HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER

THE LEFT BANKE
“Based in New York, The Left Banke  pioneered “baroque & roll” in the ’60s with a mix of pop/rock and grand, quasi-classical arrangements and melodies. Featuring teenage prodigy Michael Brown as keyboardist and chief songwriter, the group scored two quick hits with “Walk Away Renee” (number five) and “Pretty Ballerina” (number 15). Chamber-like string arrangements, the soaring, near-falsetto lead vocals of Steve Martin,  and tight harmonies that borrowed from British Invasion bands like The Beatles and The Zombies were also key elements of their sound. Though their two hits are their only well-remembered efforts, their debut album  “Walk Away Renée / Pretty Ballerina) was a strong, near-classic work that matched the quality of their hit singles in song-writing and production (…) .

BOB DYLAN Nashville Skyline
While pop evolves into rock, guitars get heavier and drum solos are obligaroy, Bob Dylan goes the opposite way, joining forces with Johnny Cash. In fact,  he returns to his very source.
“Most obviously, Nashville Skyline continues Dylan’s rediscovered romance with rural music (here complete with a more suitable, subtle “country” voice). The new LP represents a natural progression, both historically and emotionally, from the folk-music landscapes of John Wesley Harding into the more modern country-and-western worlds of Hank Williams, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, The Everly Bros and Jerry Lee Lewis”.  Source / All Rights Reserved  https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-album-reviews/nashville-skyline-250427/
