RECOMMENDED DISCS OF MAY, 1997


 

JOSEPH WILLIAMS / THREE <ACM Rating: >

 

Joseph Williams' 3rd solo album "3" is slotted to be on sale! I believe that you must be surprised to see the musicians credit on the album because you can find all the members' name of Toto; Mike Porcaro, David Paich, Steve Porcaro,Steve Lukather and further 2 ex Toto Vocalist, that is, Bobby Kimball and Fergie Frederiksen. That means all the vocalists of Toto are singing together on this album! In addition, Jay Graydon , Bill Champlin and Ned Doheny are also supporting Joseph!
The sound of this album is more solid than his 2nd solo "I Am Alive" in general. And Joseph covers his own composition "Man In Me" originally performed by Peter Cetera and also covers Beatles' "In My Life" on this album, which is live tracks in May 96 at The Desperado Tokyo.

SHEENA EASTON / FREEDOM <ACM Rating: >

 

Sheena Easton has just completed her album featuring her debut hit "Modern Girl" 1997 version only for Japanese music market. The sound taste of this album is almost similar as her last international releasing hit album "My Cheire" (1995) produced by Danny Diante, Chris Neil, Glen Ballard and David Foster. Clif Magness produeces 5 songs on this album and you can also listen to the cover version of "Foolish Heart" originally performed by Steve Perry of Journey.

VENICE / BORN AND RAISED <ACM Rating: >

 

"Venice" of Lennon Brothers in Venice, California has just released their acoustic 2nd album with good harmony vocals. "Venice" had released their debut album "Venice" under Modern Records distributed by Atlantic Records in 1990, which was more rock album. In 1995, "Garage Demos" (Part 1: Slow Stuff and Part2: Fast Stuff) has released only for their crazy fans. 2 years after, they have completed formal 2nd album at last.This is it!
