Snakes and Ladders is the fourth album by Gerry Rafferty. It was released in 1980, following the success of his previous two albums, City to City and Night Owl. The album charted at No. 15 in the UK but only reached No. 61 in the US. The album was released on CD in 1998 [EMI 7 46609-2] but deleted soon after that, and it got reissued on CD on August 2012 as a 2-CD set with "Sleepwalking." Some of the songs are available on compilation albums. One of the songs, "The Garden Of England", was recorded at Beatles producer George Martin's AIR studio in Montserrat. All the songs were original Rafferty compositions, though one – "Johnny's Song" – was a remake of a song which had been previously released by his former band Stealer's Wheel, and another – "Didn't I" – was a remake of a song from Rafferty's 1971 album Can I Have My Money Back.
"Here They Go Again" is the first album released by the English rock band The Company of Snakes. It is compiled of live recordings from concerts at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany (first disc) and in the Norwegian city of Trondheim (second disc). Because of the musical background of band leaders Bernie Marsden and Micky Moody, almost the entire set list consists of old Whitesnake songs. The album title "Here They Go Again" also refers to a famous Whitesnake song "Here I Go Again" (of which there has been two versions; one released on Saints and Sinners and one released on Whitesnake. The Company of Snakes focuses more on the original version). Of this album, "Kinda Wish You Would" is the only song that made it onto T.C.O.S.'s (only) studio album Burst The Bubble.
Although best known from their days in Whitesnake, Bernie Marsden & Micky Moody prove here that good old fashioned blues/rock is far from dead. This album was a taster for their new studio album also being released on Talking Elephant. Here we see the band rocking the stage with classic Whitesnake numbers. Fronted by Johnny Lande Norwegian hard rock and heavy metal singer. Known for being the former vocalist of bands Ark, Beyond Twilight, Millenium, Vagabond, The Snakes, and most notably of power metal band Masterplan, as well as for his solo career as Jorn.
"Once Bitten…" is the first album of British-Norwegian Hard rock supergroup The Snakes, released in August 1998. The Snakes feature Jorn Lande on vocals, ex-Whitesnake members Micky Moody and Bernie Marsden on guitars, Sid Ringsby (Jorn / TNT) on bass and Willy Bendiksen (Jorn) on drums. Great CD produced by Ronni Le Tekro (TNT guitarist) and heavily recommended for fans of Whitesnake.
Snakes live in forests and deserts, underground and underwater, and in every continent but Antarctica. Over the course of 150 million years, they have relentlessly adapted, changing to fit the circumstances of their climate, habitat, and access to food. Take an up-close look at cobras, black mambas, vipers, flying snakes, and some of the other 3,000 species alive today. From evil incarnate to one of evolution's great success stories, we show how the snake continues slithering forward on the path to survival.
When Rush issued Vapor Trails in 2002, they revealed that – even after Neil Peart's personal tragedies in the 1990s had cast the group's future in doubt – they were back with a vengeance. The sound was hard-hitting, direct, and extremely focused. Lyrically, Peart went right after the subject matter he was dealing with – and it was in the aftermath of 9/11 as well, which couldn't help but influence his lyric writing…
