While virtually unknown in the U.S., pop singer Jennifer Rush achieved superstar status as an expatriate in Europe, selling millions of records and releasing a string of hit singles notable for their booming, dance-rock arrangements and Rush's powerful voice. She released a series of songs that made her a star in Europe, including "Into My Dreams," "Come Give Me Your Hand," "25 Lovers," and "Ring of Ice." In 1985, Rush scored a massive European hit with "The Power of Love," which became one of the longest-running chart-toppers in U.K. history. She continued to retain a large European following throughout the rest of the '80s and '90s, collaborating with writers such as Desmond Child and Diane Warren and performing with high-profile acts like Michael Bolton and Placido Domingo. Despite selling millions of albums abroad, most of her albums have not been released in the U.S.
2007 release of a 3 CD box set that showcases the American singer/songwriter's best recordings, including all of her singles released between 1982 and 1991, her favorite album tracks, 16 extended song versions, 15 songs released on CD for the first time ever and five tracks that have been previously unreleased in any form…
Them Moose Rush is a progressive rock trio from Bjelovar, Croatia. Combining retro with modern, recording albums live and bursting with crazy jams, Them Moose Rush is a genuine riff machine constantly pushing forward and reinventing listeners perception of a standard rock and roll trio.
Singer/guitarist Nikola Runjavec sounds like Mike Patton on helium, and gives off an exuberant if slightly scary vibe, like the strange kid in the playground inviting you behind the bike sheds to play with matches. The irreverent, offhand inventiveness of Faith No More is actually not a bad reference for these guys, but their restless math/prog/metal sound is very much their own.
Throughout the years, there have been a number of tribute albums dedicated to the music of Rush, each has put an interesting spin on the band's extensive catalog of music. Over the past year, the Brazilian rock project Fleesh, formed by Gabby Vessoni and Celo Oliveira, have been releasing several Rush cover songs on YouTube, including their moving version of The Pass. Spirited by the overwhelming positive reception of their Rush covers, the band has just announced the release of "The Next Hemisphere". This is one of those rare attempt that succeeds amazingly in covering some of the most difficult yet moving Rush songs, approaching the material with great respect, preserving certain passages and licks very close to the originals, but adding their own perspective on others.
