Sylvie Vartan is a French pop institution, as popular today as when she first took the yé-yé scene by storm in 1962. The vivacious and always stylish Sylvie was also a pioneer amongst the new breed of French female artists, crossing the Atlantic several times in the early 60s to record. She proved remarkably adept at tackling material in English, which resulted in many superb recordings chanted in a husky, compelling accent. Her main foreign release in that era was the US-only album "Gift Wrapped From Paris". It combined tracks from the 1963 "Sylvie à Nashville" LP along with new sessions cut in New York in late 1964 with a crack session crew plus Ellie Greenwich and friends on backing vocals, all directed by Sylvie's brother Eddie Vartan. Later on Sylvie recorded in England and utilised the talents of her British in-house writers, Tommy Brown and Micky Jones, the latter later to become famous in the band Foreigner.

I pity the poor foreigners, who don't speak German. I'm going through my record collection ripping those that I can't find online for download. And most of them are in German, leaving everybody behind who rather regards German language as a disease. Here we have rhyming Roski, who brings this German language to artistic splendor. His lyrics are sometimes comedy, sometimes nonsense word plays, often cynic or sarcastic. Some of his rhymes became proverbs in everyday language, pushing his records into the top ten charts in the 70ies. If you want to improve your German (whether you are German or a foreigner), this is the best occasion. The musical style varies between folk, country and jazz.

Cat#: Island 90193-1 | Country/Year: US 1984
Genre: Rock | Hoster: Filesonic/Uploaded

This Fast Forward album/project is like a whos who of melodic rock. So many punters turn up to the Races on this one. Based around ex Stories singer Ian Lloyd, plus noted Vancouver based Bruce Fairbairn, the duo invite many local residents plus hangers on to contribute. David Sinclair, Jim Vallance, Bryan Adams, plus significant contributions from Beau Hill, Bob Rock, and even the Foreigner pairing of Mick Jones and Lou Gramm.
So this is def. in the competition of finding the ugliest album cover ever, but may be interesting for friends of the early Bryan Adams, who did much of the songwriting here.

Oscar Pettiford was not only one of the best bassists in jazz but was also one of the first to make the cello a solo instrument. Pettiford had to be considered equal, and possibly even better than Charles Mingus, when discussing the most important bass players in jazz at the time of this 1954 Hollywood recording. The quintet of Pettiford with Julius Watkins on French horn, Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, pianist Duke Jordan and drummer Ron Jefferson are at their best supporting Pettiford who performs here on both bass and cello.
