Graham Bonnet is considered one of the finest Rock vocalists of his generation. Beginning his career in the sixties Graham was one half of the pop duo The Marbles who scored a worldwide hit single with the Bee Gees written song Only One Woman. Following on from the Marbles Graham embarked on a solo career in the seventies and was one of the first signings to former Beatle Ringo Starr's record label Ringo records. Following one self titled album Graham was approached to replace Ronnie James Dio in Rainbow. Graham featured on the album Down To Earth and also the hit singles Since You've Been Gone and All Night Long before he left Rainbow in late 1980 following Rainbow's performance at the first Monsters of Rock festival at Donnington.

This has the look of a career-making recording from Scots violinist Nicola Benedetti, putting her up against difficult repertory that diverges from the crowd-pleasing fare that formed the basis of her career up to this album. It would have been hard to predict just how well she pulls off her task here; few could have heard the profound interpreter of Russian music in the Italia and Silver Violin collections from earlier in the 2010s. The Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1, Op. 99, is an emotionally thorny work in five movements anchored by a tense passacaglia in the middle. The composer withheld it from publication during the period of renewed Stalinist repression in the late 1940s. It was premiered in 1955 by David Oistrakh, and in endurance and elevated tone even if not quite in lyrical grandeur, Benedetti brings that master to mind. Sample the Stravinskian "Burlesque" finale for a sense of how Benedetti gets outside herself here. The Glazunov Violin Concerto, Op. 82, is a more stable work, rooted in pre-WWI conservatory traditions, and Benedetti's reading is nothing short of letter-perfect.

"Be My Lover" is the third studio album by R&B singer O'Bryan. It was O'Bryan's highest charting collection on the Billboard R&B Albums charts, peaking at #3. The first single - the insistent, chugging "Lovelite" - marched to the top of the Billboard R&B Singles chart. The success of "Lovelite" prompted Capitol to release "Breakin' Together" as the next single. But it was O'Bryan's penchant for ballads - the quiet storm staple "Lady I Love You;" the lovelorn "You’re Always On My Mind;" and "Go On And Cry," which was the third single - that shone as the album’s highlights. The title track also became known as one of O'Bryan's better uptempo songs.

This release by hard rock favorites UFO is actually a two-disc set. The first disc consists of new material while disc two is a live album. The new studio material finds many of the old UFO sounds and trademarks, but is perhaps a bit rawer, both in terms of production and performance. In many ways, the new tracks feel a lot like they might have been leftovers from the previous CD, the brilliant Walk on Water. This one should certainly please longtime fans of the band, but probably is not a good introduction to the group. The lineup this time out is veteran drummer Aynsley Dunbar, guitar hero Michael Schenker, and vocalist Phil Mogg.

Fatback's second album of 1975 is a serious improvement over Yum Yum: the arrangements are tighter, the hooks are stronger, and the grooves keep the listener riveted from start to finish. It downplays the live feel of previous albums like Keep on Steppin' in favor of a more carefully arranged feel that highlights the tasty keyboard and synthesizer work of Gerry Thomas. Raising Hell also produced two major hits for the group: "(Are You Ready) Do the Bus Stop" capitalizes on the dance craze of the title with a steady bass-driven groove that works in layers of keyboards, guitars, and horns to keep things interesting, and "Spanish Hustle" is a propulsive dance jam that alternates synthesizer flights of fancy with intense Latin percussion breaks guaranteed to make the listeners shake their hips.

Although ELO quickly became Jeff Lynne's baby, it was launched as a collaboration between Lynne and his bandmates in the Move, multi-instrumentalist Roy Wood, and drummer Bev Bevan. Indeed, the label on ELO's first album reads "Move Enterprises Ltd. presents the services of the Electric Light Orchestra," and most histories claim that the initial idea for the spin-off group combining rock and classical music was Wood's, not Lynne's. Wood and Lynne split the songwriting duties on Electric Light Orchestra, much as they did on late-period Move albums, but it seems like their visions of what ELO was were widely divergent. Wood's songs are clearly more classically influenced, with the string and horn sections driving the songs rather than merely coloring them, as they do on Lynne's tunes.

