Fac reviewing the best  THE RUNAWAYS -- MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE (CO) Atlantic Girls will be girls -- and in the '70s, only one all-girl group garnered the excite- ment caused by The Run- aways. Formed with teenager Joan Jett and Sandy West, the group evolved over the five short years together, with musicians that included Micki Steele, bass; Lita Ford, lead guitar and teen Cherie Currie as lead singer. The film stars Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as dett and Currie. Soundtrack explo- sions have, "Roxy Roller" (Nick Gilder), Suzi Quatro's "The Wild One," MC5's ver- sion of "It's a Man's Man's Man's World," David Bowie contributes "Rebel Rebel," and a pair of Dakota Fanning re- recordings "Cherry Bomb" and "California Paradise." The Runaways deliver "Holly- wood," "You Drive Me Wild," and a "live" version of "I Wanna Be Where the Boys Are." Fanning and Stewart do a fine job with their re-record- ing of "Queens of Noise" and "Dead End Justice," followed by The Stooges "I Wanna Be Your Dog," and the Sex Pis- tols hit the target with "Pretty Vacant," as Joan Jett serves up the finale "Don't Abuse Me." Fanning and Stewart replicated the true energy of The Runaways. ERIKA- OBSESSION (CO) Erika Records Jazz vocalist Erika Matsuo delivers her debut CD by pull- ing out all the stops. Along with the vocals, Erika self-pro- duced the entire album, and even penned two of the 14 songs. The ingredients for success also include using a collection of songs, many writ- ten by Brazil's greatest song- writers -- namely Antonio Carlos Jobim, Djavan and Milton Nascimento. Erika opens with a swinging ver- sion of Cole Porter's "Night and Day," Nascimento's mel- ancholy "Bridges/Travers- sia," singing the pretty "Sam- urai" and "Atras da Porta" in Portugese, plus the free- spirited Van Morrison classic "Moondance." Erika takes on wings, singing like an angel on Jimmy Van Heusen's "I Could Have Told You," trailed by the powerful title track, Billy Strayhorn's pensive "My Little Brown Book," Jobim's bossa nova beauty "Chega de Saudade," and the roman- tic strains of "The Island." Jobim's "Someone To Light Up My Life" maintains the mood, followed by the pretty "Oceano," winding down with a pair of Erika tunes "Love for Life" sung in her native lan- guage and the bossa beat of "I Close My Eyes." Super! ANA MOURA m LEVA-ME AOS FADOS (CO) World Village Fado in Portugese means "fate" -- it is fate that brought the love of that music to Ana Moura. The fact that she was accepted by the elder fadistas was rare, as the older musi- cians didn't normally accept young people. Fate also has by bob morello r the rest her performing, with Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones in the audience, end- ing with her being invited to dinner, to their concert -- that ended with her singing with them on stage. Cur- rently she hangs with Prince who was fascinated with her voice and music. Her 17- track CD shines with the title cut "Caso Arrumado," "Fado das guas," "Fado vestido de fado," "Fado das migoas" and "Esta noite." The sultry Moura will be appearing at Boston's Berklee Performance Center on April 17 th. "Fado is to be felt and each person has the free- dom to feel and to use the song in their particular way," Moura muses. "Sometimes we try to describe too much. I want to leave everyone the freedom to feel fado for them- selves."

SCOTT AUGUST RADIANT SKY (CD) Cedar Mesa Music Award-winning musician Scott August, a multi-instru- mentalist, uses evocative melodies and ethereal har- monies to gently transport you to the sacred places of the imagination. If your en- vironment should require music for relaxation, medita- tion, massage-therapy, spa treatments, yoga workouts or alternative healing, Au- gust is your man. The initial cut "Calling the Sun" sets the mood balance, trailed by the expansive "New Hori- zons," the haunting "Arc of Dreams," the flute-laden "The River of Stars" which is the Incas name for the Milky Way," and the rhythmic "Santa Fe" marks the halfway point. The solo flute strains signal "Since the Stars Fell," as August uses "Rising from the Plateau" to describe 'the moon and stars ascending over the Southwest land- scape' -- along with the heal- ing powers derived from flute and textured guitar "Journey of Solace." Twilight arrives with the lengthy "A Pale Radiance," and August puts his finishing touches on via "Searching Beyond" -- the album ends, "but life's jour- ney is far from over," accord- ing to August.
