Jeff Buckley

Mystery White Boy

    This classic album by American singer-songwriter JEFF BUCKLEY, was recorded 'live' between 1995-1996 & originally released in 2000. The album is a x12 song compilation of live recordings, that Buckey's mother, Mary Guibert compiled from DAT recordings made while Jeff was touring the "Grace" album.

    David Bowie

    Reality

      'Reality', the 23rd album of David Bowie (2003) followed up on the heavily successful formula of Heathen, combining infuences of Bowie’s Seventies’ past (say, from Heroes to Scary Monsters) with a contemporary new millennium vibe. David produced this album together with Tony Visconti, the dream team that also made Heathen a true work of art, resulting in yet another sure fire production and memorable songs. The album made it to the top 30 of the Billboard 200, and set the course for great Bowie albums to follow.

      Following the success of "King Of Rock", "Raising Hell" (1986) raised more than just a massive revenue stream by selling over three million albums worldwide. It’s a well known fact that the record, produced by rock / hip hop production pioneer Rick Rubin, raised the bar for hip hop albums in general. Musically it indeed raises hell, being crammed to the brim with hard-hitting hooks, loops, samples, scratches, inventive tong-twisting braggadocio and catchy choruses. Too many classics on this one: “Peter Piper” with the massive Bob James bell drum sample “It’s Tricky” (putting The Knack’s “My Sharona” sample to extremely good use) and the song that popularized a certain brand of shoes in the Hip Hop community, “My Adidas”. However the album’s flag bearer is undoubtedly “Walk This Way” which literally rendered Aerosmith’s original version obsolete. Viewing from an eighties hip hop perspective, the collaboration with Aerosmith seemed rather unusual to say the least, but at the same time it proved that hip hop and rock are merely next door neighbours. The album’s timeless quality surfaces in its ability to bring together masses of fans of both genres.

      The Clash

      Combat Rock

        "On the surface of things, Combat Rock appears to be a retreat from the sprawling stylistic explorations of London Calling and Sandinista! The pounding arena rock of "Should I Stay or Should I Go" makes the Clash sound like an arena rock band, and much of the album boasts a muscular, heavy sound courtesy of producer Glyn Johns. But things aren't quite that simple. Combat Rock contains heavy flirtations with rap, funk, and reggae, and it even has a cameo by poet Allen Ginsberg - if this album is, as it has often been claimed, the Clash's sellout effort, it's a very strange way to sell out. Even with the infectious, dance-inflected new wave pop of "Rock the Casbah" leading the way, there aren't many overt attempts at crossover success, mainly because the group is tearing in two separate directions. Mick Jones wants the Clash to inherit the Who's righteous arena rock stance, and Joe Strummer wants to forge ahead into black music. The result is an album that is nearly as inconsistent as Sandinista!, even though its finest moments -- "Should I Stay or Should I Go," "Rock the Casbah," "Straight to Hell" - illustrate why the Clash were able to reach a larger audience than ever before with the record." - Allmusic.
