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...

Let's face it, most Greatest Hits and other compilation albums are a bit of a rip off for those who are already a fan of the band in question. Sure, they may prove a useful way to easily recommend a band to a friend, and may even increase a band's exposure to new converts, but if that is the sole aim, no extra tracks are required.

A lot of the time, even the albums which don't have all these extra tracks have a career retrospective of the band, written from a point of view the fan may not have heard of before. These days, even albums which are re-released on CD have extra tracks to encourage the existing fan to part with more of their hard earned cash. Generally, too, the most dedicated among us all fall for it. Despite what record companies may claim, this is their aim. They rely on us to keep sales up.

Sometimes, though, a band will put out a collection of rare material. It's not a greatest hits, as there aren't often any hits on there. Although some of the material may have already appeared in other countries, or hidden away on the B-Sides of singles, the album-focussed UK public will probably not own them.

Both Anthrax ("Attack of the Killer B's") and Def Leppard ("Retroactive") used this idea in 1994. Giving new insights into the bands concerned and, in Def Leppard's case, providing fans with a better album than some previous studio efforts, this was truly music for the fans. And then, in 1999, came Thunder's "The Rare, The Raw and the Rest". Beating both albums mentioned before out of sight, it's a great example of Thunder's work, and a fine pop-rock album with a distinctive blues influence.

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.

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.

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