Released in conjunction with Billy Joel's grand experiment with classical music, The Essential Billy Joel was a welcome reminder of Billy Joel's way with a pop song, improving on the previous Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 & 2 by extending into the '90s and delving deeper into his catalog. There were some casualties along the way -- it's easy for a fan to carp about the absence of personal favorites like "She's Right on Time" or "Travelin' Prayer," and it may even make some sense that "You're Only Human (Second Wind)" or "Shameless" didn't make the cut, but it's mind-boggling that "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant" isn't here (we won't mention that the classical pieces that end the record, no matter how surprisingly good they are, are as out of place as Attila would have been) -- but for the most part, this has every one of Joel's heavy-hitters, and his craftsmanship, both as a songsmith and record maker, has never shone brighter. The biggest fault is that there is a notable drop-off in quality after 1986's The Bridge (which ends midway through disc two), but even so, this is as good a distillation of Joel's talents imaginable. In fact, as the first disc unfurls, even cynics may wonder why he's been dogged by the critics, since singer/songwriter pop doesn't come better than "Say Goodbye to Hollywood," "New York State of Mind," "Only the Good Die Young," "My Life," "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," "Don't Ask Me Why," "Allentown," and their seven companions. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Betty Davis, die Funk-Furie

Ohne sie würde es weder Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse noch Janelle Monáe geben! Betty Davis ist zwar seit Jahren von der Bildfläche verschwunden, aber sie gilt noch immer als Pionierin unter den unkonventionellen Soul Sisters. Als Funk-Göttin schlechthin. Sie war es auch, die Miles Davis’ Energie als seine vorübergehende Ehefrau freisetzte. Betty, wer bist du eigentlich?

Elvis, immer noch der King?

42 Jahre nach seinem Tod ist Elvis Presley immer noch ein unübertroffener Wegbereiter. Auch wenn seine unentbehrlichen Aufnahme-Sessions von 1954/1955 beim Label Sun ein Eckpfeiler des Rock’n’Roll bedeuten, scheint die Aura des King bei den jüngeren Generationen im Hinblick auf den Einfluss der Beatles, der Stones oder den Beachboys zu verblassen. Und dennoch...

Woodstock feiert Geburtstag

Woodstock war zwar nicht das einzige Festival, das sich der Musik der damaligen Zeit widmete. Newport galt 1969 schon als ein regelmäßiger Treffpunkt für Fans der neuen Rock- und Folkmusik-Szene, die die amerikanische Jugend - und vor allem die jungen Menschen auf der ganzen Welt - begeisterte.
