Once Upon a Time... ~ Donna Summer
Once Upon a Time... ~ Donna Summer
Now first of all I am no great fan of disco or r n b music. I cannot listen to beyonce or Whitney or any of the so called r n b greats of recent years. Donna Summer was different and this album in particular meant so much to me personally. It was released in 1977 as a double album. The first record of the two contained 7 songs which are some of the best Donna recorded . The trilogy of now I need you/midnight shift/queen for a day is absolutely brilliant and up there with anything else recorded in the 70's. I was so sad to hear of her passing last year. I immediately got this cd out again and remember the happy times I had when I first heard it on vinyl, it was in a gatefold sleeve with… Read more
Oh Lonesome Me: Singles Collection 1956-1962 ~ Don Gibson
If you like music from the late 1950's & early 1960's,or if you are a country music fan then this album is definitely for you. I knew of 'Sea of Heartbreak' but honestly didn't know the man wrote and recorded so many well known songs. 'A Legend In My Time ' is my favourite I think. Johnny Cash recorded it for one of his later albums. 'Just One Time' was recorded by Mark Knopfler & Chet Atkins for their 'Neck & Neck' album, and I honestly didn't know he wrote 'Too Soon To Know, which was a hit for Roy Orbison in the 1960's. The quality and sound of the recordings is excellent and I can't recommend this album too highly.

I've always been a fan of Bruce Springsteen and have all his albums in my collection, so I was always going to buy this album in spite of all the negative press it has received. What we have here is a very good album which contains the studio version of 41 Shots and a re-recording of The Ghost of Tom Joad. While these may be the main songs on the album there are others worthy of mention. Down In The Hole, The Wall and the title track are all new favourites of mine and while it perhaps doesn't reach the heights of Wrecking Ball it is by no means a poor album. Maybe he's missing some old friends and wants us to continue hearing them. Clarence Clemons is featured on this record as is Danny… Read more
