Ace - How Long / Sniffin´ About (1974) - single

Ace were a British rock band, who enjoyed moderate success in the 1970s. Their membership included Paul Carrack, who later became famous as the lead vocalist of Mike + The Mechanics and as a solo artist. Ace are best known for their hit single "How Long?", which was a UK top-20 single in 1974 and reached No 3 in the US in 1975.
The band was formed in December 1972 in Sheffield as 'Ace Flash and the Dynamos', but this name was quickly abbreviated to just Ace.[ The members were assembled from various other professional bands. Carrack and Comer had previously played with Warm Dust, and King with Mighty Baby, whose antecedents were the 1960s band The Action. Ace were popular on the pub rock circuit. Their music was pop with a funk influence. "How Long" is a 1974 song from their album “Five-A-Side”.
Although widely interpreted as being about adultery, the song was in fact composed by lead singer Paul Carrack upon discovering that bassist Terry Comer had been secretly working with other bands. Comer returned to Ace in time to play on the song.

Hamilton Bohannon - Foot Stompin´ Music / Dance With Your Parno (1975) - single

Hamilton Frederick Bohannon (born March 7, 1942), often credited and known professionally simply as Bohannon, is an American percussionist, band leader, songwriter and record producer, who was one of the leading figures in 1970s disco music.
He was born in Newnan, Georgia, and learned the drums at school. He began playing in local bands, one of which featured guitarist Jimi Hendrix, before graduating from Clark College, Atlanta with a degree in music and secondary education. After a brief period as a schoolteacher, he was recruited in 1964 as drummer in 13-year-old Stevie Wonder's touring band. He moved to Detroit in 1967, where he was employed by Motown as the leader and arranger of Bohannon & The Motown Sound, who provided backing for many of the label's top acts on tour, including Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Diana Ross and the Supremes, The Four Tops and others.
When Motown moved from Detroit to Los Angeles, Bohannon stayed behind to form his own ensemble, featuring members of local band, The Fabulous Counts and including such musicians as Ray Parker Jr. and Dennis Coffey. He signed in 1972 with the Dakar label run by producer Carl Davis, and released his debut album Stop & Go in early 1973. This was followed by five more albums for the label over the next two years, on which he "perfected his formula of heavy, thudding bass accents and aggressive rhythms". Although several of his tracks were club hits, he had limited chart success. His first hit single, in 1974, was "South African Man", which reached no.78 on the Billboard R&B chart but had more success in the UK, where it reached no.22 on the pop chart. This was followed up in 1975 by "Foot Stompin Music" - his only record to reach the US Hot 100.

Jay Ferguson - Thunder Island / Love Is Gold (1977) - single

Jay Ferguson (born John Arden Ferguson; May 10, 1947) is an American rock/pop musician, known for his work with Spirit and Jo Jo Gunne, and his 1978 solo hit "Thunder Island".
"Thunder Island" is the lead single off of the album “Thunder Island”. The song reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1978.
Despite the song's fairly high position on the music charts, the song receives little rotation on most modern classic rock radio stations, although it is Ferguson's most well-known song. It features American musician Joe Walsh on guitar. As this was Ferguson's only major hit as a solo artist, he is often tagged a one-hit wonder. His later career has been as a composer of music for television programs and films.

Roger - I Heard It Through The Grapevine (Part 1) / I Heard It Through The Grapevine (Part 2) (1981) - single

Roger Troutman (November 29, 1951 – April 25, 1999) was an American composer, songwriter, producer and the founder of the band Zapp who helped spearhead the funk movement and heavily influenced west coast hip hop due to the scene's heavy sampling of his music over the years. Troutman was well known for his use of the vocoder or the talk box, a device that is connected to an instrument (frequently a keyboard) to create different vocal effects. Roger used a custom-made talkbox the Electro Harmonix "Golden Throat," as well as a Yamaha DX100 FM synthesizer. As both band leader of Zapp and in his subsequent solo releases, he scored a bevy of funk and R&B hits throughout the 1980s.
In 1981, upon the fast-paced success of Zapp's first album, Troutman cut his first solo album, “The Many Facets of Roger”. Featuring his frenetic funk cover of Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", the song exploded to number one on the R&B singles chart helping the album sell over a million copies.

