Two Top 40 Mainstream singles, “Get Over It” and “Love Will Keep Us Alive”, were released from the album. It also features an acoustic version of “Hotel California”.

Monday 11/23/2020 2:15am ET: Feature LP: Def Leppard – London to Vegas (2020)

The English hard rock band Def Leppard have released 11 original studio albums, two live albums, four compilation albums, one cover album, and three extended plays.

Def Leppard was formed in 1977 by vocalist Joe Elliott, bass player Rick “Sav” Savage, guitarist Pete Willis, and drummer Tony Kenning. They later released the EP The Def Leppard E.P. in 1979. The band signed with Mercury Records and released their debut full-length album On Through the Night. The band’s follow up was High ‘n’ Dry, which reached number 26 in the UK and was certified platinum two times in the United States. Their next album, titled Pyromania, would be their big breakthrough album and would later sell more than 10 million copies in the United States alone.

After touring in support of Pyromania, the band released Hysteria which topped the American and British album charts and is their best-selling album worldwide, selling more than 12 million copies in the United States alone and over 25 million worldwide. Adrenalize, released in 1992, debuted at number one on the UK Album Chart and the US Billboard 200 and launched several successful singles, including “Let’s Get Rocked” and “Make Love Like a Man” and went on to sell 8 million albums worldwide. In 1996, the band released its sixth studio album, Slang; while successful, the album could not reach the precedent set by Def Leppard’s previous albums and was certified gold in the United States. After three years, Def Leppard released Euphoria, which is the band’s last certified album by the RIAA, CRIA, and BPI.

At the start of the 21st century, the band released X. Four years later, Def Leppard released the studio/cover album, Yeah!, which included covers by Thin Lizzy and The Kinks. On 25 April 2008, the band released Songs from the Sparkle Lounge, which included the single “Nine Lives” featuring country singer Tim McGraw. The band released Mirrorball, its first live album, in 2011, which would be followed by another live album in 2013, Viva! Hysteria, featuring the Hysteria album played live in its entirety, from their Las Vegas residency at the Hard Rock Hotel. The band released a self-titled studio album on 30 October 2015.

Thursday 8/20/2020 12am ET: Feature LP: Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers – Pack Up the Plantation: Live! (1985)

Pack Up the Plantation: Live! is the first official live album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released November 25,1985. It was primarily recorded at the Wiltern Theatre during their 1985 tour but also includes several tracks from previous tours. It was released as a double LP or single cassette and compact disc.

A concert film of the Wiltern Theatre performance, also titled Pack Up the Plantation: Live! was released on home video in 1986. It included songs that did not make the album, such as originals “Don’t Do Me Like That” and “Don’t Come Around Here No More”, as well as covers such as “Little Bit O’ Soul” and “Route 66”.

Stevie Nicks, who has collaborated with Petty and has appeared with him on tour frequently, sings with Petty on two songs on the record. The first is a cover of the Searchers’ 1964 hit “Needles and Pins”, which was released as a single and climbed into the Billboard top 40. Nicks’ second track is “Insider”, one of two cuts from Petty’s 1981 LP Hard Promises that feature her.

No other singles were released from the album in the US, although a cover of the Byrds’ 1967 hit “So You Want to Be a Rock ‘n’ Roll Star” was released in Europe. “Refugee” was also issued in Europe on a four-track EP. Another fan favorite, “Breakdown”, appears at the end of side one. It is notable because the audience takes over from Petty at the start, singing the first two verses and the chorus loud enough to be picked up by the mics. He quipped, “You’re gonna put me out of a job”, to huge applause, and then launched back into a reprise of the second verse.

The recording garnered somewhat mixed reviews, with Sandy Robertson, writing for Sounds, describing it as “a turgid four-sided video soundtrack”. Jimmy Guterman, writing for Rolling Stone, said that Petty “sounds impassioned and impressive when he lays into his early songs” and that the Heartbreakers are “an undeniably great band”.

Tuesday 6pm: Spotlight Artist – Live

Live (often typeset as LĪVE or +LĪVE+) is an American rock band from York, Pennsylvania, consisting of Ed Kowalczyk (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Chad Taylor (lead guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass), and Chad Gracey (drums).

Live achieved worldwide success with their 1994 album Throwing Copper, which sold eight million copies in the U.S. The band had a string of hit singles in the mid-1990s including “Lightning Crashes”, which stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 10 consecutive weeks and the Modern Rock Tracks (now Alternative Songs) chart for nine weeks from February 25 to April 22, 1995. The band has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. Their last three studio albums fared only moderately well in the U.S., but they continued to enjoy success in the Netherlands, South Africa, Australia, and Brazil.

When touring, Live has used additional musicians, including Ed Kowalczyk’s younger brother Adam, British keyboardist Michael “Railo” Railton, rhythm guitarist Christopher Thorn of Blind Melon, and guitarist Zak Loy of Alpha Rev, Dames Violent and Mothers Anthem.

On November 30, 2009, Taylor revealed that what had initially been termed a two-year hiatus was more likely the end of the band. An acrimonious split soon occurred, with Kowalczyk leaving the band. However, Live continued with singer Chris Shinn and released the album The Turn in October 2014. Kowalczyk rejoined the band in December 2016 and in 2018 they released a new EP “Local 717”.
