Brothers in Arms was the first album to sell one million copies in the CD format and to outsell its LP version. A Rykodisc employee subsequently wrote, "[In we] were fighting to get our CDs manufactured because the entire worldwide manufacturing capacity was overwhelmed by demand for a single rock title Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms. It was remastered and reissued with the rest of the Dire Straits catalogue in for most of the world outside the United States and on 19 September in the United States, the remastering for both reissues was done by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering using the Super Bit Mapping process.
Ainlay's 5. Britton, it includes the original stereo mix only. On May 19Vertigo reissued the album on double g vinyl, this edition contains the full-length songs of the album, it was mastered by Bob Ludwig, Bernie Grundman and Chris Bellman from the original analogue and digital tapes, this version was also included on The Studio Albums - the previous year.
The release was a double-LP, 45 rpm, gram edition, with the complete version of the album, for only the second time the first being issued by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab in The album has spent a total of weeks on the UK Album Charts. Initial reviews of Brothers in Arms from the UK music press in were generally negative. In a scathing review for NMEMat Snow criticised Knopfler's "mawkish self-pity, his Tell Me Why (Extended Mix) - Debby (4) - Tell Me Why (Vinyl) mannered appropriation of rockin' Americanahis thumpingly crass attempts at wit".
He also accused the album of the "tritest would-be melodies in history, the last word in tranquilising chord changes, the most cloying lonesome playing and ultimate in transparently fake troubador sentiment ever to ooze out of a million-dollar recording studio". Laid back melodies. Dire Straits — summed up The reviews from other UK music papers were less harsh, with Jack Barron of Sounds feeling that "it's only a halfway decent album because it has only halfway decent songs Knopfler has distilled his sonic essence, via blues, to appeal to billboard romantics with cinemascope insecurities.
And he can pull it off well Instead it sounds just a bit too like the last Dire Straits album, which sounded not unlike the last one before that, which sounded suspiciously like the beginning of a hugely successful and very lucrative plan to take over the world known as AOR ". He concluded, "the old rockschool restraints and the undeniably attractive smell of the winning formula seem to block out any such experimental work and what you end up with is something very like the same old story.
US reviews were more positive. Writing for Spin magazine, E. Brooks praised Knopfler's guitar work and noted that "when the intensity of his words approaches that of his ravishing stratocaster licks, the song soars. That doesn't happen as often as I'd like on this new album [ Take that and the quality of the musicianship, and you've got a lot.
Although she found the lyrics literate, Bull noted that the scenarios "aren't as interesting as they used to be on records like Making Movies ".
Despite the production values and notable contributions from guest artists like drummer Omar Hakim and the Brecker BrothersBull concluded that "the music lacks the ache that made Knopfler's recent soundtracks for Comfort and Joy and Cal so powerful.
Later reviews have praised the record. Reviewing the remastered Dire Straits albums inRob Beattie of Q awarded Brothers in Arms five stars out of five and wrote that "repeated listening reveals it as a singularly melancholic collection — see the guitar slashing of 'The Man's Too Strong' and the title track, where joy is as sharp as sorrow".
According to Erlewine, Dire Straits had "never been so concise or pop-oriented, and it wore well on them". Erlewine concluded that the album remains "one of their most focused and accomplished albums, and in its succinct pop sense, it's distinctive within their catalog". Inwhen Brothers in Arms was among ten albums nominated for the best British album of the past 30 years by the Brit Awardsmusic broadcaster and author Paul Gambaccini described the list of nominees as "risible" but added, " Brothers in Arms runs away with it for the quality of songwriting and musicianship.
In November the results of a national poll conducted by the public of Australia revealed their top favourite albums. Brothers in Arms came in at number 64 see " My Favourite Album ". Brothers in Arms is ranked number three in the best albums of and number 31 in the best albums of the s.
British music journalist Robert Sandall wrote:. Up till the summer of success had, for them, come as a by-product of the music making process. They had never courted celebrity, chased fads, or played safe. Dire Straits had been loved and respected as one of the few bands to have maintained strong and credible links with the multifarious roots of rock and roll at a time—remember all the desperate pop posing of the early 80s?
All songs were written by Mark Knopfler, except where indicated. The CD and cassette versions feature extended versions of four songs. Because of this, the Side Two of the cassette version has about 10 minutes of blank tape.
The Double LP edition uses extended versions of four songs originally featured on CD and cassette editions. Credits adapted from album liner notes.

Long before bedroom recording became an aesthetic choice, R. Stevie Moore built a legend of pop experimentalism, home recording, and mystic curmudgeonry. Equal parts songwriter, improviser, composer, producer, filmmaker, artist, and comedy writer, the self-taught Tennessean polymath has released hundreds of homemade albums since the '60s--and inspired a thousand times more.
