A Commodore makes a solo statement

Lionel Richie was still a Commodore when he released his first, self-titled album on October 6, 1982. But such was its immense success that there was no turning back. Four million sales in the US alone sent a very clear message that his fans wanted Lionel solo.

A4 - My Love

B1 - Round And Round

B2 - Truly

B3 - You Are

B4 - You Mean More To Me

Behind The Sun

Eric Clapton

Behind The Sun

Eric Clapton

Clapton's blues-rock roots colliding with Phil Collin's mainstream 80's pop production

Released in 1985, Behind the Sun is an often-overlooked album in the Clapton catalog. However, it should be remembered, as it features great guitar playing, wonderful songwriting and it was Eric's first collaboration with drummer Phil Collins.


A1 - She's Waiting

A2 - See What Love Can Do

A3 - Same Old Blues

A4 - Knock on Wood

A5 - Something's Happening

B1 - Forever Man

B2 - It All Depends

B3 - Tangled in Love

B4 - Never Make You Cry

B5 - Just Like a Prisoner

B6 - Behind the Sun

Big Bam Boom

Daryl Hall & John Oats

Big Bam Boom

Daryl Hall & John Oats

True to its explosive name, Big Bam Boom is quite a shock to the system, bursting with dance grooves and catchy hook-filled singles.

Big Bam Boom really dives head first into the electronic sound, chock-full of way more synthesized sound that what was ever heard before. It was a daring left turn for the pop-rock act, and it definitely paid off, giving them their final #1 hit with "Out of Touch."


A1 - Dance on Your Knees

A2 - Out of Touch

A3 - Method of Modern Love

A4 - Bank on Your Love

A5 - Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid

A6 - Going Thru the Motions

A7 - Cold Dark and Yesterday

A8 - All American Girl

A9 - Possession Obsession

Prefab Sprout - Swoon

Heading Intro








Impeccable musicianship, creative writing and spotless production. A courageous evolution to follow a huge breakthrough debut.

This album stands as a down to earth and yet rather bold musical experimentation that reflects the young age of the musicians in the best way. A virtually perfect body of music, surprisingly humble in its boldness. It is also the first time Toto tried to free themselves from the commercial chains.
