It’s a little problematic to put together a compilation of such an album-oriented artist. But unless you’re very deeply into the Leon Russell catalog, this two-CD, 40-track best-of will serve as a retrospective of all that you need, largely covering his work from the first half of the ’70s (a couple of songs from his 1992 Virgin album are also included) and featuring his best-known hits, big and small.Read More

Not the first posthumous compilation from David Bowie — that would be the lavish box Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976), which was planned prior to his January 10, 2016 death — Legacy is nevertheless the first designed with his, well, legacy in mind. That much can be gleaned from the title of the compilation, but that’s a bit of a feint since this set essentially repackages the simplest incarnation of a previous Bowie hits compilation, 2014’s Nothing Has Changed. Legacy is available as a single and a double-discRead More

In 1958, Cliff Richard became the first real-deal British rock star when his debut single “Move It” became a massive hit in the U.K. Compared to most of the first crop of English rock & rollers, Richard seemed at least a reasonable approximation of the genuine article imported from the United States. By the time the Beatles changed the game in the early ’60s, Richard had already begun easing into more polished and less threatening sounds, and through most of his career he’s been an all-purpose pop star, dividing his time between secular and Christian music when not busy with television appearances.
