Fashioning themselves as rowdy Irish-American hooligans, they toured with various rap and alternative-rock bands after their breakthrough. You can also find them on the influential 1993 rock-rap collaborative Judgment Night movie soundtrack [MOVLP232] on which they perform a track together with Helmet.
Rapture is the second album by the American vocalist Anita Baker. It was released in 1986, becoming her breakout album, selling over 8 million copies worldwide (of which 5 million in the US) and earning her two Grammy Awards.
The album produced one moving hit after another, including "Sweet Love", "Caught up in the Rapture", "Same Ole Love" and "No One in This World". A re-release has been long overdue... Enjoy!
Classically trained violinist Tracy Bonham emerged from Boston with her first major-label release, The Burdens of Being Upright. The album yielded a significant radio hit with "Mother Mother," which leads the album, raising the bar for the rest of the record.
The album went gold within six months and later that year she was nominated for the Best Alternative Music Performance at the Grammy Awards and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance (for "Mother Mother").
The hits of this album are ofcourse the widely known "A Horse With No Name", "I Need You" and "Sandman". A classic to own and a stepping stone to into the world of folk-pop music.
Surrealistic lyrics, heavy chords and unexpected twists make Starsailor a brilliant album that admittedly, isn't for everybody, but endures as one of the most legendary albums ever made by a singer/songwriter.
