In 1981 Juice Newton released her third solo album, Juice. While many had never heard her until this album, she had been around for awhile. Before going solo she was in the band Juice Newton and Silver Spur which had released three albums before splitting. Juice was the multi platinum breakthrough album containing two #1 hits "Angel of the Morning" and "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)". It also features "Queen of Hearts," the biggest-selling single of her career, peaking at #2 on both Billboard's Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts. The vomit inducing "Endless Love" by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie prevented the song from reaching #1. Maybe I was a bit harsh about Endless Love, I hear some people liked it. "Queen of Hearts" was also a popular music video during the summer of MTV's debut year. Juice Newton is probably mostly associated with country music yet this album is all pop. The old girl is still around and most recently released an album back in 2010.
MP3s that will appear on this blog will be available for only a week or so(usually far less) and are here for sampling purposes only. It is not my intention to violate copyrights. My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
