The Guess Who
Share The Land (Expanded Edition)– ICON 1044

The Guess Who seemed to have pulled a rabbit out of a hat as they crafted their follow-up release to the best selling album American Woman. The band had replaced Randy Bachman with two very capable guitarists in Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw. Kurt came with the added benefit of having written some great tunes with his pervious band Brother. Burton Cummings and Kurt also brought a new songwriting partnership to the group and they provided excellent materiel to the group for this release.
 
The first single Hand Me Down World set the stage for the album which was the band’s most successful seller at the time of release. Follow-up singles Share The Land and Hang On To Your Life kept the band firmly on the charts for the duration of the album’s release. [more info]

Carl Wilson
Carl Wilson

Carl Wilson took a hiatus from The Beach Boys in an attempt to try to do something slightly more aggressive than what he could do within the confines of the group. His first solo album was released in early 1981, and was crafted at the Caribou Ranch studios that were owned by James William Guercio, who also served as producer. This is the first time this compact disc will be available in the U.S. Its only other appearance on CD was a Japanese edition that was available for a very short time.

The centerpiece of the album is the absolutely divine Heaven, which Carl would often sing in the later stages of his touring days with The Beach Boys. Carl never rocked harder than he does on The Right Lane, and the album closer is Carl’s remembrance of simpler times, the beautiful and haunting Seems So Long Ago. [more info]

Jeff Beck Group

The second album by this configuration of the Jeff Beck Group was produced by Steve Cropper of Booker T and the MGs fame. The album features a continuation of the group’s emphasis on compositions that move in a jazzier, more R&B direction.

The centerpiece for the album, Goin’ Down could easily been recorded by the first edition of the Beck group and it received heavy FM radio airplay in major US markets. Other standout tracks included were the sublime instrumental Definitely Maybe, which hinted strongly at Jeff’s future direction, and a soulful reading of Dylan’s Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here with You.
