How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb is the eleventh studio album by Irish rock band U2, released in 2004.

Looking for a more hard-hitting sound than that of their previous album, All That You Can't Leave Behind, U2 began recording with Chris Thomas. Bono said one of their new songs called "Full Metal Jacket" was "the mother of all rock songs" and "the reason to make a new album". A similar demo called "Native Son" was also recorded. Both of these demos would later become "Vertigo". After nine months of work, they were not satisfied with the results. The group re-enlisted Steve Lillywhite to take over as producer. Bono described the album as "our first rock album. It's taken us twenty years or whatever it is, but this is our first rock album."

How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb received favorable reviews and reached number one in 30 countries, including the US, where first-week sales nearly doubled the band's previous personal best. The album and its singles won all nine Grammy Awards for which they were nominated.

Singles included "Vertigo", "City of Blinding Lights" and "Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own".

The album was included in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Best Albums of the Decade".
I saw this tour in Pittsburgh. Hard to believe it's been 15 years.

Saw 'em on this tour, about 20 rows back left of center....this was before the interweb kiddos, we drove the hundred miles to the city where the venue was, bought tickets from the roll that the ticket office had (the next two were yours) so you were dealt the hand of fate of where your seats were. Then drove back at the date to see the concert, whew! A li'l diff than these days..........


Edit - hard to believe this was 43 years ago.

Vitalogy is the third studio album by the American rock band Pearl Jam, released in 1994.

Drums on "Satan's Bed" were performed by Abbruzzese's drum tech Jimmy Shoaf. On the day it was recorded, Abbruzzese was in the hospital having his tonsils removed. Vedder and Gossard asked for Shoaf's help to get a drum machine working, and after setting it up, the pair asked Shoaf to perform the same beat on the drums. He is credited on the lyric sheet as "Jimmy". Months after finishing the recording sessions for Vitalogy, Abbruzzese was fired due to personality conflicts with the band members.

The album was first released on vinyl, followed by a release on CD and cassette two weeks later. The LP held the record for most vinyl sales in one week since SoundScan began tracking sales.

At the 1996 Grammy Awards, "Spin the Black Circle" won the band its first Grammy Award, receiving the award for Best Hard Rock Performance. Vitalogy received nominations for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album.

Rolling Stone: Their previous album, Vs., made Pearl Jam the most successful band in the world. They celebrated by suing Ticketmaster and making Vitalogy, where their mastery of rock's past and future became complete. Soulful ballads like "Nothingman" are matched by hardcore-influenced rockers such as "Spin the Black Circle."

The album is number 485 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
25th Anniversary for this album.

Kid Sheik Plays Blues and Standards is an album by George "Kid Sheik" Colar, released ~1970.

George Colar, better known as Kid Sheik or Kid Sheik Cola, (15 September 1908 - 7 November 1996) was a New Orleans jazz trumpeter. He is most associated with Dixieland jazz and was a long-term performer with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He got his nickname from his chic style of dress, with an affinity for wearing suits as a teenager.

In 1943, Colar began training at a US Army Air Corps music school, where he supplemented his experiential knowledge and innate talent with extensive formal training. After his military discharge, Colar returned to New Orleans in 1945 and formed a band of his own. He was also a stand-in for the Eureka Brass Band. A gig with the respected musician/arranger George Lewis and his band came in 1949 at the New Orleans venue Manny’s Tavern, and he replaced Eddie Richardson in the Eureka Brass Band, becoming a permanent member of the group in 1952.

Beginning in the 1960s, Kid Sheik performed widely with his own groups, including the Swingsters and the Storyville Ramblers, whose members included Captain John Handy and Cié Frazier. Kid Sheik would go on a memorable tour of England with British-born jazz drummer Barry Martyn in 1963. He would go on many more tours in the coming years, including one of Europe in 1966 with Captain John Handy.

