Barbra Streisand’s status as one of the most successful singers of her generation was remarkable not only because her popularity was achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend — rock & roll — which she did not follow, but also because she used her vocal skills as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director.

Equal parts blue-eyed soul shouter and wild-eyed poet-sorcerer, Van Morrison is among popular music’s true innovators, a restless seeker whose incantatory vocals and alchemical fusion of R&B, jazz, blues, and Celtic folk produced perhaps the most spiritually transcendent body of work in the rock & roll canon. Subject only to the whims of his own muse Continue reading “Van Morrison – Discography (1967 – 2017)”

As a solo artist, Diana Ross is one of the most successful female singers of the rock era. If you factor in her work as the lead singer of the Supremes in the 1960s, she may be the most successful. With her friends Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Barbara Martin, Ross formed the Primettes vocal quartet in 1959. In 1960, they were signed to local Motown Records, changing their name to the Supremes in 1961. Continue reading “Diana Ross – Discography (1970-2012)”

There’s something about career milestones that make many artists look fondly to the past, and Yusuf — the artist who rose to international fame in the ’70s as Cat Stevens — is no different than anyone else in this respect. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of his first success on the U.K. charts with the single “I Love My Dog,” and on his album The Laughing Apple — the first for his own Cat-O-Log label — he explicitly looks back to his early days, albeit filtered through the eyes of experience.

Nyro peaked early, and Eli and the Thirteenth Confession, just her second album, remains her best. It’s not only because it contains the original versions of no less than three songs that were big hits for other artists: “Sweet Blindness” (covered by the 5th Dimension), “Stoned Soul Picnic” (also covered by the 5th Dimension), and “Eli’s Comin'” (done by Three Dog Night).

Wide Open is Michael McDonald’s first album in nearly a decade, following Soul Speak by nine years, but a better benchmark would be Blue Obsession, the last album of original material he released. That record arrived in 2000, long before McDonald’s reputation was revived by both yacht rocking satirists and R&B hipsters — elements that barely factor into the sound of Wide Open, although their existence may have convinced McDonald to leave behind his stroll through the ’60s soul songbook.

Cilla Black wasn’t a natural singer when the Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein, discovered her, and while she learned the ropes well enough and developed into a strong ballad singer, she was never a serious threat to Dusty Springfield in the talent department. But the pop world isn’t really about pure talent as much as it is a matter of timing, luck, having the right look, and maybe most of all, good material and good production Continue reading “Cilla Black – Completely Cilla: 1963-1973 (2012) [Box Set, 5CD + DVD]”
