Collection of the finest work of the Algerian/French ensemble Djur Djura, compiled by David Byrne. The group's founder and focal point is Algerian-born vocalist Djura. Djura's music blends twining layers of vocals over flashing percussion and a blend of Eastern and Western instruments. Her words offer a profoundly emotional message of awareness and hope.
Although Cocker's Capitol material wasn't as consistent as his A&M work, this compilation successfully distills the highlights, including the splendid "When the Night Comes," onto a single CD.
Love of My Life: The Best of Dan Hill collection focuses on the singer's chart entries from the '70s and '80s along with superior album cuts.

Carly Simon was among the pop royalty of the singer/songwriter era of the early '70s. This album collects her most popular songs of the first five years of her solo career. Opening with the powerful "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," for which Simon received the 1971 Best New Artist Grammy Award, it includes four tunes from the classic No Secrets album, including the number one hit "You're So Vain."
1995 anthology, originally released to coincide with the release of the four disc box set Thrill Of It All. Roxy Music began life as a British Art Rock band in the early '70s but by the time they split a decade later, they had matured into a smooth Rock outfit capable of creating some of the most lush, romantic and beautiful music on the Pop charts. Lead vocalist Bryan Ferry carried on the Roxy tradition on his solo albums recorded during and after the band's original 10 year career.
