Existing comments about this CD

From: TIM Date: September 2, 2002 at 13:29
This album has moments but I thought it was overrated. None of the songs really stood out. I've listened to it 3 times and it hasn't gotten any better. Some folks claim this is one of the best albums ever. They say it sounds like D2's debut. In ways it does but I don't like it as well. Has someone else heard this?

From: chadwik Date: October 30, 2002 at 21:06
I saw these guys years ago in Iowa--they played covers--but they plyed ghost town park and that was eveyone's fav---I wondered what happened to these guys!!??

From: The Fizzy One Date: October 30, 2002 at 21:33
What, couldn't they get Brent Estlund to shuck his last name and throw in with them? "Come on, man, we'll be just like the Ramones!" "Ah, no thanks ..." Anyway, littering's only a misdemeanor, and this album sounds pretty harmless as well.

From: jayster Date: November 11, 2002 at 3:42
where can i find this cd?

From: raven Date: November 16, 2002 at 15:46
I saw Litterer at the legendary Fox Lake Ballroom several times. Where's that? Ask David Ellefson of Megadeth!

From: tangusmgee69@ya Date: November 27, 2002 at 19:04
i used to go see these guys all the time in minnesota...great, great live performances. where are they playing next and when?

From: Johnny RnR Date: January 18, 2003 at 9:32
I used to go see these guys all the time in Iowa, at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. Good drinking music.

From: Missi Date: March 18, 2003 at 0:20
These are some of the nicest guys in the business these days. Always made me feel like a friend rather than a fan

From: David Date: March 22, 2003 at 10:44
Johnny RnR, I've always wondered what good drinking music is, does it mean you have to be drunk to like it???

From: JohnnyRnR Date: April 9, 2003 at 8:33
David, yes you had to be drunk to like this band, and being underage at the time, it wasn't easy! Luckily I made friends with certain bartenders!

From: Pam Date: August 11, 2003 at 11:27
I personally never had to be drunk to enjoy Litterer! Always great rockin' music and even better live!! Sure do miss 'em!

From: cemrn Date: October 22, 2003 at 23:21
This band was a blast to see live. They aren't still playing are they? I don't know what made me think to look them up tonight. I used to hang out with this Charles City band 1988-1992....gee Dave are you wondering who this is????

From: MN Maniac Date: October 30, 2003 at 1:28
Wow! Talk about a flashback! I used to play these guys on radio station KRIT ("Super 97") in Fort Dodge, IA. Back in 1987, when they were huge locally. Saw them at several area bars & always a great show. Interviewed Steve Litterer on-the-air once. Damn nice guy who loved to play his music. Glad to know they're still around after all these years! Drew

From: Bob Stinson Date: November 19, 2003 at 17:01
Good to see folks still remember the Litterer band. Always Nice folks.Anybody remember there friends from the South who toured the same area in the 80's called the Messendger Band?. I due since I was their road manager for years. I ended up back in the South late Eighties and ended up married to an Iowa lady from Kanahwa and make up up their a few times a year. Sure miss the Bootleggers club in Algona. Anybody remember me or the band send me and email: bobs@airwaysfreight.com

From: Dawn Date: November 25, 2003 at 21:03
I loved this band from the first time I saw them in the early 80's. I remember well all the times my friends and I would road trip from town to town and bar to bar all through out IA just to see them. I loved them then and I love them now! Thanks for the memories guys!

From: Spencer JT Date: January 10, 2004 at 4:16
I remember road tripin all over the frickin place to see these guys. Fox Lake, The Lakes, Spencer, Fort Dodge, all over. Got busted one night, and sang "Shook Me all Night Long" another (birthday song). Some good f'ng times. Love to see a reunion show sometime.

From: phototom Date: March 13, 2004 at 23:29
Wow! Just the name brings back allot of thoughts. Had some friends that opened up for them in the early 90's in SW Minnesota. Lots of roadtrips to see them. Met Dave Ellefson from Megadeath at on of their shows at the Sioux Valley Log Cabin. To much drinking and good times.

From: marines31 Date: March 21, 2004 at 13:28
I saw them many times at the Fox Lake Ballroom. I'm from St.James now in South Carolina. Does anyone know where I can get the Romancing the Night album?

From: Terri Date: March 30, 2004 at 2:19
Wonder if the band ever reads these! I used to "follow" Litterer, too!Dave was my bud! I enjoyed them when you could dance to the music. The last time I saw them was at the Surf Ballroom; more like a concert than a dance. Haven't heard Romancing the Night, but own the other one. Fave song,"Never Give Up", isn't on either! :-( Last I heard, they were still playing some, but Dave wasn't with them anymore. Still have the music shop in Charles City to the best of my knowledge.Terri (Mark's friend)

From: pamjumps Date: April 10, 2004 at 21:18
Anyone remeber the ShowBoat? We did the road trippin thing as much as we could to see this band. Fox Lake, Lynd, Gibbon, Charles City, Hatfield. They were great people and always treated us so well. you're right bout the concert vs dance thing. Standing in the front row was the best. Good times! Some of my favorite memories are of this great group of people. I would love love love to see a reuinion concert too.

From: Amy Date: April 12, 2004 at 17:22
Oh my GOD - this is so cool to read - these people were my buds - road-tripped all over to see them - Showboat, Hatfield, Lynd, The Blitz, down to Charles City for their annual 4th of July bash - those were the days. Still talk to Steve and his wife occasionally. Would LOVE it if they did a reunion show?

From: brian Date: April 16, 2004 at 23:22
saw them many times at the surf, bancroft ballroom, duncan dance hall, fox lake, etc. called steve one night on a whim and left a message on his machine. couldn't believe it when he called me back and talked to me for over an hour. the guy (and the whole band) has class. i used to get him bacardi cokes and hide behind the speakers and hold it around the corner. as soon as he saw it he'd drink it thru the straw and knew that i was there. great times. i'd love to see them again!

From: Dustin Date: July 31, 2004 at 6:42

From: Teri Date: October 10, 2004 at 7:54
ooops-my email got cut off...it is terioke@mchsi.com if anyone knows if they are ever gonna play again

From: Timing Chain 66 Date: October 19, 2004 at 2:07
These guys seem to suffer from a bit of an identity crisis musically at times, but overall I enjoyed this compilation. They have a strong Night Ranger vibe going on and the songs that are immediately similar to that classic outfit are both enjoyable and memorable. Also tends to fluxuate between rare and not so rare, so don't pay too much if prices go up on-line. They seem to always come down again. Good cd. 7/10.

From: m Date: October 20, 2004 at 12:35
Carleen did not lose two fingers but she did get hurt and recovered to 90%. She is still able to play every bit as before and now plays to her two children.

From: anewfan Date: December 28, 2004 at 15:25
Just hearing this group for the first time and i can say i love them :-)

From: Geoff Date: January 16, 2005 at 1:55
This one didn't move me at all. Decent AOR with a bunch of nice keyboard driven songs but didn't really have anything I enjoyed on it.

From: Selby Date: April 19, 2005 at 12:51
We used to follow them around southwest MN during high school - Valhalla, Fox Lake, Showboat Ballroom. I acted as a roadie for them after they played our homecoming dance (senior year '88). My biggest problem - I can't find anywhere to buy a CD under $50 (and that's in Germany). Can anyone hook me up?

From: lakeBenton Date: April 20, 2005 at 10:03
yo. i loved seeing these guys in lynd, showboat, and surrounding area. i'd drive hours if they played a reunion. carleen, if you're reading this, i'm sorry about your accident. you guys were always a class act and took the time to hang out and be kool with your fans. my rock n roll dreams never came true, but you guys always supported us. you even said we could open for you, but we never got our crap together. you guys rock. what are you doing these days? email me. donlytle@mail.com

These guys used to be my favorite band. The CD I had was broken during a move. Can anyone hook me up with a copy of the Romancing the night cd? I'd be extremely grateful. Thanks in advance. You can email justuptome@yahoo.

Only one good song on this baby "Romancing the night" The rest is very heavy. But if you like it heavy then Litterer are a band for you. I love the song "Romancing the night" it's romantic and fast at the same time. Your girl with beg to have sex with you when she hear it.!! HEHE

From: metalguf Date: February 27, 2006 at 3:51
Your girl will beg you to have sex. (Romancing the night)

From: Pittroll Date: July 5, 2006 at 20:45
I started out going to watch the shows in 1986. In 1988 I joined the band part time as a crew member and training to take over the lighting area. In 1989 I joined the crew after Bruce Litterer quit I took over full time lighting.

From: JonnyDeMartini Date: December 26, 2006 at 19:06
I have been looking for a long time for the 1995 compilation album and finally found a very nice person in Iowa who gave it to me, FREE! What an awesome Christmas present. Nice to be able to relive the "Litterer Days" again in digital sound. It is indeed too bad that they never got a major major record deal and the MTV video too. Music like this should be produced today. Litterer was ahead of its time and had it not been for being from Iowa would have gone some place IMO. ROCK ON!!!

