Whatever the style of the song, Joe Cocker delivers his adaptions with relentless spirit and professionalism. This brilliant collection of blues, ballads, and rock 'n roll explodes in 5.1 Digital Surround - transforming each unique presentation into a whole new music experience. Grammy Award winning artist Joe Cocker has been making hit records since the 1960's, and Night Calls is no exception. Cocker continues his tradition of doing powerful reditions of popular songs, but putting a little more soul & spirit in his versions. Clapton's "Can't Find My Way Home", Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me", and the Beatles' "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" all get the treatment. The stunning 5.1 mix creates more room for Cocker's heartfelt vocals. 5.1
George Martin and his son Giles began work on Love after getting permission from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison (the latter two representing John Lennon and George Harrison, respectively). In discussing the project, Giles Martin noted that elements were utilized from recordings in The Beatles catalogue, "the original four tracks, eight tracks and two tracks and used this palette of sounds and music to create a soundbed." George Martin also promised a prize to those who could crack a "code" found in the album. Giles Martin said in an interview that he was afraid they wouldn't get the green light to do the project, so he started by making digital back-ups of the original multi-track recordings just to get started on the project. He also said that he and his father mixed more music than was eventually released, including "She's Leaving Home" and a version of "Girl" that he was particularly fond of. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the two surviving members of The Beatles, have responded very positively to the album. McCartney noted that "This album puts The Beatles back together again, because suddenly there's John and George with me and Ringo". Starr commended George and Giles Martin for the album and said that the album is "really powerful for me and I even heard things I'd forgotten we'd recorded."
The Moody Blues' second album was also their first of what would be a succession of "concept" albums. Inspired by the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper and utilizing the London Festival Orchestra primarily for epic instrumental interludes between songs, Days of Future Passed moved the Birmingham band away from its early R&B roots (as displayed on its debut album with soon-to-depart future Wings member Denny Laine) into uncharted rock territory, making them the early pioneers of both classical and progressive rock. The concept of the 1967 release was very simple, tracing a day in the life from dawn to night, from awakening to sleep. The seven tracks spawned two hit singles--"Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin" (which hit No. 2 four years after the LP's original release) and a prog-rock cottage industry.–Bill Holdship
