Alice Russell's second solo album has been highly anticipated. Having slowly but surely build up her reputation as one of the UK's finest soul singers, through her recordings with a number of artists and live appearances, she is now concentrating on her solo career. My Favourite Letters has been produced and co-written by TM Jukes who has added his magic musical touch to Alice's gifted vocals. The album could be described as a kaleidoscope of soul music history with influences from Gospel, Hip-hop, Jazz, Northern Soul, Broken Beat, Electronica and Funk. 12 tracks.

A mystery to most, Darondo records are high on the wants-lists of many collectors.
Take a listen to these tracks, released for the first time together on an album, and you may agree that he could have been the next Al Green or Sly Stone. But about 25 years ago Darondo disappeared.
Releasing three singles in the early 1970s (as Darondo, Darondo Pulliam, or the miss-spelled Dorando) he mixed low-rider soul with blues and r'n'b. He delivered in a variety of styles from the socially-charged “Let My People Go” to the sexually-driven funk of “Legs”. All three singles were recorded in the Bay Area, and both sides of each of the singles are fantastic productions.
“You can hear a little bit of everything,” says Darondo about his music style. “There's a little jazz and a little soul.
Growing up in Berkeley California Darondo got his first gig at the age of 16 years. He played in a band at the Lucky 13 teen club, one town over in Albany.
Hooking up with Bay Area legends Al Tanner (producer) and Eddie Foster (guitarist) took his musical career up a notch.Foster had already worked with Okampo Records boss Leroy Smith on a few releases before introducing him to Darondo to record “How I Got Over” and “I Want Your Love” for a single. Local station KSOL picked-up on the release. “They gave me my first break and every record I punched up I sold,” says Darondo.
He remembers a big string section assembled in the room to record “Didn't I” and “Let My People Go”. At that session he also recorded versions of standards like “Luscious Lady”, “I Don't Understand It”, and “Sayonara” which were never released.
But after the release of his three 45s Darondo stopped recording. “It was mostly me, just having a good time with a real good hobby,” he says.
Outside of the music business Darondo started traveling. The ABC Islands, Caracas, Venezuela, Trinidad, Grenada, St Thomas, San Juan Puerto Rico, Acapulco, and Mexico. He even went out to London and Paris for six months.
After returning to the Bay Area, Darondo went back to school. “I went to Merritt College for a little while but decided to get physical therapy training at John Muir Medical Center instead. I used to incorporate the music with the therapy,” he says. “I'm very versatile so I'd sing everything to them; pop, country and western, jazz, etc. I worked with head trauma cases, amputees and folks like that. I'd bring my guitar in and watch miracles happen."
Darondo now lives in Northern California with his wife and family and is delighted to hear his music is getting a second wind courtesy of DJs and collectors like the UK-based Gilles Peterson who recently picked “Didn't I” for his Digs America compilation.
The six tracks from the three original singles are featured here, along with three previously unreleased songs that were recently discovered on a demo reel. The demo reel was sitting in a box of VHS copies of his cable TV shows which we had requested to use for images in the CD booklet. Recorded in the early 1970s, tracks from the demo reel were taken into a San Francisco studio in the summer of 2005 for enhancement. Darondo over-dubbed missing background vocals and guitar parts alongside up and coming San Francisco soul man Bing Ji Ling. Darondo warmed up quickly, he hasn't lost his touch. After the session Darondo confessed that he was inspired to start playing there is hope for a full-blown Darondo revival!

Real Name:
Mark Mothersbaugh, Gerald V. Casale, Bob Mothersbaugh, Bob Casale, Josh Freez
New-wave group popular throughout the late 70's and early 80's, formed by a group of art students at Kent State University, principally Mark Mothersbaugh and Jerry Casale. Their name comes from the central concept of "de-evolution" - the idea that mankind is devolving instead of evolving, as evidenced by the encroaching gullibility and herd mentality of the American people. After releasing several records on their own Booji Boy label, their work on the short film The Truth About De-Evolution in 1976 got them signed to Warner Brothers, where they had a major hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It". After 1980, their career continuously faded from the public eye until the band called it quits in the early 1990's. However, they reformed for a series of live dates in 2004. Line-up: Mark Mothersbaugh: vocals, keyboards, guitar Gerald V. Casale: vocals, bass, keyboards Bob Mothersbaugh (Bob I): lead guitar, vocals Bob Casale (Bob II): rhythm guitar, keyboards, vocals Jim Mothersbaugh (1974-1976): drums Alan Myers (1976-1985): drums David Kendrick (1986-1990): drums Josh Freez (1995-current): drums

LAURA BRANIGAN-the very best of CD (1992)

Dear Fans
,It was confirmed to OneStor earlier today from Joan Di Tursi Laura's previous manager that Laura had passed away in her sleep last night Thursday August 26th 2004 of a Brain aneurysm.

Laura Branigan was born in New York on July 3, 1957 just outside New York City. Although a performance career was never something Laura wanted in her childhood, her lead role in a senior play in high school quickly changed her mind and her future. In the mid-70s, Laura attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.
Laura was a former backing vocalist with Leonard Cohen in the late 70s and toured with him throughout Europe. By 1977, Laura had determination to become a solo artist and 2 years later was signed with Atlantic Record. A change in managers resulted in a breach-of-contract lawsuit, but it didn't deter Laura from becoming one of the biggest female pop artists of the decade.
Laura's first big appearance on pop radio was with the single "Gloria" which became a huge #1 hit and the staple song of her career. The track came from Laura's debut LP, Branigan released in '82. Although "Gloria" took several weeks to become a hit, once it did, the song remained on the charts several months. Another track from the LP, "All Night With Me," was a minor hit before "Gloria" hit big. Laura received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Performance Female ("Gloria").
Laura released Branigan2 and had 2 more Top 10 hits with "Solitaire" (in May) and "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You" (hitting the Top 40 in August). Laura could also be heard on the Flashdance soundtrack with "Imagination."
Laura released Self Control and got as high as # 2 with "Self Control." Laura also had hits with "The Lucky One" and "Ti Amo."
Hold Me was released with the Top 40 hit "Spanish Eddie" and hits "I Found Someone" and "Hold Me."
Touch was released and the first single "Shattered Glass" was a minor hit. The second single "The Power Of Love" returned Laura to the Top 20.
The release of Laura Branigan in 1990 spawned a minor hit with "Moonlight On Water" and Over My Heart was released in 1993. In 1994, Laura could be heard dueting with actor David Hasselhoff on the Baywatch soundtrack with "I Believe." In June, 1995, Laura release a greatest hits collection called Best Of which Q magazine hailed as "...a hugely appealing belter of a voice... with distinctly epic and sometimes even moving qualities..." Laura's acting credits have included guest shots on television's CHiPs and the films Mugsy's Girl (1984) and Backstage (1988). Laura also appeared on German television in An American Girl In Berlin (1981(c)) Laura returned to the public eye in 2002, earning rave reviews with her portrayal of Janis Joplin in the hit New York City musical Love, Janis. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide.

RULES OF ROCK by guitarist Robert Strain 1) All sax players look the same 2) All drummers are mad, and are always late 3) All singers are vain and precious 4) All keyboard players are slightly eccentric - 'boffins' 5) All bass players are sensible (van driving, arranging gigs, doing the accounts) 6) All guitarists are handsome and brilliant - well, I would say that ;-) Actually, all guitarists just want to play guitar (we can't be bothered with all the other nonsense). Well, that and attend to all the women the singer rejects! :)
