Carl Carlton was the singer's sole gold LP and included his sole gold single, "She's a Bad Mama Jama." Produced by Leon Heywood, it includes the steppers favorite "Your Love's Rated X-Tra," " Don't You Wanna Make Love" (which sounds like Rick James' "You & I"), and the ballad "I Think It's Gonna Be Alright." The album highlights Carlton's vocal growth. "She's a Bad Mama Jama" can be found on Pure Funk, Vol. 2, Old School, Vol.3, The Number Ones: Soul on Fire, Funk Classics: The 80's, and Strip Jointz, Vol. 2: More Hot Songs for Sexy Dancers, among others.

Marking the 300th anniversary of Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach’s birth in 1714, this 13-CD box at budget price presents a survey of his greatest works, performed by some of the most renowned musicians in the world of historically informed performance. Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach (1714-1788), the second son of JS Bach, was a celebrated figure in his lifetime and is recognised as a crucial figure in the transition from the Baroque to the Classical styles. Mozart, no less, said of him: "He is the father, we are the children.”

The work appears twice on this compilation: one version was conducted by Eugen Jochum, who devoted a great deal of his attention to Orff's music. The composer himself considered Jochum's interpretations to have set the standard for performances.
Are you ready for extreme 18th century keyboard? The typically sparse packaging graphics of this ECM release may indicate only to German speakers what's contained inside: a "Tangentenflügel" is a tangent piano, a rare keyboard instrument of Mozart's time that used hammers, striking the strings at a tangent, but no dampers. The sound combines qualities of a clavichord (its nearest relative, but the tangent piano is louder), a fortepiano, and a harpsichord.
