Songs I Love To Sing is the 1960 album by singer Brook Benton. The album was one of three he released in 1960, all released on Mercury. The CD was released by the Verve Music Group on 23 September, 2003.

Songs I Love To Sing by Brook Benton is a gorgeous array of 12 standards as interpreted by Benton and his collaborator, Clyde Otis. He does not sound like the Benton of his last hit, "Rainy Night in Georgia"; rather, the singer goes to the place where Nat King Cole reigned supreme. He sounds unbelievably like Cole on some of these tunes, the phrasing and vocal texture so similar it is amazing, perfectly surrounded by superb orchestration. The Rube Bloom/Johnny Mercer classic that charted for Glenn Miller two decades before this rendition, "Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear to Tread)," went Top 25 in 1960 from Songs I Love To Sing and is indicative of the lush sounds found on this wonderful disc. Great singers from every era always have the urge to emulate their idols; Rod Stewart sprinkled his favorite songs over various albums, culminating in his 2002 concept disc It Had to Be You…The Great American Songbook. Like Stewart, Brook Benton was a singer/songwriter, though he was in a genre where the Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis types let others write the tunes they would bring to life. In this setting, Benton hits a home run; these recordings are a stunning display of his vocal prowess and understanding of the material. "September Song" should have been licensed for one of the Kurt Weill tribute albums, a decidedly different version than what Lou Reed uncovered for the Lost in the Stars: The Music of Kurt Weill '80s compilation. The uncredited and worthwhile liner notes on an LP jacket which has the singer leaning on a large gold harp give some insight; Benton got the idea for this collection while convalescing in the hospital. Clyde Otis supervised the sessions and the orchestration, and it is all very beautiful, from the Gershwins' "They Can't Take That Away From Me" to Peggy Lee's "I Don't Know Enough About You." The album concludes with the hit "Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear to Tread)," which Rick Nelson brought to the Top 15 three years after this, though there's no comparison whatsoever – Benton's rendition is classic, as is this very special record.

Genre: hard rock, pop rock, classic rock

Fire Of Unknown Origin is the 1981 album by Blue Öyster Cult. This features the massive hit "Burnin' For You", plus "Veteran Of The Psychic Wars", "Heavy Metal: The Black And Silver" and "Joan Crawford." This is the second CD pressing, with the "triangle in circle" below the "Compact Disc Digital Audio" logo on the right side of the disc.
Who would have thought that in 1981, after a pair of limp, unfocused studio offerings, and two mixed – at best – live outings, that the once mighty Blue Öyster Cult would come back with such a fierce, creative, and uncompromising effort as Fire of Unknown Origin. Here was their finest moment since Agents of Fortune five years earlier, and one of their finest ever. Bringing back into the fold the faithful team who helped articulate their earlier vision, producer Sandy Pearlman, Richard Meltzer, and Patti Smith all helped in the lyric department, as did science fiction and dark fantasy writer Michael Moorcock. The band's sound was augmented by a plethora of keyboards courtesy of Allen Lanier, but nonetheless retained a modicum of its heaviness, and the sheer songwriting craft that had helped separate the band form its peers early on was everywhere evident here – especially the gloriously noir-ish Top 40 single "Burning for You," written by Meltzer and guitarist Buck Dharma. Other standouts on the set include the plodding, über-riff pyrotechnics of "Heavy Metal: The Black and the Silver," and the Mott the Hoople- and Queen-influenced glammed up roots rock of "Joan Crawford." The terrifying images of desecration and apocalyptic war in "Veteran of Psychic Wars," with words by Moorcock, feature huge synth lines, dual leads by Dharma and Eric Bloom – as well as a tom-tom orgy from Albert Bouchard – offered a new pathway through the eternal night of the Cult's best work.

Extraterrestrial Live is the 1982 live album by Blue Öyster Cult. It was recorded throughout the Fire Of Unknown Origin and features then-new songs ("Burnin' For You", "Joan Crawford", "Veteran Of The Psychic Wars") plus valued chestnuts ("Godzilla", "(Don't Fear) The Reaper"), and a guest appearance from The Doors' Robbie Krieger in a cover of "Roadhouse Blues."

Of Blue Öyster Cult's three live albums, Extraterrestrial Live is the one to own. The two-record set, partially recorded on BÖC's home base of Long Island, contains the band's biggest hits, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" (making its second live appearance) and "Burnin' for You," as well as longtime concert favorites like "Cities on Flame," "The Red and the Black," and "Godzilla." But it isn't just the superior song selection that gives this album the nod over On Your Feet or on Your Knees and Some Enchanted Evening; BÖC had regained its momentum in 1981 with Fire of Unknown Origin, and this album demonstrated their renewed spirit in the forum in which they were most comfortable – live work.
