All of the songs are great, which is something that can't always be said about an album.

Like John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, The Hooters made the type of music that was the heart of the nation. Nervous Night was an excellent beginning to a career that should have gone much farther. All ten tracks are very well produced. The music is still fresh 15 years later. It contains the hits "All You Zombies", "Day By Day", "And We Danced" and "Where Do The Children Go" as well as great album tracks like "Don't Take My Car Out Tonight", "Nervous Night", "Hanging On A Heartbeat", "South Ferry Road" and "Blood From A Stone." I think their 1987 cd, One Way Home, is a more mature effort but it lacked the solidity of Nervous Night. However, their 1989 cd, Zig Zag, was just as exceptional as Nervous Night, and if you can find it, it's worth owning. Their 1993 cd, Out of Body, lacked the originality of their first three cds, but is good just the same. What came next surprised me. They changed their name and reformed the band and called themselves Largo. In 1998 they released their self-titled debut. Excellent. See my review on it. Definitely worth having. In fact, all four Hooters cds and the one Largo cd are worth owning. But, if you've only got time and money for one, then Nervous Night is a must have.

Back in 1985 and 1986, a band called "The Hooters" appeared on the music scene that seemed to have the promise of a great future. They had a debut album, "Nervous Night" that was garnering a lot of attention in the music industry. Although it wasn't a Top 10 album and didn't produce a #1 single, most were in agreement that The Hooters were destined for Superstardom. In fact, many people believed that 20 years later - the name Hooters could be associated as one of the legendary bands in music history. It's sad to say that Hooters is more known for being a restaurant and bar chain as opposed to a music band. Many things would go wrong for the band following "Nervous Night" - they were never able to capture the commercial success or critical acclaim they had back in 85 and 86. Yes the band is beginning to have a bit of a renaissance in Europe, but nothing that would approach what they saw when "Nervous Night" was released.

The Hooters seemed to have arrived at the perfect time. At the time "Nervous Night" had been released, the 80s music landscape was beginning to change. It was during the time of 1985 when the 80s music landscape began to move away from Synth-Pop toward a more guitar laden sound. Artists such as Bruce Springsteen and John Cougar Mellencamp were leading this charge. "Nervous Night" - while it did have its share of strong keyboard work by co-founder Rob Hyman was still an album that captured this guitar laden sound. It is kind of ironic that The Hooters were in the middle of this transformation. Co-founders Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian were involved in one of the most celebrated albums that is seems to be associated with the Synth-Pop sound - Cyndi Lauper's "She's So Unusual" album.

Format: Audio CD
This one should be on anyone's list. Unique sound, and a rare album that has not a single throw-away song in the bunch! Best songs: And We Danced (kicks the CD off right), South Ferry Road (from the opening yell to the closing wistfulness, has more meaning than entire books I've read), Where Do the Children Go? (pensive and deep, but fun and a great sound too), Blood From a Stone (this one rocks, what else can I say). Wow, that was a painful experience, picking a best song on this one! Every song is flawless! Buy this CD immediately, and you won't be disappointed. You may also want to pick up One Way Home, if only for the superb Karla With a K. Rob

To quote a line from an old movie,"They could've been a Contender." This recording is just screaming with potential as the special effects combined with the high energy just works for me. Where Do The Children Go is a special tune as it makes one reflect on how things change from one's growing up years. Patti Smyth contributes a nice vocal on the aforementioned track. And We Danced, Day By Day, South Ferry Road, and Blood From A Stone are excellent rockers while All You Zombies and Hanging On A Heartbeat each offer a creative side to this band. Other than Eric Bazillian's and Rob Hyman's contributions to the Joan Osbourne's smash Relish CD, these guys never reached this high again.

As 80s music goes, these guys were probably ahead of their time. I remember buying this on vinyl for "All You Zombies", and getting hooked on the other tracks (And We Danced / My Love (She Comes in Colors).
Best non-popular group of the decade to come along and disappear behind the new wave/electronic bands that epitomized the 80s. Alas, I wish they had been on the charts more often - but what reviewer and critic in their right mind would consistently rave about a band that employed a Melodica as one of their lead instruments?
Wish they were still putting out gems like this.
Peace Out.

The vocal tag team of Rob Hyman & Eric Bazillion lead the way for this unique rock sound sprinkled with folk. The band had the common instruments but also incorporated the likes of mandolin riffs and of course, the hooter (the keyboard-harmonica hybrid instrument that gave them a sound unlike any other group.

This debut CD includes such rock hits as "And We Danced" & "Day By Day" along with the softer "All You Zombies" as well as the ballad "Where Do The Children Go." None of them made it to #1, but they were hits for this group (but this may be best known to those who live in the Philladelphia area).

Other noteworthy songs on this CD include the groovin' "Hanging On A Heartbeat." You may also note how this song seems to be a pre-cursor to "Living in the Shadow of Jesus" from the Out of Body CD.

They show some angst toward our leaders (as we all have probably done at some point) with "Blood From a Stone." Although we are also reminded of how the 80' were a simpler time. The band curses once, but decided not to print the lyrics for most of that verse. HA!

All of the songs are enjoyable. This is a CD that one could play in the background for a party. Almost any song could be danced to on here.

Expectations for this band were high, but they never seemed to draw the critical acclaim they deserve. But if you like rock, but would like something a little different, pick up this CD. It's probably their best and best known one.
