Shot of Love finds Dylan still in born-again mode, but he's starting to come alive again – which isn't as much a value judgment as it is an observation that he no longer seems beholden to repeating dogma, loosening up and crafting songs again…
Thomas de Pourquery tells us the story of this new Supersonic : After having lived such a beautiful story with the Supersonic and the first album, I did not plan to return to the studio to record a second one. I did not see myself writing music for this group that was born with the masterpieces of Sun Ra (I thought “Who am I, Thomas, to pass after this genius ?!”), neither do a “Play Sun Ra volume II“… I almost came to the idea that the story would stop there … until that night of February 2016 during which I made this incredible dream!
This collection is a good attempt at bringing together Cher's more popular recordings from the mid-'60s to her Casablanca years in the late '70s, and the results are almost a total success. Most of her U.S. Top 40 hits are included (save for "Where Do You Go" and "Alfie"), as well as a few tracks with Sonny ("All I Ever Need Is You," "When You Say Love," live versions of "I Got You Babe" and "The Beat Goes On," and the campy "A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done").
Muscle of Love is the seventh studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 1973. It is the final studio album recorded by the original Alice Cooper band. Cooper stated in an interview at the time of recording that the album marked a return to a basic rock sound. "It's not complicated in any sense and there’s not a lot of theatricality on it. It's very basic rock & roll throughout." Cooper further explained, "Billion Dollar Babies was a studio effort all the way. So was School's Out. It was just so clean that after a few times of hearing it myself, it had no mystery to it. I really wanted this one to have more guts to it. More balls."
