Title

Still remains a testimony to Cinderella’s ability to charm both the crowd at the Key Club and all the listeners further on.

Think of any 1980s band that should deal with some “unfinished business” and one of the first that probably comes to mind would be Cinderella, with their last studio album ‘Still Climbing’ released exactly twenty years ago and still no follow-up in the pipeline. ‘Unfinished Business’ was also the name of their 1998 tour – and yes, most of us are already familiar with the live recordings made over the course of that tour, aren’t we? This was first released over ten years ago as ‘Live At The Key Club’ and it’s re-appeared a few times since; the songs recorded live at the Key Club in Hollywood, CA back in October 1998 have now resurfaced yet again. Enhanced with the two bonus tracks from Cinderella’s heyday of 1991, the band’s new live compilation ‘Stripped’ is the same old song and dance nevertheless.

That said, there’s one certainty about classy live albums – not necessarily only these included in “50 Best Live Albums Ever” lists – and that is that you still enjoy the raw, authentic live cuts of the songs you know so well; even those you’ve been listening to for ages. There’s enough musical flavours here to satisfy a demanding ear – be it the Funky drum solo extended into an all-instrumental Bluesy jam in ‘Fallin’ Apart At The Seams’ or the Country-infused, melodic six string outro of ‘Coming Home’. There’s enough nostalgia-driven charming moments in the acoustic ‘Heartbreak Station’ or the soaring ‘Don’t Know What You Got (‘Til It’s Gone)’ to make you start to rummage through your pockets for the obligatory lighter (even though it’s just a late night home listening). Plus, each of the four band’s albums are represented here – even ‘Still Climbing’, with ‘Hot & Bothered’ appearing in the set. And alongside Cinderella’s classic such as ‘Shake Me’ or ‘Gypsy Road’, there are rare goodies here as well, just take a listen to the 1991 bonus tracks being ‘Sick For The Cure’ and ‘Make Your Own Way’.

Apart from it being more or less the same 1999 live album re-release, ‘Stripped’ still remains a testimony to Cinderella’s ability to charm both the crowd at the Key Club and all the listeners further on. It’s something we all may have heard before, but it’s always worth having our memory refreshed by a dose of guitar laden, Blues-infused Hard Rock. And with bands as classy and talented as Cinderella, whose abilities to steal the show and leave the audience enchanted have been known for decades, it’s also certain that you will enjoy their listening experience – and in this particular case, also the relapse of your seemingly overcome Cinderella addiction.
