Hello! Today the post man delivered my CD "Mad Bad and Dangerous to Know"!!!! I bought it in ebay. I'm very happy, because I finally have complete my The Cross discography in original. Sorry for my english, I'm from Spain I have the "Shove it" and "MBDTK" in original CDs, and Blue Rock in original Cassette.
It seeml like most everyone likes Blue Rock the best but Mad Bad has some great songs. I have a concert tape where they did Old Men[lay down] and the beat was great. Also liar, Top of the World Ma,Power to Love and Final Destination.
I actually really like their cover of Foxey Lady. I don't usually like it when bands try to sound exactly like the original, but Roger seems to be good at changing his voice to fit in with the song, especially in his version of Racing In The Street (Bruce Springsteen).
I thought Foxy Lady was well covered, in keeping with the Hendrix original but still sounding like the Cross. Live it was a little more bombastic, but not much. Roger's done sopme great covers - two of my favourites being "Keep On Running" and "Keep A Knocking".
