Morningbird Records has come out swinging. The Columbia company, which started in 1999 promoting its Christian singing groups over the Internet, has had its Christian jazz group, praise-and-worship ensemble and contemporary Christian band broadcast on radio stations in Australia and Zambia after the music is downloaded off the Internet. Their music is on the shelves in area Christian bookstores as well as at Record and Tape Traders and the Borders bookstore in Columbia. Since 1999, the label has sold more than 6,000 compact discs.

Again and again, she made me smile that year. And just when I thought she'd be around for a while, just when I thought she'd lift me into the stratosphere with more of her music -- poof! -- the girl was gone. Adriana Evans is the mysterious songstress whose CD stayed in my changer and Walkman for an entire year, filling my headphones day in and out. I still play her album regularly. In '97, my sophomore year at the University of Arkansas, the San Francisco-raised artist dropped her self-titled debut.

BOSTON - Thus begins another day in the Internet cafe. I arrive at the office, decap my java, turn on the computer, and begin consuming the typical American breakfast: coffee and spam. On my electronic plate I find the usual fare: Several offers to enlarge my penis, an opportunity to lose weight while I sleep, a chance to get a lower mortgage, get out of debt, buy prescription drugs online, all while watching XXX-rated teen-agers. With the only utensil at hand - a plastic delete button - I pick at my food.

The timing is off -- way off. But Sunshine Anderson feels it's better late than never. After nearly six years of silence, the R&B singer has finally released her sophomore effort, Sunshine After Midnight. The CD belatedly follows her hit 2001 debut, Your Woman. Spurred by the sassy, strutting crossover smash "Heard It All Before," that album entered the Top 10 on Billboard's pop charts five Aprils ago, eventually going gold. Anderson's lyrical directness and swaggering, slightly off-key approach drew comparisons to the original 'hood-rat diva, Mary J. Blige.

WASHINGTON -- Federal health officials proposed new label warnings for all antidepressants yesterday, a move aimed at protecting 18- to 24-year-olds who might be at increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior during early months of treatment. The "black box" update would follow similar changes made to antidepressants' labels in 2005 that added a warning of increased suicide risks among children and adolescents but did not give specific ages.

When coronary arteries get dangerously narrow, the solution -- increasingly -- is to prop open the walls with a device called a drug-eluting stent. Now, two new studies are adding fuel to a growing debate about whether these stents are being overused, with ill consequences for patients. The studies, both published in the May 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, included large groups of patients who were treated for narrowing in their coronary arteries with the stents, which are tiny drug-coated cylinders used to prop open blocked arteries.

The so-called "neo-soul" field is already crowded with wannabe-smooth brothers who croon sweet nothings over hip-hop-laced grooves, injecting their sound with heavy Stevie Wonder-isms and Donny Hathaway inflections. A new artist, Javier (pronounced hav-e-air), wants to join the band, so to speak, with a sound that's warmly familiar. Like Glenn Lewis and Maxwell, he sets out to charm the ladies with ballads dripping passion. "I'm an easygoing kind of guy," says the singer, 25, calling from Los Angeles.

The sista is doing it for herself. As Jonatha Brooke discusses her new album, Back in the Circus, and its promotional tour, she sits in her New York City apartment, stuffing envelopes with autographed CDs. "I'm surrounded by foam mail packaging," the independent folk-pop artist says on the phone. "I personally sign the Web site orders I get." That's a lot of scribbling. Her last CD, Steady Pull, was a success on her Bad Dog label, moving 80,000 units without the push of a major label.

You should always stick with a name you can trust.Or should you?Intelligent investors who put money in the stocks of companies that make trusted brand-name consumer products have been hammered hard in 1993. It started as Philip Morris Cos. slashed prices on cigarettes to compete with fast-rising discount brands.A panic developed, resulting in price declines in stocks of countless brand-name firms that might conceivably face generic or private-brand competition.Some worry is justified, but not in all cases.

The real precedent for The Complete Motown Singles is the three volumes of The Complete Stax-Volt Singles, a compilation of every A and B side issued by the Memphis soul label. The first Stax set covered 244 singles over 10 years. This quite remarkable six-CD set collects the first 155 tracks recorded by Berry Gordy Jr. for his affiliated labels (Tamla, Gordy, Anna and all the other offshoots that would come to be collectively known as Motown) during just a three-year period. Those numbers give us some perspective on the Complete Motown compilation project that will, if plans pan out, eventually include every Motown single over a whopping 12 volumes.
