River of Dreams

Music by Billy Joel

Originally Performed by Billy Joel

River of Dreams is the twelfth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on August 10, 1993. He stopped recording new music as a performer after this album although he has subsequently released live albums and composed the music for an instrumental album performed by Richard Joo. River of Dreams presented a much more serious tone from Joel than found in his previous albums, dealing with issues such as trust and long-lasting love. It was rumored that the themes of trust and betrayal, particularly certain lyrics from the songs "A Minor Variation" and "The Great Wall of China", stem from Joel's legal disputes with his former manager and ex-brother-in-law, Frank Weber, who reportedly embezzled millions of dollars from Joel and used dubious accounting practices to cover it up

Euphorics : Born To Sing : 00  1 CD

Euphorics : Born To Sing

Two man, two women Canadian Contemporary Quartet the Euphorics, blew us away winning the 1999 Harmony Sweeps Bay Area Regional and gave a great performance at the Finals. We loved their debut album "Standing Up for Love" by have been waiting patiently for its sequel, and now happily hold "Born to Sing" in our hot little hands! The wonderful harmonies and leads by Joni Bye (alto/soprano), Helen Davis (alto/soprano) and Bing Jenson (bass) are as solid and crisp as ever. There is one significant change, the fine tenor of Nathan Aswell, has been replaced by that of David Steele; but we have to say the group is sounding better than ever. "Born to Sing" has 10 songs, beginning with a Curtis Mayfield/Bob Marley medley, "People Get Ready/Three Little Birds/One Love," a very funny group reggae original, "When the Big One Comes," a sweet Lennon/McCartney medley, "Eleanor Rigby/Across the Universe," Billy Joel's "River of Dreams," Richard and Robert Sherman's "I Wanna Be Like You," a nice traditional medley, "Down to the River to Pray/I'll Fly Away/Man of Constant Sorrow," bass Bing's hit from the Sweeps, "I Sing Low," "When the Night Feels My Song," Neil Young's "After the Goldrush" and closing with Stevie Wonder's "As." Every one of these is a winner. The Euphorics have a huge, spirited sound and put on a live show as entertaining as any we have seen. Treat yourself to "Born to Sing," and enjoy!

Songlist: People Get Ready/Three Little Birds/ One Love, When the Big One Comes, Eleanor Rigby/Across the Unverse, River of Dreams, I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song), Down to the River to Pray/I'll Fly Away/Man of Constant Sorrow, I Sing Low, When the Night Feels My Song, After the Goldrush, As (always)

Ladysmith Black Mambazo : And Friends

Since their earliest days in the 1960's, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has shared the studio and stage with scores of artists from around the world, representing just about every possible musical genre. The South African a cappela gospel ensemble's appearance on Paul Simon's landmark Graceland album is probably the most widely-recognized of the group's cross-cultural collaborations, but Simon's 1986 Grammywinning recording is merely the tip of a much larger iceberg. Over the years, the group has demonstrated its melodic, harmonic and rhythmic versatility in recordings with an array of artists representing folk, rock, pop, soul, country, classical, hip-hop and world music. In each case, they have taken the work of a great artist and made it even better. The group has assembled a two-disc set of recordings that capture Ladysmith Black Mambazo s reach across the cultural divide and joining hands with musicians from around the globe.

Songlist: Knocking On Heaven's Door, Weeping, Homeless, Diamonds On the Soles of Her Shoes, Shosholoza, World In Union, Passage To Promise, Amazing Grace/Nearer My God To Thee, Chain Gang, Rain Rain Beautiful Rain, Jabulani (Rejoice), Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Bread of Heaven, Dlondlobala Njalo, Homeless, Diamonds On the Soles of Her Shoes, Hello My Baby, People Get Ready, Abezizwe (Uniting Nations Together), Paradise Road, One Blood, Oh Happy Day, River of Dreams, Mbube, I'll Take You There, Inkanyezi Nezazi, Sohlabelela Hosana, Angimboni Ofana Naye, Mamizolo

Ladysmith Black Mambazo : Heavenly : 00  1 CD : 64098

Ladysmith Black Mambazo : Heavenly

Ladysmith crosses cultural boundaries more than ever before to bring their musical message to a wider audience. The lineup of musicians who with whom they work is fabulous. The album begins with one of the most complex pieces of music imaginable from Joseph who admits that his music is very difficult to sing. Dolly Parton leads "Knockin' On Heavens Door." "O Happy Day" and "Take My Hand Precious Lord" features vocalist Betty Griffin. Phoebe Snow is lead singer on "People Get Ready." Bill Champlin does the lead vocal on "River Of Dreams." You'll find Lou Rawls in lead on "Chain Gang" and Hana "Coyote" Motijoane sings lead on "I'll Take You There." Among these instrumentally accompanied guest appearances which explore American gospel and R&B are an equal number of Ladysmith familiars. It's wonderful how many artists seek to share the message of hope and joy with Ladysmith Black Mambazo!

Songlist: Yitho umlilo ovuthayo, Knockin' on Heavens Door, Oh Happy Day, People Get Ready, Take My Hand, Precious Lord, Sohlabelelu Hosana, I'll Take You There, Rain, Rain Beautiful Rain, River of Dreams, Jesus Is My Leader, Chain Gang, He Showed Me His Hands, Ilungelo ngelakho
