EDGAR WINTER GROUP
They Only Come Out at Night is the third studio album by Edgar Winter and the first by the Edgar Winter Group. A commercial hit, the album reached the #3 slot on the Billboard 200 chart and also features two of the band’s biggest songs: “Frankenstein” (#1 on the Billboard Hot 100) and “Free Ride” (#14 on that same chart). Musically, besides the country track “Round & Round,” the album features a mixture of mostly blues rock and boogie woogie induced rock in a generally carefree and upbeat sound. The album eventually sold two million copies.
In 2006, the album was reissued on Super Audio CD by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab as well as the 2008 Quadraphonic rendition was reissued by SBME Sony BMG (Bertelsmann Music Group) Music Entertainment. In the same year, it was featured in the video game Prey.
Writer Stephen King mentioned the album (specifically its cover artwork) in his 1975 novel ‘Salem’s Lot.
The album is mentioned in the song “I Love My Dad” by Sun Kil Moon on their 2014 album Benji.
The Australian cassette issue of the album in 1973 transposes “Undercover Man” and “Frankenstein” (i.e. Frankenstein ends side A instead of side B) and has a wholly different cover: a photo of the band posing against a black background. The American cassette follows the same track order as the Australian issue, but retains the original cover.
The album was certified gold April 30, 1973 by the RIAA.
Besides being a commercial success, the album has received many highly positive critical reviews. Writing for AllMusic, critic Michael B. Smith praised the “party” and “sing-along” feel of the album. He remarked, “While this album will forever be remembered for spawning the huge hit singles ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘Free Ride,’ there’s plenty more to appreciate on this stellar release.”
Music is the third album by American singer-songwriter Carole King. It is a continuation of the style laid down in Tapestry. The album was released in December 1971 and quickly rose to the top of the charts. It features songs such as “It’s Going to Take Some Time” (US No. 12 by The Carpenters), “Sweet Seasons,” a No. 9 hit for Carole King, and “Brother, Brother”.
Carole King: Music experienced immediate success and was certified gold on December 9, 1971, days after release. It was certified platinum on July 17, 1995. The album reportedly sold 1,300,000 copies in the United States on the day of its release.
Music entered the top ten at No. 8, becoming the first of many weeks both Tapestry and Carole King: Music would occupy the top ten simultaneously. The album hit No. 1 on New Year’s Day 1972 and stayed there for three consecutive weeks.
King plays the piano and celeste on many tracks. – Wikipedia
