In between is some lovely pop music, which one finds after they trip their way through the amazing nine and a half minutes of the title track.

Publicado por Woody en 2 comentarios:. This two-album-on-one-CD compilation captures Brinsley Schwarz at their musical peak on two levels. The material on Silver Pistol, arguably their best Frank Rennicke - Nur Unsere Gedanken Sind Frei! (Cassette, Album), is remastered impeccably so that you can practically hear the action on the acoustic guitar strings on "Nightingale" and get just as close to the electric guitar on "Silver Pistol," while the electric bass on "The Last Time I Was Fooled" feels like it's in your lap.
And then there's the second half of the CD, the somewhat slapped-together contents of Please Don't Ever Change, any of which sounds like it could easily be among the best work of the band. And even that shows the levels of perfection Brinsley Schwarz were achieving on just the individual, one-off efforts they generated when they weren't shooting for any big targets.
And except for Showaddywaddy, what other group during the s was covering the Cadillacs' "Speedo" as a serious number?

The songs run the gamut from the funky, groove-oriented opening cut "Shooby" to the joyous reverence of "Redeemer. But make no mistake; this is no "Don't Speak. Yeah, this is a band that likes to have fun, but what a nice elegant step to the right.
Should mark No Doubt's return to top 40 without a hitch. The lead cut, "The Day That I Went Home," which Swan Dive wrote, is a gen- tle, acoustic guitar-based midtempo ballad featuring the vocals of Felder, who sounds so comfortable and at ease before the mike, you have to wonder if she's in the middle of a massage in the recording stu- dio.
Triple-A radio could have a field day with this track, which leans pop but still has enough inspiring instrumental tics to please an adult audience. One track hardly says it all, though, for this act, whose tal- ents are widely varied and should be ex- plored with the whole of this wonderful album. Contact Compass Records' Shari Lacy at And what a part- nership — the queen of the Arista empire with outgoing president Clive Davis' diva- in-training, Deborah Cox.
From the simple, classical piano intro, it builds gradually, growing more intense musically as the story intensifies, ultimately culmi- nating in a powerfully performed finale with full strings, magnificent high notes, and all the emotion that comes with an expertly written lyric.
The story starts with the former lover, Houston, giving advice to the new woman. Cox, explaining that she'll experience the same sad story of those who went before her. The song could have been tacky and catty, but instead, it's sweet, compassionate, and nostalgic.
Despite any bad press Houston might be suffering, her talent always outshines any personal challenges. And Cox demonstrates that she is as good as the best and still getting better. Her raspy, rich, and sultry voice is dripping with gritty emotion, like a version of Gladys Kni'ghL In fact.
But while Stone embraces a lot of early- 70s influences, par- ticularly on this track, the song ultimately remains contemporary. While the story could he true for any era — he doesn't know what he has until he's lost her — Stone's attitude is totally from the perspective of today's woman. The song's bridge features an unnamed male partner, with whom Stone duets magically. No drum machines or keyboard tricks. The only magic here is what she conjures with her enchanting voice. Pro- duction is fairly standard fare here, but radio has a warm spot for Mr.
Sammie Bush and should find no hesitation in making this promising youngster's star shine all the brighter. Larrieux's vocals offer a com- bination of jazzy riffs and bluesy moans that take neo-soul to another level. Fellow sisters in song Angie Stone and Kelts have attained commercial suc- cess while maintaining their own artistic integrity; Larrieux is easily poised to do the same.
That would be. BMI MCA CO promo Nothing says springtime like a love song, and Gill provides the soundtrack to a hand-in-hand stroll through the sunshine with this breezy little song.
It's a buoyant, uplifting lyric, and the production gives the sprightly melody plenty of room to breathe. The piano and guitar work are especially inviting. It all adds up to one tasty little record that should find a comfortable home on coun- try radio airwaves. Cochran, B. BMI Warner Bros. It's a well-writ- ten, boisterously sung, and deftly pro- duced ode to life's more enjoyable mo- ments.
Here's hoping all that momentum will light a fire at country radio. This song and artist are so deserv- ing of airplay. Cochran is a strong, distinc- tive vocalist, gifted mulU-instrumentalist, and skilled songwriter.
This single show- cases all those gifts and sounds ready- made for country radio. For programmers looking for uptempo songs, this fits the hill perfectly. This time out, Cochran shows her feisty LP and deserves to strike the pin- nacle again. The tune is the title cut from their forthcoming album.
As the lyric goes, it's hardly Shakes- peare — after all, it's just about stuff — but it's cute and clever, and country audiences will likely relate to the words.

