Super Hits Volume 5 (LP, Album).
Greatest Hits, Volume II is the second greatest hits album by the American rock band Chicago, and its fifteenth album overall, released in 1981. Following the poor reception of 1980's Chicago XIV, Columbia Records dropped Chicago from its roster and cancelled a lucrative contract that had recently been signed. While the band had begun its association with David Foster and was in the process of building a new identity, Columbia had contractual obligations for a new release.
Hits 8 is a 33-track compilation album released in the summer of 1988 by CBS, WEA and BMG Records in the UK. It was released as a double LP, MC and CD. Also known as The Hits Album 8, the compilation was successful and reached in the UK Albums Chart (held off by its rival album Now 12) and achieved a Platinum BPI award
King's Road or Kings Road (or sometimes the King's Road, especially when it was the King's private road until 1830, or as a colloquialism by middle/upper class London residents), is a major street stretching through Chelsea and Fulham, both in west London. It is associated with 1960s style and with fashion figures such as Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood. Sir Oswald Mosley's Blackshirt movement had a barracks on the street in the 1930s.
King’s first album for the Stax label combines his hard, unflashy guitar playing with the sleek sound of the label’s house band, Booker T. and the MG’s. Hits such as Crosscut Saw and Laundromat Blues earned King a new rock & roll audience. Merle Haggard, ‘Down Every Road’. Haggard’s tough country sound was born in Bakersfield, California, .
SUPER HITS VOL. 2 contains a fine cross-section of his work in the '70s and '80s for the Epic label. These songs were produced by Billy Sherrill, who had a tendency to over-produce. Yet Jones' voice cuts through any syrupy orchestrations and vocal choruses right to the heart.
Title: King's Road (2010).
