Thursday 6/30/22 9:30pm ET: Feature LP: Donna Summer – Anthology (1993)

The Donna Summer Anthology is a double compilation album by the American singer Donna Summer, released by Polygram Records in 1993. The compilation featured the majority of Summer’s best known songs right from the start of her success to the present day. Summer had originally made her name during the disco era in the 1970s and in the decade that followed had experimented with different styles. Most of the tracks on this compilation are the original album versions of the songs, which were sometimes edited down for their release as a single. Included for the first time are two remixed tracks from her then previously unreleased I’m a Rainbow album, which had been recorded in 1981 but had been shelved by her record company at the time. The album also featured the Giorgio Moroder-penned and produced song “Carry On”‘, marking the first time Summer and Moroder had worked together since 1981. Summer and Moroder, together with Pete Bellotte had written the vast majority of her 1970s disco hits. Four years later, “Carry On” would be remixed and become a big dance hit. It also won Summer a Grammy for Best Dance Recording, her first win since 1984 and her fifth win in total.

Thursday 6/30/22 8pm ET: Feature LP: Foster The People – Sacred Hearts Club (2017)

Sacred Hearts Club is the third studio album by American indie pop band Foster the People, released on July 21, 2017, through Columbia Records. The album was preceded by the extended play III, which is composed of three tracks from the album. Departing from the organic, acoustic sound of their previous 2014 album, it draws upon soul, dance, and electronic genres while maintaining their signature indie pop sound. The lyrics address themes of love, politics, fame, and youth, and, similar to their previous albums, are often at odds with the upbeat musical production. This is also their first studio album to feature long-time touring musicians Isom Innis and Sean Cimino as official members. It received primarily mixed reviews upon release, with many critics praising the experimentation while disliking the album’s lack of musical consistency. Despite the mixed reception, the album’s single “Sit Next to Me” has reached a peak of number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold over two million copies across North America.

Thursday 6/30/22 7pm ET: Feature LP: Martika (1988)

Martika is the debut studio album by former child actor and teen pop singer Martika, released October 18, 1988 through CBS Records.

The album marked the solo debut for Martika, and spawned the American #1 single “Toy Soldiers”. The song is about drug addiction, but can sound like a break-up ballad. The song was later sampled by rapper Eminem for his 2004 song “Like Toy Soldiers” featuring Martika as the chorus singer. Songs that charted internationally included “More Than You Know”, “Water”, and “I Feel the Earth Move”, a Carole King cover that cracked the American Top 25. Stylistically the music was strictly pop, despite exploring some adult topics lyrically. The song “Water” is partially sung in Spanish, an homage to Martika’s Cuban ancestry. Other songs were re-recorded fully in Spanish for international release.

Invisible Touch is the 13th studio album by the English rock band Genesis, released on June 6, 1986 by Atlantic Records in the United States and June 9, 1986 by Charisma and Virgin Records in the United Kingdom. After taking a break in group activity for each member to continue with their solo projects in 1984, the band reconvened in October 1985 to write and record Invisible Touch with engineer and producer Hugh Padgham. As with their previous album, it was written entirely through group improvisations and no material developed prior to recording was used.

Invisible Touch was a worldwide success and reached No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and No. 3 on the US Billboard 200. It remains the band’s highest selling album after it was certified multi-platinum for over 1.2 million copies sold in the UK and 6 million sold in the US. Genesis became the first band and foreign act to have five singles from one album reach the top five on the US Billboard Hot 100, with “Invisible Touch” being their first and only song to reach No. 1 on the charts. The album received mixed reviews upon its release and retrospectively, with several reviews, both positive and negative, observing its similarity to Collins’s solo records and their commercial pop-oriented sound. In 2007, the album was re-released with new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes.

It was certified as Diamond in sales in Canada and as 8× Platinum in sales in the US. Critical reviews were mixed; some of the more positive reviews praised the songwriting, while the album’s detractors criticized it as banal and slow.

The album spawned three top-three hits on the Canadian Singles Chart, including “Building a Mystery”, which spent 8 weeks at number one, “Sweet Surrender”, which reached number two, and “Adia” which ascended to number three. The fourth single “Angel” peaked at number nine, but did reach number three on the Canadian Adult Contemporary Chart, something the other three singles also achieved. Two of the songs, “Adia” and “Angel” were US Billboard Hot 100 top-five hits (the latter also peaking at number one on the Billboard Adult Contemparary Chart) while “Building a Mystery” was a top-15 hit and “Sweet Surrender” was a top-30 hit. “Adia” and “Angel” became her first songs to reach the top 40 in some countries outside of North America.

Tuesday 6/28/22 10pm ET: Feature LP: Squeeze – Babylon and On (1987)

Babylon and On is the seventh album released September 15, 1987 by the British new wave group Squeeze.

The album gave them their biggest US hit single, “Hourglass.” The song became an unexpected US hit for the band, reaching number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, which Chris Difford attributed to the video for the song as much as the song itself: “I would think that the video has had a lot to do with it. It’s been played a lot, and everybody you speak to compliments you on it. When you meet fans after gigs, they say, “Your video’s great.” They don’t say, “Your album’s great.” So it’s the first thing they think of.”
