Richard Simmons – “Reach”

Richard Simmons – “Reach”The Sleeve: Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  With all this hoopla going on with Richard Simmons’ being apparently held ‘hostage’ by his housekeeper, but I’m not here to discuss that. I’m here to discuss the record of Richard Simmons.  So, this LP is supposed to come with a Exercise Book, I guess to... Read More »

Meat Loaf – “Bat Out of Hell”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None.

Champion – “Champion”

Champion – “Champion”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, I don’t remember why I bought this record, but it was most likely for the bowl of cornflakes on the cover, or the fact they’re eating cornflakes on the back cover.  The album opes with the song “I’d Lie to You for Your Love (And That’s...

Desmond Child & Rouge – “Desmond Child & Rouge”

Desmond Child & Rouge – “Desmond Child & Rouge”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Now this is a band I bought because I know *one* of their songs from the 1979 film, “The Warriors” and figured, well if I like that one song, why not buy a whole album of their songs?  The album opens with the song “Westside Pow Wow”...

Fotomaker – “Vis-a-Vis”

Fotomaker – “Vis-a-Vis”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Firstly, can we talk about how lost Gene and Lex look on the back cover? Or how Wally looks like Steven Tyler with no make-up on? I’m not even sure about the cover.  Anywho, the album opens with the track “Miles Away” and you know what? It... Read More »

Little River Band – “First Under the Wire”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None.

Norman Nardini – “Love Dog” 

Norman Nardini – “Love Dog” The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “I smell a hit!” Personal Review: Well, the song opens with a whole lot of dogs barking – and it’s definitely some Southern Rock here, it’s not that bad either. The lyrics aren’t the best, considering Norman is literally just singing “bow wow wow wow” – the musicianship however, is... Read More »

REO Speedwagon – “The Hits”

REO Speedwagon – “The Hits”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: REO Speedwagon’s hits – you know this is going to be a great album, filled with break-up tracks (among other things). So, let’s go!
