Due to the title cut, this was a huge seller when it originally came out. Reissued on CD, this set from flügelhornist Chuck Mangione (which helped give guitarist Grant Geissman some fame) is actually stronger from the jazz standpoint than Mangione’s subsequent dates.Read More

Keith Richards is not a man you want to be cross with you. After two decades of occasionally uneasy give and take between Richards and Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones seemed on the verge of imploding when, after making himself scarce during the recording of 1986’s Dirty Work, Jagger made it clear he not only wasn’t going to tour with the bandRead More

UPDATE: Added CD-Layer

On How Will the Wolf Survive?, Los Lobos seemed to be feeling out the boundaries of how much they could say about the hard realities of life within the framework of good-time R&B-flavored rock & roll, and on their next album, 1987’s By the Light of the Moon, the group gently shifted their focus to favor their more contemplative side.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

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

Reissued by the audiophile label Mobile Fidelity on LP, this Red Nichols set is a bit unusual in that it is a live session. The cornetist and his Five Pennies (which includes the great bass saxophonist Joe Rushton, clarinetist Bill Wood and trombonist Pete Beilman) plays one of their typical sets of the period.Read More

After bouncing around Philips, Atlantic, and Capitol playing Brazilian jazz or searching for an ideal blend of Brazilian and American pop, Sergio Mendes struck gold on his first try at A&M (then not much more than the home of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass and the Baja Marimba Band).Read More
