Monday 12/5/22 4pm ET: Feature LP: Irene Cara – What A Feelin’ (1983)

What a Feelin’ is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Irene Cara. Released on November 2, 1983, this album is a continuation of the work that Cara began with producer Giorgio Moroder on the soundtrack to the 1983 film Flashdance. The dance-pop song she co-wrote with Moroder and Keith Forsey for the film, “Flashdance… What a Feeling”, went to number one on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 and foreshadowed the style of this album, which was unlike her R&B-heavy debut. Although Cara was more accustomed to composing music, she relinquished most of those duties to Moroder here and shifted much of her songwriting focus to lyrics.

The title of the album clued in record buyers to the inclusion of the soundtrack hit from the spring of that year, but another four songs would make the Hot 100, the first of which, “Why Me?”, had been released in October. “The Dream (Hold On to Your Dream)” from the D.C. Cab soundtrack became the second new single when that movie was released in December, four months earlier than planned. Since the song was not on the original pressings of What a Feelin’, those copies were removed from store shelves so that the album could be re-released to include it. The other two Hot 100 entries were Cara’s last top ten hit, “Breakdance”, and the one track on the album for which she did write the music, “You Were Made for Me”.

The album received mixed-to-positive reviews and was moderately successful, reaching number 77 on Billboard’s album chart. But while Cara was having hit records and receiving awards for “Flashdance… What a Feeling”, she was also feeling ripped off by her record company, Network Records, and planning to sue. The lawsuit she filed resulted in a backlash that destroyed her reputation in the entertainment industry. It would be eight years before the courts would acknowledge the harm she suffered and she would begin receiving royalties for the recordings she had made since signing with the label.

Sunday 12/4/22 3pm ET: Feature LP: R.E.M. – Reckoning (1984)

Reckoning (alternatively titled File Under Water) is the second studio album by American alternative rock band R.E.M., released on April 9, 1984 by I.R.S. Records. Produced by Mitch Easter and Don Dixon, the album was recorded at Reflection Sound Studio in Charlotte, North Carolina, over 16 days in December 1983 and January 1984. Dixon and Easter intended to capture the sound of R.E.M.’s live performances, and used binaural recording on several tracks. Lead singer Michael Stipe dealt with darker subject matter in his lyrics, with water-related imagery being a recurring theme on the album.

Released to critical acclaim, Reckoning reached number 27 in the United States—where it was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1991—and peaked at number 91 in the United Kingdom.

Friday 12/2/22 10pm ET: Feature LP: Rolling Stones – Steel Wheels (1989)

Steel Wheels is the 19th British and 21st American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones. Released on August 19, 1989, it was the final album of new material the band would record for Columbia Records.

Heralded as a major comeback upon its release, the project is notable for the patching up of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards’ relationship, a reversion to a more classic style of music and the launching of the band’s biggest world tour to date. It is also long-time bassist Bill Wyman’s final full-length studio album with the Stones, preceding the announcement of his departure in January 1993. Wyman’s final tenure with the band would be on two studio tracks for 1991’s Flashpoint. It was also the first album not to feature former member and frequent contributor on piano Ian Stewart, who died shortly before the release of their previous album Dirty Work. It was produced by Richards and Jagger along with Chris Kimsey, who had previously produced 1983’s Undercover.

After the relative disappointment of their prior two albums, Steel Wheels was a hit, reaching multi-platinum status in the United States, reaching top-five status in numerous markets around the world, and spawning two hit singles: “Mixed Emotions,” which peaked at number one in Canada and number five in the United States, and “Rock and a Hard Place,” the band’s last top-40 U.S. hit. Critics were generally lukewarm on the album, exemplified by Stephen Thomas Erlewine: “It doesn’t make for a great Stones album, but it’s not bad, and it feels like a comeback.”

Live at the Fillmore 1997 is a 2022 live album compiling Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 20-concert residency at The Fillmore in San Francisco in January and February 1997. The album includes fifty-eight tracks pulled primarily from the last six concerts performed in the residency. Those six shows were professionally recorded and tracks from the setlists in those shows have seen previously release on The Live Anthology and the 2020 expanded reissue of Petty’s 1994 album Wildflowers.

Tom Petty considered the residency by the Heartbreakers at the Fillmore “a highlight of his career” and guitarist Mike Campbell labeled the concerts “some of my favorite gigs ever.” During the final concert at the Fillmore, Petty remarked to the audience that, “We all feel this might be the highpoint of our time together as a group… It’s going to be hard to get us off this stage tonight.”

In addition to a selection of the Heartbreakers and Tom Petty’s solo tracks from their career by 1997, the residency and the album documented the band’s music interests and featured performances by guests such as Roger McGuinn and John Lee Hooker. Out of the fifty-eight songs included in the collection, thirty-five are covers of songs by those that influenced, inspired, or performed with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The first two singles released from the set in September and October 2022 highlighted performances of “Listen to Her Heart” and “I Won’t Back Down”, while the third single released in early November 2022, “Call Me the Breeze,” showcased one of two tracks originally by J.

Thursday 12/1/22 11pm ET: Feature LP: Roxy Music – Avalon (1982)

Avalon is the eighth and final studio album by English rock band Roxy Music, released on May 28,1982 by E.G. Records, and Polydor. It was recorded between 1981 and 1982 at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, and is regarded as the culmination of the smoother, more adult-oriented sound of the band’s later work.

The first single, “More Than This”, preceded the album and was a top 10 hit in Britain, Australia, and several European countries. “Avalon”, the second single, reached the top 20; “Take a Chance With Me” reached the top 30. In the United States, “More Than This” and “Take a Chance with Me” reached 103 and 104.

Avalon is Roxy Music’s most successful studio album. It stayed at number one on the UK Albums Chart for three weeks, and stayed on the chart for over a year. Although it reached only No. 53 in the US, Avalon endured as a sleeper hit and became Roxy Music’s only million-selling US record, ultimately receiving platinum certification.

Cruisin’ is the third studio album by the American disco group Village People, released on September 25, 1978. Its title is a double entendre: it may mean just driving around or gay cruising.

Features the hits “Hot Cop” and “Y.M.C.A.” which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

The album was briefly rereleased in 2003 as YMCA in continental Europe.
