Andreas Vollenweider's Book of Roses marries concept to contemporary instrumentalism, and blends the music of numerous cultures into the composer's already worldly sound. Separated into four chapters (where each song is an "episode"), the album chronicles the journey of a young girl from dances in grand ballrooms, through mysterious woods full of magical jugglers, to an eventual meeting with the Sphinx. In between there are numerous other adventures, each punctuated by some of the most ambitious music of Vollenweider's career. His trademark electric harp is still here, and the flair for sweeping arrangement is intact. But the straightforward pop-jazz of "In Doga Gamee" (complete with lyrics) suggests Soul Cages-era Sting, while "In the Woods of Kroandal" marries a romantic classical swell to flamenco guitar and nature sounds…

A terrific and comprehensive overview of Ratt's entire career, Ratt & Roll 8191 contains 19 tracks, including all of the group's hits ("Round and Round," "Wanted Man," "Lay It Down," "You're in Love," "Dance," "Way Cool Jr."), as well as all the best album tracks from their frequently uneven records. In other words, it's a definitive package, containing everything that anyone but hardcore fans could ever need.

By no means the first (or last) ever Slade hits collection, Wall of Hits is nevertheless the only one you truly need, a solid roundup of every British Top Ten smash the band ever scored, plus a smattering of lesser-rated (but equally deserving) Top 20 entries, and only one track – 1991's "Universe" – that really doesn't belong. Neither has time taken any toll on the quality of the music. Whether causing roaring traffic to grind to a halt or bearing their souls in a ballad, the members of Slade not only made great records, they also tapped emotions – wild and wacky, reflective and raw – that make fans never tire of singing their songs.

Definitely one of the more obscure official releases in The Kinks' discography, these days this EP is not talked about much when it comes to the band. Anyway, what we have here are late period Kinks and they not really doing anything too special. "Did Ya" is a great song and was a single they put out from this EP but it didn't really go anywhere. "Gotta Move" is a live version of a 64 Kinks song, "Days" is a re-recording of a Kinks song from 1968, "New World" and "Look Through Any Doorway" are new songs.

Originally released in 1991, 'Holidays in Eden' was Marillion's sixth studio album and second with Steve Hogarth on lead vocals. Their previous album and first with Hogarth, 'Season's End' (1989), was written fairly quickly, leaning on a large amount of material already being written prior to Hogarth's arrival. 'Holidays in Eden' brought about a different challenge to the band's new line-up, having to start from scratch with this new dynamic, which they talk about extensively within the book and documentary in the 3CD/Blu-ray deluxe edition.

Ordinary Average Guy is the ninth solo studio album by the American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joe Walsh. The album was released in mid 1991. It was Walsh's first album of entirely new music since Got Any Gum? in 1987, and his first solo album to be issued internationally by Epic following a four-year alliance with Warner Bros. Records in the United States and Canada. The album features Ringo Starr, Survivor's lead vocalist Jimi Jamison, and the drummer Joe Vitale from Walsh's former band Barnstorm. Vitale also sings the lead vocals on the final track of the album, "School Days".

In early 1991 an album by an '80s artist was welcomed like a Bryan Ferry album in the time of punk. Brucken is one of those enigmas who records sporadically. Love is her only solo effort. Due to Pascal Gabriel's modern dance production, the album holds up well even years after its release and is a much lighter listen than the Edgar Allan Poe- inspired Propaganda. Nine tracks are anticipated by the sensual shade of the "State of Independence" shadow, "Kiss Like Ether." At times Gabriel's programmed beats border on overbearing, so Steve Nye adds a touch of liveliness on three pieces, culminating in the memorable "Always." The upbeat disco "Suicide" and the dramatic "Surprise" are also notable.
Cherry Red's expanded reissue includes the original album plus 10 bonus tracks covering all the singles, B-sides and remixes of the era.

The versatile British combo Byzantium made a run at mainstream success in the front half of the 1970s, releasing a trio of eclectic albums that endeared them to critics, but befuddled both the masses and the band's record label. In retrospect, the group's blend of psychedelia, progressive rock, country-rock, and West Coast pop perhaps predestined the cult status that time eventually bestowed upon them. Featuring a multi-headed staff of talented songwriters and with instrumental prowess to match, Byzantium were a vigorous live band with a strong vocal presence and plenty of technical flair that could be heard in their ambitious arrangements.

When Xymox was known as the Clan of Xymox in the mid-'80s, the Amsterdam group's Euro-gothic music was very underground. But things were different in the early '90s, when Xymox was making an effort to escape its obscurity and be more commercial. There were those who labeled Phoenix as the work of a band that had sold out, but while eerie, high-tech tunes such as "Smile Like Heaven," "Written in the Stars," and "Mark the Days" are slicker and more pop-minded than Xymox's mid-'80s work, they're far from bad. The gloominess and overtly European qualities that had characterized early Xymox remained, though Xymox was definitely thinking in terms of the pop/rock audience. Phoenix may not be the most original CD in the world, but that doesn't prevent it from being consistently enjoyable.

Pastorius was best known as the flamboyant bassist in Weather Report (1976-81), the man who would throw talcum powder on the stage so he could slide-shuffle on one foot while playing a driving samba riff. But as this extraordinary 1976 debut shows, he was a musical star long before international celebrity called. Though often dismissed as a fusion player, he was championing bebop ("Donna Lee") just as fusion was in its first flush of juvenile excess. He was no purist though, and one of the joys of this album is the range of music he covers, from jazz to soul to samba to afro-beat, giving it all his unmistakable signature. Virtuosity, a dirty word in some circles, was never abused in Jaco's hands. The brilliant playing on such as "Kuru" and "Portrait Of Tracy" is all in the service of musicality, and became a benchmark for a generation of bass players.

Georgie Fame's swinging, surprisingly credible blend of jazz and American R&B earned him a substantial following in his native U.K., where he scored three number one singles during the '60s. Fame played piano and organ in addition to singing, and was influenced by the likes of Mose Allison, Booker T. & the MG's, and Louis Jordan. Early in his career, he also peppered his repertoire with Jamaican ska and bluebeat tunes, helping to popularize that genre in England; during his later years, he was one of the few jazz singers of any stripe to take an interest in the vanishing art of vocalese, and earned much general respect from jazz critics on both sides of the Atlantic.

A separate entity from the Ian Gillan Band and distinct from Ian Gillan the solo artist, Gillan was a band bearing the ex-Deep Purple frontman's name which provided an outlet for his straight-ahead hard rock inclinations (as opposed to the prog rock tendencies of the Ian Gillan Band or Ian Gillan's more polished solo material of the 1990s). Gillan the singer put the band together in 1978, initially recruiting Steve Byrd (guitar), John McCoy (bass), Colin Towns (keyboards, ex-Ian Gillan Band), and Pete Barnacle (drums); this lineup proved short-lived, recording a self-titled Japanese-only album before disintegrating. Bernie Torme replaced Byrd, and Mick Underwood took over for Barnacle; this shift resulted in 1979's Mr. Universe, a surprise U.K. hit album.

They represented Italy in the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest with a song called Raggio di luna. Their major hits were Solo tu (1978), Vacanze Romane (1982) and Ti Sento (1985), which peaked the charts in Belgium and Italy.
