Night Songs is the debut studio album by American Rock band Cinderella, released in 1986. The album sold several million copies due to a combination of Cinderella's breakthrough single Nobody's Fool, MTV airplay, and an opening slot on labelmates Bon Jovi's tour, in support of their album Slippery When Wet.
The album peaked at #3 on the US charts, and was eventually certified triple platinum for shipping 3 million copies. Leadoff single Shake Me failed to chart, but Nobody's Fool cracked the Top 20, reaching #13. The third single Somebody Save Me went to #66.
Night Songs was criticized as one of the top five worst album covers on great albums. The cover was not that bad, it was just misleading, as it put forward a glam metal image, but the songs inside were classic Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.1. Night Songs

Long Cold WinterImport
Long Cold Winter is the second studio album by American Glam Rock band Cinderella, released in 1988. With Long Cold Winter, Cinderella started to move away from the Glam Rock music of their previous album and into a more Blues Rock-oriented direction, akin to early 1970s Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Humble Pie, Bad Company, and Deep Purple.
The record reached No. 10 in the US and became double-platinum for shipping 2 million copies in the US by the end of the year, just as their debut album Night Songs had done earlier. It was later certified triple platinum.
The album features four singles, which all charted in the US: Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone), which was to be Cinderella's highest-charting single, The Last Mile, Coming Home and Gypsy Road.1. Bad Seamstress Blues / Fallin' Apart At The Seams

For The Sake Of The SongTownes Van Zandt wrote songs with an uncommon grace and poetic clarity, and he sang them with a voice that was at once straightforward, eloquent and mindful of the arid beauty of his images. A decade after Van Zandt released his debut album, there would be dozens of singer/songwriters following in his footsteps, but he was a rather unusual commodity when the Jack Clement and Jim Malloy produced and arranged For the Sake of the Song was originally released in 1968.
The 11-songs on Van Zandt's debut are all of fine quality and the emotional force with which Van Zandt delivers Quicksilver Daydreams of) Maria, Tecumseh Valley and the title tune belies the fact this was actually only his first album. On several tracks Clement and Malloy match the elusive mystery of Van Zandt's music with brilliant accompaniment especially on The Velvet Voice, the Western backdrop of I'll Be Here in the Morning, the tinkling keyboards on Sad Cinderella and the rattling percussion of Waitin' Around to Die.
For The Sake Of The Song remains a classic debut. These songs make clear that Van Zandt's genius was already fully formed and as both a composer and a performer he was a man of rare gifts. Throughout, these gifts shine bright, and For the Sake of the Song was truly an auspicious early offering from an unparalleled musical talent.1. For The Sake Of The Song

The Late Great Townes Van ZandtThe Late Great Townes Van Zandt is a 1972 studio album by Texas singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. It was the second album that he recorded in 1972, and a follow-up to High, Low and In Between. The album includes the earliest recorded version of two of his best-known songs, Pancho and Lefty and If I Needed You. The album also included several cover songs and a re-recorded version of Sad Cinderella from his 1968 debut album. Some reviewers point to this as an indication that Van Zandt's prolific writing was beginning to slow, however, this was his sixth studio album in five years. The cover songs included one song by his close friend, Guy Clark (Don't Let the Sunshine Fool Ya'), one by a major influence, Hank Williams (Honky Tonkin'), and the Lawton Williams song Fraulein. As a boy Van Zandt's father only agreed to buy him his first guitar after Van Zandt promised to learn to play Fraulein.
The album has made several critical best of all-time lists. Stereophile included it as one of 94 honorable mentions that just missed their list of The 40 Essential Albums.1 No Lonesome Tune

