In the 1880s and 1890s, Romanticism blazed its last. Just as Brahms was writing his final works, wreathed in a twilit halo, the young Debussy began composing. Hence his early works were born in the nostalgic mists of a century that was drawing to a close; but the gigantic sketchbook that we are invited to leaf through here is also animated by the life force that was to lead Debussy's music to explore resolutely new musical territories, and to advance, in total freedom, towards sounds that had never been heard before.

Immer wieder begeistert das Berliner Originalklang-Ensemble lautten compagney mit einzigartigen Programmen für ihre beeindruckenden und vielfach ausgezeichneten Aufnahmen. Nachdem sie bei "Timeless" Musik von Tarquinio Merula und Philip Glass und bei "Misterio" Werke von Biber und Piazzolla genial miteinander verbunden haben, ist auch ihr neues Album mit der herausragenden Sopranistin Dorothee Mields ein genialer Wurf. Thema von "War & Peace" ist die musikalische Verarbeitung von Krieg und Frieden.

Vollendung des Beethoven-Zyklus’: Nach den von der Presse hochgelobten »sensationellen Aufnahmen« (NDR) der Sinfonien 1 bis 8 erscheint jetzt die weltberühmte Sinfonie Nr. 9. in d-moll, die Beethoven zwischen 1817 und 1824 komponierte. Auch in dieser Aufnahme beweist der charismatische Giovanni Antonini sowie das vielfach preisgekrönte Kammerorchester Basel, welches sowohl in historischer Aufführungspraxis als auch mit modernen Instrumenten musiziert, wie spektakulär neu Beethoven klingen kann.

I was apprehensive about buying the Music On Vinyl edition but after listening to it, I have been amazed at the great sound it has. It has great separation & texture of the instruments. Listen to "Sea Of Joy". The bass is strong and robust. The nylon-strings guitar sounds wonderful. Listen to "Can't Find My Way Home".

An experiment, I posted the MOV edition, now I post this reissue of 1986 to end with the original UK edition.
My idea is to compare these pressings with the same gear and determine the differences in sound (if any).

Blind Faith's first and last album, more than 30 years old and counting, remains one of the jewels of the Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and Ginger Baker catalogs, despite the crash-and-burn history of the band itself, which scarcely lasted six months. As much a follow-up to Traffic's self-titled second album as it is to Cream's final output, it merges the soulful blues of the former with the heavy riffing and outsized song lengths of the latter for a very compelling sound unique to this band.

Cream was a band born to the stage, a fact that the band and their record label realized the public fully understood by the number one U.S. chart placement for Wheels of Fire, with its entire live disc, and the number two chart peak for Goodbye, the posthumous release that was dominated by concert recordings. And in response to those success, we got Live Cream, Vol. 1 (originally known simply as Live Cream) in the spring of 1970, nearly 18 months after the trio’s breakup.

Cream is good at a number of things; unfortunately song-writing and recording are not among them. However, they are fantastic performers and excellent musicians. Their latest recording, Wheels of Fire, a two-record set inside a silver jacket, proves all this.
One record is subtitled "In the Studio." The set begins with a Jack Bruce original, "White Room," which is practically an exact duplication of "Tales of Brave Ulysses" from their Disraeli Gears album, including the exact same lines for guitar, bass and drums. The lyrics are not much to speak of and it's very difficult to imagine why they would want to do this again, unless of course, they had forgotten that they had done it before. The Sonny Bono-ish production job adds little.

…just the right amount of weirdness…
It started as a joke. Mick Turner one of Cream’s roadies was discussing with drummer, Ginger Baker, how he fancied one of those bikes with’ Disraeli gears’. He meant, of course, derailleur gears, but the band found the mistake hilarious and so the name of one of one of the UK’s premier psychedelic albums was born.

The other albums, which share many of the same personnel, were ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ and ‘Introducing Ruben Gonzalez’.

After eight years of performing together, the SpiriTango Quartet nowproposes mind-blowing original versions which are almost transgressive. They bring a freshness and a novelty which goes beyond the scope of traditional tango. Indeed most of the pieces on the album are French works from modern-day composers, adding another dash of boldness. Such was SpiriTango’s original aim: to assert themselves with a great deal of personal inspiration.

Third album, recorded in 1993, by Ali Farka Touré for the English of World Circuit, The Source marks a pivotal moment in the career of the legendary Malian guitarist. For the first time he is surrounded by his close guard, the group Asco, which includes Afel Bocoum singing and Hama Sankare Oumar Toure and chorus and percussion. But these musicians who will remain with him until the end of his life (2006) are not the only ones to highlight the song and the precious riffs of the leader of what we call, in spite of himself, the desert blues.
