[quote]Together: Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter Live is a live album by brothers Johnny Winter (guitar, vocals) and Edgar Winter (saxophone, vocals), released in 1976.

AllMusic Review:
Individually, Edgar Winter and his brother Johnny Winter are powerful artists, but combined, they are virtually unstoppable. On this live set, the brothers are just having the time of their lives, digging deep into their bag of favorites and pulling out smoking renditions of the Sam and Dave classic "Soul Man" and the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." The history of rock & roll continues with Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" and "Good Golly Miss Molly" and Chuck Berry's "Reelin' and Rockin'." The Winters go Detroit on Mitch Ryder's "Jenny Take a Ride" and pay homage to the King, Elvis Presley, with "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Jailhouse Rock." From start to finish, Edgar and Johnny are having a rockin' and rollin' good time, and that happiness channels over to the listener.
Edgar Winter was born to John Winter II and Edwina Winter on December 28, 1946, in Beaumont, Texas. Both he and his older brother Johnny were born with albinism. From his critically acclaimed 1970 debut release, Entrance, he has demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross the genre lines and do the unexpected. Edgar followed Entrance with two hit albums backed by his group White Trash, a group originally composed of musicians from Texas and Louisiana. White Trash enjoyed huge success with the 1971 release of Edgar Winter's White Trash and with 1972's follow-up live gold album Roadwork. In late 1972, Winter brought together Dan Hartman, Ronnie Montrose and Chuck Ruff to form The Edgar Winter Group, who created such hits as the number one "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride". In 1972, They Only Come Out at Night peaked at number 3 and stayed on the charts for an impressive 80 weeks. Winter also played with Ringo Starr in his ninth All-Starr Band in 2006, in his tenth All-Starr Band in 2008 and in his eleventh All-Starr Band in 2010–11.

Quote:
Outrider is an album by Jimmy Page, released in 1988.

It is his only solo studio album and the first time since 1969 he has recorded with a record label other than Atlantic Records/Swan Song Records. Page recorded the music at his personal studio The Sol.

Robert Plant guests on one track, "The Only One", while Jason Bonham, John's son, plays drums.

Rolling Stone review: 8/25/1988:
He couldn’t have timed it better. The high priest of heavy metal, the pontiff of power riffing and probably the most digitally sampled artist in pop today after James Brown, guitar shaman Jimmy Page returns to the rock wars with his debut solo album — not counting the so-so ’82 soundtrack of Death Wish II — just as the Eighties Led Zeppelin renaissance goes into overdrive.

Too bad timing isn’t everything. Because Outrider, to be painfully honest, is a whole lotta muddle, a bewildering amalgam of trademark Pagey rifferama, utter lyric banality, thundering instrumental tracks topped off by hammy vocals, tantalizing hints of steaming futurist Zeppelin and sudden U-turns back to the Seventies. The album reiterates familiar gifts and well-documented strengths yet lacks any clear-cut direction or sense of aesthetic mission. Too often Page echoes his past without transcending or building on it.

The opening numbers, “Wasting My Time” and “Wanna Make Love,” summarize everything that’s right, and wrong, with Outrider. Working from the old “Black Dog”-“Dancing Days” schematic of muscular, choppy riffs layered with greasy slide guitar over jolting rhythm changes, Page kicks up a quintessential Zeppelin storm, abetted by drummer Jason Bonham, who does his old man proud throughout the record. The three-way collision of skidding bottleneck sounds, growling wah-wah and stabbing lead work over Bonham’s angry whack in “Wanna Make Love” is classic Page guitarchitecture.

What distinguishes “The Only One” from the rest of the album, besides Robert Plant’s guest vocal appearance, is the element of risk. Maybe it was just too much to expect a Zoso for the Nineties on Page’s first solo excursion. But Outrider is as much a victim of underachievement as of overexpectation. As a guitar record, Outrider proves Page is still the sultan of slash, the kaiser of krunch. But where he once held the hammer of the gods, he now sounds a bit dazed and confused.
Years later, Jimmy Page reflected on the album in rather positive terms:
Outrider's all right. It's demo-like compared with those overproduced albums that came out at the time. It didn't do very well—doesn't matter—but I did tour. I was playing music on that tour going right back to The Yardbirds. Jason [Bonham] was the drummer on that tour.
I saw Jason Bonham last week, drumming for Sammy Hagar.

Mosaic is the fourth album by Wang Chung, released in 1986.

