Styx Confuses “Re-Recorded” with “Regeneration”

via press release: Styx will have its entire career encapsulated within the 16 tracks of Regeneration, Volume I & II on a double-disc to be released via Eagle Rock Entertainmenton October 4. [MSRP $17.98]

With over 30 million records sold in North America alone, Styx is one of the most beloved rock bands on the planet. Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd Sucherman have been together longer than any other lineup in the band’s 40-year existence.

In addition to thirteen Styx classics and a brand new song “Difference In The World,”  Regeneration, Volume I & II also includes interpretations of “High Enough,” and “Coming Of Age,” originally recorded by Damn Yankees, which featured Shaw, along with Night Ranger’s Jack Blades, Ted Nugent and drummer Michael Cartellone.” The band had originally re-recorded these acclaimed anthems to sell only at their live shows, as they continued to tour the globe and introduce a new generation of fans to their chart-topping hits. Now, for the first time, this music is being made commercially available.

Matt Wardlaw: I know Rob Smith will enjoy hearing these.

Chris Holmes: What is this? A live album? A compilation?

Wardlaw: Re-recordings.

Brian Boone: I hate regenerations. Tommy Shaw should never have replaced Tom Baker.

Dw. Dunphy: Three things you don’t actually HAVE to do:

1. Fold your pizza slice.
2. Follow “depth” with “breadth,” because nobody really says “breadth” anyway, you hack.
3. Re-record your old vocalist’s songs with the new vocalist.

Chris Holmes: You don’t have to fold your pizza slice, but not doing so makes you a barbarian.

Dave Lifton: Styx can’t fold their pizza. They’re from Chicago, and are therefore forced to eat that shitty casserole that passes for pizza here.

Matt Springer: I will kill you while you sleep, Lifton.