Here we go: It's gonna be thrm riding right up the charts with this solid, sum- mery smash. The youth train shows no signs of slowing down. ASCAP Espirilu Records CD pramoj The indefatigable Deborah Gibson is one of those rare, highly driven artists — and businesswomen— who refuses to shut down shop just because top 40 trends changed and radio moved in a different direction. With her string of nine top 40 hits fromher fan base remains active and rabidly dedicated, thanks to a continuous stream of high-quality materi- al over the years on her own label, Kspiri- tu.
And what a treat Miss Gibson has in store as a tip of the hat to her followers' tenacity. Fans and radio alike will find the sensuous, dance-injected "What You Want" a cutting-edge moment, featuring the recognizable vocals of this old friend and soul-saturating production from nev- er-failing maestro Tony Moran. Time to let go of any lingering prejudices you may have and let your audience real- ize that this artist remains a vital part of the scene. Could be the secret -weapon hit of the season.
Meanwhile, Eagles - On The Border (Vinyl, LP, Album) is in the studio now, working on an upcoming al- bum, so keep an eye out later this year. From early buzz, it promises to please. Promise abounds with this first track from her upcoming sophomore album, "Mirror Mirror," due next month. Price does lit- tle to mess with jwrfection here, stick- ing close to the original arrange- ment with the addition of some jazzy, forlorn piano.
Vocally, however, there's no doubt that Price is doing her own thing here, and it's as tasty as a cup- cake. She opens this song— about pre- cious, heartfelt Work Late Night (NYC Edit) - Oliver $ - DTPodcast 129 (File, MP3) spent in the arms of somebody else's man — with an appreciable suhtlety.
Only one little misstep here: Def Soul saw fit to fade the song for radio, neatly fitting it into a four- minute time span. No such need. Sure- ly, radio can spare that extra :t sec- onds for a song that sounds oh-so-fresh the second time around. IVice has already accomplished much in the short time she's been in the public eye. This enchanting new single will only add fuel to the fire. Just marvelous. A fine effort for smooth jazz ra- dio and another career high for this abid- ing artist.
From the album "Absolute Ben- son," due May AB and Daddy Black, the duo known for bringing bass music to the ears of the American puhlic with 's "Whoot, There It Is," are ready to make listeners nationwide shake it again with "Tightwork. With the help of Quad City's Jay "Ski," the track is a lyrically light tune whose purpose is to get the party started right — and it succeeds. The infectious bassline and the catchy hook of "Tightwork" should be the perfect setup for the group to make a repeat appearance on the charts.
Here's hoping musical tastes haven't changed so much that this fun-loving track will be overlooked. If history repeats itself, and it should, radio will be eating up "Tight- work," and summer kids from coast to coast will be giving it up for the bass.
His tale is sprinkled with so many Horatio Alger-esque scenes that one New York Times writer famously noted, "If there hadn't been a Bruce Springsteen, then crit- ics would have made him up. It can be hard to pick apart any esteem- ed song- writer's work with- out sounding pretentious, anil Spring- s t e e n ' s music is no exception to that rule. It's equally difficult to re-create the drama of the performer's shows with just ink and paper, and Springsteen's special connection with fans presents a writer with a minefield of cliches.
What a nice surprise it is, then, to be treated to two uniquely absorbing books on the artist, pub- lished within mont hs of each other. The first. The second, a collection of photos titled "Access All Areas," captures the artist beautifully in liis milieu s M'cifica! Alterman dutifully takes readers back to Springsteen's New Jersey childhood and depicts the singer's strained relationship with his dad without resorting to "Behind The Musie"-style sensationalism.
He then follows young Bruce through his early career battles and ulti- mate triumph in the music industry, setting the scene for the break- through album "Born To Run" and its mixed blessing in the song- writer's life. Not only does the author appraise the work and its commercial concessions fairly, he skillfully connects the album with its unique political and social set- tings, arguing effectively on behalf of Springsteen's artistic integrity without sounding like a blind fan.
Alterman writes, "Springsteen was an individualist speaking through the voice of a corporate- dominated delivery system, an artist who employed an essentially conservative set of symbols to deliv- er a message of personal liberation and communal responsibility. While he sees "Nebraska" as a "key moment in American cultural history," he is objective enough to determine that "very little on 'Human Touch' invites repeated listenings.
While he certainly doesn't shy away from the artist's trou- bled child- hood or failed first marriage, Album) author treats the fragile sub- ject matter property and again avoids singer's down i melodramatic brush, intimately, he portrays Springsteen as a real erson, a man who can say, "Two of the best days of my life were the day I picked up the guitar and the day I learned how to put it down.
The photographer was allowed to follow the singer and Ms legendary E Street Band during their most historic tour, which served as a wake-up call to those who saw "Horn To Run" as the over-hyped output of a Bob Dylan wannabe. As Goldsmith writes in her intro- duction, "Inthere were those who thought Bruce was the savior of rock'n'roll and those who didn't think much LP him at all. A definitive pair of books for hardcore Springsteen followers, as well as entertaining and education- al reads for the uninitiated, these works reveal the l-ocker and his art with precision and care.
Billboard, Broadway, New York, N. And many of those in a posi- tion to know predict that Atlanta is at the dawn of a musical renaissance— one that may represent a convergence of the city's once-polarized musical cliques and will ultimately smear the line between genres. Musically speaking, Atlanta is well-endowed, representing every style imaginable — hip-hop, Southern rock, techno, soul, country, folk and, per- haps, a few earnest and contrived hybrids that fuse existing genres to create new ones.
Atlanta has become a musical amalgam of the influences, styles and tastes of its natives and transplants. They might have literally sold their product from the trunks of their cars and, though they had big dreams, they never actually quit their day jobs.
Blayz Bui many of today's independent labels are different, helmed by artists and businesspeople who know the music game and are poised to compete and ultimately partner with the industry's major players. In Atlanta, the musical hotbed that it is, opportunities are great for indies — that is, if they have the money to finance their dreams. But, according to Candis Bonner, a partner 66 in the Atlanta-based Born 4 Entertainment a marketing and pro- motion company, many of them don't "Some of them might have had the money but they spent it all in the studio, To Err Is Human - Thornton*.
Some wanted to come out hitting the streets like they were already there and spent all their money prior to actually doing the real work, and, then, some simply don't have the money in the first place. But we certainly encourage and have reached out to some of the Atlanta-based labels and hope that they will come and do their distribution with us. Bonner says the long-held perception that the industry is dominated by gangsters and drug dealers is inaccurate and unfair. She says her company's clientele runs the gamut, from doctors to insurance brokers to music teachers "who want to start a label and have the money to do it.
So, we help them get a project from the studio to the ri store. Releases by Lysa and Finesse are slated for later this year. Thompson said she and her husband, who moved to Atlanta six years ago from New York, owned three suc- cessful paging and cellular stores prior to T.H.M.
(Take The House Music) (Original Mix Edit) into the music business. He started finding people that wanted to do a track here and there and, before I Knew it, we were actually a label, a publishing company, a promo- lion company and an entertainment company. One thing just led to another. Says Thompson, "We just want to build a strong enough foundation for them to be confident that, when they do sign us, we will be a label that is here to stay, not something that's going to fade away because of mismanagement of funds or the com- pany as a whole.
We were successful in our previous busi- ness. A lot of people came to us and made offers to buy that business," she adds. Real Deal Records, strives to be a source for such music. The label has a roster of 10 artists— all of whom are either gospel or inspirational in some way. The bottom line: no cursing, no lewdness and no suggestive videos.
In an open letter to the media in which he introduces the label, Holyfield says. That's why I call it real music. But all have one thing in common, they are "musically and spiritually in tune," says Oscar Fields, the label's executive VP and general manager. He says Holyfield tapped him for the position because "he felt that, in order for the company to be successful, he needed to find someone that had true record business experience.
Our videos don't have to go through the re-edit process at BET like everyone else's does, but it also means that we don't get as much play as everyone else.
But we are finding that a lot of people, both video- wise and radio-wise, are hoping that, at one point in the future, the entire industry gets to where we are. I would love to have the label paying for itself, and the only way to do that is to have artists on the label that have gold and platinum potential.
I see us contin- uing to do a great job for our gospel artists, but I also foresee being more aggressive on the urban end. Fields says, "All of the majors are very interested in market share and for them to grow they're going to be after any successful indepen- dent company, and I'm obviously assuming that we're going to grow. I think the time will come when we will be approached by major labels. Evander, because of his view of the label and wanting it to be something where his kids will have a place to learn and grow and work, might not want to do that but we will be approached by major companies in the future.
His name is familiar, but most folks out- side the intimate entertainment circle of Atlanta probably don't know what he looks like. Yet his fingerprints cover many of the When Youre Smiling - Happy Dixieland Band - Dixieland Favorites (8-Track Cartridge) hat have sprung from Atlanta's soil.

