4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like tyla in 2011
a few tracks missing from original dynamite jet saloon, but tracks like swinging the bottle, how do you fall in love again, heroin which were not on original album is rerecorde here. The sound is the same as tyla has used the last two decades, and its raw not that overproduced polished sound.

1.0 out of 5 stars How to destroy a classic album in one easy lesson
When I heard that Tyla was going to re-record the Dogs D'amour's classic 'In the Dynamite Jet Saloon' I was cautiously optimistic. The only problem with the original release was that the production was a little weak and I hoped that a sympathetic rendering of the original tracks using modern production techniques might be worth having. Sadly not, Tyla has chosen to piss...

1.0 out of 5 stars How to destroy a classic album in one easy lesson, 11 April 2011

When I heard that Tyla was going to re-record the Dogs D'amour's classic 'In the Dynamite Jet Saloon' I was cautiously optimistic. The only problem with the original release was that the production was a little weak and I hoped that a sympathetic rendering of the original tracks using modern production techniques might be worth having. Sadly not, Tyla has chosen to piss all over the grave of the original, completely disrespecting it and proving once and for all that you should leave classic albums well alone.
For christs sake, he couldn't even be arsed to stick to the original track listing, there's no 'Debauchery', 'Gonna get It Right', 'Heartbreak', 'Medicine Man', and depending on the version you had, no 'Kid From Kensington'. The tracks on this version are almost unrecognisable from the originals and Tyla's vocals, never great but always with a certain rough charm, have become a terrible self parody.
The original cd remains one of my all time favourite albums, but as for this version, I wish I'd never heard it, I hate it, and I will never listen to it again.

3.0 out of 5 stars strugglin' on!, 16 April 2011
tyla decides to re visit the past with stripped down versions of some old dogs classics, sounds ok, and some of it is ok, but (and its a big but), tyla sounds like he is singing through a muddy puddle on most of it, at times its painfull, a lifetime of fags/booze has left him sounding like lemmy, rather than Ian Hunter! The more up tempo numbers work, but without the sax/piano and bam's ahead of the beat drums the joy has been removed from what was one of the best british rock albums ever, but maybe thats what tyla wants? Get the vinyl, if you must, then at least tyla might get out on the road again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different but Brilliant, 1 Sep 2011

Worth way more than one star. Yes it's different and it's not the whole of the original album but these are great versions of some classic tracks here. Going back and listening to some of the original versions of these songs I maybe controversially prefer these. Heroine and Billy Two Rivers in particular are fantastic. Once your ears adjust to Tylas pleasure-ravaged voice the idea behind doing this grows on you and continues to. What would be the point of re-recording these with only a better production to differentiate it from the original? That's like wanting your favourite band to release the same album every couple of years with different song titles instead of watching them develop. Maybe it's riskier but it's a damn sight more interesting. Approach this with just a slightly more open mind and you'll find an album that sounds mature, well produced and most importantly a joy to listen to.
