- HALL & OATES: VOICES: 1980: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: This album had four hit singles- How Does It Feel To Be Back #30, a cover of You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ #12, Kiss On My List #1 and You Make My Dreams #5. Hall and Oates with this album took over their own production instead of having outside producers comes in. This was their biggest selling album to date- and while I like this album a lot it was the beginning of their dreaded formula years. They hit the jackpot with this album and wore it out by repeating it over and over. Their next three albums would be huge and each one would become less interesting. A non-single on this album “Everytime You Go Away” would later become a #1 hit by Paul Young.
- BUDDY HOLLY: THE COMPLETE BUDDY HOLLY: RECORD 4: CLOVIS, NEW MEXICO AND ON TO NEW YORK: 1979: Look At Me, Think It Over, Heartbeat, It’s So Easy, Well..Alright, Wishing, True Love Ways, Raining In My Heart and It Doesn’t Matter Anymore among the classics on this record from the six volume Complete Buddy Holly.
- IRON CITY HOUSEROCKERS: HAVE A GOOD TIME BUT GET OUT ALIVE! : 1980; 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Love So Tough showed great promise- and their second album- delivers big time. Great rock and roll from the Springsteen school. Little Steven arranged five of the songs. Ian Hunter another. Old Man Bar, Junior’s Bar, Hypnotized , Don’t Let Them Push You Around, Blondie among my favorites but really the whole album.
