Thunder songs. But that just me.

Worth every penny. Buy it if you like your rock music!
