It was an indicative situation for Numan's commercial fortunes at the time: A year after the Strange Charm album appeared to little attention outside his dedicated fan base, the Exhibition greatest-hits comp appeared, returning him to the charts with a remix of "Cars." Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth – and also riding a bit of a wave with his participation in the Radio Heart project – Numan took to the road, producing another live album with Ghost.

An unsuccessful attempt to assemble an album of live/BBC material by Dr. Strangely Strange (not enough usable stuff could be found), unusually, led to something better - an entire LP's worth of well-preserved 1969-1970 studio outtakes. Those ten outtakes (with two versions of one song, "Cock-a-Doodle-Doo") form the bulk of this 2007 release, topped off by three 2006 recordings supplied specifically for this project. It's the 1969-1970 material, naturally, that's the main attraction, and it's a surprise to find that - unlike the unissued cuts excavated for most collections of this sort - they're pretty much on a par with the two albums this fairly obscure Irish acid-folk-ish band issued during their brief lifetime…

The subtitle of this album reads "The Difficult Third Album," and in fact 27 years passed between Dr. Strangely Strange's second and third releases. Their first album, Kip of the Serenes, was a singsong psychedelic folk record while their second, Heavy Petting, employed more rock and free-form ideas. This album incorporates traditional Irish music, blues-rock, and acoustic rock & roll, thus separating itself significantly from the two earlier releases and perhaps even paving the way for the BMC Band's The Peace Within, which was released in 1998 by Irish blues guitarist Barry McCabe. He also combined the blues with Irish music…

With cult bands, this is a matter of course: many of them still rest on their hit singles and their typical sound. Alphaville is quite different. Even if hits like "Big In Japan" and "Forever Young" remain unforgotten, the synthpop legends 2017 look into the future - with their new album "Strange Attractor". For seven years fans had to wait for the successor of "Catching Rays On Giant". A time when much happened. Alphaville had to continue on following the loss of keyboardist Martin Lister, who died in 2014…

Ireland's answer to the Incredible String Band, Dr. Strangely Strange engaged in the same type of psychedelic acoustic music with folksy arrangements. With traditional instruments like penny whistle, fiddle, harmonium, and mandolin, Dr. Strangely Strange was more solidly rooted in melody and structure than the group's flaky Scottish counterparts. Produced by British modern folk guru Joe Boyd, "Kip of the Serenes" is built around simple and repetitious melodies occasionally interrupted by stream-of-consciousness musical and lyrical diversions. This simplistic approach would be abandoned with their 1970 follow-up, "Heavy Petting", which saw their first partnership with electric guitarist Gary Moore.

The transcontinental soul/blues duo of Pittsburgh's Billy Price and France's Fred Chapellier took their show on the road (in Europe) to support the release of the duo's Night Work debut. The results are contained on this CD/DVD package, a logical and energetic follow-up to the studio recording that reprises some but not all of those tunes, adds logical covers, and generally ratchets up the sparks, as live albums typically do. The 11-song audio CD runs about half the time of the far more extensive two-hour DVD, but both nail the vibe of shows that featured tough, resilient backing musicians augmented by two horn players.

Even if hits like "Big In Japan" and "Forever Young" remain unforgotten, the synthpop legends 2017 look into the future - with their new album "Strange Attractor". For seven years fans had to wait for the successor of "Catching Rays On Giant". A time when much happened. Alphaville had to continue on following the loss of keyboardist Martin Lister, who died in 2014. The result was a new form of the band, with singer Marian Gold, keyboardist Carsten Brocker, guitarist David Goodes, drummer Jakob Kiersch and bassist Alexandra Merl. It was clear that this also involved changes in their sound. And so "Strange Attractor" is perhaps the most varied album of the band's career. In a total of 13 songs, Alphaville combine 80s electro pop with rock, funk and soul. How it sounds, they already revealed with the first single "Heartbreak City". New songs from a new band: With their seventh album "Strange Attractor", Alpahville 2017 brings fresh air into their oeuvre and the entire pop landscape.
