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. At the height of his Olympic career, he decided to do an anthem for himself… this is it.  The A-Side is... Read More »

Jiří Korn – “Magic Jet”

Jiří Korn – “Magic Jet”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I don’t even know where this record came from.  The album opens with “Someone Else is On the Line” (“S Kým Teď Právě Hovor Máš“) and well, that instrument opening is rather weird, then Jiří begins to sing, and it’s definitely different, the chorus comes around and hey, it’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”...

Donna Summer – “A Love Trilogy”

Donna Summer – “A Love Trilogy”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Donna Summer had a few good hits back in her hay-day, she was kinda the Queen of Disco – then the 80’s came, she got all that bad publicity about some homophobic comments, but we’re not going to divulge into that. Anyways, here we go.  The A-Side... Read More »

Love & Kisses – “How Much, How Much I Love You”

Love & Kisses – “How Much, How Much I Love You”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Gonna be really honest, I bought this album solely for the cover – not knowing exactly what the music would be like, I just really liked the album cover.  The A-Side is “How Much, How Much I Love You” – and it’s a 17 minute disco track,...

Andy Gibb – “Shadow Dancing”

Andy Gibb – “Shadow Dancing”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So, the past few record hauls I’ve done, I’ve picked up every Andy Gibb LP I’ve found, I’ve always seen them, know his history, and love the work of the Bee Gees, so hey, why not? The album opens with the track “Shadow Dancing” – and it’s... Read More »

Francis Lai – “International Velvet: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”

Francis Lai – “International Velvet: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “Composers, like authors, are probably the most anonymous manipulators of public taste. We read or listen to their work, allow them to mould our thoughts and attitudes, and yet for the most part we are unaware of their personalities. Thus, when a film director is faced with the decision... Read More »
