Entrato a Napoli nel 1943 con la Quinta Armata, il giovane ufficiale inglese Norman Lewis si trovò stupefatto al centro della città delle signorine e degli sciuscià, scena mobile della prostituzione universale, oltre che di un’arte consumata dell’inventarsi la vita dal nulla. Come non bastasse, fu subito adibito a funzioni di polizia, quindi costretto a constatare ogni giorno le turbolenze, i fantasiosi maneggi e gli imbrogli che si celavano tra vicoli e marina. E capì subito che, di quanto gli accadeva, era il caso di prendere nota. I taccuini che Lewis tenne in quel periodo finirono poi per costituire questo libro, di cui il minimo che si può dire è che mai un occhio tanto sobrio e preciso si era posato su una realtà così naturalmente folle e sgangherata. Pubblicato in Inghilterra nel 1978, Napoli ’44 è stato definito «uno dei dieci libri da salvare sulla seconda guerra mondiale» («The Saturday Review»).

There have been many Huey Lewis & the News hits compilations released overseas, but 2006's simply named Greatest Hits is only the second U.S. comp, following Time Flies, which appeared a decade earlier. At a generous 21 tracks, Greatest Hits is not only five songs longer than Time Flies, but it's a better-chosen collection, too. It may be missing "Bad Is Bad," but it has a stronger selection of early songs, like the wonderful "Hope You Love Me Like You Say You Do," plus a better selection of latter-day songs, including Huey's duet with Gwyneth Paltrow on Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'." That doesn't mean the disc is perfect, however – although this does have a stronger representation of their earlier material, it could use just a little bit more, and the non-chronological sequencing is a bit of a headache. That said, this has all the hits and no weak songs, making it the best Huey Lewis & the News compilation yet.

In the late 1940s, Norman Lewis settled in a remote fishing village on what is now the Costa Brava, relishing a society where men regulated their lives by the sardine shoals of spring and autumn and the tuna fishing of summer, and where women kept goats and gardens, arranged marriages and made frugal ends meet.

The careers of singer Nancy Wilson and pianist Ramsey Lewis have followed parallel lines since the early 1960s. Although both began as jazz artists, they soon found greater fame and fortune in contemporary pop and have rarely looked back since. In 1982, Mr. Lewis and Ms. Wilson teamed up for a vapid, forgettable collection of smooth jazz/contemporary pop called The Two of Us. For jazz fans, the record represented all the wrong turns taken by these two obviously talented musicians.

It's hard to believe that Morning Glory Ramblers is the first full-length recording by Norman and Nancy Blake in eight years. Certainly they've been active, from playing on all 47 Down From the Mountain dates, performing on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Cold Mountain soundtracks, June Carter Cash's final album, Wildwood Flower, and various other projects. This album, recorded on the soundstage of the Western Jubilee Warehouse in Colorado Springs, is a dynamite setting for the material found here. There are 17 songs in this collection, seven of them traditional melodies, still others so old they've seldom been heard over the last century, a Hank Williams' tune, and a couple by friends of Norman and Nancy's that are so saturated in the deep country, they could have been written decades before.
