A Small Collection of Motown's Definitive Classics
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.

Introduction Who would have guessed that when Berry Gordy Jr set up a small record company called Motown with an $800 loan, it would become one of the world's leading record labels. Bridging the gap between black and white culture, Motown was the pion ... Read review

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

So Good they called it BAD! Michael Jackson's 3rd Album
Review of Bad - Michael Jackson by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Advantages: Exceptional, important and groundbreaking
Disadvantages: None

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

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

Advantages: Some of the tracks are classic early Motown
Disadvantages: Some of the tracks are far from stellar

Background The Supremes formed in early 1959 and were originally called The Primettes. At first they were a quartet, comprising of a fourteen-year-old Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson and Betty McGlown. In 1960 Betty McGlown departed to be re ... Read review

Review of Are You Satisfied - Slaves by dangaroo

Advantages: Fantastic lyrics and upbeat, energetic sound, originality

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

Advantages: Lovely vocals and instrumentation, varied songs, accessible

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

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

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
