The red rocker returns with a 17 track collection of live greatest hits that spans his entire career! From his work with the seminal band Montrose, through his days with the mighty Van Halen and his work as a platinum selling solo artist, Hallelujah is a must have for any fan of Sammy Hagar and good ole' rock and roll! The CD also includes some very special, once in a lifetime performances with ex Van Halen singer Gary Cherone who joins Sammy for "when its love" and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony who lends his signature bass talents and backup vocals to "Right Now."
"…a full-on rock/acid house classic that easily showed the way for Primal Scream and hordes of others in following years." ~allmusic
German band formed in early 1960's, previously known as the Skiffle Lords. Known for their fashionable attire and 'Prince Valiant' style haircuts. By 1964 they were awarded the title "The German Beatles" in Hamburg's Star Club of Germany. Currently still active, released a new CD album in 2015 titled "Now More Than Ever!" Although Germany had its place in rock & roll's evolution in the 1960s, it was primarily as an incubator for British bands playing grueling stints in Hamburg, not for homegrown talent. The Lords were about the best of a weak scene, populated by bands that could never seem to shake themselves free of stodgy Central European oom-pah folk traditions…
John Cale's 1992 live Fragments of a Rainy Season holds a special place in the hearts of longtime fans. Cale was no stranger to concert sets. Among his most notorious are the snarling Sabotage/Live from CBGB's and 1986's howling Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Fragments captures Cale completely solo. His iconic singing voice, rainbow variety of melodies, and poetic lyrics are accompanied only by his piano or acoustic guitar. It's easily his most welcoming album, the one that provides a solid introduction as he ranges through his back catalog.
