The Essential Collection: 1965–1997 is a box-set compilation album from The Carpenters that, with the exception of a few track changes, is essentially the same as the 1991 From the Top set. Coming in at four discs and 73 songs, this album is one of the biggest of all Carpenters compilation sets. The songs from this box set are everything from the Richard Carpenter Trio recordings from 1965 to their biggest hits in the early 1970s to the last song ever recorded by the Carpenters, “Now”.Read More

Label: DCC Compact Classics | USA | Cat#: GZS-1028 | Genre: Classic Rock

Bob Seger recorded the bulk of Night Moves before Live Bullet brought him his first genuine success, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it’s similar in spirit to the introspective Beautiful Loser, even if it rocks harder and longer. Throughout much of the album, he’s coming to grips with being on the other side of 30 and still rocking. Read More

On his debut album, Randy Newman sounded as if he was still getting used to the notion of performing his own songs in the studio (despite years of cutting songwriting demos), but apparently he was a pretty quick study, and his second long-player, 12 Songs, was a striking step forward for Newman as a recording artist.Read More

Label: DCC Compact Classics | USA | Cat#: GZS-1134 | Genre: Folk Rock, Pop Rock

This latest compilation of Jim’s music is both interesting and valid in that it combines songs that appeared on his three hit albums with earlier compositions that were works in progress of a singer/songwriter finding his voice and an artist searching for directon.Read More

Label: DCC Compact Classics | Japan | Cat#: GZS-1047 | Genre: Pop Rock

On The Pretender, Jackson Browne took a step back from the precipice so well defined on his first three albums, but doing so didn’t seem to make him feel any better. Employing a real producer, Jon Landau, for the first time, Browne made what sounded like a real contemporary rock record, but this made his songs less effective; the ersatz Mexican arrangement of “Linda Paloma” and the bouncy second half of “Daddy’s Tune,” with its horn charts and guitar solo, undercut the lyrics.Read More

Label: MFSL, UltraDisc II | USA | Cat#: UDCD 767 | Genre: Pop Rock

Marc Cohn is one of the finest debut albums of the 1990s, and it brought adult piano pop back to the radio. Every song is well-crafted, and Cohn’s singalong choruses, introspective lyrics, and vocal stylings reveal his ’60s soul and ’70s singer/songwriter influences. His voice is rich, but has a roughness that adds emotion when stretching to the upper end of his range while remaining subtle at the lower end. Read More

Over the course of three discs, The Collected Recordings: Sixties to Nineties runs through all of Tina Turner’s biggest hits, both in the 1960s and ’70s with Ike Turner and later without. Those needing a full introduction to Turner’s wonderful career will find this to provide a good, comprehensive overview of her best moments.Read More

30 Greatest Hits zeroes in on Aretha Franklin’s prime recording period for Atlantic, from her breakout in 1967 with “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” through the end of 1974, during which the Queen of Soul truly reigned over the charts — she averaged over one pop hit every two months.Read More

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