The pairing of Francis Poulenc and Reynaldo Hahn on this album may seem contrived merely because of biographical parallels between the two men, for their musical approaches and styles are quite different, if not at odds. Poulenc's neo-Classical, self-conscious parodies in the Sinfonietta and the dry, sarcastic wit of the Aubade are a world away from Hahn's pretty, even precious, Romanticism, which is unabashedly on display in La bal de Béatrice d'Este. However, the discerning listener may find in Poulenc streaks of Hahn's pensiveness and languor, which his comic antics never completely conceal; there is in Hahn a buoyant, diatonic tunefulness that is readily found in Poulenc. (Interestingly, some of Poulenc's adaptations of Renaissance music bear a remarkable similarity to Hahn's antique pastiches in this ballet.) Furthermore, their fondness for unusual chamber combinations is striking, and the transition from the Aubade to La bal de Béatrice d'Este is not at all jarring because they both share the charm and ambience of the salon orchestra.

Brown is also one of the most influential vocalists among reggae musicians and was noted to be Bob Marley’s favorite singer. His iconic status and pivotal place in the history of reggae music is highlighted by the range of contemporary artists and power in the musical selections on the album. The album blends romantic love songs and ballads with roots and revolutionary songs made famous and (mostly) written by Brown. Dennis Brown was a spokesman for the people of Jamaica and the diaspora and his message is a vital today as when these songs were first recorded. His voice and his music are with us and we remember Dennis Brown.

Building on the success of their 2015 debut, Baptized In The Rio Grande, and two years of backbreaking cross-country tours, Sons Of Texas set out to stake a claim in the increasingly clustered arena of mainstream hard rock. Straight from the top, their sophomore outing opens with a fast-paced onslaught of taut, scorching riffage and storming tempos, with Feed The Need and Down In The Trenches showcasing a penchant for muscular hooks and big melodic choruses. Forged By Fortitude doesn’t lack might or swagger but it does fall well short of establishing a distinctly original sound. The middle of the album spirals into a punchy mid-tempo morass of generic, guitar-driven post-grunge, although the shout-out fervour of Slam With The Lights On closes the album on a high note. Though undeniably well-crafted, Forged By Fortitude plays it far too safely to mark the band’s breakout moment.

"Friends in Love" is Dionne Warwick's 3rd studio album for the Arista label. It was recorded during the winter of 1981-1982 and was released that spring on April 14, 1982. The LP was originally issued as number AL 9585 in the Arista Catalog. The album rose to #87 on the Billboard album chart, selling approximately 200,000 US copies. Songs on the album include the title track, a duet with singer Johnny Mathis, which made the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at #38, in addition to charting on the Billboard R&B and adult contemporary charts at #22 and #5, respectively. A follow-up single, "For You", peaked at #14 on the Adult Contemporary chart. This album also contains the Cynthia Weil / Barry Mann song "Never Gonna Let You Go", which would become a hit the following year for Brazilian musician Sérgio Mendes.

"Every Song Has Its Play" is an Irish-English singer-songwriter Gilbert O’Sullivan’s 12th studio album, originally released in May 1995. The 14 tracks included in this album are soundtrack from his semi-autobiographical musical "Every Song Has its Play" and it is one of O'Sullivan's best albums released in the 90s alonside "Sounds of the Loop". It includes the wonderfully humourous and gentle hit song "Dear Dream" and heart-achingly poignant but beautiful songs like "I wish I could cry", "Pretty Polly", "Can't find my way home", and "You don't own me" which reflect his struggle as a young artist and his painful experience through the legal battle in the 70s. It is remarkabke even his most painful experience has become a source of inspiration for his songs and he could voice the bane and sorrow of the show-business with such honesty and humanity that it touches anyone who listens to this album.
