Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1974 album from the Irish/British singer/songwriter. Recorded in Los Angeles, Gilbert's fourth album, another UK Top Ten hit, is full of witty, carefully-crafted songs and very successfully blends his very British dancehall sensibility with a smooth West Coast feel. This remastered edition features seven non-album singles and hard-to-find B-sides as bonus tracks.
JUNO Award winner (Canada's Grammy) Morgan Davis' music draws from a rich tradition of both Country and Big City Blues, as well as his own contemporary blues songs infused with memorable wit and a large dose of humor. Morgan is joined on I Got My Own by long time musical friends, Colin Linden (Bob Dylan Band), David Wilcox and Blues Music Award winning producer Alec Fraser (Jeff Healey Band). Morgan Davis cut his teeth playing with Blues Legends Hubert Sumlin and Snooky Pryor and his passion for the Blues has never wavered. One listen to I Got My Own will re-ignite yours!
The recent CD of the Fred Hersch Trio is characterized by a nearly incredible density of harmonic and rhythmic ideas. This is the result not only of a perfect match between the musicians. It's Fred Hersch, who is extraordinary brillant - one might say: more than ever before. In contrast to other productions, this CD contains none of the Fred Hersch-compositions. The performance is "only" based on Standards out of the Great American Songbook - the reason may be, that this production is exclusively made for the Japanese Market.
1989 was the best year ever for the Melodic Rock / AOR genre. The most precious records appeared at that time and unfortunately many bands without a major label support promoting their releases get sunken into oblivion. One of these was Swiss ULTRANITE only album "I Want My Own Planet". All members from Ultranite worked previously in central Europe on different bands and writing songs for others, as Andy Boulton's Tokyo Blade or Andy Marc. The type of Melodic Rock crafted by Ultranite has many points in common with the Scandinavian scene, especially in the AOR keyboard infusions into the music.
