The world-renowned New York Philharmonic (officially the Philharmonic-Symphony Society of New York) is America's oldest symphony orchestra, a prime example of high standards of performance to musicians and audiences everywhere. Beginning in the 1820s, there were several attempts to found an orchestra in the city, the more successful of which were the Philharmonic Symphony Society (established in 1842) and the New York Symphony (established in 1878). The Philharmonic had a reputation for conservatism and high standards, hiring primarily European conductors, such as Gustav Mahler. The Symphony seemed more ambitious and interested in new music. It received patronage from Andrew Carnegie, enabling the building of Carnegie Hall (1891), with an inaugural concert led by Walter Damrosch and Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky.

There´s no doubt that Gary Moore is considered to be one of the greatest rock guitarists ever, he will be missed for each day that passes by. It has already been 3 years since he died of a heart attack in his sleep during a vacation in Spain. There are some box set´s available with Gary Moore but this one is by far the best, with 5 of his greatest hard rock albums between 1982-1989. I only miss Back on the streets from 1978 and Dirty fingers from 1983 but I can´t complain, these 5 included are his best solo albums.

Matt Bianco is a UK group formed in 1982 by Mark Reilly (vocals), Danny White (keyboards) and the late Kito Poncioni (bass), all originally members of the band Blue Rondo A La Turk. For their first album "Whose Side Are You On?" they hired unknown polish vocalist Basia Trzetrzelewska. Her vocal arrangements gave the album a jazzy dimension that Reilly and White couldn't anticipate and hits like "Get Out of Your Lazy Bed" and "Half a Minute" turned Matt Bianco into one of the biggest acts of the 1980s. Forty years later the group is releasing this new double album: "The Essential Matt Bianco", including thirty tracks from throughout their career, lovingly re-imagined and re-loved. Meaning these favourite tracks from the Matt Bianco catalogue are either re-recorded or remixed and have been interpreted for where we are now in 2022. This album will be extensively toured with concerts around the world.

With the death from lung cancer of Camarón de la Isla (born José Monge Cruz) on July 2, 1992, flamenco lost one of its greatest vocalists. The son of a basket-maker, de la Isla revolutionalized the flamenco tradition with his contemporary-minded approach. His debut 1969 album, Con la Colaboracion Especial de Paco de Lucia, recorded with the accompaniment of virtuosic guitarist Paco de Lucia, remains one of flamenco's classic recordings. Although he retired from touring in 1979, de la Isla continued to produce groundbreaking albums. His 1980 album, La Leyenda del Tiempo – which was marked by rock, jazz, and Oriental influences and the use of non-flamenco instruments, including bass, drums, percussion, electric piano, Moog, keyboards, electric guitar, flute, and zither – sold nearly 6,000 copies. His 1989 recording, Soy Gitano, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, became the first album in Spain to be certified gold, with sales of 50,000 copies.

Fans of STEELY DAN and TOTO will be surprised and delighted at the same time. Magnificent AOR / YACHT ROCK from Aschaffenburg, Germany! With the stunning LP release “Natures Melody”, Tramp Records honors Aschaffenburg’s “People” after almost 45 years. The reason why no one has really taken an interest in them so far may be because the original Vinyl records are anything but rare. For the ‘people’ behind Tramp Records, this is absolutely insignificant, it's simply the music what counts. And the songs are so extraordinary that we are proud to set up a special monument to the band with this album.

EARLY MESCALEROS BROADCAST FROM 1999 In the mid- 1990s, following several years fighting a legal dispute with Sony Records, Joe Strummer, now free to record for other labels as a solo-artist, put together The Mescaleros to back himself on future concerts, and with whom he would make new records. Gathering around himself a selection of friends and top-flight musicians, Strummer and the band signed with Mercury Records, and released their first album in 1999, co-written with former Pulp keyboard player Antony Genn, called Rock Art and the X-Ray Style. A tour of England, Europe, and North America soon followed. On 6th November ’99, the band performed at L.A.’s House Of Blues venue, where they performed a dynamic set of new Mescaleros material, rubbing shoulders with a healthy dose of old Clash tunes, plus a couple of rare reggae covers, all of which drove the whole house wild with joy and ecstasy. With the entire proceedings recorded for live FM Radio broadcast, this superb show is now available on this new CD release for the first time.

FLAC (tracks) 24bit-96kHz - 721 MB
36:45 | Indie Folk, R&B, Soft Rock | Label: Secretly Canadian

Faye Webster's songs are direct lines to the human subconscious, and Underdressed at the Symphony documents what happens once you begin to build a new self from the ashes of your old routines. This rebirth isn't flashy or definitive, but is instead a series of seemingly mundane moments that, scattered across weeks and months, sneak their way toward something like healing. Yes, there's a breakup in play, but Webster is not documenting the heartbreak of a breakup so much as she's navigating the contours of heartbreak itself. Recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Texas with her longtime band, Webster is accompanied on Underdressed at the Symphony by Matt Stoessel's arcs of shimmering pedal steel, the plaintive, unhurried drums of Charles Garner, and, occasionally, additional guitarwork from Wilco's Nels Cline. The title of the album refers to Webster's post-breakup compulsion to visit the symphony on a whim, usually buying a ticket at the last possible second.

Mannequin Pussy's music feels like a resilient and galvanizing shout that demands to be heard. Across four albums, the Philadelphia rock band that consists of Colins "Bear" Regisford (bass, vocals), Kaleen Reading (drums, percussion), Maxine Steen (guitar, synths), and Marisa Dabice (guitar, vocals) has made cathartic tunes about despairing times. "There's just so much constantly going on that feels intentionally evil that trying to make something beautiful feels like a radical act," says Dabice. "The ethos of this band has always been to bring people together." Their new album, I Got Heaven, which is out March 1 via Epitaph Records, is the band's most fully realized recording yet.

Ben Frost presents his first studio album in six years, Scope Neglect, via Mute. Available January 11th on limited edition white vinyl, followed by black vinyl, CD, and digital formats on March 1st. In the sonic crucible of Ben Frost's Scope Neglect, music undergoes a metamorphic alchemy. From the album’s opening seconds, the familiar aural chemistry of metal is immediately untethered, isolated in the vacuum, stripped of its cultural trappings and heavy armory, and loaded into a particle accelerator.
