Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook, Vol. 1 may be a bit of a departure for Barry Gibb, who spent his career exploring the byways of pop music as a member of the Bee Gees, but it fits into a long line of albums where a pop star revisits his catalog through the prism of country music.Read More

Thankful could be subtitled the finest hour for Natalie Cole and the songwriting/production duo of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy. The album flows from track to track. It boasts the beautiful number one R&B/Top Ten pop million-selling ballad “Our Love,” as well as radio-aired tracks: the rousing, gospel-ish “Be Thankful,” ” Just Can’t Stay Away,” the lushly orchestrated torch number “Aint Nothing Stronger Than Love,” and the smooth tropical-flavored “La Costa.”Read More

A Place in the Sun is the third album by the California soft rock group Pablo Cruise. The album marked an entrance into the mainstream for the band, and the first single from the album, “Whatcha Gonna Do?” reached number 6 on the Pop Singles charts. The title track, “A Place in the Sun” was the second and less successful single on the album, reaching number 42, but remains the favorite among many fans of the band today.[3] The track “Raging Fire” was released as the B-side of “I Go to Rio” in 1978. This was the group’s last album with original bassist Bud Cockrell, who left the band after its release.Read More

It’s unfair to say that Fleetwood Mac had no pop pretensions prior to the addition of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to the lineup in 1975. When they were led by Bob Welch they often flirted with pop, even recording the first version of the unabashedly smooth and sappy “Sentimental Lady,” which would later be one of the defining soft rock hits of the late ’70s.Read More

With a restrained yet potent funk band and a few cameos from luminaries in the jazz world, Al Jarreau gets plenty of opportunities to wrap his rubbery, ever-changing timbre around an agreeable collection of tunes, the majority of which he wrote or co-wrote.Read More

Year of the Cat brought Al Stewart a genuine worldwide smash with its title track, and for its successor, he did make a few concessions. These, however, were slight — just a slight increase of soft rock productions, an enhancement of the lushness that marked not only Year of the Cat but also Modern Times.Read More

Herb Alpert turned to jazz’s Shorty Rogers — then toiling in the L.A. film and TV studios — for voice and string arrangements on his Christmas album, and Rogers in turn went all out for schmaltz. Rogers’ cooing voices introduce several of the tunes, whereupon the Tijuana Brass do their mostly unrelated Ameriachi thing familiar from past albums. Indeed, “Las Mananitas” seems to have been lifted from an obscure B-side of a 45 and overdubbed with the Rogers treatment. Jingling bells is a recurring song theme — first with “Jingle Bells,” then the cloying “The Bell That Couldn’t Jingle,” and ultimately “Jingle Bell Rock.”Read More

Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas is a charming, warmly humorous — and yes, swinging — set of classic Christmas tunes. The program is familiar, from bouncy singalongs like “Jingle Bells” to slinky ballads like a downright sexy “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” but Fitzgerald treats each song with exactly as much respect as it deserves.
