Isley: "High Wire"
astonishingly diverse solo debut by the Isleys' axeman,
High Wire is full of screaming guitars, tight riffs,
ear-tugging melodies, and evocative vocals."
"Guitarist/drummer/singer/songwriter Ernie Isley
infused the Isley Brothers with a Jimi
Hendrix-like virtuosity that took the veteran R&B
group into a more rockin' direction, earning 11 gold
and five platinum albums. Later as a member of Isley/Jasper/Isley,
he sang lead on the R&B hit "Look the Other
Way," and scored a number one R&B hit with
"Caravan of Love." Much of his work can be
heard on The Ultimate Isley Brothers, issued by Sony
Music Entertainment on October 17, 2000."
Feelgood: "All Through The City (with Wilko 1974
"Dr. Feelgood was the ultimate working band. From
their formation in 1971 to lead vocalist Lee Brilleaux's
untimely death in 1994, the band never left the road,
playing hundreds of gigs every year. Throughout their
entire career, Dr. Feelgood never left simple, hard-driving
rock & roll behind, and their devotion to the blues
and R&B earned them a devoted fan base."
"A four-CD/one-DVD box chronicling everything that
the original lineup of Brilleaux, guitarist Wilko Johnson,
bassist John B. Sparks, and drummer John "The Big
Figure" Martin recorded during their four years together,
All Through the City contains all the vital music Dr.
Feelgood ever recorded."