Although essentially self-taught, he was a protege of the late great “Wooden Joe” Nicholas, who had befriended him as a youth. Kid Sheik has performed with a variety of other jazz legends, ranging from Harold Dejan and his Olympia Brass Band to hot jazz titan Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong. It is the legacy of Preservation Hall, however, for which he is probably most famous. Kid Sheik’s band began jamming there for a drop-in audience in the 1950s, when it was an art gallery owned by jazz buff Larry Borenstein. This evolved into the Preservation Hall we know today, where his band continues to play the same kind of music it has played for the last 66 years (four of its seven members are over 80 years old).

Jazz band playing at Preservation Hall, New Orleans, 1965, Kid Sheik Colar on trumpet:


In 1968 he appeared in the Frank DeCola film The Cradle Is Rocking, a documentary about New Orleans jazz.

In 1982 Kid Sheik married Sadie Goodson, a gifted pianist and childhood sweetheart who was the sister of fellow Preservation Hall musician Billie Pierce. When the couple wed, both were octogenarians. Later, with Goodson, Cola would record the 1986 album My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time.

The 1990 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival poster featured George “Kid Sheik” Colar, at age 81.

Sound of Silver is the second studio album by American dance-punk act LCD Soundsystem, released in 2007.

Sound of Silver was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Entertainment Weekly ranked it as one of the top 50 albums of the last 25 years. Pitchfork Media named the track "All My Friends" as the second best song of the decade.

Rolling Stone: New York electro-punk kingpin James Murphy makes his masterpiece: Every track sounds like a different band's greatest hit, from the political punk goof "North American Scum" to the elegiac synth-pop breakup lament "Someone Great."

AllMusic Review:
Compared to the first LCD Soundsystem album, Sound of Silver is less silly, funnier, less messy, sleeker, less rowdy, more fun, less distanced, more touching. It is just as linked to James Murphy's record collection, with traces of post-punk, disco, Krautrock, and singer/songwriter schlubs, but the references are evidently harder to pin down; the number of names dropped in the reviews published before its release must triple the amount mentioned throughout "Losing My Edge." There's even some confusion as to which version of David Bowie is lurking around.

One clearly evident aspect of the album is that Murphy has streamlined his sound. All the jagged frays have been removed, replaced by a slightly tidier approach that is more direct and packs more punch. Murphy comes across as a fully naturalized producer of dance music -- especially on "Get Innocuous!" -- as opposed to a product of '90s indie rock who has made a convincing switch-up. And yet, the album's best song is sad, should not be played in any club, and it at least matches the work of any active songwriter who has been praised.

"Someone Great," a bittersweet pop song built on swelling synthesizers and a dual vocal-and-glockenspiel melody, could definitely be about a devastating breakup ("To tell the truth I saw it coming/The way you were breathing"), at least until "You're smaller than my wife imagined/Surprised you were human," which could mean the song either took a turn for the absurd or is about the death (and funeral) of a loved one. Either way, it is the most moving song Murphy has made, and it only helps further the notion that he should be considered a great songwriter, not simply a skilled musician with a few studio tricks and the occasional clever quip.

The closer, "New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down," seals it: "New York, you're perfect, oh please don't change a thing/Your mild billionaire mayor's now convinced he's a king/And so the boring collect -- I mean all disrespect/In the neighborhood bars I'd once dreamt I would drink." If he keeps it up, he'll be writing songs for Pixar by 2020.
The album is number 395 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Mars Needs Guitars! is the second album by Australian rock group Hoodoo Gurus, released in 1985.

The title is a reference to the 1967 science fiction film, Mars Needs Women. Singles from the album were "Bittersweet", "Like Wow – Wipeout", "Death Defying", and "Poison Pen".

It is listed in the book, 100 Best Australian Albums, at No. 28, with their previous album, Stoneage Romeos. In 2007, they were inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame.

