Flip is a solo album from Nils Lofgren, released in 1985.

Lofgren is a longtime guitarist for Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen. The sound is typical of the style of the mid-80's, with a heavy emphasis on the snare drum sound, Lofgren's guitar, and plenty of synthesizer. The name of the album reflects his signature trampoline 'flips' performed on stage whilst playing guitar solos.

AllMusic Review:
The tenth album from Nils Lofgren is a very polished affair with excellent production from Lofgren and Lance Quinn. The material is written by Lofgren, and it is all strong to very strong, with lyrics bordering on lecturing the listener. "Flip Ya Flip," the title track, and "Big Tears Fall" are the most commercial songs here, "Flip Ya Flip" a real odd one, though. Lofgren calls the guys "buddy," telling them to "lift your pretty head, hold it high" and the gals he calls "sister," terms of endearment for sure from a macho figure who has full-fledged membership in the "E Street" gang. Is the title track about an off-color gesture or life on a trampoline or indiscernible sexuality? Perhaps all of the above.

"Secrets in the Street," "From the Heart," and "Delivery Night" have their moments as well, and if any of this material got consistent airplay, there's a good chance Flip could have found an audience beyond Lofgren's loyal cult. His guitar-playing is first rate, and the sonics are more pronounced than Jeffrey Baxter's ideas on 1981's Night Fades Away, though lacking the ambience of Bob Ezrin's 1979 work on Nils. "Sweet Midnight" has that ever-present '80s snare drum prominent in the mix with Lofgren's guitar right next to it, and the vocals perhaps a little too far in the background, no doubt one of the problems.

The guitar slinger for Bruce Springsteen has a technically better voice than "the Boss," and that voice deserved to be up further than the drum in the mix. "Sweet Midnight" is another tune which should have been able to garner some kind of attention, if not on Top 40 at least in the dance clubs. An image of Lofgren in midair adorns the yellow cover, with the album title upside down -- anyone who witnessed the band Grin live got to see Lofgren do somersaults onstage. Had they re-cut the cover of the Beatles' "Anytime at All" from Night Fades Away with this thunderous beat rather than the light pop found on that disc, it could have done the trick.

Lofgren is an important artist who deserves a breakthrough hit and a retrospective combining the most accessible tracks from his rich catalog. Flip is a decent outing worthy of more than a few spins.

Feargal Sharkey is the first solo album of former Undertones singer Feargal Sharkey, released in 1985.

The album contains Sharkey's best known single "A Good Heart", his only No. 1, written by Maria McKee (Lone Justice). The album also contains "You Little Thief", which reached number 5 on the charts, written by Benmont Tench, a member of Tom Petty's band, about his relationship with McKee in response to her writing "A Good Heart" about him.

AllMusic Review:
The Irish singer's solo debut opens with a perfectly conceived and executed cover of Maria McKee's "A Good Heart" that deservedly shot to number one on the United Kingdom charts. You'd think the distinctive quavering voice was created to sing that one song. The former Undertones frontman has a shot at songwriting with producer David A. Stewart, but wisely borrows numbers by Chrissie Hynde, Benmont Tench, and the Womack brothers. Veteran Eurythmics producer and guitarist Stewart and arranger Michael Kamen provide a fitting R&B backdrop for the headliner, who would not reach these heights again.
Seán Feargal Sharkey (born 13 August 1958) is a singer from Northern Ireland most widely known as the lead vocalist of pop punk band The Undertones in the 1970s and 1980s. The band split in 1983 citing musical differences, with Sharkey pursuing a solo career and other members of the band forming That Petrol Emotion the following year. Before his solo career took off, he was also the singer of the one-shot group The Assembly with ex-Yazoo and Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke (pre-Erasure).

This Ain't No Outerspace Ship is the fifth album by Love Tractor, released in 1987.

