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 Geraldo Continue reading “Pat Benatar – The Very Best Album Ever (2002)”

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 ballad Continue reading “Little Richard – Just About As Good As It Gets!

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 fast Continue reading “Various Artists – Twistin’ USA (2013)”
