Woman was the debut solo album from former Scaffold talent Michael McGear; an album he intended to be a more straightforward, serious affair. Surprisingly, this album is something of a lost jewel, the delightful sound of a young talent trying on different sounds and finding his creative voice.
This one-off, one-night-only Outlaw Country supergroup was formed to poke fun and sing about the joys of old age, with all-original material provided by Shel Silverstein. It’s a fun collection of songs, and a fantastic last hurrah for the songwriter, who passed away less than a year later.
British pop singer Eden Kane had a very brief run as a chart-topping artist in the pre-British Invasion era, and though soon overshadowed by rock and roll groups, he produced an impressive collection of fantastic pop singles, all handily compiled in this two-disc collection.
Smoke, Snort, Swallow, Shoot: Legendary Binges, Lost Weekends, & Other Feats Of Rock & Roll Incoherence (Lesser Gods)
This collection of excerpts from notable and notorious rock and roll biographies and memoirs focuses on tales of excess and abuse from all corners of the music world.
Short-lived roots-rock group Fairground Attraction seemed an odd choice for pop stardom, but in 1988, they quickly became chart-topping successes. The success was short-lived, and they imploded not long after. This collection compiles their entire recorded output, and documents the brief existence of a promising young band.
This six-song mini-album offers to the world a collection of unreleased songs recorded by Frederick Michael St. Jude, shortly after the release of his debut album, Here Am I. Though raw, they highlight his potent, powerful, Bowie-like voice.
A loving, intimate–yet respectfully guarded–peek into the life of Prince Rogers Nelson, as told by his ex-wife. It’s a beautiful yet tragic tale of love and loss that serves as a tribute to the man she loved.
Though it was a controversial move, Peter Hook & The Light’s decision to set out on tour performing the music of Joy Division was a good one. This live document from 2012 is a scorching tribute to his fallen band.
RIP Kevin Garcia.
It’s been a little while since the last issue of one of our favorite ‘zines, Last Night At The Casino, but this latest installment is a little different than its predecessors–and all the better for it, too!
