Over My Head is the eighth studio album by Gerry Rafferty, released in 1994. It is the follow-up to his album On a Wing and a Prayer and features many of the same musicians. The album includes songwriting contributions from Joe Egan and a John Lennon cover. This was the last album Hugh Murphy produced before his death in 1998.
"Take My Time" is the debut album by UK pop singer Sheena Easton. Released in January 1981, the album reached #17 in the UK and earned her a Gold Disc. Two months later, a ten track version of the album was released in the USA and Canada as "Sheena Easton". The album went Gold in the USA and Platinum in Canada.
It is still relatively rare for a son to follow his father on an identical instrument and reach an equal level of expertise, but guitarist Doug Raney (son of the late Jimmy Raney) is one of the few. This accomplished bopper leads a trio date with bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Billy Hart, exploring standards of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. His intense up-tempo reworking of Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love?" starts the date with a flourish. Raney is at his most lyrical during the foot-tapping rendition of the ballad "Tenderly." The leader's elaborate yet subtle fills in "You Go to My Head" contrast with his potent interpretation of Charlie Parker's "Barbados." Recommended.
