Dass die Steel Guitar nicht allein ein Instrument der Country Music ist, beweist Robert Randolph, den schon Legenden wie Santana und Sly Stone ins Studio holten. Nach ausgedehnten Tourneen und Erfolgsalben wie Colorblind (feat. Eric Clapton & Dave Matthews) und We Walk This Road (produziert von T-Bone Burnett) dürfte sein groovendes Blue-Note-Debüt sein bislang bestes und innovativstes Album geworden sein.

The Belgian synth-pop group Telex was formed in 1978 by Marc Moulin, Dan Lacksman, and Michel Moers, with the intention of "Making something really European, different from rock, without guitar and the idea was electronic music." Mixing the aesthetics of disco, punk and experimental electronic music, they released a stripped-down synthesized cover version of "Twist à St. Tropez" by Les Chats Sauvages. They followed up with an ultra-slow cover of "Rock Around the Clock," a hilariously relaxed and dispassionate version of one-hit-wonder Plastic Bertrand''s punk song "Ça Plane Pour Moi," and a perversely mechanical cover of "Dance to the Music," originally by Sly Stone. Like Kraftwerk, Telex built its music entirely from electronic instruments, and the sounds of the two groups have a certain similarity. However, unlike Kraftwerk''s studied Teutonic irony, Telex favor a more joyously irreverent humor.

Robert "Bumps" Blackwell (May 23, 1922 March 9, 1985) was an American songwriter, arranger, and record producer, best known for his work overseeing the early hits of Little Richard, as well as grooming Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Lloyd Price, Sam Cooke, Herb Alpert, Larry Williams, and Sly and the Family Stone at the start of their music careers. He should not be confused with another songwriter: Otis Blackwell. Born Robert Alexander Blackwell in Seattle, Washington, he led a jazz group in the late 1940s that included pianist Ray Charles and trumpeter Quincy Jones. He moved to Hollywood, California to continue study composition, but he instead took a job at Art Rupe's Specialty Records as an arranger and producer. He worked with Larry Williams, Lloyd Price and Guitar Slim, as well as "discovering" Little Richard in 1955. Blackwell produced and co-wrote hits for Little Richard including: "Long Tall Sally", "Good Golly Miss Molly", "Ready Teddy", and "Rip It Up". They all quickly became rock and roll standards, and have subsequently been covered by hundreds of artists including Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

The band ceased to be in 1999 after frontman Mark Sandman died of a heart attack while performing onstage. Morphine combined blues and jazz elements with more traditional rock arrangements, giving the band a very unusual sound. Sandman's distinctive singing was described as a "deep, laid-back croon, and his songwriting featured a prominent beat influence. When asked by reporters to describe their music, the band created the label "low rock". One critical appraisal suggests that "Morphine immediately established a minimalist, low-end sound that could have easily become a gimmick: a 'power trio' not built around the sound of an electric guitar. Instead, with sly intelligence, Morphine expanded its offbeat vocabulary on each album. Although Morphine was critically lauded throughout their career, it is difficult to measure their success commercially.
