What’s The Rockbrat Listening To Today ? Samson: Thankyou and Goodnight

Man I used to play this album to death back in the mid-80’s. The covert art tells you what you are gonna get – a great live rock record with the mighty Samson firing on all cylinders on a classic live offering. Vocalist Nicky Moore had a great range and filled the big shoes of former vocalist Bruce Dickinson (who had departed for Maiden some years beforehand) admirably. Y’know Leppard, Saxon and Maiden often share the spotlight when it comes to the whole NWOBHM scene, but bands like Samson (along with the Demon et al) deserve to be discovered as well. Samson trod the boards for years and cut some damn fine albums. Besides the Bruce and Thunderstick-era, hunt down Calm Before The Storm, and also this blazing live album called Thankyou and Goodnight. Paul Samson passed away in 2002 but his legacy of great rock music remains and is waiting for you to discover. You will not be disappointed. Check out the Paul Samson and Nicky Moore sites as well.
