I'm not sure if there was already a topic like this but I thought of starting this topic so as people can share any nice finds on the CD Baby website. As we know, the CD Baby catalogue is massive and there is a lot of shit to sift through in order to find anything worth buying. So if you come across something that sounds promising (any genre), any good deals, or maybe something you have purchased from them in the past that is still available, feel free to let us know about it here.

I'll kick things off with a few CD's that I've just ordered.

 

U-Turn - No Filler (2003) USA

 

uturn.jpg

 

This one is listed in the HH's database (first band under "U"). The samples sound really cool, reminding me of Bon Jovi. Check out the samples for 'You Say', 'I Need You', 'I'll Come After You', 'One More Night' and 'Drift Away'. Very highly recommended.

U-Turn - In Your Face (2007) USA

This is the 2nd (?and final) album for U-Turn. It's noticeably heavier and more perhaps more modern sounding than the first, though it still has plenty of appeal. Judging by the samples, it is probably stronger in the middle of the album with songs like 'Tender Eyes', 'The Change' and 'December Nights'. The album finishes off with some bonus tracks/demos of which 'Get Up' and 'United We Stand' sound really cool and could possibly be demos from the first album.

Both albums are available on CD for $12.97

Wow mate, thanks for the post. I had no idea these guys had a 2nd disc... it's on my want list for sure. That debut is excellent. Lacking in the production / backing vocals and overall vibe department, but at it's core the songs on it are simply excellent. Great hooks.

 

Definitely need to hear the 2nd one...

Yeah as far as I can tell from the samples, the 2nd album is the weaker of the two, but as I say has some cool songs in the middle and those demos at the end aren't bad either. I'm not really sold by their heavier and more modern songs. Though I'll wait until I actually get the CD before forming too much of an opinion.

Check out Malicious. Kind of a mix of Dokken and Dangerous Toys.

Nice one, I think I'll pick this up as well. That song 'Live Fast ('N Die Young)' sounds cool.

 

Yeah that Malicious CD sonds awesome. I used to buy at CDBaby back in 2005/2006 eg. the Big Cock CDs but shipping worldwide was free then. What is it these days?

Growing up in the Baltimore area I was really lucky to have so many great local bands to go see. Bands such as KIX, Child's Play, DC Star... and the much underrated band... The RAVYNS.

To this day one of my top 10 favorite releases of all time.

their search function is shit!

 

i see the Malicious listing above has Crashdiet as a band 'recommended if you like', but then you go to the advanced searh function and put in crashdiet in the 'sounds like' category... and it comes up 0 results.

Yup it is absolutely horrible. Same goes for Hastings search feature. Like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Too bad for some of those bands that would appeal to certain buyers but the buyers can't find them.

To Australia, postage without cases gets cheaper the more you buy. If you buy just one CD it's $5.57, if you buy 10 CD's it's $22.74 ($2.27/CD)

So probably a bit more than I would like to pay but if you can find 10 CD's to order it's not too bad.

This is one for the AOR fans. This band is on the HH databse too. They are compared to stuff like Journey, Styx, Loverboy etc.

Another band from Baltimore back in the day. Not as good as The Ravyns.. but good none the less.

Here's one of my favorites from CD Baby - a great AOR gem from 1987. Singer sounds like Mike Reno. Totally essential IMO.

Ahh, the old "they look hair metal so maybe they are" LOL...that's how I use to by cd's growing up. Didn't hear a note of Cold Sweat, Valentine, and countless others but I saw the picture :)

 

Funny enough, I almost never struck out :) Well, these guys have the look but I can't get the preview button to work :(

Sounds GREAT to my ears!

 

 

The description on CD Baby about them sounding like Led Zeppelin is accurate, but in a more Cinderella, Britny Fox, Salty Dog, Great White way. I guess a little more amped up and not so "vintage" sounding.

    • Anyone check out their album released earlier this year? Simple Plan     -    Harder Than It Looks 1    .    Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over) 2    .    Ruin My Life (feat. Deryck Whibley) 3    .    The Antidote 4    .    Million Pictures of You 5    .    Anxiety 6    .    Congratulations 7    .    Iconic 8    .    Best Day of My Life 9    .    Slow Motion 10    .    Two If you liked them before you'll undoubtedly like this one as it's very much Simple Plan. I enjoy.  The clear stand-out for me is this teen anthem that 13 year old Georgia would crank in (one of) her bedroom(s) with tears in her eyes, but it also hits a spot on the other side of the equation. Pretty silly when it's such a teeny written anthem, but not every song that hits a spot needs to be orchestrated by Picasso, I guess. lol.   
    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this.
