Infinity is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey from her sixth compilation album, #1 to Infinity. It was released by Epic Records, as the only single from the album. Carey wrote the song in collaboration with Eric Hudson, Priscilla Renea, Taylor Parks and Ilsey Juber. In the Mix is a song by singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. The song was co-written and co-produced by Carey along with Daniel Moore II. However, plans were changed when Island Def Jam Music head L.A. Reid suggested to Carey she record a few more strong songs to ensure the albums success! The accompanying music video was released the same day as the singles release, featuring clips from Mixed-ish, as well as footage of Carey and her children in the recording studio.
Dionne Warwick enjoyed a career revival in the late ’70s and 1980s when she teamed with such producers as Barry Manilow, Barry Gibb, and even Luther Vandross. They returned her to the elaborately arranged and structured soul-tinged pop that had marked her finest hits, although the lyrics and compositions weren’t as consistent as they were during her Burt Bacharach/Hal David period. This album collects the biggest hits from this second phase of Warwick’s career, including such triumphs as “Deja Vu” and “I Know I’ll Never Love This Way Again”; it also introduced a new tune, “Take Good Care of You And Me.”
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of vocalist Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. With their heavy, guitar-driven sound, they are regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, although their style drew from a variety of influences, including blues and folk music.
By the time of their first LP, the group were already sliding toward a straighter blues outlook than had been explored on their more R&B/pop-flavored early singles. For that reason, it might disappoint mid-’60s beat fans looking for something wilder and catchier. As a blues group they were competent, but the execution here is kind of lugubrious, and not up to the level of the best British blues acts with a similar repertoire.
