Thanks for the tip on the George Benson Abbey Road album vinyl master! 8)

I hadn't come across that one before and it looks like a very good one.

Yes, it was also arranged by Don Sebesky, who did the arrangements on my favorite album of Wes Montgomery's, "Bumpin'"...In fact, if you dig early George and nice laidback guitar work, you should look for some Wes!

I picked up a few from this series from time life at a yard sale the other day for a dollar each. They have some good pop music, and all original versions too.

It doesn't cost a fortune to have good music if you are willing to shop around and don't mind using different formats.

G'day Folks.

I recently picked this up for $1 at our local RSPCA Op Shop. Mint condition, made in the U.S. 1983...

I had never heard this before and Man! I was not disappointed. I have also just learned that he played most of the instruments and was 19 years old at the time. An amazing Album and achievement.

This one has been on rotation recently too. I can safely write that Devin Townsend has been my favourite artist for the last ten years...

On youtube one day I stumbled onto this one...

Another side of Devin I did not know, until recently. A beautiful Country Rock Album with Che Aimee Dorval, stellar production by the man himself.

Cheers, Ant.

That Rhino set is great, Tink! The "Vol. 2" is as good, if not better...

https://www.discogs.com/Aretha-Franklin ... se/3693679

They need a "Vol. 3" that covers the 80's and 90's...Here's what I would put on it...

Who's Zoomin' Who
Freeway Of Love
Jump To It
I Knew You Were Waiting For Me (duet with George Michael)
United Together
Get It Right
Love All The Hurt Away (Duet with George Benson)
Everyday People (Remix)
A Rose Is Still A Rose
Wonderful
Through The Storm (Duet with Elton John)
Come To Me
Another Night
Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves (Duet with The Eurythmics)
Jumpin' Jack Flash
Gimme Your Love (Duet with James Brown)
Ever Changing Times (Duet with Michael McDonald)
Willing To Forgive

The tracklisting is not set in stone, but those are some pretty good highlights from the latter part of her career...Rhino should pick up on this! :wink:
