Hits like “Sherry,” “Let’s Hang On,” “Walk Like a Man,” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry” match the Four Seasons’ glorious vocalizing with unstoppable drum-driven rhythm tracks.

From legendary mystery author and playwright Agatha Christie. Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a isolated mansion on Indian Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear.

And one by one, they die…

Get The Knack / The Knack

The Knack emerged from a late ’70s musical landscape that was morphing from rock and disco to rock, punk and new wave. Here is the digitally re-mastered edition of the LA rock quartet’s 1979 debut album, featuring their smash “My Sharona.”

Isaac's Storm

Torqued by drama and taut with suspense, this absorbing narrative of the 1900 hurricane that inundated Galveston, Texas, conveys the sudden, cruel power of the deadliest natural disaster in American history. Told largely from the perspective of Isaac Cline, the senior U.S. Weather Bureau official in Galveston at the time, the story considers an era when “the hubris of men led them to believe they could disregard even nature itself.”

Evel: The High-Flying Life of Evel Knievel
