Jonathon was a huge man, very huge according to the people who met him, he also had a huge voice and wide open way of musical thoughts. His roaring theatrical version of "Sympathy For The Devil" made an effect by the time it's release, but couldn't drift the album to make the splatter that he expected and the sales stood in low numbers. That of course means nothing at all, the rest album keeps the high stature, from the opening "In Quest Of Unicorn" to his aspect of the Bee Gees "To Love Somebody" we are tasting some great vocal work, supplemented by musicianship which is practically beyond reproach.

Beginnings is the debut album by the British rock band Ambrose Slade, who later achieved fame as Slade. It was released on 9 May 1969, but failed to enter the charts. In the US, it was released under the title Ballzy. Later in 1975, the album was briefly re-released by Contour as Beginnings of Slade but was quickly withdrawn from sale due to copyright issues. Beginnings is a mixture of self-penned songs and cover versions including two tracks by Steppenwolf. As to confirm the diversity of the group's influences, they also cut Ted Nugent & The Amboy Dukes' "Journey to the Centre of Your Mind", "Ain't Got No Heart" by Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention, The Moody Blues' "Fly Me High", Lennon and McCartney's "Martha My Dear" and "If This World Were Mine" by Marvin Gaye.

One of the more curious acts in the Bay area group scene was a band (or collective) called One, or, more specifically 1, acquaintances of Paul Kantner and Grace Slick from Bolinas. A nine-piece ensemble including two female vocalists, they engaged in lengthy, drifting tunes that drew as much from raga as from rock, with touches of jazz and country. One member, Roger Crissinger, the only semi-known quantity, had previously enjoyed notoriety having been a member of the progressive rock group Pearls Before Swine. But the leader of the group was a mysterious man who didn't always sing so much as vocalise in his own unique way, often without words, who needed words…

Swan Lake was the first of Tchaikovsky's three great ballets– works which added a new level of depth and sophistication to what had been a purely superficial art form. Today the music is so well-known and popular that it's impossible to comprehend the difficulties the composer experienced at early performances. Audiences found the music "too symphonic," and the dancers were put off by the prominence given to the orchestra which, they felt, distracted ballet fans from the action on stage. Of course, all of these supposed "defects" are precisely what we admire about the music today, and this elegant but exciting performance reveals the music in all of its glory.

This vocal quartet originally started life as an extension of jazz band the Hi-Lo’s. From that prominent '50s band came Don Shelton, who decided to form Singers Unlimited after the Hi-Lo’s broke up in 1964. After retreating to Chicago, Illinois, where he worked on a series of television commercials, he enlisted fellow Hi-Lo’s veteran Gene Puerling of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to join him in the city in 1967. The group was formed along with Len Dresslar and Bonnie Herman, with the express intention of recording commercials in the doo wop/vocal group idiom. Shelton’s connections in the industry ensured the group was able to exploit the market successfully, and lucrative work rolled in…

Roger Glover, Ronnie James Dio, Jon Lord, David Coverdale, Tony Ashton, Glenn Hughes, Ray Fenwick, Eddie Hardin, John Lawton, and many many more… Deep Purple have always been known for their contributions to the hard rock genre. Despite this heavy reputation, the individual members have all worked outside the rock field from time to time on solo material or sessions, exploring different and often seemingly unlikely musical avenues. This two-disc set brings two such projects together for the first time…

For almost anyone who's interested enough in the First Class to own a record by them, this 21-track compilation should be enough. Summer Sound Sensations has songs from both of their albums, as well as some non-LP singles, no less than five cuts from their unreleased third album, and a previously unissued 1985 outtake, "Silver Surfer." The big 1974 hit "Beach Baby" is here, of course, and much of the rest of the material also sounds rather like a middle-of-the-road spin on the Beach Boys, with a bit of bubblegum pop and singer/songwriter fare thrown into the mix. There's also a peculiarly nostalgic cast to many of the songs, sometimes quite self-consciously looking back to better and more innocent times.

Jamming With Edward! is a 1972 album released by Rolling Stones Records. The Rolling Stones were recording the Let It Bleed album in 1969. Keith Richards was not part of the sessions while Brian Jones was already bit of a mental scatterbrain and didn't play in a number of songs. While waiting around, they were hanging out with Nicky Hopkins and Ry Cooder, leading to producer and engineer Glyn Johns to record them. This was released before the Stones finished up Exile On Main St.. This pressing was released in 1995 when Rolling Stones Records was distributed through Virgin.

With their recording contract with CBS now over, Titanic moved to the rather smaller Barclay records for the release of their fifth studio album in 1977. Once again, the line up was to alter significantly, with John Williamson and Andrew Poulton both departing. Back came John Lorck on drums, to be joined by the wonderfully named bassist Saintclair Brunet. More significantly though, the line up once again boasted a keyboard player in Claude Chamboissier. While the album displays some of the pop rock traits which hampered the disappointing "Ballad of a rock 'n' roll loser", it does at least see the band attempting to turn the clock back towards their fine early albums. The opening "Blue train" is a pleasant but largely prosaic piece of guitar rock…

Light plays Art-Rock with influences of Ekseption and Nice and integrates jazzy brass elements like Colosseum and Latin-American percussion work similar to Santana. Light were formed in the town of Gouda in the 1960s and toured through the provinces of the Netherlands in the late 60s. The band members were Adri Vergeer (piano, organ, mellotron, keyboards, vocals), Gerard Steenbergen (acoustic guitar), Joop Slootjes (bass), Hans de Bruin (saxophone, flute) and Sjaco van der Speld (drums, vocals). Eddy Barclay brought the band - then called "Light Formation" - to the attention of producer Bert Schouten. In 1972 "The Story of Moses" was published, having been recorded at Phonogram Studio in Hilversum…

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. A set of folk songs, but handled in a way that isn't folksy at all – thanks to the lyrical genius of Spanish pianist Tete Montoliu! The music here has sources in older tunes from Catalonia – as you'd guess from the title – but Tete's handling of the material is all jazz, all the way through – with a rich amount of solo introspection that really moves the tunes past their simple melodies, in ways that are even more expansive than some of the Scandinavian 60s experiments with folk and jazz! The album's also perhaps one of Montoliu's best-remembered of the 70s – a date that circulated strongly, thanks to Tete's incomparable solo performance throughout – very expressive, but never overdone.

Released as a private edition of only 200 copies in 1977 on the 'Joint' label (but recorded two years earlier, in 1975), Warlus 'Songs' could be regarded as the king of all French 70s obscure private pressings. Warlus was the brainchild of young musician Richard Maubert, who created a mini- masterpiece of twisted, melancholic fuzzed- out psychedelic- pop, with a charming homemade sound/ production and druggy atmosphere. Sung in English, it also brings to mind some obscure USA private pressings like Kath. This is a very special record that will appeal to both psych afficionados and fans of 70s DIY weirdness. If you like other French private pressings like Dandelion and Les Temps Heureux, you'll be amazed when you hear Warlus…

Art's Break! captured the legendary drummer and bandleader Art Blakey and his Messengers in Oslo and Tunis in 1969. This version of the Jazz Messengers consisted of Bill Hardman on trumpet, David Schnitter on tenor sax, Mickey Tucker on piano and Cameron Brown on bass. At least that's the information provided by Joker, the original European label who released this material. However, there are some questions regarding the accuracy of this information. The Japanese annotator for this release notes that if the listed personnel is correct these performances must have been recorded in the mid 1970s. Some also claim that the trumpeter is Woody Shaw and the (soprano) sax player is Carter Jefferson.
