JohnSebastianTheFourOfUs

Release Date August 9, 1971. (AllMusic Review by James Chrispell) Following his great solo debut, The Four of Us suffers a bit in comparison, but there’s a lot of great listening to be found here. Side one contains a variety of sounds, from the blues-based “Well, Well, Well” and “Black Snake Blues” to the Lovin’ Spoonful-reminiscent “Apple Hill” and “We’ll See.” Side two is a side-long title track broken down into four separate tunes and styles, the first being folkish, the second Caribbean, the third rock & roll, and the fourth country-rock, all tied together with a very pleasant, lilting refrain. http://www.allmusic.com/album/the-four-of-us-mw0000743462

TheBeatlesRocknRollMusic

Rock ‘n’ Roll Music is a compilation album by The Beatles that consists of previously released Beatles tracks. The double album was issued on 7 June 1976 in the United States, on Capitol Records (catalogue number SKBO 11537), and on Parlophone (PCSP 719) in the United Kingdom, four days later; at the time, some in the media speculated that the album was released to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first meeting between John Lennon and Paul McCartney. (If that was indeed the intention, EMI miscalculated, as the two actually first met in July 1957.) The title, Rock ‘n’ Roll Music, presumably came from the song of the same name by Chuck Berry, The Beatles’ version of which is included on side two of the original two-record set. The album is primarily made up of cover versions of songs written by significant rock and roll composers of the ’50s, including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins and Larry Williams, although some notable Lennon–McCartney originals, such as “Drive My Car”, “Revolution”, “Back in the U.S.S.R.” and “Get Back” are included also. Rock ‘n’ Roll Music was the first Beatles album to include “I’m Down”, which had previously only been available as the B-side of the “Help!” single.
