Sale! ABBA – The Album
ABBA – The Album
"The Album" was simply an incredibly popular release, yielding two British number one singles in "The Name of the Game" and "Take a Chance on Me". The opening number dominated by synthesizers and soaring larger-than-life vocal flourishes, is followed by the more lyrical Take a Chance on Me, with its luminous a cappella opening. The whole album is like that, effortlessly straddling hard rock, pop/rock, dance-rock, and progressive rock - though the hits turned to stand out in highest relief, there are superb album tracks here.

Steely Dan – Gaucho
Steely Dan – Gaucho
"Babylon Sisters" is a fine, slow & steady shuffler. "Hey Nineteen," the big hit from the album, is a bouncy, sparkly tune, and "Glamour Profession" is very groovy. The title song is more laid-back, but has marvelous melody to it. "Time Out Of Mind," the closest Steely Dan get to "rocking out" on this album, is a terrific toe-tapper, and arguably the best tune from the album. "My Rival" is a cool smooth-groover, and the finale, "Third World Man," with its feeling of calm, is a tranquil, peaceful gem for Walt & Don to exit with. Thankfully, "Gaucho" was NOT the last we'd ever see from Steely Dan.

Sale! The Police – Reggatta de Blanc
The Police – Reggatta de Blanc
Regatta De Blanc translates to White Reggae, and this record showcases the Police's original blend of reggae-rock. This 1979 record served as a major breakthrough for the Police with big-time hits "Message In A Bottle" and "Walking On The Moon." Regatta De Blanc also served as the vehicle for Stewart Copeland's only lead vocal appearance with "On Any Other Day." This is the record that served notice to the world that The Police were to be a superstar band in the 1980s.

Thin Lizzy – Jailbreak

Sale! Van Morrison – Tupelo Honey
Van Morrison – Tupelo Honey
Tupelo Honey is typical of Van Morrison's early work in both sound and stucture; after dispensing with the requisite hit - here, the buoyant, R&B inflected "Wild Night" - he truly gets down to business, settling into a luminously pastoral drift typified by the nostalgic "Old Old Woodstock." At the heart of the record are a pair of stunning love songs, "You're My Woman" and the hymn-like title cut, one of Morrison's most enduring and transcendent compositions.
