There is not a single bad track in the bunch, but standouts for me include the title track, "Fade To Black," the hilarious "One of them Days," and peppy "Lost Without You." I also like the closing track "Stranded," which features Phil Colin from Def Leppard on backing vocals.
I can't recommend this one enough...cast your prejudice aside and enjoy the ride. Congrats to Mike Reno and the boys.

I've read that a founding guitarist left the band, but they were working on a new record. I hope his departure does not manifest itself as a sophomore jinx. Time will tell, but I will certainly check out their next effort.
The Summer Obsession on MySpace. Official site.
Check out video for "Death Said" (which got to 96 on the Billboard chart):

Yes, that is Data! He is functioning within normal parameters, moonlighting as a lounge singer. Brent Spiner actually has a very pleasant singing voice, which was showcased in various episodes of Star Trek - The Next Generation (so I'm told!). Brent does his best Sinatra on this CD, which was released in 1991 by Bay Cities. The CD is rare and out of print, and is probably craved by Trekkers and others who like this genre. A bonus for the Trekkers: some tracks include other cast members from TNG.

UPDATE (12-10-07): something fishy here...another one sells for only $36.77 on ebay (3 bids). What's up with that?
UPDATE (12-14-07): One sells for $42.99 on ebay (1 bid).
Note both of the above are from the same seller.
UPDATE (2-1-08): One sells for $153.00 on ebay (12 bids).
This is quite possibly one of the the most insane rare CD purchases I've seen in my history of following this stuff. "This CD was released locally (2003) in the Seattle area only, about a year before her major label debut was released." [Columbia Records signed Carlile in late 2004].
For those who don't know, ask a girl about Brandi...her songs have been frequently played on Grey's Anatomy.
Brandi Carlile Band CD goes for $710 on ebay (49 bids).
UPDATE: (1-3-08) One sells for $365.90 on ebay (32 bids).
The same CD also is available with an alternative cover:
The alternate cover version recently sold for $51.05 on ebay (15 bids) (12-21-07)

I am not sure what the deal is on this one. Evidently an unreleased CD that is released!
According to the ebay listing: "Super rare unreleased album from 1977. Released in the 90's on the Remasters label" OK.
Whatever the story behind this is, it had 16 bids and went for $137.50 on ebay.
1 - Past The Mission
2 - Winter [Live at Manchester Free Trade Hall 3.1.94]
3 - The Waitress [Live in Boston, The Sanders Theatre 3.31.94]
4 - Icicle [Live in LA, Wadsworth Theatre 3.22.94]
5 - Past The Mission [Live in Chicago, Vic Theatre 3.24.94]
6 - PSA
7 - PSA
One of these recently went for $122.50 on ebay. That comes to about $17 a track.
This EP CD released in 1994 (Dark Realm Records) will fetch a healthy price on ebay. A recent auction sold this Sadistic Intent CD for $102.50. According to one Amazon.com review, the release is one of the "darkest releases in death metal."
UPDATE (12/16/07): Another sells for only $22.59 on ebay (8 bids) by the same seller.
UPDATE (1/20/08): Another sells for $81.00 on ebay (15 bids).
UPDATE (1/28/08): Another sells for $61.00 on ebay (12 bids).
