On September 18, 2015, Eagle Rock Entertainment released What’s Going On – Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 by Taste. This simultaneous release on DVD, Blu-ray, 2LP, CD, and Digital Formats represents the first-ever video release of this legendary performance. What’s Going On – Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival tells the story of Eire’s seminal rock band Taste. Formed in Cork, Ireland in 1966 by Rory Gallagher, Taste had a brief but influential career, releasing two studio albums in 1969 and 1970 and disbanding shortly after their legendary appearance at the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival — the centerpiece of this film…
Two CD set from the Pop diva, celebrating 25 years since she released her debut solo album. When 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' became an MTV and radio smash in 1984, Lauper went from strength to strength, releasing best-selling albums (She's So Unusual, True Colours, A Hat Full Of Stars and more) and genre-defining hits like 'She Bop', 'Money Changes Everything', 'Time After Time' and 'True Colours'. Though her output since the '80s has been sporadic, she has achieved critical acclaim and adoration from her fans for two and a half decades. This double disc collection contains all her hits, album tracks, fan favorites and so much more. Experience Cyndi in all her True Colours on this, her most comprehensive collection to date! 36 tracks.
There’s a riot going on. You don’t need me, or Yo La Tengo, to tell you that. These are dark times, in our heads as much as in the streets. It’s easy to lose contact with the ground. Confusion and anxiety intrude into daily life and cause you to lose your compass. There are times that call for anthems, something to lift you out of your slump and put fire in your feet. And sometimes what is needed is a balm, a sound that will wrap around you and work out the knots in your neck.
Competing nicely with the earlier Time After Time: The Best of Cyndi Lauper, Columbia/Legacy's The Essential Cyndi Lauper features most of the '80s icon's big hits as well as lesser-known album tracks. Considering the inconsistent nature of Lauper's albums, it is nice to find tracks like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "True Colors" packaged alongside "Sisters of Avalon" and "Who Let in the Rain." Most Lauper fans will already own these songs, but for casual fans, The Essential Cyndi Lauper will do the trick.
