Ian Gillan's final solo outing before his second comeback with Deep Purple is possibly the singer's most rocking solo collection. Originally a European release, Toolbox finally appeared in North American record stores in 1997. The disc is hampered by its '80s production (complete with faux-Van Halen guitar licks and big reverb drum sounds) but Gillan's personality and dynamic performances preserve Toolbox's sharp rock & roll edge. Tracks like "Candy Horizon" and "Don't Hold Me Back" have more than their share of questionable lyrics, but Gillan's trademark screams easily overshadow any poetic shortcomings. Nothing can compare to the classic recordings Gillan was involved with in the early '70s, but among his second-tier offerings, Toolbox is definitely one of the best.

A mature, musical and individual collection from David Knopfler. His strong, sometimes aggressive, sometimes soothing, always effective vocals really come into their own here. The soulful, spiritual feel to tracks like "Dream so Strong" and "I Will Always Be" balance the raw, raunchy aggression of "What Do Men Want," making this an album for everyone's collection.

This import, three-CD box set collects Black Sabbath's first six albums in near-entirety, excising a few lesser tracks and shorter instrumental pieces like "Laguna Sunrise," the only track from We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll not present ("Children of the Grave" is here, but mistitled "Embryo," which is actually its instrumental introduction). The tracks are ordered chronologically, often in their original LP sequence. It isn't as necessary to hear Sabbath's albums in their original forms as, for example, Led Zeppelin's, so if you can find it, this set is a less expensive (and definitive) way to acquire all of Black Sabbath's worthwhile material at once.

The Best of Rockers & Ballads is an adequate overview of Roger Daltrey's solo offerings of the 1970s, taking the best work from his rather inconsistent career as a musician outside of the Who. Although his albums didn't achieve the prosperity that he and the rest of his fans might have expected, some of his material fit in quite nicely with the singer/songwriter formula of the decade. The 17 tracks are taken mainly from his self-titled debut album, 1975's Ride a Rock Horse, and 1977's One of the Boys. And, as this collection illustrates, most of Daltrey's better songs are ones that have been written by other artists. Murray Head's "Say It Ain't So Joe" and Russ Ballard's "Free Me" are two of his most passionate efforts, while both of the Leo Sayer-penned tracks, "It's a Hard Life" and "Giving It All Away," spotlight Daltrey's vocal strength. "Without Your Love" is the most beautiful ballad of the set, and represents his only Top 40 hit, going to number 20 in 1980. Average sounding rockers like "Walking the Dog" and "One of the Boys" are energetic enough, but they don't instill the enthusiasm that Roger Daltrey is capable of. Other compilations that are available offer up most of these songs, but add his more solid post-1980 contributions from Under a Raging Moon and a few of the better cuts from the disastrous Can't Wait to See the Movie and the Parting Should Be Painless album. Even so, Best of Rockers & Ballads is more of an entertaining listen (and more of a convenience) than embarking on Daltrey's solo albums.

This is a true classic. Altoist Art Pepper is joined by an 11-piece band playing Marty Paich arrangements of a dozen jazz standards from the bop and cool jazz era. Trumpeter Jack Sheldon has a few solos, but the focus is very much on the altoist who is in peak form for this period…

Long after Bob Marley's death from cancer in 1981 and Peter Tosh's murder in 1988, members of Marley's band continued to record under the name the Wailers Band. On 1991's Majestic Warriors, some of the key players include lead singer/guitarist Junior Marvin and bassist Aston "Family Man" Barrett. Marley fans couldn't help but wonder if Majestic Warriors would sound anything like his classic albums of the '60s and '70s but, in fact, enjoyable selections like "Sweet Cry Freedom," "Bad Mind People," and "Trip" are notably slicker and more produced than anything you'll find on Natty Dread, Catch a Fire, or Exodus. Though one of its highlights is a likable cover of Marley's 1980 hit "Could You Be Loved," the CD on the whole isn't as Marley-sounding as one might expect. This decent but rather uneven album does have its moments…

Volume 2 of Connoisseur Collection's 2 part series on Ritchie Blackmore's overall career. Where Volume 1 focused largely on Blackmore's '60s sessions and his Purple work from 1968 to 1974, Volume 2 is more of a grab bag which has a lot of variety. Originally intended mostly to cover the period from 1975 (Rainbow's formation) onwards, it actually covers from 1965 to 1984 with several memorable pit-stops in between. This great CD is bolstered by great liner notes and great pictures, including some magazine covers quite rare to find anywhere else. Anyone remotely interested in the heights to which Blackmore can reach will be rewarded here.

With the future of the original Alice Cooper band in doubt by mid-1974 (they would soon break up for good with Alice going solo), Warner Bros. decided to issue a best-of compilation entitled Greatest Hits. If you're a newcomer to Alice, this 12-track compilation is a must-hear – all the selections are exceptional. While many have chosen to focus primarily on Cooper's theatrics over the years, the original bandmembers were indeed supreme rock songwriters; such anthems as "I'm Eighteen," "Under My Wheels," "School's Out," and "No More Mr. Nice Guy" are unquestionably among the finest hard rock tracks of all time. And the other selections prove to be just as strong – "Is It My Body," "Desperado," "Be My Lover," "Elected," "Billion Dollar Babies," and "Muscle of Love" are all outstanding as well. The only criticism of the original release is that the collection overlooked the band's key album tracks never issued as singles.

When he wasn't busy siring progeny (the Neal household produced ten kids, most of them seemingly now playing the blues), Raful Neal was staking his claim as one of the top harpists on the Baton Rouge blues front. Unfortunately, until recently, his discography didn't reflect that status - but albums for Alligator and Ichiban have righted that injustice.
Neal wrote the majority of the sides on this satisfying disc himself. His supple band includes two sons, Raful, Jr. on guitar and Noel on bass, and Lucky Peterson on keys.

Auberge is the eleventh studio album by Chris Rea, released in 1991. Auberge was a #1 album in the UK in 1991. The title track also gave Rea one of his biggest chart hits, reaching #16 in the UK charts. Other songs released as singles were "Heaven", "Looking For The Summer" and "Winter Song". Another song, "And You My Love", although not released as a single, has become a firm favourite among his fans and is regularly performed at live concerts.

Glenn Miller's reign as the most popular bandleader in the U.S. came relatively late in his career and was relatively brief, lasting only about three and a half years, from the spring of 1939 to the fall of 1942. But during that period he utterly dominated popular music, and over time he has proven the most enduring figure of the swing era, with reissues of his recordings achieving gold record status 40 years after his death. Miller developed a distinctive sound in which a high-pitched clarinet carried the melody, doubled by a saxophone section playing an octave lower, and he used that sound to produce a series of hits that remain definitive examples of swing music.
