Fascinating Broadcast Recording From The Legendary Time Fades Away Tour Comprising Jack Nitzsche, Ben Keith, Tim Drummond and Kenny Buttrey, The Stray Gators had backed Neil Young on 1972 s Harvest, and would go on to do likewise on the tour during which its follow-up, Times Fade Away, was recorded live. Featuring previously unreleased cuts, until 2017 TFA remained the only Young album not released on CD, despite critical acclaim from most quarters. What would later become known as the Time Fades Away Tour began on 4th January 73 in Madison, Wisconsin; it was fraught from start to finish. Young would later describe it as one of the unhappiest times of his life and the worst tour of his career.

The Master and the Musician is the title of the first entirely instrumental album by guitarist Phil Keaggy, released in 1978, on NewSong Records. It was later reissued, with a bonus track, on Myrrh Records in 1989. Phil Keaggy's first instrumental album is a groundbreaking piece of work for him as an artist, for the Christian music genre, and for instrumental guitar music in general. Full of emotional twists, meditative sounds, and world-influenced tonalities, The Master & the Musician stands as an oasis in an otherwise barren field of Christian instrumental music. Pieces like "Jungle Pleasures" and "Follow Me Up" are great works in their own right, Christian or otherwise. An excellent work from an excellent musician. Strobie's 2007, 30th Anniversary Edition included a 29-track bonus disc.

The unreleased solo acoustic album recorded in 1976, which includes includes solo, acoustic songs recorded in 1976 at the Indigo Ranch Studios in Malibu, California and featuring 2 previously unreleased songs! Although Hitchhiker isn't Neil Young's first abandoned album to be unearthed later, it's certainly his most realized — impressive, given these songs were recorded quickly in a single session in 1976. Armed with only an acoustic guitar and harmonica (and a studio piano for "The Old Country Waltz"), Young left the studio that evening having recorded some of his strongest songs to date; he envisioned the lo-fi recording to be released as is before Reprise, his record label, flat-out objected.

Label: Soundway Records

Après Buraka Sound Sistem ou Batida, l’axe Luanda-Lisbonne n’en finit pas de nous étonner par son apport essentiel à la définition de la musique afro futuriste. Elevé dans le ghetto de Cazenga dans la capitale angolaise, le chanteur du déjà remarqué Throes +The Shine, groupe pour lequel il a inventé la parlante expression de kudurock et collaboré avec le Congolais Pierre Kwenders, sort son premier album solo. Pour Alone, Diron Animal a produit une synthèse magique dans laquelle les rythmes de son pays, kuduro et semba en tête, assimilent fièrement des influences venues de la house, l’afro beat, le hip hop, l’électro, le coupé-décalé ou le funk. Diaboliquement dansant, le propos n’en est pas moins conscient et concerné. En portugais, kimbundu ou anglais, Diron Animal décrit les sentiments contrastés, violents, ambitieux, pessimistes ou plein d’espoir qui traversent son ghetto, tout en vantant sa créativité. Sur NCrazy, il invite le fameux rappeur Spoek Mathambo, emblématique de la révolutionnaire scène sud-africaine, histoire d’appuyer le constat que le futur de la musique urbaine se dessine en Afrique.

Folk, Americana, Singer-Songwriter | Label: Fluff and Gravy

The songs on the new album, One Go Around, the 3rd full-length from Portland based songwriter Jeffrey Martin come from an intense whirlwind of activity in his life, as he balanced full-time work as a high-school creative writing teacher with a touring schedule that saw him flying out for gigs on the weekend and grading papers on the plane home. Martin's since quit teaching to become a full-time musician, but the stories he heard from his students when he was teaching and the stories he gathered on the road have stayed with him. The stories hit hard, because we know we may not be far off from them ourselves in this time of uncertainty. Jeffrey Martin has become known as a writer that other artists turn to for inspiration.

Folk, Singer-Songwriter | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:43:16 | 102 MB
Label: Blue Limestone

The recording represents a deepening of the approach Baker has pursued since his 2004 debut album Mercy: lyrics pared down to their essence set against the spare backdrop of folk-rock instruments used in a chamber-music way. But there are a few new twists as well. Working in Nashville for the first time with producer Neilson Hubbard, Baker uses the 50s-jazz trumpet playing of Don Mitchell and the sustained guitar textures of Will Kimbrough (producer/guitarist for Rodney Crowell and Todd Snider) to frame the lyrics with a kind of chamber-music folk-rock and to break up the ten vocal numbers with five cinematic-sounding instrumental interludes.

Digitally remastered edition. Look At The Fool, the ninth and final studio album to be released by Tim Buckley in his lifetime (the album was released in November 1974, and Buckley was to die from a drug overdose on 29th June 1975, aged only 28), is seen by some as the last in a trio of 'sex-funk' releases. He'd begun this trilogy with Greetings From LA in 1972. He followed Greetings with Sefronia and the last album in his deal with DiscReet, the label owned by his manager, Herb Cohen, was this - Look At The Fool. The album has been remastered from the original tapes by Dave Schultz in 2017, and the booklet features the lyrics and new annotation.
