Streets Of Heaven is the new solo album by John Illsley, a founding member of Dire Straits.
Multiple Brit & Grammy award winner and founder member of Dire Straits, John Illsley follows his 2014 studio album 'Testing The Water' with this splendid live album recorded in 2014 at The Half Moon in Putney, London. Includes no less than seven Dire Straits hits like 'Sultans Of Swing', 'Romeo And Juliet' and 'Money For Nothing. Plus great versions of Leonard Cohen’s 'First We Take Manhattan' and Roger Water’s 'Another Brick In The Wall'. John includes several of his own songs which have appeared on his solo albums like Streets Of Heaven and Testing The Water.
Wings of Heaven is the seventh studio album by the English rock band Magnum, released in 1988. The original choice of producers for Wings of Heaven was Roger Taylor and Dave Richards, who had produced Vigilante. This was not realised because of conflicting schedules. Albert Boekholt was suggested at Wisseloord Studios, the Netherlands. The album was mixed at Sarm West Studios in London in January 1988. One song was announced, "That's How The Blues Must Start", but was dropped from the album. The album is certified Silver in the UK.
Just prior to signing with RCA/Novus, John Pizzarelli recorded two sets for Chesky that featured him playing in the swing style that he would soon make quite popular. Although joined by all-stars (pianist Dave McKenna, bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Connie Kay, his father, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, and flugelhornist Clark Terry) rather than his regular trio, Pizzarelli's likable vocals and relaxed guitar solos are not overshadowed. In fact, this is a delightful date, with memorable renditions of such songs as "I'm An Errand Boy for Rhythm," "Lady Be Good," "The Best Man," "Gee Baby Ain't I Good to You" and "Candy." Easily recommended to John Pizzarelli fans.
