Easy is the fifth album by Kelly Willis. It was released on Rykodisc in 2002. The album went to number 29 on Top Country Albums.
Easy is an album recorded by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, and released by Motown Records on September 16, 1969 under the Tamla Records label. One song on the album, " Good Lovin' Ain't Easy To Come By", was a hit single and remains popular to this day. Terrell had been ill, suffering from complications caused by a brain tumor, since the fall of 1967. Marvin Gaye later claimed that as a result, most of the female vocals on this album were performed by Valerie Simpson, who served as co- songwriter and co- producer for the LP with her boyfriend and future husband Nickolas Ashford.
Simpson is quoted in Ludie Montgomery's biography of Terrell, My Sister Tommie, as not having subbed Terrell for vocals. Simpson again explicitly denied having done so in the liner notes to The Complete Motown Singles series. On a recent documentary on Terrell, Simpson admitted she sang with Gaye during sessions saying, "I sang things with Marvin because Tammi was not available. And, then we would bring Tammi in to go over her parts. Those are Tammi Terrell vocals because we know that we went back in with Tammi and got what we needed."
Gaye at the time criticized Motown for the album thinking they were taking advantage of Terrell's health. Motown assured him proceeds from the album would go to Terrell's family for insurance of her health. At the time the album was released, Terrell was on her seventh operation to cure the brain tumor that would eventually kill her after the eighth operation. The album was released on compact disc in 1992, and again in 2001 as part of The Complete Duets.
"Easy" is a song by Commodores for the Motown label, from their fifth studio album, Commodores. Released in March 1977, "Easy" reached #1 on the Billboard R&B chart, and #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of "Easy" paved the way for similar Lionel Richie-composed hit ballads such as " Three Times a Lady" and " Still" and also for Richie's later solo hits.
Richie wrote "Easy" with the intention of it becoming another crossover hit for the group, given the success of a previous single, " Just to Be Close to You", which spent 2 weeks at #1 on the Billboard R&B chart (known as the Hot Soul Singles chart at that time) and peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop charts in 1976.
The song is noted for a feedback noise, with an echo, that is heard in the bridge of the song. Also, an electric guitar solo dominates the instrumental portion of the song. In addition, the other Commodores are heard singing wordless harmonies during the chorus of the song. Strings and Brass are also featured as well.
The edited version receives the most airplay. The longer version from the album features the chorus being repeated more times, a semitone up, from A-flat major to A major (representing the change from morning to afternoon), a few times before it fades out.
Easy is the second studio album released by Australian rock band Grinspoon. The album was released on 1 November 1999, debuting at No. 4 on the Australian album charts (remaining in the top 50 for 13 weeks) and eventually achieving platinum sales in Australia.
Work on the album commenced in August 1999 with producer Jonathan Burnside ( Nirvana, Melvins, Depeche Mode, Meat Beat Manifesto). The album was recorded in Sydney and mixed in Melbourne. The initial release of the album included a bonus disc containing eleven live tracks from the band's New Year's Eve performance at the 1998 Falls Festival.
Four singles were released from the album, " Ready 1", " Secrets", " Rock Show" and " Violent and Lazy", of which "Ready 1" charted in the ARIA Singles Chart at No. 36, "Secrets" at No. 83 and "Rock Show" at No. 78. "Ready 1" was voted in at No. 33 on Triple J's Hottest 100 for 1999, with "Rock Show" and "Secrets" both polling on Triple J's Hottest 100 for 2000, where they reached No. 33 and No. 73 respectively.
The album received two nominations at the Aria Awards in 2000, 'Best Rock Album' and 'Engineer of the Year'.
