3 classic philly albums from late 70's reissued on 2cds
This is an excellent CD if you're into orchestrations of pop or rock music. Andrew Powell And The Philharmonic Orchestra do justice to some of The Alan Parsons Project's most recognizable songs, and did this before this became 'de rigeur' in the late 80's through now…
When ex-Impressions leader Jerry Butler joined forces with Philadelphia writer-producers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, soul music history was made. There's not a clinker on these two records; that they hit #29 and #41 on the pop charts, respectively, each with a host of pop and R&B hit singles, is testament to their widespread appeal. Jerry, currently the Commissioner of Cook County, has graciously lent copious quotes to Gene Sculatti's notes on our exclusive Collectors' Choice Music release…these two albums belong in every library.
"Into The Fire" is the fifth studio album by the Canadian rock artist Bryan Adams. Released on March 30, 1987 through A&M Records, and the follow up album to the chart topping Reckless. Into the Fire peaked at number 7 on the US Billboard 200 chart and reached equally high positions in charts worldwide.
"Burning Up The Night" was the last release. And that was in 1992. This cd is mostly keyboards and less guitar than what fans are used to, but still is catchy with lots of hooks. As with all their albums, it's impossible to pick a favorite. For Flash & The Pan fans an absolute must. The sound is a bit different from their prior outings but still astonishing. If you see it listed, get it, since it's hard to come by and that chance may never come again.
