Harry Nilsson spent almost all of his rich, idiosyncratic, sometimes maddening career at RCA Records, releasing his bravura debut, Pandemonium Shadow Show, in 1967 and fading into the sunset with 1977’s Knnillssonn. During those ten years, he released 14 albums and left behind a bunch of stray tracks, almost all of which are gathered on Legacy’s massive and wonderful 2013 box The RCA Albums CollectionRead More

Cyndi Lauper was one of the biggest stars of the early MTV era, selling five million copies of her debut album, She’s So Unusual, as well as scoring a string of four Top Ten hits from the record, including the major hits “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “Time After Time.” Lauper’s thin, girlish voice and gleefully ragtag appearance became one of the most distinctive images of the early ’80sRead More

Pat Benatar’s polished mainstream pop/rock made her one of the more popular female vocalists of the early ’80s. Although she came on like an arena rocker with her power chords, tough sexuality, and powerful vocals, her music was straight pop/rock underneath all the bluster. Born Patricia Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the singer was raised in the nearby town of Lindenhurst on Long Island, NY. Benatar began singing regularly in the New York City area by the ’70s, where she was discovered at the Catch a Rising Star club and signed by Chrysalis Records. Backed by a stellar band led by guitarist Neil GeraldoRead More

The English glam rock band was fronted by Chris Norman, who became known to American audiences for his duet with Suzi Quatro, “Stumblin’ In”, which became a top chart hit around the world. But Smokie was most popular in Europe in the late 1970’s with hits like “Laying Back in the Arms of Someone”, “Don’t Play Your Rock N Roll to Me”, their cover of “Needles And Pins” and “Living Next Door to Alice” (which features the “F” word uncensored and stayed that way even when performed on television)Read More

Sheryl Crow was one of the key artists of the ’90s, if the yardstick is capturing the sound and spirit of the time. A former backing vocalist for Michael Jackson — an association that led to dubious tabloid headlines romantically linking her with the singer long before she was a star in her own right — she rode the first great wave of Women in Rock hysteria of the alt-rock explosion to fame with her first album, Tuesday Night Music Club, in 1994, settling into the weary aftermath of the post-grunge years with her brilliant eponymous second albumRead More

Although it’s missing a few important (not to mention big) hits, Greatest Hits, Vols. 1 & 2 is an excellent retrospective of the first half of Billy Joel’s career. Beginning with “Piano Man,” the first disc runs through a number of early songs before arriving at the hit-making days of the late ’70s; some of these songs, including “Captain Jack” and “New York State of Mind,” weren’t strictly hits, but were popular numbers within his stage show and became radio hitsRead More

A great overview of the music from this group, one of the founders of the California sound in the late ’60s. This is a good collection of their unforgettable electric folk-pop songs, including “Monday, Monday” and “California Dreamin’.” (Originally released in August 1969 by Dunhill Records, 16 of Their Greatest Hits, it was reissued on CD by MCA Records in 1986.)Read More

When Smyth had her first hit with the band Scandal in 1982 with the peppy kiss-off “Goodbye to You,” MTV was still in its infancy and Alanis Morissette was not long out of diapers. Not exactly the stereotypical groundbreaker, the New York-born Smyth nonetheless helped make the pre-Madonna ’80s safe for women in rock, paving the way for such hit makers as Morissette, Sheryl Crow, and the whole Lilith Fair flock. While this career-spanning retrospective is aRead 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

Recording The Nylon Curtain exhausted Billy Joel, and even though it had a pair of major hits, it didn’t rival its predecessors in terms of sales. Since he labored so hard at the record, he decided it was time for a break — it was time to record an album just for fun. And that’s how his homage to pre-Beatles pop, An Innocent Man, was conceived: it wasRead More
