“So Tell Me Why” is a single by American Hard rock band Poison, from their 1991 Swallow This Live album. The song peaked at number 25 on the UK Singles chart and was one of four new studio tracks on the live hits album. This was the last single with C.C. DeVille until 2000’s Power to the People.

Special Collectors Edition 12″ Red Vinyl housed in a gatefold pvc sleeve. The record itself was brand new and sealed however the pressing was not the best especially on the live tracks. However I think it all turned out fairly well.

    I don’t remember this song, looking forward to it. The live versions might be good too. I have lots of love for Poison and their kind of music. Always fun! Thanks, Paul! 😎

    Amazing such style-clashes some unwarned people get to hear via you, Paul 🙂
    If it weren’t for some fans of Poison when i was in high school, i would have totally forgotten them. It was lovely to see them young adolescent tough guys be carefull with their hair while giving an impression of a headbang. (If on april fools’ you said this was an exotica by Duran Duran, i swear some would have believed you.)

    I was a big fan of Poison in the 90’s!
    “Swallow This Live” was the first live album from Poison, including 4 new studio tracks. “So Tell Me Why” was one of those. I remember buying this album in 1993.
    Thank you very much Paul!!!
