This album by legendary guitarist Chet Atkins was originally released in the late s but the albums were apparently pulled from stores shortly thereafter.
Before you get too excited when you find one of these albums at a thrift store, keep in mind that it was reissued in Glam rocker David Bowie was known for pushing the envelope with his awesome look, so it's no surprise LP his album cover art would shock and awe as well.
That was certainly the case with the original release of his Diamond Dogs LP. His record label, RCA, pulled the first version of the cover, which depicted a cartoonish rendition of Bowie with "dog genitals" on the opposite side of the gatefold. Only a few of these worrisome issues of the album cover were released. Most later versions have the artwork doctored with airbrushing to remove the offending areas.
As one of the most popular rock bands of all time, the group's self-titled album Led Zeppelin released in easily reached platinum status. But if you run across the rare first issue variation of the cover art, it will be worth many times what later releases bring.
What you're looking for in this case is turquoise blue lettering spelling out Led Zeppelin in the upper left corner of the cover. Other less valuable versions have red lettering. There are actually a number of early albums by The Beatles that are worth five figures now to avid collectors.
EP featuring the hits Mirror Man and Keep Feeling Fascination made it seem like all was rosy in the League camp, but a fully-fledged fourth long-player was much harder to come by. After producers Martin Rushent and Chris Thomas fell by the wayside during recording sessions, it was left Album) Hugh Padgham — he of the Phil Collins gated reverb sound — to finally get them over the finish line.
Almost three years after the release of Dare came Hysteria. The sweat ultimately paid off and Hysteria emerges from within the chaos, despite a few dips in quality The Sign and Betrayed feel like fillerto offer plenty of fine moments. Another Oakey tale of doomed love, So Hurtreturned to a retro 70s synth sound and Life On Your Own provided evidence of their knack for a killer chorus.
A fter the struggles of recording Hysteriaa fresh outlook and backroom team were required for its follow-up. Following the departure of Jo Callis inthe group lurched into yet another crisis. Label Virgin Records were concerned about the floundering of the League, who remained one of their marquee names, and resolved that a lack of direction on the production side was behind their creative stasis.
Their trademark style is immediately apparent on opener Money and the funky synths of I Need Your Loving. While hardcore fans may have been worried the group LP selling out, the reality was that this secured their future.
Chart Position UK No. Adopting a multi-producer approach, Romantic? Oh wow! Much better is the classy synth-pop of Heart Like A Wheel — its chorus is the most memorable aspect of the album — which plays to their strengths and the percussive A Doorway? A fter a five-year studio hiatus, Octopus finds The Human League digging in and reasserting themselves as a totemic synth-pop act. The Guardian was suitably impressed, labelling it one of the best love songs of the decade.
Oakey is on good form throughout Octopusmaking full use of his baritone on Housefull Of Nothing and sounding wonderfully engaged on the urgent State-style club banger closer Cruel Young Lover. Worthy of revisiting, for sure.
While it was well received by the critics, their eighth studio long-player notably failed to crack the UK Top Oakey shares co-writing credits with Neil Sutton for the most part on a record that attempts to retain their core elements but bring them into the new era, too. Tracks like Shameless are Album) with melodic ideas and Liaranother Oakey tale of infidelity, is a pulsing electro banger.
The vintage synth feel of instrumental Ran is the clearest nod to their 70s roots as ground-breaking electronica visionaries and the pulsing electro bassline, soulful lead vocals and very pop BVs on All I Ever Wanted make for a fine package. Never Give Your Heart also finds the group at their most unapologetically poppy.
A notable feature, though, are the instrumentals liberally laced through the tracklisting. After Secrets failed to make the impact the group had hoped for, The Human League walked away from the studio for yet another lengthy gap in their recording career, concentrating instead on refining their live act. Seven years later, it was time to freshen up the live set with some new material or risk being seen purely as a nostalgia act. Precision-tooled to make an impact on Album) dancefloor, more than 30 years into their career, Philip, Jo and Susan still sound at home in the clubs.
The obligatory vocoder effects turn up on the striking opener Never Let Me Go — a sleek slice of sexy pop while paean to the dancefloor Night People is a heavy-duty club banger solely aimed at getting your feet moving. More details here.