Produced and arranged by Wang Chung and Peter Wolf, it produced three US Top 40 songs: "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" (reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100), "Let's Go!" (reached number 9), and "Hypnotize Me".

Peter Wolf also contributed drums, keyboards, synclavier, and choral voices.
Autographed by Wang Chung to Jane Scott.

the liner notes and lyrics also have Jane's handwritten review notes!

Quote:
Jane Scott (May 3, 1919 – July 4, 2011), was an influential rock critic for The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio. During her career she covered every major rock concert in Cleveland and was on a first name basis with many stars. Scott was the first major female rock critic, and then the oldest in a field that was mostly dominated by men. Until her retirement from the newspaper in April 2002 she was known as "The World's Oldest Rock Critic." She was also influential in bringing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to Cleveland.

Scott was a member of the school newspaper while she attended the University of Michigan, graduating in 1941, majoring in English, Speech and Drama and she also earned a teachers certificate. She joined the women's branch of the Navy, the WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), rising to the rank of Lieutenant. In 1952, Scott was hired at The [Cleveland] Plain Dealer [newspaper].

Scott covered the Beatles' first Cleveland performance at Public Hall on September 15, 1964 and traveled to England in 1966 to cover their tour. She also interviewed the Beatles before their August 14, 1966 show at Cleveland Stadium. "When the Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan's show, I knew what the kids really wanted to read. Once I found rock, I was never interested in anything else." At the time, The Plain Dealer was the only major American newspaper to have a full-time music critic on staff, thus Scott is considered to be the world's first rock critic.

Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s she wrote the weekly "What's Happening" column in The Plain Dealer's Friday Magazine, along with regular artist interviews, album reviews and concert reviews.

Lou Reed said she was one of the only people to treat him with respect in his early years as a performer; Lyle Lovett called her a "true friend"; she herself often told the story of accompanying Jimi Hendrix to buy a blue Corvette.

In 1987, The Plain Dealer attempted to replace Scott but was met with strong public outcry and backlash, including feature stories in People Magazine, MTV News, and The Wall Street Journal, resulting in the newspaper's editors backing down from their plans. Scott was inducted in 1991 into the Cleveland Press Club Hall Of Fame.

Scott listed her favorite rock artists: from the 1960s, The Beatles; 1970s, Bruce Springsteen, her favorite rock star of all time; 1980s U2; and 1990s, Lyle Lovett. Her favorite rock song was "Black Water" by the Doobie Brothers. Her favorite rock album was Springsteen's Born To Run. In August 1975, a review of hers stated "His name is Bruce Springsteen. He will be the next superstar."

Scott also was a chirologist, once causing the Who to be late going on stage for a Cleveland concert because she was reading their palms backstage.

Scott retired in April 2002, after 50 years at The Plain Dealer. Scott estimated that she had attended over 10,000 concerts and music events during her career.



Jane died on July 4, 2011.

On August 28, 2011, a memorial service was held for Jane Scott at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. A year after her death, the Rock Hall unveiled a lifesize bronze memorial statue, which has been permanently installed in the Reading Room of the Rock Hall's Library & Archives. The statue was created by Cleveland area sculptor and past president of the Cleveland Institute of Art, David Deming. The Rock Hall also announced the completion of an agreement with the Scott family for the Rock Hall's Library & Archives to acquire Scott's papers, notebooks, and photos relating to her music journalism career in Cleveland.

During their 2107 concert performance at Cleveland Stadium, U2 projected an image of Jane Scott on the video screen for their encore.
Also includes Jane's newspaper article from 3/13/1987 in The Plain Dealer during Wang Chung's concert tour to Cleveland.

Quote:
Stand Up is the third studio album by The Del Fuegos, released in 1987.

The Del Fuegos were a 1980s garage-style rock band. Formed in 1980, the Boston-based band gained success in 1986 on success of their songs "Don't Run Wild" and "I Still Want You". The band's fans included Tom Petty, who appeared on one of the band's songs and featured them as an opening act on one of his tours. The relationship between brothers Warren Zanes and Dan Zanes, then and now, has been described as "fractious". Shortly after the band was dropped by Slash Records due to the commercial disappointment of their third album for the label.

AllMusic Review:
On the front cover of Stand Up, the Del Fuegos third album, lead singer and guitarist Dan Zanes looks as if he's struggling to stay awake, and it seems sadly indicative of a band that was clearly running out of steam.

