•CONCERTS FOR THE PEOPLE OF KAM-PUCHEA—The Who, Paul McCartney, the Clash and Robert Plant, among others, were in good form for a good cause.

•HARD PROMISES—Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Promises lived up to.

•MISTAKEN IDENTITY—Kim Carnes. With a voice that has the tickle of a kitten’s tongue and feline sensuality to match, Carnes has become a no-mistake-about-it pop artist.

•ONE TO ONE—Ed Bruce. A late-blooming star at 41, Bruce reminds Nashville how good no-frills country music can be.

•PURITY OF ESSENCE—The Rumour. Pssst, these veterans of the English pub rock scene are the real thing.

•SEVEN YEAR ACHE—Rosanne Cash. A vibrant country rock LP suggests a variation on the old saying: like father, like daughter.

•SOMEWHERE IN ENGLAND—George Harrison. A musical genius confronts melancholia with a defiant message of optimism.

•TARANTELLA—Chuck Mangione. Dizzy Gillespie and Steve Gadd join him in a rich jazz concert to benefit Italian quake victims.
