Francesco Giuseppe, Imperatore d'Austria e Re d'Ungheria, abbraccia con il suo regno uno dei periodi più ricchi d'eventi della storia europea. Nella sua lunghissima vita furono molti gli eventi tragici a cui dovette assistere: …
Alan will share how just through changing the way you ask for something, you can get things to go in your favour! n both our professional and personal lives, we all too often have difficult subjects to broach, uncomfortable requests to make. We struggle to find the right words, the appropriate formula which will allow us to do so in a way that’s comfortable for us and comfortable for the other person – and so instead we put the conversation off, despite knowing that if we don’t ask for what we want, we almost certainly won’t get it.
This generous 16-song collection provides a comprehensive overview of Robert Palmer's many fine songs, from his early work as an eclectic white soul singer working in a number of styles, to his reign as MTV icon and rock's most sophisticated dresser.
The career of blue-eyed soul singer Robert Palmer was a study in style versus substance. While the performer's earliest work won praise for its skillful assimilation of rock, R&B, and reggae sounds, his records typically sold poorly, and he achieved his greatest notoriety as an impeccably dressed lounge lizard. By the mid-'80s, however, Palmer became a star, although his popularity owed less to the strength of his material than to his infamous music videos: taking their cue from the singer's suave presence, Palmer's clips established him as a dapper, suit-and-tie lady's man who performed his songs backed by a band comprised of leggy models, much to the delight of viewers who made him one of MTV's biggest success stories.
With Jess Roden on vocals and a couple of Toytown psych excursions, in ‘Mr. Job’ and ‘Toyland’, under the belt they released Outward Bown and a self-titled album before Roden quit. The vocals for the latter were re-recorded by the late Robert Palmer, he of ‘Addicted to Love’ success, who went on to pull exactly the same stroke as Roden for the next album, quitting the band just prior to its release. Gordon Neville was recruited to overdub Palmer’s vocals and, now simply calling themselves Alan Bown, 1970′s Listen was the result.
Pictures at an Exhibition is a live album by the English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in November 1971 on Island Records. It is a recording of the band's arrangement of Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky, performed at Newcastle City Hall on 26 March 1971. Emerson wished to arrange the piece after seeing an orchestral performance of it several years before. He bought a copy of the score, and pitched the idea to Lake and Palmer, who agreed to adapt it. Pictures at an Exhibition went to number 2 on the UK Albums Chart and number 10 on the US Billboard 200.
