5.0 out of 5 stars Thunder's B-side compliation
Thunder - an excellent band. The Rare, The Raw, and The Rest - an excellent odds and sods collection. Luke Morley's a very talented songwriter and if some of the demos on here aren't entirely brilliant, there are enough superb tracks to merit 5 stars.
Best among these is Move On - recorded for Behind Closed Doors but left off because it didn't fit the mood of the...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Thunder we know & Love!
The tracks that make up 'The Rare, The Raw, And The Rest' are tracks that were recorded but not released during sessions for previous EMI Thunder albums, and for a reason. The album has very few songs of any note and plays as the kind of album released to fullfill contractual obligations. As a true Thunder fan I was disappointed by the quality of the album. Only buy it if...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thunder's B-side compliation, 7 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Thunder - an excellent band. The Rare, The Raw, and The Rest - an excellent odds and sods collection. Luke Morley's a very talented songwriter and if some of the demos on here aren't entirely brilliant, there are enough superb tracks to merit 5 stars.
Best among these is Move On - recorded for Behind Closed Doors but left off because it didn't fit the mood of the album, available on CD here only. An uptempo, slide guitar driven (lighthearted!) break-up track - "I get the feeling this ain't the way it used to be, I can tell from the way you're throwing everything at me", it's marvellous.
Also worthy of note is Another Shot of Love, which was never recorded in a studio but the live version bristles with energy, the alternate version of Future Train (as Luke says in the sleevenotes, why wasn't this on BCD?), Stand Up's skiffly acoustic version and the rocking Who cover, 5:15.
It may not hang together like a regular album, but there's a lot of quality to be mined from this disc. Buy it, enjoy it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic odds and sods, 31 Jan 2009

If you like the early, hard rocking Thunder, you will love this.

Any song that narrowly missed out on inclusion on their first three albums is worth listening to, and there are some gems here.

The two factors that differentiate Thunder from other hard rock bands are Luke Morley's outstanding songwriting and Danny Bowes' soulful and pure vocals.

End of. The peoples' rock band.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'classic -era' Thunder at their best, 15 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Some real gems from Thunder, many of them previously unreleased, provide a perfect showcase of the band's abilities. An album for fans of quality rock music.

Only buy it if you have room on the shelf that needs filling as it won't spend much time in your CD player!
