DeWayne Julius Rogers is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known for the tender acoustic piano-based ballad "Say You Love Me," a charting single from his 1975 RCA album It's Good to Be Alive. Natalie Cole's cover of the song was the first single from her album "Snowfall in the Sahara".
In some ways, it's easy to think of A Night on the Town, Rod Stewart's second album for Warner, as a reprisal of the first, cut with many of the same musicians as Atlantic Crossing, produced once again by Tom Dowd, and even following its predecessor's conceit of having a "Slow Side" and "Fast Side" (granted, this flips the two around, opening with the slow one first)…
Tainted Nation is a bunch of experienced musicians with the likes of Helloween, The Poodles, King Diamond or Eden's Curse on their record. Singer Pete Newdeck, known as drummer, is able to surprise once again as a diverse and energetic frontman. "Pulling Me Under", a duet with ISSA as well as the powerful titlesong and the stirring "Karma" stick out of a very good hardrock album with metal elements and a slightly modern touch at times…
All their greatest recordings on one 2CD set. Based around their ‘On The Beach With The Paragons’ album and augmented with a CD and a half’s worth of bonus tracks. Includes the seminal ‘The Tide Is High’. In 1998, the French Jet Set label reissued this classic 1967 album on CD. The original art work was included along with informative new liner notes and write-ups on both the Paragons and Duke "the Trojan" Reid (founder of the Kingston-based Treasure Isle Records and an important figure in Jamaican music). Originally a Treasure Isle LP, On the Beach with the Paragons sold well in Jamaica and also became a hit in England (where reggae and ska have been huge since the '60s).

A multi-instrumentalist who, like Stevie Wonder, mixes genres effortlessly, Britain's Eddy Grant deserves a wider audience, but for those who want just the hits, this collection fills the bill.
Could there be any more confrontational sound in Miles Davis' vast catalog than the distorted guitars and tinny double-timing drums reacting to a two-note bass riff funking it up on the first track from On the Corner? Before the trumpet even enters the picture, the story has been broken off somewhere in the middle, with deep street music melding with a secret language held within the band and those who can actually hear this music – certainly not the majority of Miles' fan base built up over the past 25 years.
