Things We Do at Night (Live From Texas) is the new live album and concert film from Blue October. It is their fourth live album, and eleventh album overall. The album was recorded over Thanksgiving weekend, November 28-20, 2014 at the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas.

THE BEACH BOYS - Beach Boys' Party! Uncovered And Unplugged [2CD] - Capitol
Beach Boys' Party! was the tenth studio album by The Beach Boys and consisted of mostly cover songs. When originally recorded, the band invited friends and family into the studio for a party. Those sounds were then layered over the recorded music for a true party sound. Uncovered And Unplugged now strips away those party sounds so that the true sessions can be heard in their entirety. This special 2-disc set pairs the original album with the newly restored audio, outtakes and dialog.
