Putting together an adequate compilation of the Human League's best moments has proved to be a thankless task. What to include? (How about all of Dare!?) Do you pay attention to the pre-coed version of the band? Do you pay any attention to anything that came after Crash? At any rate, The Very Best Of Virgin retrospective, originally released in the U.K. in 2003 with remastered sound (and a bonus disc of remixes that Americans won't miss), does a respectable job of paying mind to the group's best work through 2001's Secrets (the group's best album since Dare!). All of the expected major hits -- "Don't You Want Me," "Love Action," "(Keep Feeling) Fascination," "Human" -- are provided, as are crucial early moments ("Being Boiled," "Empire State Human") and later singles that history, for the most part, has tried to forget ("One Man in My Heart," "Heart Like a Wheel"). Once again, 1980's Travelogue goes completely ignored; while that album didn't impact the charts all that much -- even in the group's home country -- the atypically abrasive "The Black Hit of Space" or even the non-album single "Marianne" would have made a significant addition.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus

What a difference 50 years can make! By early 1969 rock music had become a leading cultural force: The Who had just recorded Tommy; Cream packed Royal Albert Hall for their farewell concert; Janis Joplin became a solo act; Led Zeppelin performed for the first time. And after four months of recording, The Beatles (aka The White Album) was out and climbing the charts. To understate the obvious, rock music was awash in talent and standards were high.
