Midnight Cowboy Ferrante And Teicher

You might not have heard of them, but I have, so that’s why Midnight Cowboy Ferrante And Teicher is on my website. I care for who I like, besides, I have enough of different artists that I can indulge on my blogs. Skip if you like, but I’m doing this one today, and I hope you read up on them.

Ferrante & Teicher were a duo of American piano players, recognized for their light arrhttp://mckennamusicaljubilee.com/wp-admin/profile.phpangements of familiar classical pieces, film soundtracks, and show tunes, in addition to their trademark style of florid, intricate as well as fast-paced piano playing performances.

I hope you read this one, so you can find the first one, before I upload the third one, (or is it “before I upload the third “three”).

Bob Seger Part Five

It’s been awhile since I done one of his, but in this blog, Bob Seger Part Five, I will complete this series and move on with him on another, in the near future. So I might as well start, to finish, so you can finish reading, what I started.

Later years: 1988 Present

Bob Seger‘s next record was 1991‘s The Fire Inside, at a time when glam metal, grunge and alternative rock were taking the center. His new music found little exposure on radio or elsewhere. The very same was true of 1995‘s It‘s a Mystery, although the album was certified gold (500,000 copies sold). Nevertheless, in 1994, Seger released Greatest Hits; the compilation album was his biggest-ever record in terms of sales, selling almost ten million cop...

To Lulu with Love Part Four

I’m doing To Lulu with Love Part Four, who is just about the best British singer of all times. That one hit “To Sir With Love” has been played on the radio, moire times in my childhood, than most oft the songs today.

1990s

In 1993, Lulu made a recordingreturn with the single Independence which reached # 11 in the UK Singles Chart. This was the title track from the Independence album; all four singles released from this album reached the UK charts, as did two later singles released in 1994. Her second single after Independence was I‘m Back for More, aduet with soul singer Bobby Womack, which charted at # 27.

I can’t believe it, but it’s true, I’m doing Olivia Newton-John Part Four, and it’s better than before. She’s my favorite Australian singer, which says a lot, seeing that there’s so many out there.

Motherhood, Cancer, And Advocacy


In September 1989, Newton-John released her self-described album Tender, which reunited her with producer John Farrar, absent from her previous LP, as well as marked a return to a more wholesome image of herself. Influenced by her daughter, who appeared on the cover, the album featured lullabies and love songs for parents and their children. This album, the last one produced by Farrar, also fell short to revive her recording career, as the disc just reached No. 124 Pop.

I have completed Don Henley Part Two, and I want you to be the first to read it. tell everybody that you were the first, just to make them break down and cry, because it was you who read it first.

Lawsuits With Geffen Records

Henley spent many years in legal entanglements with Geffen Records. In January 1993, following prolonged tensions between Henley and the label, the dispute went public and the record company filed a $30-million breach-of-contract suit in the Superior Court after receiving a notice from Henley saying that he was terminating his contract even though he reportedly owed the company two more studio albums and a greatest-hits collection. Henley wanted to sign a publishing deal with EMI that would have been worth a few million do...
