    Marty Reccomends - Carole King 'A beautiful collection'


    Carole King 'A beautiful collection'

    'The release of this compilation reminded me that in all these years collecting music to listen to, the only album of Carole's own recordings that I ever got around to buying was her Christmas album. Shame on me, but I've bought this now and will buy more later. Listening to this shows some of what I've been missing out on through all these years'.     Anon....

    Marty Recommends - Straight No Chaser (SNC)

    If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students

    “Partners,” From Barbra Streisand

    Barbra Streisand’s new album of duets only includes male singers, but it wasn’t a conscious effort to exclude females.

    “Everyone we asked was ... busy,” Streisand said. The performer almost scored one major diva: Beyonce.

    “She had her people try to do a track of one of the songs from my movie, ‘A Star is Born,’ and it just, we didn’t have the time to finish it, to get it right,” she said. “We had to release the album. Maybe someday we’ll do a duet because she’s so great.”

    “Partners,” released Tuesday, features Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, John Legend and Babyface, who produced the album.

    Marty Recommends - The Breeze

    Eric Clapton has often stated that JJ Cale is one of the single most important figures in rock history, a sentiment echoed by many of his fellow musicians.

    Cale s influence on Clapton and many of today s artists cannot be understated. To honor JJ s legacy, a year after his passing, Clapton gathered a group of like-minded friends and musicians for Eric Clapton & Friends - The Breeze (An Appreciation of JJ Cale).

    With performances by Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Derek Trucks and Don White, the album features 16 beloved JJ Cale songs and is named for the 1972 single "Call Me The Breeze."
