While better known as an actor thanks to his immortal role as television's bumbling Gomer Pyle, Jim Nabors also enjoyed a successful career as an easy listening balladeer. Born June 12, 1930, in Sylacauga, Alabama, he graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in business administration, but later found himself working in TV as an apprentice editor; at much the same time, he also pursued a career as a cabaret singer.

Bang, Bang introduced a hard rocker whose eclecticism was both impressive and unnervingly inconsistent. The covers of "Season of the Witch" and "Summertime Blues" are overlong and dated, but the frenetic version of Cher's "Bang, Bang" is inspired, and the rendition of Gene Pitney's "Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart" shows his poppier roots. Over half of the material was penned by Reid, and while these compositions are sometimes generic, late-'60s hard rockers, he also shows a facility for Donavonesque folk-rock "("Sweater"") and impressive soul-rock vocalizing ("When I Get Home"). Originally not released in the U.K., it's ironically only available now as a U.K. import.

Stonewall Jackson was one of the most popular country stars of the early '60s, scoring a string of Top Ten country hits and becoming a fixture at the Grand Ole Opry with a pleading voice that seemed to reflect his hard, often abusive upbringing on a south Georgia dirt farm. He was named after the Confederate general Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, to whom he was related according to family legend. When he was ten he traded his bike for a guitar and began making up songs. Some of his later hits, such as "Don't Be Angry," were written very early in his creative life. Jackson began singing professionally in the mid-'50s, moving to Nashville in 1956.

This is one great record, not only as a showcase for Hank Cochran's writing, which is a given, but also for Cochran as an interpreter of others' songs included is his debut Monument single, a rendition of Merle Haggard's "All of Me Belongs to You," which is as fine a performance as he brings to his own material. The mix of sounds on the album is a little bit odd, owing to the fact that the contents are derived from two rounds of sessions several years apart the early sides, from 1962-1963, are ballads done in a romantic countrypolitan manner for the Monument sub-label Gaylord Records, whilst the later sides from 1966 are set in a harder, more rocking honky tonk mode.

Penny Nichols's debut album is not a major singer/songwriter statement, but neither is it as mundane as many such also-ran LPs of the late '60s. She has a nice, pleasant strong voice, if not one of great distinction. There might be more folk-rock than anything else to her songs, but there are also a good amount of pop smarts to her melodies. There's also a fair amount of pop acumen to the modest but effective production, including contributions from guitar aces Vincent Bell, Bruce Langhorne, and Al Gorgoni.

The "Songbird of the South," vocalist Kate Smith was one of the most popular stars of the pre-World War II era; she remains best remembered for her definitive version of the patriotic anthem "God Bless America," which became a hit on no less than three separate occasions. Born Kathryn Elizabeth Smith in Washington, D.C. on May 1, 1907, she initially trained to be a nurse but began singing professionally during the early 1920s, soon relocating to New York to pursue roles in vaudeville and on Broadway, where she appeared in Honeymoon Lane in 1926. The owner of a thunderous contralto, Smith signed to Columbia in 1927, debuting with "One Sweet Letter From You," backed by Red Nichols' Charleston Chasers. In 1931 she began hosting her own radio show; its theme song, "When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain," subsequently became her first major hit, selling some 19 million copies.

Hank Snow isn't generally thought of as a spoken word artist, but the Singing Ranger did dabble in dramatic readings during the course of a recording career that spanned four decades; Snow recorded the album Old Doc Brown and Other Narrations in 1955, and cut his best-known spoken album, Tales of the Yukon, in 1968. Proud Canadian Snow doubtless felt an affinity for the narrative poems of Robert William Service, who earned international fame for his rough-hewn but often sentimental tales of men in the Northern territories, and here Snow recites seven of Service's works (along with "The Face on the Barroom Floor," often attributed to Service but actually penned by Hugh Antoine d'Arcy), accompanied by minimal, unobtrusive musical backings.

Showcasing a unique sound, Max's music features sharp songwriting accompanied by his raspy tenor. On Tales Of Us, the British singer-songwriter fuses R&B, funk and soul influences as he contemplates on his past relationships and inner battles. "These songs came from events that happened to me in the last two years, from falling out of love to marching to freedom".

There are no weaknesses in Thomas Fonnesbæk’s playing. A strong melodic, harmonic and rhythmic sense makes him a complete musician. As a composer he is influenced by both the Scandinavian melancholy and the American jazz tradition.

Italian Jazz singer Greta Panettieri performs some her favourite pop songs, both Italian and Iternational. Fascinated by this world of notes and sounds, music has been Greta's career and life ever since. In 1998, Greta attended a Berklee College of Music Summer workshop, and was subsequently awarded a scholarship to attend the school but instead went to NYC. A love of language became a second passion as the professional need to sing in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian arose through the various concerts and recordings she was involved in. Importantly, her passion for note patterns and rhythms, has allowed her to experiment and experience the challenging and inventive form of jazz singing called Scatting.

Staffed by a rotating gallery of musicians from all worlds jazz, folk, celtic, rock the Song Club serves as a kind of creative clearinghouse, a regularly occurring get-together in which writers can practice, encourage and try out new ideas around a group of peers. For Lawry, it’s one of the key reasons the record exists (we’ll get to the others in a bit), as it offered something crucial to her process: motivation. “That club is really what set me off to the races in finishing this record,” Lawry says.

In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. His frequent hurricane blasts of noise and dazzling showmanship he could and would play behind his back and with his teeth and set his guitar on fire has sometimes obscured his considerable gifts as a songwriter, singer, and master of a gamut of blues, R&B, and rock styles.

One of the top swing-based pianists of the past 25 years, Dave McKenna's hard-driving basslines give momentum to uptempo pieces, and his vast knowledge of superior songs from the 1930s has resulted in many rewarding albums of traditional but fresh music. Although talented from the start, McKenna did not achieve that much recognition until he was already in his forties. Dave McKenna performs while showcasing his special talent for the jazz piano medley.
