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.

Oh, sure, you know they wanna rock, and they’ve made it quite clear that they’re not gonna take it, but beyond that, just how much do you really know about these characters who call themselves Twisted Sister? Well, for those of you who have an interest in looking beyond the band’s two biggest hits and a desire to begin exploring their back catalog, we’ve got a perfect gateway drug for you: TWISTED SISTER: BEST OF THE ATLANTIC YEARS.

Six-Pack: Jeff Tweedy
We’ve had a lot of birthdays within the Rhino catalog lately, and we’ve been having a lot of fun using those occasions to spotlight some of the guest appearances that the birthday boys and/or girls have done at various points during their careers, but having chosen the name “Six-Pack” as the catch-all name for these pieces is starting to feel like alcoholics, because it seems like we’re knocking out a six-pack every day!

Rhino Factoids
43 years ago today, Bobby Darin took his final bow on the concert stage, and even though he wasn’t aware at the time that he’d never do another show, it’s evident from the reminiscences of those who knew and worked with him that he suspected he was in the home stretch of both his career and his life.
