"Special thanks to Robert Palmer for his help in compiling this collection," reads a sleeve note on this Dutch compilation, and while you can understand Disky's desire to acknowledge the artist's own involvement in the set, you also can't help thinking that it's a way of shifting responsibility for the choices. The Essential Selection consists of recordings Palmer made for EMI Records between 1988 and 1996, including his work with the Power Station. Drawing from his albums Nova, Don't Explain, and Honey, from the Power Station album Living in Fear, and from one-off singles, it features some of his hits from the period, notably "Simply Irresistible," which made the U.S. Top Five, and "She Makes My Day" and "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" (recorded with UB40), which made the U.K. Top Ten. But this is not a hits collection; it ignores other successful singles in both England and America in favor of album tracks from albums that were not commercially successful, such as Honey, which spent only four weeks in the U.K. charts and did not chart in the U.S. at all, and the marginally selling Living in Fear. With this selection, Palmer seems to be arguing that his EMI work was misunderstood and inadequately appreciated, which may be true at least in part. Certainly, there are many other hard rock tracks in the style of "Simply Irresistible" that could have been just as big. Potential buyers can read the contents on the back of the album or on a website before purchasing it, so they are unlikely to be fooled into thinking this is more of a greatest-hits set than it is. But nobody should buy this album expecting a full-scale look at Palmer's recording career or even the popular highlights of his late-'80s and '90s work.

Know your Lemmy

El 24 de diciembre de 2017 Lemmy Kilmister habría cumplido 72 años, 40 de ellos al frente de Motörhead, el grupo de rock & roll más ruidoso de la historia. Un cáncer fulminante se llevó a este icono que muchos tenían por incombustible, puesto que su muerte había sido anunciada más de una vez para ser desmentida poco después. La trayectoria de Motörhead, que lógicamente termina con él, se ha extendido a lo largo de cuatro décadas, con sus inevitables altibajos. Y ha dado pie a numerosos malentendidos, sin que nada afectara lo más mínimo al huracán sonoro desencadenado desde encima de los escenarios...

El boom del blues británico, crónica de una revolución

Si Joe Bonamassa regresó con British Blues Explosion, un año después del Blue And Lonesome de los Rolling Stones fue porque el boom del blues británico resultó algo más que una simple tendencia… Más que una simple tendencia musical, el interés de una joven generación por los grandes iconos americanos del blues ignorados en su tierra, generó una auténtica revolución dirigida por tres principales agitadores, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck y Jimmy Page, considerados más allá del Canal de la Mancha nada menos que como la «Santísima Trinidad» de la historia del rock o de la guitarra. Aunque no fueron los únicos músicos involucrados, fue a través de sus respectivas carreras desde las que se descubrió que el blues, lejos de ser una música que había pasado su fecha de caducidad desde hacía mucho tiempo, era como un salto hacia otras dimensiones musicales que permitía múltiples innovaciones.

Jimi Hendrix, el cielo ha terminado de esperar

A pesar de una carrera relámpago, Jimi Hendrix dejó un patrimonio de grabaciones casi infinito. Prueba de ello, la publicación de Both Sides Of The Sky, una nueva compilación inédita de cinco estrellas. Pero, ¿qué esconde este cofre del tesoro?
