Album Review

Dennis MacDonald [allmusic.com]

Featuring Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound" in its prime and his early stable of artists, the Ronettes, Crystals, Darlene Love, and Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans, A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector stands as inarguably the greatest Christmas record of all time. Spector believed he could produce a record for the holidays that would capture not only the essence of the Christmas spirit, but also be a pop masterpiece that would stand against any work these artists had already done. He succeeded on every level, with all four groups/singers recording some of their most memorable performances. This is the Christmas album by which all later holiday releases had to be judged, and it has inspired a host of imitators.

Album Reveiw

John Williams composed the theme for the Olympiad, "Olympic Fanfare and Theme". This piece won a Grammy for Williams and became one of the most well-known musical themes of the Olympic Games, along with Leo Arnaud's "Bugler's Dream"; the latter is sometimes attached to the beginning of Olympic Fanfare and Theme. Composer Bill Conti also wrote a song to inspire the weightlifters called "Power". An album, The Official Music of the XXIII Olympiad, Los Angeles 1984, featured three of those tracks along with sports themes written for the occasion by popular musical artists including Foreigner, Toto, Loverboy, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Christopher Cross, Philip Glass and Giorgio Moroder. The album was released on Columbia Records and the catalogue number was BJS 39322. [wikipedia.org]

Album Review

Michael Sutton [allmusic.com]

When it appeared in 1985, USA for Africa's "We Are the World" was viewed as '80s pop stars finally gaining a social conscience. Although it eventually became so overplayed that many radio stations never spun it anymore as the decade closed, "We Are the World" was produced with the best of intentions. A year earlier a group of British chart toppers and new wave icons -- such as George Michael, Boy George, Bono, Midge Ure, and Bananarama -- collaborated as Band Aid and recorded "Do They Know It's Christmas?" to help end world hunger. The single sold more than three million copies in the U.K. Singer Harry Belafonte developed the idea of creating an American version of Band Aid called USA for Africa, one that would help the starving people in Ethiopia. Belafonte then phoned three of his pals -- Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, and producer Quincy Jones -- told them his idea. Richie and Jackson wrote "We Are the World" in two hours.

On January 28, 1985, 45 vocalists including Richie, Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Kenny Rogers, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper, and Bob Dylan gathered at the A&M Recording Studios to sing "We Are the World." The session was scheduled to take place after the American Music Awards to ensure the availability of the musicians. The artists were asked to "Check your egos at the door," and 21 of them were given brief but memorable lead solo performances. On March 23, 1985, "We Are the World" debuted at number 21 on the Billboard charts; it hit number one on April 13, 1985, immediately selling more than 800,000 copies. "We Are the World" was number one for four weeks in the U.S. It was even played on over 5,000 radio stations simultaneously on April 5, 1985. "We Are the World" eventually sold 7.5 million copies in America, raising 50 million dollars for famine relief. The accompanying compilation LP USA for Africa: We Are the World, featuring unreleased tracks from Prince and Bruce Springsteen, among others, was one of the year's best-selling albums. "We Are the World" won Song of the Year and Record of the Year honors from the Grammy Awards. The format of Band Aid and USA for Africa continued to be duplicated nearly two decades later.

Album Review

Whitney Z. Gomes [allmusic.com]

In the vapid video age, music often overshadowed the accompanying movie. While most of these soundtracks slipped through the cracks and into obscurity or the delete bins, some (Footloose, Flashdance) became blockbusters. White Nights definitely belongs to that elite second group, because unlike most vinyl film collections, the platter actually survived the transition to CD. The successful sales of White Nights are directly linked to the Academy Award-nominated smash single "Separate Lives," wherein movie maestro Stephen Bishop supplies Phil Collins with another ubiquitous '80s number one via a consummate adult contemporary duet. Unfortunately, Marilyn Martin, the female faction of this tragic breakup bit, couldn't quite parlay the song's success into a solo career. Meanwhile, fresh from Ambrosia, David Pack flies alone on "Prove Me Wrong." Otherwise, listeners get forgotten folks like Jenny Burton and Sandy Stewart joining forgotten tracks by Robert Plant and Lou Reed. An enjoyable plate of arcana, the most notable aspect of White Nights is the glaring omission of Lionel Richie's Oscar-winning sap standard, "Say You Say Me," which is featured in the film and hit the high spot but is not included here.