While guitarist Warren Zanes and Tom Lloyd had contributed to the songwriting on the Del Fuegos' first two albums, on Stand Up Dan wrote all the songs either by himself or with outside contributors (among them producer Mitchell Froom), and with a third guitarist, a handful of guest musicians, a horn section and six backing vocalists contributing to the sessions, this album simply doesn't sound like the work of the same band that made The Longest Day and Boston, Mass.

It doesn't help that Dan Zanes' voice sounds a bit ragged here, and while having Tom Petty and James Burton contribute guitar work to the album certainly seemed like a great idea at the time, the songs just aren't up to what this band was capable of and the performances lack the energy and keen focus of their best work. Between the arrangements and the melodic hooks of tunes like "Wear It Like a Cape" and "A Town Called Love," it's clear that Dan Zanes was embracing his R&B influences while making Stand Up, but his voice just isn't up to the challenge of the material, and the oddball experiment "He Had A Lot to Drink Today" simply sounds like a mistake.

Warren Zanes and drummer Woody Geissman would both leave the Del Fuegos after Stand Up failed to make an impression with either critics or fans, and it's not hard to imagine why -- this album is the sound of a band that has clearly lost the plot.
“INXS is heading for the top,” notes Jane Scott, after the Aussie sextet and the Del Fuegos play Blossom yesterday as WMMS-FM’s [100.7 Cleveland's Rock Station] 6th Appreciation Day concert, 1986.

In 2011, the band played together for the first time in 21 years at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, Massachusetts. These shows raised money for Right Turn, a rehab program run by Woody. Later, they embarked upon a reunion tour beginning in 2012 and ending in Dan and Warren's home town of Concord, New Hampshire.

Peter Bogdanovich's documentary on Tom Petty also resulted in a companion book of a little over 200 pages that is a solid cross-section of stuff from the film, plus additional interviews and photos that didn’t make the final cut. The additional interviews, as well as the editing of this 2015 companion book, were done by Warren Zanes. That means Zanes is to be trusted, and there are many other reasons why he ought to be trusted, as well. His old band, the Del Fuegos, was tight. His subsequent solo work has been decent. He has a Ph.D. in visual and cultural studies that he worked hard to get. He has an excellent record of service as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s vice president, and now he works for Steven Van Zandt’s foundation.
Autographed for late, great rock critic, Jane Scott:
  • "Jane- We're going pretty nuts here. That's for sure! Tom Lloyd" (bass)
  • "Jane, See you in Cleveland again, Warren Zanes" (guitars)
  • "Jane, Rock my face off! Dan Zanes" (guitars/vocals)
  • "Jane, Don't forget to stop and Smell the roses. -Woody" (drums)

Wow. I've been a fan of The Del Fuegos since 1985. Check out what they did after they split up...
  • Dan Zanes (guitars/vocals) released a solo album in 1995. Later, he began recording children's music with his band Dan Zanes and Friends. The band's music became very popular due to heavy airplay on Playhouse Disney and Nick Jr. In 2007, his album Catch That Train! received a Grammy Award for Best Musical Album for Children.
  • Tom Lloyd (bass) went back to college and earned a bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley before earning a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 1999.
  • Warren Zanes (guitars) went on to earn two Master's degrees and a Ph.D. in Visual and Cultural Arts. He is also the Vice President of Education at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He returned to music in 2002 with a solo album. He wrote two biographies on Tom Petty (2007, 2015), "Revolutions in Sound: Warner Bros. Records, the First Fifty Years" (2009), and a biography on Dusty Springfield (2003).
  • Woody Giessmann (drums) founded Right Turn in 2003, a program offering assistance to artists in recovery from drug addiction and other mental health issues.

Love You till Tuesday is a compilation of material by David Bowie, released in 1984 as a companion to the video release of Bowie's 1969 film Love You till Tuesday.

Love You till Tuesday is a promotional film designed to showcase the talents of David Bowie, made in 1969. The film was an attempt by Bowie's manager, Kenneth Pitt, to bring Bowie to a wider audience. Pitt hired his friend Malcolm J Thomson to direct the half-hour film, which was originally planned to showcase seven of Bowie's songs, including four from his 1967 debut album (three of them newly re-recorded for the film), plus the follow-up single "Let Me Sleep Beside You" and new compositions "When I'm Five" and "Ching-a-Ling". It would also include a mime piece performed and narrated by Bowie, The Mask.

