Russ Ballard - The Seer (1993)
EAC Rip | FLAC: Image+Cue+Log | 399 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 146 Mb | Scans | Time: 01:01:58
Genre: Soft Rock, Pop Rock | Label: Intercord | Cat.№: INT 845.193

A welcome return after a long absence. The 13 song CD opens with "Only Love Can Save Me" which is probably not the most convincing number on the album, though it does grow on you with listening. The next two songs are Ballard at his best. "Stay With Me Tonight" and "Vibrate" are uptempo catchy beasts that stick in the mind. On the whole this is an album that you have to listen to a few times to get into it. The effort is worthwhile because this is undoubtedly an excellent collection of new songs, six co-written with Chris Winter.

Not just a great tribute, but one of the best blues releases in years. England's premier blues band, The Hoax, follow up last year's fantastic album, "Big City Blues" with this great 'tribute' to B.B. King. The twin guitars of Jesse Davey and Jon Amor are absolutely on fire throughout the entire set, singer Hugh Coltman's voice has never sounded better, and the rhythm section of Robin Davey on bass & Mark Barrett on drums are rock solid. Complemented by a smokin' horn section and keyboards for this recording, the band really gives the listener the impression that they all really love these songs, and their idol that they pay tribute to with each and every note played. Not only one of the best 'tribute' albums I have ever heard, but one of the finest blues albums I have had the pleasure of listening to in years. ~ Stephen G. Headrickon, Amazon

Umlaut - To Your Poverty Quietly Go (2014)

Experimental, Jazz, Rock, Chamber-Pop | Romero Records #ROM009

The second album from Mr. Bungle horn-man Bär (Clinton) McKinnon. Shrouded in controversy, the album swings from meticulous chamber-pop majesty to unapologetic 4-track romps. It echoes in McKinnon's work with Mr. Bungle, but deepens his singular voice with lush compositions, elegiac meditations , and crushing bursts of irreverence. "After spending years on the international circuit as a member of Mr. Bungle and the Secret Chiefs 3, Bär (pronounced "bear") settled in Melbourne and went into hibernation, writing a mountain of songs. The result is Umlaut. Playing like a film score, Umlaut is a mix of Burt Bacharach - infused pop set in a cartoon - like world. The offbeat tunes fuse saxophone, flute and keyboards with more traditional rock guitars - an appealing mix that is quirky, energetic and beautiful."

Jan Garbarek Group – Twelve Moons (1993) {ECM 1500}
EAC 1.0b1 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U+MD5 | Full Scans 300dpi | 399MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Jazz, Ethnic Fusion

This 1992 recording by the Garbarek Group has their customary blend of Norwegian folk themes and original compositions, with the leader's big-toned soprano and tenor saxophones at the heart of a music that combines cool lyricism and intense, if restrained, passion. It's the emotion that Garbarek can concentrate in a single note that distinguishes his work. His soprano is a keening wail in the unaccompanied introduction to "Brother Wind March," his high-register tenor an impassioned cry on "The Tall Tear Trees." Rainer Bruninghaus's piano provides a reflectively lyrical contrast, while the shifting rhythms of percussionists Manu Katche and Marilyn Mazur add variety to the reiterated themes. The CD is filled with distinctively Norwegian touches.

Benjamin Frith - John Field: Piano Music, Vol. 1 Nocturnes and Sonatas (1999)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 168 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 155 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | # 8.550761 | Time: 01:01:39

Benjamin Frith’s playing is delectably coaxing, and he makes these Nocturnes so often seem exquisitely like Chopin, yet still catches their naïve innocence, especially in the A flat major work. He hops, skips and jumps delightfully in the Irish Rondo finale of the First Sonata and is hardly less beguiling in the rather more imposing opening movement of the Second.

Gianna Nannini - GiannaBest (2007) 2CD

Gianna Nannini used to release a compilation every decade, and the double-CD Giannabest is her entry for the 2000s. In addition to all of the usual greatest hits, the thoroughly superb Giannabest trumps former collections by including material from the four fine studio albums Nannini released between 1998 and 2007, the 1971 rare demo "Sola con la Vela," a Will Malone remix of "Meravigliosa Creatura," and three stunning new songs written with Pacifico, "Suicidio d'Amore," "Pazienza," and "Mosca Cieca".

Badfinger - Straight Up (1971) [Remastered 1993]
EAC Rip | APE: Image+Cue+Log | 394 Mb | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 184 Mb | Scans | Time: 01:05:10
Genre: Rock, Power Pop | Label: Capitol Records | Cat.№: CDP 0777 7 81403 2 0

Straight Up is the third album by British rock band Badfinger, released in December 1971 in the United States and February 1972 in Britain. Issued on the Beatles' Apple record label, it includes the hit singles "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue", and the similarly popular "Name of the Game", all of which were written by singer and guitarist Pete Ham. The album marked a departure from the more rock-oriented sound of Badfinger's previous releases, partly as a result of intervention by Apple Records regarding the band's musical direction. Although Straight Up received a mixed response from critics on release, many reviewers now regard it as the band's best album. Rolling Stone critic David Fricke has referred to it as "Badfinger's power-pop apex".

Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera - 2 Studio Albums (1968-1969)
EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks/image+.cue+log) - 631 MB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 236 MB | Covers - 94 MB
Genre: Progressive/Psychedelic Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Repertoire Records

Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, a very long name for a short living British band formed in 1967 during the peak of British Psychedelia, but despite their formation era, they were one of the most advanced bands from their era, blended with great respect R&B, Jazz Psychedelia a la early Pink Floyd and a touch of The Nice style, hard to say if they were inspired in Keith Emerson's sound because they are coetaneous, but you can find many similarities. The first option was The Velvet Opera, but Dave Terry appeared in a session wearing a long black cape and a preachers hat, the band immediately identified him with Sinclair Lewis fictional character Elmer Gantry and in that moment his name changed and the band was baptized as Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera...

Milt Jackson & Coleman Hawkins - Bean Bags (1958) {2012 Japan 24-bit Remaster} [Jazz Best Collection 1000 Series]
EAC rip (secure mode) | FLAC (tracks)+CUE+LOG -> 224 Mb | MP3 @320 -> 86 Mb

Jazz / Bop / Hard Bop / Saxophone / Vibes

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really work nicely with the album's slight Latin inflections – a bit like those you might hear on some of Hawkins' Impulse Records material from the same generation.

Oysterband - Granite Years (Best Of 1986-1997) (2000)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 779 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 295 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans ~ 110 Mb
Genre: Folk Rock, Celtic Rock | Label: Cooking Vinyl | # COOK CD 196 | Time: 02:02:31

An impressive collection, Granite Years: Best of 1986-1997 contains over two hours of the finest Oysterband has to offer. Frequently, such comprehensive releases are the cause for debate among the most devoted fans. But that is not the scenario surrounding this release. From Step Outside's "Hal-an-Tow" to Wide Blue Yonder's "The Oxford Girl" to Holy Bandits' "Blood Wedding" to Deep Dark Ocean's "Native Son," this release hits all of the key tracks by this legendary British folk-rock band. If there is any drawback, it is that no track from their 1991 release, From Little Rock to Leipzig, was included and a whopping seven tracks from their previous best-of release, Trawler, grace the track list of this two-CD set. It should be clarified that Trawler was a collection of re-recorded favorites that originally appeared on previous albums. That's a minor detail that won't matter to the uninitiated and is easily overlooked by the hardcore fan simply due to the preponderance of superb material found within these 30 tracks.
