VA - It Was A Very Good Year (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3

 

A VERY GOOD YEAR

VA - It Was A Very Good Year (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2+CD3

"It Was a Very Good Year" is a song composed by Ervin Drake in 1961. Ervin Drake's inspiration to write the song was his then wife-to-be, Edith Vincent Bermaine. She was a showgirl, whom he had dated, and eventually married twenty years after the song was written. It was originally recorded by Bob Shane with the Kingston Trio. 

It was made famous by Frank Sinatra's version in D minor, which won the Grammy Award for Best Male Vocal Performance in 1966 and became Sinatra's first number one Adult Contemporary single while it peaked at #28 on the Hot 100.

Pity our year has been so dismal in many ways. Here are 61 great versions for you to relax by.

VA - Soul Train Hall of Fame, 20th Anniversary [1994] (3 x CD's)

 

SOUL TRAIN

VA - Soul Train Hall of Fame, 20th Anniversary [1994] (3 x CD's)

Soul Train, the longest-running weekly syndicated program in television, gave black artists and dancers a forum when there was no interest from the major networks. This fine three-disc boxed set celebrates the show's two decades and serves as a good overview of how contemporary black pop has changed during its run. The opening disc is by far the most diverse; during the mid-70's, there was still room for Southern soul and blues, stylish pop, funk, and vocal groups. The second disc mirrors the turn toward more sophisticated production, a less soulful sound, and the coming of disco. The final CD begins with light soul and pop-tinged fare, then slides into rap, hip-hop, and new jack swing. Most of these songs are available elsewhere, but this collection gives listeners a consistently entertaining tour. Rhino deserves bonus points for using all original versions throughout.

April Wine - The April Wine Collection [1991] (4 x CD's)

 

APRIL WINE

April Wine - The April Wine Collection [1991] (4 x CD's)

A 4 x CD boxset from the veteran Canadian rockers. This set contains digitally remastered tracks broken up into four different categories. Disc One, the Singles, features 19 tracks including all of their big hits. Disc Two, the Rock Songs, contains 17 Hard Rockin' AW classics. Disc Three, Vintage Wine, includes 16 excellent tracks that have remained fan favorites over the years. Disc Four, Live, features 15 recordings that truly capture the essence of what an April Wine show is all about. Combined, these four discs show the many sides of the band that have appealed to their generations of fans over the years. April Wine is a truly intoxicating blend of Rock smarts and excellent songwriting chops. 67 tracks.

There's several collections out there but this is the only one that has everything by the legendary and beloved Canadian band! Americans know April Wine for their big eighties US hit Just Between You And Me but in Canada they have had tons of other songs that were smashes and their concerts are always big events! Personally I love their early songs like Lady Run Lady Hide and the Elton John/Bernie Taupin cover Bad Side Of The Moon. But there are scores of other classics too, among them Tonite Is A Wonderful Time, You Won't Dance With Me, Rock & Roll Is A Vicious Game, You Could Have Been A Lady, Doin' It Right and Rock Myself To Sleep, among many others.  (Amazon)
