Pinkerton is the second studio album by the American rock band Weezer, released in 1996.

To better capture their live sound, Weezer produced Pinkerton themselves, creating a darker, more abrasive album than their 1994 self-titled debut.

Cuomo, who was born with one leg shorter than the other, had extensive leg surgery in March to lengthen his right leg, followed by painful physiotherapy sessions. This affected his songwriting, as he would spend long periods hospitalized, unable to walk without the use of a cane, and under the influence of painkillers. In the same period, Cuomo applied to study classical composition at Harvard University with an application letter describing his disillusionment with the rock lifestyle.

Every night after performing with Weezer, he would listen to Giacomo Puccini's 1904 opera Madama Butterfly; the "depth of emotion and sadness and tragedy" inspired him to go further with his music. Cuomo's lyrics express disillusionment with the rock lifestyle; the album is named after the character BF Pinkerton from Giacomo Puccini's 1904 opera Madama Butterfly, whom Cuomo described as an "a**hole American sailor similar to a touring rock star". Cuomo felt the character was "the perfect symbol for the part of myself that I am trying to come to terms with on this album."

"Across the Sea" was inspired by a letter Cuomo received from a Japanese fan: "When I got the letter, I fell in love with her. It was such a great letter. I was very lonely at the time, but at the same time I was very depressed that I would never meet her." Lead single "El Scorcho" addresses Cuomo's shyness and inability to approach a girl while at Harvard.

A day before Pinkerton was to be released, a restraining order was obtained against the band by California-based security firm Pinkerton's Inc. The company sued Weezer and Geffen for alleged federal trademark infringement. Pinkerton's sought two million dollars in damages and Weezer would be kept from "selling, distributing, or advertising an album with the name Pinkerton." Geffen argued that "to Weezer, Pinkerton is a character in Puccini's opera Madama Butterfly... It was not meant to be aimed at any sort of corporate entity." Cuomo wrote a six-page paper defending his choice of the title, explaining "why I chose it, and how it works for the album, and how it's essential." The case was thrown out of court.

In 2002, Rolling Stone readers voted Pinkerton the 16th greatest album of all time. In 2004, Rolling Stone gave the album five stars out of five and added it to the "Rolling Stone Hall of Fame".

White Light/White Heat is the second studio album by American rock band the Velvet Underground, released in 1968.

It was the band's last studio recording of new material with bassist and founding member John Cale.

After the disappointing sales of the Velvet Underground's first album, The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967), the band's relationship with Andy Warhol deteriorated. They toured throughout most of 1967. Many of their live performances featured noisy improvisations that would become key elements on White Light/White Heat. The band fired Warhol, parted ways with Nico, and recorded their second album with Tom Wilson credited as producer.

The album was recorded in just two days. The album has been described as experimental rock, noise rock, proto-punk, and art rock.

The album is number 293 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Fire & Smoke is the second album by American country music singer Earl Thomas Conley, released in 1981.

The first single, "Silent Treatment" was his first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

The title track was released as the second single and became Conley's fourth top 40 country hit. "Fire and Smoke" was Conley's first No. 1 hit, spent 14 weeks in the top 40 country chart, and was named the No. 1 song of the entire year.

Earl Thomas Conley (October 17, 1941 – April 10, 2019) was an American country music singer-songwriter. Between 1980 and 2003, he recorded ten studio albums.

In the 1980s and into the 1990s, Conley charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Conley's eighteen Billboard Number One country singles during the 1980s marked the most Number One hits by any artist in any genre during that decade except for Alabama and Ronnie Milsap.

He was the only country artist to have appeared on the Soul Train television program (he performed his duet "Too Many Times" with pop/R&B singer Anita Pointer of the Grammy-winning Pointer Sisters).

In 2002, Blake Shelton charted in the Top 20 with "All Over Me," which Conley co-wrote.

Conley died on April 10, 2019, at 77 years old from cerebral atrophy.

After news of his death, Blake Shelton said, "Earl was my all time favorite singer, hero and my friend".
Autographed.

RIP Earl.

Keep Looking Up is an album by Tennessee Ernie Ford, released in 1984.

Ernest Jennings Ford (February 13, 1919 – October 17, 1991), known professionally as Tennessee Ernie Ford, was an American recording artist and television host who enjoyed success in the country and Western, pop, and gospel musical genres. Noted for his rich bass-baritone voice and down-home humor, he is remembered for his hit recording of "Sixteen Tons".

Ford was born in Bristol, Tennessee, to Maud and Clarence Thomas Ford. Ford began his radio career as an announcer at WOPI-AM in Bristol. In 1939, the young bass-baritone left the station to study classical singing at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in Ohio. A First Lieutenant, he served in the United States Army Air Corps in World War II as the bombardier on a B-29 Superfortress flying missions over Japan. He was also a bombing instructor at George Air Force Base, in Victorville, California. Ford's experiences as a navigator and bombardier in World War II led to his involvement with the Commemorative Air Force, a war plane preservation group in Texas. He donated a once-top-secret Norden Bombsight to the CAF's B-29 bomber restoration project.

