Skid Row – B-Side Ourselves (Release Year – 1992)
B-Side Ourselves is only a 5 song EP, so it can hardly be considered to be a full length release.
On this disc, you get 4 studio tracks, and one live cut.
The band sounds great, but as with most covers discs, you enjoyment from this release will depend on how much you like the original songs.
There is a solid but not stellar duet with Rob Halford on Delivering the Goods.
The cover of the Jimi Hendrix song Little Wing is a very decent rendition. I don’t think most people realize they released a video for this song.
B-Side Ourselves clocks in under 20 minutes. You can find this one for next to nothing on the web. Did this disc start the cover disc trend? I am not sure, but I am positive this offering by Skid Row led to more releases of the same nature.
