RECOMMENDED DISCS OF FEBRUARY


NEW RELEASES

 

Eric Carmen's long waited new album has been released at last under Pioneer LDC, Japan. It includes "Almost Paradise" (duet with Janey Clewer) and featuring the great guitar works by Bruce Gaitsch. And you may find out the name of ex Raspberries members, that is, Wally Bryson plays the guitar on this album. I proudly recommend this album as one of good Power-Pop Albums in late 90's. Why don't you buy this CD, if you can believe my recommendation which I gave you until today on this webpage.

 My impression towards Kevyn Lettau has been one of the fine smooth jazz influenced and bosanova influenced female singers before listening to her brand-new album titled "The Language Of Flowers". She made me so much surprised because her music in general on this album is very pop! As a matter of fact, 1st tune "The Language Of Love" sounds like one of today's dancing tune... However something is very special for her melodies. Yes, This CD may be a kind of keystone for new style of "Adult Contemporary Music" towards millennium. I dare to say this album must be her best album.

NEW ARTISTS SELECTION

 

Promotion began as a 8 piece rock funk group 1984. In the beginning the name of the group was Mark 5. Four horns, drums, guitar,keyboards and bass. Peter was the lead singer and played the guitar. Anders played the bass, Håkan played alto saxophone and Jocke was the lead trumpet player. 1986 the band changed into a five piece rock band and took the name Promotion. Crille joined at the drums and Per at the keyboards. The band has since then had a lot of constellations, sometimes with horns and sometimes without. But its always been the same people who had come and go. 1995 was the year when Anders built his studio, this was the turning point for Promotion. Now they had the opportunity to record as much as they wanted. December 1997 was the first record , "Not for Sale" released on their own label. This Swedish band's sound style is like Toto's or Chicago's one. Good Melodies here and there. If they will pay attention to the keyboard arrangement in general, they will be much better. In anyway, this album is worth being given to be promoted by using my website....