Mercedes launched his label with a record by Duice called "Daisy Duks. Mercedes went on to release projects and put together deals that, to date, have resulted in sales of more than 20 million units.
There It Is" and TLC's "No Scrubs," a project that he says and She'kspere's office confirms came about as a result of his hooking the group up with the producer. So why don't people know about Tony Mercedes? I guess the frustrating part for a lot of these producers is that I'm not a producer. I'm just a person who has the ability to pass the green grass to get to the dirt, knowing that I can take that dirt and turn it into green grass. So, I can't do what Dallas [Austin] does, I can't do what Jermaine [Dupri] does, I can't do what Rico [Wade] does, but every year I'm gonna have a big record and I know they have to scratch their heads and try to figure out 'how the hell did he do it?
And he utilizes no- name producers with some half-ass artists and he just hits every year. That union produced the smash hits "My Baby's Daddy" and "Splackavellie. It's not a bad thing, but you can't be the man if you work for the man," he adds. Today, Mercedes is the man. I'm missing a whole bunch of money. He says, "Each day promotes a different kind of struggle, a differ- ent kind of hassle, but at the end of the day I sleep good and it's a good thing to be able to look in the mirror.
People think, 7 can talk to him. Hell answer his own phone. A native of New Jersey. Gaelle came to Atlanta to study business at Clark Atlanta University. I started doing music again so that I could have an outlet.
Reluctant to describe her sound. Gaelle says her music is layered with mul- tiple styles and represents her personal emotional tides. The next day I might do something very introspective and intense. I like having that freedom because that's what an artist does. An artist cre- ates whenever the My Baby - Cold Chisel - The Live Tapes - Vol.

