Bobby Vee was doing amazingly well in 1967 -- in the midst of the full blooming of psychedelia, he had the biggest-selling single of his career with "Come Back When You Grow Up," which heralded a late-'60s string of charting singles for him, and a burst of album activity. Just Today is easily Vee's most daring album up to this time, opening as it does with his covers of four Motown standards on three tracks -- and no, they're not exactly stunning moments in music history, though the "Medley: My Girl/Hey Girl" did chart as a hit for him, but they're not terrible or embarrassing, either; and Vee, with his producer Dallas Smith and arranger Lincoln Mayorga, shows some serious sensitivity to the music. And the rest of the album is solid pop/rock of its period, with Vee in good form, with more of a beat in songs like "Nobody's Home to Go To" than he had in some of the pure pop he did early in the decade (not that the soft rock arrangement was terribly significant in 1968). Essentially, he was doing exactly the same thing that Neil Diamond, Glen Campbell, and Jimmy Webb and Richard Harris were doing at the time, straddling pop and contemporary rock; other than the quality of Vee's singing, which is consistent throughout, the attribute that makes this album unique is Vee's sincere cover of "Sealed with a Kiss," which is his look back on his own early-'60s past. "Beautiful People" is an upbeat piece of late-'60s pop/rock with a catchy melody, and "Maybe Just Today" and "Sunrise Highway" are nicely contemporary (yet gently nostalgic) pieces by an artist a decade out of his era and still competing for a softer listenership. ~ Bruce Eder

Fleetwood Mac, la période blues

Il y a deux Fleetwood Mac, celui des années 1960 aux couleurs blues porté par l’un des plus grands guitaristes de sa génération, Peter Green, et l’autre, un groupe de pop-rock qui deviendra l’une des formations les plus acclamées de son époque. Leur album de 1977, “Rumours”, reste, quarante ans après, l’une des dix meilleures ventes de tous les temps. Mais la première période du groupe, moins connue, fut tout aussi captivante.

Charles Aznavour : que le spectacle continue

La vie de Charles Aznavour pourrait se résumer aux deux mots « chanson » et « comédie ». Tel un artisan passionné, l’interprète de « Comme ils disent », qui nous a quittés en 2018, à l’âge de 94 ans, a tout donné au spectacle. Tant et si bien qu’il a fait de ce thème l’un des piliers de son œuvre.

La britpop en 10 albums

« Si le but du punk était de se débarrasser des hippies, le nôtre est d’en finir avec le grunge. » Lorsque Damon Albarn assène cette phrase en 1993, l’Angleterre s’apprête à reprendre sa place sur un échiquier musical envahi par Seattle avec le grunge et Nirvana. Profondément liée à la vie politique et l’identité locale, la pop britannique se révèle au moment où Tony Blair et le New Labour entrent en scène. Le romantisme anglais redevient attractif par rapport à l’identité américaine, jugée trop creuse outre-Manche. Place à la « Cool Britannia ».
