Paul Anka: Rock Swings


   


This album is an interesting listen: it is very smooth and entertaining and is worth your listening time. A strong and melodious voice is accompanied by lush orchestral arrangements. The album has great presence. There is a very nice, latent, swing jazz element throughout that is wonderfully blended with an easy listening genre. It resembles A Great Songbook of Rock Songs [perhaps personal favourites of Anka?]. This album is the modern day equivalent of a very good Sinatra performance. It is very well produced and presented.

The Chieftains: Live





If you decide to get only one Chieftains album for your collection then this is the one to get. It is lively, raucous and atmospheric and mirrors very well the sense of a good live traditional Irish music session.

hmm...I should revisit some of the Irish albums I sampled and bookmarked last year. Don't remember which Chieftains I tried back then.

More importantly, is this one in their Baroque phase and which Organ do they use ?  :P  :laugh:

Indeed. Rest in peace to Mark Hollis. What a brilliant musician. I love those last two Talk Talk albums so much.

That's a good one for sure, one of his best. Have you heard Morning Phase? It's in the same vein and I enjoy it very much too.

Talk Talk has been a recent discovery of mine, and I like the last two albums a lot.

Last night this:



Such elegant and superb music in a superb version with one caveat; That Kim Criswell is too much of a screamer/belter.
