Review of Are You Satisfied - Slaves by dangaroo

Advantages: Fantastic lyrics and upbeat, energetic sound, originality
Disadvantages: None

Slaves Living outside of the UK, I have a slightly different exposure to up and coming British music. I don't get to see what's on the small club circuit and I'm less influenced by regular radio stations and charts and more influenced by Youtube. R ... Read review

Review of Brotherhood of Stars - Carlos Núñez by 2mennycds

Advantages: Relaxing, absorbing, varied genres
Disadvantages: Some tracks may not appeal, foreign vocals,

Full marks to my son for buying me this for a Christmas present a couple of years ago. His musical tastes are rather highbrow, but he managed to come up with this CD that he thought I would like even though it was by an artist that I’d never even heard o ... Read review

Marvin Gaye's 60s Classics Compilation
Review of 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection (The Best of Marvin Gaye, Vol. 1) - Marvin Gaye by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: All tracks are out-and-out classics!
Disadvantages: A little too short in running time.

Background This first volume of The Best of Marvin Gaye concentrates on his 1960s output. Though this was nowhere near as ground-breaking and relevant as much of his social-conscious work in the 70s, these are still among some of the best recordings ... Read review

Track No. 8, "Overture to the Sun" is composed by Terry Tucker
Review of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (Music from the Soundtrack) (Original Soundtrack) - Soundtrack by terrytucker

Advantages: Wendy/Walter Carlos' treatments of Purcell, Beethoven, and her own compositions are inspired
Disadvantages: Two tracks on the soundtrack CD are not Wendy Carlos; they need to be properly credited

The Potless review, "A Clockwork Orange - The Way Wendy Wanted It" is a good review and well written. However, there is one glaring mis-credit - track #8, is titled Orange Minuet and is attributed to Wendy Carlos. In fact, track #8 of the original film so ... Read review

Diana Ross Waves Goodbye To Motown

Advantages: A collection of some of Diana Ross' most timeless ballads.
Disadvantages: Those who hate love songs should avoid this at all costs.

Background US Release: 2/1981 UK Release: 3/1981 At one time, it seemed unthinkable Diana Ross would ever leave Motown. In early 1981, shockwaves were sent through the company when she announced she was leaving the label for a new deal with RCA Recor ... Read review

A Gold-Selling Album But Not Really A Great Album!
Review of Silk Electric - Diana Ross by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: Some of the tracks hold up well.
Disadvantages: The album is flawed and lacking in some way as a whole.

Background Riding high on the success of her platinum-selling Why Do Fools Fall In Love, Diana returned to the recording studios in early 1982 to self-produce another album. Her contractual obligation with RCA/Capitol dictated she was to deliver one ... Read review

The Ragtime Reverend
Review of From Blues to Gospel - Rev. Gary Davis by 2mennycds

Advantages: Brilliant guitar, raw energy
Disadvantages: Vocals gruff and a little rough

I first encountered Rev Gary Davis’ name in guitar tuition books in the early 1980s. I bought a vinyl album containing some of his 1960s recordings (some of which feature on this CD) and, although I didn’t like all of them, others blew me away. I have a ... Read review
