Carole King: The Essential Carole King

An intriguing concept: one disc of Carole King the singer, one disc of Carole King the songwriter. It's not perfect, but it's a start.

Carole King and James Taylor: Live at the Troubadour

Long past their heyday, singer-songwriter royalty come together for an enjoyable, but ultimately forgettable, live album.

Blood on the Tracks can be viewed as an early example of the potential for a record to be a piece of interactive media.

Elvis Presley: On Stage: Legacy Edition

Elvis at his live best. The music is indispensable, but the endless stream of repackaged product is discouraging.

Music

Don Henley: The Very Best of Don Henley

There was no timely reason for a new Don Henley compilation, but it's better than the old one and the music holds up.

Tim Buckley: Live at the Folklore Center, NYC - March 6, 1967

Even in a solo, voice-and-guitar setting, Tim Buckley was never the typical folksinger. This unearthed concert recording offers an essential glimpse into his evolution.

Music

Leonard Cohen: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970

Thank god Leonard Cohen is back on top, because otherwise we may never have gotten to hear this incredible show.

Music

Woody Guthrie: My Dusty Road

It's no replacement for The Asch Recordings, but the sound quality is revelatory. And besides, it's Woody Guthrie.

Music

Miranda Lambert: Revolution

It's hard to follow one of the decade's finest albums. But you can't really fault Miranda Lambert's music, even when she makes a long and uneven record.

Music

Diane Birch: Bible Belt

Diane Birch's first songs aren't all that memorable, but she's got a remarkable voice and her record sure sounds good, even if it's straight out of 1971.

Various Artists: Music Inspired by the Film Scott Walker: 30 Century Man

An interesting collection of covers to complement the long-awaited DVD release of the Scott Walker documentary. It's no match for the man's own work, but it's a treat for fans.
