Song of Seven" is Jon Anderson's most conventional album to date, sounding at times like a spiritually informed SUPERTRAMP. A handful of these tracks are carryovers from the last YES sessions, rendered here in a straightforward style by the studio musicians on hand. While less well received than his collaborative effort with VANGELIS released earlier in the year, Short Stories, this record is much more accessible and engaging.

The Clash sounded like they could do anything on London Calling. For its triple-album follow-up, Sandinista!, they tried to do everything, adding dub, rap, gospel, and even children's choruses to the punk, reggae, R&B, and roots rock they already were playing…

Following two patchier albums filled with cheery East End tales, Argy Bargy (1980), emerged as their crowning achievement. Now reissued along with some of the band's later efforts, it remains a masterpiece of kitchen sink pop, possibly second only to the follow up, East Side Story. Chris Difford, and Glenn Tilbrook, the band's Lennon and McCartney had already proven themselves adept at gritty, witty tableaus like Up The Junction or Slap And Tickle. Added to this was their technical sheen. There's Tilbrook's underrated ability to pull tasty (and apt) solos out of the hat like a younger George Harrison - the solo at 1.46 on Pulling Mussels (From The Shell) is one of the best - and also one of the best drummers in the business in Gilson Lavis. All this briefly made Squeeze world-beaters.

Neo was the name of a French quintet that performed instrumental Progressive rock, and was led by bassist André Paul and saxophone player Didier Erard (French Kiss). This line-up issued their unique eponymous album in 1980. Their compositions are based on melodies with occasional breaks, rhythms changes, accelerations, colours as well as changing and sophisticated atmospheres. The themes are very elaborated, complex and not quite straight and easy. The instrumental dialogues are numerous: a rageous or cutting edge guitar answers to inventive keyboards or to a whirling saxophone line. The band can successively remind of Bo Hansson, Camel (Mel Collins's period) or Caravan, and sometimes King Crimson ("Islands" days).

Country | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 37:11 min | 718 MB | Front Cover
Label: Columbia Nashville Legacy | Tracks: 11 | Rls.date: 1980/2016

One of the first in a series of duet albums with country legends that Willie Nelson undertook during a period of seemingly uncontrolled output at Columbia, this remains one of the best. Ray Price may be regarded as something of a laid-back smoothie by listeners whose ears are stuffed with wax, but the reality is that Price is one of country's most expressive vocalists as well as a man interested in kicking country tempos as well as ballads. In fact, a certain type of swing boogie beat favored in Texas is known by musicians as "the Ray Price shuffle."

By the end of the '70s, the Beach Boys were turning into a novelty act with their live shows and spewing forth easily forgettable records. One would have hoped that with the emergence of a new decade the group would have adapted a fresh outlook and returned to its former levels of creativity.

Culturally, mestizos are folks of mixed Latin and Indian heritage who live along the U.S./Mexico borderlands; Filipino-born Joe Bataan felt enough of that same duality to name his record label Salsoul (salsa plus soul, see) and to name his late-'70s backing group his Mestizo Band. A retitled reissue of 1980's Mestizo, with no bonus tracks and most of the songs edited into lengthy suites, Joe Bataan and His Mestizo Band is primarily a late-era disco record, with only minimal Latin accents on songs like the by-the-numbers opener, "Mestizo."
