WAYSTED - WonT Get Out Alive: Waysted Volume One 1983-1986

Four CD set containing three studio albums, one live and mini-album from the early 80s. Pete Way first came to prominence as the bass guitarist in UFO. Through various highs and lows, from forming in 1968, through the peak years of the 1970s and into the early 1980s, Pete eventually quit UFO in 1982, forming Waysted in 1983. Teaming up with singer Fin Muir, Waysted was completed by Ronnie Kayfield on lead guitar, Frank Noon on drums and Pete''s former UFO band-mate, Paul Raymond, on rhythm guitar and keyboards. Waysted''s well received debut for Chrysalis Records, the self-explanatory ''Vices'' (CD1) kicks off with the stage favourite and the band''s calling card, ''Love Loaded'', followed by ''Women In Chains'' and ''Sleazy''. That debut here is expanded with six alternative versions. ''Vices'' was followed by a mini-album, the self-titled ''Waysted'' (CD2) in 1984, featuring ''Won''t Get Out Alive'' and ''The Price You Pay''. While on tour in 1984 supporting the mini- album, the band were captured on stage in Cardiff on ''You Won''t Get Out Alive'' (CD2). With a set that includes covers of UFO''s ''Only You Can Rock Me'' and ''Too Hot To Handle'', as well as songs from their first two releases, Waysted now featured three former members of UFO, with Paul "Tonka" Chapman on lead guitar, and Andy Parker on drums. It was the trio of Paul Chapman, Pete Way and Fin, joined by Humble Pie''s Jerry Shirley on drums, that recorded ''The Good Bad And The Waysted'' (CD3) in 1985. As well as ''Hang ''Em High'' and ''Manuel'', the album features the original version of ''Heaven Tonight''. Sealing a new deal with EMI''s Parlophone Records, Waysted released ''Save Your Prayers'' (CD4) in 1986. With Way and Chapman now joined by Danny Vaughn on vocals and John Ditedoro on drums, they re-recorded ''Heaven Tonight'' for single release. Waysted initially called it a day following the release ''Save Your Prayers'', but the next chapter in the Waysted story is captured on the HNE Recordings release ''Heroes Die Young: Waysted Volume Two 2000-2007''.
