14 songs covering the biggest Commodores material with Lionel Richie. It's a good single-disc package, although most of Motown's CDs in the late '70s and early '80s had very uneven sound. There's also a Commodores greatest hits album that came out in 1981 and a 14 greatest hits album that came out overseas a year after this one.

Suspicion is the title of an American television mystery drama series which aired on the NBC from 1957 through 1959. The executive producer of Suspicion was film director Alfred Hitchcock. The program was hosted by actor Dennis O'Keefe from 1957 through 1958. In 1959, Walter Abel became the host.

These recordings from 1957 are among the most momentous to appear in the Rudy Van Gelder series, marking the first American appearance on CD of these early live recordings and adding four previously unreleased tracks. Accompanied by his regular band of guitarist Eddie McFadden and drummer Donald Bailey, Smith is an extraordinary musical presence, combining the energy of a big band and a sanctified congregation as he serves up kinetic versions of pop songs, jazz standards, and blues. ~ Amazon
This album, released in 1993, is a gorgeous collection of the worlds greatest standards. "Speak Low" isn't a standard, really, it's a Broadway tune also recorded and released in '93 by Barbra Streisand. Same song, really different versions. Tom Scott did one hell of a production job on this release. Diane is bathed in strings, each ballad carefully arranged, Jeremy Lubbock appears here to meld electronics with strings, as he does, and it works well without sounding too dated. The opening track. "When I Fall In Love" gives the listener an idea of what's in store, the glorious swelling of strings suggest a big, open sound and Diane's perfect pitch, perfect music. Her readings of all the songs here, as with all her recordings, are so emotinal and involved with the lyric, she and the song are one.
Faust is a grand opera in five acts by Charles Gounod to a French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré from Carré’s play Faust et Marguerite, in turn loosely based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Faust, Part 1. It debuted at the Théâtre Lyrique (Théâtre-Historique, Opèra-National, Boulevard du Temple) in Paris on March 19, 1859...
The most unusual war of the 20th century took place in 1969. El Salvador and Honduras faced one another in a qualifying set for the 1970 World Cup. Tensions were already boiling over in the two countries over the issue of Salvadoran workers in Honduras. But soccer sometimes brings out the worst in people, and the games turned from friendly competition into a full-scale military invasion by El Salvador on its neighbor. Although the fighting lasted only four days, the combat damaged two nations already teetering on the brink of economic collapse. And it all started over a soccer game.
And you will find few war stories this potentially interesting in The Century of Warfare, an interminable series from the History Channel. A low-budget 1993 British production that relies on public domain footage, library music, and a monotonous British narrator with a soporific voice, this 26-episode series somehow manages to make one of the most inherently interesting subjects stunningly pedestrian and dull.
