Julian Lennon- Help Yourself

Van Halen- Fair Warning- Eddie & Alex Van Halen

Van Halen's April 1981 album "Fair Warning" is easily the band's most overlooked effort in the original David Lee Roth era; the most Eddie Van Halen-dominated album until the mega-hit "1984".

Blues Brothers John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd- June 1979

I would wager that imitators of the Blues Brothers, blues harp-blowing Elwood Blues and his singing hand-standing brother Joliet Jake, are second in number only to Elvis impersonators ever since Briefcase Full of Blues   topped the US sales…

Ann Wilson- Hope and Glory

On Ann Wilson's birthday in 2007, here was a present from her : a highly personal solo album of carefully chosen covers, Hope and Glory,  at a time when US wars were raging in two separate countries with no end in sight. And the "A" guest list of performers with whom Ann duets  include no less than Elton John, k.d.lang, Alison Krauss, Wynonna Judd, even sister from Heart, Nancy Wilson.
