New Light Through Old Windows is a compilation album by Chris Rea, released in 1988. The album consists primarily of re-recordings of songs released on earlier Rea albums, as well as two new songs, "Working on It" (which gave him a rare U.S. chart single, peaking at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100, and giving him his only #1 single on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart) and "Driving Home for Christmas.", also the re-recording of "On the Beach" gave him another rare US hit, it peaked #9 on the US AC chart in 1988 and #12 in the UK chart.

New Light Through Old Windows is a significant baker's dozen of Chris Rea's early material, leading up to but not including work from his Road to Hell album. Rea's stature was always larger in the United Kingdom than in the U.S., with his only American Top 40 single coming from the newer version of "Fool (If You Think It's Over)," a re-release of the same song which failed to garner any attention the first time around. Rea's soothing voice is indeed attractive, and the songs that are included on this set are wisely chosen examples of his smooth style…

New Light Through Old Windows is a significant baker's dozen of Chris Rea's early material, leading up to but not including work from his Road to Hell album. Rea's stature was always larger in the United Kingdom than in the U.S., with his only American Top 40 single coming from the newer version of "Fool (If You Think It's Over)," a re-release of the same song which failed to garner any attention the first time around. Rea's soothing voice is indeed attractive, and the songs that are included on this set are wisely chosen examples of his smooth style. "I Can Hear Your Heartbeat" from Water Sign and "Stainsby Girls" off Shamrock Diaries are two of the better tracks that showcase his slick, demure-like manner. "On the Beach," from his best-selling album of the same name, and his highest charted single in the U.K., the perky "Let's Dance," represent a lean toward a more commercial sound.

RIP Mr. Mose Allison (November 11, 1927 – November 15, 2016)

The Mose Allison installment in Atlantic's Jazz Anthology series of 1970 is superior to most in that line simply on the grounds of time. Since Allison's songs were usually brief, Atlantic was able to fit 12 of them onto a single LP and thus provide a wider selection of his output, unlike others in that series that included only five or six tracks, making it serve as a pretty good capsule introduction to one of American music's most idiosyncratic individualists. Many of his most famous songs are here – "Your Mind Is on Vacation," "New Parchman," "I'm the Wild Man," "I Don't Worry About a Thing," and "Your Molecular Structure," along with covers like "Rollin' Stone" and a rushed live remake of his biggest "hit," Willie Dixon's "Seventh Son".

Diamonds: The Best of Shirley Bassey anthologizes nearly all of the hits connected to Bassey during her '60s and '70s prime: "Goldfinger," "Diamonds Are Forever," "Big Spender," and "Something." Compared to most of the dozens of Bassey compilations littering the shelves, this one tends more toward Bassey the ballad singer than brassy belter, with selections like "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Who Can I Turn To," and "What Now My Love."

Label: Blue Note Records | Rel: 1988

Although one can't lose with any of Shorter's classic Blue Note titles from the '60s, this sampler is perfect for newcomers just wanting to get their feet wet. Covering the period 1964-1969, the nine tracks include highlights from Night Dreamer ( "Virgo" ), Speak No Evil (the title track and "Infant Eyes" ), and Adam's Apple ( "Footprints" ). There's also the title cut from Juju (replete with a sparkling Elvin Jones solo) and the superb "Lost" off of The Soothsayer. With nice additions from Schizophrenia and the fusion-leaning Super Nova, that just leaves the long-in-the-vaults Etc. (one of the saxophonist's best) and All Seeing Eye to account for. With more than enough Shorter material to dive into, and top hard bop contributions from the likes of Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, James Spaulding, and Joe Chambers, these oversights shouldn't pose any great dilemmas. Besides, it shouldn't be long before Shorter's entire Blue Note catalog sits snugly on your shelves.
