MFSB - Love Is the Message (1974)
Rock | Individual APE+cue+covers | 202 MB | NO LOGFILE | [email protected]+covers | 80 MB
Philadelphia International/CBS Records

Often accused of being the beginning of the disco craze with "TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)", this group of as many as thirty studio musicians assembled under the leadership of songwriters/producers Gamble & Huff and their Philadelphia International label. Much like (but much larger than) Motown's infamous Funk Brothers backing musicians, they provided the necessary background to artists such as Teddy Pendergass, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, the O'Jays, the Spinners, Billy Paul and many more--the only difference being that MFSB carved out their own reps with great (mostly instrumental) albums such as this one and "Philadelphia Freedom", and the Funk Brothers (unfortunately for us) did not. Their name was taken from "Mother Father Sister Brother", and many of their early albums are long out of print and almost impossible to find, especially in lossless. I have another five albums of MFSB from the seventies, if anyone's interested.

Very much a transitional album, from what came before to what was to come. Still, the album is full of gems, such as "Subdivisions", which spoke to a couple of generations of suburban kids, the hit "New World Man", and the wonderful "Countdown". Part of a limited release.

I did a song-by-song comparison of these SHM-CD's to the MFSL (Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs) copies, and these SHM-CD copies are better, clearer, with a deeper, fuller beat.

There is not a single wasted song on this album. With tracks like "Tom Sawyer", "Limelight", "Red Barchetta", the extremely moody "Witch Hunt" and "Vital Signs"--not to mention one of Rush's better instrumentals (and a concert favorite) "YYZ", this must be counted one of the band's strongest efforts. Part of a limited release.

Rush seems to go in phases, albums that can be grouped together. The first three albums, the second three albums, and the next four, "Permanent Waves", "Moving Pictures", "Signals" and "Grace Under Pressure". Some say this album is where Rush sold out, but that seems to be the fate of every band who has commercial success. Rush never let it go to their heads. With songs such as "The Spirit of Radio", "Freewill", and the inexorably building "Jacob's Ladder", this is surely one of Rush's best albums, with both a bow to the past and an inkling of the future. Part of a limited release.

From a perspective of hit singles, this wasn't a particularly successful album, especially as the follow-up to "Wings At the Speed of Sound" (in fact, the only hit from this album was "With A Little Luck"), but for sheer listening enjoyment, this is one of McCartney's favorites among fans.

This is part of a 16-album box set from 1993, which is extremely rare. I have eleven of those sixteen albums, and will upload them if demand warrants (The original uploader evidently exchanged what he considered better quality copies for the other five, even though many of those copies don't have the Bonus Tracks). They have different covers, and, in many cases, extra or different bonus tracks. A few of these have EAC documentation, but most do not.

Some great tracks on this album, but only two that can be called hits, "My Love" and "Hi, Hi, Hi". McCartney added a second guitarist to Wings since the previous album, primarily in preparation for touring. The last four tracks did not appear on the vinyl album, and while one track, "Country Dreamer", which appeared on the original CD issue is missing, two other songs are in that place, "C Moon" and "Hi, Hi, Hi". Over 100 megs in these files are artwork.

Not only was this the first solo album from Beatles alumnus Paul McCartney, but he played every single instrument on it--in fact, except for some backing vocals from Linda McCartney, he did it all. The most enduring track on this album is "Maybe I'm Amazed", but there are others well worth listening to, especially from this audiophile copy.

I wondered what I was going to say about this album, this group. That the members are individually talented is without dispute. When I first saw the Neville Brothers in concert back in the seventies, the only description I was given is "They're from New Orleans," as if that said it all. And as true as that all is, that statement, as evocative as it seems, won't prepare you for the quality of this music. Nor should it.

Their fourth studio album, "Empire" spawned a number of singles and placed well on the Billboard charts, as well as in the hearts of the fans, especially "Silent Lucidity". This was the most commercially successful Queensryche album of the early days, eventually reaching triple-Platinum--and this DCC Gold treatment just capped the success.

One of the better of his earlier studio albums, while the songwriting was not necessarily on a par with what he'd done before, the playing was getting better all the time. Make a special effort to listen to "Heat In the Street", "Go All Night", "Evie" and "Hammerhead".

With this studio release, you get everything you've signed up for--a blues/rock tour de force. Solid, well put together, this album should not disappoint.

With this follow-up release to 1979's "Live! Go For What You Know", Pat Travers came the closest to reproducing in the studio his strengths as a live performer. A solid, well put together album, with wonderful tracks such as "Crash and Burn", "Snortin' Whiskey" and "Born Under A Bad Sign", this album made the Billboard Album Charts at #20.

The legendary Toshiba Black Triangle issues are highly sought after, and for good reason--the sound betters many of the audiophile releases of today, even considering the advance of technology. "Wings Greatest", first remastered and released in 1984, is probably one of the top three most popular--and a simple listen will tell you why.

Frampton's only massively successful album, this live double set belongs amongst those few live albums that lift themselves well above the studio versions of the same tracks--a distinction which includes releases such as Little Feat's "Waiting For Columbus", Cheap Trick's "At Budokan", Pat Travers' "Go For What You Know", and (for the early phase of their career) U2's "Under A Blood Red Sky". Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs (MFSL) has done an excellent job in the remastering process, and with such classics as "Show Me the Way", "Baby, I Love Your Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do", how could it miss?

Irond Russian Edition 07-DD525

So far as I know, this album, released 28 years after the ground-breaking "Live! Go For What You Know", makes a fitting companion piece to that album. It almost completely concentrates on tunes not included on the first live album, plus songs from later albums, including the monster "Crash and Burn", including not only tunes such as "Life In London", "Crash and Burn", and some great covers, but there are great jams in the medley of "Snortin' Whiskey/Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)" and "Born Under A Bad Sign", both of which are in excess of ten unwasted minutes. Not released in the U.S. (as yet), I'm aware of only the German, French and this edition.
