Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from the Pop/Rock vocalist and actress. Ellen Foley gained high public recognition singing the duet with Meat Loaf on the hit single "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" from the 1977 album Bat out of Hell. Her debut album Night Out was released in 1979. The album was produced by Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson. Foley recorded a memorable duet with Ian Hunter in 1980, "We Gotta Get Outta Here". All four members of the Clash appeared on her second album the Spirit of St. Louis in 1981, and Mick Jones and Joe Strummer co-wrote a number of songs for the album. Jones produced the album, which also featured members of the Blockheads, and peaked at #137 on the US charts. The Clash's hit song "Should I Stay or Should I Go", written and sung by Jones, was about the turbulent relationship he shared with Foley at the time. This timely release was done in conjunction with Ellen who has provided fascinating insights into the recording of both albums. Lemon.

I purchased both of these albums when they first came out years ago, and enjoyed them immensely. Through the years, and several moves, I have lost most of my vinyl albums but have often fondly remembered these two. I was pleased to be able to purchase them both at the same time as CD's. The style of each album is completely different. Nightout is definitely a rock based album, while Spirit of St Louis is more bluesy and almost gothic in its approach to the material. This was a definite score for me to be able to have these two albums back in my possession.

These are two great albums, but how stupid is this reissue?

First, these are just two albums on two separate CD's when they probably would have fit on one. But, as long as they're using two, they could have fit Ellen's third album (Another Breath) on here. Regardless, they also left off the bonus tracks from the previous CD editions of Night Out and Spirit of St Louis.

Compared to what, for instance, Edsel or BGO have been doing with similar reissues, this is a botched job.

Fantastic voice! Love the songs from the 80s. This is a very enjoyable walk down memory lane. Don't know who Ellen Foley is? She's the wonderful voice from Meatloaf's "Paradise by the dashboard light".
