is this the boss that had some members that were later in b.b. steal?

Boss originally formed in Adelaide, Australia, during the late 1970s. Kevin Pratt (guitar) and Craig Csongrady (vocals) moved to Sydney in 1980. Boss were like a cross between Ratt, Def Leppard, and Bad Company. The band were very frustrated with the production sound of their RCA 1984 Step On It album. Due to their drummer being ill, the band used a drum machine on Step On It! In 1988, Boss were now called BB Steel. With the production aid of Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen, the band released

With the production aid of Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen, the band released On The Edge. This CD was heavily molded on Def Leppard's Hysteria album. In retrospect, Boss originally wanted to be a successful Dokken / Ratt type band. However, by 1988 the band realised that a Def Leppard type AOR sound might provide them with success.

I know the band only from one song that came on a copilation lp together with other songs from STRYPER, ACCEPT and VICTORY. I didnt like that song very much. I think BB STEAL are far better.

From: purrfect-kat Date: May 21, 2003 at 14:10
Over priced and overrated . . . "Step On it" is the only thing to do with it.

From: phaffas Date: July 28, 2003 at 23:34
was this ever officially released on cd? or just vinyl?

From: Killjoy Date: August 26, 2003 at 7:49
Actually a very good band. Some great arse kicking songs, but the record company killed them. Sold 80,000+ copies in Japan and a similar amount in Germany....they asked the record company if they could tour both those countries....no luck....so they were effectively dead in the water. BB Steel was the spin off band with the lead singer and the two guitarists....but by that stage, they were screwed. A great pity.

From: jetboy Date: September 8, 2003 at 8:26
Phaffas, this album has never been released officially on CD.

From: De-Arrow Date: November 26, 2003 at 22:37
Pardon the pun but a great kick ass band. Sadly they were always seemed to be in the shadows of Heaven but certainly bring back fond memories. Kevin Pratt is a gun guitarist! Csongrady also quite talented on vocals. Interesting to hear him do the Plantesqe shreaks in Boss and ditch that style with BB Steal. I guess Boss were somewhat like an early Leppard.

From: Fat Freddy Date: February 6, 2006 at 22:07
I haven't heard this album in 20 years (a friend in high school had it on vinyl, if I remember correctly) but as soon as I saw the album cover I thought "Hmmm, one of the best leg/high heel fetish album covers EVER."

From: WASP1 Date: June 28, 2006 at 12:00
I bought it on cd from Retrospect. It's decent with some vocals and strong riffs here and there. The drums are a bit of a problem and the guitar should have been raised up somein the mix. RCA didn't seem to know what to do with a lot of the metal bands they had in the 1980's.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 23, 2006 at 15:37
hey what happen here!!! this one is a Great Hard Rock/AOR album, simple como eso ahora de los boys que an escrito arriba De-Arrow es el mas curtido en la materia personalmente e tratado con el y su opinion asi lo demuestra el resto me pone cosas como que le gusta la cubierta por la pierna otros solo an escuchado un tema por favor!!! no digan tonteras, este es una gema por todo lo que significa si hay un estilo que personalmente considero superior a todos los demas dentro del Rock ese es...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 23, 2006 at 15:48
... el Hard Rock cruzado con el AOR y este album cumple esa norma la s bandas que practican un estilo asi son simplemente Brutales y si son de la trilogia 84-85-86 puta madre que mas se puede pedir esa trilogia de los 80's jamas sera comparada donde salieron los mejores albums que tendra la humanidad toda la esencia de los 80's esta clavada en esos aņos como quisiera una semana solo una y volver a esa epoca y si el pago seria mi vida que asi sea, esta gema relanzada por retrospect el 2005 9.5/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 27, 2010 at 21:01
This band has some similarities in sound to Krokus and a bit just a bit of AC/DC here and there but strongly Krokus 4 sure(well Krokus and AC/DC is like saying the same thing vocally talking but the second one has gotten all the wordlwide recognition because they are just amazing!)..."Kick A** (Rock'n'Roll)" & "That Woman" pretty rock the nation wildly!,"Hard 'N Fast" is a highlight,"Take It Or Leave It" is a solid number,quite liked it and "Cry Cry" is another track that i enjoyed a lot...acceptable album!.84/100