Rather than pose and slither in the music biz, Moore opted for a more genuine life and a spot on the staff at legendary indie radio station WFMU, sharing Bedroom Radio with the world. His independent streak extends to his record releases, the R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club successful and long-lasting enough that it became the R.
By refusing to settle into any one genre or style, Moore has always dedicated himself to eccentric ideas and passions whether around the world or focused into his home.
And as Moore now eases into a well-deserved retirement, ON EARTH stands as a powerful statement, an intimate companion, and a goofy guide through a storied career. Ranging all the way back to 's classic Phonography, the double-disc retrospective collects a full suite of dazzling power pop, psychedelia, and indie rock, and opens the gateway to the ultimate cult DIY hero.
Stevie Moore. Stevie Moore in Stevie Moore has recorded nearly 2, songs on over very original homemade double albums of alarmingly idiosyncratic variety and styles, often considered a seminal pioneer in the DIY ethic Made his first home recording in A New York Times article referenced Moore as the progenitor of "bedroom pop" XTC founder Andy Partridge said of Moore's work: "What beauty, what invention.
Much of his musical and lyrical content is characterised by a quirky cynicism. He also has a highly sophisticated sense of melody, again without following formulas. Some of those tracks are featured on this release. This is the first official vinyl reissue of the score since its original release in on the Cerberus label.

This project brings together the sophisticated songcraft of singer-songwriter Johnny O'Donnell, the iconoclastic arrangements of Van Dyke Parks, and the genial production touch of Lewis Pesacov into a refreshing and rewarding musical package that deserves the focus that only a 45RPM single provides.
Built upon a relationship formed in Los Angeles over a nearly twenty year period, the songs, penned by O'Donnell, are explorations in harmony, straddling the line between familiar and freakish. The arrangements and production are cinematic and full of drama which befits a production born of the belly of Hollywood.
Romance, intrigue, and a touch of the unreal is where the tripartite of musical craftsmen have brewed this potion of melodies. The two unreleased songs will be available for the first time as a 7" single, exclusively as part of RSD Drops.

Now, over 8 years later, we built a career out of it. During this pandemic, I have gotten awfully nostalgic. For a time, we would travel constantly and shows started blending together. That endorphin rush was taken for granted. The first moment we had to play a socially distanced show, I knew exactly what we should do. Play a show at Avondale Brewery and do our debut album in full.
Something I would never had done if the pandemic had not happened. The beauty though of looking back at the beginning was realizing all the great people that helped us turn a summer fling into an actual career. It was such a beautiful time. Here is the live recording from that show that night. New inch EP is the latest release on Records Store Daya collection of his new songs recorded during the pandemic, available on vinyl.

They Make Me Made Carry Go Bring Come On My Radio While using these charts worked well for the first half of the s, as music changed during the decade and disco became popular on the charts, some rock stations began to drop the show because of complaints from program directors that AT40 was playing too many songs not normally heard on their stations.
This gradually became a wide schism as rock splintered into several formats in the early s. As a result, AT40's weekly playlist could be very diverse in the styles and formats of the songs played. Stations tended to specialize in only one or two of these formats and completely ignore the others. One solution for the AT40 producers was to air frequent specials at least three or four times a year that concentrated on the classic music of the past, such as Rock in the Movies and Top Hits of the Seventies.
But as Top 40 stations evolved into CHRthey began to avoid syndicated shows like AT40, preferring to stick with their own special niche formats. These songs would generally only be aired in brief snippets during the show. These songs generally scored much higher radio airplay, and some were not even released as singles such as "Steel Bars" by Michael Bolton.
During this time, a few songs made very high debuts, including two that almost debuted in the 1 spot: "I'll Be There" by Mariah Careywhich entered at 4, and "Erotica" by Madonnawhich entered at 2. This chart had more mainstream hits but fewer urban, dance and rap songs. AT40 did not always use the official year-end Billboard chart during the 25 years in which the show used Billboard charts.
Inandas well as and —, AT40 compiled its own year-end chart. These charts were often close to Billboard's, but AT40 would use a mid-December to early-December time period while Billboard's survey year varied from year to year.
AT40 matched Billboard's 1 year-end song every year except, and This chart used a recurrent rule that removed songs below 25 that had exceeded 26 weeks in the top 50; these removals, if they occurred in the top 40, would be reflected on the appropriate week's program.
Inthe rule was modified to further restrict long chart runs: songs falling below 20 with at least 20 weeks in the top 50 would now be removed. On October 21,American Top 40 began using an unpublished chart on a weekly basis for the first time in its history. The most noticeable feature of this new chart was its ambiguous recurrent Tell Me Why (Extended Mix) - Debby (4) - Tell Me Why (Vinyl).
