J.D. Brennan & Gold Fever with the Summer Street Gospel Group – “A Better Way / Driftin’ Away”

J.D. Brennan & Gold Fever with the Summer Street Gospel Group – “A Better Way / Driftin’ Away”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I think I got this one for the van on the cover, and the fact it says ‘Gospel’ – but it really isn’t gospel.  So, the A-Side opens with “A Better Way” – and it’s a pretty rusty sounding bluesy Gospel track, the vocals are alright, and...

Kate Bush – “Babooshka / Ran Tan Waltz”

Kate Bush – “Babooshka / Ran Tan Waltz”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Kate Bush’s “Babooshka” is one of the few Kate Bush songs I like. I love it for how artistic it is.

Claude François – “Petite Mèche De Cheveux”

Claude François – “Petite Mèche De Cheveux”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So Claude François was almost like Elvis but in France.

Joe Dolce – “Shaddap You Face / Ain’t in No Hurry”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Time to take a nostalgia trip back to my childhood, I remember when I was really young this song would come on the radio and my mother and I would always sing along together. Good times.  So, the A-Side is “Shaddap You Face” and well, it has... Read More »

Carl Lewis – “Break It Up / Quebra La”

Carl Lewis – “Break It Up / Quebra La”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Basically, a long time ago, long before other certain former Olympic gold medalists were all over the news, Carl Lewis was one of the big shots.

Band Aid – “Do They Know It’s Christmas? / Feed the World”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “Many thanks to all the fine artists who kindly donated their time and effort in the making of this record” Personal Review:  Bob Geldof’s wonderfully produced Christmas song for Ethiopia.  The song opens with that drum noise thing, and then Paul Young singing, I like Paul Young, but why Bob...

The Germs – “(GI): Manimal / Dragon Lady / Strange Notes”

The Germs – “(GI): Manimal / Dragon Lady / Strange Notes”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, December 8th will be 34 years and 1 day since Darby overdosed on Heroin, on the eve of John Lennon’s assassination, gaining no media attention whatsoever except a little article in the obituary section of the local newspaper. Darby Crash however to me will always be... Read More »
