Reading interviews with members of the late-’70s hard rock-meets-new wave group the Babys, one might think their short career was a failure. To a man, they feel like they didn’t get the breaks or the push that they needed to build a long and lucrative run at the top of the charts. No doubt that there is some truth to that, and it would have been nice for them on a personal level to have become as big as Journey or REO Speedwagon, but listening to HNE Recordings’ six-disc collection Silver Dreams: Complete Albums 1975-1980, it’s clear that on a musical level the band were quite successfulRead More

Although it probably wasn’t meant as such, this self-titled album is Emitt Rhodes’ definitive statement. Soon after disbanding the Merry-Go-Round (of “Live” fame), Rhodes scored a solo deal with Dunhill. Rather than recording with a band or using studio musicians (which he did with his first “solo” album American Dream), the multi-instrumentalist decided to build a small, primitive home studio and record the entire affair there, “At Home.”Read More

It was Joe Strummer’s good fortune that he was the frontman of one of the greatest rock bands of all time, the Clash. It was his burden that after the group broke up, he had to spend the rest of his career being judged by a standard that meant only so much to him. Very little of what Strummer did as solo artist followed the musical template of the Clash, and that was just the way he wanted it.Read More

Three CDs. Looking Through A Glass Onion assembles these disparate strands into one cohesive package, with the studio day trippers, the cultural pranksters, the genre-benders, the folk club stalwarts and the hair-down-to-his-knees prog-rock brigade all grooving up slowly to the starting line. Though largely forgotten now, Liverpool quartet The Beatles were the toppermost of the poppermost in the Sixties, responsible for some of the biggest-selling singles of all time and a series of ground-breaking albums that dictated musical trends until their next LP emerged.Read More
