Default Poison - First 3 albums digitally remastered

I didn't see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd let you all know.

As POISON raises the roofs of more than 50 concert venues across the U.S. this summer on the band's VH1 Classic- and Live Nation-presented "20 Years Of Rock Tour", Capitol/EMI Music Catalog Marketing is preparing for the August 1 reissue of POISON's first three multi-platinum albums in expanded 20th Anniversary Edition CD packages. Digitally remastered with rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks, POISON's triple-platinum 1986 album debut, "Look What The Cat Dragged In", the septuple-platinum "Open Up And Say ... Ahh!" and the platinum "Flesh & Blood" will be released in commemorative 20th anniversary CD packages, honoring the band's exciting and enduring career and their ever-growing tally of more than 25 million albums and DVDs sold around the world.

POISON's 20th anniversary catalog campaign began this spring with Capitol/EMI's April 4 release of a new hits collection, "The Best Of Poison: 20 Years Of Rock", which debuted at #17 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, marking the band's first return to the Top 20 since 1993. The CD packs 18 hits, including the band's explosive new version of GRAND FUNK RAILROAD's "We're An American Band", produced by Don Was (ROLLING STONES, BOB DYLAN). "The Best Of Poison: 20 Years Of Rock - Deluxe Tour Edition" was released on May 16, on the eve of the band's national anniversary tour. The expanded CD/DVD package contains the 18-track CD and a companion DVD with the band's most rocking music videos and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of "We're An American Band".

All Deluxe Tour Edition CD/DVD packages for "The Best Of Poison: 20 Years Of Rock" include a code for POISON fans to logon to www.20yearsofrock.com to buy one concert ticket and receive one free ticket for the "20 Years Of Rock Tour" as a thank you to fans. "POISON is bringing the kind of summer tour package that rock fans have been waiting for," said Live Nation Senior Vice President of Touring, Bruce Kapp. "We are so happy that both POISON and CINDERELLA decided to spend their 20th birthdays on the road — it's a terrific tour at a great price." To coincide with the bands' 20th anniversaries, and keeping with POISON's tradition of staying loyal to their music and their fans, lawn tickets for each of the outdoor amphitheatre dates are priced at $20 or less.

I only own their new Greatest Hits album and had a CD copy of Open Up And Say Aah! before it went missing. They're really good. Not IMO quite as good as Jovi, Leppard, Skid Row and Mötley Crüe but they got some great songs. But then again, I've only heard OUASA and the 2006 Greatest Hits album. I love Every Rose, Nothing But A Good Time , Unskinny Bop and Bad To Be Good.

I love those tracks, plus Fallen Angel. I only bought one of their best of's a week and a half ago. It gets plenty of play time, but in between a lot of Cheap Trick.
