Debbie Harry – “Rush Rush (Special Extended Remix)”

Debbie Harry – “Rush Rush (Special Extended Remix)”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So basically, everyone knows this song from two places, the first and most primary being the soundtrack to the 1983 film, “Scarface” – the second, where I first (and most people my age) heard the song was the video game Grand Theft Auto III, which featured almost...

Richard Patterson – “Richard Patterson Sings ‘I Won’t Need a Wheelchair in Glory’”

Richard Patterson – “Richard Patterson Sings ‘I Won’t Need a Wheelchair in Glory’”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “You will find this album a bit different from those we have previously produced at Lakewood Enterprises, and you may find that it sounds, in many ways, like country music. However, let me assure you that it is gospel all the way.  To RICHARD PATTERSON, gospel music is a way... Read More »

Furr – “Furr”

Furr – “Furr”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So, Furr is basically a cheap Kiss rip-off. The album opens with the track “Sorcery” – and well, the vocals are okay, the guy kind of can’t sing very well. Then again, my copy is slightly dished, so it plays a little wobbly at first, but the... Read More »

The Models – “Models”

The Models – “Models”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: I know nothing about this band, except their Canadian, from Edmonton Alberta and that like, there’s a wet girl on the cover. So, the album immediately opens with “Did It Well” – which, may I say has some pretty great musicianship, and like the lyrics are pretty... Read More »

Each group has proven themselves to be... Read More »

Bee Gees – “Cucumber Castle”

Bee Gees – “Cucumber Castle”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: I like the cover. I like the Bee Gees. “If Only I Had My Mind on Something Else” opens the album, and it’s not a bad track. It’s pretty good, the vocals are pretty strong, who knew that this album would open the world of... Read More »

The Blind Slye Twins – “It’s Me Again Lord”

The Blind Slye Twins – “It’s Me Again Lord”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “Singing plays a big part in Evangelism – in attracting people – in setting the mood and pace of every Service – In preparing men`s hearts to a decision of Christ – in stirring people to climb to new heights of service. Judy and Barbara Slye literally fill a church... Read More »

Donovan – “Donovan’s Greatest Hits”

Donovan – “Donovan’s Greatest Hits”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So, this is like 60’s psychedelic folk. Donovan’s greatest hits. The A-Side opens with the track “Epistle to Dippy” – which is a pretty good track, the musicianship is pretty good and it’s not really an album I could complain about, Donovan is pretty good....

John Arpin – “Direct-to-Disc”

John Arpin – “Direct-to-Disc”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “This direct-to-disc recording features the talented Canadian pianist, John Arpin in a performance of popular favourites. Two steps are eliminated in the recording process, (a) the recording to multiple tape tracks, e.g. 8 or 16 tracks, (b) the mixdown from the multiple tracks to regular stereo or two track tape....

The Boomtown Rats – “In the Long Grass”

The Boomtown Rats – “In the Long Grass”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: Bob Geldof is genius. Enough said. The album opens with the track “A Hold of Me” – which is an amazing track and you could solely base a whole album off of it. The Rats definitely have the chemistry together that not a lot of musicians can... Read More »
