From Allmusic:
Paul McCartney retreated from the spotlight of the Beatles by recording his first solo album at his home studio, performing nearly all of the instruments himself. Appropriately, McCartney has an endearingly ragged, homemade quality that makes even its filler -- and there is quite a bit of filler -- rather ingratiating. Only a handful of songs rank as full-fledged McCartney classics, but those songs -- the light folk-pop of "That Would Be Something," the sweet, gentle "Every Night," the ramshackle Beatles leftover "Teddy Boy," and the staggering "Maybe I'm Amazed" (not coincidentally the only rocker on the album) -- are full of all the easy melodic charm that is McCartney's trademark. The rest of the album is charmingly slight, especially if it is read as a way to bring Paul back to earth after the heights of the Beatles. At the time the throwaway nature of much of the material was a shock, but it has become charming in retrospect. Unfortunately, in retrospect it also appears as a harbinger of the nagging mediocrity that would plague McCartney's entire solo career.

Don't Be Fooled by the Name - второй альбом группы из Ньюкасла. Мы буквально только что говорили про их первый диск и ко второму я обещал перейти через несколько дней. Но решил не затягивать и дать возможность всем желающим получить на выходные вместе с этим диском немного энергии и хорошего настроения Очень удачный альбом, возможно одна из лучших работ 70х в нише хард-глэма. Драйв, отличная мелодика и музыка Малколма, великолепный вокал Брайана Джонсона, короче говоря, все вышло здорово. Это отмечали и слушатели и критики, а король каверов House Of The Rising Sun, в интерпретации Geordie оказался, совершенно заслуженно, в британской "двадцатке".
Несмотря на то, что Брайан Джонсон после перехода в AC/DC стал личностью вполне культовой, а альбом, который перед вами, реально хорош, найти его не так просто. Но всегда есть вариант зайти на блог и скачать бесплатно :-) хороший рок, который я с большим удовольствием отцифровал и еще раз послушал. Некоторые из моих знакомых считают, что несмотря на пафосное продолжение карьеры в AC/DC и суперстатус австралийской команды, запись 1974 года в составе Geordie - лучшая в творчестве Брайана Джонсона. В общем, это недалеко от истины. Кстати, как обычно бывает, после очень удачной работы парням уже не удалось сделать ничего, что было бы сравнимо по качеству с этим диском и в 1979 году группа распалась. Брайан покинул ее раньше, еще в начале 1976 и предприняв пару неудачных сольных проектов, в конце-концов оказался рабочим на заправке, пока AC/DC не лишились собственного вокалиста и не призвали Джонсона в свои ряды. Времена были простые...

Hope You Like It - дебютный лонгплей популярной в Англии середины 70х группы, которая была собрана самоучкой-гитаристом Виком Малколмом, бывшим участником Influence и Yellow. Первоначальное название группы звучит для Британии и для банды из Ньюкасла весьма странно - USA. Сам Вик, оправдываясь, пояснял, что в первоначальных планах было исполнение кантри. В состав коллектива влились музыканты из нескольких местных ВИА, басист Том Хилл, барабанщик Брайан Гибсон и вокалист из Buffalo Брайан Джонсон. Если вам покажется, что в нескольких композициях исполнение подозрительно смахивает на AC/DC, просто обратите внимание на нахальную физиономию, которая таращится на вас с правого угла конверта. Конечно же, это тот самый Брайан Джонсон, который через несколько лет занял место покойного Бона Скотта в составе австралийской супергруппы. К 1973 году в активе Geordie уже было несколько удачных синглов.
Парни исполняли мелодичную и агрессивную музыку, которая была выстроена на классическом рок-н-ролле, носила приметы одновременно харда и глэма и здорово воспринималась аудиторией. В общем, по моему мнению, если сравнивать Geordie с другими командами, можно условно назвать этот рок микстом Slade и Sweet, что для меня звучит совсем не отталкивающе, мне нравится эта агрессивная и боевая манера исполнения, поэтому рекомендую скачать альбом Hope You Like It с включенными в список несколькими бонус-треками. Думаю, что альбом 1973 года - одна из лучших работ в творчестве этого коллектива, более чем достойным продолжением которой стала пластинка, выпущенная в следующем, 1974 году.

During their original 1965-1971 lifespan, the Byrds were one of rock’s most consistently inventive and influential bands, embodying the ’60s ideals of restless experimentation and creative risk-taking. Through a lengthy series of artistic evolutions and personnel shifts, the Byrds maintained their place on rock’s cutting edge, with founding visionary Roger McGuinn joined over the years by such legendary figures as Gene Clark, David Crosby, Chris Hillman, Gram Parsons and Clarence White. The musicians’ diverse talents combined to produce one of rock’s richest and most rewarding album catalogs. The Byrds’ first two albums, Mr. Tambourine Man and Turn! Turn! Turn!, gave birth to the folk-rock movement by applying soaring vocal harmonies and jangly 12-string guitars to Bob Dylan songs, traditional folk material and memorable originals. The band’s subsequent releases Fifth Dimension, Younger Than Yesterday and The Notorious Byrd Brothers helped to usher in the psychedelic era. With 1968’s Sweetheart of the Rodeo, featuring new member Gram Parsons, the Byrds became the first major rock act to explore the traditions of country music. After that album, McGuinn reinvented the Byrds once again, with a new lineup featuring the brilliant guitarist Clarence White, for a series of eclectic psychedelic-country-soul albums, including Dr. Byrds and Mr. Hyde, Ballad of Easy Rider.
