Review of Ralph, Albert & Sydney (Live Recording) - Ralph McTell by 2mennycds

Advantages: Great collection of earlyish Ralph, thought provoking, warm
Disadvantages: May be difficult to source

I owned this on vinyl longer ago than I care to remember and was delighted when it was released on CD. It is one of my favourite Ralph albums, and even contains one or two items not available on his studio recordings. And, to me, this is Ralph at his best ... Read review

Made his mark beautifully - with a touch of indecency?!
Review of Maker's Mark - Tony McManus by 2mennycds

Advantages: Gorgeous instrumental, soothing, uplifting
Disadvantages: Will make a guitar player green with envy!

There’s something not right about this album. In fact, to me, there’s something a bit indecent about it. I don’t mean the lyrics – there aren’t any. So let me explain. With my tongue firmly in my cheek, I hasten to add! Indecent?! Tony McManus is ... Read review

Your blues will be gone with this
Review of Gone Woman Blues - Rory Block by 2mennycds

Advantages: Authentic but not slavishly copied
Disadvantages: None - but it's blues, so not to all tastes

Rory Block From its beginnings, blues music has largely been a male-dominated genre. This is still the case today. Rory (Aurora) Block is a breath of fresh air. She can play acoustic blues guitar alongside the best and can sing blues convincingly, to ... Read review

Diana Ross Grows Up!
Review of Touch Me in the Morning - Diana Ross by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: A classic Diana Ross album and one of her best of the 1970s
Disadvantages: None for me - but some may prefer her earlier work which held the classic Motown sound.

(THIS IS MY LAST CIAO REVIEW OF 2015 - AND OF COURSE I HAD TO END THE YEAR WITH DIANA ROSS LOL) The History After Diana had completed work on Lady Sings The Blues, she embarked on a number of recording projects in 1972, including an album of duets ... Read review

The First In The Motown Chartbusters Compilation Series
Review of Motown Chartbusters, Vol. 1 [Motown] - Various Artists by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: A solid line-up of Motown classics from 1966-67
Disadvantages: This is one in a series of compilations - some may want a more well-rounded compilation

The Motown Chartbusters series were compilations that usually ran in approximate chronological order, though it didn't begin until 1966. This means that several earlier Motown classics are not included in the series, although some of the earlier songs t ... Read review

"You Can't Hurry Love"...The Supremes A' Go-Go To No.1...AGAIN!!!
Review of Supremes A' Go-Go [Remastered] - Supremes (The) by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: Features their all-time classics: 'Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart' and 'You Can't Hurry Love'
Disadvantages: Lacks original material - though this was the norm for Motown's studio albums in the 1960s.

The Singles The Supremes - Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson - continued effortlessly to pump out mega hits in 1966. By this point they had a total of six number one hit singles, enjoyed groundbreaking success that had broken down several ra ... Read review

Would you like to be "Eaten Alive" by Diana Ross?
Review of Eaten Alive - Diana Ross by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: One of Diana Ross' best albums recorded during her tenure at RCA Records
Disadvantages: Not for me - but this isn't as soulful as some of her other albums; it's more pop.

Background Diana's shrewd choice of collaborators continued to impress when she teamed up with The Bee Gees for her fifth studio project for RCA/Capitol Records in 1985. The Bee Gees had a proven track record in producing female artists, having woven ... Read review

Review of Stairwell Serenade - Woody Mann by 2mennycds

Advantages: Adept playing, varied genres

Review of Meet the Supremes - Supremes (The) by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: Interesting to hear the different styles they experimented with before becoming famous
Disadvantages: Too many nondecript numbers

Diana Ross Goes Hip Hop - And Gets Slaughtered By Critics!
Review of Workin' Overtime - Diana Ross by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: All tracks bear instantly catchy hooks
Disadvantages: A few too many soundalike numbers, which verge on formulaic at points

After a rather shaky stint at RCA Records between 1981 and 1987, Diana Ross decided to severe ties with the label and return to her roots in 1988 and the label that had catapulted her into a worldwide superstar: Motown. She was reported to have said, “I'm ... Read review
