In a very poor zone of New York, April Burns and her boyfriend, the Afro-American Bobby, are preparing to receive April's family for thanksgiving dinner. While Bobby tries to borrow a suit for himself, April realizes that her stove is broken. She tries desperately to find a neighbor that can let her cook the turkey, since she does not want to fail (again) with her family. Meanwhile, in a suburb of Pennsylvania, her dysfunctional family is preparing to travel to New York. While driving, the relationship between the Burns and their black-sheep April is disclosed through the conversations between her father Jim, her resented mother Joy, her brother, her sister and her grandmother.

One of the most popular soul trios of their time, both at home in the US and here in the UK where they toured frequently, the Detroit Emeralds' Westbound 45s maintained a constant presence in the soul and pop charts on both sides of the pond until 1974, when the original group split up. All in all, the group released 11 US singles between 1969 and 1975. Most (but not all) of the songs on those singles have been reissued before, but 'I Think Of You' marks the first time that all of the group's A-sides and B-sides have been presented - in the order of their release and as they were originally heard - on one CD - with several mono-only 45 mixes appearing in a digital format for the first time.

The Wonder of You is a sequel in the truest sense: it delivers more of the same thing that made the 2015 album If I Can Dream into a surprise hit around the globe. The gimmick behind both of the albums is taking original Elvis Presley vocal performances and setting them to brand-new orchestral arrangements from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The Wonder of You isn't as splashy as its predecessor, lacking duets with Michael Bublé and Il Volo (the bonus track, "Just Pretend," does feature Helene Fischer), and it also doesn't contain quite as many rockers as If I Can Dream.

While well known amongst serious jazz fans in the U.S., the talented Ken Peplowski had been relatively unknown in Japan, until Tetsuo Hara of Venus Records introduced him with the smash hit "Memories of You" in 2006. It received not only the Gold Disc recognition, but was also awarded the Best Engineered Album in 2006 by Swing Journal. Its audiophile credentials were further enhanced when Jazz Critique Magazine chose it as the Third Best Sounding Jazz Disc of 2006.

For his fourth solo album following the breakup of the much beloved Screaming Trees, Mark Lanegan delves into the always fraught waters of the all-covers album. Often a stylistic mish-mash of the artist's favorite songs done so much in their original styles that the singer's true personality is lost, the covers album is dangerous territory, but Lanegan navigates it beautifully. Crucially, „I’ll Take Care of You“ finds Lanegan performing the work of other singers and songwriters in his own style rather than adapting himself to suit the songs. Therefore, tunes by 1960s folkies Fred Neil ('Badidah') and Tim Hardin ('Shiloh Town') sit comfortably next to efforts by 1980s blues-punks the Gun Club ('Carry Home') and the Leaving Trains ('Creeping Coastline of Lights'), as well as a handful of traditional folk and country songs.

Gil Scott-Heron's 1971 album Pieces of a Man set a standard for vocal artistry and political awareness that few musicians will ever match. His unique proto-rap vocal style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists, and nowhere is his style more powerful than on the classic "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised." Even though the media – the very entity attacked in this song – has used, reused, and recontextualized the song and its title so many times, the message is so strong that it has become almost impossible to co-opt. Musically, the track created a formula that modern hip-hop would follow for years to come: bare-bones arrangements featuring pounding basslines and stripped-down drumbeats. Although the song features plenty of outdated references to everything from Spiro Agnew and Jim Webb to The Beverly Hillbillies, the force of Scott-Heron's well-directed anger makes the song timeless. More than just a spoken word poet, Scott-Heron was also a uniquely gifted vocalist. On tracks like the reflective "I Think I'll Call It Morning" and the title track, Scott-Heron's voice is complemented perfectly by the soulful keyboards of Brian Jackson.
