 Daryl Braithwaite [Aust Artist] - Discography

As the lead singer of one Australia's most popular acts of the '70s, teen pop/rock outfit Sherbet, Daryl Braithwaite found concurrent success as a solo artist, taking his first single, a cover of "You're My World," to number one in 1974. Before the end of the decade, he charted seven more times as a soloist. After his band split in 1984, Braithwaite made a successful comeback in 1988 with the album Edge. Embracing a still highly melodic but more slickly produced adult contemporary sound, it took him to the top of Australia's album chart. He continued to find the charts with periodic album releases into the 2010s.

Buddy Holly [RIP] - Discography 320kbps Bitrate

Buddy Holly


Charles Hardin Holley (September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959), known as Buddy Holly, was an American musician, singer-songwriter and record producer who was a central and pioneering figure of mid-1950s rock and roll.

He was born in Lubbock, Texas, to a musical family during the Great Depression, and learned to play guitar and sing alongside his siblings.

His style was influenced by gospel music, country music, and rhythm and blues acts, and he performed in Lubbock with his friends from high school.

He made his first appearance on local television in 1952, and the following year he formed the group "Buddy and Bob" with his friend Bob Montgomery.

In 1955, after opening for Elvis Presley, he decided to pursue a career in music. He opened for Presley three times that year; his band's style shifted from country and western to entirely rock and roll. In October that year, when he opened for Bill Haley & His Comets, he was spotted by Nashville scout Eddie Crandall, who helped him get a contract with Decca Records.

Leo Sayer - Discography

Leo Sayer (born Gerard Sayer) had a string of highly polished mainstream pop hits in the late '70s. Sayer began his musical career as the leader of the London-based Terraplane Blues Band in the late '60s. He formed Patches with drummer Dave Courtney in 1971; Courtney had previously played with British pop star Adam Faith. Faith was starting a management career in the early '70s, so Courtney brought Patches to his former employer in hopes of securing a contract. Patches failed to impress Faith, yet he liked Sayer and chose to promote him as a solo artist. Sayer began recording some solo material written with David Courtney at Roger Daltrey's studio; the Who's lead singer liked the Sayer/Courtney originals enough to record a handful himself, including the hit "Giving It All Away." Sayer's debut single, "Why Is Everybody Going Home," failed to have an impact, yet 1973's "The Show Must Go On" hit number one in the U.K.; a cover by Three Dog Night stopped Sayer's version from charting in the U.S. The following year he released his first album, Silver Bird, followed quickly by Just a Boy, which included two more British hit singles, "One Man Band" and "Long Tall Glasses (I Can Dance)"; "Long Tall Glasses" managed to break Sayer into the American Top Ten in early 1975. Sayer's working relationship with Courtney was severed during the recording of his third album, Another Year (1975). In 1976, he released Endless Flight, which was co-written with former Supertramp member Frank Farrell; featuring the number one singles "You Make Me Feel like Dancing" and "When I Need You," the record became his biggest hit in both the U.S. and the U.K., selling over a million copies in America. Following Endless Flight, Sayer became a fixture in the American Top 40, yet his hits began to dry up in England.

Jackie Wilson - Discography - 320Kbps.

Jackie Wilson - Discography

Born: June 9, 1934  - Died: January 21, 1984
Jackie Wilson was one of the most important agents of black pop's transition from R&B into soul. In terms of vocal power (especially in the upper register), few could outdo him; he was also an electrifying on-stage showman. He was a consistent hitmaker from the mid-'50s through the early '70s, although never a crossover superstar. His reputation isn't quite on par with Ray Charles, James Brown, or Sam Cooke, however, because his records did not always reflect his artistic genius. Indeed, there is a consensus of sorts among critics that Wilson was something of an underachiever in the studio, due to the sometimes inappropriately pop-based material and arrangements that he used.

Wilson was well-known on the R&B scene before he went solo in the late '50s. In 1953 he replaced Clyde McPhatter in Billy Ward & the Dominoes, one of the top R&B vocal groups of the '50s. Although McPhatter was himself a big star, Wilson was as good as or better than the man whose shoes he filled. Commercially, however, things took a downturn for the Dominoes in the Wilson years, although they did manage a Top 20 hit with "St. Therese of the Roses" in 1956. Elvis Presley was one of those who was mightily impressed by Wilson in the mid-'50s; he can be heard praising Jackie's on-stage cover of "Don't Be Cruel" in between-song banter during the Million Dollar Quartet session in late 1956.

