Lady Rockers

Ladies of Rock and Roll- Lady Rockers


Alanis Morissette -You Learn - RocknRoll Goulash

OK now, let's be honest. Mention Alanis Morissette and most people think of one thing: "Jagged Little Pill". I was the same way. Alright, maybe throw in "Uninvited". I was never able to get interested in any of her other music. But, sometimes things sound better years later than they did when they were new.

Meredith Brooks -Bitch - RocknRoll Goulash

I loved the single "Bitch" when I heard it. Of course it seems that a lot of people do, but being my odd self I won't buy a recording until I hear at least 2 singles off of it that I like (or I already know the artist which I didn't).

Carly Simon -You're So Vain - RocknRoll Goulash

Carly Simon remains one of the greatest singers of the 20th century and she continues her work even today. Her voice is strong, rich and full of energy; and the musical arrangements for her songs are brilliant. This album contains many of Carly's earliest runaway hits and these songs remain as fresh as ever.

Patti Smith - Drifter's Escape - RocknRoll Goulash

It is an absolute disgrace that this femme-punk-poet icon poet hasn't been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, neither has Lou Reed as a solo artist. Reality bites (some) too hard, I suppose. Smith is easily one of the 10 most influential artists of the past 30 years.

Robert Palmer Girls -Addicted to Love - RocknRoll Goulash

Robert Palmer Girls -Addicted to Love paintings. The models in the video are Susie Verrico (not shown), Patty Kelly, Julie Pankhurst, Mak Gilchrist and Julia Bolino The songs Simply Irresistible and Addicted to Love both prominently featured women with a distinctive look.

Janis Joplin -Down On Me - RocknRoll Goulash

It would be difficult for me to rate any Janis Joplin CD with anything but 5 stars. I have never heard Janis sing anything that I did not love. I have been a Janis fan for over 40 years and I am happy to see her music still drawing crowds.

Maria Muldaur -It Ain't the Meat, It's the Motion - RocknRoll Goulash

Not her best, but a good mix of pop, blues and jazz. See "Richland Woman Blues" album for gutsier, more... overall interesting Muldaur cuts. The treatment here of "Brickyard Blues" (what seems to be Dr. John's identifiable piano in back) is great, though - brassy and funky at the same time.

Carole King -Smackwater Jack - RocknRoll Goulash

This was a beautiful album when I first heard it in 1971. It is a beautiful CD when I listen to it today. Tapestry marked Carole King's transition from remarkable "Tin-Pan Alley' pop song-writer for the likes of Neil Sedaka, the Shirelles (who I think originally recorded Will You Love Me Tomorrow) and others to a singer/performer of the first rank.

Alanis Morissette -Hand In My Pocket - RocknRoll Goulash

I can insert a corny Alanis pun here e.g. You Oughta Know why this album is so good (oops I did it anyway), but if have not listened to it, please do yourself a favour.

Lorde -Tennis Court - RocknRoll Goulash

First of all, don't buy the "all the songs sound the same" reviews. Unless you just think all synthesizer based songs sound the same. It seems to me that they did in fact try to make each song have its own feeling.

Lisa Loeb -I Do - RocknRoll Goulash

Yes, Lisa Loeb is quirky and hot! She is also incredibly talented, and her music is original and infectious. I've been a fan since "Stay," and it's nice to see a "best of" collection. Most of my favorite songs made it on this album - it seems like a well-chosen collection.

Edie Brickell and New Bohemians -What I Am - RocknRoll Goulash

Along with Tracy Chapman and 10,000 Maniacs, Edie Brickell invented the nineties back in 1988. This work of quirky rockin' charismatic singin' pop helped to transform hip alternative into mainstream. In short, it is excellent. Some of the slow numbers are a bit long, but the faster ones are to die for.

Jewel -Who Will Save Your Soul - RocknRoll Goulash

This album really reminds me of why I fell in love with Jewel in the first place. I have no complaints about the track listing. All the hits are here although a few other not so commercial hits could've been added or maybe some acoustic songs from her MTV Unplugged gig which has yet to be released.

Laurie Anderson -O Superman - RocknRoll Goulash

"Difficult Music" is a track composed by Laurie Anderson to introduce one of her song / stories. It's also an excellent way to describe a majority of her work. She has never been a pop artist. So it's misleading to think this collection is a "greatest hits" retrospective.

Chicks on Speed -Super Surfer Girl - RocknRoll Goulash

This is my first COS album and it is quite a spectacular venture into electronic pop territory. If I had to describe Chicks on Speed I would have to say that they are poppy, electronic, artzy, poetic, spoken word stream of consciousness, dancey, and even sultry and jazzy - and that is a mouth full.

Melanie -Brand New Key - RocknRoll Goulash

For those of you unfamiliar with the music of Melanie (born Melanie Anne Safka-Schekeryk), this CD is a great opportunity for you to hear the best of this wonderful and very overlooked singer.

Eartha Kitt -Where is my Man - RocknRoll Goulash

This review is from: Best Of: Where Is My Man (Audio CD) What can I say about the beautiful & unique Miss Kitt? No one in the world can obtain such a voice set to classic NRG music. Eartha is on my top ten list of IMPORTANT people & things in my life.

Blondie - Rapture - RocknRoll Goulash

I completely forgot that the wondeful song "Call Me" was never included on any of Blondie's albums. Well, someone at the record company was very kind to include it here. Also included is "Suzy and Jeffrey" the B-side of The Tide is High single.

Annabella lwin and Bow Wow Wow -I Want Candy - RocknRoll Goulash

Bow Wow Wow have always been just a band that only a few people have heard of , let alone listened to, but they have always deserved a lot more than this.

Patti Smith - Smells Like Teen Spirit - RocknRoll Goulash

This review is from: Twelve (Audio CD) Patti's always had a way with cover songs. In the early days, she'd begin her gigs with the Velvet Underground's "We're Gonna Have a Real Good Time Together." She's always had a tendency towards wacky - I've seen her cover "Tomorrow" from Annie and "You Light Up My Life" in concerts.

Nena - 99 Luftballons - RocknRoll Goulash

"Nena - One of the best from Germany" By This review is from: 99 Luftballons (Audio CD) As one who enjoys music with German and Scandanavian origins , this was and is a truly brilliant album. Sure 99 Red Balloons is good , if not overplayed . 99 Luftballons is even better .

Berlin-No More Words - RocknRoll Goulash

"Most Underrated Performer Ever" By Berlin-No More Words: Love Life (Audio CD) Terri Nunn is at once a sex goddess and an etheral angel. On this her second album with Berlin, She performs with the shimmering brilliance only the natural posses.

Missing Persons -Walking in L.A. - RocknRoll Goulash

This is one of the greatest recordings in history!! These songs came out in the 1980′s, when disco had died, along with our sex lives. These songs are total F.U.N., they're so wonderfully devoid of any real meaning. Dale Bozzio was the only girl Pop singer besides Debbie Harry who could instill such a campily knowing wink unto each song.

Quarterflash -Harden My Heart - RocknRoll Goulash

OK, so she's (Rindy Ross) a saxophone playing school teacher who made it big in the early 80′s. Aside from that, this is an awesome CD! No 80′s collection is complete without it. And for the record, or is it CD, this disc has the full version of 'Find Another Fool'.

Missing Persons - Words - RocknRoll Goulash

I remember seeing "Words" on MTV so many years ago when I was very young and thought it was pretty weird. I saw "Words" on MTV recently and thought it was pretty weird. But the music on Spring Session M is so well crafted and performed such that I think it's one of the most influential albums of the period.