The band was formed in 1980 by guitarists Mark Cline, Mike Richmond and bassist Armistead Wellford. The band played their first few gigs with only a drum machine, but drummers Kit Swartz (formerly of The Side Effects) and Bill Berry (future R.E.M. drummer) soon took over rotating duties as drummer, later in 1983 Andrew Carter would take over as full-time drummer, after Carter's departure John Poe of Guadalcanal Diary rounded off the line up.

AllMusic Review:
On the basis of their first two albums, it was easy to peg Love Tractor as the artiest of the Athens, GA, jangle pop brigades, but anyone who saw them live knew that, like Pylon and R.E.M., they understood how to turn their quirks into potent party music when they took the stage in front of a lively crowd (too bad they never recorded their potent cover version of "You Dropped the Bomb on Me").

On This Ain't No Outer Space Ship, Love Tractor finally made their peace with the human voice after an initial reluctance to write lyrics; nearly all the tracks here are vocals, and their words on "Outside With Ma," "Night Club Scene," and "Small Town" are as sharply witty as their music. They also achieved a new approachability in their songs, never quite shedding their Feelies-like angularity, but letting a surer sense of rhythm give it a greater warmth, and the album has a stronger, funkier undertow as a result -- this is smart music that you can actually dance to.

And the goofy but potent cover of the Gap Band's "Party Train" is clever without a hint of irony. This Ain't No Outer Space Ship is Love Tractor's most purely pleasurable album, and proves that even smart people can throw a good party when they put their mind to it.

Atlanta's Burning Down is the third studio album by Dickey Betts & Great Southern, released in 1978.

AllMusic Review:
On his third solo outing -- and his second with his backing band Great Southern -- Allman Brothers lead guitarist Dickey Betts moves back into the deep-fried Southern boogie that the Brothers are (in)famous for and serves it up with just a smidgen of country and comes out with another winner.

Once again the mood is laid back and greasy with the guitars taking center stage in a funky, spunky mix that concentrates as much on the backbeat as it does on the swinging Southern boogie blues. Hence Betts digs deep into New Orleans as a source of inspiration on tracks like "Good Time Feeling," "Dealin' With the Devil," and "Back on the Road Again." Again relying heavily on the harmonica stylings of Topper Price for color and nuance, Betts uses this cue as a way of bringing the entire band into the proceedings this time out.

While it's true that his guitar is the centerpiece of the album, Great Southern is present more as a unit than as Betts' backing band. On the title track, a ballad that offers a ghostly narrative of the end of the Civil war, Betts also uses Bob Dylan's backing choir of Bonnie Bramlet, Clydie King, and Shirley Mathews for added emotional impact as well as a string section. While the string section could have been dispensed with, it doesn't hurt too much as the integrity of the song is so focused and sharp it's a minor nuisance. Production on this set is a bit muddier than on the Great Southern album that preceded it, and this is a good thing. There is more immediacy in the band's presence on the record than the studio's. Given that this was issued in 1978, when the bottom was about to drop out of rock & roll in favor of things like new wave and rap, this album holds up surprisingly well over two decades later. The shuffle and roll that was then Betts' trademark is refreshingly untouched by the production or musical excesses of the time. There is no attempt to be "relevant" or "cutting edge." But there is no retro feel on this disc either; it sounds consistent with a man's vision who's always considered himself right on time and still does.

Loud, tough, and funky, Atlanta's Burning Down is a winner.
The standout tracks are "Good Time Feeling" and "Atlanta's Burning Down". The title track is a sentimental narrative about a soldier's wife being in Atlanta during the burning of the city, while he was fighting in Virginia. The Guest musicians were Bonnie Bramlett, Clydie King (background singer for Ray Charles, Phil Spector, Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama", Linda Ronstadt’s “You’re No Good”, Elton John’s “The Bitch Is Back”, BB King, Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, Bob Dylan, Joe Walsh) and Sherlie Matthews on background vocals.

