Contrary to what its title suggests, The O'Jays in Philadelphia isn't a live album. Rather, the title of this studio date refers to the beginning of their association with Philly's R&B scene and producers/songwriters Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff. What they didn't know in 1969 was just how long and fruitful that association would end up being. This album wasn't the major hit that Back Stabbers would be, but not for lack of strong material. From "One Night Affair" to "Let Me in Your World," this superb album is quintessential Philly soul. While Eddie Levert's gospel-influenced belting is as gritty as anything that came from Stax Records, the production is as notably sleek. A few years later, Gamble & Huff would produce a longer, heavily syncopated version of "Affair" for Jerry Butler that some soul historians exalt as the first disco single.

The 70s were indeed magical times music-wise many of the favourites from the swinging-sixties continued to feature such as Elvis Cliff and 'The Rolling Stones' not forgetting the Beatles, though now having gone their separate ways with varying levels of success they each had chart entries during the 70s era, George and indeed Ringo following Solo careers - John both Solo and with the Plastic Ono Band' and 'Paul' both Solo and with Wings And of course we had many great new names throughout the 70's with artists such as the recently departed 'David Bowie along with the emergence of groups such as Queen Abba 10 cc and T.Rex with the likes of 'Rod Stewart' and the young Michael Jackson pursuing Solo ventures.

Reflecting a recent trend among veteran heavy metal bands, the present-day members of Finland's Amorphis decided to re-record their early work on 2010's Magic and Mayhem (Tales from the Early Years), but at least their motivation was celebrating a 20th anniversary instead of making a quick buck…

Van Manen began his musical career as the lead singer of the symphonic rock band “Target” (1985-1991). After the breakup of “Target” Ralph started his solo career in 1993. The song “Stay Close”, that he and the brothers Robert and Tommy Riekerk performed, was a huge boost for his performances. The album has it all. From punchy rockers until smouldering ballads, all sung with grit and fire. If you like artists like Mark Williamson, Chris Eaton and Dann Huff, don’t miss this one.

What one feels about this 27-song CD will depend entirely upon one's tolerance for soft rock and bubblegum pop. Pickettywitch were huge in England for about two years, and remain one of the more fondly remembered pop/rock groups of their period, mostly by virtue of singer Polly Browne, who has maintained a fandom for 30 years. The sound is soft rock in a modified group context, similar to the kind of music generated by the Partridge Family, the Cowsills, and, on a two-dimensional level, the Archies in America, slick and smooth, catchy and unthreatening; their version of Paul Simon's "Sound of Silence" is something akin to what the New Seekers' rendition might've been like, while "Days I Remember," which came close to charting in America, is akin to the Carpenters trying their hand at blue-eyed soul. It's all rather pretty, for all of its relative wimpiness, and difficult to dislike on that basis – "Solomon Grundy," the B-side that launched their public success, is one of those tunes that was meant for radio airplay two or three times daily, and the title track, a top-five U.K. hit, is a breezy piece of romantic soft rock.

Still riding the success of his triumphant concert at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival, Duke Ellington in 1958 decided to reduce his touring orchestra to a nonet dubbed "the Spacemen" in 1958, and recorded this lone project with them for the Columbia label. Perhaps inspired by the first orbiting satellites, Ellington is not taking cues from George Russell or Sun Ra, whose extraterrestrial inspirations led them down even more progressive paths.