Before shooting started on 26 January 1969, Bowie added another new song to the planned film—"Space Oddity". His girlfriend at the time, Hermione Farthingale, also performed in the movie and sang lead vocals on "Ching-a-Ling" with Bowie singing backup. Bowie himself wore a wig throughout the shoot, having cut his hair to army regulation length to audition for The Virgin Soldiers film.

The film was considerably more costly than Pitt had anticipated, and he clashed with Thomson, who wanted to make the "Space Oddity" segment (featuring Bowie playing both 'Ground Control' and 'Major Tom', with the latter becoming seduced by space maidens) considerably more risqué. The film failed to interest any buyers. The film ended up being shelved, and was not released until 1984, when it finally came out on VHS.

In 1984, with Bowie's global fame at an apex, the growing success of home video led Pitt to release the film on VHS and a 'soundtrack' album.

Quote:
School Days is the fourth solo album by jazz fusion bassist Stanley Clarke, released in 1978.

The album reached number 34 in the Billboard 200 chart and number 2 in the Jazz Albums chart.

AllMusic Review:
Every pro electric-bass player and their mothers wore out the grooves of this record when it first came out, trying to cop Clarke's speedy, thundering, slapped-thumb bass licks. Yet ultimately, it was Clarke's rapidly developing compositional skills that made this album so listenable and so much fun for the rest of us, then and now.

The title track not only contributed a killer riff to the bass vocabulary; it is a cunningly organized piece of music with a well-defined structure. Moreover, Clarke follows his calling card with two tunes that are even more memorable -- the sauntering ballad "Quiet Afternoon" and an ebullient, Brazilian percussion-laced number with a good string arrangement and a terrific groove, "The Dancer." Clarke also brings out the standup bass for a soulful acoustic dialogue with John McLaughlin on "Desert Song."

Evidently enthused by their leader's material, David Sancious (keyboards) and Raymond Gomez (guitars) deliver some of their best solos on records -- and with George Duke on hand on one cut, you hear some preliminary flickerings of Clarke's ventures into the commercial sphere. But at this point in time, Clarke was triumphantly proving that it was possible to be both good and commercial at the same time.
Clarke was born in Philadelphia in 1951. His mother sang opera around the house, belonged to a church choir, and encouraged him to study music. He started on accordion, then tried violin. But he felt awkward holding such a small instrument in his big hands when he was twelve years old and over six feet tall. No one wanted the acoustic bass in the corner, so he picked it up. He took lessons on double bass at the Settlement Music School in Philadelphia, beginning with five years of classical music. He picked up bass guitar in his teens so that he could perform at parties and imitate the rock and pop bands that girls liked. Clarke intended to become the first black musician in the Philadelphia Orchestra until he met jazz pianist Chick Corea. In 1973, he and Corea founded the band Return to Forever, performing primarily Latin-oriented music. Fusion was a combination of rock and jazz which they helped develop in the early 1970s.

In 1979, Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones formed the New Barbarians with Clarke and Keith Richards. In 1988, Clarke and drummer Stewart Copeland of the rock band the Police formed Animal Logic with singer-songwriter Deborah Holland. Clarke and Copeland were friends before the Police formed.

His first score, for Pee-wee's Playhouse, was nominated for an Emmy Award. He also composed music for the movies Boyz n the Hood, Passenger 57, and What's Love Got to Do with It.

Clarke has three Grammy Awards.

The Heavy - Sons, CD. First listen. Solid album. Driving rock over a solid soul/funk base (also a solid soul/funk bass). Tight, but not uptight. And, definitely not laid back.

Kate Bush is an eponymous five-song 12" EP by Kate Bush, released in 1983.

The cover depicts Bush in the warrior costume she sports during the music video for one of the tracks, "Babooshka."

Bush began writing songs at 11. She was signed to EMI Records after Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour helped produce a demo tape. Bush came to notice in 1978 when, aged 19, she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single "Wuthering Heights", becoming the first female artist to achieve a UK number one with a self-written song. She has since released 25 UK Top 40 singles. She has released ten studio albums, all of which reached the UK Top 10, including three number-one albums.

Bush turned down an invitation to perform at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony. Instead, a remix of her 1985 single "Running Up that Hill" was played. In 2013, Bush became the only female artist to have top five albums in the UK charts in five successive decades. In 2014, she became the first female performer to have eight albums in the UK Top 40 Albums Chart simultaneously.

