In 1978, 10cc made quite an impression again, not only with another hit record, but also with the videoclip for it. Based on personal experiences during a holiday in the Caribbean, "Dreadlock Holiday" became a big hit all over the world
However, during this successful time for the band, Eric had a car accident and needed time to recover from serious injuries.
When Eric started to work again, he was asked to write the soundtrack for the film "Girls" and this project resulted in the release of his first solo album in Februari 1980.

She resembles a bit early Nanci Griffith and her voice is at times like Lucinda Williams. She sings relaxed like she's sitting right beside you and seems really to enjoy herself. You can't quite classify Cantrell's music or vocal style but it's sure a departure from the overproduced all-sound-alike stuff on the radio. I hope she becomes a big commercial success but in the same time let's hope Nashville keeps its hands off her sound. One Shania is more than enough.
Sampler with some live recordings, demo's, radio performances and album tracks.

Vinyl rip 192 Kbps
Billboard magazine called him "one of the finest artists on the music scene today" in 1971 and in 1996 referred to his debutalbum as one of the "best albums of the decade".
The American Dream is released in 1971 and is considered his third album. It is, in fact, his first. All recordings were made in 1967-1968. He recorded some of them with his previous band the Merry Go Round and some solo. The influence of Paul McCartney (Mother Earth / Someone Died) and Harry Nilsson (The Man He Was / In The Days Of The Old) can definitely be felt here. If you want to know what kind of music the beatles would have made if Harry was one of them you should listen to Holly Park. He doesn't copy them but there's a big resemblance.
If you are familliar with 10cc than "Mary Will You Take My Hand" will sound familiar.
Tracks: 1. Mother Earth / 2. Pardon Me / 3. Textile Factory / 4. Someone Died / 5. Come Ride, Come Ride / 6. Let's All Sing / 7. Holly Park / 8. You're a Very Lovely Woman / 9. Mary Will You Take My Hand / 10. Man He Was / 11. In the Days of the Old / 12. 'Til the Day After

Mike Oldfield And FriendsTubular Bells Live
Until he started touring regularly in the late 1970s, Mike Oldfield built up a reputation for reclusiveness that verged on hermit-hood - rarely interviewed, seldom seen, he simply sat in the studio, constructing his latest one man masterpiece, and apparently turning down some fabulous offers to go on the road. In fact, given the extraordinary complexity of the three albums he recorded during this period (Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn), his reluctance to perform live was scarcely surprising. If the Beatles didn't think it possible to recreate some of their stuff on stage, what hope did Kevin Ayers' old bassist have?
Just twice did Oldfield stir, once for a BBC TV performance of side one of Tubular Bells, and once for a full-fledged live presentation of the entire disc, shortly after the album's release in June 1973. Surrounding himself with friends - Ayers, David Bedford, Mick Taylor, Steve Hillage, Fred Frith, Pierre Moelin and Ted Speight (Steve Winwood dropped out after missing rehearsals), Oldfield then took over London's Queen Elizabeth Hall for a show that highlights both the strengths and the weaknesses of Tubular Bells.
The strengths are in the so-called main themes, the series of disparate melodies that give the piece its body. But the links that thread them together on vinyl are treated somewhat less forgivingly on stage. Side two of the album certainly drags, with the musicians apparently abandoning any hope of capturing its intricacies, and drowning instead in a self-inflicted sea of noodles.
The less than pristine sound quality exacerbates this problem, more so than it might on a "conventional" live performance - of course Tubular Bells was only ever conceived as a studio experience, and flaws that one might forgive on, say, a Stones live recording are amplified here to deafening proportions. At the end of the show, said one review, "the entire audience rose to its feet and hollered for more. It was one of those rare spontaneous outbursts of appreciation." Oldfield, on the other hand, swore never to play another show again.

