Too Wild To Tame: The Anthology by Avenger was recorded between 1982 & 1985. Too Wild To Tame: The Anthology music CDs Includes liner notes by Mick Moor, John Tucker.2-CD;"Blood Sports" & "Killer Elite"+Non Album B-Side 2002's Too Wild to Tame: Anthology chronicles the short and obscure three-year career of Newcastle, England's Avenger. Somewhat belated purveyors of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal style, the quartet was founded by two exiting members of minor scene legends Blitzkrieg and proceeded to cut one single and two albums for Neat Records before going their separate ways. That's 24 songs in all, and every last one of them is collected here -- starting with three rudimentary offerings from the short-lived, Brian Ross-led original lineup. Really more demo tape than single material, "Hot 'n' Heavy Express," "Too Wild to Tame," and "On the Rocks" will be considered sub-standard heavy metal by most any definition; and the extremely dated falsettos unleashed by Ross sure don't help any. Too Wild To Tame: The Anthology CD music is a 2-disc set with 24 songs.