MelbourneIt's the original rock n' roll fantasy: to be genius, aloof, deserving. To be instantaneously swept from the wings of obscurity into the arms of acclaim. Well, that's what I've heard at least.
But who does this really happen to? Most successful musicians will tell you it's not enough to make brilliant music. You've got to work it constantly, clawing and hustling to get people to the next show, to finance the next record. How pedestrian. How droll. Why can't it just happen?
No, it would seem there are no rock n' roll fairytales anymore. Or are there?
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Jackson Scott, indie's newest prince charming. At the tender age of 20, Scott is already receiving more attention for his forthcoming debut, Melbourne than many musicians get in a lifetime.
When an artist blows up this quickly it's hard to hear their music from an unbiased position. Questions unfailingly arise: What's the deal? Is he really that f-in' good? Did Daddy pay the promo man (remember The Strokes)? Is this guy for real?
So, before we go on, let me just say, this record is good. Like, really good. Like, "I'm kinda freaked out that a kid who's been making music for a year did this by himself on a 4-track" good.
So, let's ignore the hype for a while.
First, the strength of Scott's songwriting is undeniable. Yea, there are some instrumentals here... but overall these songs stick with you. They have power, and with most of them clocking in at around the two minute mark, you won't get bored. Lyrically, Scott both flirts with and repudiates the kind of adolescent moodiness associated with the mopey 90's. Conversely, his musings also betray a connection to the well-fed and perpetually distracted iPhone generation.
Melbourne also offers plenty of rewards in its production. Scott has the hissy, tape, psych-pop thing down. He's experimental where he needs to be and hooky where it counts. These homespun recordings sound like early Ty Segall as produced by The Elephant 6 Recording Co. While Scott acknowledges Segall as an influence, he claims ignorance of the famed recording collective. That said, his misanthropic use of sped-up vocals suggests otherwise.
Melbourne opens with "Only Eternal", a wash of ambient guitar. This brooding intro slyly transitions into "Evie", with its sludgy, driving rhythm, Twilight Zone guitar hooks, and wavering harmonies. Peppy and short, "Sandy" is a druggy acoustic-pop highlight.
"That Awful Sound" is the song that gained Scott so much attention in the first place. Nothing if not a solid single, its strummed acoustics, booming rhythm, and pseudo-Chipmunk vocals are impossible to hear without thinking of Elephant 6. It's not surprising that the crew at Pitchfork (no doubt approaching middle age and feeling a little nostalgic) picked this track to be "the song". This kind of thing ruled all hell in 1998. If not the best track on the record, it is at least the most classifiable, and by extension the most marketable.
"Any Way"... is the high-water mark for Scott's pitch-shifted vocals. It's the kind of song Jackson Scott really sells. It's quick, melody driven, and vaguely flippant. With its toy marimba solo, it also exposes the childlike undercurrent running throughout this record.
"Together Forever" is one of my favorite songs on Melbourne. If you listen closely you can hear the famous background vocals from "Where is My Mind?" at the beginning. To me this is Jackson Scott playing it straight. His voice sounds like a real person and his noisy guitar swells are just as mind-bending as anything coming out of the current psych-revival.
"In The Sun" is reminiscent of the late Scott Miller's more stripped-down moments with Game Theory. The song's chorus reminds us of how much an inspiration Kurt Cobain is to Scott.
Notwithstanding the strength, charisma, and raw talent exhibited on Melbourne, it feels like Jackson Scott has skipped a few levels. Although Cinderella sometimes does well in sports and American Idol, Jackson Scott is going for something much weightier, much deeper. Dare we call it, legitimacy?

Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart
25th Anniversary Reissue
Featuring New Liners And Photos
When indie superstars Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in the late 1980s, it seemed inconceivable. How could that band move to a
major label without "selling out" and sacrificing all that made them great?
The first three tracks on Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart were a pop song, an instrumental and an adaptation of a folk dirge about death. Heck, the
release even had a love song for Patty Hearst. No, Camper Van Beethoven didn't sell out. They just had better distribution now.
Omnivore Recordings is proud to take everyone back to 1988, when musical worlds collided and Camper Van Beethoven helped break the mold and blur
the lines between indie rock and "alternative." Suddenly, it was an even playing field and Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart found itself in the bins
next to Chicago and Cinderella. Produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), the 25th anniversary of this landmark album finds it
reissued for the first time since its original issue.
Featuring new liners and photos, Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart is being reissued in tandem with its acclaimed follow up
Key Lime Pie, with full cooperation and input from the band themselves. These are the releases CVB fans have been dreaming of.
It's been a few years since the end of the 1980s, but Camper Van Beethoven has always been timeless. Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart proves
that. It's even spelled out in the title: beloved, revolutionary and a real sweetheart.1. Eye Of Fatima (Pt. 1)

Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015New York City is a big place. A loud place. Some of that noise is music. And some of the music is noise.
Sucking it all in and turning it loose with prejudice, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion takes a ferocious bite out of the Big Apple with their new long-player, Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015, the first record of the new era that demands to be stopped and frisked!
Like the best sides that percolated up from the Bronx, the Lower East Side, and Greenwich Village across the 1970s and '80s - Freedom Tower is more than a high-octane dance party record, it is a document of New York City, a chronicle of grit and terror and love!
It's all here: The Hustler and The Trust Fund Baby, the Mosh Pit Casualty, the Celebrity Chef, the Crooked Cop, the Struggling Artist, the Sucker MC, the forgotten Sex Workers and Last-Chance Cinderellas. Within these grooves are cold-water tenements, blue-chip galleries, dingy Avenue B studios, and the last real warrior poet whose dark magick brings garage rock ghosts back from the grave!
Freedom Tower is a radical portrait of New York City set to the savage funkacide of the Blues Explosion, locked and loaded with the most deadly, predatory guitar riffs that primitive magnetic tape can handle . From start to finish, Freedom Tower is overmodulated, cooked with dirt, and finished in acid rain! Freedom Tower is packed with the kind of beats and rhymes that will make even the most reserved Walter Mitty jump back and say "damn!"
For nearly a quarter-century the Blues Explosion have been sweating, freezing, eating, drinking, fucking, fighting, winning, and losing in New York City, perpetrating some of the most timeless moments of musical mayhem in the history of Manhattan and beyond. As ever, Jon Spencer tells the tales, Judah Bauer plays the blues, and Russell Simins smashes things to bits... And as always Blues Explosion stomp on the faux underground oasis peddled by bourgeois hipsters and marketing jocks to deliver the real deal - rock'n'roll that is unapologetically nasty and strong.
Rehearsed and polished in a string of secret gigs and unannounced opening slots in theaters, hotel bars, and dives (often under assumed names), and then recorded at the legendary Daptone House Of Soul in Bushwick and mixed with hip-hop cult legend Alap Momin at the cutting edge of Harlem, Freedom Tower is the most provocative statement of urban pathos and panache ever recorded.
Play this record at all-night rent parties, picnics, discotheques, and protests!

Esther (Out Of Stock)Available for the first time on super-silent 200-gram vinyl pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Mastered by Doug Sax
If you like the sweet voice of Ayako Hosokawa, the sexy voice of Mari Nakamoto, the unique voice of Patricia Barber and the tender voice of Jacintha, then you must listen to Esther. Ofarim, an Israeli female vocalist, was in the 1970's a part of the duo Esther and Abi Ofarim and later she persued her career as a solo artist. Ofarim put out records in several styles throughout her career, including folk music (of Israel and other cultures and countries), folk-rock, novelty, and orchestrated folk-pop-classical-rock in the style of Judy Collins. Ofarim often released records in English, with virtually no trace of an Israeli accent, and also performed and recorded for a while with her one-time husband Abi.
Although not too well-known to the English-speaking audience (particularly in the United States), Ofarim has impinged on the pop and rock consciousness from time to time. In 1968, she had a British number one hit (also a big seller in other countries, though not in the U.S.) with the novelty Cinderella Rockafella, recorded as part of a duo with husband Abi; Esther and Abi had another British hit, One More Dance, later that year.1.
