Coincidentally, the 45rpm seven-inch single format was first introduced in 1949 by RCA Victor.Read More

Of all the original 50s rock ‘n’ roll stars, none was more flamboyant than Richard Wayne Penniman. Now a game octogenarian still intermittently performing (he headlined a Las Vegas weekender in March 2013), Richard has had a chequered career peppered with retirements and comebacks, fluctuations between God and Mammon and many a misjudged recording; his latter years dogged by a dodgy hip. At his peak he was the most dynamic rock ‘n’ roll extrovert on record and stage, which obscures the fact he was also the most mellifluous vocalist of the pack when he calmed down enough to sing a blues, gospel or soul balladRead More

It’s 1961 and the Twist is just the shot in the arm that the music business has been looking for in the wake of the payola scandal. Many key radio stations across the United States have panicked and changed their formats from rock & roll to “quality music”, causing both listeners and advertisers to drop away fastRead More

Somehow the same label issued two albums with the same name in the same year. This one, with 15 tracks, is vastly preferable to its 10-song counterpart. Both releases hit the high points with the irresistible “Gimme Some Lovin’,” “I’m a Man,” and others. With half as many tunes, though, this album includes the minor hit “Strong Love” and “Goodbye Stevie,” written by the group to commemorate the departure of sensational singer and multi-instrumentalist prodigy Steve Winwood. “Waltz for Lumumba” presages the jazzier turns he would take with Traffic.

Apart from his classic work with UFO, from a pure heavy metal and hard rock standpoint, most metalheads consider Michael Schenker’s 1980-1984 solo period to be his high-water mark. And after checking out the 2008 compilation Best of the Michael Schenker Group 1980-1984, you’ll understand why. After splitting from the aforementioned UFO, it appeared as though Schenker was on a mission to show the world that his exit from the bandRead More
