Review

Recently recorded greatest hits from glam rock barons White Lion!

White Lion s albums Mane Attraction and Pride have combined to sell over 500,000 units!

Features new versions of the hit singles Wait and When The Children Cry!

Reworked and re-recorded to recreate White Lion s bold live sound!

A must have for any fan of metal!

Formed in Brooklyn, NY, circa 1983, White Lion struggled for stardom, finally succeeding in the latter half of the 1980s with the album Pride. Giving birth to two Top 10 hits, Wait and When The Children Cry, Pride eventually climbed the Billboard ladder to Number 11 over the course of a year. After breaking up in 1991, vocalist Mike Tramp and guitarist Vito Bratta fought constant reunion rumors, finally deciding to let White Lion rest in peace.

One full decade later, Mike Tramp revives the greatest hits of White Lion s career on Remembering White Lion. Reworked to replicate the band s raw, live energy and sound, this compilation features Tramp s visionary recreations of the band s favorite tracks. --Cleopatra Records

First of all let me start by saying that Remembering White Lion (1999) is *not* a White Lion album and has absolutely nothing to do with the amazing melodic hard rock/heavy metal band from the 80's. The only thing RWL has in common with White Lion is that their singer Mike Tramp 'tried' to re-record them on his own, without the rest of the band. And, this shows. The music on this CD does not in any way resemble what guitarist Vito Bratta and vocalist Mike Tramp wrote together back 15 years ago.
I do agree with the other reviewers that it was a big mistake of Tramp to use White Lion's name in order to get back in the spotlight. His second band Freak of Nature, while they were amazing in their own way, never peaked like White Lion did and Tramp's debut solo album Capricorn failed to bring him back to the forefront as well. Thus came the Remembering White Lion record with only Mike Tramp handling the vocals. Guitarist and main songwriter Vito Bratta is unfortunately not interested in being part of the music industry at this point of time, and I think Greg D'Angelo, the drummer, is no longer drumming. As for bassist James Lomenzo, he probably wanted to stay out of this project sensing that RWL would simply never get them anywhere without Vito's input.
So Mike did it on his own. He hired a bunch of 'nameless' musicians from his country Denmark and got them to play the WL tunes in Tramp's way (Tramp produced RWL himself). Almost none of the tracks except "She's Got Everything" sound like the original versions here. And even that song lacks in the guitar department.
But...
I still enjoy RWL. I know if there's no Vito, there can be no White Lion. It would simply be not the same. Mike Tramp attempted to re-do these tunes and he failed.

This is a very, very, solid album. I am a firm believer that a good singer, a polished front man, can front any band and still gain audience acceptance. Like Ozzy Osbourne without Black Sabbath or Sebastian Bach without SKID ROW, Mike Tramp shows he can take the old White Lion tunes and give them a fresh new approach. This album is NOT as "hard rock" as the original versions of the songs. It does not claim to be. This album IS a wonderful revamping of the old material. It is more melodic and mature than the original versions. Listen to the sound clips Amazon provides here, you'll see what I mean. Folks that just HAVE to have the heavy guitar should probably stick with the "Best of White Lion". If you feel that Mike Tramp can not possibly perform without Vito Bratta, his original guitarist and co-writer, I think you will find that this is not the case. As long as you CAN appreciate the old tunes at a slower speed you will enjoy this album immensely. If you like the more melodic end of the "hard rock" genre, check out Mike Tramp's solo effort "Capricorn" as well. While it is true that White Lion broke up and does not have any intent of regrouping at this time, many of White Lion's peers have survived the nineties. Many have released new material in the late 1990's and early 2000. Check out your favorites, you may be pleasantly surprised! Need a memory jog? Click over to my home page on Amazon. I have most of the bands reviewed or at least mentioned. Enjoy Mike Tramp's new musical vision as well as the vision of some of your other favorites who have survived and come back strong.

I got this CD only to complete my White Lion Collection. Overall, I was dissapointed in the CD as many of the songs sound so drastically different than the originals due to the fact that none of the original band members play on this CD. Anyway, at least Mike Tramp is trying to put out music again. He sould get a new band and new songs though, and see what happens. Metal will never die!!

I'll start by saying that I am a big fan of "redone" versions of songs I love. I love Bon Jovi's This Left Feels Right, and this one is enjoyable as well. I think what Mike Tramp is doing with this album is literally giving his White Lion fans a memory of what once was, only now in a newer light. The versions on this album that shine are Wait, Little Fighter, When The Children Cry, Living On The Edge, Broken Home, and Lonely Nights. Till Death Do Us Part is a big step down from the original. El Salvador isnt that much different than it's 80's original and doesn't seem to fit with the other remakes on this album.

In short, if you are a White Lion fan, you would enjoy this album. So give it a listen.

I've never been a big fan of the Deadline label. I still can't understand why they would rather have an act (L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, etc.) just re-hash their greatest hits, or make 'em sound worse by remixing them to the point of obliteration. That being said, I thought Mike Tramp's 'Remembering White Lion' is a pretty good album. While Tramp does go over familar territory, he gives some of these songs an stripped down approach. "Wait" has never sounded better and appears destined to be put on the soundtrack of an Adam Sandler movie. "Living on the Edge," and "Till Death Do Us Part," have a distinctive earthy feel to them as well. Granted, I probably could have lived without a "She's got everything' and 'War Song' remake (because the originals off Maine Attraction were too damn good). But it could have been worse.. just listen to L.A. Guns Cocked and Re-Loaded and you'll see why.
