One Way Home is the third studio album by American rock band The Hooters and was released in 1987. The album peaked at #27 on the Billboard 200 chart on August 29, 1987.
Often overlooked, the Hooters' Nervous Night was a defining record not only for the band, but for 1985 itself. Filled to the brim with fun, danceable new wave-ish rock, the album is a wonderful representation of a lighthearted era. The peppy vocals of keyboardist Rob Hyman and guitarist Eric Bazilian give the band an assured, happy energy, while the sporadic use of the mandolin and melodica (a combination harmonica/keyboard) gives the group its distinctive sound. "And We Danced" and "Day by Day" became instant pop hits, but the remainder of Nervous Night is almost as strong. "All You Zombies," which refers to stories in the Bible, is the band's most powerful moment; along with "Where Do the Children Go," the track showed that the Hooters could be serious and dramatic as well as upbeat. Although the band wasn't able to maintain its momentum with subsequent records, Nervous Night remains a noteworthy contribution to mid-'80s rock and doesn't sound quite as dated as the work of some of the band's contemporaries.
"One Way Ticket to Hell …and Back" is the second album by British rock band The Darkness. It was released on 28 November 2005 through Atlantic Records and reached platinum status in the UK. The first single from the album, "One Way Ticket", reached #8 in the UK single charts as did the second single "Is It Just Me?"
VOODOO CIRCLE is the German/British band featuring members of PRIMAL FEAR and PINK CREAM 69. VOODOO CIRCLE's third album, "More Than One Way Home", will be released on February 22, 2013 via AFM Records. This way you get VOODOO CIRCLE-typical songs full of dynamic and variety. As „More Than One Way Home“ implies, there’s always more than one way that leads to the goal – and VOODOO CIRCLE show mastership in every terrain: powerful riff-driven hard rockers, profound tunes affected by the bluesy timbre of David Readman, as well as atmospheric ballads appear to be natural territory for the supergroup.
One Way was an American R&B/Funk band that was very popular in the late 1970s and throughout most of the 1980s. One Way was formed in 1979 in Detroit, Michigan as the newer incarnation of a band originally known as Soul Partners. The original members were Al Hudson, Alicia Myers, guitarists Dave Roberson and Cortez Harris, bassist Kevin McCord, drummer Gregory Green and keyboardist Jonathan Meadows. They first recorded as "Al Hudson and the Partners", scoring an R&B hit on the ABC label called "You Can Do It" in 1979.
The Hooters' first album of new material since 1993, TIME STAND STILL sounds as if the intervening 14 years had never happened. Featuring a full reunion of all five original members, as opposed to singer-songwriters Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian simply resurrecting the name, the Philadelphia quintet's familiar blend of traditional folk instruments and glossy rock remains. This includes Hyman's trademark melodica solos that gave the band their name. Along with 10 new songs, the album also includes a faithful cover of Don Henley's "The Boys of Summer".
Hooterization is a single-disc collection featuring all seven of the Hooters' charting singles, plus neglected album tracks and other obscurities. Since the bulk of the Hooters' best material – "And We Danced," "Day by Day," "All You Zombies," and "Where Do the Children Go" – is on their Nervous Night debut album, Hooterization is useful only for those collectors and listeners who want a compilation for the sake of having a compilation. Hooterization is too long and filled with too many bland tracks to make a consistently entertaining listen, which is not the case of Nervous Night, since it is shorter and contains all the hits. Certainly, Hooterization does a fine job of selecting the highlights from One Way Home and Zig Zag, but most casual fans will be satisfied with Nervous Night.
