Winner of Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby" (1968) has been given a complete makeover and the final result is indeed mighty impressive. Shortly after they move into their new apartment, Rosemary (Mia Farrow, High Heels, The Great Gatsby) and Guy (John Cassavetes, Machine Gun McCain, Opening Night) begin talking about having a baby. They both want one. But is this the right time? Guy does not think so. First he needs to get that great acting job he has been dreaming about; then he could become a father. Rosemary wants a baby now but is willing to wait. Good wives need to support their husbands and this is precisely what she intends to do. When the time is right, Guy will let her know.
Mighty Baby are one of the best-loved bands to have emerged from Britain's late 1960s underground, and this is the fullest live record of them in existence. Taped as they opened for Quintessence at Malvern's Winter Gardens on February 20th, 1971, the set finds the quintet poised between the driving psychedelia of their 1969 debut and the more contemplative sound of their second and final album, A Jug Of Love (SBR 5026CD/LP). It's rounded off by two bonus tracks recorded at Glastonbury in June of the same year, and comes complete with a booklet featuring rare images and notes from band members Ian Whiteman and Mike Evans, making it an essential artefact for the Babe's many admirers.
Iconic singer/songwriter and musical wanderer who rose to prominence during the '60s folk revival and changed the world of music. Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock…
Switching to Arista Records in the U.S., Eurythmics made their last album together with We Too Are One, and they went out in style. Calling upon a broad pop range, their seventh album was their best since Be Yourself Tonight in 1985. The sound was varied, the melodies were strong, and the lyrics were unusually well-crafted. In retrospect, the album can be seen as a dry run for Annie Lennox's debut solo album, Diva (1992); songs like "Don't Ask Me Why" (which grazed the U.S. Top 40) serve as precursors to the dramatic ballads to come. There is, however, an air of romantic resignation throughout We Too Are One, appropriate to its valedictory nature. The disc spawned four chart singles in the U.K. and returned Eurythmics to number one in the album charts, but it did not substantially improve Eurythmics' reduced commercial standing in the U.S., confirming that it was time for Lennox and Dave Stewart to pursue other opportunities.
