Following in the footsteps of Nouvelle Vague and Hayseed Dixie, German trio the Baseballs proved that the concept of the covers band needn't always be confined to weddings and bar mitzvahs with their debut album, Strike. Reviving the sounds of the '50s, their old-fashioned rock & roll interpretations of contemporary pop hits saw them enter the Top Ten across nine European countries, but now with the element of surprise removed, they face an uphill task if they are to avoid the novelty wearing off with their second album, Strings 'n' Stripes. Luckily, the Elvis lookalikes have upped the ante on their 14 tracks with a braver selection of song choices and their first-ever original composition, "Hard Not to Cry," an authentic barbershop quartet-inspired tale of heartbreak which could comfortably fit onto a vintage jukebox playlist.
The Baseballs are a rock and roll band founded in Berlin in 2007. They became popular with rock and roll cover versions of modern hits such as "Umbrella" by Rihanna and "Hot n Cold" by Katy Perry. The band members are only credited by their first names. Their version of "Umbrella" was a hit in more than six countries. Strike! is the debut album released by The Baseballs, a German rock 'n' roll cover band, in 2009.
Little Feat were on Warner Bros Records from 1971's Little Feat through 1990's Representing the Mambo, but for a full decade of those 20 years, the band was inactive. …these albums have the songs and sensibility that built their legacy, which does include their remarkably successful return in 1988. All the albums are presented as mini-LPs and the set is affordable, making this a very appealing bargain for all kinds of Feat fanatics.
