The Traveling Wilburys built upon George Harrison’s comeback with Cloud Nine and helped revitalize the other supergroup members’ careers, setting the stage for Bob Dylan’s 1989 comeback with Oh Mercy, Tom Petty’s first solo album, Full Moon Fever, produced by Jeff Lynne (sounding and feeling strikingly similar to this lark), and Roy Orbison’s Mystery Girl, which was released posthumously. Given the success Continue reading “Traveling Wilburys – Vol.3 (1990)”

There never was a supergroup more super than the Traveling Wilburys. They had Jeff Lynne, the leader of ELO; they had Roy Orbison, the best pop singer of the ’60s; they had Tom Petty, the best roots rocker this side of Bruce Springsteen; they had a Beatle and Bob Dylan, for crying out loud! It’s impossible to picture a supergroup with a stronger pedigree than that (all that’s missing is a Rolling Stone) Continue reading “Traveling Wilburys – Vol.1 (1988)”

When Smyth had her first hit with the band Scandal in 1982 with the peppy kiss-off “Goodbye to You,” MTV was still in its infancy and Alanis Morissette was not long out of diapers. Not exactly the stereotypical groundbreaker, the New York-born Smyth nonetheless helped make the pre-Madonna ’80s safe for women in rock, paving the way for such hit makers as Morissette, Sheryl Crow, and the whole Lilith Fair flock. While this career-spanning retrospective is a Continue reading “Patty Smyth – Greatest Hits – Featuring Scandal (1998)”

To most casual listeners, Del Shannon was a one-hit (or, at best, two-hit) wonder. This two-CD anthology goes a long way toward correcting that inaccurate perception, covering virtually every high point in a career that, admittedly with some ups and downs, yielded some great and popular music across nearly 30 years Continue reading “Del Shannon – A Complete Career Anthology 1961-1990 (1998)”

Scaled smaller than 2012’s double-album Privateering, Tracker also feels suitably subtle, easing its way into being instead of announcing itself with a thunder. Such understatement is typical of Mark Knopfler, particularly in the third act of his career. When he left Dire Straits behind, he also left behind any semblance of playing for the cheap seats Continue reading “Mark Knopfler – Tracker (2015) {Deluxe Edition}”

A deluxe version of one of the classic ‘concept’ Prog albums of all time and Rick Wakeman’s second. Re-mastered with bonus tracks and a Quad mix from the time. Long out of print, the A&M Rick Wakeman catalogue is highly sought after by fans, this is one of the first in a re-issue campaign to restore the Rick Wakeman catalogue back to its former glory.

An impressive and delightfully exhausting 50 tracks capture the spirit of the Beatles’ music on this double-CD compilation that imitates The White Album in look, just as the immaculate Boston Does the Beatles double LP from 1988 did. There are so many highlights in the over 150 minutes of music (almost an hour more than the approximately 97-minute aforementioned Boston Does the Beatles) that it is hard to be fair to all involved by leaving out names, when so much of this is so very good. Jeremy Morris submits an authentic “It’s All Too Much,” while Al Kooper dramatically revises “Eleanor Rigby” to wonderful effect Continue reading “VA – It Was 40 Years Ago Today: Tribute To The Beatles (2004)”

By all accounts, the somewhat unexpected 2014 King Crimson tour was a resounding success and Live at the Orpheum is the first offering for those who were unable to attend. The band had been reinvented with a combination of new and returning players and the set list consisted largely of tunes that hadn’t been performed live since the ’70s, if at all. The main wild card was the three-drummer front line, which easily could have turned into a mess Continue reading “King Crimson – Live at The Orpheum (2015) {CD + DVD-Audio}”

Irish guitarist Gary Moore has built an entire career on stubborn self-recycling. Just when listeners think they have him pegged within a particular musical style (heavy metal guitar slinger, soft-hearted acoustic player, jazz fusion experimentalist, electric blues purist), the enduring six-string legend throws a curve ball and changes artistic direction — seemingly just to spite his critics Continue reading “Gary Moore – Out In The Fields: The Very Best Of (1998) {Limited Edition}”
