After playing a major role in five positively classic heavy metal albums of the late '70s and early '80s (three with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and two with Black Sabbath), it seemed that singer Ronnie James Dio could truly do no wrong. So it wasn't all that surprising – impressive, but not surprising – when he struck gold yet again when launching his solo vehicle, Dio, via 1983's terrific Holy Diver album. Much like those two, hallowed Sabbath LPs, Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules, Holy Diver opened at full metallic throttle with the frenetic "Stand Up and Shout," before settling into a dark, deliberate, and hypnotic groove for the timelessly epic title track – a worthy successor to glorious triumphs past like Rainbow's "Stargazer" and the Sabs' "Sign of the Southern Cross."

This DVD is a new production of the Puccini favourite, staged at Salzburg 2012.Tenor Piotr Beczala rocks as Rodolfo, Mimì’s lover. Massimo Cavalletti sings Rodolfo’s friend Marcello with uncommon finesse and beauty of tone. Nino Machaidze is a moving Musetta.The robust orchestration of this popular opera verges on the ethereal as Mimì’s life slips away. Throughout his reading, conductor Daniele Gatti strikes the perfect balance between sentiment and sentimentality, vigour and fragility, the specter of untimely death and the quick and young it haunts. The New York Times wrote, “You don’t often hear Mimì sung with such vivid character and sheer charisma.”

Real masterpieces of music always leave the handwriting of the artist. The musician Roland Schmidt who lives in Lübeck, Germany, achieved this already with his debut album. Now, five albums later, the tradition is being continued with “Universal Flow”. It sounds like Faber instantly. The musician adventures sound technical experiments and interrupts his album with different moods which only unfold in combination with traditional electronic music. Catchy melody patterns repeat unremarkably during the runtime of the album and fuse all together. Faber’s music hopefully never grows up which is fully appreciated.

“Dangerous” Dan Toler—who played with The Allman Brothers Band from 1978-82, participated in the band’s 1986 reunion shows and toured with both Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts—is currently suffering from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. But the noted guitarist has mustered the energy to record a new studio album with The Toler Tucci Band, Doc’s Hideaway which is set for release on November 6 via Magnolia Records. In addition to Toler and band co-namesake Doc Tucci, the group features The Platters singer Verceal Whitaker, keyboardist Jake Hansen, bassist Harry DeBusk, percussionist Mike Tucci and Gregg Allman Band percussionist Chaz Trippy.

On this album, jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli pays simultaneous tribute to the pop music of his adolescence (Steely Dan, Billy Joel, the Allman Brothers, Elvis Costello) and the jazz tradition in which he, as a member of the celebrated Pizzarelli dynasty, was steeped from his earliest years. The album title refers to the fact that the program takes classic pop songs and puts them in jazz settings: thus you'll hear a cool bossa nova arrangement of Joni Mitchell's "Free Man in Paris," a completely natural lounge-lizard setting of Tom Waits' "Drunk on the Moon," and a hard-swinging, boppish version of James Taylor's "Traffic Jam" that sounds like it was written for the Manhattan Transfer and incorporates the Joe Henderson composition "The Kicker."

Psycho Praxis are a near perfect sound mélange of British heavy prog and Italian progressive rock. Hailing from Brescia the band's debut album "Echoes from the Deep" doesn't sound like a new band trying to cash in on retro-prog, rather, it sounds like an authentic lost album from the early 70s with quality thrills and chills. Imagine the slightly creepy and unpredictable edge of Van der Graaf Generator mixed with the whirling, feverish flutes of Osanna, and the keyboard textures of Metamorfosi. The band employ English vocals rather than Italian, but even the hardest core RPI fan will surely forgive them because the music is so good.

Driving Towards the Daylight is the tenth studio album by blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa, released on May 22, 2012. Recorded at The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, CA and Studio at the Palms in Las Vegas, NV, Driving Towards the Daylight is a balanced and "back-to-basics album that highlights Bonamassa’s signature style of blues, roots, and rock & roll". Driving Towards the Daylight was produced by Kevin "Caveman" Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin), making this Bonamassa and Shirley's seventh album collaboration in six years. The album debuted at number 2 in the UK. This constitutes the highest performance to date of a Joe Bonamassa album on a non-blues- or rock-specific chart. In Canada, the album debuted at number 55. In the U.S. the album debuted at number 1 on the Blues albums chart and number 23 on the Billboard 200.

This Requiem is known in five sources; two of them mention no composer, two attribute it to Antoine de Févin, one, the Occo Codex, to Antoine Divitis. It is recorded here in the version transmitted by an early sixteenth-century manuscript, the Occo Codex, a sumptuous, richly illuminated volume. The book was originally intended for use in worship at one of the oldest churches in Amsterdam, built in the fourteenth century on the site of a miracle which played a fundamental role in constituting the religious identity of Amsterdam. Occo was the name of the rich merchant who financed the production of the manuscript.

Genre: Blues, Country Blues | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: DixieFrog Records (DFGCD 8720)

Eric Bibb's version of the blues is calm, wise, hushed, and elegant, as much or more about redemption as it is about despair, and above all, Bibb sees the blues as narrative, part of the story we all drift through. His best songs, often built on traditional patterns and rhythms, are wise and affirming, and they fall to the brighter and more hopeful side of the blues. There are several such gems on Deeper in the Well, including the opening track, a delightful piece of Louisiana shuffle funk called "Bayou Belle," the string band gospel bounce of "Dig a Little Deeper in the Well," a modal and relentlessly driving "Boll Weevil," "Sittin' in a Hotel Room," which is a wise and hopeful story of contentment, and the final track, a stunningly beautiful banjo version of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are a-Changin'." It all adds up to a beautifully redemptive album, one of Bibb's best.

The 1995 single "Born Slippery" was the track that pushed them into public consciousness, where they have remained ever since. Although not the most prolific of bands these days, Underworld refuse to remain stagnant and are constantly changing their musical template, recreating and updating their sound with every release. With that being said, their catalog remains timeless…

The seminal San Francisco psychedelic band in the heyday of such things, Jefferson Airplane were sassy, political, and generally engaging. The band then morphed into Jefferson Starship, which was a whole other thing, a more polished band aiming at the pop charts. Eventually Jefferson Starship became just Starship, although the sound stayed aimed at the charts. This two-disc set combines the best tracks from all of these incarnations, which is a good thing if one is a fan of all of the approaches here, but not such a good thing if, like many, one prefers one version of the band to the other two. Either way, it's nice to have a survey of the Jefferson family tree in one spot, and songs (no matter which version of this outfit did them) like "Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit," "Volunteers," "Ride the Tiger," the beautiful "Miracles," "Count on Me"…