Loretta Lynn - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate [Updated 12 May 2022]

 Loretta Lynn - Discography

Few performers in country music have proved as influential and iconic as Loretta Lynn. At a time when women usually took a back seat to men in Nashville, Lynn was a voice of strength, independence, and sometimes defiance, writing and singing songs that spoke to the concerns of working-class women with unapologetic honesty. She could sing of her hardscrabble childhood ("Coal Miner's Daughter"), deal with the realities of relationships ("Fist City," "You Ain't Woman Enough"), deliver proto-feminist anthems ("The Pill"), and explore mature romance (her series of duets with Conway Twitty) and sound perfectly authentic at every turn. Lynn's voice, strong but naturalistic and matched to tough, lively honky tonk arrangements, reinforced the home truths of her songs, and her success blazed trails for other female country artists. As a member of the Grand Ol' Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, she's been honored by the country music establishment while still doing things her own way. She was a frequent presence on the country charts from 1960 to 1981, and even as tastes changed and her record sales faded, she continued to be a potent live attraction and a major influence on other artists. And at the age of 72, Lynn was discovered by a new generation of music fans when alternative rock star Jack White, a longtime fan, produced her 2004 album, Van Lear Rose. It wasn't Lynn's last hurrah, however. A few years later, she entered the studio with daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash to record hundreds of songs that would come out as a series of albums in the 2010s and beyond, starting with 2016's Full Circle.

Motherlode - Discography - 320kbps

Motherlode - Discography

Canadian pop rock group formed in 1969 in London, Ontario with the original lineup of William Smith, Steve Kennedy, Kenny Marco and Wayne Stone and signed with Revolver (2). After the massive success of their their first single in 1969, "When I Die", Buddah signed them for US and international distribution. They split up in January 1970 before the release of the second album, which was the last release with the original lineup. Revolver owned the name Motherlode so the label made 3 more lineup changes before the final 1971 single "All That's Necessary" flopped and the band name was laid to rest.

The Vernons Girls - Discography

You won't find the Vernons Girls listed in most girl group registers, mostly because they were British, and weren't so much a group as a corporate-sponsored entity that happened to do girl group-type songs later in their history and chart a few records in the process. But the Vernons Girls are worthy of mention due to their longevity across nearly a decade of the most extraordinary changes in British popular music, coupled with their eventual embrace of girl group sounds. Their origins go back well before the advent of rock & roll, to early-'50s England, which was then very much an economic backwater -- it's easy to forget today that rationing, as a consequence of the Second World War and its aftermath, didn't come to an end in England until 1953, eight years after the end of the war and, ironically, well after it had ended in Germany and Japan. In this stunted business environment, entrepreneurs were always scrambling for angles that would give them an edge, and the Vernons Football Pools reasoned that the company could get press and publicity exposure by organizing a girls choir to perform in various venues, prominently displaying the Vernons name. It wasn't a terribly good idea, but it did find traction in the mid-'50s as British popular entertainment slowly made room for a budding youth culture, oriented toward skiffle music and young vocalists (including Cleo Laine and Petula Clark). With the advent of The 6.5 Special and Oh Boy! on British television in 1956 and 1958, respectively -- both television variety shows aimed at a youth audience, with the latter focused on rock & roll -- the Vernons Girls, now more of a group than a choir, became regular backup singers. And out of that engagement, they even got a contract from EMI's Parlophone label.

The Impressions - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

The Impressions

The quintessential Chicago soul group, the Impressions' place in R&B history would be secure if they'd done nothing but launch the careers of soul legends Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield. But far more than that, the Impressions recorded some of the most distinctive vocal-group R&B of the '60s under Mayfield's guidance. Their style was marked by airy, feather-light harmonies and Mayfield's influentially sparse guitar work, plus, at times, understated Latin rhythms. If their sound was sweet and lilting, it remained richly soulful thanks to the group's firm grounding in gospel tradition; they popularized the three-part vocal trade-offs common in gospel but rare in R&B at the time, and recorded their fair share of songs with spiritual themes, both subtle and overt. Furthermore, Mayfield's interest in the civil rights movement led to some of the first socially conscious R&B songs ever recorded, and his messages grew more explicit as the '60s wore on, culminating in the streak of brilliance that was his early-'70s solo work. The Impressions carried on without Mayfield, but only matched their earlier achievements in isolated instances, and finally disbanded in the early '80s.
