Charlie was a British rock band that was formed in 1971 by singer/songwriter Terry Thomas and they released four albums in their career up to 1986. They toured extensively in America and the UK supporting amongst others Fleetwood Mac, The Kinks, The Doobie Brothers, And Alice Cooper. Charlie were an ‘almost’ band, had strong critical reviews, and radio friendly hits including ‘Men without Hats’. But a combination of bad management and record company indifference, meant they never actually made the Top 100.
Influenced by artists ranging from Anthrax to the Beastie Boys to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Scatterbrain made some noteworthy contributions to alternative rock in the early 1990s. Although rap is an influence on this little known band, Here Comes Trouble has a lot more to offer from a rock standpoint than from a funk standpoint. (…) But for all its quirkiness, this is a band that most definitely rocks with aggression.
Bad Company was a British blues-rock supergroup formed in 1973 featuring members of Free (Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke), Mott the Hoople (Mick Ralphs) and King Crimson (Boz Burrell).Their eponymous debut album was released in 1974 and was an immediate hit, promoted by the singles "Can't Get Enough" and ""Movin' On". They repeated this success the following year with Straight Shooter which spawned the singles "Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Feel Like Makin' Love". The albums they released during this incarnation of the band peaked with the platinum-selling Run with the Pack but began to decline.
Taped May 15, 2016 at Red Rocks Amphitheater In Colorado, The Legendary Classic Rock Band delivers it's biggest hits. The quality of the music on this CD/DVD set is not in question. The band sounds as good as they always do, and this set includes "Crazy Circles," a first for a Bad Company live disc.
Another typically wonderful LP of Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Fitzgerald is joined by pianist Lou Levy, guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Joe Mondragon, and drummer Stan Levey. Fitzgerald is in fine form on such numbers as "A Night in Tunisia," an emotional "You're My Thrill," "Jersey Bounce," and "Clap Hands! Here Comes Charlie." Although not reaching the heights of her live performances, this is an excellent (and somewhat underrated) set.
