Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Formed by a group of aspiring rock musicians from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania who moved to Los Angeles, California in search of fame, Poison's music reflected its pedigree. Poison's roots, and those of glam metal in general, lay in America's East, and in particular, the sounds and images associated with New York's New York Dolls and KISS, Boston's Aerosmith, Illinois' Cheap Trick and Baltimore's Kix. These influences were transplated to California in the late 1970s, mutated following the release of Van Halen's debut in 1978, and ultimately ignited into a colourful music scene on L.A's Sunset Strip in the 1980s. 20 Years Of Rock features a cover of Grand Funk's 'We're An American Band' and was produced by Don Was and the tracks 'The Last Song and 'Shooting Star' which are not featured on their last greatest hits CD. Capitol. 2006.
