The Platinum-Selling "Once Bitten" Album Gets Stripped Away By Jack Russell's Great White

Arriving May 1st from Deadline Music (Cleopatra Records) is the new unplugged rock album from Jack Russell's Great White titled "Once Bitten Acoustic Bytes." It features Russell's remade version of Great White's 1987 masterpiece "Once Bitten" all done acoustically. The original album was a turning point for the band and made Great White into platinum-selling artists behind the hits "Rock Me" and "Save Your Love."

This new version features the exact same song line-up of the U.S. release, with "Lady Redlight" leading the way. Jack Russell's voice still sounds timeless, as the band bring out the energy through their acoustic instruments. This new seven-and-a-half minute unplugged version of their mega-hit "Rock Me" carries a more bluesy vibe than the original, which concludes with the explosion of hard rock energy. Even with all the electric polish stripped away, songs like "All Over Now" and "Livin' On The Edge" are pure rockers that show the songwriting talent of the originals, with great instrumentation supplied by Russell's new band. The album closes with the perfect acoustic setting for the power ballad "Save Your Love" and an outstanding unplugged cover of Led Zeppelin's "Babe (I'm Gonna Leave You)," which was always a staple in Great White's live show.
