Holy Cow – Four Big Hits

Holy Cow – Four Big HitsThe Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Flipping through a record bin, and you stop you a cover with a redneck, a guy who looks like he could costar along Bronson Pinchot in “Perfect Strangers” and then Marv from “Home Alone” – are you really going to pass that up? The bands name is... Read More »

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. He wrote the original French version of the song “My Way” (“Comme D’Habitude“) and ultimately died after trying to change a light bulb in the shower.  The A-Side of this EP opens with “Maman Chérie” and despite being...

Roman Holliday – “Roman Holliday”

Roman Holliday – “Roman Holliday”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, I don’t know, I really liked the sailor hats.  So, the album opens with the song “Stand By” and there has never been a record that has sounded more 80’s than this album, the instrumentals, the vocals, the lyrics, it’s all way too 80’s. It’s different,... Read More »

Welcome Home – “Ladies and Gentlemen… Welcome Home”

Welcome Home – “Ladies and Gentlemen… Welcome Home”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  To be completely fair, I bought this album due to the guy on right on the back cover looking like Dana Carvey.  So, the album opens with “Radio Active Love” and well, I’m not saying the singing is good, but it’s also not bad. I just have... Read More »

Ryan Adams – “1984”

Ryan Adams – “1984”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: Personal Review:  So, to be quite honest, I do not know much about Ryan Adams – I liked the fact that this was a full length 7″ EP – and that it is titled ‘1984’ – I also hear Ryan changes his persona quite often. So, that’s kinda neat!  So,... Read More »

Pretenders – “Extended Play”

Pretenders – “Extended Play”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, I know of the Pretenders for basically one song – and that song is this. So, here is to broadening my Pretenders song knowledge!  I, of course, naturally chose an EP to start my introduction to this band, as I’ve had bad experiences in the past.... Read More »

Images in Vogue – “Rituals”

Images in Vogue – “Rituals”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So, this is one of those odd one of a kind albums, where the A-Side has one song, and the B-Side has more – yes I know it’s an EP. Seems Images in Vogue liking doing this. The A-Side opens and closes with the song “Rescue Me”... Read More »

Sharifah Noor & Orkes Zindegi – “Djauh”

Sharifah Noor & Orkes Zindegi – “Djauh”The Sleeve:   The Liner / Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: Sharifah Noor, the blind Malay diva. Honestly, she’s great. The EP opens with the track “Djauh” which just so happens to be my favorite Sharifah track! I don’t have much of a clue as to what is being said, (but that is why I... Read More »

Ellya M. Harris – “Selamat Jalan”

Ellya M. Harris – “Selamat Jalan”The Sleeve:   The Liner / Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: Okay, so firstly let me jump right in by saying I have no idea what is going on on this record. It’s in a language I don’t speak, or read and Google translate is useless. Anyways, here we go. The EP opens with the... Read More »
