The Isley Brothers
Go For Your Guns (Expanded Edition)– ICON 1045

Go For Your Guns was the fifth album by the 3+3 line-up of the Isley Brothers and was a landmark album for the group on many levels. A mixture of molten funk tunes and beautiful ballads weaving in and out of each other led to massive sales and huge chart success.
 
The album featured smash R&B and pop hits that continued the rise of the Isley’s popularity in the mid-seventies. The Pride hit the #1 spot on the R&B charts and was followed by Livin’ in the Life, which went all the way to #4 on the same chart. In addition both singles did very respectably on the pop charts. Voyage to Atlantis also charted R&B and Footsteps in the Dark became one of the most sampled tracks of the rap era. All leading to an album that climbed to the top of the R&B charts and crossed over to #6 on the pop chart. [more info]

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]