After the war, Ford worked at KFXM, in San Bernardino, Ford hosted an early morning country music disc jockey program, Bar Nothin' Ranch Time. To differentiate himself, he created the personality of "Tennessee Ernie", a wild, madcap, exaggerated hillbilly. He became popular in the area and was soon hired away by Pasadena's KXLA radio.

He became a household name in the U.S., largely as a result of his portrayal in 1954 of the 'country bumpkin', "Cousin Ernie", on three episodes of I Love Lucy. In 1955, Ford recorded "Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier", which reached number 4 on the country music chart. Ford scored an unexpected hit on the pop charts in 1955 with his rendering of "Sixteen Tons". With Ford's snapping fingers and a unique clarinet-driven pop arrangement, "Sixteen Tons" spent ten weeks at number one on the country charts and seven weeks at number one on the pop charts. The record sold over twenty million copies.

Ford was awarded three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for radio, records, and television. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1984, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1990.

Out of the public eye, Ford and wife Betty contended with serious alcohol problems; Betty had had the problem since the 1950s as well as emotional issues that complicated both their lives and the lives of their sons. Though his drinking began to worsen in the 60s, he worked continuously, seemingly unaffected by his heavy intake of whiskey. By the 1970s, however, it had begun to take an increasing toll on his health, appearance and ability to sing, though his problems were not known publicly. After Betty's substance abuse-related death in 1989, Ernie's liver problems, diagnosed years earlier, became more apparent, but he refused to reduce his drinking despite repeated doctors' warnings. His last interview was taped in September 1991 by his long-time friend Dinah Shore for her TV show.

Ford was married to Betty Heminger from 1942, until her death in 1989. Less than four months after Betty's death, Ford married again.

On September 28, 1991, he suffered severe liver failure at Dulles Airport, shortly after leaving a state dinner at the White House, hosted by President George H. W. Bush. Ford died at Reston Hospital in Reston, Virginia, on October 17, 1991.

Ironic and tragic that his wife was named "Betty Ford" and they both had serious problems with alcohol.

Thunder in the Afternoon is the ninth album by Mac Davis, released in 1977.

Morris Mac Davis (born January 21, 1942) is a country music singer, songwriter, and actor, originally from Lubbock, Texas. His early work writing for Elvis Presley produced the hits "Memories", "In the Ghetto", "Don't Cry Daddy", and "A Little Less Conversation". A subsequent solo career in the 1970s produced hits such as "Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me". He also starred in his own variety show, a Broadway musical, and various films and TV shows.

Davis became famous as a songwriter and got his start as an employee of Nancy Sinatra's company, Boots Enterprises. Davis was with Boots for several years in the late 1960s. During his time there, he played on many of Sinatra's recordings, and she worked him into her stage shows. Boots Enterprises also acted as Davis's publishing company. Davis left Boots Enterprises in 1970 to sign with Columbia Records.

One of the songs he wrote in 1968, called "A Little Less Conversation", was recorded by Elvis Presley (and would become a posthumous success for Presley years later). Presley recorded "In the Ghetto" in sessions in Memphis. According to record producer Jimmy Bowen, "Ghetto" was originally pitched to Sammy Davis, Jr. but Mac Davis, guitar in hand, played the song in a studio, with onlookers such as Jesse Jackson and other members of the black activist community. Mac Davis, the only white man in the room at the time, eventually told Bowen, "I don't know whether to thank ya, or to kill ya." Mac Davis eventually recorded the tune after Presley's version became a success.

"I Believe in Music", often considered to be Davis's signature song, was recorded by several artists (including Marian Love, B.J. Thomas, Louis Jordan, Perry Como, Helen Reddy, and Davis himself) before it finally became a success in 1972 for the group Gallery. Later, he also became known as a country singer. During the 1970s, many of his songs "crossed over", successfully scoring on both the country and popular music charts, including "Baby, Don't Get Hooked on Me" (a number one Grammy-nominated success), "One Hell of a Woman" (pop no. 11), and "Stop and Smell the Roses" (a no. 9 pop hit).

Mac's second wife was Sarah Barg, then 16 years old and living in his apartment building with her mother. They were married in 1971. "We talked about having a family, but I was waiting for her to grow up," he says. She left him in 1976 for Glen Campbell. In 1980, Davis started to date a 22-year-old nurse, Lise Gerard. In 1982, she became his third (and current) wife.

He made his feature film debut opposite Nick Nolte in the football film, North Dallas Forty (1979) and was listed as one of 12 "Promising New Actors of 1979" by Screen World magazine. In 1983, he appeared in The Sting II, as Jake Hooker, a younger relative of Johnny Hooker, who was played by Robert Redford in The Sting.

