Der Titel von Ina Müllers neuem Album Weiblich. Ledig. 40. klingt bestimmt provokativ im Sinne gewisser Frauenzeitschriften. Ganz sicherlich spielt die Moderatorin, Autorin, Schauspielerin und Sängerin aus Hamburg mit dieser coolen Ironie der Generation 40 plus in fast allen ihren Texten, greift gängige Slogans und Trendstories um die Frau als solche auf. Das klingt manchmal etwas arg platt und klischeehaft nach forscher Frauenliteratur, etwa auf „Wegen einer Älteren“, „Ich ziehe aus“ und dem simpel gestrickten „Dumm kickt gut“ im Reggaegewand. Viel besser ist sie, wenn sie sich ganz auf weibliche Irritationen durch Trend und Mode konzentriert, siehe die Single „Bye Bye Arschgeweih“, „Hoffentlich ist der Sommer bald vorbei“ oder dem komödiantischen Barjazz „Hätt ich‘n Hund“.

French chanteuse Mireille Mathieu is classically known for her illustrious French crooning during the '60s and '70s. In the early '60s, French pop vocalist Johnny Hallyday's manager Johnny Stark noticed Mathieu's enchanting vocalic beauty and later built her into her own star with the classic urchin hairdo and loud, vibrant costumes. She was quickly hailed as the next Edith Piaf and her 1965 performance run at the Paris Olympia sparked her recording relationship with Barclay Records. Singles such as "Mon Credo," "C'est Ton Nom," and "Qu'elle Est Belle" made Mathieu an international star in Europe while achieving mild success in the Americas…
40/40: The Best Selection is a comprehensive double-disc career overview of Olivia Newton-John designed to celebrate her four decades in show business. Yes, the compilation runs 40 tracks, but this is not designed to showcase each era of Olivia's career in equal measure. Perhaps there are a few more latter-day cuts than most audiences would know, and maybe there are a few more early tracks than needed, but all the big hits are here, from the early mellow country-rock to the slick soft rock and melodic disco of the turn of the '80s. Compared to the U.S. compilation Gold, this isn't quite as good - there's too much of the two bookends of a long career - but it does have what most casual audiences require: all the hits, all sounding as good as they ever have.
Chester Arthur Burnett, known as Howlin' Wolf, was a Chicago blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player, originally from Mississippi. With a booming voice and looming physical presence, he is one of the best-known Chicago blues artists. Musician and critic Cub Koda noted, "no one could match Howlin' Wolf for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits." Producer Sam Phillips recalled, "When I heard Howlin' Wolf, I said, 'This is for me. This is where the soul of man never dies'". Several of his songs, including "Smokestack Lightnin'", "Back Door Man", "Killing Floor" and "Spoonful", have become blues and blues rock standards. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 51 on its list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time."
