Stephen Richard "Steve" Hackett is an English musician, songwriter and singer. He gained prominence as lead guitarist of the British progressive rock group Genesis, which he joined in 1970 and left in 1977 to pursue a solo career. This newest album has been described by Hackett himself as his best work. His impressive and varied solo career has now entered its 40th year and covered various genres from blues to classical, as well as a significant number of albums widely regarded by many as bone-fide prog rock classics, so this is no small boast. Happily, it turns out to be exactly right.

The soundtrack to Frank Zappa's strange early-'70s film 200 Motels was always doomed to be a peripheral entry in his discography. The movie's story was not easy to follow, and neither is the record (not that plot was ever a big focus of the production). It's typically wacky Zappa of the era, with unpredictable sharp turns between crunchy rock bombast, orchestration, and jazz/classical influences, as well as interjections of wacky spoken dialogue. Those who like his late-'60s/early-'70s work – not as song-oriented as his first albums, in other words, but not as "serious" or as silly as his later records – will probably like this fine, although it's not up to the level of Uncle Meat.

The rumors of retirement weren't true. While it's nearly impossible to keep anything a secret in the 21st century, David Bowie managed to accomplish the feat, recording The Next Day during a period many believed he had sung his last note. Once you hear the album, Bowie's first in ten years and 30th studio effort of his career, you'll be thankful he's come back for more.

FilePost, FileFactory | Jazz Rock, Psychedelia, Progressive Rock | 1970 UK LP | Deram SML 1050

This music is probably the great-grand-daddy of today's avant garde progressive music. It is an eclectic blend of psychedelia, jazz, blues, folk, celtic, eastern, and various forms of world music. Instruments include bass, flute, tenor and alto sax, trumpet, drums and guitar. Keyboards are largely dispensed with in favour of Dave Arbus's electric violin which provides plenty of texture and background, as well as taking the lead in many passages. There are long sections driven by a jazzy bass guitar playing with almost loop-like repetition, while solo spots are taken in turn by guitar, violin, flute and sax, vocals are sparse.

Released in the same year as In the Court of the Crimson King, Mercator Projected marks the debut of one of the most exciting, authentically progressive acts of the original prog era, now unfairly forgotten by most. Drenched in exoticism, from the stunning cover,to the evocative title (a Mercator projection is a cylindrical map projection that distorts the shape and size of large objects), in spite of its undeniable rawness, the album is a thoroughly exhilarating listen, blending Eastern sounds with jazz, blues, heavy rock and psychedelia in a heady brew that might at first sound dated, but is still deeply intriguing for a discerning music fan.

I Asked for Water, She Gave Me…Gasoline is the second album of (mostly) acoustic blues stylings from Tony McPhee and some talented friends – including Jo-Ann Kelly, Andy Fernbach, Graham Hines and Brett Marvin. The overall effect, at times, is one of the "blackest"-sounding blues albums ever generated by white Englishmen (and Englishwomen). This is distinctly a late-'60s record at times, in sound and intent, but that's not a problem when you're dealing with talent this prodigious, because it's all honest and unaffected.

A cult treasure, though few picked up on it in its day and few have picked it up since. Not readily comparable to much other late-'60s psychedelia, it's rare that rock combines pretty, accessible melodies and off-the-wall eclecticism and experimentalism so well. Richie Unterberger Allmusic.

One of Analogue Productions' most successful and collectible projects has been the Miles Davis Quintet/The Great Prestige Recordings deluxe box set on 33 1/3 LP.

Featuring a 12" x 12" 16-page gorgeous booklet, packaged with the LPs in a deluxe, heavy-duty box, this set is the end-all of Miles' work for the legendary Prestige label from 1951 through 1956. Stereophile awarded the first incarnation of this set Recording of the Month in their March 1997 issue, giving it five stars for both music and sonics. That was at 33 1/3 RPM. Imagine these same records at 45 RPM!
