This "two-fer" couples two of the very best examples of the "New Conniff" sound of the seventies and early eighties that provided masterful rearrangements of popular hits of the time. Following on the heels of the breakthrough Conniff LP, "Theme From the Godfather…," "I Can See Clearly Now" was a new classic for Conniff. It firmly established the "sound," and other highly successful, and eminently listenable LPs followed. As a single continually played on radios across the world, "Harmony" was a logical partner for this reissue. These two CDs reflect Conniff "as good as it gets!"
2012 collection from the R&B trio. They emerged from the late '70s Disco boom and helped define the '80s with a string of dance floor hits, innovative dance moves (they introduced the UK to body-popping) and trend setting 'wedge' hairstyles. This collection includes their four UK Top 10 hits ('I Can Make You Feel Good', 'A Night to Remember', 'There It Is' and 'Dead Giveaway') plus a further seven UK top 40 classics.
Songwriter Gus Kahn gets the Hollywood treatment. The film chronicles his success and decline, with his wife Grace sticking by him the whole time.
Guitar wizards John Scofield and Pat Metheny have consistently made commercially successful, accessible music while remaining true to their improvisational leanings. It's no surprise that their collaboration sounds so relaxed, fluid, and musically serene. Listeners shouldn't necessarily expect a series of slashing duels, but it's certainly not vapid new age or retrograde fusion. Scofield and Metheny divide compositional duties and play masterful, expressive solos. Guitar fans will be especially impressed with the mastering, which makes Scofield and Metheny's guitars sound right in the room.
As Far As I Can See… is the fourth studio album by the British rock band the Zombies, and their first since 1991. Billed as "The Zombies" but it's actually Blunstone and Argent again. Joining Blunstone and Argent in the studio for As Far As I Can See… was a band that consisted of longtime friend Jim Rodford, his son Steve, and guitarist Keith Airey. Original Zombie member Chris White contributed also background vocals and Paul Atkinson championed the album shortly before his death from liver and kidney.
