THE SUPREMES DEBUT AT THE COPACABANA!
Review of Supremes at the Copa (Live Recording) - Supremes (The) by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: This live album demonstates their versatility
Disadvantages: Their own hits are performed at breakneck speed which spoils them.

Review of 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection (Motown 1960s, Vol. 1) - Various Artists by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: All tracks are milestones in popular music history!
Disadvantages: Only twelve recordings featured.

A modern tribute to the old "bluesmen"
Review of Booker's Guitar - Eric Bibb by 2mennycds

Advantages: Pleasant voice, adept guitar, thought provoking songs
Disadvantages: Blues - not to all tastes

This album has an intriguing story behind it that is outlined in the sleeve notes. After a concert in the UK, a fan approached Eric Bibb as he was signing CDs. He offered to show Eric the guitar that had once belonged to the legendary 1930s bluesman Book ... Read review

Review of Bad - Michael Jackson by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Advantages: Exceptional, important and groundbreaking

Michael Jackson – Bad 1987 There is no doubt that Michael Jackson revolutionised the popular music scene in the 1980’s. Love him, loathe him or one of the few indifferent to his music, he broke down barriers and changed the perception of popular musi ... Read review

Evocative songs well sung and accompanied
Review of Penguin Eggs - Nic Jones by 2mennycds

Advantages: Assured and pleasant vocals, moving lyrics, great instrumentation
Disadvantages: Emphasis on vocals, less accessible than some folk albums

I may have first come across Nic Jones through a guitar magazine which contained a transcription of his amazing “Canadee-I-O” which I heard when buying this album, which features it. Equally I may have first encountered his name through Kate Rusby’s “Dro ... Read review

The King of Song in a jazzy punkish Danish way. Marching Church
Review of This World Is Not Enough - Marching Church by cr01

Advantages: Striking at the very least
Disadvantages: Not accessible

It may be because I endured a little vocal training in singing choral Latin and a touch of light opera as a kid (those crazy wacky things that went on in a Welsh Council Estate School Choir in the 1970/80’s dear reader), but today I have a particular rebe ... Read review
