Another meh song. Still cool to see H singing and having fun.Smith/Kotzen - Better Days EP - November 26
The full track listing is:
01. Better Days
02. Got A Hold On Me
03. Hate And Love
04. Rise Again
The final two songs on the EP were recorded at Windermere on Turks & Caicos Islands in March 2020. "Better Days" and "Got A Hold On Me" followed at The House recording studio in Los Angeles in April 2021 when SMITH/KOTZEN were finally able to reconvene after lockdown and to shoot an accompanying video for the title track. As with the "Smith/Kotzen" album, the EP was produced by Richie and Adrian, and mixed by Kevin Shirley.
I really like this track. Love the guitar tone and the production. These two really do make great radio rock. It's a shame they weren't doing this 20 years ago. And Kotzen can seriously shred!
"Better Days" will be available from all good independent record stores and available as a download.Is this going to be digital only or will there be a vinyl copy?
Has anyone seen confirmation of a CD version or a non-DRM’d uncompressed digital version being made available? So far all I see is vinyl and Apple/Amazon/Google walled garden MP3s."Better Days" will be available from all good independent record stores and available as a download.
My overall impression of Psycho Motel is that it was all good stuff but if they'd carried it on any longer, would it really have stood out from the myriad of other bands doing something similar around the same time?Yesterday I listened again to some of Adrian's solo stuff (mostly the Psycho Motel albums) and although I like A.S.A.P. and Urchin way more, I think there are some interesting and good things. Both vocalists were perfect for hard rock. If I have to choose a favorite song, this will be the bonus song from the debut album called ''(Can't) Wait''.
Btw, the guitar harmony in the song ''No Loss To Me'' (from the second album) is pure Maiden:
