Man, this Comp is SO DAMN good! It represents an era when bands were just absolutly raging, with tons of talent and dreams. Oh, and these bands I speak of actually sing and play there own instruments, GO FIGURE! Sorry, I thought I was yelling at a Rap fan there for a sec! Anyhow, plenty of standouts here, like Chalet's rocker, Aces & Eight's little ballad (a song that brings me way back) and the ABSOLUTE RAGING ASS KICKER by Grave Danger (and yeah, get anything by them!). Rating: a 10 for me!

From: TheRipper Date: February 8, 2003 at 3:08
Oh, and I forgot to add the song by John Corabi's (ESP, The Crue, Scream, 24/7, Union) old band Angora, which if I'm not mistaken is his first band... The pictures of them (Angora) are just great in the inserts too, so hungry for that record deal!!!

From: Trick Taylor Date: February 10, 2003 at 15:16
Nice inclusion Dan! I found this gem for $2 on cassette a few years back and it has become an all-time favorite. The music is a bit dated, but acts as the perfect chronicle of what LA sounded like in the 80's. Angora just rips through "Shake Shake" proving Corabi's talent. Many say it was Angora who should have come out of LA as big stars, not Poison. Chalet, Gran Max, and Grave Danger also provide good moments. There was a first installment of this series, but not as good as "Sons".

I love this CD. Angora was awesome. Aces & Eights were one of my favorite LA bands. I thought they were going to be huge. Grave Danger was great, too. Hell, yeah!

From: Scott Date: April 8, 2004 at 20:54
dolly_dagger - Did Aces & Eights ever release a CD? I purchased this compilation just for 'Black Roses'. If you have other songs by them I'd love to hear them!! Did any of the members join other groups? I can't find anything on the net about them.

Did the band Chalet ever do a full-scale release of any kind? Would love to hear it if they did!

From: Alton Date: May 29, 2004 at 11:59
I have a CDR of Aces & Eights demos that I got from a girl who used to work for them. It is so good. Black Roses doesn't even do them justice at all.

From: Scott Date: June 9, 2004 at 17:30
Alton - I REALLY need to hear the demo!!! Any chance you could email me?

From: hollywoop Date: June 30, 2004 at 14:09
I'd kill for a copy of that CD too I have many a trade. Please post some contact info. Aces & 8's rOcKeD!!!! (and Angora did too)

From: TIM Date: March 14, 2005 at 21:50
Hey Whiplash, Chalet never had an official release. There is a bootleg. Those guys rocked! The whole disc is excellent! Thanks Ripper!

From: David Date: March 14, 2005 at 22:47
TIM, how many songs are on the Chalet bootleg?? I would love Suncity Records to get it out!!

From: Jeane Date: April 15, 2005 at 0:45
I have video of Chalet live at The Whiskey and The Roxie

From: dugsing Date: September 17, 2009 at 23:58
I have no idea if anyone will ever read this, but what the hell... My old friend Chris (guitarist/Chalet) just sent me this link. This is Doug (lead vox/Chalet) I would love to see the video you have Jeane. David, if you're still interested in releasing something, maybe Chris & I can hook you up! Thanks for all the good words guys and gals. My personal email is I think I have an old cassette (believe it or not) that still works, and has these cuts on it. It would be THE original copy made from my 4 track (cassette) I recorded this in my living room for God's sake. 1987 I believe. Not bad for a "Hey let's do some recording today guys). Anyone reading this, shoot me an email...
