The Tourists - Reality Effect 1979 (Bonus Tracks)

All The Songs From The UK & The USEditions Of  The Tourist's 2nd Album Reality Effect Enjoy...............

This album received much more favourable reviews than the band's first album, with catchier songs and a stronger reliance on the vocals of singer Annie Lennox. The album contained two hit singles, "So Good to Be Back Home Again" (UK #8) and a cover of the 1964 Dusty Springfield song I Only Wanna Be With You (UK #4).

Neil Sedaka - The Brooklyn Demos 1958 - 1961.....

From The Late 50's Into the Early 60's Here Is Neil Sedaka And His Brooklyn Demo's.........Enjoy..............

AllMusic Review by Steve Leggett :
A fine rhythmic pianist with a thin, high voice that he strengthened by multi-tracking, Neil Sedaka turned his Brill Building pop smarts and doo wop influences into a long and successful career. These home demos find him at the very start of that process, and his melodic gifts and goofy charm are already in evidence. Working on songs written by his brother-in-law Eddie Grossman, Sedaka brings a loose, joyful enthusiasm to the proceedings, and while there isn't a "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" buried in these 34 tracks, the spare, energetic arrangements make these pieces far from throwaways. Sedaka fans will treasure this collection, and when combined with RCA's Sings the Hits, casual listeners will get an intimate and comprehensive view of this likable performer.