In 1998, newspapers reported that Bob Dylan's then girlfriend, Susan Ross, had stated that Dylan had been secretly married to Clydie King and had two children by her. In the 1970s, she recorded as Brown Sugar. King died on January 7, 2019, at the age of 75.

Volume One is the debut country album by Don Williams, released in 1973.

AllMusic Review:
Don Williams's first album as a country singer was originally released on Cowboy Jack Clement's JMI label before being snapped up by ABC-Dot the following year.

There were four hits on this record; not a small feat for any artist much less on the first try. Over the years Williams has made some fine records but none better than this.
The album closes with the Bob McDill classic “Amanda”. The song was the B-side of “Come Early Morning” and managed to chart, reaching Billboard #33/Cashbox #18, as many disc jockeys played both sides of the record. I think it could have been Don’s first top ten single if JMI had issued it as a separate single. Six years later Waylon Jennings would take the song to #1 on all of the country charts.

In 2016, Williams announced he was retiring from touring and cancelled all his scheduled shows. "It's time to hang my hat up and enjoy some quiet time at home. I'm so thankful for my fans, my friends and my family for their everlasting love and support," he said in a statement. In 2017, Williams died in Mobile, Alabama due to emphysema, aged 78.

On the Third Day is the third studio album by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), released in 1973.

From this album on, the word The was dropped from the band's name.

"Showdown" was a favorite of John Lennon at the time, who dubbed the band "Son of Beatles".

Although he didn't record on the album, Hugh McDowell did appear on this front cover of the U.S. album seen at right, which was an unusual photograph taken by famed photographer Richard Avedon that had ELO displaying their navels.

In 1946, Avedon had set up his own studio and began providing images for magazines including Vogue and Life. He soon became the chief photographer for Harper's Bazaar. By the 1960s, Avedon was making studio portraits of civil rights workers, politicians and cultural dissidents of various stripes in an America fissured by discord and violence. He branched out into photographing patients of mental hospitals, the Civil Rights Movement, and protesters of the Vietnam War. Avedon also created two well known sets of portraits of The Beatles. The first, taken in mid to late 1967, became one of the first major rock poster series, and consisted of five psychedelic portraits of the group — four heavily solarized individual color portraits and a black-and-white group portrait. The next year he photographed the much more restrained portraits that were included with The Beatles LP in 1968. In 1973 he shot Electric Light Orchestra with all the members exposing their bellybuttons for recording, On the Third Day. Photographer Annie Leibovitz names Avedon as a major influence.

L.A. Midnight is the twentieth studio electric blues album by B. B. King, released in 1972.

It features two extended guitar jams with fellow guitarists Jesse Ed Davis (member of Taj Mahal and played with Eric Clapton, John Lennon, and George Harrison) and Joe Walsh. It also features Taj Mahal on harmonica and guitar.

AllMusic Review:
This release comes straight from B.B. King's commercial peak (that is, prior to the unprecedented Top Ten success of Riding with the King in 2000), and it is a perplexing LP where greatness and aimlessness lie side by side.

Using a freely eclectic mix of sidemen from Los Angeles, King strides to some sterling performances in certain tracks. The King is at his sly peak on "I Got Some Help I Don't Need," uproariously humorous and hurt at the same time, with crazy wah-wah filigrees laced within, and "Can't You Hear Me Talking to You" is also tight and right. One of his best recordings of "Sweet Sixteen" leads off side two, where the lyric is updated to suit the times ("I just got back from Vietnam, baby/And you know I'm a long, long way from New Orleans") and band, singer and his guitar rise to an emotional crescendo down the stretch. Yet "(I Believe) I've Been Blue Too Long" falters on a clumsy riff and can't get going, and the rest of the album is frittered away with directionless blues jamming.

Guitarists Jesse Ed Davis and Joe Walsh join King on the two longest jams ("Midnight," "Lucille's Granny") yet they don't really mesh that well. Get this one second-hand for the outstanding disciplined stuff and don't sweat the rest; as per the nature of the beast, some jams don't yield pay dirt.

