The final result seems to differ from what was initially planned, as it includes almost exclusively It Bites material. I have played some of the tracks on the band camp site, but I don`t quite see, in what respect they surpass the originals.

I'm not familiar with much of It Bites' catalogue. They weren't popular here in the states. I did get to see them a few years ago at CalProg here in SoCal and they were quite good. Regarding the Vampires album, I've never heard the It Bites version so this comes to me exclusively as a Francis Dunnery release, and a pretty good one too.

I agree, but if you like the old It Bites stuff, I recommend you to buy this box set:

It includes the four albums of the Dunnery era. It was you, who drew my attention to it last year and I have played it to bits since then.

I enjoy listening to the It Bites 2011 live album 'It Happened One Night.' I realize Francis isn't on it. Since I came into their catalogue during the release of The Tall Ships album, I've pretty much gotten used to listening to them without Francis. I'm more familiar with his work with The Syn.

Vampyres will give you quite a good impression, how the original It Bites sounded like, because it is sort of a greatest hit album.

I also love the current line up, but imo their newer releases are from being as intense and enjoyable as the old stuff.

I watched a bio on Janis Joplin last night. Just had to hear her this morning. I think this album is the best representation of her as a blues rock singer. I remember listening to it for the first time on vinyl in the early 70s. Great stuff! Big Brother and the Holding Company was a great band too. Highly recommended.

I love how you can hear the changes as the songs progress between the band with Neal, then with Nick, then with Ted. Great stuff!
