Today’s band are one of only four acts of all time to hold the number one spot in the Billboard 100 for at least 50 weeks cumulatively. That puts them with Elvis, The Beatles and Mariah—very good company. It makes sense though, as what they did from a vocal/harmony standpoint was so unique. Although they're still making music today, there's no question that going back to their original tunes is the way to go—especially for a fiver.
His name is Robert Paulson…wait, sorry – thought this was a movie blog for a second there. Sometimes musicians have… more...
While so many things about the telecommunications business change daily, one thing has been very consistent over the last almost five decades—TDS and its employees actively give back to the communities we serve. So although bringing TDS Fiber to Sun Prairie, Wis. is new for us, it’s not an exception to our philanthropic approach. Our latest effort? Sponsoring the upcoming Tri 4 Schools triathlon on June 24th. Learn more about this great event and get some tips for finishing strong.
The Yeah Yeah Yeah's It's Blitz album crosses so many genres, if you’re a fan of rock, punk, alt rock, pop or anything electronic, I think you’ll enjoy this. You really do hear the time they took to make each single into something greater than jamming away in the studio, and that’s a nice change of pace in today’s world which lacks production values. Give these guys a chance today for $5 bucks— I think you’ll find yourself tapping your toes and craving more.
Backed by absolute mega-single “Smooth,” the album jumped into the forefront immediately upon release. The follow up single "Maria Maria" would also be a commercial success—which catapulted the album’s early sales. Now, some music fans agree the band is up there with the all-time greats, and some feel like they never had that ‘breakout’ smash hit album or single. Those who believed the latter, give this post, and this album, a once over (especially for only $5!).
Charlie Starr, Paul Jackson, Brit Turner and Richard Turner formed a band called Blackberry Smoke back in 2001. Based out of Atlanta, Georgia, they have released five studio albums with very modest success. Where they’ve generated a major following is with their live shows. If like me, you’ve never heard these guys before, give them a shot. Cheap is the best way to experience new.
Some musicians are iconic for the music, some for their personal lives, and some for who they became after their music career was finished. Today’s featured artist is world renowned for all three. His time in one of the greatest bands in history is legend, but his solo career was nothing to shake a stick at either. With 55 million albums sold solo and well over 100 million with the band—it’s easy to argue he deserves legendary status.
There is a standard list of iconic female vocalists out there, and it usually revolves around Whitney, Aretha, Florence and Mariah. Those women all had the luxury of being a solo performer, or at least having a band that was centered on the vocals. Today’s featured band has a lead singer undoubtedly as good as the ones above, but doesn’t seem to always get the accolades she deserves.
Wheels Of Fire was released in July of 1968. It would reach number three in the U.K. and number one in the U.S., becoming the first platinum-selling double album in history. Cream would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, and put on a handful of shows in 2005—all of which sold out within an hour. Music history for $5 bucks is like giving it away, take advantage on this Cheap Tunes Tuesday.
Is it possible to be one of the more influential acts of the ‘90s while only releasing three records? Moreover, what if one of those albums came out posthumously after the lead singer’s tragic passing? The 17 million albums sold worldwide would say it is—and their cult following, in spite of breaking up nearly 20 years ago, seems to have cemented their legacy.