What If We Fall In Love? is a duet album by Crystal Gayle and Gary Morris, released in 1986.

Three of its tracks charted on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart: "Makin' Up for Lost Time" (reached Number 1), "Another World" (reached number 4), and "All of This and More".

"Another World" became the theme song of the NBC daytime soap opera of the same name; Crystal appeared in a few shows of the series around this time as herself, almost becoming a victim of the serial killer plot airing at the time. "Makin' Up for Lost Time" had been previously featured in the night time drama Dallas.

Gary Morris is known for the 1983 ballad "The Wind Beneath My Wings", his became one of the earliest hit versions of the song; a better-known version by Bette Midler would top the Billboard Hot 100 in 1989. His credits include more than twenty-five other chart singles on the Billboard country charts, including five No. 1 hits. He has also released nine studio albums. Morris later opened a music publishing office in Nashville, with one of his employees being future star Faith Hill.

Morris took a break from touring to pursue a serious acting career. One of his first big roles was in the Broadway production of Les Misérables, as Jean Valjean. The full symphonic recording of Les Misérables is a platinum-selling, Grammy Award-winning album and features Morris' vocals throughout in the role of Valjean. Morris has also appeared in a production of Puccini's opera La Boheme with fellow country/pop singer Linda Ronstadt.

I Am Somebody is a spoken word album by Rev. Jesse Jackson, released in 1971.

Jesse Louis Jackson Sr. (born October 8, 1941) is an American civil rights activist, Baptist minister, and politician. Jackson was born in Greenville, South Carolina, to Helen Burns (1924–2015), a 16-year-old high school student, and her 33-year-old married neighbor, Noah Louis Robinson (1908–1997). One year after Jesse's birth, his mother married Charles Henry Jackson, a post office maintenance worker who later adopted the boy. Jesse was given his stepfather's name in the adoption, but as he grew up, he also maintained a close relationship with Robinson. He considered both men to be his fathers. As a young child, Jackson was taunted by other children about his out-of-wedlock birth, and has said these experiences helped motivate him to succeed. Living under segregation laws, Jackson was taught to go to the back of the bus and use separate water fountains—practices he accepted until the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955. He attended the racially segregated Sterling High School in Greenville, where he was elected student class president.

"I Am – Somebody" is a poem written in the 1950s by Reverend William Holmes Borders, Sr., senior pastor at Wheat Street Baptist Church and civil rights activist in Atlanta, GA. The poem is often recited by Reverend Jesse Jackson. Jackson recited the free verse poem on Sesame Street in 1971, recited in a call and response fashion by Jackson and the children. During the segment children of all races were scattered all over the Sesame Street set, on the street, benches, fire escapes, and led by Jackson in the poem.

About a month after Dr. Seuss died in 1991, Saturday Night Live paid tribute to the book Green Eggs and Ham, by having Jackson appear on the "Weekend Update" segment and recite it in the same oratative fashion he performs the poem.

He was a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984 and 1988 and served as a shadow U.S. Senator for the District of Columbia from 1991 to 1997.

In 2001, it was revealed Jackson had an affair with a staffer that resulted in the birth of a daughter in 1999. Jackson was paying $4,000 a month in child support as of 2001. In 2017, Jackson was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

Dreaming #11 is the second EP by guitarist Joe Satriani, released in 1988.

The EP reached No. 42 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and remained on that chart for 26 weeks. Its sole studio track, "The Crush of Love", reached No. 6 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart and was nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 1990 Grammy Awards. The remaining three tracks were recorded live during the Surfing With the Alien tour in 1987. The title track, absent on the EP, would later be released on Satriani's album Time Machine in 1993.

