The Bee Gees, Lenny Kravitz, Reviews, News
I received two CDs to review today and have already come to a conclusion:
Love Is The Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-1970
Rating: ** out of *****
I suppose there are songs on it that would appeal to fans of that era, but personally, I have no need for yet another compilation CD from any band. Enough is enough. If we like the music we already own it (imo).
The Bee Gees - "Greatest"
Rating: *** out of *****
Ok, so I just said above I had no need for another compilation CD, but this is the first time in my life I have actually LISTENED to The Bee Gees and I'm a bit surprised at how much I like them (if only Barry's voice were a few octaves lower....)
I am familiar with all their hits (like it or not I think most people are). BUT there were some songs on here I'd never heard before that were very enjoyable. Plus you can never hear Stayin Alive too many times! Come on seriously, you have to like that song! John Travolta dancing in a white suit - what more needs to be said? (back me up here, Becky!)
News taken from Martin's Weekly "80's Nut Newsletter"
1. Lenny Kravitz has been finishing work on his eighth studio album, It's Time For A Love Revolution, due out Feb. 8th. Kravitz is also expected to perform two songs during NBC's New Years Eve with Carson Daly.
2. Rik Emmett of Triumph and Michael Shotton have signed a recording deal with Escape Music Ltd. for their project Airtime. Their new album will be titled Liberty Manifesto when released on Nov. 19th.
(if anyone can guess what Rik Emmett and Lenny Kravitz have in common I will post a pic of myself dressed in a tiger print lyrca outfit with a David-Lee Roth hair-do and David Bowie boots from 1982)