From: 1988BAND Date: April 25, 2007 at 12:31
LITTER BAND ROCKED,wow bean long time but i still listen to the cassatte ROCK THIS CITY,SHOW BAOT was wild sad part is they leveled darn building back in the late 90's.any one with cd's, video's please email me what you got jeffatstarauto@speednet.com PS. i heard a roomer on 4/23/07 LITTER BAND was coming to Hatfield MN for a gig ?????

From: gpeter Date: May 18, 2007 at 17:57
Does anyone know where I can get any of the Litterers cd's? I would like them for my iPod. That would be Cool if they played the Holyhock again.

From: juan carlos Date: June 24, 2007 at 11:43
Que gran discazo de MHR/AOR, tremenda sorpresa. Suena al album debut de Danger Danger? y sí pero más por el voceras que tiene un parecido vocal a Ted Poley clarísimo, el 1º de D2 es de mis favoritas de toda mi vida, Romancing the Night? realmente muy bueno, no al nivel pero vaya que ni tan lejos. "Live on Love" te previene de los siguientes temas, el album en sí está cargado de muy buenos temas al nivel de la inicial. 14 temas y ningún Filler, que mas pedir?. Súper-Recomendable. 9.5/10

From: Wildmanz Date: July 26, 2007 at 15:16
I was lucky enough to catch the Litterer band at Waterloo, Janesville, The Surf Ballroom. I purchased some Par 64s from the band. Awsome talented guys. Hope they come back for some shows! I was born In Charles City. Now Live In Osage Beach, Missouri

From: drlave Date: August 14, 2007 at 17:01
Did any one watch the Bill Engvall show on July 31. It was the "how I met your mother episode" and in the background you could totally see a poster of the Litterer Band from "Rock This City". On a different wall was the poster from She's "So Dangerous". Awesome flashback. Wish they would've played some of their music instead of "Wham".

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: August 17, 2007 at 3:15
GOOD CD / 80/100 Typical late 80's us AOR/HAIR METAL Like DANGER DANGER with TED POLEY THERE IS AN EDITION WITH BOTH"romancing the night" and "rock city"in the same CD For the DD/SAVANNAH fans

From: Japangea Date: November 17, 2007 at 3:18
I just grabbed a copy at the 2nd hands today by knowing nothing about the band but the cover looks great and it makes me buy as it was only less $4.Seems they were very good looking guys but why they were not appeared on the cover on this 2nd album? That's wasteful.I really love to buy unknown bands only by seeing both the cover and song titles and sometimes it makes sence.

From: Speed Racer Date: September 7, 2008 at 0:01
Man I love those guys. I remember a friends band opening for them a few times in the early 90's. Damn shame they never got the big break. I've been tryin to find a copy of Romancing the Night for years. Anyone know where I can get one? All I got a a couple songs on a old dubbed tape which is not in that good of shape. If you can help me out email me or leave a message on here. Email is hurricaneracingteam@yahoo.com

I also saw the Bill Engvall Show when they had the two Litterer posters on the wall of Bill's apartment. I had to pause my tivo and go into my game room where I have my Litterer poster (autographed by the entire band). I have the white one. I used to go see these guys in Tyndall SD at Groveland Park. We also would roadtrip to the Skylon Ballroom in Hartington NE and I made a couple of trips to the Fox Lake Ballroom. I still have my cassette tapes, but would love to get the CDs. Hard to find. Contacted Catamount Records once to see about a re-issue, but no luck. Spent a lot of time in the front row, these guys are the kind of band that took the time to get to know their fans. They always remembered me when they saw me head banging in the front row. Sure do miss them.

From: fozcin1 Date: June 8, 2009 at 8:07
A copy of "Romancing the Night" sold last night on ebay for $168.00. Way over my budget so someone else got it. Hey Catamount Records, it might be time for a re-issue.

From: swillmert Date: July 4, 2009 at 9:13
I used to party with these guys as well. I probably got drunk with some of you! Got a copy of the CD awhile back from their studio manager. If anyone needs a copy, I have MP3's of their songs. Email me at junkmail at willmert.com

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 7, 2012 at 20:35
Some songs of the band's "Rock This City" album appear on this one too plus obviously "new ones"...the same as the one i mentioned is what this album is based about(good vocalist in Mr Tom Litterer,good songs,solid choruses and so on)..."Live On Love","She's So Dangerous","City Lights","Are You Lonely","High Roller","It Ain't Easy"....LET'S PARTY!!!...recommended...89/100
