Essential: a masterpiece of Progressive Rock music
“Freaks” is a song by British neo-progressive rock band Marillion. First released in 1985 on the B-side to the number five UK hit single “Lavender”, in November 1988 it was released in a live version on a double A-side single together with the band’s 1985 number two hit, “Kayleigh”. The single was intended to promote the forthcoming double-live album The Thieving Magpie, which documents the band’s history with singer Fish, who had left the band in October 1988; as such, this was Marillion’s last ever single to feature Fish on vocals and cover art by Mark Wilkinson, who would go on to collaborate with Fish.
Always With Me, Always With You is an instrumental ballad by American virtuoso guitarist Joe Satriani.
The song was released in 1987, with the album Surfing with the Alien, and was the unique single of the album to touch the radios.
Coming off such conceptual, theatrical, sleazy hard rock records as the massively successful School's Out (1972) and Billion Dollar Babies (1973), the Alice Cooper group decided that their next release would be more along the lines of their earlier, more straightforward work (à la Love It to Death). While Muscle of Love was a gold-certified Top Ten success, it performed below expectations (their previous two albums peaked at number two and number one, respectively) and would unfortunately prove to be the original Alice Cooper band's last studio album together…
Excellent addition to any rock music collection
A largely forgotten album; worth a look.
Indio was a project by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Peterson. Indio released one album, 1989’s Big Harvest, featuring several high-profile artists including Bill Dillon and David Rhodes on guitars, Larry Klein on bass and Brenda Russell and Joni Mitchell singing background vocals. Other collaborators included Indian violinist L. Subramaniam.
Excellent addition to any Rock music collection
I would give all of these songs a 5 (with a few possible exceptions). The marks deducted were for the albums short playing time (approx. 35 minutes) and the situation of the track listing (I would rather "Simple Dreams" switched with "Country Music"). Don't think this takes too much from the album, however; it is still worth every cent and I would recommend it to anyone, not just aspiring virtuoso bassists.