Doris Day's Greatest Hits is a compilation album by Doris Day, released in 1958.

AllMusic Review:
Considering Doris Day spent most of her best years with Columbia (late '40s to the mid-'60s), this hits-roundup from the label makes for a perfect introductory disc.

Although a might slim, the 12-track set includes most of the key songs ("Secret Love," "Que Sera, Sera," "Teacher's Pet") and spotlights Day at her vivacious best. Featuring fine takes on "Lullaby of Birdland" and Rodgers & Hart's classic "Bewitched," too, Greatest Hits bubbles over with high-end pop, sturdy arrangements, and, of course, Day's sunshine-in-January pipes. Commence smiling now.
Doris Day (born Doris Mary Kappelhoff; April 3, 1922 – May 13, 2019) began her career as a big band singer in 1939, achieving commercial success in 1945 with two No. 1 recordings, "Sentimental Journey" and "My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time". She embarked on a solo career and recorded more than 650 songs from 1947 to 1967. She received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and was given the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.

She also had a 20-year career as a motion picture actress, including musicals, comedies, dramas and thrillers. She played the title role in Calamity Jane (1953) and starred in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) with James Stewart. Her best-known films are those in which she co-starred with Rock Hudson, chief among them 1959's Pillow Talk, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. She also worked with James Garner, Clark Gable, Cary Grant, James Cagney, David Niven, Jack Lemmon, Frank Sinatra, Richard Widmark, Kirk Douglas, and Lauren Bacall.

After ending her film career in 1968, she starred in her own sitcom The Doris Day Show (1968–1973).

Day's fourth marriage was to Barry Comden from 1976 until 1982. He was the maître d'hôtel at one of Day's favorite restaurants. He knew of her great love of dogs and endeared himself to her by giving her a bag of meat scraps and bones on her way out of the restaurant. He later complained that she cared more for her "animal friends" than she did for him.

In the 1985, Day hosted her own television talk show, Doris Day's Best Friends, including an interview with Rock Hudson, showing the first public symptoms of AIDS; Hudson died a year later.

In 2004, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Day died on May 13, 2019, at the age of 97, after having contracted pneumonia. Her death was announced by her charity, the Doris Day Animal Foundation. Per Day's requests, the Foundation announced that there would be no funeral services, gravesites, or other public memorials.
I bought this on the day Doris died last month, when I realized I didn't have any of her music. Wonderful stuff. RIP, Doris.

L7 - Scatter the Rats, CD. First listen. Rocks hard. Pretty much up to the quality of Bricks are Heavy or Smell the Magic. A clearer recording than those, which you might think would reduce the charm, but it seems to work. A bit less energetic, a bit more considered (i.e. more mature), but if you liked these grungy broads back in the day, you might want to check this one out.

Father of the Bride is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band Vampire Weekend, released May 3, 2019.

The release marked the band's first project in nearly six years, following Modern Vampires of the City (2013, winning the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album), and the group's first project since multi-instrumentalist and producer Rostam Batmanglij's departure from the group. It was primarily produced by Modern Vampires of the City collaborator Ariel Rechtshaid and lead singer Ezra Koenig.

The pop and indie rock album is musically diverse and heavily referential, contrasting heavy and direct lyrics against a bright spring-time musical mood, with a stronger American influence than on the group's previous work.

The album was preceded by three double singles: "Harmony Hall" / "2021", "Sunflower" / "Big Blue" and "This Life" / "Unbearably White". Upon release, it received widespread acclaim from music critics, and became the group's third consecutive album to debut at number one on the US Billboard 200. 13 songs from the album, including all six of its singles, reached the top 50 of Billboard's US Hot Rock Songs chart.

David Fricke of Rolling Stone described the album as a "masterpiece", praising its meticulous attention to detail and musical breadth, and concluding that "Vampire Weekend now look like the smartest guys in the room, marshalling a sumptuous, emotionally complex music perfect in this pop moment". Chris DeVille of Stereogum wrote that the album could potentially be the group's magnum opus and that it "manages to be both a casual joyride and a multi-layered dissertation on the world’s ills". AllMusic wrote that the album "finds Vampire Weekend embracing change and delivering some of their most mature and satisfying music in the process". The Wall Street Journal that the album's quality justified the long wait for its release, writing that despite its length the album felt focused as opposed to sprawling.
