Reissue features the latest digital remastering and the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest DSD / HR Cutting remastering. Comes with a description. Features the original LP designs. A pretty great live set by Billy Taylor and his early trio with Earl May on bass and Percy Brice on drums – recorded at Town Hall in 1954! Taylor is actually pretty darn amazing on the set – very much the virtuoso, playing with an incredible range and an almost modern approach to the tunes – one that seems looser, and more expressive than some of his previous studio sessions for Prestige Records – in a way that makes this album a gem well worth seeking out! Titles include "Theodora", "A Foggy Day", "How High The Moon", and "I'll Remember April".

Somehow, in the flurry of recordings that the Beach Boys made during the mid-'60s, the band found time to issue an entire album of Christmas songs, nearly half of them originals written by Brian Wilson. Released in October of 1964, The Beach Boys' Christmas Album remains one of the few holiday recordings that merits serious discussion as an album of new work, even warranting an expanded reissue with bonus cuts in 1991. However, that original work is beyond the scope of this review.

How We Live was formed in 1985 by vocalist and keyboard player Steve Hogarth (Marillion) and guitarist Colin Woore in 1985. Both musicians had previously been in the New Wave band The Europeans. Signing to the CBS imprint Portrait Records, “Dry Land” was the band’s sole album. Issued in 1987, the album was a fine collection of melodic and imaginative rock music that, despite featuring some excellent songs, somehow failed to make any commercial headway. By 1988 a disillusioned Steve Hogarth was considering abandoning music when he was invited to replace Fish as vocalist in the Progressive Rock band Marillion, where he reached a wider audience. The song “Dry Land” would later be recorded by Marillion on their album “Holidays in Eden” and was also a Top 40 hit when released as a single.

Louis Johnson (April 13, 1955 – May 21, 2015) was an American bass guitarist. Johnson was best known for his group The Brothers Johnson and his session playing on several hit albums of the 1970s and 1980s including the "best selling album of all time" Thriller. His signature sound came from the Music Man StingRay bass guitar, which Leo Fender made for him, and from his slapping technique. He is ranked number 38 on Bass Player magazine's list of "The 100 Greatest Bass Players of All Time".

A previously unreleased live set recorded at London’s legendary Town and Country club and available for the first time on this two CD set. By the late 80s years of substance abuse had left Gil Scott-Heron rotten-toothed and out of it a lot of the time. In 1987 he missed a gig at London's Town & Country Club completely, turning up long after the venue had shut. The T&CC stuck with him though, booking him again in 1988 and hoping for the best. By then he'd gained a new manager, Freddie Cousaert, who had been responsible for turning the career of Marvin Gaye round in the early 80s, getting him off cocaine and back into the studio.
