Album of the Day

Bring on the Night, by Sting (1986): This is the companion album to the documentary of the same name (that, criminally, is not available on DVD), although it is by no means a soundtrack. It's actually a fantastic live alubm recorded with Sting's band of jazz guys after the rehearsals chronicled in the film. In addition to getting the best of the tunes from Sting's debut solo album, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, the set is rounded out by reworked versions of old Police tunes. Particularly good are the smokin' "Low Life" and "I Burn For You."
