* Indigo Swing, "Red Light," Time Bomb. New takes on jump, swing and rock 'n' roll, straight from Capitol's legendary Studio B.
* Lonestar, "Lonely Grill," BNA. The third album from a regular in the country Top 10.
* Randy Newman, "Bad Love," DreamWorks. The highlights of the satirist's first full collection of pop songs in 11 years stand with his best work, Robert Hilburn wrote in a profile of Newman in The Times last week.