Davis played Will Rogers in the Broadway production of The Will Rogers Follies.

On January 19, 1985, Davis performed "God Bless the USA" at the 50th Presidential Inaugural Gala before the second inauguration of Ronald Reagan.

Between 1999 and 2006, Davis provided the character voices of Sheriff Buford (two episodes) and a talk radio host named "Sports Jock" (three episodes), on the animated series King of the Hill.

Davis served as the balladeer for the 2000 television film The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood, replacing Don Williams, who had served the part in 1997's The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!, and Waylon Jennings, who narrated the original Dukes of Hazzard television show.

Davis was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2000 and was awarded a star symbol on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In the End is the eighth and final studio album by the Irish alternative rock band the Cranberries, released on 26 April 2019.

Guitarist Noel Hogan and singer Dolores O'Riordan began composing songs for the album while on tour in May 2017. The band cancelled several North American tour dates when O'Riordan suffered a herniated disc. That June, Hogan spent time in France writing and sending his demos to O'Riordan in New York to add lyrics. Together they wrote and demoed 11 songs that winter, with the final emails from O'Riordan arriving to Hogan hours before she died on 15 January 2018.

O'Riordan was found unresponsive at the London Hilton. An inquest ruled that she died as a result of accidental drowning in a bathtub, following sedation by alcohol intoxication. Five empty miniature bottles and a champagne bottle were found in her room as well as some prescription drugs. Toxicology tests showed that her body contained only "therapeutic" amounts of these medications, but a blood alcohol content of 0.33%.

The surviving bandmates set aside her vocals for several months following her death and after getting the full support from O'Riordan's family, they brought in Stephen Street—who produced several of their early albums—to complete the recording sessions in April and May. Completing O'Riordan's vocals required technical editing and the addition of backing vocalist Johanna Cranitch, who had toured with the band in 2012.

On the first anniversary of her death, "All Over Now" was released as an advance single.

Nine days after O'Riordan's cause of death was revealed, bandmate Noel Hogan confirmed this will be the final Cranberries album. He stated: "We don't want to continue without Dolores, so we're just going to leave after this."

You've Got a Good Love Comin' is the third studio album by American country music artist Lee Greenwood, released in 1984.

The final track is the first appearance of "God Bless the U.S.A.", an American patriotic song written by Greenwood. It was played at the 1984 Republican National Convention with President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan in attendance, but the song gained greater prominence during the Gulf War in 1990 and 1991 and was re-included on his 1992 album American Patriot. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, "God Bless the USA" re-entered the top 20 of the country charts.

Dolly Parton recorded the song for her 2003 patriotic album, For God and Country. In 2003, the song was performed by the American Idol season two finalists and released as a single, raising $155,000 for the American Red Cross. A word was changed in the released single at the request of one of the finalists. Josh Gracin was a Marine. The "men" in the line "and I won’t forget the men who died" was replaced with "ones" because Gracin acknowledged both men and women have died. Following the death of Osama bin Laden, R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles released her 2008 cover of the song with the proceeds going to charity.

In the 1970s, Greenwood moved to Las Vegas, where he worked as a blackjack dealer during the day, and as a singer at night. In 1979, he was discovered in Reno, Nevada, by Larry McFaden, the bandleader and bassist for Mel Tillis. Greenwood has released more than 20 major-label albums and has charted more than 35 singles on the Billboard country music charts, including seven number-one hits.

I thought it was funny that the album was signed for Steve Rogers... aka "Captain America".

Loaded: The Best of Blake Shelton is the first greatest hits album by American country music artist Blake Shelton, released in 2010.

The album has sold over one million copies in the United States and is Shelton's fourth album certified Platinum.

Country Standard Time review:
For those who cannot get enough of Blake Shelton this year (2010), wait no more as this is his third release. Shelton was the guinea pig of an experiment to release a six-song EP several times during the year to see if that would result in greater sales in a tough market. Fortunately for Shelton, who has enjoyed career ups and downs, the effort worked with "Hillbilly Bone and "All About Tonight" earlier this year. The 15 song compilation is Shelton's first greatest hits effort after 10 years of recordings.

For career fans, there is no reason to buy this because there are no new songs. However, at least, Shelton gives his take on each song, explaining them in liner notes. For example, his chart topping Austin from 2001 "was one of those songs that nobody would give a chance because it didn't come from well-know writers...Luckily for me, I wasn't a well-known artist at the time." Smart move. In fact, Shelton wrote none of the songs here.

The collection is more noteworthy for his older songs than the recent EPs, which had a few quality songs, but overall were not his best work artistically, even if they propelled his career to new heights. "Loaded" demonstrates that like many contemporary artists, he has veered away from a more traditional country sound.

In this day and age where artists seem to release greatest hits packages every four years, Shelton took his time. For those who want to reach back into Shelton's career, this is a good start.
