Reading interviews with members of the late-’70s hard rock-meets-new wave group the Babys, one might think their short career was a failure. To a man, they feel like they didn’t get the breaks or the push that they needed to build a long and lucrative run at the top of the charts. No doubt that there is some truth to that, and it would have been nice for them on a personal level to have become as big as Journey or REO Speedwagon, but listening to HNE Recordings’ six-disc collection Silver Dreams: Complete Albums 1975-1980, it’s clear that on a musical level the band were quite successful Continue reading “The Babys – Silver Dreams: Complete Albums 1975-1980 (2019) [6CDs Box Set]”

Like her signature song “Ode to Billie Joe,” Bobbie Gentry is an enigma by choice. “Ode to Billie Joe” deliberately leaves out details that would spell out the story and Gentry removed herself from public view sometime in the late ’70s for reasons that have never been fully disclosed. Many have tried to track her down because her cult not only persisted into the 21st century, it even grew — so much so that an observer would be forgiven if they believed Gentry was something of an outsider artist instead of a mainstay on television who hosted a variety show of her own.
