The Best of Van Morrison was Morrison's first greatest hits album and featured songs that were compiled from 25 years of material, including "Wonderful Remark", a song which first appeared on the soundtrack to the 1983 film The King of Comedy. Released in 1990 by Polydor Records, the album was a critical and commercial success, becoming one of the best-selling records of the 1990s and helping revive Morrison's mainstream popularity. Its success encouraged him to release a second and third greatest hits volume in 1993 and 2007, respectively. The album remains Morrison's best-seller.

In 1988, Roberta Flack made a comeback after a long hiatus away from the recording studios with a new album of songs in the adult contemporary vein. Using a vast array of top session musicians whose names would easily fill a page and crowd out liner notes, "Oasis" was released to public indifference, even though the title track did hit #1 on the R & B charts.

Let Love Rule is the debut studio album of American rock musician Lenny Kravitz, released on September 6, 1989 by Virgin Records. Then-wife Lisa Bonet wrote the lyrics to "Fear" and co-wrote the lyrics on the song "Rosemary"; other than that the album is virtually a one-man Kravitz show, as he wrote and produced all the songs and played nearly all the instruments. Let Love Rule reached number 61 on the Billboard 200, while it peaked at number 56 on the UK Albums Chart. The album is also featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The video for the lead single "Let Love Rule" was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist.

Like the artist himself, the music on this brilliant album defies all categories, embracing Terry Callier's wide range of influences and experiences. Callier's musical kaleidoscope is filled with funk, rock, folk, jazz, and even classical influences. "Dancing Girl" opens the album with Charles Stepney's majestic orchestration. This opus is the album's pinnacle, moving with soft intensity toward soul-stirring crescendos. Songs like "What Color Is Love" and "Ho Tsing Mee (A Song of the Sun)," an elegant antiwar prayer of confusion, somehow avoid clichés or take them to another level. "You Goin' to Miss Your Candyman" was made popular by Urban Species when they sampled it on "Listen" in the early '90s, and not surprisingly, it sounds better in its original form…

After the success of the Vol 1 Box comes Vol 2 of the Classic Album Collection. Spanning from "Old New Borrowed and Blue" to 2013's classic soul themed collection "Rain or Shine" the box comes in a slipcase and contains 5 albums housed in mini LP type sleeves. Paul Carrack, the hugely respected singer-songwriter who is the voice of many of the landmark British pop songs of the past 40 years, released a stunning new album, Soul Shadows, on January 15, 2016. The record sees him at the absolute peak of his powers as a vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Paul Carrack surely deserves the latter-day title of the hardest-working man in showbusiness.

Herbie Hancock is one of the most important and influential jazz musicians of the late twentieth century. A revered pianist, he is just as controversial by his early fans, as was his employer and revelator : Miles Davis. But unlike the trumpeter who never turned back (except at the extreme end of his life), Hancock never stopped zigzagging between acoustics and electronics, classical, jazz and R&B, standards and compositions, solo and orchestra. A Disciple, in his own way, of Bill Evans, he quickly imposed his own harmonic and rhythmic approach, not refusing black American influences, blues, funk, gospel, rhythm'n blues, while absorbing the complexities of classical culture.

Label: Sony Music Entertainment Inc. (USA) | Cat.# A 28783 | Released: 1998-01-12

Disco 9000's ten tracks mark the sharp transition in Taylor's amazing career, from being a straight soul singer to being a soul-disco singer. While the keyboards and electronic drums are everywhere present and the beats are geared to the dancefloor, there is nothing here that is really inconsistent with Taylor's trademark soul delivery. For example, check the in-the-pocket groove of "Play Something Pretty" or the R&B-reggae fusion in "I Got This Thing for Your Love." Certainly the hard funk on "Your Love Is Rated X" and the title track (written by Taylor) might seem at odds with the smooth soul crooner's ideal, but it's still there, and it rises above the arrangements into the heights of R&B heaven.

Although the Crusaders could not have known it at the time, their recording of "Street Life" (which features a memorable vocal by Randy Crawford) was a last hurrah for the 20-year old group. Their recordings of the next few years would decline in interest until the band gradually faded away in the '80s. However this particular set is well worth picking up for the 11-minute title cut and there is good playing by the three original members (Wilton Felder on tenor, soprano and electric bass, keyboardist Joe Sample and drummer Stix Hooper) along with guitarist Barry Finnerty; horn and string sections, plus additional guitarists are utilized on Sample's commercial but listenable arrangements.

Five classic Paul Carrack albums in mini LP style wallets housed in a wrap-around slipcase. Great Music - Great Value. Includes the albums Blue Views, Beautiful World, Satisfy My Soul, Still Groovin & It Ain't Over. Paul Carrack, the hugely respected singer-songwriter who is the voice of many of the landmark British pop songs of the past 40 years, released a stunning new album, Soul Shadows, on January 15, 2016. The record sees him at the absolute peak of his powers as a vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Paul Carrack surely deserves the latter-day title of the hardest-working man in showbusiness. Soul Shadows came in the wake of Carrack's latest sojourn as featured vocalist and keyboard player in Eric Clapton's band for his UK and international tour, the result of their longtime friendship and mutual respect. The new album was the follow-up to 2013's warmly-received Rain Or Shine, which maintained Paul's recurring status as a staple of the BBC Radio 2 playlist.

What a shame that Wilton Felder and Wayne Henderson didn't have enough confidence in their legendary trombone/sax chemistry to feature it in the forefront more. Instead they relegate themselves (and the jumpy, soulful groove tracks behind them) to supporting roles behind not simply overtly commercial vocals but super-cheesy ones at that. On "Keep That Same Old Feeling," they tarnish a sharp horn tradeoff with pointless female vocals that remind us we're "jamming with the Jazz Crusaders." Henderson himself hurts a hip new arrangement of "(You've Got) Personality" by singing the lead himself, while "Party Joint" wastes a cool, marching brass sound with a repetitive vocal line that sounds like it came from a bad 70s funk record.
