Editorial Reviews

Rock guitar legend, Tommy Bolin will be honored with a box set release of his lauded solo release THE DEFINITIVE TEASER COLLECTOR's EDITION that features a re-mastered version of his classic album plus 2-CDs of outtakes and alternates, and a 2-CD Deluxe version of Great Gypsy Soul; a collection of Bolin songs recorded by a top notch roster of players who signed on to pay tribute to Bolin. Produced by Greg Hampton and Warren Haynes, it s a remarkable project that brings together major players who actually perform alongside Tommy Bolin s playing and vocals from the recording outtakes to Teaser. Peter Frampton, Warren Haynes (a key supporter of the project), Nels Cline, Steve Lukather, Steve Morse, Brad Whitford, Joe Bonamassa, John Scofield, Derek Trucks, Glenn Hughes and Myles Kennedy all contribute to this amazing project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaser 5 disc boxset, worth it! September 5, 2012
By Lance
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The new 5 disc boxset of Teaser is worth picking up. The 3 disc Teaser digipak is included, along with the 2 disc Great Gypsy Soul inside a cardboard sleeve, like the one pictured in description. The remaster of Teaser is simply awesome, sounds so clear and vibrant, youd think Tommy was in the room. The bonus discs included in the digipack are great sounding as well, although most of these tracks are on the Teaser Deluxe, and some off of Whips and Roses, a few are different versions not available before, so great investment. The Great Gypsy Soul 2 disc set has been available since earlier this year 2012, guitar players will love it, no doubt, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Joe Bonamassa, Brad Whitford, Peter Frampton, Glenn Hughes tear up songs from Teaser, Flying Fingers off of disc 2 is one hell of a jam by Tommy Bolin, this shows what this mofo was capable of! Gone but not forgotten, do yourself a favor and give this boxset a listen, you wont be the same afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tommy Bolin's Masterpiece Re-mastered September 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The re-mastered version of Tommy Bolin's masterpiece album "Teaser" has finally been produced, courtesy of the good people at Samson Records and 429 Records (and thanks to the loving efforts of Johnnie Bolin and Greg Hampton). The LP was remixed by Greg Hampton and Jeremy Mackenzie, significantly reducing the sound gaps between low and high volume points, resulting in a much more listenable album. (The original album's quiet passages were almost un-hearable at times, then suddenly burst into higher volumes.) A fabulous booklet of photos has also been provided, contributed by Tommy's estate.

The album itself is a masterpiece, 9 songs that perfectly illustrate why Tommy Bolin was hailed by many as "the next Jimi Hendrix". Sadly, the much loved songwriter and guitarist died a year or so after Teaser's 1975 release. Tommy Bolin's genius was that he combined prodigious talent with an unerring sense of taste, not often found in a single package. (Many brilliantly talented guitarists can't help but lean a little toward the bombastic.) For example, my favorite song for the past four decades, Dreamer, is perfectly constructed from start to finish - it's still astounding that Tommy was just 24 when he crafted his parts. Besides Tommy's "standard" friends and players (Jeff Cook, John Tesar, and Stanley Sheldon), folks who played on various songs include David Sanborn, Jeff Porcaro, Prairie Prince, Phil Collins, Jan Hammer, and more. Why? Because young Tommy had the confidence and audacity to visit neighboring studios and simply ask them to play!

The 5-CD definitive collector's set includes 2 CDs of outtakes and alternate versions of songs. Most of the songs feature extensive guitar work because Tommy was less concerned with the singing they'd eventually have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Music, Excellent Value!! September 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This excellent package can be bought for less than $20 for five cds, need I say more. This has to be one of the best deals out there considering all of the overpriced Immersion box sets released in the last year or so. I bought this one mainly for the Teaser remaster( I have the Whips & Roses cds) & it doesn't disappoint & as an added bonus we get some great reworkings of TB by an all-star cast. The only thing that could improve this set would be some unreleased live TB from the Teaser era but I doubt there's much left out there in the vaults that hasn't already been mined! An excellent package that honors Tommy's legacy very nicely, lets hope a similar release is in the works for Private Eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic March 8, 2013
By DHL
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Both of Tommy Bolin's albums (Teaser and Private Eyes) have been favorites of mine since I bought vinyl versions back in the mid 70s. It's too bad he left us at a very young age with only those two albums. The CD versions did not sound as good (from an audiophile perspective) as the vinyl versions, but like a lot of music, I lived with the shorcomings.

After doing a search on Amazon for "remastered" versions of my favorite stuff, I ran into this collection. I did not have high expectations for this set, because most re-masters done on other music I love (Pink Floyd comes to mind, my early 80's CDs sound just about as good as recent re-masters) are mediocre at best.

Well, be prepared for a very pleasant surprise. This set is extremely well recorded, and the "outtakes" in most cases are MUCH better than the cuts on the released albums.

First let me comment on Teaser re-mastered. It is a bit cleaner than the original (I am comparing to an original CD released in the mid 80s), with a bit more space and 3 dimensionality, cleaner vocals, and a bit cleaner symbols and bells etc. OK, but not mind blowing.

But what really surprised me was disc 2 and disc 3 of the alternates and outtakes. WOW. The recording quality is even better than the re-master with large front to back depth and side to side breadth of the soundstage. And the music itself blows away the versions that were released IMHO. For example, there is a 15 minute version of Wild Dogs that is incredible (except for a short section where Tommy Bolin screws with the lyrics), but it is one of those long jams that you know will never make it to the record or on air play.

The remastered Teaser album was a job well done. The Bolin tracks with guest guitarists was a gem! A great job of studio wizardry!

I'm not reviewing the music as everybody buying this already is familiar with the album. It's the sound quality that's the problem, this album really needs a remix. Read more
