They Only Come Out at Night is the third studio album by Edgar Winter and the first by the Edgar Winter Group. A commercial hit, the album reached the #3 slot on the Billboard 200 chart and also features two of the band's biggest songs: "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride". Musically, besides the country track "Round & Round," the album features a mixture of mostly blues rock and boogie woogie induced rock in a generally carefree and upbeat sound. The album eventually sold two million copies. In 2006, the album was reissued on Super Audio CD by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab as well as the 2008 Quadraphonic rendition was reissued by SBME Sony BMG Music Entertainment. In the same year, it was featured in the video game Prey. Writer Stephen King mentioned the album in his 1975 novel 'Salem's Lot. The album is mentioned in the song "I Love My Dad" by Sun Kil Moon on their 2014 album Benji. The Australian cassette issue of the album in 1973 transposes "Undercover Man" and "Frankenstein" and has a wholly different cover: a photo of the band posing against a black background. The American cassette follows the same track order as the Australian issue, but retains the original cover.
