Lee Curtis & The All-Stars - It's Lee (1994)


1994 | Pop, Rock, Beat | Mp3 320 kbps | 129 Mb

Lee Curtis (aka Peter Flannery) at his best was a credible white soul singer in the mid-'60s Liverpool mode, and might have been another Dave Berry if he'd had a little luck on the British charts. As it is, listening to almost any of his individual tracks (especially after the first couple of Decca singles), one has to wonder how he never made it outside of Germany -- this album covers his work from 1964 through 1967, when he finally called it quits following a car crash in Germany, and it's all solid U.K.-style R&B-based rock & roll, including a beautifully guttural performance on "Slow Down," among other highlights. One also begins to understand where his limitations manifested themselves -- as time went on, Curtis tailored his sound to the tastes of the German audiences that adored him, and pop music, even in the rock & roll era, has always had a fixation on (or a tolerance for) saxophones, that American and British rock & roll outgrew once it evolved past Bill Haley's sound; and courtesy of Dave McShane, there's lots of good reed playing here that would simply have rolled off the ears of most U.K. listeners, much less U.S. audiences; Chris Dennis tries to do some impressive things on the organ, which is all well and good, but missing, amid the powerful vocals and all of their playing, is the guitar -- the lead work here by Paul Pilnick (a future member of Stealers Wheel and Deaf School) lacks presence and authority, and it all sounds "off" somehow. Additionally, Curtis and the band tend to be much more focused on the singles, which is obvious once one gets to the six bonus tracks here; as late as 1966, with "Mohair Sam" and the pop/rock side "Kelly," featuring Piggy Yanach on keyboard and someone called Scottish Dave on guitar, the singles just pump out energy and excitement, which is more intermittent on Curtis' album. In fairness, Curtis and everyone else throw themselves head-first into "Wooly Bully," and he gets points for having the courage to cover "Mickey's Monkey," even if the beat is slowed down just a touch too much. Liverpool completists should own this simply as an example of one of the better offshoots of Merseybeat ever to come out of Hamburg, and as a showcase for a great, too-little-known singing talent. [The CD was reissued with bonus tracks in 1994.]

Bob Seger - I Knew You When (Deluxe Edition) (2017)

 

2017 | Rock | FLAC | 380 Mb

Mortality is on Bob Seger's mind on I Knew You When, an album dedicated to his departed friend Glenn Frey. I Knew You When contains two tributes to Frey -- the sepia-toned title track and "Glenn Song," the latter available only on the album's deluxe edition -- but the onetime Eagle isn't the only dead rock star to haunt the album. Seger covers Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, both selections -- "Busload of Faith" and "Democracy" -- nodding to the American mess of 2017, another element that adds a sense of immediacy to the record. Despite these undercurrents of sentiment and politics, I Knew You When can't quite be called a meditative, melancholy record, not with roughly half the record devoted to fist-pumping arena-fillers that feel piped in from several different eras. "Runaway Train" is confined by a robotic pulse that channels "Shakedown," "The Highway" is dressed with '80s synths, and "The Sea Inside" is a clumsy nod to Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," sounds that not only fight with Seger's protests and tributes but fight with each other. These old-fashioned album rockers are so loud and awkward, they overshadow the excellent singer/songwriter album that lurks at the core of I Knew You When. Such imbalance makes I Knew You When a bit incoherent, yet in its quietest and angriest moments, it offers some of the best music Seger has made in the 21st century.

1. Gracile (2:46), 2. Busload Of Faith (4:30), 3. The Highway (3:36), 4. I Knew You When (3:50), 5. I’ll Remember You (3:46), 6. The Sea Inside (4:12), 7. Marie (3:25), 8. Runaway Train (4:08), 9.

The double-disc box set Storyteller, Poet, Philosopher concentrates on Tom T. Hall's talents as a narrative songwriter, eschewing some of his better-known novelties for lesser-known, but better-written, serious songs. That doesn't mean the box is devoid of hits -- all of the important ones are here. What it does mean is that Storyteller, Poet, Philosopher is the first Tom T. Hall compilation to convey accurately the scope of his talents, as well as his achievements.

