Most listeners will remember Chris de Burgh for his international smash hit "The Lady in Red," the theme song to the movie of the same name (and eventually used in an ad campaign for Weight Watchers). However, what most don't realize is that de Burgh enjoyed international recording success both prior and after that big hit. This 20th Century Masters edition covers his lengthy tenure at A&M Records and is a wonderful introduction covering most of his important work. While not as thorough as some greatest-hits compilations available, this is an economically sensible and thorough introduction to the man who quietly had a place on the charts with his unique and extremely smooth vocal stylings.

Joni Mitchell : the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, “Blue” hasn't aged a day since its release in June 1971. But why are today’s artists still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter ?

1984-1987: George Michael’s Transformation

In the mid-1980s—at the height of his fame with Wham!—George Michael decided to embark on a solo career. Following the release of huge hits like “Faith” and “Freedom! ‘90”, he would soon shoot into international superstardom. The boyish charm he possessed in the early days of his music career eventually began to take on a much more mature, masculine edge, setting him on a trajectory to become a revolutionary global icon.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
