Simply Red 's debut was probably pretty fresh in the mid-eighties, among all that overwhelming synth. This record, while it definitely sounds likeisn't all that clearly a "product of its time".

Their jazzy soul and soulful jazz has aged well. The orange-headed leading man Mick Hucknallwith his impressive vocal delivery is clearly the star of this record. But instead of just putting on a show of vocal acrobatics, the group plays together damn well and provide an ejoyable and consistent listen with nine solid, good songs.

They proved that synthpop can be soulful and funky. Mick Hucknall easily switches from brest to falsetto voice. Come to My Aid is an energetic, funky opener with heavy bass and percussion. Sad Old Red is jazzy with saxophones and a relaxed swing rhythm. Jericho has weird lyrics spoken by a rich person to a young protege, with obsessive repetition. Money's Too Tight To Mentiona cover from the Valentine Brothers, is about the recession in the eighties, a time of growing unemployment and Reaganomics.

Holding Back the Years is a painful ballad about regret and disappointment. This is a pop album without any fillers. December 29, Published December 29, by Ad-Vinylrecords with 0 comment. December 27, Published December 27, by Ad-Vinylrecords with 0 comment.

The best album since Sgt. Pepper is how Terence Trent D'Arby would describe his retro-soul arrival on the music scene. His arrogance would ultimately overshadow his accomplishments, but truth be told, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby 's only flaw is the ego of its composer. While his declaration may have been an overstatement that would play a major part in his undoing — TTD's debut is a near bullet-proof arrival, so strong, the arrogance of its creator need not be taken into consideration when appraising its merit.

This album is air tight. With his feet still firmly on the ground, D'Arby put together one of the greatest soul albums since the peak of classic Motown — Perhaps even stronger than the majority of albums released upon the single-focused Motown catalog.

Eleven tracks in length, TTD doesn't miss a beat in accomplishing a milestone of the soul genre. Top-notch songwriting, complimented by a voice with enough grit to cut glass, TTD accomplishes an album worthy of the praise that he is so eager to heap upon it. The single shot up the charts, landing in the top 10, and ultimately led to a million copies of Introducing sold within three days of its release. His refined vocal soars over the background singers promises of change.

I should have said that I love you And I should have said it from the heart. Eight and a half minutes in, with two tracks knocked out of the park, D'Arby could justifiably take a step back and allow other records to catch up. D'Arby drops in with a vocal smooth as melted butter. So soft, Smokey himself would be impressed with TTD's melodic flow. And get a haircut boy, if you want a chance in respectable society.

Soulful, romantic and poetic — this track will LP be a staple of easy listening radio. The song reaches an apex in the balladry of it's post-chorus bridge, where D'Arby raises the intensity of his longing, complete with doo-wop inspired shoo-doo-op bops. With each lyric delivered like a self-contained poem of love, TTD holds nothing back to win the object of his affection.

A hauntingly seductive single — 80's pop radio doesn't get much better than this. And he knew it; which is why he saved it for last. The album would be his creative and commercial peak, Love Of The Common People - Paul Young - No Parlez + The Secret Of Association (Vinyl again to be matched by his later efforts. Marred by the inevitable backlash over his controversial statements of self-praise, D'Arby's work, post Introducingwould be met with only marginal success.

His pretentious tendencies becoming more transparent with each subsequent record, TTD's next offerings would never live up to the promise of his stellar debut — But for one glorious year in the late 's, Terence Trent D'Arby's potential had no ceiling. The stage was set for D'Arby to carry the soul flag into the 90's alongside his new peers: Stevie, Michael and Prince. Unfortunately, lighting would not be bottled a second time. TTD could only maintain his greatness for one flawless, timeless record of introduction.

There is excellent variety on this album and the fact it all very well executed shows the competence of the musicians: they are top notch players. For example, a number of slower tracks feature really outstanding acoustic guitar work from Peter White. Elsewhere, the up tempo tracks are perfectly executed: the rhythm section chuggs along nicely right through this concert.

They are traditional Stewart compilations and are done quite well. The remaining tracks all live up to a quality live recording as well. Al Stewart wrote a lot of excellent, diverse, material in this era. Some were huge hits, others just good album material. Indian Summer brings it all together and it will make a great addition to your collection. December 26, Published December 26, by Ad-Vinylrecords with 0 comment. InPaul Young scored a couple of medium-sized U.

Inhowever, with his stellar album The Secret of Associationthe British singer gained his highest level of commercial success with several hit singles, most notably his chart-topping cover of Daryl Hall 's "Every Time You Go Away," which was miles better than the original. Featuring lush orchestration and Young 's signature, soulful vocals, this album remains the singer's best, and one of the better albums of the s.

Other notable tracks include his wicked take on "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down," the gorgeous "Everything Must Change" which almost sounds like a country songand the popular album tracks "Soldier's Things" and "Tomb of Memories.

Augmented by Pino Palladino's flashy yet imaginative basslines and Laurie Latham's kitchen sink production, this is a record that was fully deserving of its no. Though the second half is less exciting than the first and Young isn't much of a songwriter much of side two was co-written by himthis is still a very enjoyable, emotional rollercoaster ride of an album. Variety abounds, every song is different, meticulously arranged, overproduced to the extreme, but certainly never boring.

The macho, hyper-dynamic vocal deliveries by this vocal group bring smiles to the faces of even those who otherwise might bemoan disco.

Tempo doeloe is het tweede album van de Nederlandse muziekgroep Het Goede Doel.

Het album verscheen op elpee bij CNR Records in een tijdperk dat de compact disc in opkomst was toen circa 40 Nederlandse guldens kostend. Dat medium zag CNR Records, net als andere platenlabels niet direct zitten. Het album werd destijds aanbeden en verguisd; fans van de band vonden het album beter dan het vorige; de critici vonden het minder; de teksten zijn soms wat al te verbogen om de rijmen. In december bereikt de single "Eenvoud" de hitparade, als voorloper van het album Tempo Doeloe.

De single "Geboren Voor Het Geluk" brengt het niet verder dan een tipnotering. December 22, Published December 22, by Ad-Vinylrecords with 0 comment.

Wakeman performs with the London Symphony Orchestrathe English Chamber Choirand a group of hand-picked musicians for his rock band, which later became the English Rock Ensemble.

Eric Generic likes this. It's a shame the No Parlez reissue wasn't very interesting, compared to the ones for his 2nd, 3rd and 4th albums where you got plenty of B-sides and mixes.

Eric GenericNov 30, Disco Blister likes this. Everything Must Change was one of the first singles I bought. The only one in fact from him. CatastropheBoyNov 30, Vasilios and Eric Generic like this. The 93 album has some bops. VasiliosNov 30, New one on me, thanks Eric. Any recommendations for a CD version - what's the closest approximation to the original vinyl?

What a great song. Batshit choice for a single in its album mix, though - come on, Mr Producer, bring the drums in! Consistent body of work, with Other Voices best for me, great songs and class production. BlaahhDec 1, Post a Comment. December 26, Published December 26, by Ad-Vinylrecords with 0 comment.
