And so it begins. The flogging of a dead horse. The raping of the rotting corpse. The exploitation for monetary's sake of Lemmy from Motörhead. Congrats to Cleopatra Records for being the first label that I know of to cash in on Lemmy's passing by putting together this shoddy collection of Lemmy collaborations with people like Jake E. Lee, Ted Nugent, Richie Kotzen and Scott Ian, covering songs by AC/DC, Queen, The Beatles, Eddie Cochran and The Yardbirds. Most of these songs came from various compilations released throughout the years, and to keep things interesting, they threw in an unreleased Motörhead track (Train 'Kept A Rolling), as well as a live song from The Head Cat, the Rockabilly project Lemmy did with Slim Jim Phantom from the Stray Cats. Coming in at barely over 20 minutes in length, these 6 songs by Lemmy and Friends don't really add much to the mans legendary legacy of recorded output. Doesn't take anything away either. The only good track on here is the Motörhead one. Everything else is just bland and 'meh'. People should have their head examined for being involved with this release in any way, shape or form. For gullible purists only.
Available from Cleopatra Records. Red colored vinyl is long gone, but clear vinyl is available on Amazon (click here). "Like" Lemmy on Facebook by clicking here. "Like" Motörhead on Facebook by clicking here.
