A collection of later Donna Summer material, including such song as "On the Radio," "I Feel Love," and "Bad Girls." Although disco was beginning to peak, Summer was riding high, dominating the R&B and pop charts. In some ways, these songs were more varied than her pre-'77 cuts, because only "Love to Love You Baby," from her Oasis material, was a major hit.
French trumpeter Erik Truffaz has been a mover and shaker on the European creative improvisational scene since the mid-'90s. With the release of The Mask (a compilation of three previously released recordings: Out of a Dream, The Dawn, and Bending New Corners), Revisité (a DJ dance remix of The Mask), and 2002's forward-sounding Mantis, Truffaz became one of the most popular electronic jazz trumpeters to hit North America since Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer charged forth with Khmer and Solid Ether…

The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs is the fifth live album by British band Genesis and was released in 1993, having been recorded during their 1992 tour for We Can't Dance. The album's title refers to a lyric in two songs, "I Can't Dance" on the previous volume and "I Know What I Like" on this one. While its companion piece, the preceding The Way We Walk, Volume One: The Shorts contained the band's recent pop hits, The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs focused on the longer songs performed during this period. The Way We Walk, Volume Two: The Longs reached No. 1 in the UK where it remained in the charts for 9 weeks, and No. 20 in the U.S. It remains the band's last No. 1 album.
The Way We Walk, Volume One: The Shorts is the fourth live album by British band Genesis. Eight songs were recorded live on the 1992 We Can't Dance tour, with the remaining three recorded on the 1986–87 Invisible Touch tour. The Way We Walk, Volume One: The Shorts reached No. 3 in the UK where it remained in the charts for 18 weeks, and No.35 in the US, going gold.
