Boz Scaggs, ‘Memphis’ – Album Review

The muted tones, occasionally punched by brass or hi-hat, on Boz Scaggs’ ‘Memphis’ should sound familiar to R&B fans. They’re the same warm, subtle sounds found on soul recordings made by Al Green and other artists at Memphis’ Royal Studio in the 1970s. Green’s producer, Willie Mitchell, drew a casual, inviting timbre from the room that gave Green’s classic songs their distinctive hue. Scaggs, recording at Royal Studio with producer Steve Jordan, conjures a similar sound on ‘Memphis.’

35 Years Ago: Van Halen’s Debut Album Released

Hard rock hadn’t really hatched a band like Van Halen before 1978. There were groups with guitar heroes. There were metal bands that covered ‘60s classics with new-style flash. And there were corny frontmen with overeager libidos. But they were never tossed together into one simmering pot made up of part dinosaur stomp, part lightning-fast guitar acrobatics and part Hollywood arrogance before Van Halen’s self-titled debut album was unleashed.

Jimi Hendrix, ‘People, Hell & Angels’ – Album Review

If we’re to believe ‘People, Hell & Angels,’ the latest in a long string of posthumous albums by Jimi Hendrix, its dozen previously unreleased tracks were the building blocks to the late guitarist’s follow-up to ‘Electric Ladyland,’ his final album with the Experience.

35 Years Ago: Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ Tops the Charts

It’s hard to not hear the heartbreak in Fleetwood Mac's ‘Rumours.’ It’s hard to not hear the anger too. After kicking around as a cult blues-rock band for almost a decade, the British band hit the jackpot in 1975 after hiring a pair of California singer-songwriters, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Everyone was happy: longtime members John and Christine McVie, who were married, Buckingham and Nicks, who were a couple … But then fame hit.

Fleetwood Mac, ‘Rumours (Expanded Edition)’ — Album Review

Breakup albums don’t get much better than ‘Rumours,’ Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 blockbuster that was recorded as band members went through various stages of relationship adjustment. When they made their breakthrough self-titled album in 1975, Fleetwood Mac included two couples, one married; by the time ‘Rumours’ was released, they were broken up. Listen to the record, and you’ll get an idea what happened.

The Beatles, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – Film Review

Going into the last quarter of 1967, the Beatles couldn’t get any bigger. Their masterwork, ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ pretty much changed the way pop music was made, sounded and consumed. They had transcended the rock ‘n’ roll ghetto, entering the final phase of a career that glided past pop music’s boundaries and into a wide-open realm of exploration and experimentation.

20 Years Ago: Neil Young’s ‘Harvest Moon’ Album Released

‘Harvest Moon’ was heralded as the sequel to ‘Harvest,’ Neil Young’s 1972 classic that remains his only No. 1 album. But we heard that before: Everything from the unreleased (but heavily bootlegged) 1977 LP ‘Chrome Dreams’ to various songs that have appeared on albums throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s have claimed that honor.

35 Years Ago: Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Street Survivors’ Album Released

‘Street Survivors’ was going to be the album that would make Lynyrd Skynyrd even bigger stars. They had already dented the mainstream, reaching the Top 10 with ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ in 1974, and picking up a sizable following of Southern-rock fans since releasing their 1973 debut album. But 1977’s ‘Street Survivors’ was supposed to catapult them into a whole other realm of rock-star popularity.
