California Sunset
California Sunset
Price: £11.13

4.0 out of 5 stars Originals, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: California Sunset (Audio CD)
Mowtown had a lot groups wich were just there they got some hits wich were already sung by others and did the repotoire wich in case of the originals is a shame qause they came from a great background in music and a lot of talent marvin gay saw similiar backgrounds in them and helped them to hits with baby I'm for real and the Bells that fact that they had holland dozie holland as producers kept them steady in the picture then before this album came in play holland dozie holland had left to start their invictus label one of their lead singers C.P.Spencer went on with a solo career it didn't look bright for the originals
but the used their experience and got lamont dozier to produce ty hunter from glass house wich they knew from earlier stepped in and this album became their first "own" album with their own sound and terrific numbers like why you'd lie,California sunset and sweet rhapsody

4.0 out of 5 stars Jermaine, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jermaine was always in the shadow of his young brother Michael but that doesn't mean that he was lesser.Jermaine never made a impact like his brother altough there are a lot of good albums from jermaine and he helped some bands on the way and gor some help on the way this his Dynamite album is one of the most recognizable albums maybey because of the overall "pop" sound of beqause his dueth with pia zadorra caught a little attention a renewed interest in the album and got more songs from the album released like the smooth : sweetest,sweetest and Do what you do and there is off qause a dueth with michael : tell me i'm not dreaming the push for Whitney her first album with : take good care of my heart and there is escape from the planet of the antman I'm still trying to see the video clip wich should be something like the wild boys from duran duran but more "sci'fi"

Not only did Christopher Golden tell a good story with Mike mignolia but this was also the beginning of their cooperation telling stories and as it later became clear this was also the beginning of a new entry in the mignola verse wich adapted baltimore to the comics olden times with a rising evil lurking atmosferic moods as we known from mignolia a very nice read

there was a time when H.P.Lovecraft was barley known today almost everything is slightly based on his stories but in case of this two gentlemen it is forgiven Mike mignolia who based his mignolia verse with hellboy lore on some lovecraft desigsn does a good job and together with Christopher Golden he tells a wonderfull "horror" fairytale maybey not as harsh as a clive barker would like it but I'm sure that Guillermo del toro be proud to make a movie out of it

3.0 out of 5 stars Mignola, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybey not as good as Baltimore or Joe Golem but the third collabration of Christopher Golden and Mike Mignolia is still a enjoyable read it's like a mignolia comic in words and the few picturs in the book helps create this feeling even more
what will be next from these two writers

4.0 out of 5 stars Temps, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bare Back (Audio CD)
One off my all time favourites the Temptations still going strong today in the seventies they left mowtown beqause they were unhappy with where things were going and not scoring hits like before so they signed to atlanta a move wich brought susces to the spinners who signed years earlier and had a string of hits but alas not for the temptations it is argued that atlanta just wanted the competition out of the water they didn't give them much promotion of coverage and after two albums : "hear to tempt you" and "bare Back" the Temps went back to mowtown and released "Power" but that doesn't mean that those two albums were bad or anything not at all it was maybey a bit away from the regular temptation sound it had a less heavy funk sound and a bit more disco vibe to it but it's still a very nice temptations album so when I saw this one on c.d. i Had to have it

Atlantic Starr was one of the first who came with a smooth studio sound so recoginazable in the earlie eighties this their fifth album the third with producer james anthony carmichael (who helped the commodores in to the eigthies and started lionel richie on his solo career) has no bad songs all are very nice from uptempo dance songs to smooth slow jams

the seventies was a golden time for r&B a lot a groups and bands where playing and releasing albums
and this album made an impact between all the other groups wich is very hard considering the other groups
and I don't say that beqause of the album cover wich sure catch your eye it's light funky music uptempo numbers followed by ballads some disco influences here and there a bit like the temptations at the time (and no I don't say that beqause they have a former member : Damon Harris singing)

4.0 out of 5 stars don't waste my time, 29 Jun 2013

This review is from: Clean (Audio CD)
I didn't know that edwin starr was still active when I found this 1980 album(years later)and it was fantastic if you have to label it call it disco just like a lot af albums in that year but it's housing different numbers from Uptempo dance songs to slow ballads and yes a lot of it is typical disco music altough that's not a bad thing the best disco made in my opinion is the disco with a dramatic sound like gloria gaynors : I will survive or the spinners interpretation of working my way back to you well if you like those songs listen to : Don't waste my time it builds up to a cresendo chorus and it will blow you away
