This is a fine CD of Blues Brothers material, featuring the original Blues Brothers Band and frontman Larry Thurston, performing at Montreux Jazz Festival on July 12, 1989. From the late '80s through the early 90's, the Blues Brothers Band was a popular touring act throughout Europe, with Mr. Thurston doing a fine job on lead vocals. None of the other 90's Blues Brothers frontmen (Dan Ackroyd, John Goodman, Jim Belushi) appear on this CD or in this Line-Up. Not exactly "essential", but a good performance of the tour band during this period of the band's history.

Always a beautifully measured and understated performer, the power in her voice still comes when she’s at her rawest and most vulnerable. Taking inspiration from her recent discovery of the wistful 70s Brazilian music of Milton Nascimento together with the sci-fi girl group harmonies and empowerment of Destiny’s Child, her current sound is both delicate and powerful. Lianne La Havas is an award ceremony regular, nominated for the Grammies, the Mercury Music Prize, the Ivor Novello, Brits and MOBOs. An artist known for two albums of the most finely-wrought jazz-influenced neo soul this side of Sade. But now, eight years and two albums after first appearing onto the music scene, La Havas wants us to know the real her.

Jerry Williams’—aka Swamp Dogg—first love was country music, listening to it as a Navy family kid growing up in Portsmouth, Virginia. “My granddaddy, he just bought country records out the asshole,” Swamp remembers. “Every Friday when he came home from the Navy yard he’d stop off and get his records, like ‘Mule Train’ by Frankie Laine, or ‘Riders in the Sky’ by Vaughn Monroe.” His first time performing on stage, in fact, was a country song at a talent show when he was six years old: “I did Red Foley’s version of ‘Peace in the Valley.’”

Despite its name, Super 20: Hit Disco '81 isn't really a disco compilation as the genre faded out into the mainstream, at least generally. But is is a powerful comp of music from late 1980 and early 1981, with the placement of Blondie's "Rapture" here. This was released in West Germany by the Ariola label and is a vinyl rip.

O.V. Wright's secular career started off in 1964 with "That's How Strong My Love Is." It was written by Roosevelt Jamison initially responsible for discovering gospel group the Harmony Echoes, which brought forth both Wright and James "Dark End of the Street" Carr. Originally a B-side, it's included on this album as the closing third of a searing medley. And again, Wright's delivery proves to be in the same league as the more famous version by Otis Redding. Nothing much was gained though by Wright's association with the song. Redding's success awakened Backbeat owner Don Robey, who claimed Wright as his "property." Credits to all the artists' later recordings invariably mention a certain "D. Malone." Since it's the same Robey under a false name, it stands as a painful reminder of just how "protective" the label owner was…

With Step Up, Tower of Power forges on into the next decade of the 21st century, while keeping to its continuous hardcore tour schedule and ongoing reinvigoration with the continual addition of new talent, most notably the phenomenal young lead vocalist, Marcus Scott, among many others. Marcus replaced TOP’s longtime lead singer, Ray Greene, who makes his final appearance with the band on Step Up. Also taking his bows on the new album is 30-year TOP veteran bassist Francis ‘Rocco’ Prestia, who is stepping back from life on the road and whose driving fingerstyle funk is ably replaced on tour by Marc Van Wageningen.

Gene Chandler's second LP for Brunswick suffers from comparisons to its predecessor, but consider how difficult it must have been to top an album padded with several tracks previously released as Constellation singles. The two singles here, "Those Were the Good Old Days" and "There Was a Time," are as good as anything he'd recorded for the label. Though the titles evoke similar themes, they're radically different songs. The first is (as expected) a good-time nostalgia tune with a sweet female chorus, but the second is a torrid horn-driven salute to the best dances of recent years; one looks back to the heady Chicago soul of the Impressions, while the other looks ahead to the increasingly intense urban funk of Curtis Mayfield…

Best known as a staff songwriter under Willie Mitchell at Hi Records and the husband of Hi star Ann Peebles, Don Bryant was also a fine, underappreciated singer in his own right. In his soul recordings of the '60s, Bryant showed off a passionate style that fused the punch of Wilson Pickett with the smoother but emotionally incisive warmth of Joe Tex, as captured on his 1969 album Precious Soul.
