It's always fascinating to go back in time and re-discover the origins of a genre-defining band, especially one that has been as influential as Within Temptation. Originally released in 1997, the stripped down and dark/gothic doom of Enter stands in stark contrast to the polished and catchy Hydra, their latest studio release out earlier this year. And while Enter was previously reissued in 2007 along with the 1998 EP The Dance, Nuclear Blast - perhaps in light of the recent success of Hydra - decided to make these more obscure and out of print titles once again available for new (and old I suppose) fans of the band…

Alvin Lee died in 2013 but he left behind an incredible amount of rock'n'roll. These six albums were originally released between 1973 and 1998, released on an assortment of record labels. This batch of CD reissues were released in 2014 and 2015 by Rainman Records. The bonus songs that are featured on some of the discs are the same released by Repertoire Records, so they may be the same mastering.

Emiliano looks at his life with the eyes of a film director, mixing the objective reality with the processes of the artistic creation. The story he is filming flounders with his daily life, until his world is trapped in the lens of his camera. Confused, always alone and in front of a screen, now become a transfigured reality, but at the same time a measurable, controllable and manipulable one, he listens in loop to a song: one of those songs you sing or repeat as a prayer and forcing you to remember, believe and convince yourself.

Excellent Monk concert from his well-documented 1961 European Tour. The sound is very good and Monk is in very good form. The bonus tracks were recorded for TV in Bussum; April 1961. There is a low quality video copy of part of this that circulates among collectors, but it is nice to have it in a much more complete audio format as presented here. Huge thanks to the Dutch Archives for releasing this vintage Monk!

The first-ever single-disc anthology of Queen drummer Roger Taylor's solo material, 2014's Best brings together tracks off all five of his studio albums. The collection follows-up the more exhaustive 2013 box-set, The Lot, and features cuts from 1981's Fun in Space, 1984's Strange Frontier, 1994's Happiness?, 1998's Electric Fire, and 2013's Fun on Earth. While primarily known for his commanding drum presence with Queen, Taylor is also a strong rock singer and talented songwriter, responsible for penning such Queen hits as "Radio Ga Ga," "Breakthru," "These Are the Days of Our Lives," and others. Vocally, Taylor has a throatier, more gravelly presence on the microphone than Queen's highly resonant, operatic frontman Freddie Mercury. In that sense, he often brings to mind the sound of such similarly inclined contemporaries as the Who's Roger Daltrey, Mott the Hoople's Ian Hunter, and Deep Purple's Ian Gillan. Perhaps not surprisingly, many of the cuts here sound like they could easily have ended up on a Queen album, and tracks like "Let’s Get Crazy," "Man on Fire," and "Strange Frontier" showcase the same synth-driven, pop/rock approach Queen was championing in the '80s.
Samuil Feinberg - Alexander Scriabin: Mazurkas, Opp. 3 & 25 (2014) [Re-Up]

Firma Melodiya presents an album of mazurkas composed by Alexander Scriabin and performed by Samuil Feinberg. Samuil Feinberg’s artistic career was a remarkable phenomenon of 20th century domestic music life. A pianist, distinctive composer and educator who created his own performing school, he showed his worth in each of these roles, being notable for the integrity of his personality and creative aspirations. The musician’s performing interests were truly grandiose, but as a composer and performer, Feinberg was close to Scriabin and to the feel of his music. When the author of 'The Poem of Ecstasy' heard young Feinberg play, he fully appreciated his pianistic art. Samuil Feinberg’s repertoire included all piano sonatas and most of the small scale compositions by Scriabin. These recordings of nineteen mazurkas, Op.3 and Op.25, from Scriabin’s early period were made in the 1950s.

Khatia Buniatishvili’s third album, Motherland, a highly personal and intimate collection of solo piano works. With enchanting piano pieces by a number of composers, from Bach to Debussy, and Dvořák to Pärt, this album is in perfect contrast to the fire and power of Khatia’s first album, devoted to Lizst, and the brilliance of her second album, devoted to Chopin. The album is particularly special as it’s devoted to Khatia’s mother, Natalie Buniatishvili, and it will be a perfect addition to your collection of Khatia’s recordings.
