Gold isn’t the first Donna Summer compilation (it isn’t even the 24th), and you can bet it won’t be the last. Released by the reputable Hip-O, it’s a two-disc set containing an overly generous list of 34 songs, roughly half of which will be of no consequence to those only wanting the big dancefloor hits from the ’70s and ’80s — “I Feel Love,” “Love to Love You Baby,” “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff,” “On the Radio,” “She Works Hard for the Money,” and the like.

It’s often unfair to compare the Rolling Stones to the Beatles but in the case of the group’s mono mixes, it’s instructive. Until the 2009 release of the box set The Beatles in Mono, all of the Fab Four’s mono mixes were out of print. That’s not the case with the Rolling Stones. Most of their ’60s albums — released on Decca in the U.K., London in the U.S. — found mono mixes sneaking onto either the finished sequencing or various singles compilations, so the 2016 box The Rolling Stones in Mono only contains 56 heretofore unavailable mono mixes among its 186 tracks.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

Most rock & roll bands are a tightly wound unit that developed their music through years of playing in garages and clubs around their hometown. Steely Dan never subscribed to that aesthetic. As the vehicle for the songwriting of Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, Steely Dan defied all rock & roll conventions. Becker and Fagen never truly enjoyed rock — with their ironic humor and cryptic lyrics, their eclectic body of work shows some debt to Bob Dylan — preferring jazz, traditional pop, blues, and R&B.Read More

Scottish singer/songwriter Al Stewart has been an amazingly prolific and successful musician across 50 years, working in a dizzying array of stylistic modes and musical genres — in other words, he’s had a real career, and has done it without concerning himself too much about trends and the public taste.

After goth pioneers the Birthday Party called it quits in 1983, singer/songwriter Nick Cave assembled the Bad Seeds, a post-punk supergroup featuring former Birthday Party guitarist Mick Harvey on drums, ex-Magazine bassist Barry Adamson, and Einstürzende Neubauten guitarist Blixa Bargeld. With the Bad Seeds, Cave continued to explore his obsessions with religion, death, love, America, and violence with a bizarre, sometimes self-consciously eclectic hybrid of blues, gospel, rock, and arty post-punk, although in a more subdued fashion than his work with the Birthday Party.Read More

While he was as innovative as Jimmy Page, as tasteful as Eric Clapton, and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck never achieved the same commercial success as any of those contemporaries, primarily because of the haphazard way he approached his career. After Rod Stewart left the Jeff Beck Group in 1971, Beck never worked with a charismatic lead singer who could have helped sell his music to a wide audience.Read More