Bad Manners - My Girl Lollipop / Flashpoint (1982) - single

Bad Manners are an English ska band led by frontman Buster Bloodvessel.
They were at their most popular during the early 1980s, during a period when other ska revival bands such as Madness, The Specials and The Selecter filled the charts. Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK Singles Chart between 1980 and 1983, and they also achieved chart success with their first four studio albums with “Gosh It's... Bad Manners”, “Loonee Tunes!” and “Ska 'n' B” being their biggest hits. "My Boy Lollipop" (originally "My Girl Lollypop") is a song written in the mid-1950s by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs, and usually credited to Spencer, Morris Levy, and Johnny Roberts. It was first recorded in New York in 1956 by Barbie Gaye. A later version, recorded in 1964 by Jamaican teenager Millie Small, with very similar rhythm, became one of the top selling ska songs of all time. A cover version by Bad Manners, re-titled "My Girl Lollipop (My Boy Lollipop)", was a UK Top 10 hit in July 1982.

The Knack - Good Girls Don´t / Frustrated (1979) - single

"Good Girls Don't" is a 1979 hit single written by Doug Fieger and released by the rock band The Knack, off their album “Get the Knack”. It was the follow-up to the group's number-one hit single, "My Sharona". "Good Girls Don't" was a No. 1 single in Canada. The song has since been covered by a number of artists, including The Chipmunks, Ben Folds, The Chubbies and The McRackins.
Fieger originally wrote "Good Girls Don't" in 1972, and claimed that he wrote the song with Johnny Cash's voice in mind. He had included it on three or four demos in various attempts to get a recording contract, including with The Knack. It was also one of the first songs The Knack recorded. They had made a demo which included "Good Girls Don't" and "That's What Little Girls Do" in 1978, despite which the band was turned down multiple times in their efforts to get their first record contract. By the time The Knack was recording “Get the Knack”, he was tired of the song and reluctant to record it, but was convinced by producer Mike Chapman to attempt one take. That one take was used on the album.

Huey Lewis & The News - I Want A New Drug / Finally Found A Home (1983) - single

"I Want a New Drug" is a song by American rock band Huey Lewis and the News from their third album Sports. It was released as the second single from the album, following the top-ten hit "Heart and Soul" in January 1984. The single reached number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Dance Club Play chart.
When the theme song of the 1984 film Ghostbusters was released, Huey Lewis sued Ray Parker Jr. for plagiarism, claiming that Parker had stolen the melody from "I Want a New Drug". Lewis had been approached to compose the main theme song for the film, but had to decline because of his work on the soundtrack for “Back to the Future”.

Jacques Herb - Voorbij / Zigeunerlied (1977) - single

Jacques Herb, pseudoniem van Jack van Herp (Rotterdam, 28 mei 1946), is een Nederlandse zanger van het levenslied die in 1970 een talentenjacht op televisie met het noveltynummer El Toreador. Het levert hem een bescheiden hit en een platencontract bij Elf Provinciën op, waar hij onder de hoede van Pierre Kartner komt.
Deze vertaalt voor hem het melodrama “Manuela” uit het Duits. De single wordt een enorme hit.
Na een breuk met Kartner in 1973 raakt de carrière van Jacques Herb in het slop. Hij verhuist naar België waar hij optreedt in revue's met eigen repertoire ook opera-, musical- en operettenummers. Hij neemt zanglessen bij de Antwerpse professor Marcel Vercammen. Maar een carrière in de klassieke muziek komt niet van de grond.  Pierre Kartner nam hem weer onder zijn hoede en ze doken uit het grijze verleden de grote hit van Rita Ketty “Chante Encore Dans La Nuit” op. Het werd vertaald en kreeg als titel “Voorbij”.

Queen & David Bowie - Under Pressure / Queen - Soul Brother (1981) - single

"Under Pressure" is a 1981 song originally recorded by Queen and David Bowie, and later included on Queen's 1982 album “Hot Space”. The song reached number one on the UK Singles Chart, becoming the group's second number-one hit in their native country (after 1975's "Bohemian Rhapsody".
Queen had been working on the song under the title "Feel Like" but were not yet satisfied with the result. David Bowie had originally come to Mountain Studios to sing backing vocals on another Queen song, "Cool Cat", although his vocals were removed from the final song as he was not satisfied with his performance. Once he got there, they worked together for a while and wrote the song. The final version that became "Under Pressure" evolved from a jam session that Bowie had with the band at Queen's studio in Montreux, Switzerland; therefore it was credited as co-written by the five musicians. The scat singing that dominates much of the song is evidence of the jam-beginnings as improvisation. According to Queen bassist John Deacon (as quoted in a French magazine in 1984), however, the song's primary or main musical songwriter was Freddie Mercury though all contributed to the arrangement. Brian May recalled to Mojo magazine in October 2008 that, "It was hard, because you had four very precocious boys and David, who was precocious enough for all of us. David took over the song lyrically. Looking back, it's a great song but it should have been mixed differently. Freddie and David had a fierce battle over that. It's a significant song because of David and its lyrical content." The earlier, embryonic version of the song without Bowie, "Feel Like", is widely available in bootleg form, and was written by Queen drummer Roger Taylor.
The song was played live at every Queen concert from 1981 until the end of Queen's touring career in 1986.

