Load is the sixth studio album by Metallica. It sold 680,000 units in its first week, making it the biggest opening week for Metallica and the biggest debut of 1996. Load debuted and spent four consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. It was certified 5× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipping five million copies in the United States. The album showed more of a hard rock side of Metallica than the band's typical thrash metal, which upset their fans. It also featured influences from genres such as Southern rock, blues rock, country rock and alternative rock.

On August 9, 1995, KISS performed on MTV Unplugged in what fans consider the beginning of the eventual KISS Reunion. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons contacted former members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley and invited them to participate in the event. Fan reaction to Criss and Frehley at the Unplugged show was so positive that, in 1996, the original lineup of KISS reunited, with all four original members together for the first time since 1980.

Pee Wee had one of the most distinctive sounds in jazz music and is one of the giants of classical jazz - who played distinctively within classical genres, but also ventured into modern jazz. The almost ethereal sound of his clarinet - woody, tart and lyrical - is a revelation.

Albedo 0.39 is a studio album by the Greek electronic composer Vangelis, released in 1976. It was the second album produced by Vangelis in Nemo Studios, London, which was his creative base until the late 1980s. It was his first Top 20 UK album. It is a concept album themed around space physics (the reflection of light i.e. physical truth). Its title is inspired by the idea of a planet's albedo, the proportion of the light it receives that is reflected back into space. The album title refers to the average albedo value of the planet Earth as it was in 1976. From the explanation on the back of the LP cover : "The reflecting power of a planet or other non-luminous body. A perfect reflector would have an Albedo of 100%. The Earth's Albedo is 39%, or 0.39". It was performed at the Royal Albert Hall in 1977. The album reached #18 on the UK Album Charts.

Berlin-based pianist Julia Hülsmann returns to the trio format for Sooner And Later, an album which distils the experience of journeys to distant destinations. In the last couple of years Hülsmann, bassist Marc Muellbauer and drummer Heinrich Köbberling have taken their music around the world, from Europe to the North & South America, Central Asia and China, where something special developed. Once again all three members of the trio have contributed compositions to the album. The title of Hulsmann's Thatpujai is an anagram of Jutta Hipp, and its theme is comprised of phrases from the late German jazz pianist's solos. The program is rounded out by a cover of Radiohead's All I Need which, like the Hülsmann-penned tracks J.J., Soon or Mond with their sometimes almost clubby grooves, emphasizes the subtle rhythmic aspects of the trio's music.
