Tiger In The Rain is an elegant showcase for the jazzy, romantic music of Michael Franks. The singer/songwriter creates a smooth, cool mood on standout tracks such as “Hideaway” and the title song, while “Jardin Botanico” evokes Latin sensuality.
As the title suggests Live 'N' Kickin' is West, Bruce & Laing recorded live. The extended jams show off the abundant musicianship and soloing prowess of the trio in a poignant culmination, since the band broke up shortly before its release in 1974.
This second album by the supergroup trio formed by founders of Mountain and Cream continues mining the harder side of the blues that gave those bands their foundations, but it also explores softer, expressive ballads like "November Song."
Little Stevie is dead, long live Stevie Wonder! Released in 1966, this fifth album shows the beginning of Wonder's development into a mature recording artist. Backed by the Funk Brothers, the album futures such memorable tracks as "Nothing's too Good For My Baby," "Teach Me Tonight"and of course… the #1 single title track.
Recorded in just thirty hours, Shake Down was released in September 1967. This debut studio album by the British Blues Rock band Savoy Brown is a collection of blues covers. It features songs penned by Willie Dixon, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker or Freddie King. The band was formed and led by legendary blues guitarist Kim Simmonds.
After their breakup in 1971, British Hard Rock Pioneers went right back to what they know best, with Paul Rodgers bearing his blues-Rock to Paul Kossof's gloomy electric guitar. Tracks like "Little Bit of Love," "Soldier Boy," and "Travelling Man" come out on top as some of the band's most emotive material, proving that had no real effect on their chemistry.