Hank Thompson - The Pathway Of My Life ~ 1966-1986 (2013)


2013 | Country | Mp3 320 kbps | 8 CD | 1,57 Gb

Early in his extensive liner notes for Bear Family's eight-disc box The Pathway of My Life: 1966-1986, Scott B. Bomar quotes something Hank Thompson told his biographer, Warren Kice: "I was never happy with those records and I never thought it was my thing. Nobody wanted to do my style of music and I never was able to get the records with Dot that I did with Capitol." Presumably, Thompson held the records he made for Warner Bros., ABC, and Churchill -- the other three labels he recorded for after leaving Capitol in 1964 -- in a similar low regard and, to an extent, his mild disdain is understandable. The Capitol records he made with his Brazos Valley Boys between 1947 and 1965 -- boxed up, along with his handful of sides for Globe and Blue Bonnet, in Bear Family's 12-disc 1996 box Hank Thompson & His Brazos Valley Boys -- were indeed the singer's popular and creative peak, monumental Western swing that rivaled Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. The 20 years of music collected on The Pathway of My Life sees Thompson constantly adjusting to the times, first by trimming his group, which reached 14 musicians at its peak, to a core five or six, then allowing producer Joe Allison to sweeten his Western swing with syrupy backing vocals -- a questionable idea made distasteful by the decision to have the singers mimic steel guitar lines. Allison added these sugary vocals with the intent of polishing Thompson up for the changing pop charts and it worked, with "On Tap in the Can or in the Bottle" and "Smoky the Bar" reaching the Top Ten in 1968. Beneath that gloss -- and it's possible to hear around these tacky accouterments, as the whittled-down band remains muscular and is sometimes accentuated by guitarist Merle Travis -- this music is hard Texas country and, once he parted ways with Allison and moved from Warner to ABC, the purity of his country could easily be heard. At times, he'd follow the shifting tides of fashion -- it's disarming to hear fuzz guitars on the Allison-era "But That's All Right" but natural to hear him sing "Behind Closed Doors" -- and sometimes he'd indulge in a bout of nostalgia (he recorded a nice tribute to the Mills Brothers in the early '70s, and it's fun to hear him reconnect to his big-band roots), but he generally stuck to his tried-and-true Texas country. His last Top Ten was called "The Older the Violin, the Sweeter the Music," a nod to his advancing age, and if the productions of the late '70s and early '80s do sound a little brittle and cheap, the same can't be said of Thompson himself: as this big box proves, he was a warm, robust, cheerful vocalist who made sweet music.

John Lennon - Walls And Bridges (1974)


1974 | Rock | FLAC | 433 Mb

Walls and Bridges was recorded during John Lennon's infamous "lost weekend," as he exiled himself in California during a separation from Yoko Ono. Lennon's personal life was scattered, so it isn't surprising that Walls and Bridges is a mess itself, containing equal amounts of brilliance and nonsense. Falling between the two extremes was the bouncy Elton John duet "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night," which was Lennon's first solo number one hit. Its bright, sunny surface was replicated throughout the record, particularly on middling rockers like "What You Got" but also on enjoyable pop songs like "Old Dirt Road." However, the best moments on Walls and Bridges come when Lennon is more open with his emotions, like on "Going Down on Love," "Steel and Glass," and the beautiful, soaring "No. 9 Dream." Even with such fine moments, the album is decidedly uneven, containing too much mediocre material like "Beef Jerky" and "Ya Ya," which are weighed down by weak melodies and heavy over-production. It wasn't a particularly graceful way to enter retirement.

Kenny Rogers - Greatest Hits (1980)


1980 | Country | Mp3 320 kbps | 107 Mb

This particular Kenny Rogers collection focuses on the singer's EMI America chart entries from the late '70s and early '80s. The 12-track sampling includes "Don't Fall in Love With a Dreamer," "She Believes in Me," "Coward of the County," "Lady," and "The Gambler." "Reuben James" and "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" are re-recordings by Rogers, not the versions he made popular in the late '60s with his group the First Edition. Still, this is a good set for those who only want the hits.

1. The Gambler (3:32), 2. Love The World Away (3:14), 3. Everytime Two Fools Collide (3:02), 4. Long Arm Of The Law (4:18), 5. Lady (3:54), 6. Don't Fall In Love With A Dream (3:42), 7. Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town (2:52), 8. She Believes In Me (4:13), 9. Coward Of The County (4:18), 10. Lucille (3:41), 11. You Decorated My Life (3:39), 12. Reuben James (2:40)
