Label: B&C Records/CAS-1026 | Released: 1970 | Genre: Heavy-Progressive

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
A legendary Heavy-Prog album if there ever was one. And a trio at that. These guys look so cool in the liner notes. Man you get Crane and Cann together and look out it’s time to cook !
“Death Walks Behind You” opens with haunting piano lines before the guitar starts to make some noise. Full sound a minute in, vocals follow. A calm with piano after 3 1/2 minutes. It kicks back in. “Vug” opens with some very impressive organ by Crane as the guitar supports. Lots of organ 2 minutes in. The guitar is more prominant after 3 minutes. They’re cooking now ! “Tomorrow Night” is a somewhat catchy tune. Nice organ solo 2 minutes in.Tasteful guitar a minute later. It ends on an experimental note. “7 Streets” opens with organ. Crane used a device to make his Hammond organ sound like church organ on this one. The drumming is excellent on this track but then so is the whole song. This along with “Nobody Else” are my favourites. Some ripping organ and guitar after 3 minutes as they trade solos. I wish all the songs were this dynamic.

Jazz / Bop / Cool / Piano

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. One of the strongest sessions recorded by pianist John Lewis in the 50s – a date that shows depths of his talents that run even greater than his work with the Modern Jazz Quartet, quite possibly because is work on piano is at the forefront of the record throughout! There's a sense of darkness here that really fits the image on the cover – a style that's stated clearly on piano lines that are often as spacious as they are gentle, but which also have a moodier undercurrent below, thanks to Lewis' careful choice of keys and notes.

Hooray! Another outstanding Renaissance album! Compared to the previous album “Ashes are burning”, the bass is more timid, but it still sounds as loud and bottom as Yes and Rush of the 70’s.

Label: Music On Vinyl/MOVLP1678 | Released: 1973 | This Issue: 2017 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Debut release from the magical band FRUUPP, ‘Future Legends’, is an amazing example of relatively early symphonic prog of the highest order originating from Ireland . As a passionate lover of prog-rock, I am very much in love with this LP and their next one ; from the amazing, textured gatefold sleeve graced with some of the best artwork any human can muster (courtesy of Bassist Pete Farrelly) through to the incredible compositions and carefully executed performances of each musician.
Soundtrack – Barry Lyndon (1975) Warner Bros. Records/BS 2903 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Various – Music From The Soundtrack Of Barry Lyndon
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Warner Bros. Records/BS 2903 | Released: 1975 | Genre: Soundtrack

While not the entire score, which would be impossible to assemble on a double let along a single disc, the music contained herein from Stanley Kubrick’s stellar motion picture Barry Lyndon — that starred Ryan O’Neal in the only time he ever actually acted, as well as Marisa Berenson — is a mixed bag of the most delightful sort. With 19 selections on the CD — analogue recorded and remastered in pristine digital sound — the music here stands on its own as an eclectic yet moving collection of pieces that reflect the excesses of 17th and early 18th century cultural mores in royal courts, potato fields, and back alley dances. The main title theme is from Handel, his Sarabande, and is followed by Sean Ó Riada’s gloriously beautiful “Women of Ireland,” performed by the Chieftains, who dig in for a few more before being eased out of the mix by the British Grenadiers’ fife and drum corps.
The Grateful Dead – Anthem Of The Sun (1968) Warner Bros. Records/WS 1749 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Grateful Dead – Anthem Of The Sun
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Warner Bros. Records/WS 1749| Released: 1968 | This Issue: 1978 | Genre: Psychedelic-Rock

On the Grateful Dead’s Anthem of the Sun the studio with its production work dissolves into live performance, the carefully crafted is thrown together with the casually tossed off, and the results are spliced together. The end product is one of the finest albums to come out of San Francisco, a personal statement of the rock aesthetic on a level with the Jefferson Airplane’s After Bathing at Baxters. To be sure, the album has its weak points, but as a total work it is remarkably successful, especially when compared to the first Dead album.

A one-time protégé of Arthur Rubinstein, pianist Janina Fialkowska’s artistry is all the more astonishing considering her return to the concert stage in 2004 following the removal of an aggressive tumour in her left arm. For this recording, she joins the Chamber Players of Canada to perform arrangements of Mozart’s piano concertos K. 413 – 415 for piano and string quintet.
The Allman Brothers Band – Idlewild South (1970) ATCO/SD 33-342 – Original US Presswell Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Allman Brothers Band – Idlewild South
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: ATCO Records/SD 33-342 | Released: 1970 | Genre: Southern-Rock

If you’re going to listen to the Allman Brothers, make sure you have the first four records. The band made The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South, At Fillmore East, and three-fourths of Eat a Peach with its original lineup, before Duane Allman’s fatal motorcycle accident in 1971. The Tom Dowd-produced Idlewild South, their second album, comes off with a little less ferocity than their debut — which is perhaps the result of reaching for new sounds the second time around. “Revival,” the album’s opener, introduces Dickey Betts as a composer.
