BEV BEVAN'S CD PICKS APRIL 2018 FAB FOUR


Seventies Anthems (Demon)


If the seventies is your favourite decade of music, then this collection of recordings is pretty much a must-have for your CD shelf, offering 80 hit singles across four CDs. As with all compilations of this type, there are some songs you love and some songs that you hate.


My top dozen tracks are: Just The Way You Are by Billy Joel; Lovely Day by Bill Withers; You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine from Lou Rawls; Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me by Gladys Knight and the Pips; Way Down by Elvis Presley; All By Myself by Eric Carmen; Without You from Nilsson; Lou Reed’s Perfect Day; Sad Cafe’s Every Day Hurts; Mother And Child Reunion by Paul Simon; What Can I Say by Boz Scaggs; and Bonnie Tyler’s Lost In France.


A few that I hope I’ll never have to hear again include YMCA by Village People; Shang A Lang by Bay City Rollers; and Angelo by Brotherhood Of Man !


Sha Na Na – From the Streets of New York / Hot Sox / Sha Na Now (Beat Goes On)


Fifties’ rock’n’roll specialists Sha Na Na, led by John Bowzer Baumann, were formed at Columbia University in 1969. One of their ever-changing line-up of members was Henry Gross, who went on to have a huge solo hit with the lovely Shannon in 1976. Although Sha Na Na never had much chart success, they were a hugely popular live band across America. In the early 70s, ELO opened for Sha Na Na on two sell-out nights at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore West in San Francisco.


These three albums from 1973, 1974 and 1975 illustrate what they were all about. Tracks include their stylised adaptations of Jerry Lee Lewis’ High School Confidential; Dion’s The Wanderer; Bobby Darin’s Splish Splash; Little Richard’s Long Tall Sally; Del Shannon’s Runaway; Neil Sedaka’s Breaking Up Is Hard To Do; The Silhouettes’ Get A Job; and Joe Jones’ You Talk Too Much.


Hank Marvin – Without A Word (DMG)


No lead guitarist has played on more British hit singles than the famously bespectacled Geordie, Hank B Marvin. With The Shadows (the most successful instrumental act of all time) and also backing Cliff Richard, his distinctive style of guitar playing is heard on over 60 hit records, including a dozen number ones, plus many hit albums too. My great friend Tony Iommi rates Hank Marvin as his earliest influence.


This solo album, neatly entitled Without A Word, features 14 new recordings of songs personally selected by Hank Marvin. These include his stylised adaptations of Michelle; Alfie; Are You Lonesome Tonight; Moon River; The Fool On The Hill; Cry Me A River; What A Wonderful World; and Will You Love Me Tomorrow.


Jim Reeves – Young and Country / Jim Reeves Writes You A Record / Love You Because / Don’t Let Me Cross Over (Beat Goes On)


Jim Reeves was born in 1924 in Texas and died in a plane crash in Tennessee in 1964, aged just 39. In fact, following that tragic accident, Gentleman Jim Reeves found his greatest success and at one time had eight LPs in the top 20 of the UK album charts.


These four albums, now on this double CD collection, were originally released in the seventies. Amongst the 40 tracks you’ll find: When Two Worlds Collide; From A Jack To A King; I Love You Because; A Fool Such As I; Someday You’ll Want Me To Love You; The Shifting Whispering Sands; I Fall To Pieces; I’m A Fool To Care; and Have You Ever Been Lonely .
