ROGER MCGUINN - ROGER MCGUINN

Roger McGuinn - Roger McGuinnAfter leaving The Byrds, front man Roger McGuinn released a self-titled solo album to great critical acclaim in 1973. Going back to basics, McGuinn does what he does best: his unique recipe of energetic Folk Rock combined with his strong voice delivers a compelling album.

His newfound artistic freedom didn't stop him from inviting friends like Bob Dylan on "I'm So Restless", frequent Dylan collaborator Jacques Levy as co-songwriter and his old The Byrds band mates on "My New Woman" to appear on his album. Even Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys joins in on "Draggin'" and David Crosby can also be heard on this album.

ISLEY BROTHERS - 3 + 3

Isley Brothers - 3+33+3 (1973) was a major turning point for the Isley Brothers. Original members Ronald, O'Kelly and Rudolph Isley added cousin Chris Jasper on keys and younger brothers Ernie on guitar and Marvin on bass.

Album opener "That Lady" became a hit overnight, their interpretation of The Doobie Brothers' "Listen To The Music" is the pinnacle of contagious and "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts became a true soul staple ever since the Isleys laid it on wax.
