Greatest Hits by Journey:

From Amazon.com

Like other successful bands of the 1970s and 1980s, Journey’s sound was built on the double threat of singer Steve Perry’s upper-register vocals and guitarist Neal Schon’s melodic solos. The band also used rich harmonies to embellish their hard edge. Greatest Hits shows that Journey knew how to craft a pop song with memorable tunes like “Anyway You Want It” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.” “Wheel in the Sky” was one of the band’s more arty singles, while “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin'” relied on a straight four-bar blues pattern, with Perry’s vocals at their best. The band’s power ballads gave them their biggest success, and are rightfully represented here: “Faithfully,” “Open Arms,” and “Send Her My Love.” Another unlikely aspect further secured the band’s success–you could actually dance to some of their stuff, especially “Anyway You Want It.” –Steve Gdula

Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan:

Amazon.com essential recording

Dylan was virtually gushing great songs when this masterpiece arrived in the summer of 1965. From the epochal opening of “Like a Rolling Stone” through the absurdly apocalyptic closer, “Desolation Row,” his command of surrealistic language was daring and amazing. As a vocalist, he was rewriting the rules of the game. Jimi Hendrix made note of Mr. Z’s technically suspect pitch and decided that he too was a singer. And the backing, though ragged, is precisely right. Is this the essential Dylan album? It’s certainly one of them. –Steven Stolder

In My Tribe by 10,000 Maniacs:

From mazon.com essential recording

In My Tribe was 10,000 Maniacs’ second (and best) album and the record that made the band collegiate favorites and singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant a star. Producer Peter Asher’s rich balance of acoustic and electric instruments gave muscle to the group’s folk-rock. “Hey Jack Kerouac” found Merchant musing on the literary beats of the 1950s, but the song’s musical hook was the rich bed of rhythm guitars laid atop the solid drums. “Don’t Talk” offered a similarly propulsive rock sound, with lyrics that advised troubled lovers to keep it to themselves. R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe offered hipster credibility by guesting on “A Campfire Song,” while a cover of Cat Stevens’s “Peace Train” offered listeners a familiar port of entry. However, when Muslim convert Stevens announced his support of Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini’s call for the execution of Satanic Verses author Salman Rushdie, the band rereleased the album without “Peace Train.” –John Milward

Dino: The Essential Dean Martin

Monday, December 27th, 2010

Dino: The Essential Dean Martin:

From Amazon.com

The revisionist take on the Rat Pack’s razor-witted King of Cool reveals a Dean Martin who was considerably more complex than the Titan of Tipplers legend; a man who would just as soon retire to his room with a tumbler of milk to watch a TV Western than prowl the Strip with his famous cohorts. That sublime, preternatural indifference is both underscored and belied with dizzying regularity on this good 30-track overview of Martin’s singing career. The breezy hits “That’s Amore” and “Volare” underscored his public staying power when many counted him out in the face of a surging 1950s youth market. He repeated the feat again with trademark effortlessness a decade later to knock no less than the Beatles off the top of the charts with the unlikely, if inviting schmaltz of “Everybody Loves Somebody.” Ever informed by his warm, deceptive vocal ease, Martin’s rich signature tunes are well-represented here. But the collection also spans enough lovable kitsch (“Mambo Italiano,” “Little Old Wine Drinker Me”) and unabashed romantic yearning (“Innamorata,” “Send Me the Pillow You Dream On”) to deepen the compelling mystery of one of pop music’s most enduring ciphers. –Jerry McCulley

Exile On Main Street by The Rolling Stones:

Amazon.com essential recording

From the swaggering frustration in the first song (“I only get my rocks off while I’m sleeping,” Mick Jagger sings in the hyper “Rocks Off”), the Stones speed through familiar neighborhoods of country, blues, and R&B on Exile. They never even bother to stop when they’ve crashed into something. They don’t leap into new worlds so much as master the old ones, turning Slim Harpo’s blues obscurity “Hip Shake” into a harp-and-piano steamroller and setting spines a-cracking in “Ventilator Blues.” Both “Tumbling Dice” and Keith Richards’s “Happy” have become hits, but the 1972 album is most notable for its overall murky adrenaline. –Steve Knopper
