Alabama 3 - Exile On Coldharbour Lane [1997/Flac/log]
Alabama 3 is a British band mixing rock, dance, blues, country and gospel styles. Founded in Brixton, London, in 1989.
In the United States, they are known as A3 to avoid a legal conflict with the well-established country music band Alabama.
They achieved international fame when the producers of hit TV series The Sopranos chose their track "Woke Up This Morning"
for the show's opening credits.
Exile on Coldharbour Lane is the debut album by Alabama 3. The name and cover are references to Exile on Main St. by The Rolling Stones and
Coldharbour Lane a major street in Brixton, South London best known for containing several after-hours clubs and not a few drug dealers.
