Absolutely incredible soundboard recording of this fantastic performance. If you are a big fan of the Adore era of this band in 1998, then this is a must own. Live at the Viper Room 1.15.98 is a live album by The Smashing Pumpkins documenting the January 15, 1998 solo acoustic performances by Billy Corgan and James Iha at the The Viper Room. It is the second installment of the archival series after Live at Kawasaki 2.24.92, though Live at the Viper Room shipped first. In this edition, Iha debuts his solo material for Let It Come Down, while Corgan debuts the new songs for Adore, both only on acoustic guitar.

Red Queen to Gryphon Three is only available coupled with the Raindance album on the same disc, but it has stood the test of time as an excellent progressive rock piece. The album centers around a game of chess, with each track around ten minutes in length. The symphonic structure of the movements intricately combine rich textured strings with medieval horns, reminiscent of 16th century England. The keyboards bridge together certain passages with just the right intensity so that they keep from modernizing the album's feel. While some progressive rock can seem over the top or contrived, Gryphon mixes subtlety with diversity to formulate beautiful streamlined music. The use of the bassoon and krumhorn gives this album depth and a profound musical element not found in other bands of the same nature. The tempos and accents express moods that are structured for each piece precisely, such as the brainstorming arrangements in "Opening Move" and the victorious finale heard throughout "Checkmate," the last song on the album. The absence of vocals lets the music carry extra weight, enhancing the vision of the chessboard in the mind's eye.

1:07:28 | Classical | Label: Piano 21

There are interpretations of Schubert’s Impromptus that are full of poetry and lyricism, full of internalization (I’m thinking of Perianes and Pires), and there are much harsher, hard-chiseled ones (Ashkenazy). Cyprien Katsaris combines both views, thus achieving interesting contrasts. He reveals the singing Schubert as well as the rumbling, even the hot-tempered and angry Schubert, and all this in a very clear, transparent piano sound, in which also expressive levels can be revealed without blurring. The overall impression is of a very personal, highly committed and always alert, spontaneous performance that expresses Schubert’s emotional ups and downs without any sentimentality.Urgent release to commemorate Katsaris' visit to Japan! Schubert Improvisations on Bechstein! The latest recordings from 2022 & 2023 from the independent label "Piano21" of Cyprian Katsaris, the wizard of the keyboard, the incarnation of superb technique! Recently, he has been releasing rare transcriptions of Bizet's "Don Giovanni" (ONIFCCD141) and Saint-Saens' "Symphony with Organ" (OP21064N) arranged by Katsaris himself, and this time, he has released a new recording of "Schubert's 31 short years of life" (OP21064N). Please look forward to a new frontier of Katsaris, who continues to deepen and deepen his repertoire at the age of over 70.

Goose Creek Symphony originally found its roots in the Phoenix, Arizona area as a countrified side project for Richie Hart & the Heart Beats. Vocalist and guitarist Charles Gearheart (aka Richie Hart) spent his childhood "up Goose Creek Hollow" in Floyd County, Kentucky, and when he put together his good-time country-rock group, he drew upon his home's rich musical heritage as well as its name. In 1970, Gearheart and a group of local studio musicians assembled a handful of songs and presented them to Capitol Records. Capitol signed his project, forcing Gearheart to assemble a touring group. Banjo player and fiddler Fred Weisz was brought in to complement existing guitarists Paul Spradlin (listed as "Paul Howard" on the album), Bob Henke ("Williard"), Mike McFadden (following the breakup of his psychedelic group Superfine Dandelion), as well as a rotating cast of bassists and drummers. With a sound very similar to what the Band was doing at the same time, Goose Creek Symphony were rock & rollers who played a very faithful brand of country music, all the while layering rhythms and harmonies along the same lines as Buffalo Springfield and the Grateful Dead.

33:27 | Country Rock, Soft Rock | Label: RCA - Legacy

Surprise is the fourth studio album by American country music singer Sylvia. People Magazine reviewed it on 5.14.84: "Not only has Sylvia changed her look (with the help of makeup artist Way Bandy) to something that's as close to punk as any Nashvillian is likely to get, but she has also gotten a little rambunctious musically. Most of this album, such as William Davidson's "On the Other Side of Midnight" and the Dennis Morgan-Don Pfrimmer tune "Victims of Goodbye," is typical Sylvia, lilting ballads rendered with just the right touches of heartbreak. But there are also a couple of atypically revved-up tracks, especially "Give 'Em Rhythm," a rockabilly stomper by Morgan and Skeeter Davis that includes homages to Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis, and a lathered-up "One Foot on the Street." Sylvia is not likely to threaten, say, Lacy J. Dalton or any other honky-tonk honey, but she pulls off this digression with style and zest. It provides an enjoyable change of pace on an entertaining LP."

Drenched in authenticity and rife with barstool charm with an addictive, Tennessee limestone gravel in her voice, Nashville-born and bred songbird Lauren Watkins writes, breathes, and lives country music. The 24-year-old original grew up on the outskirts of Guitar Town, mesmerized by a jukebox rotation of country music, from outlaws like Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow to chart-toppers Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, and Chris Stapleton. Moving back after four years at Ole Miss, Watkins’ unyielding, turn-on-a-dime lyricism quickly caught the attention of GRAMMY-nominated multi-hyphenate Nicolle Galyon, who signed her to publishing and recording contracts with Songs & Daughters / Big Loud Records almost instantly. Honing in on a sound that’s both reverent of the genre’s roots and in lockstep with where it's headed next, she’s introducing her take on country music now with a double shot debut: seven-song set Introducing: Lauren Watkins, and six-song sequence, Introducing: The Heartbreak, both out now, with her highly anticipated full-length debut slated for release this summer. Watkins has previously toured with ERNEST, Morgan Wallen, Conner Smith, Jameson Rodgers, Austin Snell, Lily Rose, and more.

Dotées d’un répertoire qui a déjà conquis un public très vaste (plus de 100 000 exemplaires de leur premier album vendus, 70 millions de vues et 30 millions de streams sur le titre Donnez-moi…) et une tournée de plus de 150 dates pour célébrer leurs deux albums (un début d’exploitation du deuxième album à l’Olympia avant de finir la tournée au mythique Zénith de Paris en avril 2023) les Frangines se présentent désormais comme une valeur sûre.
Les Frangines reviennent aujourd’hui avec un opus aussi audacieux que captivant. Porté par le succès de leur reprise mémorable de Demain dès l'aube (2017), poème signé Victor Hugo, le duo se lance aujourd’hui dans un nouveau projet : dédier un album entier aux vers dont les auteurs les ont profondément inspirés.
Nouvel album « Poèmes », inclus « Demain dès l’aube » de Victor Hugo, « Le Dormeur du Val » d’Arthur Rimbaud et « Liberté » de Paul Éluard.