An underground loyalist, Gaelle is determined to keep her music pure and, although she's no stranger to commercial success she wrote and sang three songs for the internationally acclaimed Wamdue Project's "Program Yourself"she treads lightly when it comes to courting label deals, opting instead to market her music via the Internet. Nonetheless, she says, she remains open to possibilities.

A management firm helmed by Walden and his brother Alan was the springboard for Capricorn Records. But, in those days, Walden's roster consist- ed not of white rock bands, but black soul singers; among them, Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Percy Sledge and Johnnie Taylor. Walden's work with these artists grew out of his passion for soul music, an emo- tional and organic sound that was indige- nous to Macon.
Years later, after the plane crash death of Otis Redding, he shifted gears, The Wild Rover - Various - 60 Greatest Ever Irish Ballads (CD) less on black artists and more on Southern-bred rockers.
The most success- ful of whom are the elec- tric rock band 31 1 whose current release, 'Sound- system," is certified gold, and Cake, whose CD, "Prolonging The Magic," has been certified plat- inum. Walden says Capricorn prides itself on putting the music first and shunning cookie-cutter artist-develop- ment.
We try to make everything as natural and original as possible. Look at the Allman Brothers— they're going on a year career. That's no accident. Those are the kinds of things I'd like to be remembered for. I never think about myself in terms of contributions.

I've been fortunate to be able to do it and do it well, and do it in the South. We try to make every- thing as oator- al and original as possible. HQ for alternative rock, this mod- est-sized emporium is perpetually bustling with youthful customers of all shapes and interests.

Their salvation? I flipped," recalls Alexander, who. You knew exactly what [the artists] were saying, and it was the art form that I could best relate to. It just drew me in. It felt like my natural art form. Tracks on their as yet unscheduled album reflect the real-life struggles of two young men who have battled addiction and men- tal illness and lived to tell about it.
Those same qualities set off a bidding war among labels wanting to sign the group. Two months after meeting the Smiths, Rehab was signed to Sony and heralded by the executives as the best thing since Vanilla Ice, sans the smoke and mir- rors.

Still, its Friday edition includes a weekend music preview that gets a little more adventurous, with brief profiles on lesser-known local musicians often being a feature.
Also in Friday's edition is a weekend live music calendar that's easy to navi- gate and fairly complete. DARP Dallas Austin's recording complex is constantly bustling with acts on his Freeworld label, plus others from the city's booming urban music community and out-of- towners like Erykah Badu.

A new video documentary, "A Decade of Daemon," is just out. A solo album from Ray is in the planning stages. I think that's why the whole notion of [a regional sound] is son of disappearing," Aparo says.

I The Beatles With Pete Best - Lost Decca Sessions (CD, Album) it's the largest untapped talent market left in the United States.
Katz believes Atlanta music represents a "cornucopia" of influences that defies genre and stereo- types. And I think that's good. It's good for the overall business climate in Atlanta which benefits tremendously from having this industry here. It's like a big tree. There's a whole global music scene and, right now, Atlanta is on the verge of touching that.
Briggs, who moved to Atlanta two years ago from Long Beach, Calif. Today, Briggs says that the city's potential is limitless. As that contin- ues to happen, the lines of definition are going to continue to blur.
I believe that is what the trend is going to be. I look lor people who want to make a difference. You have to look for that, but you have to look in places where people don't want to look. I want the new thing and, in order to get it, I have to search where other people are not.
Maybe in about five years it'll be big on that side but, right now on the urban side, there's still a lot of room for growth. It u the new Motown.
There's no other place generating music like we are. The train to the top has to stop in Atlanta. It rivals, or maybe surpasses at times, New York or L.
