REISSUE: Poison – Open Up And Say…Ahh! (30th Anniversary)

On this day 30 years ago, Poison, the premier pop-metal band of the 80’s released their breakout sophomore album, Open Up And Say…Ahh!  In celebration, the band in conjunction with Capitol/Ume, recently released a remastered reissue of the album on 180g red vinyl along with the controversial original album artwork that was banned in stores and in my home as a nine-year-old music fan (I had the censored version)!         
The 10-song album - highlighted by the #1 single and ubiquitous ultimate power ballad, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” - went 5x platinum and also featured the penultimate party anthem, “Nothin’ But A Good Time”, “Fallen Angel” and their amped-up cover of Logins And Messina’s “Mama Don’t Dance”. 
Additionally, Bret Michaels, C.C. DeVille, Rikki Rockett and Bobby Dall will also be celebrating as they tour all summer with special guests, Cheap Trick and Pop Evil.  For tour dates:
