CINDERELLA “Stripped” – Live Album Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!
5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!
CINDERELLA – Any 80’s headbanger and/or Classic Rock aficionado who has seen Cinderella live during any decade knows just how fantastic a live band they are! Collectors Dream Records has released Stripped, a collection of 16 live hits from Philadelphia’s treasured Heavy Rock ‘N Roll band. The songs were recorded over the course of two nights at the Key Club, in Hollywood, during Cinderella’s “Unfinished Business” tour.
The shows took place on October 2nd and 3rd, of 1998, featuring the original Cinderella line-up, with vocalist Tom Keifer out front, along with guitarist Jeff LaBar, drummer Fred Coury and bassist Eric Brittingham. Two bonus tracks (Sick For The Cure & Make Your Own Way) were recorded live in 1991.
Tom Keifer’s sandpapered vocals sound (per usual) fabulous and the band charges out their killer hard and heavy, bluesy Rock ‘N Roll; Cinderella Rock ‘N Roll that is now considered timeless, in my Metal opinion. Even though I’ve wished and waited for a new studio album to come from Cinderella, twenty years to be exact, their back catalog celebrated live on this Stripped album, still sounds more relevant than ever, to me.
This revisit to enjoying live Cinderella from 1998 and ’91 certainly takes me on a feel-good memory trip. Just listening to these guys jam on this album only solidifies my appreciation for the music they’ve created. Metal be thy name. – Stone