Songs would be removed regularly from within the top 15, seemingly regardless of the number of weeks they had spent on the chart. The return coincided with another modification in the recurrent rule; songs would be removed below 25 after three consecutive weeks without a bullet an increase in radio plays. Both of these shows would find a home with him at his new syndicator and Tell Me Why (Extended Mix) - Debby (4) - Tell Me Why (Vinyl) rebranded once he joined.
He would concurrently host both shows with AT40 until he handed the show over to Ryan Seacrest in Januarythen continue as host of the AC countdowns until he retired in From toa video version of the show entitled America's Top 10 was aired in syndication to television stations across the United States. Kasem hosted this version from to When Kasem left American Top 40 inhe remained as host of America's Top 10 until the end ofwhen he would be replaced by Siedah Garrett and later Tommy Puett.
Kasem returned byand the show ran until After Kasem left ABC, the network launched American Golda spinoff oldies countdown featuring far fewer songs, and often focusing on a particular artist hosted by Dick Bartley. The American Top 40 format was adapted in an Australian show titled Take 40 Australiasimilarly counting down the top 40 songs in the country.
Casey Kasem and Watermark's policy regarding putting American Top 40 together was to always play the forty most popular songs in the United States and never to ban a record from the countdown.
However, whenever songs with potentially offensive lyrical content made the top 40, Watermark would send out memos to affiliated stations alerting them of the presence of that song in the countdown and sometimes provide stations with suggestions on how to edit the song out of their AT40 broadcasts. When the show became part of Premiere Networks sincea few stations airing AT40 especially in most countries around the world were opted to either change versions of each songs or skipped some portions of the show due to various reasons.
Calley ", by Terry Nelson and C-Company. Perhaps the most infamous of these songs was Chuck Berry 's number-one hit " My Ding-a-Ling ", which put some stations in the odd position of having to air AT40 without playing the number one song; at least one station, KELI in Tulsa, Oklahomacensored out the song at its 1 position, replacing it with a message from station management, explaining why they chose to censor the program.
In the summer ofradio station KRNQ in Des Moines, Iowaedited out " The Killing of Georgie " by Rod Stewart, because of the subject matter of a homosexual being murdered; that song peaked at 30 on the countdown. Inwhen Billy Joel's " Only the Good Die Young " wherein Joel urged pre-marital sex by a teen Catholic girl, Virginia was on the charts, AT40 had placed warnings in shipments to warn affiliates in highly Catholic populated areas along with a special break in the countdown for stations to substitute another song in its place.
The affiliates usually used the suggestion, though some did not and no major complaints were ever heard. In situations where a charting song contained offensive language and the record company was unable to provide AT40 with a clean edit of the song, the producers would often make an edit themselves. The offensive lyric in the song was, "He wouldn't take shit from no one.
However, this was not before AT40 erroneously played the uncensored version with the lyric " Songs with offensive words in their titles were often censored for radio airplay, and is reflected in their inclusion on AT The songs peaked at 25 and 21 respectively. That same year, the show also used a slightly suggestive version of soulDecision 's " Faded " which peaked at 6despite a more radio-friendly version of the song being available.
InThe Chainsmokers 's " Roses " feat. However, on some versions of the show, the lyric was not censored. InJason Derulo 's " Swalla " feat. InN. D and Rihanna 's " Lemon " was significantly edited. An alternate version of the song was played, which had the final two verses of the song played on loop.
This is presumably to remove the first two verses, in which the lyrics included highly charged political issues such as immigrationracism and anti- Donald Trump sentiments. Inthe chorus of Fletcher 's " Undrunk " was edited due to lyrics about masturbation. InTaylor Swift 's song " Cardigan " was edited due to drinking references in its lyrics, replacing the word "bars" with "cars", the same thing happened in with the Jonas Brothers ' song " Sucker ". Although Kasem never banned a song from the countdown, there was at least one instance in which both Kasem and his guest host, Charlie Van Dyke, refused to announce the title of a song on his show.
Also, as had been done with previous controversial hits, because of the song's suggestiveness, the show's structure was altered slightly, so stations could opt out of the song. This pattern was also evident during the Year End countdown. The song title was mentioned five times during its chart run June 20, ; June 27, ; April 7, ; December 9,and September 19,during the week-ending episode of September 26,when it dropped out of the Top 40, and during the Top of show; Shadoe Stevens, his successor, however did mention the title on the show from July 31,as part of the Flashback feature, as it was in the top 5 from that week in Another song that had its title unannounced after its first week was " Me So Horny " by 2 Live Crewin the fall of the Shadoe Stevens era.
