    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    Especially for You is the first full-length album from New Jersey-based rock band The Smithereens.

    The album is notable for the hit “Blood and Roses”, which has been featured in multiple movie and TV productions. Producer Don Dixon’s co-production work on R.E.M.’s Murmur and Reckoning albums added attention to the record’s initial release. The album today is highly regarded by most critics, and was one of Kurt Cobain’s favorite albums, as noted in his journal.
