A strange lost relic from Beach Boy Bruce Johnston – recorded in the mid 70s with some sweet AOR production work by Gary Usher. The album's actually a fantastic slice of late 60s sunny LA pop – and features work by Curt Boettcher, Chad Stuart, and a few other lost pop luminaries – working with Johnston in a compressed style of pop that's got some nice similarities to the better 70s work of the Beach Boys. The album includes great remakes of "Deirdre" and "Disney Girls", a strangely nice version of "I Write The Songs" (actually written by Johnston himself!) – and the tracks "Rendezvous", "Won't Somebody Dance With Me", "Pipeline", and "Thank You Baby". A great bit of overlooked soft rock from the 70s! 2 bonus tracks on this Japanese CD edition: single and 12" disco versions of "Pipeline". (Blu Spec CD.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Richard Page and his Pages group come on with a bit more force here on this second sweet set from the 70s – but they're still working strongly in the soulful blend of AOR rock and fusion they delivered on their debut! Pages have a vibe that's a bit like Loggins & Messina or Boz Scaggs at ... CD

The continuing evolution of the great Jess Roden – an lesser-known 70s talent who emerged from the jazz rock scene in the UK at the end of the 60s – but who's working here in a much more sophisticated mode! Jess always had a lot of soul in his style right from the start – that ... CD

One of the best late 60s albums by the Ventures – a lot more hard-wailing than usual – and done with a fair bit of influence from funk and soul music too! The title cut gives the album away nicely – as it's a cover of Cliff Nobles' classic funky 45 "The Horse", done ... CD

Great work from The Peanut Butter Conspiracy – even tighter and more groove-happy than previous records – with a very hip blend of mod soul influences underneath their Sunshine Pop sound! There's a lot of Hammond bubbling up in the rhythms here, and the drums are nicely forceful too ... CD

A reworked version of David Bowie's Next Day album – presented here with a full bonus CD of extra material, and a DVD too! The style's darker and edgier than we've heard Bowie in years – kind of in "Joe The Lion" territory at times – given the fuzzy use of guitar, and ... CD

Totally wonderful sounds from Laurance Vanay (aka Jacqueline Thibault) – an album that's heavy on keyboard sounds throughout – including these really moody Hammond organ lines that are handled in a style that's a lot closer to work on Fender Rhodes! The album's neither jazz nor prog ... CD
