When they first arrived on the scene in 1986, The Georgia Satellites couldn't have been more incongruous with their musical contemporaries. On the one hand they were flanked by clean cut electro pop acts and on the other they were surrounded by legions of hair-metal reprobates. The Satellites, however, were digging deep into not only their regional southern routes but also into the pre rock and roll era as a whole. Based in Atlanta, Georgia the band worked up a sound that was part British blues boom and part southern rock evoking comparisons to influences as diverse as Status Quo, The Rolling Stones, the Faces and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was a raw, take no prisoners style with an eye on the prize yet with a nod to the bands musical heritage setting them apart as a fresh breath of air in a scene short of genuine originality. Issued in 1986 on the Elektra label and produced by Jeff Glixman (Kansas, Gary Moore, Black Sabbath), the album is an explosive statement of intent with guitars cranked to the max and songs that sounds so familiar they could've written themselves. Comprised of front man Dan Baird, guitarist Rick Richards, bassist Rick Price and drummer Mauro Magellan they smashed their way to #2 in the Billboard singles chart with Keep Your Hands To Yourself and Battleship Chains . Look out too for a killer version of Rod Stewart's classic Every Picture Tells A Story .

5.0 out of 5 stars All the very best huge hits....., 5 Mar. 2015
Greatest Hits includes fifteen Supremes singles, 10 of which went to number-one, among them were "Where Did Our Love Go", "Stop! In the Name of Love", "You Can't Hurry Love", and the most recent Supremes number-one, "The Happening" (a non-album track from the 1967 film of the same name). Also included are five popular Supremes B-sides: "Standing at the Crossroads of Love", "Ask Any Girl", "There's No Stopping Us Now", "Everything is Good About You", and "Whisper You Love Me Boy".

Greatest Hits was their second number-one album on both the Billboard 200 and the Billboard R&B Albums charts in the United States, and also reached the top of the pop album chart in the United Kingdom as well. The album sold over six million copies, world-wide as of 1988. However, it was never accorded Platinum Status as Motown did not submit to RIAA Certification until years later. Although not nominally credited because of their increasingly estranged relationship with Motown, all of the songs included were produced by the songwriting/production team of Holland–Dozier–Holland.

Fremeaux takes its compilations of pre-WWII vintage recordings of roots-folk sounds very seriously. Accordeon, Vol. 2 is a two-CD set of roots music, French-style, showing the accordion roots of chanson and strains of incorporating swing jazz and musette. It's home turf music, the label's second collection of recordings that came from, and was made for, Parisian dancehalls, circa 1925-1942.
The lion's share of the tracks follows the accordion-with guitar instrumental format of "Indifference" byTony Murena, whose five tracks are a pretty varied lot. Strong soloing marks the end of "Passion" and all of "Caprice Musette," while "Milk-Bar" brings in a Hot Club of Paris swing feel and clipped guitar comping that characterizes the jazzy element throughout the compilation. For contrast, "Maria" is a very slow and bluesy ballad, with a solo starting at very low volume with low-register notes before jumping higher and handing off to a restrained, emotional guitar solo. The chief distinctions fall in the style realm. The musette influence, which gives a near bouzouki-rembetica Greek feel, shines through on "Don Diegue" and "Boucade." For more '30s jazz feel, "Jour de Swing" lives up to its title with clarinet and trumpet trading with the accordion over serious rhythm and Gus Viseur's "Philippe's Stomp" hands off brief solos from sax to clarinet to muted trumpet to accordion over strummed flapper guitar. A two-step feel underpins "Folette," which sports honky tonk piano that may be the French equivalent of barrelhouse, or the cabaret "Reginella" with its weird, high-pitched slide whistle, which at first sounds like a theremin precursor. For virtuoso accordion displays, head for "Polka des Virtuoses," a duo duel with a fin de siecle feel, or the pair of tracks by Medard Ferrero. "Paganini-Mazurka" sports fast downward sliding runs with much vibrato, while "La Rafale" trots out high notes, long flowing runs at supersonic speed. For a female touch, "Finette Java" features Simone Bultiauw on squeezebox, while "Dans Les Musettes de Paris," "Mon Amant de Saint-Jean" and the very European "La Der des Ders" sport women singers.
For oddities and laughs, "Sur Le Trottoir" opens with accordion and surface noise before a military band enters and the happy "Joyeux Canari" goes oom-pah with bird calls (real or somehow Memorexed?). "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" could be from a film soundtrack, complete with Hawaiian guitar, xylophone, or marimba and cheesy vocals that just beg to be caricatured. "Aubade Charmeuse" quotes "Sidewalks of New York" (or is it "Daisy?" A bit of both?) and "Chant de Berger" opens with a familiar fanfare melody and then heads for those almost joke vocals again. If you're at all interested in recordings of vintage accordion styles (scratchy 78 sound and all at times), it's hard to find fault with this collection. It's an obvious labor of love by people who know their stuff, savvy enough to program the selections so there's some variety and dynamics in the musical flow. The liner notes assume the reader already knows the basics of the artists and social-cultural context, not an unreasonable assumption given the specialist nature of these recordings (maybe that's in the notes toVol. 1). It's a minor complaint, and students of this historical epoch of French popular music and culture should be glad the collection exists as well.
