Once Upon a Time in the Top Spot: Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms

31 years ago today, Dire Straits ascended to the pinnacle of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart with a whole lot of help from a song extolling the virtues of rock stardom, specifically the ability to “get your money for nothing and your chicks for free.”

Happy Anniversary: Robyn Hitchcock, MOSS ELIXIR

20 years ago this week, Robyn Hitchcock returned from something resembling self-imposed retirement and unleashed his debut album for Warner Brothers.

After concluding his contract with A&M Records with the release of his 1993 album, RESPECT, Hitchcock laid low for a bit, ostensibly because of the death of his father, and when he resurfaced a few years later, he was signed to Warner Brothers and sans his longtime backing group, The Egyptians.

Happy Anniversary: Jethro Tull, A

36 years ago today, Jethro Tull released their 13th album, but if things had gone in the manner in which they’d been originally planned, then the material contained therein would’ve instead seen release as Ian Anderson’s solo debut.

Out Now: The Monkees, 50 / MONKEES FOREVER
For all the press that The Monkees’ GOOD TIMES! album has been getting, the fact that the band has a very successful new LP shouldn’t overshadow the fact that this year marks the 50th anniversary of Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork first joining forces as recording artists and, yes, TV stars, too. To celebrate this fact as well as to help educate the youngsters whose first encounter with The Monkees is the GOOD TIMES! album, we’ve put together two best-of compilations tied to the guys hitting the big 5-0.
