Producer Jerry Wexler puts the earthy vocals of Maggie Bell in a beautiful setting here. She stretches John Prine's "Souvenirs" to the max with Steve Gadd ably assisting by splashing the drums as deep as Bell's vocals. Her uptempo version of J.J. Cale's "After Midnight" is more captivating than Eric Clapton's; she oozes that Etta James sexuality while Reggie Young throws some tasty guitar into the semi-calypso groove. Bell's identity is unique on much of the material, but a couple of tunes have her paying tribute to some of her sisters. The title track, "Queen of the Night," is drenched in gorgeous harmonies by the Sweet Inspirations and is pure Genya Ravan, but conversely, the cover of "A Woman Left Lonely," embraced totally by Janis Joplin on Pearl, is a sweet vocal and totally alien to how Joplin ripped the song to shreds so wonderfully. It works on an entirely different level on Queen of the Night – Bell's voice is an instrument that slips into different styles on a moment's notice.

Genre: Rock & Roll, Rockabilly | Label: Rhythm Bomb

13 tracks - Fantastic album - just came out on the Rhythm Bomb label! All songs are written by the band. A great mixture of Rhythm 'n' Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Swing, even alternative Rock elements and Roots music! This album is definitely a must have for those of you who enjoy artists like 'The Hillbilly Moon Explosion', the french female roots music singer 'Zaz', 'The Beat From Palookaville' and for those who just are open to some 'newer' sounds! This is and I really mean that in a positive way no authentic stuff album - this is really an own style album which definitely is it worth to listen to it!

That's right, King! in Swedish, "Kong" rather than "Drottning"! Christina (1626-1689) was the only surviving child of Sweden's greatest monarch Gustavus Adolphus Vasa, who raised her to rule as a king and whose ministers executed his will by crowning the six-year-old girl King! Christina ruled under a regency until age 18, and then personally and earnestly over some eight years until her abdication in 1654. Her involvement in Swedish affair didn't terminate with her abdication, however. She returned to Sweden several times, on the last of which she might well have resumed her throne but for her whimsical conversion to Catholicism. She also drew her wealth, in her initial years in Italy, from vast estates in Sweden.

Queen played three sold-out shows at the legendary Rainbow Theatre, Finsbury Park, North London, in 1974. The first was in March, the crowning glory of the Queen II tour; the band then returned for two more nights in November as part of the Sheer Heart Attack tour. 1974 was a year of high achievement for Freddie, Brian, Roger and John; as well as releasing two albums, from which came their first two hit singles, “Seven Seas Of Rhye” and “Killer Queen,” the latter charting all around the world, they completed major tours across the UK, America and Europe…

Ultimate Rarities 1986-1991

By 1986 Queen’s flirtation with film soundtracks had pretty much come to an end. They weren’t prolific, but what began in 1980’s Flash Gordon with fill involvement with the film score ended with the band writing several original songs to Highlander and lending “One Vision” to the Lou Gossette Jr. flick Iron Eagle. The fifth volume of Master Stroke’s Rare Cuts series continues the documentation of Queen rarities, focusing upon some material from the A Kind Of Magic sessions and continuing with The Miracle, their final artistic statement in the eighties…

The fourth volume of Master Stroke’s six volume Queen Rare Cuts series documents remixes of tracks from Hot Space through A Kind Of Magic. It starts off with a “naked” remix of “Under Pressure.” It sounds like the basic album cut, but Freddie’s and David Bowie’s vocals are pushed to the center of the mix. The piano and guitar are also highlighted and the famous bass line is pushed deeper into the mix…
