The DDR Music Group‘s website indicates (with slight edits):
“Paul Shortino & The DDR Music Group are at again! Hot on the heels of the wildly successful return of Rough Cutt and their new album “III’ as well as his new group BlueDahlia (featuring Tracy G of Dio) and their self-titled release comes the long awaited reissue of the super group Badd Boyz!
Featuring Paul on vocals as well as ex-members of Michael Schenker Group, House of Lords, Quiet Riot and the Scorpions, Badd Boyz encompass everything a melodic hard rock group could entail. Flawless vocals, a dream team of guitarists any group would jump at the chance to have and most importantly infectious sing along anthems that will recapture the 80’s and 90’s as good as anyone can remember it.
Shortino, Mitch Perry, Sean McNabb and Michael Guy deliver 80’s inspired rock at its finest with the gems “Leave It To The Law”, “No Time For Cryin’”, “I Don’t Want To Hear Your Heart Break” a well as the lead single “Straight To My Heart”. This, in our option is pure rock gold that’s been dying to be let out of its cage and fly high into the collections of fans worldwide.
A majority of the record was recorded at Pasha Music House in Hollywood where Mötley Crüe recorded parts of their 4x platinum opus “Theatre of Pain”.
This album has never been released in the United States and fetches a pretty penny on the secondary markets…till now! Retitled, repackaged and remastered from the ground up, Paul and DDR have worked tirelessly to bring this long lost gem of an album back to the masses. We’ve also included what was once thought to be the lost recordings of “No, No, Nikkie”, “All Of My Life” and “King Of Thieves” featuring Kingdom Come and ex-Scorpions drummer James Kottak behind the kit.
We could not be more proud to deliver such an outstanding album that never got its chance in the spotlight.
This CD is silver pressed, officially licensed by Paul Shortino and comes packaged in an eight page booklet with a full set of lyrics. As previously mentioned, it has been retitled, repackaged and remastered and is exclusively available from The DDR Music Group, grab your copy today before they sell out!
This album is available as a full album download through Bandcamp.”
