Although Count Basie gets cobilling with Ella Fitzgerald on this concert recording from the 1979 Montreux Jazz Festival, the veteran pianist is only on the final of the 11 songs. His big band, along with pianist Paul Smith, backs the veteran singer for a set of standards and, although Fitzgerald was beginning to fade, she could still hint strongly at her former greatness. Highlights include "Sweet Georgia Brown," "'Round Midnight" and "Honeysuckle Rose."

Music from one of the most specific science-fiction films in the history of Czechoslovak cinematography, and a unique chapter in the rich artistic output of Martin Kratochvíl. On the 35th anniversary of the recording of the material, "Temné Slunce" has finally been released. "Temné Slunce" (Dark Sun) is an adaptation of "Krakatit", a novel by Karel Čapek published in the interwar period. It tells a story of the inventor of an ultra-dangerous explosive that is trying as hard as possible to hide the formula from the great of this world, to prevent it from total destruction. The film adaptation of Otakar Vávra transposes the story to the Cold War reality, full electronics and secret agents. The film was received as a cheap propaganda trick, but also… as an unusually impressive action movie…

"Out of Control" is the 2nd solo studio album (his first being his 1978 self-titled) released by former Kiss drummer Peter Criss. Recording for the album began in March 1980, when Criss was still officially a member of Kiss. The album sold very poorly, and was not re-released on CD until 1997, as the Kiss reunion tour was underway. The lone single from the album, "By Myself", failed to chart. The album features a hidden bonus track of a cover of As Time Goes By. The album also included a cover of the song "You Better Run" by The Young Rascals.

The single "Stomp!" became a dance hit, reaching #1 on both the R&B singles and disco charts and top ten on the pop singles chart. "Light Up the Night" was the final Brothers Johnson album to be produced by Quincy Jones. When Jones left A&M Records, he was contractually barred from having contact with the brothers.

This CD, recorded solo during his first European visit in 1980 as member of the San Francisco Blues Festival, ideally captures all the emotion of his intense voice, and the remarkable charm and sensitivity of his powerful piano.
Before he was 21 years old, Texas-born pianist Little Willie Littlefield had etched an all-time classic into the blues lexicon. Only trouble was, his original 1952 waxing of "Kansas City" (here titled "K.C. Loving") didn't sell sufficiently to show up on the charts (thus leaving the door open for Wilbert Harrison to invade the airwaves with the ubiquitous Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller composition seven years later)…

"No Night So Long is a 1980 album by the vocalist Dionne Warwick. It was her second album for the Arista label (originally issued as # AL 9526). The album was recorded during the spring of 1980 and was released that July. It has sold over 500,000 copies in the US alone. The album's title track, "No Night So Long" was written by Richard Kerr and Will Jennings, the same team that wrote Warwick's 1979 comeback hit "I'll Never Love This Way Again". Isaac Hayes and Adrienne Anderson contributed another song, "We Never Said Goodbye" (the duo had provided Warwick with "Deja Vu" in 1979 from her previous album "Dionne"). The title track is one of two U.S. charting songs from the album, reaching #23. The other hit, "Easy Love," peaked at #62. Both songs were also hits on the Adult Contemporary chart. "Easy Love" peaked at #12 and "No Night So Long" spent three weeks at #1. This album was reissued on CD by Nippon/Phonogram-Arista in Japan in 1986, but only 500 copies were pressed.

A new decade, a new lineup, with Frank Bornemann on guitar and vocals, Klaus-Peter Maziol (who stayed on from the previous lineup) on bass, Hannes Folberth on keyboards, Hannes Arkona on guitars, and British born drummer Jim McGillivray. This marked a new direction for the band, a more accessible, direct approach in their music…

"I'm No Hero" is a 1980 album by Cliff Richard. The album features three hit singles, including "Dreamin'" and "A Little in Love", which were top 20 hits in both the UK and the US. The album received positive reviews and kept Richard high in the charts during this, his revival period. It was also the last time he would appear in the US top 20. Album track "Give a Little Bit More", which was co-written by Andy Hill, who was about to become famous as writer and producer for Bucks Fizz, was released in some countries as a single, as was "In the Night" - although this wasn't the same as the Barbara Dickson song which was released around the time (and was also produced by Tarney). "Give a Little Bit More" gave Richard a third hit from the album in the US, peaking at #41.

Cleo Laine and James Galway have produced a wonderful album of songs in which there is not a single dud. The whole recording is brilliant, but there is a special place in our hearts for Skylark. Hoagy Carmichael's song has been sensitively arranged and performed by two of Britain's finest musicians. John Dankworth and the rest of the band complement them superbly. It is now approaching 40 years since it was recorded, and sounds as fresh as when it was made.

Maywood was a Dutch pop group in the 1970s and 1980s. Their biggest hit single was in 1980 with "Late At Night". They represented the Netherlands in the 1990 Eurovision Song Contest (Zagreb) with the song "Ik wil alles met je delen" (I Want to Share Everything With You), which finished in fifteenth place. The group split up in 1995, but re-formed for a series of concerts in October 2013. In 2000, female duo Maywood released "Late At Night/Different Worlds", which contained two albums - 1980's "Late at Night," and 1981's "Different Worlds" on two compact discs.

The 3rd Captain Sky record never manages to achieve liftoff. While previous efforts balanced the Captain's shameless P-Funk cops with some propulsive grooves and widescreen arrangements, "Concerned Party #1" simply goes through the motions, running on nothing but the vapors of a few witty puns (e.g., "Bubble Gum (I Chewz You)") and a handful of punishing bass grooves. Worse, the production breaks down under the weight of its painfully slick disco textures. A few cuts, like "Sir Jam a Lot," might get a less discerning dancefloor moving, but otherwise Concerned Party #1 falls completely flat.

This is the Messiah that started it all–the first period instrument performance recorded with a choir of men and boys. It introduced music lovers the world over to Christopher Hogwood, Emma Kirkby, and a whole host of performers who have since become ubiquitous as the "English Early Music Mafia," appearing as they do under zillions of different ensemble names on a variety of labels. Hogwood's performance still holds its own, however, as one of the finest and freshest available. A first-rate effort. –David Hurwitz
