If you could only own two Edgar Winter albums, these would be them, and now they’re here on one CD! These 1972 and 1974 LPs were easily his biggest, spawning the all-time classic hits Frankenstein and Free Ride not to mention Hangin’ Around; River’s Risin’, and Easy Street. Blues and rock rarely come together with such fire and flair as on these two ’70s essentials.
They Only Come Out at Night / Shock Treatment [Import]
2008 digitally remastered two-fer featuring a double dose of Edgar Winter on one CD: They Only Come Out at Night (1972) and Shock Treatment (1974). They Only Come Out at Night spawned the hit singles 'Frankenstein' and 'Free Ride'. The album collects 10 outstanding cuts, played with fervor by Edgar Winter, Chuck Ruff, Dan Hartman, Randy Jo Hobbs and Ronnie Montrose, along with guest artist/producer Rick Derringer. Shock Treatment begins with 'Some Kinda Animal' and then moves into the excellent Blues torcher 'Easy Street', which is painted with highlights from the substantial saxophone talent of Winter, not to mention some of his finest singing. Like They Only Come Out at Night, this recording includes a pair of haunting ballads, 'Maybe Someday You'll Call My Name' and 'Someone Take My Heart Away'. Beat Goes On.
