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

Pete Haycock and Robin George had worked together on the charity album “LovePower and Peace” and the opportunity to make an album together to tour was not to be missed. The duo assembled in 2013 a cast of heritage musicians with all tracks mostly co-written by Haycock and George and they also coproduced the album. Pete had experienced worldwide fame as part of Climax Blues Band and Robin has enjoyed one the most varied and successful careers asRead More

Scaled smaller than 2012’s double-album Privateering, Tracker also feels suitably subtle, easing its way into being instead of announcing itself with a thunder. Such understatement is typical of Mark Knopfler, particularly in the third act of his career. When he left Dire Straits behind, he also left behind any semblance of playing for the cheap seatsRead More

Founded in London in 1963 by singer Phil May and an original Rolling Stone, guitarist Dick Taylor, the Pretty Things took their name from a 1955 Bo Diddley single and covered four of his tunes on their debut LP. The Pretties also supercharged Diddley’s iconic shuffle and tremolo strum into an avenging-R&B mayhem — caught right away on the 1964 45s “Rosalyn” and “Don’t Bring Me Down” — that was the delinquent model for garage rock, punk and glamRead More

German heavy metal icons the Scorpions hit the 50-year mark in 2015, being initially conceived all the way back in 1965 by a 16-year-old Rudolf Schenker as a beat band very much in line with the trends of the time, and slowly evolving into a hard rock force to contend with by the end of the ’70s. Multi-platinum-selling singles and omnipresent commercial success peaked out for the Scorpions sometime in the early ’80s, but they kept the flame alive for a dedicated army of followers for decades to come. Return to Forever is the band’s 18th album of new studio material, following 2010’sRead More
