Silvio Rodríguez is one of the founders of the "Nueva Trova" sound. This was a fusion of musical genres that originated in the 1960s in revolutionary age Cuba.
When Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Terry “Geezer” Butler and Bill Ward formed Black Sabbath in 1969, they created a signature sound that set the blueprint for heavy music and influenced generations of disciples for years to come.

Records from the 1970’s, including their iconic eponymous debut, Black Sabbath (1970), the multi-platinum landmark Paranoid (1970), the platinum albums Master Of Reality (1971), Vol. 4 (1972), and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (1973), and the gold-certified Sabotage (1975), Technical Ecstasy (1976), and Never Say Die!

I was apprehensive about buying the Music On Vinyl edition but after listening to it, I have been amazed at the great sound it has. It has great separation & texture of the instruments. Listen to "Sea Of Joy". The bass is strong and robust. The nylon-strings guitar sounds wonderful. Listen to "Can't Find My Way Home".
Originally comprised of Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek, America was one of the most successful groups of the 1970s. The band blended elements of folk and rock with distinctive three part harmonies. Their best known hits include "A Horse with No Name," "Sister Golden Hair," "Ventura Highway," "Tin Man," "Daisy Jane," and "Lonely People". The band won a 1972 Grammy for Best New Artist following the release of their second album, Homecoming, and was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. This definitive collection includes the following albums: America, Homecoming, Hat Trick, Holiday, Hearts, Hideaway, and Harbor. This Hi-Res collection is not to be missed!
Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
"The sun light the shadows, hurricane is just passed on. I come back to my town, alone and with pain. I do not see my people, roads are desert, I look around me and see life is going away…"
One of the most incredible treasures of the many released in Italy during the seventies. Alphataurus was a very talented (and obscure) band made of five elements arounf the main figure and role of Pietro Pellegrini on piano, organ, moog, vibraphone and spinet. The musicianship is at highest peaks, very captivating and convincing.
…After listening to this disc countless times, one is amazed at Stravinsky's musical invention and genius. Stravinsky is most certainly the star of the recording. However, for such a young and relatively inexperienced conductor - at least on the international stage - Eiji Oue has certainly made an impact with this debut recording. He could not have chosen his partners better. Composer, orchestra and engineer have been combined to make his performances grace the ear and soul, and cannot be too highly recommended.
…This Années de pèlerinage is unquestionably one of the finest releases thus far during the Liszt bicentennial. Time will tell, but it also may be the finest recording of the work to date. Not to be missed.
