Night was a rock band formed in 1978 in Los Angeles, California, United States, whose personnel were veteran British-based session musicians.Night's vocalists Stevie Vann (aka Stevie Lange) and Chris Thompson had met when Vann had provided backing vocals for the 1978 album Watch by Manfred Mann's Earth Band then fronted by Thompson. Soon afterwards Thompson invited Vann to join him in a new outfit, Vann's session group known as Bones having recently disbanded and Thompson having reduced his involvement with Manfred Mann's Earth Band.Richard Perry produced two albums by Night for his Planet label; the group's eponymous 1979 debut album yielded two US Top 40 hits: "Hot Summer Nights" (No. 18) and "If You Remember Me" (No. 17)."Hot Summer Nights", a cover of a minor Walter Egan hit, featured Lange on lead vocals and gave Night their one international hit most significantly in Australia at No. 3 with more moderate success in Canada (No. 23), the Netherlands (No. 21), New Zealand (No. 28) and South Africa (No. 13)."If You Remember Me", recorded as the theme song for the film The Champ, was introduced on the Night album but in its single release credited solely to Chris Thompson with another album track "Cold Wind Across My Heart" - featuring both Thompson and Vann - being marketed as the second Night single; the latter track failed to chart and the Night album peaked at a moderate No. 113, the group's gig opening for the Doobie Brothers failing to significantly boost their popularity.A second album release by Night in 1980 entitled Long Distance produced a minor hit in its single release: "Love on the Airwaves", and was otherwise overlooked. Night had no further recordings released but did not officially disband until 1982.Night can be seen in the 1980 film The Monster Club performing "The Stripper".
NIGHT came together in 1978, combining the talents of several already well established musicians and session pros of impeccable pedigree.Female vocalist Stevie Lange (AKA Stevie Vann) had worked with the likes of Graham Bonnet, Elton John and Manfred Mann's Earth Band. It was through her association with M.M.E.B. that Lange met vocalist/guitarist Chris Thompson who had sung vocals on the Earth Band’s biggest hit ‘Blinded By The Light’ (1976).Night released two albums on the US label Planet. The group's eponymous 1979 debut album yielded two US Top 40 hits: 'Hot Summer Nights' and 'If You Remember Me'.Originally released in 1980, "Long Distance" is the second album from Night, and with some line-up changes, the band hardened their sound.The disc produced a minor hit with "Love on the Airwaves", but otherwise was criminally overlooked. Soon after, Night officially disbanded in 1982.Often compared with Heart, actually Night was a more rocking band at that time.Although both albums were recorded in L.A. and intended for the American market, the essence of Night was basically British; it was founded in a London pub and the music composed & driven by Lange & Thompson (NZ born but educated in Australia and England)."Long Distance" remained unpressed on CD for a long time. This Japanese 24 Bit Digital Remaster sounds great as usual, rescuing from oblivion this very, very good album.Included as bonus we have one of Night's successful singles, "Hot Summer Nights" (a cover of a minor Walter Egan hit) that in the hands of the band got a harder edge and the powerful lead vocals of Stevie Lange.
