Holiday Break

There will be no posts for a couple of days I'm afraid. We are off on our Annual Christmas visit to Family. A little early perhaps but Michael isn't allowed to take time off from work in December.

We will return with new posts on Tuesday 1st December 2009, as we count down to Christmas.

Best Wishes and Happy Thanks giving to our American Friends,

Mark

Debbie Allen's Top Ten Albums!

The follow article comes from Sunday Express from 25tth October 2009 where Debbie picks her favourite 6 albums:

DEBBIE Allen, 59, starred as Lydia Grant in the hit Eighties’ TV series Fame. She’s currently directing Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, which opens at the Novello Theatre on December 1

Mariah Carey: Butterfly (Columbia)I think Mariah is one of the songbirds of this millennium and the music on this album is truly inspirational. Whenever I hear it I just want to dance.

Michael Jackson: Thriller (Epic)This was a landmark album and perhaps Jackson’s artistic high watermark. When it came out Jackson defined the world of pop music for me. Every track is a winner. A classic.

Various Artists: West Side Story [Soundtrack] (Sony Classical)This features some of the greatest music ever. I listen to it over and over and never tire of it. A fabulous musical. Try to get the original Broadway cast recording.

Miles Davis: Sketches of Spain [50th Anniversary Edition] (Sony Legacy)I grew up in a household where jazz was revered above all other forms of music. Davis was not only a giant in the jazz world but in this he made an absolutely wonderful album. Every home should have a copy.

Robin Thicke:The Evolutionof Robin Thicke (Indigo)This guy came out of nowhere and his first album is amazing. The song I particularly love is Lost Without U, a massive hit Stateside a couple of years ago. This is contemporary R&B at its best.

Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life (Universal/Island)I got into Stevie’s music at school and have been a fan ever since. As far as I’m concerned he’s the master composer. He’s cut a string of classic records but this is his masterpiece.It’s touched me as a woman.
