By now, anyone who has heard one of Mark Lanegan's solo albums knows exactly what the others will sound like – Lanegan's weathered, smoky voice intones tales of quiet desperation over echoing electric guitar arpeggios, folky acoustic guitar work, and the occasional piano, organ, or violin embellishment. This approach has resulted in a compelling body of work, often possessed of remarkable depth, but it's also become something of a stylistic straitjacket over the course of several albums. And that's the only major knock against the otherwise brilliant I'll Take Care of You, Lanegan's fourth solo album, which marks the first time it hasn't taken him four years to deliver a follow-up. Perhaps that's because there's no original material here – I'll Take Care of You applies the drifting, elegiac qualities of its predecessors to a selection of well-chosen, mostly underexposed folk, country, and blues covers.
2012 collection from the R&B trio. They emerged from the late '70s Disco boom and helped define the '80s with a string of dance floor hits, innovative dance moves (they introduced the UK to body-popping) and trend setting 'wedge' hairstyles. This collection includes their four UK Top 10 hits ('I Can Make You Feel Good', 'A Night to Remember', 'There It Is' and 'Dead Giveaway') plus a further seven UK top 40 classics.
