Poison Double Dip with “Double Dose”

leave a comment »

There comes a time in every music collector’s life where we utter, “Another (name of artist) compilation?!” The time has come to put Poison in those parentheses; their latest collection is due in stores on May 3.

Double Dose: Ultimate Hits does have a lot of worthy material for new fans. In addition to collating all the band’s notable singles, it includes a fair amount of album cuts and at least one or two non-LP tracks that were scooped up on reissues or prior compilations. But for hardcore fans, there’s nothing new – this is yet another in a long line of compilations, particularly after one that came out not too long ago. But if you need a primer for the band’s upcoming tour – or a reminder of something other than Bret Michaels’ questionable musical activities at present – here you go.

Double Dose is yours to buy at Amazon; check the track list after the jump.
