Recent Additions to the Library's NEO Music Collection

Recent Additions to the Hiram College Library’s NEO Music Collection.

We’ve been very busy the past three months, and so haven’t been able to make a list of the older stuff we’ve added to the collection.  But here it finally is, and it’s wonderful!  The variety of Northeast Ohio music is amazing, and it’s truly surprising to discover who has roots here.  Take a look---

Joseph Arthur & the Lonely Astronauts.  Temporary People.  (2008 release by this Akronite)
Cletus Black.  Shades of Black.  (The country rocker brought this out in 1996)
The Dreadful Yawns.  Early.  (Cleveland band’s debut album, from 2003)
Steve Hauschildt.  Tragedy & Geometry.  (Electronica from Bay Village)
Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.  A Portrait of a Man and His Woman.  (1972 album from this Clevelander--how many of you knew that?)
Howard Hewett.  The Very Best of Howard Hewett.  (2001 hits collection from this R&B/Gospel Akron native)
Marti Jones.  Match Game.  (Not too many singer-songwriters come out of Uniontown.  From 1986)
Mary Martin & the Tuna Band.  Mary Martin & the Tuna Band.  (Re-release of one of their 80s albums)
Maureen McGovern.  Greatest Hits.  (Best-of set from this songstress from Youngstown)
Midnight Syndicate.  Vampyre: Symphonies from the Crypt.  (Gothic mood music based out of Chardon)
Pretenders.  Last of the Independents.  (Chrissie Hynde & Co. in a 1994 release)
Suede Brothers.  I’ll New You.  (Maybe that’s the name of their second album, and maybe it isn’t.  All of their albums seem to be called Suede Brothers)

The Boondockmen.  Swing Batter Swing: Tribe Fan Anthem 97.  (All the rage when the Indians went to the series.  We picked it up for a buck.)
Travis Haddix.  What I Know Right Now.  (1992 release by this blues guitarist & singer)

Joe McBride.  Lookin’ for a Change.  (2009 date by the pianist and singer, with Hiram’s own Dan Wilson on guitar!)
Mike Petrone Trio.  Live at Turner’s Mill.  (Mid-90s concert at the former swanky restaurant in Hudson.  Not that it’s no longer swanky, just that it’s no longer.)
Jimmy Scott.  Moon Glow.  (2003 release by the recently deceased jazz singer)

Robert Schumann.  Piano Music.  (Pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi currently teaches at the Cleveland Institute of Music)
