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

Christmas albums are usually done to appease recording artists who have had some success; they rarely sell well because the holiday season is short, but some disprove the stereotype and sell seemingly forever — like this one. The Supremes put their warm harmonies on 12 classic Christmas songs, everything from “White Christmas” to a rousing “Joy to the World.” Diana Ross’ angelic, sweet, innocent voice is a perfect match for favorites like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.”Read More

Named the 6th best album in music history by Rolling Stone, Marvin Gaye’s staggeringly influential What’s Going On is pure soul genius and an ageless document about urban ills, employment issues, environmental concerns, and social responsibilities that’s as relevant today as it was upon release in 1971. At once, the singer both revolutionized Motown’s cache and upped the ante for his fellow artists.Read More

Much of the album was initially composed by the team of avant-garde bassist and record producer Bill Laswell, and keyboardist and producer Michael Beinhorn, and played on tour by their group Material in 1982, as a precursor to recording the follow-up album to Material’s One Down album (on which Whitney Houston was the lead singer on a cover of the Soft Machine song “Memories”).Read More

Head Hunters was a pivotal point in Herbie Hancock’s career, bringing him into the vanguard of jazz fusion. Hancock had pushed avant-garde boundaries on his own albums and with Miles Davis, but he had never devoted himself to the groove as he did on Head Hunters. Drawing heavily from Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, and James Brown, Hancock developed deeply funky, even gritty, rhythms over which he soloed on electric synthesizers, bringing the instrument to the forefront in jazz.Read More
