Back in 2000, Golden Bay Records released an album hailed as one of the best New Zealand produced ambient records of the decade. Featuring a warm, watery womb of sound that leaves you feeling naked and newborn, Bluey relies on the dislocating properties of dub to give a sense of strangeness and space, creating an effect that will have you sinking so deep into the upholstery, you'll need a ladder to climb out! A journey into all things deep, downbeat and dubby, the album opens with the epic, Rhythm and Sound-esque title track, which has been a crowd favourite every time Bluey has played live. While Just One More and 8m Swell are bouncy breaks numbers, and All The Time In The World and Sticky Pond fuse dub and trance tracks such as Skip'n'Swing show a more funky side…

The Billy Ocean Collection, released through Sony in the U.K., contains material that predates Ocean's move to Jive and the singer's subsequent U.S. mainstream breakthrough. Prior to the likes of "Caribbean Queen" and "Suddenly," he was more popular in the U.K., recording for the GTO label and scoring late-'70s hits with "Love Really Hurts Without You" (number two in the U.K., but also a Top Ten club hit in the U.S.), "L.O.D. (Love on Delivery)," and "Stop Me (If You've Heard It All Before)." The disc also includes some highlights from his early-'80s albums, including "Nights (Feel Like Getting Down)" – an excellent slice of slick disco-funk that reached number seven on the Black Singles chart. For an overview of Ocean's entire career, The Ultimate Collection (2004) is the place to go, but The Billy Ocean Collection demonstrates that he had a lot going for him prior to full-on U.S. stardom.
461 Ocean Boulevard is Eric Clapton's second studio solo album, arriving after his side project of Derek and the Dominos and a long struggle with heroin addiction. Although there are some new reggae influences, the album doesn't sound all that different from the rock, pop, blues, country, and R&B amalgam of Eric Clapton…
Tear Down These Walls is the seventh solo studio album by British recording artist Billy Ocean. It was originally released in January 1988 by Jive and Arista as the follow-up to Ocean's critically and commercially successful 1986 album Love Zone. It features guest backing vocalists, including The Manhattans, Will Downing, Carroll Thompson, and Mary Cassidy, and is generally regarded as the culmination of the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of Ocean's later work. On release, the album was received favourably by the majority of music critics. Ocean's second most commercially successful solo album, it went on to peak at #3 on the UK Albums Chart and reached #18 on the Billboard 200.
