When Slave to Love: The Best of the Ballads was released in 2000, there hadn't been a true Roxy Music compilation in print for years. Street Life and More Than This were both grab bags of Roxy Music singles and material from Bryan Ferry's solo career. While it's logical to assume that fans of one artist would certainly be interested in the other, the approach never made for a unified compilation – Roxy Music's sound shifted quite a bit over the years, and their earlier, edgier singles never sat well next to the smooth balladeering of Ferry's companion career.
"Slave To The Machine" is heavier, angrier and darker than anything from Dirty Looks back catalogue. This CD was the last one recorded by the band before singer/guitarist Henrik Ostergaard decided to call it a day with DIRTY LOOKS and founded BURNING ORANGE with Scott Robison on vocals. This remastered reissue will comes out with two bonus tracks recorded live at the Warner Theater show in Erie, Pennsylvania on October 5, 2008.
Stone Jam is the fifth album by the American funk band Slave. It was released in 1980 on Cotillion Records and reissued in 1997 on Rhino Records. It was produced by Jimmy Douglass and Steve Washington. The album was listed on the Billboard 200, Billboard's 1981 Year-End Chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It contains the hit singles "Sizzlin' Hot", "Feel My Love", and "Watching You".
"Slave to the Thrill" is the third release (but only the second full-length album) from L.A. melodic rockers Hurricane, which featured vocal powerhouse Kelly Hansen (who would later go on to front Foreigner). Hurricane's style was somewhere between Warrant and House of Lords. It was hard hitting, but very slick and melodic.
Original Album Series contains the first five albums from the mighty Dayton funk band Slave: Slave (1977), The Hardness of the World (1977), The Concept (1978), Just a Touch of Love (1979), and Stone Jam (1980). Each disc is in a thin cardboard pouch with reproductions of the original front and back sleeve designs. Since the series limits itself to five discs, the band's phenomenal sixth album – Show Time (1981) – couldn't fit, but this is a convenient way to snap up the majority of the output from one of the planet's best funk bands. Not even the two-disc The Definitive Groove Collection covers all the great singles and album cuts featured within this small box.
Ever wonder what it would sound like if members of Queensrÿche and Brother Cane got in a room together and let it rip? Well, that's how listeners got Slave to the System. Comprised of longtime Queensrÿche drummer Scott Rockenfield, ex-Queensrÿche guitarist Kelly Gray, and Brother Cane singer/guitarist Damon Johnson and bassist Roman Glick, the only wild card here is mystery guitarist/singer Scott Heard. And in a battle between both bands, Brother Cane wins here, as there's very little of Queensrÿche's prog metal to be heard.
Awesome debut studio disc by this bad-ass, killer, blues-based heavy guitar power trio axeripper from Canada. Vince Hawkins & Company Slave dig deep & rip it hard on this solid set of brain-damaging, get-down, retro-70s, six string mojo/riffage that will rock your good jam:house into the ground. Highly recommended to fans of the Top Three: Hendrix, Trower & Frank Marino.
