Here are sets of Pictures to suit almost every personal art gallery. The newest issue (though not the most recently recorded—it has a 1979 analogue source) is the least memorable. The orchestral playing is excellent and certain portrayals are striking, the ”Ballet of Unhatched Chicks”, for instance and ”Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle”, while the closing sequence is strongly projected.

George Duke - Faces in Reflection (1974/2015) [TR24][OF]

George Duke - Faces in Reflection
Jazz Funk, Fusion | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/88.2 kHz | 39:40 min | 783 MB | Front Cover
Label: MPS Classical | Tracks: 09 | Rls.date: 1974/2015

Released in 1974, Faces in Reflection was, in many ways, George Duke's third album as a leader for MPS. The first two, Solus and The Inner Source, were recorded separately but issued as a double-LP by SABA, which shortly thereafter ceased doing business and was folded into MPS. That said, there is little resemblance between the man who recorded his early albums like Save the Country, those aforementioned, and the seasoned studio experimentalist who cut Faces in Reflection.

Label: Island Records/ILPS-9365 | Released: 1971 | US Issue: 1976 | Genre: Irish-Folk

This is the real stuff, the very best of the group’s early albums and the best representation of the Chieftains’ original sound.

CD reissue with four unreleased tracks.

Label: Island Records/ILPS 9364 | Released: 1964 | US Issue: 1976 | Genre: Irish-Folk

The debut album by the Chieftains, recorded when they were still a semi-professional outfit, is more restrained than their subsequent efforts. The opening number introduces each of the bandmembers, Paddy Moloney and Sean Potts on pipes, followed by Michael Tubridy on flute and David Fallon on bodhran, Martin Fay on the fiddle, and then Tubridy on the concertina. The group would later acquire what can only be called a more soulful approach, but the playing here was a revelation at the time, if only for its stripped-down authenticity.

Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene Trilogy (40th Anniversary Edition) (2016) 3LP/FLAC

Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene Trilogy (40th Anniversary Edition)

Label: Sony Music / Columbia | Tracks: 20 | Rls.date: 2016

40 years after the huge international impact of OXYGENE, and 20 years from its second volume OXYGENE 7-13, Jean-Michel Jarre is fulfilling a trilogy of albums with OXYGENE 3, containing seven newly composed and recorded pieces, consistently titled parts 14-20. His inspiration for the newly added parts on OXYGENE 3 was not to go back in time, but to add a sense of “now” to his iconic piece of work. Plunging into the environment of OXYGENE with its highly original dark, moody and at times quite upbeat musical language, Jarre references some of the music from his entire body of work on OXYGENE 3. It’s a state-of-the-art recording, embracing both classic and modern ways of music production.

Essential: a masterpiece of rock music
WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAM
Deeply inspired by the rise and fall of Vince Taylor (whom Bowie incidentally met in 1971). David/Ziggy will mix this story with science-fiction themes, the atmosphere of the star rock system mixing the whole stuff with his androgynous look. Ziggy will appear as such on stage. Intelligent glam rock? Probably.

Galadriel biography
The band’s sole legacy, a self-titled album released in 1971, is quite similar to myriads of obscure early 70’s rock bands with vague progressive leanings: blues based with elements of soft or folk-rock (JETHRO TULL-style for the flute), a bit of jazz and some hard rock.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
There’s no question that Billy Cobham is one of the most talented and influencial drummers on the planet. I had high hopes going into this one that it would be another “Birds Of Fire” shred-fest. Not quite, although the first song delivers big time in that style. Jan Hammer, his old MAHIVISHNU ORCHESTRA band mate helps out, while Tommy Bolin doesn’t disappoint on guitars. We also get some bass, sax, flugelhorn, trumpet and flute to round out this mostly jazzy sounding album.

I return to my vinyl rip origins: The Early or Ancient Music.
The ancient music ensemble “Atrium Musicae De Madrid” directed by Gregorio Paniagua, brings this, one of my favorites LP, before falling into a sort of fusion-new age in the 80s middle.

The Sallyangie biography
This early folk duo of Mike Oldfield and sister Sally were ‘discovered’ by PENTANGLE guitarist John Renbourn in 1967 when Mike and his sister were both still in their teens and playing acoustic music in regional clubs. The two recorded a lone album (‘Children of the Sun’) for Transatlantic in 1969, and disbanded shortly after following a brief tour.

The fifth album by the Chieftains was also their best, and their first one to cross over, at least in America — where it was originally issued by the Island label — to progressive rock audiences.
