There is no China homepage anymore....best Swiss band ever!!!

Hello, I'm tryin' to find China "live", If anybody knows where I can find it, e-mail me at: xcourganx@hotmail.com, thanks!!

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 4:12
This was my first taste of China - picked it up cheap and after I heard it I just had to have the rest. Eric St Michael's voice here is a huge drawcard - his versions of the three ballads from 'Sign in the sky' are just beautiful, especially the stunning 'So long'. The hard rockers are great too and even though I hate 'Proud Mary', China do it well. Strictly for fans of the band, but if you find this cheap it's well worth it to hear Mr St. Michaels on the band's earlier tracks.

Only six track but... what a tracks!!!!! Proud Mary performance makes me strong.

From: Erik Date: October 31, 2005 at 11:03
Today (cdr version only for know) i got China Live with Marc Storage( dont need to introduce him right ). Its a fantastic live album. Featuring songs mostly from China , a few from Krokus ( like Bedside Radio) and Hold On from Marc's solo project Blue. Anyways hear you can hear what a great musical potential this band has(d). Awesome live album. Contains 16 songs and was released on Phonag records. 9/10 Great (live) band !

From: Erik Date: November 1, 2005 at 12:01
Oh yeah there is also a cover on this album of Sammy Hagars "One way to rock". I think its of his Standing at Hampton album. And yeah i love Marcs vocals but would have loved even more to have heard one of the original singers of China on this 16 tracks long album. But hey i am not complaing Now all i need is to find an original cd

From: Mustaine_TW Date: November 28, 2005 at 0:56
Erik, does the song "One way to rock" is a bonus track for the Japanese Edition of the "Live" cd? thx!

From: Erik Date: November 28, 2005 at 2:41
Mustaine_TW actually it is not the live cd thats listed here. Its a complete different album with Marc Storage on vocals. And i got the cdr version only of a friend in the US. However i think this is only released in Europe. I will get back to you on that ! Do you need the songs ?

From: Mustaine_TW Date: November 28, 2005 at 6:48
sure! My email : dethuniverse@yahoo.com.tw , thanks a lot!!

From: Erik Date: November 28, 2005 at 7:45

This is my second China album and let me tell you it makes me wanna have all their albums!.."Rock City" is a great opening song for a live album,"Sign In The Sky" is just awesome,"So Long" probably was not the best choice for this live recording as it makes the album go down the hill a little bit even though the track is part of the glorious Sign In The Sky album (the one i have apart from this now),then comes "in The Middle Of The Night" which is just a classic China song "Shout It Out" is a very good track and probably a highlight mainly because the bass line part in the middle of the song,a thumbs up for Mr Kofmehl,"Proud Mary" is a cover song played like hell!...the re-edition has a live bonus track "One Way To Rock" a very good cover too!.90/100
