2013 five CD box set containing a quintet of albums packaged in cardboard mini LP sleeves and housed in a slipcase. This collection of Ratt's first five albums covers the years from 1984 to 1990 that saw them have significant commercial success. Tracks such as 'Round and Round,' 'Wanted Man' and 'Lay It Down' helped define the Glam Metal genre, while their later output such as 'Way Cool Jr.' and 'I Want a Woman' featured heavily on MTV. Originally hailing from San Diego California, Ratt were a key figure in the formation of the 80's Los Angeles Hard Rock and Glam Metal scene.
"Tell The World: The Very Best Of Ratt" is a career-spanning compilation album featuring twenty tracks from all seven of Ratt's albums, including their quartet of consecutive platinum LPs from the mid-to-late-'80s: Out of the Cellar, Invasion of Your Privacy, Dancing Undercover and Reach for the Sky, plus their 1990 album Detonator and their self titled 1999 album.
"Ratt" is the self-titled sixth studio album by the American glam metal band Ratt. Often referred to as "1999" by fans (partially to avoid confusion with their EP, which was also self-titled), this album saw the band's musical direction shift to a more blues-influenced rock sound and further away from their previous glam metal roots. This is the first studio album to feature bassist Robbie Crane.
"Collage" is a compilation album by the American glam metal band Ratt. This album consists of alternate recordings, B-sides, and versions of songs from the band's Mickey Ratt period. It was mostly recorded and released in 1997, concurrently with Ratt's reunion tour, so that they would have a new album to promote.
Dancing Undercover is Ratt's third full length album. It was produced by Beau Hill. The album contained the hit single/video "Dance", as well as "Body Talk", which was used on the soundtrack for Eddie Murphy's film, The Golden Child, and the third release, "Slip of the Lip". It charted at #26 on Billboard's Album Chart and #14 on Rolling Stone's Album Chart. The album is certified Platinum.
Detonator is Ratt's fifth studio album, released in August 1990. Though their previous album, Reach for the Sky, went platinum, it met with much criticism regarding the quality of their songs. In an attempt to regain the popularity that Ratt had in the mid-1980s, the band parted ways with long-time producer Beau Hill. Hitmaker Desmond Child and his personal sound engineer Sir Arthur Payson were hired to helm the project.
