Pure Food and Drug Act was a band that was formed in the early 1970s based on the talent and charisma of Don "Sugarcane" Harris. The band began with Paul Lagos (sideman with Johnny Otis, John Mayall) on drums, Larry Taylor (original member Canned Heat), sideman John Mayall, Tom Waits on bass and Randy Resnick on guitar. Resnick was at that time experimenting with one and two handed tapping technique which was later to become a standard guitarist's tool. The group played small rooms in the Los Angeles area for several months, among which the Troubador and the Ash Grove. While the band began searching for a record deal, Larry Taylor began to tire of Don's constant lateness and irresponsibility and decided to continue his career with Mayall…

"The rediscovery of Vinci is a stroke of luck - a Baroque jewel, a musical firework of the finest" (Die deutsche Bühne). The opera was not for nothing the greatest success of the composer Leonardo Vinci.

Genre: Jazz, Fusion, Ethnic Fusion

After his gargantuan orchestral work “The Big Wig” and the improvisational fireworks of “Out of Land” (with Emile Parisien, Vincent Peirani and Michael Wollny) Andreas Schaerer has now immersed himself in a new sound-world. “A Novel Of Anomaly” presents eleven short stories, offering opportunities do delve into more intimate and pared-down vocal textures. Music involves so many levels of communication: verbal, audiovisual, emotional, even body language. In jazz, the spontaneity of improvisation ramps up the suspense and the excitement. And yet in the best situations, instant osmosis and mutual trust can inexplicably kick in.

It was the awakening (Despertando) of a tinge of longing which inspired Diego Pinera to record this album. More than seventeen years after having left his native Uruguay, he re-visits his roots, the influences which first left their mark on him, and the legacy which made him the musician he is today.His choice of compositions is highly personal: tunes by Gato Barbieri and Ernesto Lecuona are clear cultural references to Argentina and Cuba (Pinera also studied in Havana). His own composition “Osvaldo por Nueve” is a homage to his first teacher and mentor Osvaldo Fattoruso. It is also Pinera’s modern take on the ‘candombe’ folklore tradition, popular in Uruguay. The track “Yakarito Terere” is personal too: a composition by his father, inspired by a memory from childhood, of regular excursions into the hinterland of Montevideo.

This is a fantastic album, overflowing with 80's influences! If you are a fan of 80's bands Whitesnake, Iron Maiden et al, you'll love this! The vocals, guitar and lyrics will have you fondly remembering skintight jeans, long permed hair and head-banging at the local youth club!

Label: Decca | Tracks: 45 | Time: 142:00 min

Britten's first great opera, written in 1945, remains a touchstone not only for postwar opera, but also anticipates the direction that postmodern music would take later in the century. Written at a time when high modernism was in full swing, Britten bucked the trends by taking a personal, political and musically eclectic approach. It's a small story with great ramifications: A sadistic fisherman and his violent actions turn him into the bane of his community, resulting in his suicide.

Genre: Funk, Soul

Early funk from The Commodores - a group that spent so much time sleeping later, it's hard to believe they could be so funky early on! There's plenty of that bass-heavy style that would later dominate many Motown combos at the end of the 70s - but the group's really in control of the groove on this one, without any of the cliches that such bassery could lead them into. Lionel Ritchie contributed one nice smooth soul number, «This Is Your Life», and the rest of the album includes «Let's Do It Right», «Wide Open», «The Bump», «Look What You've Done To Me», and the pop funk classic «Slippery When Wet».
