Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach first collaborated on "God Give Me Strength," a sweeping ballad that functioned as the centerpiece in Allison Anders' Grace of My Heart. It was a stunning song in the tradition of Bacharach's classic '60s work and it was successful enough that the composers decided to collaborate on a full album, Painted from Memory. Wisely, they chose to work within the stylistic parameters of Bacharach's '60s material, but Painted from Memory never sounds like a stylistic exercise. Instead, it's a return to form for both artists. Bacharach hasn't written such graceful, powerful melodies since his glory days, and Costello hasn't crafted such a fully realized album since King of America. It's a testament to both that even if the album is clearly in Bacharach's territory, it feels like a genuine collaboration.

Claudia has enjoyed enormous popularity since the 1980s when she fronted the synthpop bands Propaganda and Act. The new solo album follows Cherry Reds expanded 2CD re-issue of Claudias debut solo album Love: And A Million Other Things. 'Where Else' is a collaboration with co-writer and producer John Williams (Housemartins, Proclaimers, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Blancmange, Petula Clark). 'Where Else' follows the lyrical thread of Claudias debut solo album 'Love And A Million Other Things'. The album is not only a collection of moods and styles but a further examination of the vagaries of love; exploring emotion, beginnings, endings, past life and future hopes.

Welsh composer, viola terrorist, and art rocker John Cale remains a unique link between "dirty ass rock & roll" (as one '70s mission statement was titled), the avant garde and classicism–a droll, thoughtful musician who studied with John Cage, joined the Velvet Underground, and went on to craft a series of often divergent post-Velvets solo projects. Early projects that confronted the clash of classicism and pop head-on, like The Academy In Peril and the classic Paris 1919, which mixed string sections with electric slide guitars, gave way to more stripped-down, primal rock in the '70s, but Cale's music has always left a door open to musical and thematic invention. This intelligently assembled two-CD anthology offers a smart entry point into a beguiling maze of Cale personae. –Sam Sutherland

Lindsey Buckingham hadn't recorded a studio album with Fleetwood Mac in 16 years when Say You Will was released in April 2003. His partner, Stevie Nicks, had been missing in action from the group since 1990, and while both joined the reunited group in 1997 for a tour and live album (The Dance), not to mention Bill Clinton's 1993 inauguration, it had been a long, long time since the two made new music for the Mac…

originally a british manufacturer of televisions and radios, pye records was formed in 1959 with a vision to release pop music by british artists. pye was the last of the major record companies to release a 45rpm single, but once it finally embraced the format in 1960 both pye and it’s little sister, piccadilly records, gave these british girls their voice and spawned a host of fantastic femme-pop 45s that provided the soundtrack to the colourful, confident and downright fun place that was swinging sixties britain, and it is in these companies catalogues that we find our inspiration for this compilation of some of the finest british female pop ever recorded. it includes hits & obscure songs from petula clark, tawny reed, val mckenna, the caravelles, sandra barry and many more.
