- THE HUMAN LEAGUE: DARE: 1981: SYNTHPOP: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: The Human League’s third album was a departure in style from the first two from an electronic sound to a pop friendly album that would be a synthpop classic. “Don’t You Want Me” was oddly the 4th single from the album-and became a #1 hit all over the world. While the single is one of the signature songs of the 80’s- the album is outstanding also. Other favorites- “The Things That Dreams Are Made Of”, “Seconds”, “Love Action”, “The Sounds Of The Crowd.”
- GEORGE HARRISON: GEORGE HARRISON: 1979:POP ROCK: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: “Blow Away” is one of my favorite George songs- as a single in the US it went to #16. “Faster” was written about his love of Formula 1 racing, “Not Guilty” is a song left over from his days with The Beatles- it was originally meant for the White Album. George seemed happy during this period of time. His disillusion with the music industry would soon arise with his next album though.
