Mel Tormé had recorded relatively few rewarding albums in the decade before this set, originally put out by Gryphon before being reissued on CD by DCC Jazz. However, his voice had improved with time, his range had widened, and he had become an even stronger jazz singer than before. Since Tormé is joined here by the largely anonymous Chris Gunning Orchestra, with guest altoist Phil Woods, on a set of generally “contemporary” pop songs (including “All in Love Is Fair,” “New York State of Mind,” “Send in the Clowns” and “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”), this set is not too essential. However, Tormé’s professionalism and ability to swing makes this an interesting outing anyway, and launched his “comeback”.

In 1970, Elektra Records released a Doors hits collection called 13. In 1971, the Doors scored two more hits, “Love Her Madly” and “Riders on the Storm,” and their lead singer, Jim Morrison, died. In 1972, Elektra released a two-LP anthology containing “Love Her Madly” and “Riders on the Storm,” along with a lot of album tracks. But there was no single-LP compilation that contained all the Doors’ hits, from “Light My Fire” to “Riders on the Storm.” This 11-track 1973 album was an attempt to address that problem, and at the time of its release, containing seven of the Doors’ eight Top 40 hits (the exception being “The Unknown Soldier”), it was the best Doors greatest-hits collection on the market.

Genre: Rock | SACD Hybrid reissue release from The Doors. Features 2.0 Stereo and 5.1 multichannel surround.

A tremendous debut album, and indeed one of the best first-time outings in rock history, introducing the band’s fusion of rock, blues, classical, jazz, and poetry with a knock-out punch. The lean, spidery guitar and organ riffs interweave with a hypnotic menace, providing a seductive backdrop for Jim Morrison’s captivating vocals and probing prose. “Light My Fire” was the cut that topped the charts and established the group as stars, but most of the rest of the album is just as impressive, including some of their best songs: the propulsive “Break on Through” (their first single), the beguiling Oriental mystery of “The Crystal Ship,” the mysterious “End of the Night,” “Take It as It Comes” (one of several tunes besides “Light My Fire” that also had hit potential), and the stomping rock of “Soul Kitchen” and “Twentieth Century Fox.” The 11-minute Oedipal drama “The End” was the group at its most daring and, some would contend, overambitious. It was nonetheless a haunting cap to an album whose nonstop melodicism and dynamic tension would never be equaled by the group again, let alone bettered.

Whitesnake – Come An’ Get It (1981) [Japanese Limited SHM-SACD 2010] {SACD ISO + FLAC 24bit/88,2kHz}

Whitesnake – Come An’ Get It (1981) [Japanese Limited SHM-SACD 2010 # UIGY-9056]
PS3 Rip | ISO | SACD DSD64 2.0 > 1-bit/2.8224 MHz | 40:29 minutes | Scans included | 1,63 GB
or FLAC(converted with foobar2000 to tracks) 24bit/88,2 kHz | Scans included | 830 MB
Genre: Rock, Metal

Features the 2010 DSD mastering based on Japanese original analog tape (subject to change). Reissue features the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format (fully compatible with standard SACD player, but it does not play on standard CD players). DSD Transferred by Manabu Matsumura.

Despite the massive talents of vocalist David Coverdale and his supporting cast of musicians (not to mention the unimpeachable resumé of producer Martin Birch), Come an’ Get It was another maddeningly average Whitesnake album. A thoroughly boring set that played it too safe and yielded no lasting live favorites, Come an’ Get It was competent to the max — in the hands of a debuting artist, it may have qualified as a classic — but for a near-supergroup of such experience and pedigree, it instead smacked of severe underachievement. Rare highlights include the driving energy of “Hot Stuff,” the lively bar-room piano of “Wine, Women and Song,” and the wistful, acoustic balladry of “Till the Day I Die.” But these share space with run-of-the-mill bluesy rockers like “Don’t Break My Heart Again” and “Would I Lie to You” — all of them hard to fault, but equally impossible to praise. Yawn! Even the quasi-epic “Child of Babylon” fails to live up to initial promise, a half-hearted effort that easily defines the entire record’s abiding sense of indifference. No doubt a reflection of Coverdale’s own fluctuating interest in the group, Come an’ Get It’s confounding mediocrity would thankfully give way to the just as inexplicable brilliance of 1982’s Saints & Sinners and 1984’s Slide It In — a two-towered climax of Whitesnake’s career that displayed a newfound zest in urgency and inspiration.

Genre: Rock

This is the album that started it all for George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley! Whether or not it will ever be “cool” to admit liking them, Make It Big sounds pretty good after all of these years. Granted, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” is an impossible notion to begin with–who could possibly sleep after this sugar binge? But “Everything She Wants” has a sophisticated tension in its syncopation, and, wow, could the boy sing! “Careless Whisper” really showed that George Michael had a firm grasp on R&B and soul.
