Hoodoo (Krokus album) Hoodoo is the 16th album by the Swiss hard rock/heavy metal band Krokus. It includes a cover of the Steppenwolf song Born to be Wild. The album failed to reach the Billboard Top 200 in the U.S., unlike their last album ( Hellraiser ), but the release was successful overseas.
It was released on December 21, 1999, by Interscope Records. The album features production from 2Pac’s close producers Tony Pizarro, Johnny J and QDIII and appearances from Big Syke and Nate Dogg. Baby Don’t Cry (Keep Ya’ Head Up II) which features female group H.E.A.T. was the only single from the album.
Anna Gordy was another collaborator, co-writing the R&B song Never Let You Go (Sha-Lu-Bop) for her boyfriend. The album was recorded over two weeks and was released on June 8, 1961. Before the release of his first single, the Berry Gordy-composed ballad Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide, Gaye added an extra ‘e’ to his last name, to look more professional.
The album’s lyrics deal mostly with birth and especially death. The opening track, Darkness, is a song about overcoming fears. Growing Up is a summation of life put to a pulsating beat. Sky Blue is a track Gabriel claimed to have been working on for 10 years before finishing it.
Although Lennon admired the composition initially, author Simon Leng considers that, with its barbs about the Beatles, the song was just a little too candid in airing the band’s dirty laundry. The final take, numbered 102 (a reduction mix of take 99), was edited and remixed by Geoff Emerick in 1984 for the aborted Sessions album.
The Garden (Guns N’ Roses song) The Garden is a song by the hard rock band Guns N’ Roses released in 1991. It appears on the album Use Your Illusion I and features alternating lead vocals between Axl Rose and Alice Cooper.
In Kaffa, Maria Theresa Thalers (MT) and salt blocks called amoleh were used as currency (as in the rest of Ethiopia) as late as 1905, which circulated at a rate of four or five amolehs to 1 MT. The economy was based on exports of gold, civet oil, and slaves.
