Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys came from NYC and had a Top 40 hit with "Good Old Rock 'n' Roll," a creative medley of archetypal 1950s rock hits. Their debut album, THE STREET GIVETH...AND THE STREET TAKETH AWAY, was released on Polydor in 1969 and was produced by none other than Jimi Hendrix.
Here are three of the best songs from the album:
1) "How I Spent My Summer"
3) "Good Old Rock 'n' Roll"
I found my copy of the Cat Mother album in a record shop in Athens, Ohio. $3.00 did the trick.
Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish alternative rock band, with members from Northern Ireland and Scotland. Formed at the University of Dundee in 1994, the band is now based in Glasgow. The band's first three records, the EP Starfighter Pilot, and the studio albums Songs for Polarbears and When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear Up, were commercially unsuccessful and were released by independent labels Electric Honey and Jeepster, respectively. When the band moved to a major record label Polydor Records, they released their 2003 album Final Straw which surpassed 4x platinum sales in the UK. This was the first time the band achieved significant commercial sales, following it up with international success in 2006 when Eyes Open sold 4.7 million copies worldwide. The songs "Run", "Chasing Cars" and "Signal Fire" are among the band's biggest hits. Snow Patrol have been nominated for three BRIT Awards and have won five Meteor Ireland Music Awards. In 2008, the band released their fifth studio album A Hundred Million Suns, and released their first compilation album, Up to Now in 2009. Worldwide, the band have sold over ten million albums......Background information
