The added EP makes a nice bonus to this absolutely essential Party Rock album.

Despite a steep learning curve that included playing with Michael Bolton (on his 'Everybody's Crazy' tour!), Joe Lynn Turner, an early version of White Lion and replacing Billy Sheehan in Talas, New York bassist Bruno Ravel still had no outlet for the kind of songs he wanted to write. So, in 1987 he got together with long-time friend and drummer Steve West and the duo formed Danger Danger, eventually arriving at a recording line-up that consisted of Prophet singer/drummer Ted Poley, keyboard player Kasey Smith and guitarist Tony "Bruno" Rey. Unfortunately Rey was also a member of Saraya and opted to throw in his lot with the Female-Fronted Rockers when Danger Danger's album was all but complete, so the band brought in phenomenal guitarist Andy Timmons and the classic line-up was complete.

Originally released by CBS in 1989, 'Danger Danger' was a Mecca for lovers of simple and catchy Hard Rock, with huge hooks, soaring vocals, sublime instrumentation and a collection of earworm choruses that have maintained its status as one of the most well-loved albums of its type. Obviously 'Naughty Naughty', 'Bang Bang' and 'Rock America' are the big hitters here, but the ballads 'Don't Walk Away' and 'One Step From Paradise' are equally memorable, whereas slightly less obvious fare like the punchy 'Under The Gun', the brilliant 'Boys Will Be Boys' and the infectious 'Feels Like Love' have also earned their regular places in the live set over the years. Lance Quinn's production still stands up today and the re-master adds clarity and power to an already great sounding release.

If the original album didn't have enough Timmons for you – he only played two solos on the album – the five bonus tracks are the whole of the 'Down And Dirty Live' radio EP with storming versions of '...Boys', '...Bang' and '...Naughty', along with the Timmons' instrumental 'Groove Or Die' and Derringer's 'Rock 'N' Roll Hoochie Koo'.

Although not that hard to get hold of in its original form, the added EP makes a nice bonus to this absolutely essential Party Rock album.
