I have a collection of 135 titles (142 CDs) issued by Goldmine/Soul Supply record company. This is not a box set but rather it is a collection of albums that are similar in that they all are rare soul compilations by the same company. There are some tracks that are on more than one album but considering the scope and magnitude of this collection, the number of duplicated tracks is small. Some CDs have good artwork, some have none, most have some artwork of varying quality. All are 320 CBR MP3 and are fully tagged. Original post now has added CDs.
Dopo la Storia d’Italia di Montanelli, il Corriere della Sera presenta una nuova opera che non può mancare nella tua biblioteca: la grande Storia Universale. I fatti, i temi, gli eventi e i personaggi che hanno fatto la storia rivivono in una nuova collana dallo straordinario valore culturale…
For those of you who recall Bobby's late '70's work, this will be a pleasant surprise. In my opinion, an artist who can play all genre's of jazz is truly a jazz musician. And that is what Mr. Lyle does here. Sraight ahead, a little "fusion" if you will, and then todays "smooth" jazz. Then add a little Jobim for a beautiful rendition of "Wave." Listen closely to his improvisation over the changes. Thank you, Mr. Bobby Lyle.
It's a tribute to Bobby Caldwell's consummate songwriting skills that his three original compositions – including the previously recorded, melancholy would-be classic "Stuck on You" – fit in perfectly alongside standards by the likes of Cole Porter and Sammy Cahn/Jimmy Van Heusen on the very tradition-minded Blue Condition. Best known for easygoing R&B-flavored adult pop vocals, Caldwell reaches back and superimposes himself in front of lively big-band arrangements that recall classic Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Bobby Darin recordings. He never approaches those idols in terms of vocal distinction, but that doesn't seem to be his point. He's more reflecting upon his inspirations than trying to emulate them, rewarding longtime fans with the sort of artistry they suspected might exist all along. The uninitiated, however, might enjoy all the surrounding pleasantries and wonder why we need another guy out there doing classics when he clearly doesn't measure up to those standards vocally.