It was mentioned twice at the beginning of the song, and back announced once, its debut week. For the rest of its chart run, the title was never again mentioned. The song did come with edit out instructions for stations as well. In" God is a Woman " by Ariana Grande had its title not mentioned and its chorus edited in some airings of the show in some Middle Eastern countries, presumably due to religious beliefs; despite this some radio stations Tell Me Why (Extended Mix) - Debby (4) - Tell Me Why (Vinyl) as Hi FM in Oman play the song in its entirety during normal programming.
Similar omissions occurred in February when both the Gordon Sinclair and Byron MacGregor versions of The Americans simultaneously hit the Top 40; in each case, only one version was played each week alternately. Don McLean 's hit American Piewhich was long, was split into two segments for the single release.
When the song aired on AT40, each part was played alternately, with the entire song played when it reached 1. In earlyJustin Timberlake 's single " Mirrors " had to be edited for time, as the song is over eight minutes long. InHarry Styles ' single " Sign of the Times " was also edited for time.
The original song is over 5 minutes long. When Billie Eilish 's single " Happier Than Ever " charted, the original 4-minute, second version was played as opposed to the radio edit that some affiliates played. On several occasions, the show would play remixed versions of charted songs.
During a portion of its run inAT40 played the Arty remix of Surf Mesa 's " ily ", despite most of its affiliates airing the original version; it was eventually switched to the original version when the song entered the Hot AC chart. InAT40 played the original version of All Time Low 's " Monsters ", despite the remix version with Blackbear and Demi Lovato being serviced to Top 40 radio, while the original version was serviced to Alternative rock stations.
Later that year, AT40 continued to play the original version of The Weeknd 's " Save Your Tears " released indespite some affiliates playing the remixed version with Ariana Grande on Top 40 radio when it was released in April of that year. As has been mentioned previously, many rock radio stations in the late s adopted anti- disco stances, and this, too, was reflected in the way some affiliates edited AT For example, one show featured a story about disco saving New York; Tell Me Why (Extended Mix) - Debby (4) - Tell Me Why (Vinyl), the show was structured so that anti-disco stations could edit the story out of the show.
Notably, Kasem ended the monologue with the prediction that "disco is here to stay," which was proven false in short order, as disco rapidly fell out of fashion by The special Cleveland-only American Top 40 episode did not feature the AT40 Archives, extras, or Long Distance Dedications — just the top 40 singles of that week, which was preceded by a recap of the previous week's top three.
This version was also presented live on the air, unlike AT40, which was produced and recorded several days in advance. Because the station did not have disco songs in the playlist, and the top 40 that week had several disco songs, WGCL had to reach outside its library to find copies of some of the songs, some of which were not the single versions; "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" by Donna Summerthe songs occupying the 3 and 2 spots on the Billboard chart for that week respectively, were conveniently available as a inch medley, which Coleman used for the show.
Kasem himself did not learn about the deception untillaughing the whole thing off by saying, "Maybe I don't want to hear it! Coleman's sleight-of-hand was actually the second time a version of the AT40 had aired that was not quite on the up and up.
When the station's copy of the show did not arrive in time, he used Billboard ' s list and merely played the records, apparently heavily implying that the show was American Top 40 without actually identifying it as such. But while the special was a stark departure from the contemporary sound of the s, Tom Rounds in his press release reminded stations that it was the United States' "one and only bicentennial.
From totwo radio stations still carrying American Top 40 had to carry customized versions of the show. Occasionally American Top 40 airs special countdowns in place of the regular American Top 40 countdown show. These included 1 :. The top songs of the year are counted down near the turning of each year, though the format has varied over the years. During the show's original run, the 2-week Top programs came with special instructions for editing the show into one 8-hour block.
Conversely, the 1-week Top programs came with instructions to split the show into two 4-hour blocks. In andonly the top 40 was counted down due to AT40's Top 40 Christmas Countdowns which aired the week prior. The show did not air Christmas countdowns again until the spinoff shows "American Top 20" and "American Top 10" came into existence, as both of these spinoffs aired a "Top 60 Christmas Songs" special annually the two weeks immediately preceding Christmas.
Sincethe show has aired the same Top 40 year-end chart two weeks in a row, with the only differences being the optional AT40 Extras and re-cut announcements mentioning the Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve which Seacrest also hosts as a past event instead of an upcoming event. An exception to this was in when the year-end chart was aired only on the weekend before Christmas, due to the decade-end chart airing the following weekend, with the normal chart resuming the first weekend of January.
In, andthe show aired special countdowns of the decade's biggest hits.
