While this album will forever be remembered for spawning the huge hit singles "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride," there's plenty more to appreciate on this stellar release. From "the other single," "Hangin' Around," to the pretty melodies of "Round & Around" and "Autumn," the set collects ten outstanding cuts, played with fervor by Edgar Winter, Chuck Ruff, Dan Hartman, Randy Jo Hobbs, and Ronnie Montrose, along with guest artist/producer Rick Derringer. The "party" feel of "We All Had a Real Good Time" and the singalong "Alta Mira" only add to this already red-hot mix, making They Only Come Out at Night the album Winter will always be remembered for.

THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT is Edgar Winter's best album ever. Mixing Texas blues-R&B-rock with 70s hard rock and pop, Winter creates a musical blend that stays true to the roots while still holding lots of hit potential. There are so many great songs here that highlights are impossible to pick out. Overall, this CD is a must-own for any fan of rock & roll.
