Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever - Hope Downs, 48/24 FLAC. I've had this more-or-less since it came out, listened to it a few time, but never really got it, quite enjoying it today, though.

I heard Years of Refusal with Morrissey last night... The sound in this album is great compared to the Smiths albums..

But yes the music and song is great also... More rock than crooning.

People is the debut album by celtic rock group Hothouse Flowers, released in 1988.

Hothouse Flowers are an Irish rock group that combines traditional Irish music with influences from soul, gospel, and rock. Formed in 1985 in Dublin, they started as street performers. Rolling Stone magazine called them "the best-unsigned band in Europe". In 1986, Bono from the band U2 saw the Flowers performing on television and offered his support. They released their first single, "Love Don't Work This Way", on U2's Mother Records label, which quickly led to a deal with the PolyGram subsidiary London Records.

Their first album, People, was the most successful debut album in Irish history. It reached the #1 slot in Ireland within a week. The first single off the album "Feet on the Ground" shot to the No. 1 slot.

Liam Ó Maonlaí - piano, lead vocals, Hammond organ, harmonica, bodhrán, vibraphone, marimba
Fiachna Ó Braonáin - electric and acoustic guitars, backing vocals, electric sitar
Peter O'Toole - bass, backing vocals, electric guitar, mandolin, bouzouki
Leo Barnes - saxophone, backing vocals
Jerry Fehily - drums, percussion

In 1992, Hothouse Flowers joined Def Leppard – the combined group going by the name The Acoustic Hippies From Hell – to record three songs ("From the Inside", a cover of the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want", and a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing") that were included as B-sides on Def Leppard's single "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad", from their album Adrenalize.
Autographed by Liam, Fiachna, and Peter.

Great show. I knew all of the songs, including Montrose and his early solo stuff, but even the wives were surprised by how much they knew, especially with Night Ranger, who also played some Damn Yankees.

Jason Bonham got the Led out with Rock and Roll, in honor of his late father's 71st birthday, the same age as Sammy.

The chemistry between the whole band was great. Very animated. Except Vic Johnson... he had a cast on his leg and sat on a stool all night. Michael Anthony even sang a few verses. Michael said Vic fell of the stage while completely sober. Michael enjoyed a few shots, including a hands-free miniature of Jack while playing his JD bass. Sammy had beer and waters until late in the show, but cracked open a bottle of tequila and shared it with Michael and everyone in the front row.

Sold out crowd was into it all night. Wolf Trap is one of our favorite venues.

Rina Mushonga - In a Galaxy, CD. One of my favourite albums of the year, so far. Was my favourite for a bit. From the review I read it seemed that it was going to be a modern hip-hop/soul with African influences type sound, but it's more like Alison Moyet--one of a number of pretty excellent '80s reminiscent albums I've heard lately. Whatever, pretty awesome, anyway. In heavy rotation.

Quote:
Greatest Hits is a compilation album by Kenny Rogers & The First Edition, released in 1971.

AllMusic Review:
You can listen to every single track on Kenny Rogers & the First Edition Greatest Hits, but what is most striking about this collection of songs is the brilliance of two tracks, Mike Settle's "But You Know I Love You," followed here by their first hit single, "Just Dropped In" (as it is called on this collection's cover, the label on the vinyl has the lengthy "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)"). The band could have evaporated after releasing just those two titles and would have been revered as pop maestros; both compositions are not what one would expect from exiles of the New Christy Minstrels.

This album puts it into perspective with the seven Top 40 hits the group accrued between 1968 and 1970, as well as "Love Woman," "Momma's Waiting," and the Mac Davis title "I Believe in Music," which Gallery hit with and which was covered by many others, including Helen Reddy. It's not chronological, and opening up with "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" (as Rogers does with his 1978 solo greatest hits package, Ten Years of Gold) is probably more of a personal decision.

The sizzling guitars on the neo-hard rock "Just Dropped In" are relegated to the middle of the disc, though a Mick Jagger would have opened the album up with his "always hit 'em hard at first" mindset. But regardless of the tracking, the First Edition truly is a band that racked up an impressive array of hits which do not get their fair share of play on classic rock stations, some major oldies stations also neglecting what is an amazing body of work.

Kenny Rogers' career and fame in country and pop music eradicated the value of this group on the live circuit, something many of its contemporaries embraced. Sad to say, a reunion of the First Edition would not get the response it deserves,as those who want to hear this material do so when Kenny Rogers comes to town. It's a credit to his skills as a businessman and performer, but the body of work created by his late-'60s/early-'70s group was substantial, and spinning The First Edition Greatest Hits puts it into perspective.

There are eight home runs here -- that's more music recognizable to the general public than the Youngbloods and the Zombies had combined, and look at how many packages and re-packages those two groups have been blessed with. The First Edition never got the respect it richly deserved and this album with its wonderful Jimmy Bowen and Mike Post production work is important and still fun to listen to.
