The Glitter Band's fourth U.K. album was also the first to be marketed under the band's new name – the G Band, a bid for artistic credibility that unfortunately overlooked one crucial point. It was the missing "litter" that most people liked. But still, ten songs find the band manfully attempting to pursue the likes of Smokie (and the Sweet) into full-on adult rock territory and, if you overlook the group's heritage, much of it works…

This double-CD set covers the career of the Glitter Band, who began their career as Gary Glitter's backing band and quickly made the transition to singles act to score a variety of chart hits in Europe during the mid-'70s. All of those hits, plus a copious outpouring of album tracks, B-sides, and outtakes, are represented on Solid Silver: The Ultimate Glitter Band, Vol. 1. At their best, the Glitter Band hit the same combination of pop hooks and rock attitude that typified the best glam songs: "Angel Face" mixes glam chants and a stomping beat to powerful effect and "Goodbye My Love" benefits from a dynamic guitar-driven arrangement that highlights the drama of its lyrics…

Funk, Soul, Quiet Storm | Label: Mercury/PolyGram | # 522 457-2 | Time: 01:18:00

A collection from the Mercury funk lineup that covers the hits from the first five Gap Band albums. Every major hit that they had is included here. What one might notice is that all of the major hits ("You Dropped a Bomb on Me," "Burn Rubber on Me," "Early in the Morning," and "I Don't Believe You Want to Get up and Dance") all sound surprisingly similar. This may or may not be a large surprise to everyone, but the bright note about their similarity is that the basic riffs and rhythms that they all use are extremely catchy. The energy that the Gap Band exudes in the midst of producing a song is stunning, and this compilation displays that to the fullest extent. For a basic introduction to the forms of funk that the Gap Band followed, this album would certainly suit any given listener. For those who only need one Gap Band album in their collection, this one also fits the bill perfectly. For die-hard fans who already have all of the band's albums, this one would probably only really serve as a summary.

Joy Division is one of the definitive bands from the rock culture. With their dark poetic inception and a sound marked by a new way of thinking about how music should be created, the Manchester band served as a model for countless artists. Today, just as it marks 35 years of the death of Ian Curtis (the legendary singer and lyricist of the group) The Many Faces Of Joy Division shows the hidden world behind the group, their rare recordings, side projects, their influences and the Manchester scene where the band bloomed. With a wonderful cover art, remastered sound and extensive liner notes, The Many Faces of Joy Division is an album not only for fans but for anyone who wants to understand the influence (and enjoy the music) of a truly transcendent bad, which made beauty out of sadness.

Perhaps second to only Freddie Mercury, Gary Glitter was the most flamboyant figure of the early '70s U.K. glam rock movement. With a bouffant hairdo, snazzy clothes, high platform boots, and hairy chest exposed, to the delight of his female fans, Glitter rocked his way to the top of the British charts, enjoying a string of big hit singles. This 32-tracks official compilation is a fine introduction to one of glam rock's leading artists. Every track is good/great/wonderful. You can't go wrong with such glam standards as "Rock & Roll Pt. 2", "Do You Wanna Touch Me", "Leader Of The Gang", "Doing Alright With the Boys", and "Oh Yes! You're Beautiful", which are all included here in their mascara-caked glory. This 2 CD set is the best Gary Glitter compilation on the market.

.The German label CPO, consistently dedicated to underappreciated music, has brought along many recordings of unfamiliar works ranging in status from central to the literature to wholly unworthy of revival. One of the most distinguished, and consequential, projects that CPO has undertaken is its recording of the complete Symphonies Concertantes of Johann Christian Bach as performed by the Hanover Band under Anthony Halstead. Recorded at Rosslyn Hill Chapel in Hampstead between 1995 and 2001, this series was originally released in the form of six single discs. Sometimes listeners complain that beyond the "big three" – Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven – they simply cannot distinguish one classical-era composer from another. Johann Christian Bach's cycle of Symphonies Concertante distinguishes him from his contemporaries almost more than any of the other musical genres he put his hand to.