AllMusic Review:
Dreaming #11 is something of an oddity: a mini-disc released in 1988 with three live tracks and one new studio track. The live tracks, taken from the Surfing with the Alien tour and featuring the powerful duo of Stuart Hamm on bass and Jonathan Mover on drums, showcase Satriani's outstanding talents in a live atmosphere; however, they've been heard before ("Ice Nine" was on Surfing with the Alien and "Memories" and "Hordes of Locusts" came from Not of This Earth).

The studio track, "The Crush of Love," immediately became a favorite of Satriani fans everywhere, mostly because of its catchy tune and its creative use of the wah-wah pedal to give the guitar an almost human voice.

A recommended disc for musicians and fans, but not essential to the casual collector.
Joseph Satriani (born July 15, 1956) is an American instrumental rock guitarist and multi-instrumentalist. He was inspired to play guitar at age 14, after hearing of the death of Jimi Hendrix. He heard the news during football practice, then announced to his coach that he was quitting to become a guitarist.

Early in his career, Satriani worked as a guitar instructor, with many of his former students achieving fame, such as Steve Vai (Zappa), Larry LaLonde (Primus), Rick Hunolt (Exodus), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Andy Timmons, David Bryson (Counting Crows), Charlie Hunter, Kevin Cadogan (Third Eye Blind), and Alex Skolnick (Testament); he then went on to have a successful solo music career. He is a 15-time Grammy Award nominee and has sold over 10 million albums, making him the biggest-selling instrumental rock guitarist of all time. Satriani has the fourth most Grammy Award nominations (15, after Brian McKnight, Snoop Dogg and Morten Lindberg) of any artist without winning.

In 1988, Satriani was recruited by Mick Jagger as lead guitarist for his first solo tour. Satriani briefly toured with Deep Purple. He was invited to join the Greg Kihn Band, who were on the downside of their career, but whose generosity helped Satriani pay off the overwhelming credit-card debt from recording his first album Not of This Earth. Joe Satriani also sang backing vocals on the self-titled Crowded House album. His "Bells of Lal (Part One)" was featured during an eerie scene in the 1996 Billy Bob Thornton movie Sling Blade, while Carl is sharpening a lawnmower blade to kill the menacing Doyle Hargraves played by Dwight Yoakam.

In 2008, Satriani filed a copyright infringement suit against Coldplay in the United States District Court. Satriani's suit claims that the Coldplay song "Viva la Vida" includes "substantial original portions" of the Satriani song "If I Could Fly" from his 2004 album, Is There Love in Space?. The Coldplay song in question received two Grammy Awards for Song of the Year. An unspecified settlement was reached between the parties.

Satriani has been the guitarist for the supergroup Chickenfoot since joining the band in 2008 with former Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. The band features Hagar on vocals, Satriani on guitar, Anthony on bass, and Smith on drums.

The Better Life is the debut studio album by American rock band 3 Doors Down, released in 2000.

This is the only album on which lead singer Brad Arnold played drums. "Kryptonite", "Loser", and "Be Like That" all reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It is the band's best-selling album to date, 6 times Platinum. 3 Doors Down has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

3 Doors Down is an American rock band from Escatawpa, Mississippi, that formed in 1996.

In 2013, bassist Todd Harrell was charged with vehicular homicide. Harrell had received 360 Oxycodone and 60 Oxycontin pills from his doctor in less than 30 days. Harrell was also charged with bringing a controlled substance into a correctional detention facility, after it was discovered during the booking process at Nashville's Metro Jail that Harrell had a plastic bag hidden in his sock that contained eight Xanax pills, twenty four Oxycodone pills, and four Oxymorphone pills. Court dates for the 2013 vehicular homicide charge and for his previous DUI from 2012 were postponed since Harrell had voluntarily gone into rehab. In 2014, Harrell was arrested in Mississippi once again for a DUI. Afterward, the band released a statement that Harrell was permanently out of the band.

Former guitarist Matt Roberts died on August 20, 2016 at the age of 38 from a prescription drug overdose.
