Music played an integral role in 90s popular culture, with the battle of boy vs girl bands as they reached record-breaking fame, the breakthrough of Britpop with its serious debates about whether Blur or Oasis were better and the ultimate power ballads from the likes of Whitney and Sinead O Connor. From cassette tapes to CDs, NOW Music has been there through it all, as the 90s saw the way we listen to music change dramatically. Britpop, Garage, RnB, Boybands, girl groups and more.

Legendary soprano Rosa Ponselle recalled these sessions taped by RCA in her Baltimore home as the only time she enjoyed making records. Fourteen years after her abrupt retirement from opera, her voluptuous instrument (ruby red in the '39 Victors and now tinged with purple) soars to better advantage in the amplitude of her spacious music room than within the cramped confines of the recording studio. Whether in Beethoven, Schubert, Debussy, Mozart, or Tosti songs, or chestnuts like "Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes," the vocalism is always informed by Ponselle's musical intelligence and sense of style. Romophone brings together all the material from these home sessions, including 75 minutes of music not issued by RCA, plus a promotional interview that reveals a warm, down-to-earth persona quite different from your typical diva stereotype. Ponselle fans need no encouragement to acquire this set.

There is a strong argument for calling country music 'white man's blues', but that denies the fact that so many of the best country records were made by females. One of the most famous country songs after all is Stand By Your Man, but don't be misled by the title. These were largely tough, feisty females making their way in a man's world. Decades before the Spice Girls, there was girl power in country music!

One of my favorite bands who albums were great but they really did shine when they hit the stage. I got to see Hot Tuna a few years ago and they still do it. This is like a small capsule of time 65 to 70 when this group shined before they moved into that pop band. Back in these days they were on the edge and at times went over it just enough to delight us. The songs are here but like a great jazz band the "standards" changed with the times and had a life of their own and they would take the songs out for a walk and at times a run. This for me a real treat to hear more of this great band live.

When Stone Temple Pilots returned to the studio in 1994 to record the band's second album, the quartet was facing the high expectations set by its debut Core (1992), which sold more than eight million copies and earned a Grammy® Award. The release of Purple on June 7, 1994 would cement their place as one of the definitive bands of their generation as the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart on its way to selling more than six million copies.

For many, the Christmas holiday season would be incomplete without the resounding drum roll and trumpet fanfare that opens Bach’s “Oratorium auf die Heilige Weynacht” (“Oratorio for the holy Christmas”). Ever since it was first performed by the Thomaskantor between Christmas Day in 1734 and Epiphany 1735 in Leipzig’s two main churches of St. Thomas and St. Nikolai, Bach’s six part musical mas-terpiece has become a cornerstone of the city’s identity and musical heritage. The performance pre-sented here, led by Bach’s 17th successor Gotthold Schwarz together with the Thomanerchor and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, features a lineup of renowned soloists, enabling one to experience the festive grandeur of what many consider the epitome of Christmas music in its original setting.

As a musical term, 'psychobilly' probably dates from the late 1970s and the emergence of bands like the Cramps, who blended punk with '50s rockabilly to create something that was pretty much the musical equivalent of outsider art. Today, however, it's music that prefigured the punks by 15 years that concerns us, a rich seam that's explored on this 2-CD set. Many of these artists were 'one-hit wonders' who never actually had a hit, garage bands that never left the garage, beatniks who didn't like jazz and surfers who never went near an ocean! This is music that was thrashed out by mavericks, misfits and outcasts!

There is so much to savour in this 2CD compilation: Ruth Brown who certainly sparked the whole Atlantic Records topping the R&B Charts with "Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean", Big Mama Thornton's "Hound Dog" a Lieber and Stoller song that spent seven weeks at No.1 on the R&B charts and ultimately inspired a cover version by Elvis Presley that sold many millions, and Maybelle who rocks it, shakes it up and more on Ring Dang Dilly. This collection also includes classic tracks by Irma Thomas, Wynona Carr, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Helen Humes and others.

“Avant garde got soul too” - so opined drummer Charles Moffett with some amount of amusement through a composition title on album for Savoy in 1969. The controversial observation was likely shared if unstated by William Hooker, a generation younger and just getting his start in so-called fire music after an apprenticeship in soul jazz. Light directs an edifying and expansive beam on these efforts, bringing into focus a cache of recordings that trace the drummer’s development from journeyman to self-styled Griot. Adding up to well over four hours of music, the bulk of it is previously unreleased.
