Album Notes
Dr Mastermind Matt McCourt's solo career started in 1986 after a hostile takeover of is wild dogs by outsiders and band mates teamed with Wild Dogs drummer Deen Castronovo ( the last minor league gig he would do before his career as a session drummer and band member of bad english ozzy osbourne paul rogers and journey ) and Guitarist Kurt James the extraordinary shred man who filled yngwie malmsteen's shoes in the group steeler
Mccourt wrote all the music for the wild dogs 3rd album that never transpired , deemed "not commercial enough" by the dogs
Matt took the tunes to mike varney who signed him as a solo artist and connected him with a number of guitarists for the project ( Paul Gilbert being was one of them ) until the right fit with Kurt James based on a mutual love of hendrix and fusion. came into play. this is a speed metal album with amazing freestyle drums and guitar "My philosophy is simple.. this is how the song goes... like a coloring book... Fill it up with as much or as little as you feel - GO!.. and that is how the album was recorded i insisted there be a song with a drum solo to showcase Deen (n the hopes m he may get a big time gig outof it which he did..) and also a guitar solo because i love to hear Kurt james(aka Tad schumacher play) the result is a unique blend of raw power and talent that isnt so polished that it osounds stale - i called it the 'benihana aproach cook it in front of the people .. no pro tools cuts everything played and sang in real time


to write a review

dr mastermind

its a great cd for a great price..
ok ill agree with yaaall about the damn insert but hey with over 9 albums worth of material on the enhanced version for $5.00 there is the consolation! and a band with a one month history and one gig just doesnt have much to write about! let the music do the talking and for the price ill give it 5 stars
clowns poster is in the mail if he emails me nobody smokes they bought beer... cheeep stuff at that. im evil genius baby!


Un clásico de los 80
Me costó lo suyo encontrarlo en lp (disco de culto para mi) y ahora lo tengo en mis manos en cd y además con extras en directo!! Para ser 5 estrellas le faltaría una mejor presentación (letras, fotos...) pero no todo el mundo es perfecto. Dr Mastermind forever!!


Yngwie Who? Well same league.
Kurt James totally rules all over this CD.He is definately a true guitarist that has been overlooked in the rock world.He is by far a TOP GUN and needs to come back as a virtuoso,just like the best of them.

Matt Reynolds

I agree about the poor packaging. The cd kicks ass!
Kick ass speed metal!

M Butler

Bad ass druming at the begining of Deno,s career..
The quality of the recording is so-so but the content on this album really makes up for any shortcomings in that area.Deno is a monster.I had not heard this in almost 20 yrs when I was browsing and found it...Go cd baby...

defenders of metal

killer speed metal shred
i read the other reviews and decided to buy the cd despite what stormrider says and visited the band website, much to my surprise dr mastermind himself emailed me back! im very thankful that this rare piece of history is even available
my vinyl copy saw lots of replays and was in a mess.
ive tried to cop many of the guitar riffs Kurt James is fantastic dr mastermind said in an email that these were his contribution to the 3rd wild dogs album he is also the lead singer of that band. ill have to dissagree with with packaging woes of the previous reviewer front and back are just like my vinyl copy.
i was satisfied with the music! teh live cuts are a bit rough and unproduced but that is evidence that it was not tampered with as many so called live albums are, Matt McCourt -dr mastermind explained that his goal is to share all of the stuff most bands hide away.

Tourette the Clown

I love the LP, I've had it in power rotation since '86. I've played it so many times you can hear the other side backwards. Now, a beef with the Doctor. In 1987 I sent $2 for a "merchandise catalog and poster" to from Dr. Mastermind's Outpatients. I never got it. Some stoner probably got a free pack of smokes with my $2!

Okay, making my ears bleed and then heisting my petty cash is pretty damn metal. Thanks Doc.

pretty enjoyable music / shitty "package"
The music on this CD is actuall pretty good, well written technical power metal based on the lead guitars. You can hear slight similarities to bands like Racer X, Cacophony or Vicious Rumors. Too bad the packaging & the Media is as weak. A burned CD-R with just a one page "booklet" is not good enough for an Album like this. I mean, a CD-R is something i'd expect (and accept) from a band that does release a demo nowadays. But in my opinion it's simply not acceptable to put out a reissue of a well known Album of a band that already has a name. So Music + 4 Stars / packaging -1 sums up to 3 stars at all.

This is the same Fatt Matt from wild dogs wow!
my husband and i were looking online and found this incredible cd under the wild dogs whom we are fans of
we never knew about this album which was apparently released just after matt left the wild dogs This album is really fast speed metal with the odgs drummer deen wailing away.
we saw deen in journey last year and this is how we remember him there is even a drum solo right on the cd!
and matt plays bass! this is better than wild dogs mans best friend


what can i say..kick's ass!!!
i knew of this year's ago from the wild dog's...i'm a deen castronovo fanatic..this and reign of terror from the wild dog's is some of his best work..mastermind rock's if you like speed metal this is a treat...
