Feature LP: Aerosmith – Pump (1989) 8p ET

Aerosmith Pump CoverPump is the tenth studio album by American rock band Aerosmith, released in 1989. The album was remastered and reissued in 2001.
Pump incorporates the use of keyboards and a horn section on many of the singles (“Love in an Elevator“, “The Other Side”), and contains straightforward rockers (“F.I.N.E.”, “Young Lust“), the ballad “What It Takes”, songs about issues such as incest and murder (“Janie’s Got a Gun“) and drug and alcohol abuse (“Monkey on My Back“), as well as a variety of instrumental interludes such as “Hoodoo” and “Dulcimer Stomp.”

The album has certified sales of seven million copies in the U.S. to date, and is tied with its successor Get a Grip as Aerosmith’s second best-selling studio album in the U.S. (Toys in the Attic leads with eight million). It produced a variety of successes and “firsts” for the band including their first Grammy Award (“Janie’s Got a Gun”). “Love in an Elevator” became the first Aerosmith song to hit #1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Additionally, it is the only Aerosmith album to date to have three Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and three #1 singles on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The album was the fourth bestselling album of the year 1990. (Source: Wikipedia)

New Music: Katy Perry – Roar

KP-RoarPerry told Billboard in late 2012 about her upcoming album: “I know exactly the record I want to make next. I know the artwork, the coloring and the tone….. I even know what type of tour I’m doing next. I’ll be very pleased if the vision I have in my head becomes a reality”. However, Perry mentioned that she does not want the album to be a “Teenage Dream 2.0”, stating: “That would be silly. It’s not of any interest for me to try and outdo myself at every corner. Eventually you just like pop, explode”. Perry said the record would contain darker elements, departing from her previous sound. Diplo Sia Furler, Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Bonnie McKee have collaborated with her on the album. Songs that have been recorded for the album include “Double Rainbow“, “Bad Photographs”, “It Takes Two”, “Unconditional”, and “Roar”.

Perry reprised her role as Smurfette in The Smurfs 2, which was released in theaters on July 31, 2013. Like its predecessor, it received many negative reviews from critics. Her third fragrance, Killer Queen, is set to be released in August 2013, through Coty, Inc. On July 29, 2013, it was announced that Perry’s fourth studio album would be titled Prism, and is due for release on October 22, 2013.

“Roar” made its debut as the album’s lead single on August 10, 2013 and was released on August 12, 2013 (Source Wikipedia)

 

Feature LP: Journey – Infinity (1978) 10pm ET

j-infinityJourney’s fourth album, Infinity, was released in January 1978 on Columbia Records. It was the band’s first album with vocalist Steve Perry.

Looking for a stronger lead vocalist, Journey briefly enlisted front man Robert Fleischman and even recorded a few tracks, one of which, “For You,” which later appeared on the Time3 collection, and Fleischman’s solo album, Perfect Stranger. Fleischman was soon thereafter replaced by Steve Perry due to musical and management differences. Fleischman would later resurface as the first singer in the Vinnie Vincent Invasion.

With songs like “Feeling That Way” and “Anytime,” Perry shared the vocals with former lead singer and keyboardist Gregg Rolie.

“Patiently” was the first song Perry and Neal Schon wrote together. Perry wrote the lyrics, in which he expresses the sadness of being on the road and away from home, while also expressing admiration for the band’s fans. Schon wrote the music for the song. Other popular singles included “Lights” and “Wheel in the Sky.” The latter was co-written with temporary front man Fleischman.

Journey’s manager, Herbie Herbert, enlisted producer Roy Thomas Baker to engineer “Infinity.” This produced a layered sound approach, similar to his work with Queen, as demonstrated on tracks such as “Winds of March.” In addition, Baker’s method of stacked harmonies, notable on several other albums he produced, became trademarks of Journey’s sound. Baker achieved this by having each vocalist (usually Perry and Rolie, sometimes joined by Valory and/or Schon) sing each harmony part in unison. This had the effect of making three or four voices sound like more, and is notable on the songs “Feeling that Way” and “Anytime,” which are often played in tandem consecutively on radio stations.

The addition of Perry led to a more mainstream sound[citation needed], and helped Journey attain their highest chart success to date. Infinity marked the last appearance of drummer Aynsley Dunbar. -Wikipedia