AllMusic Review:
The Hoodoo Gurus followed the excellent Stoneage Romeos with the equally swell Mars Needs Guitars!, a second helping of Dave Faulkner's wonderfully skewed kitsch-pop confections. While the band's basic m.o. hasn't changed all that much in the interim -- '60s-era pop, garage rock, and cowpunk remain their key musical reference points -- Faulkner's skills as a songwriter have grown perceptibly: the opening "Bittersweet" is an absolute gem, with other highlights like "Death Defying" and "Show Some Emotion" trailing not far behind.

Also commendable is the Gurus' sharp wit -- from the hillbilly freakout of "Hayride to Hell" to the primitive B-movie stomp of the title track, their affection for the guilty pleasures of trash culture is infectious. Irresistible fun.
Brad Shepherd (born 1 February 1961 in Sydney, New South Wales) is an Australian rock musician. Shepherd is a guitarist, singer-songwriter and harmonica player; he has performed with several bands, most notably the Hoodoo Gurus. In 1981, Faulkner had founded Le Hoodoo Gurus in Sydney with James Baker, Roddy Radalj and Kimble Rendall but after their first single, "Leilani" (1982), Rendall and Radalj both left being replaced by Bramley and Shepherd. As Hoodoo Gurus, with Shepherd on lead guitar, backing vocals (sometimes lead vocals) and harmonica the band released eight studio albums starting with Stoneage Romeos (1984). In 1999, following Gurus break-up, Shepherd recorded "Alex Chilton" for The Replacements tribute album, I'm in Love... With That Song.
Autographed by lead guitarist/vocalist Brad Shepherd

One of my favorite 80's college bands. Roadtripped to see them at another college and had a blast. Still on my Top 10 list of favorite bands that no one else knows.

Good reminder. I have this on 2 CDs and the concert on Blu-ray [DTS-HD MA Surround mix] It's been a while since I watched it.

Standing Hampton is the sixth solo album by Sammy Hagar, released in 1982.

It was his first album to achieve RIAA certification, eventually going platinum, and five singles charted.

A different version of the song "Heavy Metal" was used for the soundtrack for the animated movie Heavy Metal.

"Piece of My Heart" is a cover of the song made famous by Janis Joplin.

"There's Only One Way to Rock" went on to be one of Hagar's biggest solo hits and a signature tune. This song, along with "I Can't Drive 55", were the two Hagar songs that Van Halen consistently played when he joined the band. In 2007, Hagar was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Van Halen.
Going to see Sammy with Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Night Ranger in a couple of weeks.

Big Life is the fourth studio album by Night Ranger, released in 1987.

It featured the single "The Secret of My Success", which was written for the 1987 film of the same name starring Michael J. Fox. The single flopped,but it was one of the most played videos in 1987 on MTV.

AllMusic Review:
Night Ranger was riding high on the success of Midnight Madness and Seven Wishes, a pair of albums that actually brought the arena rockers into arenas. They had stardom and they knew they wanted to keep the Big Life -- which is exactly why their 1987 follow-up to Seven Wishes sounds so stilted.

In many ways, the record's first single encapsulates what was wrong with the album. Functioning as both the lead single and the theme to the Michael J. Fox yuppie comedy, "The Secret of My Success" found Night Ranger turning down the metal in favor of glossy, radio-ready pop hooks that never quite hooked. It's not that Night Ranger were strangers to radio-friendly pop -- after all, this is the band that wrote the classic "Sister Christian" -- but the formula outweighed the inspiration and melodies this time around. Audiences could sense it, too.

Granted, the public's taste was beginning to shift to the harder rock of Guns N' Roses and the alt-rock of U2 and R.E.M., but pop-metal was still the name of the game in 1987, thanks to Def Leppard and Whitesnake. Thing is, Night Ranger didn't have the hooks in either the rocker or ballad department on Big Life, and the respective singles ("The Secret of My Success," "Hearts Away") flopped along with the rest of the album. Though they later rebounded artistically, such a poor performance marked the end of Night Ranger's time as hitmakers.
Opening for Hagar.
