We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

Y&T (ABO #258)


Y&T (originally known as Yesterday & Today) is an American hard rock/heavy metal band formed in 1974. They hail from the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. The band released two studio albums on London Records as Yesterday & Today in the 1970s, before shortening their name to Y&T and releasing several albums on A&M Records beginning in 1981, as well as albums on Geffen Records, Avex Records, and others. The band was originally co-managed by Herbie Herbert (who also managed Journey) and Louis "Lou" Bramy. The band has sold over 4 million albums worldwide to date.
With career accolades that include performing on American Bandstand, two Bammie Awards, five top 100 albums, songs that tipped into the top 40 charts, multiple national and international television appearances, and a worldwide fan base, Y&T has sold over four million albums and released eleven studio albums since their 1974 inception. The band has survived the disco fever, survived New Wave's peak in popularity, rode the crest of the 1980s hard rock and glam metal insurgence, outlasted the age of grunge, and continue to perform today, remaining faithful to melodic power ballads. At any of their concerts, fans can be heard calling out their requests including "Rescue Me" from Earthshaker, "Forever" from Black Tiger, and the title track from Mean Streak. Several songs by the band are also included in the soundtracks of numerous movies and television shows.
"Summertime Girls" remains as the band's signature song, with lesser songs such as "Mean Streak" also being well-known. Music videos for songs such as the aformentioned two, "Lipstick & Leather", "Don’t Stop Runnin'", "Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark", and "Contagious" are still featured videos on VH1 today.
