Kylie Minogue – “Wouldn’t Change a Thing / It’s No Secret”

Kylie Minogue – “Wouldn’t Change a Thing / It’s No Secret”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Long before Kylie Minogue hit American charts with such songs as “Can’t Get You Outta My Head”, she recorded this little single at the age of 21, and well… I thought she was like 14 on the cover. Anyway.  The A Side is the track “Wouldn’t Change A... Read More »

Sheena Easton – “For Your Eyes Only / For Your Eyes Only (Instrumental)”

Sheena Easton – “For Your Eyes Only / For Your Eyes Only (Instrumental)”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  To me, this is Sheena Easton’s greatest song ever.  The A-Side is the vocal version, and well, it’s pretty great. The piano playing, her vocals, everything about this song is absolutely fantastic, you would never even believe that this is the theme from a James Bond movie,... Read More »

Claude Scott – “The Edmonton Oilers Theme Song / The Color of Fire”

Claude Scott – “The Edmonton Oilers Theme Song / The Color of Fire”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  This 45 came in a big box of records my landlord had given me.  The A-Side is the theme from the Hockey team ‘Edmonton Oilers’, so therefore, the title is “The Edmonton Oilers Theme” – and well, it’s definitely a late 70’s – early 80’s sound. It’s... Read More »

Dave – “À L’Olympia”

Dave – “À L’Olympia”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Dave. French singer, and um, I really don’t know much about Dave or his career, I only bought the album for the dog on the cover swimming, ’cause it makes the cover cool.

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...

Anyways, Adele is basically one of the greatest... Read More »

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.

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.