Gary Fane - Aquarius / Leo (1980) - single

“Horoscope: Musical Interpretation Of The Zodiac” is een ambitieus, orkestraal conceptalbum uit 1980 van zanger en arrangeur Gary Fane. Geert Veen komt uit Groningen en speelt na zijn verhuizing naar Amsterdam vanaf 1964 als bassist in Johnny Kendall & The Heralds, bekend van de hitsingle St. James Infirmary. Veen levert ook compositiebijdragen voor de band. Na 1969 werkt hij drie jaar met Tony Alberti, de broer van Willeke Alberti, met wie hij drie singles opneemt. In de periode van de repetities met de band Breeze in 1972, samen met gitarist Fred Jansen en toetsenist Ed van Toorenburg, krijgt hij een aanbod mee te spelen in theatergroep Funhouse. Een opdracht voor het schrijven van muziek bij een film over het sterrenbeeld Waterman, inspireert Geert Veen tot een album over alle twaalf sterrenbeelden. Hij werkt het idee uit samen Fred Jansen. “Horoscope” wordt door producer Jaap Eggermont opgenomen in de FPS Studio te Hilversum en Soundpush Studios te Blaricum. De orkestopnamen vinden plaats in de Music Centre Studio in Londen met dirigenten Dick Bakker en Hans Hollestelle. Ook Jan Rietman is als arrangeur bij het project betrokken. De single “Aquarius” behaalt in 1980 de tiende plaats in de Top 40. Lezers van de Hitkrant roepen de zanger in 1982 uit tot meest belovende Nederlandse artiest voor 1982. Met Jansen en Van Toorenburg neemt Gary Fane voor Ariola een volgend album op, maar uiteindelijk blijft het bij de uitgave van de single Love (1982) . Geert Veen is vanuit woonplaats Oostzaan nog steeds muzikaal actief.

Little River Band - It´s A Long Way There / Meanwhile (1975) - single

Little River Band are a soft rock band originally formed in Melbourne, Australia, in March 1975. The band achieved commercial success, not only in Australia but also in the United States.
Little River Band recorded their first track, a cover version of the Everly Brothers' song, "When Will I Be Loved", at Armstrong Studios, but Linda Ronstadt's version appeared in March 1975 – so LRB did not release theirs. Before the group began playing concerts, Davidge was replaced by Ric Formosa on guitar, and Orams by Roger McLachlan on bass guitar and backing vocals. In May 1975 they signed with EMI Records and started recording their debut self-titled album, at Armstrong Studios in June. The album was co-produced by Birtles, Goble, Shorrock and Wheatley. Their debut single, "Curiosity (Killed the Cat)", had appeared in September, reaching No. 15 on the related Kent Music Report Singles Chart. Two more singles followed, "Emma" (January 1976) and "It's a Long Way There" (November 1976).

Rex Smith & Rachel Sweet - Everlasting Love / Still Thinking Of You / Billy And The Gun (1981) - single

"Everlasting Love" reached the Top 40 for the third time in the summer of 1981 via a duet version cut by Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet; this version features revised lyrics including an additional verse of uncredited authorship which was approved by the song's composers.
The track marked the Columbia debut of Sweet who'd previously recorded two albums for the new wave oriented Stiff label. According to Sweet upon submitting the tracks intended to comprise her first album for Columbia - all original songs produced by Pete Solly - she was told: "we'd like you to cut some more songs. And we'd like it if they weren't yours." Columbia was hoping that augmenting Sweet's album with outside material produced by Rick Chertoff - then best known for his work with Air Supply - would provide Sweet with a commercial breakout, with "Everlasting Love" in particular being recorded for its perceived hit potential. In keeping with the trend for duets prevalent in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Sweet was paired on "Everlasting Love" with another Columbia artist who was being produced by Chertoff: Rex Smith, who had reached #10 in 1979 with "You Take My Breath Away": their duet on "Everlasting Love" was featured on both Sweet's “And Then He Kissed Me” album and the album “Everlasting Love” by Smith and the single was a two-track B-side featuring Sweet's "Billy and the Gun" and Smith's "Still Thinking of You" respectively taken from each singer's last-named album.
With neither Smith nor Sweet being a strong Top 40 force, their collaboration on "Everlasting Love" would only generate qualified chart impact: the single peaked at #32 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1981.