ABC/Dunhill Records 1970
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Emitt Rhodes is Rhodes' self-titled debut album, released in 1970.
Rhodes recorded the album in his home studio. At the time, union rules required that recordings released on major labels must be recorded in proper studios, so the fact that this was a home recording could not be mentioned on the cover. The runout groove of the original LP release on Dunhill Records contained a decorative banner proclaiming, "Recorded at Home." Rhodes wanted to call the album Homecooking, but Dunhill decided to title it Emitt Rhodes.
Rhodes recorded the instruments on a four-track recorder and then approched Dunhill, who gave him a contract. He transferred the four-track instrumental recordings to an eight-track recorder to add the vocals on the four additional channels (and using a better microphone).
The album reached number 29 on the Billboard album chart. The single "Fresh as a Daisy" just missed the top forty. Billboard later called the album one of the "best albums of the decade". The song "Lullabye" was featured in the film The Royal Tenenbaums.
01 With My Face On The Floor / 02 Somebody Made For Me / 03 She's Such A Beauty / 04 Long Time No See / 05 Lullabye / 06 Fresh As A Daisy / 07 Live Till You Die / 08 Promises I've Made / 09 You Take The Dark Out Of The Night / 10 You Should Be Ashamed / 11 Ever Find Yourself Running? / 12 You Must Have

Colin Blunstone(vocals), Ian Bairnson (guitars), David Patton (bass, synthesizers, backing vocals), Stuart Elliott (drums, percussion), Pete Bardens (keyboards, piano), Richard Cottle (synthesizer, saxophone).
This album was their (only) recording and is produced by Alan Parsons.
This album was recorded between 83/12 and 84/3 at Abbey Road Studios, London, and released in 84/8 in UK. This album was done simultaneously with the recording for Ammonia Avenue (released 84/2 in UK).
Eric Woolfson worked as a "coordinator," Ian, David and Stuart from APP, and Pete from Camel. Eric was introduced to Peter by Andrew Latimer, the guitarist for Camel. He chose Colin Blunstone (ex-Zombies) as a vocalist. He named the band after the restaurant he frequented, not after the poet John Keats.
Richard Cottle plays sax and keyboards as a "guest player," and continues from this point as a APP-member, starting from Vulture Culture.
This album is best described as "the Alan Parsons Project meets Camel."
Though made without Eric Woolfson, the essence of his music is heard on this album.

Jeff Lynne is well known for his work with Roy Wood in the Move and the Electric Light Orchestra. Jeff did play in another band before he joined the Move; Idle Race.
Jeff's first record with Idle Race was "(Here We Go 'Round) The Lemon Tree" written by Roy Wood. The single doesn't hit the charts. Idle Race tries again and released "The Skeleton And The Roundabout", "End Of The Road" and "I Like My Toys". None of the singles sells but together with the flipsides they got half an album and so all of them can be found on "the birthday party" from 1968.
Tracks: Skeleton & The Roundabout / Happy Birthday/The Birthday / I Like My Toys / Morning Sunshine / Follow Me Follow / Sitting In My Tree / On With The Show / Lucky Man / Don't Put Your Boys In The Army, Mrs. Ward / Pie In The Sky / The Lady Who Said She Could Fly / End Of The Road

Long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...three musicians banded together and created some of the most amazing tunes ever to grace the celestial heavens. Their identities kept secret for a while, they were simply known at the time as "Klaatu." The band's first album 3:47 EST reverberated across the universe and caused a crack in the cosmic egg as their music sounded undeniably "Beatleseque." Beatle fans began their own magical mystery tour of sorts looking for clues in Klaatu's music and album covers if only to prove that both Klaatu and Beatles were the same musicians. But alas, over time it was eventually revealed to them that the "Beatleseque" group consisted of three very talented Canadian musicians by the names of John Woloschuk, Terry Draper and Dee Long.
This is a tribute album by various little known artists
We're Off You Know - Gavin & Dean / So Said The Lighthouse Keeper - Gavin & Dean / Doctor Marvello - The Nowadays (featuring Mark Hershberger) / Sir Bodsworth Rugglesby III - Jef Leeson (Jaimie Vernon's brother in law) / Everybody Took A Holiday - Dmitri Alano / A Routine Day - Mike Vancha / Older - Just Say Yes (featuring Steve Smith) / Dear Christine - Keld Telen / Cherie - Michael Grin /Mister Manson - Sulpher / Hot Box City - Alex Johnson /Knee Deep In Love - Reptile / I Can't Help It - Dave Bradley / Blue Smoke - Frank Marzano / I Don't Wanna Go Home - Dmitri Alano / Calling Occupants - Dave Bradley & Nataraj Sundaram / Doctor Marvello (Espanol) - Los Khaoticos (the original "first" mix) / Little Neutrino - The Nowadays (featuring Mark Hershberger) / Sub-Rosa Subway - The Beachles (featuring Jaimie Vernon) (the original "first" mix) / Grey Afternoon - Glen Banks (inspired by Klaatu)
