34 YEARS OLD THIS MASTERPIECE!!!!!

behindthegrooves:

On this day in music history: April 18, 1980 - “Seventeen Seconds”, the second album by The Cure is released. Produced by Mike Hedges and Robert Smith, it is recorded at Morgan Studio One in London in Early 1980. Following up their debut release “Three Imaginary Boys” (released in the US as “Boys Don’t Cry”), bandleader Robert Smith will write the majority of the music and lyrics for their second release on his parents Hammond organ with a built in tape recorder. The album is recorded and mixed in only seven days, at a cost of around £3000. The collection of mostly downbeat and dark songs will cement their status as one of the premier goth-rock bands, and set their musical path for the next few years. It will spin off the single “A Forest” (#31 UK), becoming their first record to make the UK singles chart. The album will see its first US release in 1981 when A&M Records packages it as part of a 2 LP set titled “…Happily Ever After” with the follow up album “Faith”. It will stay in print only a couple of years before it is deleted, and will remain so until it is finally reissued as a stand alone album in 1986, after Elektra Records in the US acquires the rights to The Cure’s earlier albums. “Seventeen Seconds” will peak at number twenty on the UK album chart.

MASTERPIECE!!!!!!!

behindthegrooves:

On this day in music history: April 14, 1973 - “Masterpiece” by The Temptations hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 2 weeks, also peaking at #7 on the Hot 100 on April 28, 1973. Written and produced by Norman Whitfield, it is the eleventh R&B chart topper for the veteran Motown vocal group. Songwriter and producer Norman Whitfield will give the song its title when he feels that all of the combined elements of the piece add up to a “masterpiece”, though the word does not appear in the lyrics. Whitfield will write “Masterpiece” as a sequel to the Grammy winning smash “Papa Was A Rolling Stone (and the album “All Directions”), and features members of The Funk Brothers providing musical support and is arranged by Paul Riser. The single and album are recorded during a period where there is ever mounting tension between the highly strung producer and The Temptations, who are unhappy at having no say in the creative process, and are being referred to by music critics as “the Norman Whitfield Choral Singers”. “Masterpiece” will be edited down from its nearly fourteen minute epic length down to under four and a half minutes for single release. Though the Tempts will top the R&B chart three more times with “Let Your Hair Down”, “Happy People”, “Shakey Ground”, in 1974 and 1975 respectively, “Masterpiece” will be will be the group’s last top 10 pop hit for eighteen years, returning to upper reaches of the chart when they collaborate with Rod Stewart on “The Motown Song” peaking at #10 in September of 1991. “Masterpiece” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
