Be sure to get ahold of Heartbreak Station, an underrated/overlooked masterpiece for them.

At least you have Long Cold Winter so I don't need to begin to tell you about the classic "Bad Seamstress Blues/Fallin Apart At The Seams." They did that as the opening for that albums tour. The house lights went down and the stage lights flashed crazily as the sound system roared..and then there was silence and Tom Keifer stood by himself with a steel slide guitar on the raised stage-right platform and began playing Bad Seamstress Blues. There was just a sense of awe watching him standing up there by himself playing the blues and it was quite unexpected as an intro which usually starts with a "mow em down" song. Of course that came about a minute later when spot light went black on Tom and the bass drum began pounding and the lights back lit the kit where we could see Fred Coury getting Falling Apart At the Seams going and then the guitars came in with the stage exploding with lights.

Cinderella at a glance is often written off as just another glam hairband. But if you had the chance to see them live it put it into perspective. Basically you had a male version of Janis Joplin and a band that drew upon AC/DC and Aerosmith with a dose of classic blues. Bands like Poison which followed not long after in Cinderella's wake quickly warped and ruined things for them. Cinderella only used the make up on their debut album and tour. The deluge of so many bad imitations just buried Cinderella so they never were never quite realized for what they were in mass media. However, those who go see them live have all come out knowing the truth.

Very nice put.
The only thing I listened/seen by them is The Moscow 89 show but I must say that one kicked ass and you hear more blues in their rock than in any other 80s band...you are right!
I mean Cinderella...should check em out but they don't have any of their albums in my local store!

Ah yes, the Moscow performance. I loved that. Played the hell out of that tape. It does a good job of capturing the raw energy of the band.

I do highly suggest if they hit the road again that if you have the chance, go see them. They will dismiss any preconceived notions anyone may have about who/what they are.

One thing I forgot to add.....I first saw Cinderella on the Slippery When Wet tour when they opened for Bon Jovi. As an opening band I thought they were alright. It was my first concert and since they were the openers...my first "famous" band that I saw live. At the time I only knew 3 songs (Somebody Save Me, Nobodies Fool and Shake Me. I thought they were alright. I had bought Night Songs, the album, but didn't really care for the production/sound. When they came around again they were headlining on the Long Cold Winter tour and I wanted to support them so I went. I also knew much more than 3 songs by then. Anyway.....I was blown away at how much better they had become. Even if I didn't know the song..I liked it then. It was to the point of that I could no longer listen to the albums..I had to have the live performance.

The album "Live at the Key Club" is well worth picking up. It's relatively recent (1998 I believe) and it's raw. It does a great job of capturing that energy. The only complaints I have are Falling Apart At The Seams is done without Bad Seamstress Blues starting it off and that the songs overall are pretty straightforward without the added parts. For the most part they would add new parts to the songs..such as Gypsy Road having a different intro (which you can see/hear on the Moscow performance) and ditto for Nobody's Fool.

Thanks for the information !
I don't really think i'll ever see them live since they won't come to Romania soon and the only band i'd go outside the country for are:
Jovi,AC/DC,Guns N' Roses,Aerosmith and Alice Cooper.
But i'll try to get some bootlegs and the albums for sure
