  • Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert

    Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert | ALBUM REVIEW

    In a form in which individual instrumental feats are often self-indulgent and superfluous, Eric Clapton's music remains an anomaly. His greatest guitar playing has been as passionate as Otis Redding's best singing and as articulate as Bob...

  • Mott

    Mott | ALBUM REVIEW

    What an array of weapons this band has: awesome firepower, an ever-increasing depth of expression, timely themes and an artistic way of mixing these qualities on record. In terms of my own bias, Mott the Hoople has...

  • Goats Head Soup

    Goats Head Soup | ALBUM REVIEW

    History has proven it unwise to jump to conclusions about Rolling Stones albums. At first Sticky Fingers seemed merely a statement of doper hipness on which the Stones (in Greil Marcus' elegant phrase) "rattled drugs as...

    GP | ALBUM REVIEW

    Gram Parsons is an artist with a vision as unique and personal as those of Jagger-Richard, Ray Davies, or any of the other celebrated figures. Parsons may not have gone to the gate as often as the...

    No. 1 Record/Radio City | ALBUM REVIEW

    #1 Record In the late Sixties, a Memphis teenager named Alex Chilton won moderate fame and fortune as the lead singer for a sometimes inspired, sometimes insipid recording unit known as the Box Tops. The group was a...

  • All The Young Dudes

    All The Young Dudes | ALBUM REVIEW

    Taking what does not belong to you is a crucial part of the process of creating rock & roll: Exploiting proven riffs, phrases and hooks, then adding a few twists of your own — that's how it...

  • Stories We Could Tell

    Stories We Could Tell | ALBUM REVIEW

    The Everly Brothers brought harmony to rock and roll. They also brought sensitivity, the result of their having been weaned on old-time country music. They were the end of one line and beginning of another. They were...

  • The Eagles

    The Eagles | ALBUM REVIEW

  • Bare Trees

    Bare Trees | ALBUM REVIEW

    Fleetwood Mac's last two records, Kiln House and Future Games, have between them provided me with perhaps a hundred hours of enjoyment. And that's the ultimate test of a record's worth. Personally, I was never interested in...

    Jackson Browne | ALBUM REVIEW

    It's not often that a single album is sufficient to place a new performer among the first rank of recording artists. Jackson Browne's long-awaited debut album chimes in its author with the resounding authority of an Astral...
