Little Richard – “Little Richard Live! 10 Super Hits”

Little Richard – “Little Richard Live! 10 Super Hits”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Is it honestly necessary to write an intro to a Little Richard album? The coolest part, the label it’s on, was bought by K-Tel.  So, the album opens with the song “Lucille” and Little Richard kicks it off with some wicked piano playing, and his his fantastic...

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 »

Hiding Out: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

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 »

Dick Jensen – “Giant of Hawaii”

Dick Jensen – “Giant of Hawaii”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: To start let me say that I know very little about Dick Jensen, and that I had bought the album solely for the fact it’s signed and titled “The Giant of Hawaii” (Apparently 6ft is giant in Hawaii.) Anyways, Dick has some acting credits to his name,... Read More »

Isaac Hayes – “Theme from Shaft / Cafe Regio’s”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So, Isaac Hayes. Shaft Theme. Oh baby. Bring… it… ON! For those of you who are too young to know who Isaac Hayes was, he was also the voice of Chef on “South Park” (but who cares about that?) Anyways, “Who’s the black private dick? SHAFT!...

Elizabeth Barraclough – “Elizabeth Barraclough”

Elizabeth Barraclough – “Elizabeth Barraclough”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “Elizabeth’s voice was coming to me in Nashville over the phone from Woodstock… Butter and The Nashville Pickers setting her off just right… Building the intensity, letting it fly high, bringing it down to reality… Then Elizabeth took over, making the song her own. Then is was dance time, rock... Read More »
