"Faith" is the debut solo studio album by the English singer George Michael, released on 30 October 1987 by Columbia Records and Epic Records. The album has won several awards including the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1989. To date, the album has sold over 25 million copies worldwide, and received diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). "Faith" spawned six top five singles that substantially helped it dominate the charts in 1987 and 1988.
Gary Rossington, a founding and current member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, consistently transcends genres and appeals to many generations of music fans. Gary’s last project outside of Lynyrd Skynyrd was Rossington Collins Band. The 1981 Gold album Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere yielded the rock hit “Don’t Misunderstand Me,” featuring Gary’s wife Dale Krantz-Rossington on lead vocals. Take It On Faith is the couple’s first recording together since then, the result is magical and timeless.
Reissues come loaded with rare bonus tracks - live versions of “Collision” and the Burt Bacharach and Hal David classic, “This Guy’s In Love With You”, plus rare mixes of “Last Cup of Sorrow”, “Pristina”, and more.
Jettisoning not only the funk-metal rhythms of their earlier work but also long-time guitar hero and wacky eyewear model James B Martin, King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime for the most part pursued a more back-to-basics garage sound that slotted in with the post-grunge environment of 1995. The album holds up well today, with Mike Patton achieving new heights of visceral howling on the likes of Cuckoo For Caca, but among the bonus tracks there's little to get excited about other than the tragic-comedy Bee Gees cover - I Started A Joke.
The original 10-song album from 1985 has been remastered from the original tapes and is expanded to included nine bonus tracks including demos, new mixes and live performances.
