The debut album by John Foxx And The Maths will be released by Metamatic Records on 21st March, 2011. Interplay is a collaboration between John Foxx and electronic composer and synthesizer collector, Benge (Ben Edwards). He's best known for his 2008 album, Twenty Systems which was described by Brian Eno as 'a brilliant contribution to the archaeology of electronic music.' The album will initially be available as a Deluxe Digipack limited to 1500 copies, designed by Jonathan Barnbrook whose previous work includes David Bowie's Heathen and Reality albums. Moody and atmospheric, but also full of songs that are actually more pop than avant garde, Interplay pulls various strands of electronic music together from early 80s electro to 70s Krautrock, even flashes of Cabaret Voltaire and Foxx s first band, Ultravox!

Compilation released by Mushroom Records in 1993 consisting of artists signed to them - the majority of these tunes are from the 1980s and this release is a great starting point for people who wish to explore the Top 40 scene in Australia in the 70s and 80s. It also contains Kylie Minogue's first ever single (a cover of "Locomotion").

Tribute albums are always a hit and miss affair. Sadly this latest Pink Floyd tribute album falls mostly in the miss area.The majority of the songs on offer are little more than low quality carbon copies of the originals with little to no creative interpretations added. There is a wide range of Pink Floyd songs covered in the album. Songs span from Pink Floyd’s hits such as Money covered by The Pineapple Thief to more obscure tunes such as The Nile Song (from the soundtrack to the film More) covered by The Panthers and Meddle’s Fearless covered by Low. Unfortunately in each case the songs are so similar to the original versions that they sound like they were performed by a Pink Floyd cover band. And in the case of Shine on you crazy diamond covered by the Australian Pink Floyd Show, it actually was performed by a cover band. As a result the album becomes rather dull and pointless and providing no reason to listen to it instead of listening to Pink Floyd playing their music.

Jazz / Cool / Bop / Swing

This double LP was the first jazz concert ever recorded at the Hollywood Bowl (and only the second one held at that L.A. institution). Although not an official Jazz at the Philharmonic concert, it has the same basic format and was also produced by Norman Granz. Trumpeters Roy Eldridge and Harry "Sweets" Edison, tenors Flip Phillips and Illinois Jacquet, the Oscar Peterson Trio and drummer Buddy Rich all jam on "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Jumpin' at the Woodside" and there is also a ballad medley and a drum solo by Rich. In addition the Oscar Peterson Trio plays two numbers, the remarkable pianist Art Tatum (in one of his final appearances) has four, Ella Fitzgerald sings six songs (including a scat-filled "Airmail Special") and collaborates with Louis Armstrong on two others. For the grand finale nearly everyone returns to the stage for "When the Saints Go Marching In" which Armstrong sings and largely narrates, cheerfully introducing all of the participants. This is a historic and very enjoyable release featuring more than its share of classic greats.

Rhythm & Blues / Soul / Jazz / Early R&B / Soul Jazz

This four-CD, 100-song set is the best representative body of work ever assembled (or ever likely to be assembled) of the R&B and soul releases from Henry "Juggy Murray" Jones' Sue Records. The range of sounds runs the gamut from ex-Drifter Bobby Hendricks' first hit for the company ("Itchy Twitchy Feeling") in 1959, through the string of hits by Ike & Tina Turner, to the company's last hits some seven years later. Not only is every chart single that the label ever had represented, but so are club hits from the mid-'60s and solo sides by uniquely New York-associated figures. The contents of the box are almost ideal, along with their arrangement – in contrast some other box sets, this one follows strict release order, which is a great way to follow the history of the label (though not ideal for anyone, apart from owners of multi-disc players, who simply wants to hear the label's best-known tracks in one sitting).

This second volume of the Guide to Musical Instruments explores the history of musical instruments in the period from 1800 to 1950. Its purpose is both to discuss improvements and transformations of instruments dating from before 1800 and to investigate all the novelties thought up by instrument makers during this era. All these developments took place in a context in which the process of instrument making moved from artisans’ workshops to commercial firms which became veritable factories, typical of the ‘age of industrialisation’. The majority of the musical examples are recordings of individual instruments that allow us to hear timbres often lost under the weight of the orchestral mass.This second volume of the Guide follows the same principles as the first.

Blues / Traditional Blues / Delta Blues / Electric Blues / Memphis Blues

If you love the Blues, these sets provide some of the greatest songs all in one collection. You need these in your collection. It's very hard to characterize "Memphis blues," even though all blues started at Memphis. This is more delta blues, but still a good collection. Some of what we call "Chicago blues" is more of "toned up" Memphis blues. Not so much of that here, and it should've been included. Old school Blues with a large selection of music and great artist,enjoyed it.
