Another great personal Dylan album, Desire (1976) captures Dylan at the beginning of his Rolling Thunder Revue era. Folk, Rock, Middle Eastern themes and epic narratives, the album is a Pop staple throughout. Its best known track and album opener "Hurricane", is quickly followed by the hypnotic "Isis" and breezy "Mozambique".
When Paul Desmond joined on alto sax, the newly formed quintet recorded several live dates which resulted in We're All Together Again For The First Time(1973). The album contains a definitive live version of Brubeck's classic "Take Five".
England had The Police, United States had Blondie... and Argentina had Soda Stereo, one of the greatest bands of the new wave explosion and without any doubt one of the most important in the history of Rock in Spanish.
Their debut was a refreshing breath of modernity and smart lyrics: the album contained strong attacks against the lack of control of the consumer society, and it was sarcastically launched at a local fast food chain. Soon it was awarded Platinum in Argentina and Peru, and Double Platinum in Chile, making it an essential title to understand modern music in Latin America.
This Music On Vinyl release is the first vinyl reissue of the band worldwide since 1995.
As a drummer, flutist and keyboardist, Joe Vitale's first album featured his own playing on multiple instruments. Augmented by guitar fireworks of former band mate Joe Walsh, Rick Derringer and Phil Keaggy, Vitale delivered an album filled to the brim with catchy rhythms and playful songwriting.
Ron and Howard Albert produced the album, whom were also responsible for Derek and the Dominoes' Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, the Allman Brothers' Eat A Peach, and other legendary albums.
The Meters "People Say" was originally released as a single on Reprise records in 1974. The B-side however, the infectious "Funky Meters' Soul", has never been released on vinyl at all. The track was recorded during the sessions that resulted in their third album Struttin' (1970), however it never made the album.
